We are a quarter of the way through the season already. A quarter of the way through the Dumps.
The Top Line
St. Louis 4, Buffalo 1 - It should be noted that the Sabres were often the last place team on those power rank lists.
Toronto 5, New York Islanders 2 - David Clarkson scored for the first time as a Leaf. Finally.
Philadelphia 5, Ottawa 2 - Craig Berube for coach of the year.
Montreal 6, Minnesota 2 - Max Pacioretty with the hat trick to help embarrass Minnesota. I thought we were cool, Canada.
Nashville 2, Detroit 0 - The Red Wings are on a bit of a tumble, with their losing streak reaching 7.
Boston 2, New York Rangers 1 - The Rangers are below .500, yet somehow don't have a single OT or shootout loss.
Colorado 5, Chicago 1 - Not a good showing for Fox's #1 team in the country.
Edmonton 7, Columbus 0 - Just don't ever speak of this again, Ohio.
Florida 3, Vancouver 2 (SO) - The Panthers and Vancouver somehow have been tied together historically with several big trades. That's no excuse for Vancouver losing to Florida at home. ASAS
Los Angeles 5, Tampa Bay 2 - Hey, doesn't Justin Williams look a little bit like a young Bill Murray?
