The only daily feature that promises its author is wearing pants.

The Top Line

Phil Kessel scored thrice in what is known colloquially in Canada as a "hat trick", as the Maple Leafs topped the Ducks. ESPN, CBC, NHL, The Local Take



Toronto 4, Anaheim 2 – The Leafs were even down 2-0 in this hockey affair as late as the 2nd period. 

Vancouver 5, New York Islanders 4 (OT) – Brad Richardson scoring the game winner. I wonder how often he gets confused with Brad Richards. Maybe it actually is Brad Richards' son?!

Columbus 4, New Jersey 1  – The Devils, quietly, suck.

Chicago 3, Florida 2 (SO) – The Blackhawks have proven adept at blowing leads so far this year.ASAS

Minnesota 2, Nashville 0 – The Wild win! They are really bad at actually scoring this season.

Washington 5, Winnipeg 4 (SO) – The Caps go from our nation's capital to Canada only to get into a shootout. N ot very diplomatic. ASAS

Phoenix 4, Calgary 2 – Playoff fever is sweepong glendale. Or that could just be the heat.

Tweet of the Moment


The important takeaway here is that Labatt sponsors the Blue Jackets. Thats fun.
