This is my favorite time of the morning. Dumping time.
The Top Line
Los Angeles 1, Vancouver 0 – You guys, I don't think we realize it (because they aren't ever on TV) but I think the best hockey in the league is being played in the Pacific Time Zone.
Columbus 3, Tampa Bay 2 – This was the Lightning's 2nd loss when leading after 2 periods, but I guess there is no stopping Hilary Duff's BJs.
Calgary 2, Carolina 0 – Karri Ramo had his first shutout of his career against Paul Maurice's old team.
Winnipeg 5, Phoenix 1 – Yes, Paul Maurice is today's big winner.

There is nothing about this statement that is inaccurate, I suppose. Goalies good, all else bad.
