Hey, I'm back. Did I miss anything?
The Top Line
Montreal 3, Buffalo 1 - This make sense
Carolina 4, New Jersey - Yeah, this too, I guess.
Winnipeg 3, New York Islanders 2 - We should make sure that the Jets start wearing throwbacks, at least 2 games a week.
Ottawa 6, Washington 4 - Did the Senators acquire Steen? Thats a lot of goals.
Nashville 4, Columbus 0 - Sergei Krivokrasov. Just wanted to toss that name out there.
Detroit 6, Boston 1 - I missed all of the Boston consternation after this game. I can't tell if I am happy or sad about that.
Tampa Bay 4, Philadelphia 2 - All attention in this game was on Vinny Lecavalier, I'm sure.
New York Rangers 5, Florida 2 - Complain about playing he day before Thanksgiving, but the Rangers got to go to Miami.
Pittsburgh 6, Toronto 5 (SO) - How do things like this happen? 10 goals, and then everyone freezes up. Actually, the Leafs didn't even score in the 3rd. ASAS.
Phoenix 3, Minnesota 1 - The Coyotes and Wild always play around Thanksgiving. That's weird.
St. Louis 4, Colorado 1 - There is no stopping the Steen Engine! (dibs on that nickname).
Chicago 3, Calgary 2 - The Blackhawks scored all 3 in the final period. Cold looded.
San Jose 3, Los Angeles 2 (SO) - I feel like these are two teams I would enjoy watching more. ASAS
Vancouver 5, Ottawa 2 - It's like Canadians don't even celebrate Thanksgiving.
Edmonton 3, Nashville 0 - I mean, at least the Preds took the day off.
Philadelphia 2 Winnipeg 1 - Think about someone from Winnipeg talking to someone from Philadelphia. Smile inwardly.
Boston 3, New York Rangers 2 - I'm so happy that the Bruins were so resiliant, able to recover from their beating.
Pittsburgh 3, Tampa Bay 0 - The Lightning just don't play well against Pennsylvania.
Detroit 5, New York Islanders 0 - It appears that someone put a quarter in the Red Wings.
Anaheim 5, Calgary 2 - Are we to the point in the season that we will not see another Flames win this season?
San Jose 6, St. Louis 3 - Great, if underrated matchup.
Washington 3, Montreal 2 (SO) - This is an underwhelming, if overrated matchup. ASAS
Colorado 3, Minnesota 1 - Seems like a good time to note that the Wild are without Zach Parise
New Jersey 5, Carolina 2 - What happened since Wednesday? Too much turkey?
Columbus 4, Edmonton 2 - Sad.
Buffalo 3, Toronto 2 (SO) - Waiting for good news for Toronto. My heart goes our to you. ASAS.
Chicago 2, Dallas 1 (SO) - 11 round shootout. Just flip a damn coin. ASAS.
