BREAKING NEWS FIRST...
Ryan Malone out 6 weeks with broken bone in hand...
Should you tell Jordan Staal he is staying...or should I?
More on this tomorrow.
As for tonight...
Let it be said: Sid the Kid to Geno tonight at the 7:04 mark of the 3rd period was the beginning of a beautiful friendship....
...Moving to the games elsewhere in the NHL:
OK, so remember how last night I said Buffalo was losing tonight...
Oops....Buffalo is a machine... I am more embarrassed than Fabio when he got hit by that bird on that roller coaster...
Last night, I almost said that Jose Theodore was going to dominate in his return to Montreal..
Well he didn't... nothing like a 5-goal third period to pee on your parade.
The sold-out crowd of 21,273 chanted "Theo! Theo!" after Alex Kovalev scored his third of the season at 12:48, then cheered loudly once again as Mike Johnson made it a three-goal lead at 13:54 on the Canadians' fifth goal of the period.
Could you imagine, how horrible this would be? 21,000 people mocking you. But hey Karma is a bitch...Theo walked out on his girlfriend and there, born again, to hook up with Paris Hilton.
Ottawa defeats the Devils 8-1. What happened to the Devils?.... is Ottawa that good? I am sure they will be in a wonderful mood when we play them on Tuesday...
The Isles won in OT against the Carolina Hurricanes, who play 6 games a week.
Wonder if Ted Nolan was crying after this one?
St.Louis rebounded quite nicely after a bad loss last night. Lee Stempniak had a three-point game.
Another late comeback for the Canucks....I really like this team, especially with Luongo , who turned away 37 pucks tonight
Quote of the night from the Atlanta game
"When you're front-runners, it's a little bit easier," coach Bob Hartley said. "These points in October are worth just as much as those points in April. And we found out last year that those points in April are real tough to get. I'm not saying it's easier in October, but it's a little easier to breathe. You've got a little more to build on at this time of year."
So true...6 wins in 8 games for Hot-lanta...
Tampa Bay beat Washington....AO scored... So did Semin...
Ryan Craig, Tampa's leading goal scorer is out 4 weeks with a knee injury. Who the hell is Ryan Craig? I need to start paying attention.
The Rangers sneak by the Maple Leafs... remember me complaining about how people are way too into Brendan Shanahan? Well just another reason that I am a moron. 8th goal of the year, and lone shootout goal.
The Stars get a shutout from Mike Smith making his NHL debut... maybe they should start him in the playoffs for Marty Turco. ZING.
UPDATE: Mike Smith in the running for Pensblog's Most Boring Hockey Name.
Two other late games just finished up, The Wild and Oilers get W's over the Sharks and Wings.
That's it for me folks
Good night and Keep working in them corners.
