Man I can't catch a break with you today Dom. Good catch again. I sure could use a couple of those eagle eyes of yours. This situation however was sadly for me at least not a CCC moment. The two were scored in the shout out not in OT. The point still stands however that the Kings managed to put 5 of them top shelf on Price. Though in was note worthy.

Alex Galchenyuk out indefinitely with a lower body injury for the Habs.

He has 23 points in 25 games thus far this season.

It would have been nice to see the Habs take on 0-for-3 on their West Coast swing, putting them more within reach. But they managed to salvage the game against the Kings.

The Penguins offense is clicking on all cylinders right now, and is a treat to watch.

One general observation a quarter of the way through the season - I know the players voted on the five-day-bye which resulted in the compressed schedule, but as a paying customer, I would vote against it; if we actually had a vote.

I work evenings and enjoy coming home and watching hockey, but the product most nights is dull and boring. It's palpable teams are gassed. The Hawks were running on fumes the other night against Winnipeg, and there are suggestions that the injuries are also a byproduct.

With the playoff races so tight, teams are playing not to lose with very tired players.

So I would prefer two things - no compressed schedule, and regulation wins worth three points.

Seriously, they all have horse shoes shoved up their ***** to get the bounces they do and so often. Price too, as godly as he is, sometimes he doesnt see anything and they just hit him.

Not surprising. They played almost every game at home to start the season.

The quote below was take from the pro hockey rumors site in an article by Craig Custance. Apologies for not being able to provide a link as I am not a subscriber to the site. The article speaks to the move by Bettman to enact revenge on teams who were creative in circumventing the cap. The Bruins are listed as one of only two NHL teams that are not facing that situation. Some posters have commented in the past on the necessary moves that were made to get the team out of cap hell. Wondering if that reality and the double wammy of expansion and CR issues will provide the Bruins with a position of strength to negotiate with some teams in the attempt to make the long anticipated move(s) to improve.

I have very little knowledge on the nuts and bolts with Cap issues. Many of this board certainly do. Wondering if they might agree with Custance's take on the situation or of if they have a different take?

"Two teams who managed to stay in good shape contract wise–while contending– are the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins, with the Pens not having any legacy costs. But the teams below, according to Custance, are the ones who suffered from the wrath of Bettman".

At least they only got one point. Detroit got two against Winnipeg after getting two easy goals off horrible plays by Hellebuyck and (I think) Enström respectively.

So both Hellebuyck and Allen give up bad rebounds from low percentage shots on the same night against our division rivals. Why does that never happen to us when all we do is throw the puck on the net from those positions?

The standings are very tight. Washingtion is actually in the 2nd WC spot and are as close as 1st in the conference than last.

1st Habs 37pts
WC2 Wsh 31pts
15th Isles 25pts

Will be a very entertaining race.

Also, there is still hope that the Habs miss again even with another historically good start of 11-1-1. Plenty of time for that!

There are 16 teams in the Eastern Conference, Isles are 16th, which makes it even more remarkable. Imagine if the west wakes up and the east remains this tight. You could miss playoffs by just a couple of points and have a great shot at a top 3 pick.

The east has put up a stellar 82-47-19 record against the west so far this year. That's taking about 62% of the total available points. A decided advantage.

Only one eastern team has a record below .500 with Tampa currently at 0-4. The Panthers have only played 3 games and are 1-1-1. They could, should that trend hold, both make a move up the standing when the schedule changes in their favour. Cause for concern for the Bruins? Something to keep an eye on perhaps.

Rangers at 8-2, Jackets at 9-3-3 lead the pack while the Bruins are at 4-4.
The Rangers became early front runners in the east when they banked points from the west early in the season. Jackets were off to a modestly slow start but made hay as well when the schedule working in both teams favour. Seems like the west is the place to play right now if you're looking to grab some points.

Jeebus Christmas, for some reporters, even the bad news pieces on that team are nothing but water carrying, boot licking fawn jobs!

Side note: Was Petry trying to save Palmieri by dragging him away at the end, knowing that he was to blame for this?
And they seriously gave Palmieri two minutes for GK interference? Even though they gave Price 2+2 for roughing, that's pretty bad.
