I don't know if you heard, but it's cold out. Almost too cold for hockey. Almost
The Top Line
The Rangers obliterated the Maple Leafs. Yikes. ESPN, Sports Illustrated, The Local Take #1, The Local Take #2
Boston 4, Winnipeg 1 - The Bruins netted two goals from Torey Krug, the player who I believe owns the most incongruous first and last names.
Colorado 4, San Jose 3 - Nathan McKinnon grabbed two goals in this one as well, significantly more impressive than scoring on the Jets.
Buffalo 2, New Jersey 1 - The Sabres are no longer in the running to be historically bad. Congratulations!
New York Rangers 7, Toronto 1 - On the plus side, the Maple Leafs got to play outside!
Ottawa 4, Montreal 3 (OT) - Clarke McArthur, scorer of the game winning goal, has 14 goals on the season. How many fun facts can you name about the Ottawa Senators?
Florida 5, Nashville 4 (SO) - Nashville scored twice in the third to get the loser point. ASAS.
Carolina 3, New York Islanders 2 - With guys like Vanek and Tavares, you would think the Islanders would be better. This is something I assume they say on Long Island all the time.
St. Louis 6, Columbus 2 - Somehow, this wasn't the biggest blowout of the night. Congratulations, Ohio!
Detroit 5, Dallas 1 - And this, this is small potatoes. Even though Henrik Zetterberg got two goals on the road.
Minnesota 5, Washington 3 - Ryan Suter earned a hat trick, but more impressive, the Wild were the first team to ever score 5 goals while getting less than 12 shots. How was your night, Braden Holtby?
Philadelphia 5, Phoenix 3 - Philly and Phoenix pheuded but the Phlyers phought phor phive phinishes and a phantastic phictory.
Los Angeles 3, Vancouver 1 - I always see Carter's last name in a scoreline and for a brief bit hope it's Anson, but it's always Jeff.
