So that means you have two extra tickets, eh? Interesting...

6 or 7 points out still, even with that. 6-7 isn't bad, but the 3-4 teams to jump is tough. Gotta get some help on the way.

Thanks for that. Didn't even know the Leafs were playing.

Yeah, they looked so much better than the bs. tuukka let in a soft goal in the first. it was a nice pass by malkin, but tuukka def should've gotten his pad over. he gave up a goal on a blast from Malkin in the third from a weird angle...usually those are saves. other than that he made a lot of nice saves on malkin and Crosby. was very surprised to see the bs steal that game last night

I understand both ways. Something like Smith can derail you emotionally. A hockey game is 100 different instances and 1 can make a difference in a game. Each game, and situation is different. So it's not a blanket response. Another is Lilja against the Ducks in 07 gave it up in OT that gave the Ducks the win. Sure Wings had more chances to score but didn't. They were in that situation there and without the gaffe, they don't lose

it was super entertaining hockey, and i fully expect the Bruins to be a contender in the East once their full, healthy lineup starts clicking again

Malkin's shot was perfectly placed and was a god damn rocket, can't fault Tuukka there

i'll take the loss last night, games like that happen. as long as the Pens keep playing that way, i don't see anyone in the metro being able to keep up with them, even with how well the NY teams and Caps are playing

It's mid-season, so how about some mid-season awards? If the season were to end today and you got to pick individual award winners, who would give hardware to?

For me:
Vezina: Rinne, Fleury, Price
Adams: Trotz, Laviolette, Capuano
Calder: Forsberg, Ekblad, Gaudreau
Norris: Giordano, Weber, Boychuk
Hart: Voracek, Nash, Rinne

Explain yourself!
Vezina: A lot of potential hardware for the Preds. Rinne, along with Laviolette and his system, are the two biggest reasons for the team's success. They play fantastic team defense which benefits Rinne. But he's solid all around. I hated leaving BOBROVSKY off the list, but had to for now.

Adams: Really, give this to anyone of those three and I'd be happy. But I just love the patience that Capuano has displayed and how, after a lot of pieces changed in the off-season for the Isles, he was able to continue and even accelerate the team's upward progression.

Calder: Here's where my defenseman bias shows. Forsberg is wowing the league. But for Ekblad to come in and do what he's doing as a rookie DEFENSEMAN on a team like the PANTHERS is nothing short of awesome. He looks comfortable at both ends of the rink, doing what usually takes 3-ish seasons for an average defenseman to do.

Norris: Giordano has come out of nowhere to lead all defensemen in points and still play responsibly for a team that has had ups and downs. He's leading by example. Of course, I wouldn't mutter if Weber finally won. Also, love what Boychuk has done on the Isles this year. He's blossomed getting out of Chara's shadow.

Hart: Toughest one. Voracek has been awesome to watch have a phenomenal year. Nash will be my most unpopular choice probably, but he's showing that two-way excellence that we knew he had the potential for. But Rinne... that guy has just been phenomenal.

yeah it was a rocket, but at that angle it's not a goal tuukka should be giving up.

bruins really needed that win last night. gotta make a run and get like 16 points in the next 10 games so they aren't on the bubble for the next couple months.

what's the deadline talk in Boston? i would assume they are still approaching it as buyers...would be interesting to see if they add any pieces.

B's are a very interesting team this year, kinda scary to have them under the radar

they keep saying here that the bruins have had scouts at every CBJ game for the past month.

I don't know who they would be looking at though. maybe atkinson or calvert?

RIP to JP Parise, long time nhler/Islander who scored the OT winner 11 seconds in to knock out the Rangers to give the Islanders their first ever playoff series victory in 1975 as well as Zach's dad.

Cancer sucks.

They need a top line winger and top 4 defenseman. Gonna be tough. I don't think anyone major gets moved.

Just thought I would use this time to thank the Vancouver Canucks for letting Alain Vigneault go. Best thing the happen to the NY Rangers in 20 years! Man I love this team!

hear some rumors that Juilen might be going.

If that happens, I will personally pick him up from the airport once Berube gets canned.

They are on a hell of a roll. The cynical shit I am, I'd be worried about winning too much now, instead of enjoying it, if it was my team. Not saying that'll happen to the Rangers, just how I'd be thinking.

Rangers really are so good right now. Steam rolled over the Kings. I haven't watched much of the Rangers this year, honestly haven't watched much hockey at all (compared to other years). Man, they are a fast team now.

Had to many seasons where we didn't win until it was to late. Every point matters, so I will take wins whenever they come haha
