Last night, all games were played indoors — Where they BELONG
The Top Line
Boston 3, Nashville 2 (OT) – Brad Marchand ended this battle for the ages with his overtime winner.
New York Islanders 3, Chicago 2 (OT) – That's it. I'm calling it. Islanders in the playoffs.
Carolina 4, Washington 3 (OT) – Thanks to Jeff Skinner, and only Jeff Skinner, the Hurricanes topped the Caps in Washington.
Ottawa 4, Winnipeg 3 – The real surprise is that the game didn't go into overtime. Bobby Ryan was lackadaisical.
St. Louis 5, Los Angeles 0 – Oh my. The Blues are actually going to have people thinking they can make a deep post season run before they fall apart this year.
Minnesota 4, Buffalo – And Mike Yeo lives to coach another day.
Montreal 6, Dallas 4 – Boy, this was a lot of goals.
Colorado 2, Philadelphia 1 – The way this season began, I'm surprised at how similar the Avs and Flyers records are.
Columbus 2, Phoenix 0 – All right.
San Jose 5, Edmonton 1 – Hey, I just realized Patrick Marleau is still a thing.

There is so much going on, I forgot about National Skating Month. Thank you, Nashville Predators!
