Happy Veterans Day, y'all. So I hear the Bruins won a wild one over the Oilers last night eh? Awesome.
Tyler Seguin is winning the Taylor vs. Tyler battle. Devan Dubnyk obviously isn't that great of a goalie. Tuukka Rask has won two straight, and the team has won four straight. After 14 games, the team is sitting at an even .500, a point and two games in hand behind the Ottawa Senators. Hey, this season might be salvageable after all..maybe we need to change that 'failing for nail' headline. Doubly so since Columbus is seemingly running away with the Nail honors this year.
After the jump, a trade, an unlikely Gordie Howe hat trick performer, and some other nonsense.
- 6-3 is a good score. Hey, the Bruins have scored 24 goals in 4 games THAT IS AWESOME. [Globe]
- Daniel Paille is apparently feeling better and to be honest I'm excited to see him out there in the Chris Kelly Face Cage. Maybe it'll ignite his offensive game! [ESPN]
- Jordan Caron is finally getting adjusted back to the NHL pace, and looked good as he scored a goal last night. This bodes well for the former first rounder. [Hockey journal]
- Speaking of first rounders, Zach Hamill didn't suck last night, which is a big step forward for THAT former first rounder. [Herald]
- But the first rounder who stole the show last night was Tyler Seguin. He could be the next significant player in Boston Sports history. [Globe]
- Speaking of draft picks, the Hamilton brothers and Ryan Spooner rocked the Russians in a 10-7 Super Series win yesterday. [Hockey's Future]
- Here is the complete ballot for the All Star Game. [NHL]
- The Blues and Blue Jackets swapped defensemen yesterday night, with Nikita Nikitin off to CBJ and Kris Russell coming back to STL. [Puck Daddy]
- The Sharks beat the Wild 3-1 last night. Sorry Corny. [Post]
- Steve Montador....had a Gordie Howe hatty? What? Well, to be fair, it WAS against CBJ. [PHT]
- The NHL has started an original production company a la NFL Films, with the former head of HBO. Should be interesting. [Yahoo]
- Cam Charron defends the Canucks' playing style, and makes some interesting points. [Canucks Army]
- Despite the football team's current....woes, Terry Pegula is still committed to Penn State's hockey program. [PHT]
