Washington/Pittsburgh:

  • Odd Fact:  Team that scores first has lost every single game. 
  • Varlamov looked very, very human.
  • Still not sure about Ovechkin’s knee on knee with Gonchar.  Apparently no supplementary disclipline will be forthcoming.

Boston/Carolina:

  • Odd Fact:  Every time Staal scores the Canes have won the game.
  • Boston has lost all 21 series that they trailed 3 games to 1.
  • Staal & Ward were beasts for Carolina tonight.
  • Being a healthy scratch was very helpful for Samsanov tonight.

Ongoing Phoenix Saga Daily Tidbit:

  • Daly: NHL controls Coyotes, 3 local owner options.  Highlight of the interview:

SL: Bottom line, do you think that next season there will be a franchise in Phoenix?

BD: Yes, I do.

SL: What about three years from now?

BD: 
Yes, I do.
