Flyers - Rags tonight. Hmm, who to root for? Flyers behind the Rags in the standings so it would make sense to be for the Flyers tonight. But I can't, I just can't.

After being thrashed by the Pens last night, the Rags played the second game of a back-to-back tonight and took it to the Flyers.

Yessir!

Not sure I knew Niemi was on Montreal's team. But, he got the win in D.C.

Niemi's first win of the season ..... versus the vaunted Craps. Was 0-5-1 with a 4.85 GAA. Yep, a 4.85 prior to tonight.

Golden Knights lost to the Panthers tonight in OT, giving the LVG 64 points, 1 point behind best-in-the-league Tampa Bay. Both have played 45 games. This is incredible.

Galchenyuk looked horrid. He fell a lot, a lot. Blew passes to other guys, blew accepting passes... Maybe he is trying to get them to trade him.

I expected the Caps to put up 7 on Niemi. He ended up as the announced #1 star.

The Caps seem determined to only lose when it hurts the Penguins.

Sad watching the Craps cave in OT. I have not seen a better OT team than our Pens.

It was nive seeing two Caps looses this weekend, but it is unfortunate that one was to the Flyers.

Vegas now leads the entire NHL in points. I watched a fair amount of their game today vs. Carolina. They are a confident group.

With the exception of the Flyers winning, it was a good night for the Penguins in the Metro. They beat the Canes, both the Rangers and the CBJ lost out West, and the NJD lost in Boston.

Flyers v. Craps tonight. Another tough choice.

A lot of bad turnovers and poor choices.

Stephenson goes from no goals in 28 games to two in 47 seconds.

The second one was a beauty. In the pregame, they mentioned the Isles are desperate for goal tending (currently getting thumped by the Leafs 4-0).

Neither of these two teams look formidable tonight.

True, so you know the Caps are going to give one up late and then win in OT for a three-point game. I hate these two teams.

Leafs chase the King just under four minutes into the second.

Didn't see the interference but the Devils were really unhappy with Goudas. Zajack went after throwing hard but landing few. As long as there are Goudas and Wilsons to deal with Reaves will be a useful commodity.

No no no... didn't you see other people's posts? Reaves is apparently only useful if he 100% eliminates all physical contact by the other team. Only useful if the other team comes onto the ice in tutus and toe-picks. There is no feat or famine. It is either total famine or worst trade in history!!!

Saw Zajak’s response after Goudas laid a dirty hit on Palmerri. Zajak took it to him in a fight pretty good. Impressive team building response.

Devils will probably go on a hot streak now lol.
