You don't have to worry about the Sens.  Rangers are really strange to me.  They are punching below their weight class so far.

I mean if Shesterkin is not playing up to what he did last season (which understandably would be a huge task to follow) and guys like Kreider not playing at a 50-goal pace that he did last season (which is known that wasn't going to be sustainable), the drop-off in points looks more apparent.

There was an article on nhl.com arguing which team was gonna make the playoffs first - the Wings, or the Sabres.  I don't think either of them are getting there this year, but next year could be a different story.  Both have obvious holes to fill, but both are very promising - and fun to watch.

if the Panthers keep playing the way they do at their pace, I can see them miss and the Red Wings get in.

Heh, crazy Wings/Sabres game in the wake of this last night.

Wings went down 4-1, tie it in the third, 4-4. Can't pull ahead despite a long 5 on 3 advantage late and going 0 for 7 on PPs overall. Then in the shootout they hit two posts and ultimately lose to one shooter scoring against them.

Another case of, had it been Husso in net I don't think it would have gone past regulation, they likely would have won.

Yeah, tough one there.  The OT was boring as shit though.  That move Jack Quinn pulled of was kinda dirty.  That kid looks pretty good.  He had 2 goals against the Blues last week, and another in their loss against TB on Monday (I was at both games).

And I'm off to see the Sabres vs the Avs tonight.   :metal

Oh, that shootout winner was an absolute beauty, no doubt.

Earlier on a Sabres player had another crazy shot. It was a sharp angle shot, and the initial impression was it went off the crossbar and across, which would be normal for that angle. But replay showed it actually went off the side of the goalie's head, off the post, and then behind him and across. Incredible that happened and it didn't go in.

Well, a solid Kings win against the Yotes, 5-3.  It's something to build off of.  A small step into hopefully a right direction.

On another note, I'm looking at the highlights of other games, Matty Beniers scoring the OT winning goal 7 seconds in to give the Kraken another win.  This guy is legit and the Kraken doesn't need to rush into him giving a big contract next season since he's still got a year of ELC left after this.

Kraken are 11-1-1 in their last 12. [Editó whoopsÖthatís 13] Imma expect a bit more raised eyebrows.  :rollin

Seriously though. I know the NHL can get ďstreakyĒ. I just have that new car smell about it because itís fun to have a home town team after waiting 40 years for it.

EDIT- to be fair though. From watching all the talk in this thread, Iím sensing a bit of an Eastern slant to the entire conversation.

Geographically, yes, we're counted on the Montana census.

Honestly though, Alberta is basically Texas of the North. Swap our mountains for an ocean and it's basically a wash. Oil, cattle, conservatives.

The Bruins have had a pretty favorable strength of schedule so far, but after tomorrow's game against Chicago, their next 10 games are:

@ TB  W 5-3
@ Florida L 5-2
Canes W 3-2
TB W 3-1
Avs W 5-1
Vegas
@ Avs
@ AZ
@ Vegas
NYI

Perhaps the Bruins didn't get the Avs' best effort tonight, but the B's dominated them. Other than maybe some sort of fluky goal or something like that happening, the Avs were never in this game.
I've watched the Bruins for 50+ years now, and this is the fastest and best skating team they've ever had.

That was a soft goal by the Leafs in OT. That cannot go in from that range.

Eh, looked like a good shot to me.  It's not like it was a Chris Osgood moment where he let one in from center ice.

They are supposed to be a tribute to the old Seattle Metropolitans uniforms from the 1917 team that won the Stanley Cup. So they are supposed to have that feel of being from the WWI era.

On that level I suppose it works.  :mehlin

I stand corrected!!! I shouldíve checked before I posted. But I just read that itís in tribute to a post WWII team that we had called the Seattle Ironmen.

I had honestly never heard of them.

The Leafs have been in a lot of 1-goal games.  Builds character I hear.  Edit... 14 of their 26 games have been decided by one goal.

Binnington was a goon in a past life - probably one of the Hansen brothers.  In this life, he's just a sore fucking loser.  What the hell's with chirping the opposing team's bench after they got you pulled?  What a clown.  Zero class.  Just 'chirp' them with your play.

Heís a prick. Plain and simple. Berube publicly called him out in the presser. Said Ďbe a goalie, do your job and stop pucksí

The Blues are a mess. There are so many bad contracts right now that they canít even do anything about it. NTCís galore. Rough times ahead!
