Read something ingesting in THN. We have 9 players that have played every game, tied for most in the league with Vancouver. Pretty ingesting considering the injury troubles we had early on.
The Bruins have used the least number of players, with 24 (we have 30), and the next closest is only 26, and two 27s
It's not too much. Foster has little value at this point beyond his shot. Palmieri and Veilleux are fringe NHLers if they even play at all for Minnesota. Though it wouldn't surprise me since they took on Christensen and have had serious injury issues all season.
If anything, the Devils made out better than I thought they would because they cleared out some contracts. If the big problem with Zidlicky was him being unhappy playing for Yeo, then it's not a bad deal giving up players who weren't even helping NJ and two picks for a guy who could help the power play and transition game.
Good night for the Rangers. They gain a point over NJ and still have a game in hand. They also have a game in hand with Philly and the Pens
BTW, remember back in December when I was saying the Bruins could possibly be a paper tiger, and that all their wins were against weak opponents, and they had lots of home games, and struggled against good teams?
Since January 12, the Bruins are 8-9-2, or 8-11 (4 SO wins) if you look at it my way.
Only 4 ROW in the last 19 games -- those wins against NJ, Ottawa, St. L and Washington. Weird.
The Rangers in that span are 11-5-2, or 11-7 (2 SO wins)
