What a glorious ass-raping the Leafs handed the Avs last night.  Their 3rd string goalie got put in unexpectedly after Kuemper was injured in the morning skate, and the team left him hanging out to dry on at least 4 of the Leafs' goals, while he let in a couple of ones that he should've played better.  Matthews with the hattie, and all three goals were nasty - the first was particularly filthy.  Check out the highlights if you haven't seen it already.

@ JD... NHL fans are always glad to have "new" ones come into the fold.  Nice to see the Kraken looking decent (last nights loss notwithstanding) lately.  I mean, they have more regular time wins than Dallas and Tampa - the latter leading the league in "ties"
If I can do it, it's idiot proof.

I'm actually really impressed with their play since the 6 game losing streak.   2-1-1 on the recent road trip and 4-1-1 in their last 6.   And a few of those wins have been against really good teams.   But I think a real test is coming tomorrow when we get a rematch with the Oilers at home.   The wins against the Canes, Capitols and Panthers on the road prove that we are capable of pulling off a win, and we are certainly playing better now than we were when we went to Edmonton in October. 

What I was not expecting is the 3+GAA from Grubauer.  I haven't looked at all the stats line by line, but so far Driedger is playing better...but suddenly turned up on the injured list after his last win, so I'm not sure what's going on there.

Blues season just got even more interesting. Binnington and Faulk out the next (10) days with COVID protocols. 6 games in the next 11 days out your #1 goalie and a defender who has been a beast the last two years. Already down Bozak from COVID and you know there will be more.

I didn't watch the Kings/Flames game due to recovering from the booster shot.  Looking at the stats, once again, the Kings lose a one goal game.  17 of the 22 games has came done to being either tied or the score being within one goal in the last 5 min. and the Kings haven't been winning those battles.  Don't think this team is as bad on paper as it seems, but man, it's disheartening to continuously lose these kinds of one-goal games and it brings up all of the what-ifs at seasons-end.

Man alive can Forsberg (G, Ott) be streaky.  49 SOG by the 'Canes last night, and he looked like a 2-time Vezina winner.  He's done the same to Toronto in the past.

Buffalo buffalo'g last night.  Up 4-1 half way thru the 2nd, and lose 7-4.  :lol

Yep, should be interesting to see how they do in the next two weeks.

This game had all the earmarks of the Sutter-era Kings.  Obviously, that's not surprising since Darryl Sutter coaches the Flames.  Once the Flames went up 3-1, it was over.

The Kings aren't a bad team, but there's so much youth on the roster.  They're not there yet, but they're getting there and might be there by the end of the season.

Bruins,without Marchand and MvAvoy, played their best game of the year last night and lost to the Lightning in OT. I didn't like how Swayman played Stamkos' GWG, but for the first time this season, the Bruins take a point out one of their losses.

Here's something I don't think we've talked about much this season, but I know we are all keeping an eye on.  Alex Ovechkin has made it to 750 goals in his NHL career yesterday. 

16 goals away from Jagr.  51 goals away from Howe. 144 away from Gretzky.  Ovi started a 5 year deal this season.  I think he can do it.  I think he can beat Gretzky.  Didn't think that last season, due to him not playing a lot due to protocols, etc. and that lockouts and the Covid stoppage definitively put that quest in doubt.  Nowadays, I'm leaning more towards I think he can break all-time goal record.

Sooooo

This Chiefs/Broncos Game is looking ugly early. And it’s my understanding that this is the one that they flexed in in order to remove the Seahawks 49ers game? The one that ended on a dramatic final play? And was infinitely entertaining to watch?

Wouldn't this be more appropriate for the ...um..NFL thread, or should we go there to get our Kraken update?

He has a real shot, but it will be a matter of  will be how productive he can stay and will he stay healthy.  I am sure he will play as long as possible to try and get the record.

This exactly.  And how good the rest of the team continues to play.  He still needs good players around him to give him the chances to get this kind of goal production.  Obviously, if he stays health, and if the team keeps talented players, and if Father Time doesn't take a toll on him, he can do it.  Those are 3 big "ifs" though.

Art Ross - McJesus (Panarin, Point)
Rocket - Matthews (Debrincat, Rantanen)
Norris - Makar (Hedman, Jones)
Vezina - Vasilevsky (Lehner, Varlamov or Sorokin ... whoever wins the #1 job)
Adams - Colliton (Gallant, Green)
Calder - Caufield (no clue)
Selke - no clue

Man, I really am the kiss of death.  At least Gallant is doing well!

Not looking too good on my team standing predictions either (particularly with the Isles, Flyers, Hawks and Canucks).  Vigneault has to be the coach next on the hot seat, no?  Despite the Isles record (and current 11 game winless streak), I can't see Trotz being in trouble.

Ovi only needed 79 games to go from 700 to 750, which is quite a bit faster than the other guys that scored that many goals.  Gordie Howe took 106 games, Gretzky 116, and Jagr 182.  Ovi's on pace for 70 goals this season.  He'll likely cool off, but still, he can net 50 this year, which is crazy.

And right on cue, Green and Vingeault are out.

I think Vingeault gets another job quick enough. I'm betting  Travis Green is done in the league.

Well, it started off with the Canucks' coach being fired with the implication that Benning is next.  Then Benning got fired, so I had to change the title to reflect that Canucks is going through an organizational shift and now Vingeault is out, and there's only so many characters I can use.

On another note, Bruce Boudreau (Caps, Ducks, Wild) is now the coach for the Canucks.  Maybe he can try to inject some heart into that team.
