TRADE DEADLINE DAY! TRAAAAAAAAAAADE DEADLIIIIIIIIIIIINE
The Top Line
As noted, it's the trade deadline. The big move of the day appears to be Marty St. Louis being moved to New York. ESPN, NBC, Sports Illustrated, The Sporting News, TSN, The Local Take #1, The Local Take #2
Boston 4, Florida 1 – Tim Thomas swas shipped to Dallas after getting to see his Bruins one more time.
New Jersey 4, Detroit 3 – The Devils can win when there isn't a trophy on the line.
Columbus 4, Dallas 2 – Artem Anisimov scored twice for the Blue Jackets, and the Stars grabbed a goalie almost immediately.
Pittsburgh 3, Nashville 1 – But Pekka Rinne returned, which is big news in Nashville.
New York Islanders 3, Winnipeg 2 (OT) – The Isles did this without Thomas Vanek, who was held out of the lineup (and was traded within the past hour)
Colorado 4, Chicago 2 – The Blackhawks prefer playing outdoors
Phoenix 1, Vancouver 0 – Viva Eddie Lack
Edmonton 3, Ottawa 2 – Ales Hemsky went out with a bang. He was dealt to Ottawa today.
Carolina 3, San Jose 2 (OT) – The Hurricanes win! The Hurricanes win! It's a miracle!
