We are mere moments from the weekend. You almost made it!
The Top Line
Carolina 5, Buffalo 3 – When Carolina gets to experience bad weather, in supercharges them, because they feel like the Hurricanes must be the most dominant weather phenomenon.
St. Louis 2, New York 1 – The Blues beat the Blue Shirts on a game winner from Kevin Shattenkirk.
Columbus 5, Philadelphia 2 – The Blue Jackets don't need Rick Nash OR Marian Gaborik!
Pittsburgh 6, New York Islanders 4 – I am just looking forward to the conference final between the Isles and Jackets, but Pittsburgh is trying to get in the way. I hate Pittsburgh.
Tampa Bay 4, Ottawa 3 (SO) – 10 games last night, and this one was the only one that needed extra time. ASAS.
Dallas 7, Toronto 1 – Dallas just embarrassed Toronto all the way around last night.
Minnesota 2, Chicago 1 – I tell you this much, you won't see many 7 goal performances in Minnesota Wild games.
Nashville 2, Vancouver 1 – All because Michael Del Zotto is now in the fold in Nashville.
Anaheim 2, Los Angeles 1 – Two hockey teams in California? Next you're going to tell me they play outside!
San Jose 1, Winnipeg 0 – The Sharks are 5th in the league in goals against. Goals scored, too, but on this night, goals against seemed more pertinent.

Apparently Olli Maatta led a leftist revolution in Finland before coming to America?
