Santa must have brought Halak a glove hand for an early Christmas present.

New Jersey Devils suck! 3 seconds left in the game on the powerplay and they give up the lead. Pro-line blown!

He's doing that so that he has an intact forward unit to get the matchup he wants against the other team once the PP expires.

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of that line of thinking. Probably my first real disagreement with what Hitchcock is doing/has done here.
Ahh I see what your saying, and I'd have to agree.

As a side note, I have liked how Hitch has tried to keep certain lines together for the most part (assuming players are healthy) during 5-on-5. Although he did recently change Arnott to the fourth line, the Steen - Backes- Osh and now the Perron - Bergs - Stewart lines are really starting to click. One of my biggest qualms with Murray and Payne was their constant shuffling of lines. Seemed to send a message that things needed to be "fixed" by the coach (or in other words, the coach lacked confidence in the players working out whatever production problems they were having on their own), where Hitch keeping them pretty constant tells the players he has faith in them and their abilities.

In regards to the powerplay, I see no reason to try and "force it" by keeping your 5-on-5 lines together. Get the players out the that give you the best chance to score. But I am by no means an expert at coaching, so I'm willing to defer to Hitch's decisions, especially with the way he's got them playing.

He's got the flu. Apparently more the a couple of players have gone through, or currently have it, for Blues.

Yeah I guess Cole not doing too terribly tonight. Hasn't really done anything good but he not messing up either so I guess he's about average for the night.

Columbus had a 3-1 lead on Nashville with under 2 min to play and Nashville won.

Edit: we need a Western Conference Othergames thread, considering how tight the race is going to be this year. Yes? No?
