  1. The homer in me says boston... The feeling in me is also boston, only because they are having an insane season as far as win/loss, and stats, and seem to be driven by the loss in game # 7 last year... Would not have mattered who came out of the west.... That said, it irks me to have such a solid season lost, even if it were to be started again, and or jumped right into playoff action, the mojo could be gone...

  3. Rask...end of story, got his 50th SO on his 33rd birthday. The flyers peppered him in the first 2 periods, if not for tuukka, this would have been a flyer blow out.. I, of course, am happy with the result.
  4. Bruins snap Flyers' 9-game win streak behind Rask shutout Game # 69 2 0 By Associated Press Updated: 15 hours ago PHILADELPHIA -- Scott Laughton sped down the boards, attacked the zone and had his pass set on Kevin Hayes to find an open look at Boston's net. Bruins center Charlie Coyle acted more like a Red Sox player headed toward a triple, doing a head-first dive between the circles, his left arm outstretched with a stick that just broke up the pass and kept a game between two of the top teams in the East scoreless. Coyle had the save of the game. Tuukka Rask took care of the rest, stopping all 36 shots he faced to help the Bruins beat Philadelphia 2-0 on Tuesday night to snap the Flyers' nine-game winning streak. "Hayes was kind of cocked and ready there," Coyle said. "I think that's all I had, so I just went for it and the play went in my favor." So much has gone in the Bruins' favor this season, and they cooled the hottest team in the NHL. Matt Grzelcyk and Patrice Bergeron scored and the Bruins (44-14-12) became the first team with 100 points this season. Rask picked up his 50th career shutout on his 33rd birthday and became the sixth active goalie with at least 50 shutouts. He has five this season. "I've been around for many years. I guess if you play enough games, those milestones happen," Rask said. Rask stymied a Flyers' offense that had scored at least three goals in each of their nine wins during the streak. They scored five goals four times since the streak started Feb. 18 against Columbus. The Wells Fargo Center was about packed, even with concern over the coronavirus outbreak, for the most anticipated Flyers game of the season. If fans were fearful, they sure didn't show it before the game. They packed the concourse bars, lined up for $13 turkey hoagies, and accepted their giveaway Flyers caps (from rubber gloved arena workers, of course) without the gloom and doom atmosphere over the virus that has spoiled sports around the globe. The Flyers were appreciative 19,689 fans turned out on a day on which other sporting events were canceled or postponed. "I don't think we really care about the coronavirus," goalie Carter Hart said. "Some other people do." The Flyers had been sensational as they shot up the standings and were fighting with Washington for first place in the Metropolitan Division. The Flyers had defeated the Bruins in a shootout in both games of the series this season, including a bizarre ending in January when Boston's Brad Marchand overskated the puck at center ice on a shootout attempt. Gritty poked fun at the misstep before Tuesday's game by holding a photo of an oversized red arrow pointing down at an encircled puck as Marchand looked behind him. The frivolity didn't last for long, and the Flyers pounded Rask, taking 24 shots over the first two periods. Rask stood tall in net and got the cushion he needed late when Bergeron's shot from the circle appeared to get deflected by a Flyers stick and went in for a 2-0 lead. "Couldn't get anything past him," Flyers coach Alain Vigneault said. "That goal that they got on their power play at the end of the second period seemed like it gave them confidence and momentum because in the third period they were the better team." The Bruins broke through on Hart, the first goalie in NHL history under 22 with two, seven-game win streaks, late in the second. Grzelcyk buried one from the point on the power play for his fourth goal of the year and a 1-0 lead with 1:21 left in the second. At that point, the Flyers had outshot the Bruins 21-13. Also at that point, it didn't matter much to Boston. Boston took the lead only moments after center Coyle dove across the ice and broke up a pass to Hayes just in front Rask that kept the game scoreless. The Flyers had won at least nine straight games for the seventh time in franchise history. "We knew the streak they were on and they are really good at home, so we had to be big in the third and luckily Tuks made good saves all night and we just tried to keep the puck moving," Grzelcyk said.
