    This Oilers team is such a headache right now. They lose in a bad way to Buffalo on Friday then put on a strong game last night in Boston. Jekyl and Hyde. They havent won 2 regulation games in a row yet this season.

    I completely understand! As a Sabre's fan, watching them play this season has been painful. It feels like the talent is there, but the team can't put a whole game together, or can't do it more than once.

    Hey you've got the best shot you're ever likely to have at the Pens this week :lol: Second and third string goaltenders and likely no Malkin...

    I hope the Pens show up and win... but that first game did go to OT and nothing surprises me with this Pens team this season.

    Stars making history last night. Vegas got shutout for the first time ever, a hat trick was scored on Vegas ice for the first time ever, and Faksa completed his natural hat trick fastest in the last 30 years, 8 seconds between his 2nd and 3rd goal. Dallas played like trash the first half of the game, but Bishop looked like himself and kept everything out. Second half was all Dallas.

    Any time Dallas beats Chicago, especially in their own arena, is a good time :donnie::sharpie:

    Edmonton is trending upwards. Looks like McDavid is over whatever illness made him lose 15 lbs (that he played through) and is in top 5 in scoring this morning. Lots of conference games coming up that will make or break this season.

    The Caps have managed to get their shit together for the most part.

    I was closer than the 2-1 loss looks... Vegas had two posts and I was expecting them to manage an empty net goal but Letang stopped the one that was headed in :lol:

    :rofl:

    Yeah they seem to be playing well, which is cool given the terror Ovi is on.

    What a play by Hudon on the boards to set up the OT winner... Despite being pinned to the boards, he manages to reach his stick around the opposing player and single-handedly shovels a pass by the two other incoming defenders:
