Colorado down 1-0 at the end of the third to Detroit. Patrick Roy proceeds to pull Varlamov with MORE THAN THREE minutes left. Helm scores ENG within 30 seconds. Colorado lucky that Detroit disciplined to not risk icing. Only score one more with 15 seconds left, 3-0 Detroit.

Olczyk seems to forget that you can't take your own helmet off in a fight.
 
Borderline hit by Ott on Kruger, Ott gets jumped by Carcillo. Thought Kruger turned towards the boards at the tail end instead of taking it shoulder to shoulder.

Big Buff just destroyed Gazdic in the Jets/Edm game.  240 lbs doesn't spin in the air that often.

In your "that's why they play the games" result of the day, the Flyers went to a shootout with Nashville with 33 year old rookie Rob Zepp in net vs. all-world Pekka Rinne. And they won in 2 rounds. One of the most shocking shootout victories in team history...this one and Boucher beating Lundqvist on the last day of the 2010 season to get the Flyers in the playoffs.
 
Oh and now 4 points behind the Bs. Screw Florida and Bobby Lu, it's Flyers/Bruins down the stretch.

The Penguins want to be part of that race too.

Pittsburgh up 4-0 on Florida midway through the 3rd.

Flyers won, but all in all a good day for the Bruins.

Wooo. Massive bargain for the Islanders to lock Leddy up at that price and term. That kid is a stud, 23 and advanced stats say he has been one of the top defensemen in the league this year. Leddy is an absolute pleasure to watch day to day, he just seems to own the game when he is on the ice. So psyched for the seven years. Fuck yeah!!!!

Kelly Sutherland and Justin St. Pierre are ruining this Pens/Caps game with the ticky-tack calls. It's gonna end up with like 30% of this 2nd period's played at even strength.

Poor Crawford.  Pretty sure that went straight through him.  Glad to see Stamkos healthy, the sport is better with guys like him.

Apparently in the St. Louis vs Vancouver game tonight, Ken Hitchcock pulls Jake Allen after the 2nd period with the score 4-2 Vancouver. 6 minutes into the 3rd, Brian Elliott gives up a goal, skates off the ice, and has words with Hitchcock. Jake Allen back into the game. Then the Blues score 3 and force a shootout which they lose.
