    So, in the spirit of the #18wheeler, ideal scenario today:

    - Leafs lose in regulation to the Blues
    - Caps beat the Kings in regulation/OT
    - Columbus beats Detroit in OT

    Leafs will be sitting 10th if that plays out.

    Habs stopped the B's win streak last night in a pretty rough affair... that would make for a nice playoff matchup for sure.

    When your owner only cares about "cost per point" a country club is what you get.

    You're not in the winning business, you're in the enterainment business.

    And Budaj is 5-0 in Boston. There are no guaranteed losses in this league.

    Except the Habs won't have any healthy bodies left.

    This matters not. Malkin will be back in time for the playoffs, and now more rested for it. Pittsburgh is used to dealing with the absence of Crysby or Malkin.

    What were the penalties handed out in the Boychuck/PK exchange? Funny how Pacioeretty stood there and did nothing as the Habs "star" defenseman was being threatened.

    Boychuk got 2-min, PK nothing.

    So, for PK, mission accomplished.

    PK baited him huge, twice. One day someone's gonna punch the poop outta PK, and it'll be great.

    Lotta noise being made about Ladd missing a game for the birth of his daughter... Jets lost the game...

    Always a polarizing decision. I can't blame him, I'd have done the same thing. Family first Wing Dang Doodle.

    There's nothing polarizing about it. You go be with your family, and that's that. To suggest anything else is ridiculous.

    To suggest anything else means you don't have kids.
