The Top Line
And to bring you into the holidays.... Butt goal! Sporting News, Fox, The Local Take #1, The Local Take #2
New York Rangers 2, Toronto 1 - The Rangers flat out dominated this game. Good thing power is out in Toronto.
Buffalo 2, Phoenix 1 (OT) - The butt goal game. Thats what it takes for Buffalo.
Anaheim 3, Washington 2 - The Ducks held Washington to under 20 shots, which is not good.
Columbus 4, Carolina 3 - The Hurricanes losing at home is a good sign that they need a break, I think.
New York Islanders 3, Detroit 0 - Everything in this game was done in the second period. Like, everything.
Ottawa 5, Pittsburgh 0 - Did the Penguins not know there was a game last night?
Tampa Bay 6, Florida 1 - When Miami finds out they have a hockey team, they are going to be pissed about this score.
Philadelphia 4, Minnesota 1 - The Wild are playing... poorly, of late.
Boston 6, Nashville 2 - What is the deal with all the blowouts last night? Pretty loose going into Christmas.
Chicago 5, New Jersey 2 - The Devils had 2 shots through the first period. That's not good.
Calgary 4, St Louis 3 (SO) - Calgary is still scrappy, I'll give them that much. ASAS
Edmonton 6, Winnipeg 2 - WEll, I have to say this was unexpected.
San Jose 5, Colorado 4 (SO) - This might be a preview of a late round playoff series. Ife the Sharks get out of the first round, that is.
Dallas 5, Los Angeles 2 - And with that, Christmas in Texas is saved!
