Shoutout to my dad, who is celebrating a birthday today. I'll explain what a shoutout is when I see you.
The Top Line
St. Louis 3, Boston 2 (SO) - Derek Roy scored a shoot and regulation goal. I'm changing my last name to Roy. Ryan Roy. ASAS
Philadelphia 4, Buffalo 1 - I was amused by the number of articles I saw wonering if it was time to start taking the Flyers seriously. The answer is "no" if only because the question was posed after they beat hte Sabres.
Nashville 4, Toronto 2 - Seth Jones is pretty good.
Detroit 4, Carolina 3 - It seems like these two teams play every night, even though that's impossible. Also, congratulations to Gustav Nyquist for having the least intimidating name in the league.
Chicago 6, Winnipeg 3 - Sorry, Jets fans. Patrick Kane feed on your boos. Also your booze.
New York Rangers 3, Dallas 2- I'm glad my jokes haven't ruined the Rangers' spirit. They are now .500.
Colorado 4, Phoenix 3 (OT) - Here is an example of another Roy who is excellent at hockey things.
Edmonton 4, Florida 1 - Way to go, Oilers! You are less bad!
New Jersey 2, Los Angeles 1 (OT) - Jaromir Jagr tied Gordie Howe for most game winning goals all time with his game winner last night.