  5. Patrick Elias....i always wanted to punch him in the face... It's just his face.

  7. Theodore scores winner, Golden Knights beat Oilers 3-2 in OT Game # 71 3 2 OT By Associated Press 8 hours ago EDMONTON, Alberta -- Shea Theodore scored 2:13 into overtime and the Vegas Golden Knights increased their slim Pacific Division lead by beating the second-place Edmonton Oilers 3-2 on Monday night. Theodore picked the top corner off a feed from Jonathan Marchessault, who scored the tying goal with eight minutes left in the third period. "It was a gutsy effort, three in four nights, playing last night and then back-to-back," Vegas coach Peter DeBoer said. "I thought our guys showed up and really did a good job, every guy out there that dressed, goalie on out. "It was a big win for us, especially a big team win." Nicolas Roy also scored for the Golden Knights (39-24-8), who improved to 11-2-0 in their past 13 games. They are three points up on Edmonton for the division lead. "It's huge. We're getting down to crunch time here and everyone is jockeying for positions and playoffs and the standings," Vegas defenseman Alec Martinez said. "We knew this was going to be a big trip for us, and obviously we weren't too happy with the start of it, but between last night and tonight we're happy to get the win." Alex Chiasson and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had the goals for the Oilers (37-24-9), who played without captain Connor McDavid due to an illness. Vegas finished with a 48-24 advantage in shots on goal. "We are just playing a real disconnected game," Edmonton coach Dave Tippett said. "We are just not playing very well as a group right now. I thought we had addressed some things this morning, but our execution is so poor in a lot of different situations. "We can't continue to play like that and feel like we are a good team." Edmonton got the scoring started nine minutes in as Chiasson tipped Oscar Klefbom's shot past goalie Marc-Andre Fleury for his 11th of the season and third in four games. Vegas drew even with a power-play goal with three minutes remaining in the opening period. Nate Schmidt's point shot was deflected by Roy before it clipped off Edmonton goalie Mikko Koskinen's glove and in. The Golden Knights outshot the Oilers 15-3 in the first period. There was no scoring in the second -- the best chance being a crossbar hit by Vegas forward Nick Cousins -- and the shots were at 30-14 after 40 minutes. The Oilers regained the lead seven minutes into the third when Kailer Yamamoto battled hard to send the puck in front, allowing Nugent-Hopkins to score his 22nd. Marchessault tied the game with his 22nd goal and first at even strength in 18 games.

  10. Theodore's scores late, Golden Knights beat Flames 5-3 Game # 70 3 5 By Associated Press Updated: 16 hours ago CALGARY, Alberta -- Shea Theodore scored the tiebreaking goal with 1:10 remaining and the Vegas Golden Knights beat the Calgary Flames 5-3 Sunday night. On the go-ahead goal, Theodore's shot deflected off Calgary's Andrew Mangiapane's stick and past Rittich into the top corner for his 12th. The Flames tied the score earlier in the third period after trailing 3-0 in the second. "That was big," Theodore said. "When a team ties it up late, if anything you don't want to give anybody in the division points. It was a lucky play, but it was a big play. Sometimes you just throw it to the net and good things happen." Nick Holden had a goal and an assist for the Golden Knights, who regained top spot in the Pacific Division over idle Edmonton. Tomas Nosek, Max Pacioretty and Jonathan Marchessault also scored for Vegas. "Points are so tight this time of year, especially with a back-to-back here and then Edmonton (Monday) night," Theodore said. "I think getting some confidence from tonight and building off that is going to be key going down the stretch." Making his third start for Vegas since being acquired from Chicago at the trade deadline, Robin Lehner made 19 saves to improve to 3-0-0 with his new team. "I'm still adjusting a little bit," said Lehner, who improved to 3-0 with his new team. "It was a big two points and we've got to keep building. We battled hard and didn't give them too many chances. They got a break (on the tying goal) and made a pretty good play. It was big, but I thought we played to our structure and battled hard." Marchessault capped the scoring with an empty-netter with 18 seconds left for his 21st. Milan Lucic had a goal and an assist for the Flames, who had won three straight. Dillon Dube and Matthew Tkachuk also scored for Calgary. David Rittich had 27 saves to fall to 0-6-1 in his last seven home starts. "Up until the last few minutes of the game, we did exactly what we needed to do," Lucic said. "It's just a tough tip off our own stick right underneath the bar. I mean, he shoots that 100 times, I guarantee you it's not going in 99 out of 100, so it's just a tough one after working ourselves back into the game after being down 3-0." Trailing 3-0, Lucic got the Flames on the scoreboard as he snapped a shot through Lehner's legs at 8:23 of the second period. It was his eighth. Dube pulled Calgary within one 8:09 later as he beat Lehner over his blocker on the power play for his sixth. Tkachuk tied it with 3 minutes remaining in regulation when he took a pass from Mangiapane before lifting a backhand shot past Lehner. "We battled back from their lead and I think did some good things tonight, so we've got to build on that," Dube said. "There's no time to dwell at this time of the year with how tight it is." Nosek opened the scoring at 5:24 of the first period when he deposited a rebound past Rittich, who stopped the initial shot by Ryan Reaves but couldn't get back into position in his net to deny the follow-up attempt. Vegas then went up 2-0 at 11:49 when Holden took a pass from Nick Cousins and snapped a quick shot past Rittich. Calgary appeared to pull within one with a little more than four minutes to go in the opening period when Mikael Backlund swatted a rebound past Lehner, but the goal was disallowed after replays showed Backlund interfered with the goalie before scoring. "After we had that disallowed interference goal, we stared to get on the forecheck, started to get on the body and started winning more puck battles and I felt that's what we weren't doing in the first 15 minutes of the game," Lucic said. Pacioretty put the Golden Knights up 3-0 with a power-play goal at 3:39 of the second when he one-timed a pass from William Karlsson past Rittich.

