Good morning, let the games begin!
Well, the women’s ice hockey started already for the Olympics.
Looks like Scott Hartnell is on a consistent roll with 7 points in last 6 games.
If you haven’t noticed, Winnipeg is trying to move back into playoff contention with their play lately.
Mark Scheifele had 2 goals and could be in store for a nice breakout next season if some personnel are moved.
Kevin Shattenkirk hasn’t scored a point in last 6 games. He’s still playing top PP minutes so I’m not concerned.
Boston pasted the Ottawa Senators yesterday, 7-2. OUCH! I guess they didn’t miss Chara.
The good news out of that game was that Bobby Ryan, (remember him?), scored a goal.
David Krejci and Jarome Iginla have had dome two weeks, huh? Iginla, 14 points in 8 games. Krejci, 11 in those same 8 games.
Luongo was cruising to a 1-0 shutout of the Maple Leafs when the heavens opened up and the Leafs scored 3 unanswered goals in the third period to win 3-1.
Montreal lost Pacioretty when he got pushed into the goalpost. That woke the Habs up I think. Desharnais scored two goals. DD might be a good after-Olympic pickup.
Even though Jimmy Howard lost against Tampa, he did play really well and kept them in the game but the Red Wings couldn’t get anything going in the third period against Ben Bishop.
This Tyson Barrie is on fire. 9 points in last 8 games.
Cory Schneider is, and deserves to be, the New Jersey Devils number 1 goaltender. They will make the playoffs with him as their number 1.
Even though he lost against Washington last night 3-0, he was in net for only one goal against, and he was screened on that shot. Schneider has a 1.85 GAA. Fantastic number.
Enjoy the Olympics! See you after the break!
