Sorry for no Nightcap last night – there was thing involving a power outage. Back to our regularly scheduled hockey!
- Joe Morrow (Bruins) re-assigned.
- Nielsen (Islanders) had a hat trick.
- Preds still top of division, despite falling 3-0 to the Penguins (their first regulation loss of the season).
- Patrice Cormier (Jets) recalled.
What I’m Watching:
Battle of California: San Jose vs Anaheim should make for a good game. San Jose lost to what some consider the worst team in the NHL yesterday, the Buffalo Sabres so they’ll be 1) on the second half of a back-to-back, and 2) looking for redemption. I’m still not quite sure if the Sharks are McTanking or just lost in transition after last year’s booting from the playoffs.
The Capitals in Vancouver might be a pretty decent game as well. Both teams have started getting use to new head coaches and Radim Vrbata seems to have been the missing piece the Sedin twins have been looking for. Put that up against Ovechkin, et al, and should make for some good hockey.
