Huge props to HT for posting the games for each night. I really enjoy that.

Criminy, what the hell is going on in the Ducks vs Detroit game... Bobby Ryan, Ryan Getzlaf, and Kyle Palmieri getting into figjts (Palmieri's first...if you wanna call it a fight).... Abdelkader with the HT and Miller and Ericsson dropping the gloves?

Well, at least is was entertaining. VF was pulled...did not look all that swell this evening.

There's a buzz growing here in Columbus about the CBJ, which is awesome.

I'm glad they are moving to our division. Should be a solid rivalry pretty quickly; even if its mostly just a rivalry between fans more than players.

And the Rangers miss the playoffs.

That would be the most epic turn of events ever.

I'm pulling for CBJ. Going to be tough. They've played more games than the teams they trail and their schedule coming up ain't exactly easy, but maybe they are just actually a good team and this isn't a fluke. I hope so. I was born in Ohio, would love to see that team do well.

A bunch of us who watched some CBJ games early said they looked like a completely different team. They are... an actual team. They play together. They don't have great skill, but it's fun to watch 'em.

I hope they make the postseason, too. I really like that city.

What is this a frickin Columbus love-in? They are just another division foe now AFAIC. The more we step on their necks and keep them down the happier I am. Starting with making their future more bleak at the trade deadline. Brassard or Anisimov must go and for peanuts. They can keep their underperforming, overpriced JJ and Umbergers to provide "veteran leadership" for the next generation of CBJ failures.

As a team from Ohio, they deserve to be treated as scum. They need to get good enough to be relevant before people remember that.

Opposite side from Columbus

Was born in Salem, which is outside of Youngstown, or about 75 miles south of Cleveland.

I almost feel bad for Stamkos. I know his defensive game blows, but he still deserves better than this. If they trade MSL Stamkos will be on his own.

ain't that the truth!

Bad team, lots of holes, but he's not nearly the well-rounded player that people who want to shove him into the top-5 debate say he is.

Great scorer, lots of work to do on the rest of his game.

I would still say he is the 3rd best player. His goal scoring ability more than makes up for his lack of defensive ability. I think he's better than Toews, Kovalchuk, Datsyuk, etc. Maybe Karlsson is ahead of him, but I would like to see Karlsson repeat his success before I put him above Stamkos.

Sarge looks to have found his old self. He looks good out there. Also... Ottawa looks damn good. Scary team.

They have coped amazingly with their injuries. It'll be interesting to see how they'll react when they get some of their guys back.

Hopefully Ottawa continues to do well for the remainder of the season, because I do not want the Penguins playing them in the first round.

Good news for the BJs! San Jose falls 2-0 to the red hot Wild.

Tampa Bay's furious comeback falls short. Score like 3 goals in 5 minutes (no points for Stamkos)