  14. Cirelli, Sergachev help Lightning beat Bruins 5-3 Game # 68 3 5 By Associated Press Updated: 10 hours ago BOSTON -- The Tampa Bay Lightning took the lead with two short-handed goals on the same power play and then held off the Boston Bruins. Anthony Cirelli and Mikhail Sergachev scored short-handed goals just 1:02 apart in the first period and the Lightning beat the Bruins 5-3 on Saturday night. Cedric Paquette and Alex Killorn also scored for the Lightning, who took a 3-0 lead. Nikita Kucherov added an emtpy-net goal with 1:02 remaining as Tampa Bay ended Boston's four-game winning streak. "It was an entertaining, gutsy game by both teams and we came out on top," Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. Andrei Vasilevskiy made 35 saves to help the Lightning get even for a 2-1 loss at home to the Bruins four days earlier. The physical rematch left both teams a little bloody and looking forward to possibly meeting again in the playoffs. By the time it was over, the Lightning and Bruins combined for 36 penalties and 96 penalty minutes in their second meeting in four days. "I think both of us feel we're the best in the Atlantic (Division). We went there and got the two points in their building and they wanted to respond," Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said. "They were more ready to go off the puck drop than we were and that ended up being the difference in the game." Boston still leads the Eastern Conference with 98 points, eight points ahead of the Lightning. David Pastrnak scored his 48th goal for the Bruins, who had won four straight but couldn't rally back from their early deficit. Charlie McAvoy had a goal and an assist and Sean Kuraly also scored for Boston. Tuukka Rask stopped 20 shots. "That was a great game. A lot of physicality and good plays at both ends of the ice," Rask said. "Obviously, it feels better when you come (out) as a winner, but I thought that was a great way to show our character -- always stick up for each other and just fell short." Boston pulled to 3-2 on goals by McAvoy and Kuraly in the second period, which was held up twice when all five skaters for both clubs locked up after the whistle. The second time started with Zdeno Chara and Pat Maroon tangling near center ice and their teammates followed with 1:06 left. The stoppage gave officials a chance to review what was initially called no goal when Tampa Bay's Brayden Point swept the puck from the goal line, but the replay showed the puck made it all the way over the line and the Bruins had pulled to 3-2. Kuraly was credited with the goal and McAvoy got an assist. Another scrum followed the horn at the end of the second period and led to more penalties. Cirelli's goal 5:08 into the first put the Lightning up 1-0 just 7 seconds after Tampa Bay forward Barclay Goodrow went off for elbowing. The Lightning scored again -- on the same power-play -- 1:02 later after a turnover by the Bruins just outside their zone and Yanni Gourde set up Serbachev for a one-timer from the slot. Paquette put Tampa Bay up 3-0 early in the second period with his seventh of the season. ROUND ONE Boston's Chris Wagner and Goodrow served two-minute penalties in the first period for unsportsmanlike conduct after being separated before either could throw a punch. The penalties only delayed the bout as both came out of the box and immediately threw down their gloves. Goodrow, aquired by the Lightning in a trade with San Jose last month at the deadline, said he's enjoyed his first two games in the Atlantic Division rivalry. "Once you play in it, you realize it right away -- there's no dipping your foot in the water. You're in it and it's fun. These are the games you love to play in," Goodrow said. REMATCH Maroon, who played for St. Louis last season when the Blues beat the Bruins in seven games in the Stanley Cup Final, said winning in Boston is never easy. He said he took on Chara when Boston's 6-foot-9 captain went after Sergchev following a hit from behind. "The look on his face, I kind of got nervous there," Maroon said. "I was just trying to do my job. I'm here to protect my teammates any way I can and stick up for them."
  15. Matthew Tkachuk sets up Flames in 3-2 victory over Coyotes Game # 69 3 2 By Associated Press Updated: 13 hours ago CALGARY, Alberta -- Johnny Gaudreau, T.J. Brodie and Mikael Backlund scored, Matthew Tkachuk assisted on all of the goals and the Calgary Flames beat the Arizona Coyotes 3-2 on Friday night. The Flames are 6-3-1 in their last 10. They moved within three points of Pacific Division-leading Vegas and a point behind second-place Edmonton. "We've got to be comfortable in these types of games," Tkachuk said. "This is a playoff-type game, four-pointer. This is what it's going to be coming down the stretch. Happy with our effort, especially in the third." Cam Talbot made 32 saves to win in his 300th NHL start. "It felt like a playoff atmosphere," Talbot said. "You can tell that every little play mattered and guys were going to the wall tonight." Taylor Hall had a goal and an assist and Carl Soderberg also scored for Arizona. "We lose games by one," Hall said. "We're right there. We have to find a way to produce something 6-on-5." Soderberg pulled Arizona within a goal at 10:57 of the second period. The Swede dove on a loose puck trickling between Talbot's pads and shoveled it over the goal line. Backlund made it 3-1 at 4:17 on a give-and-go with Andrew Mangiapane. Backlund swept the puck from the high slot into the net's corner on Darcy Kuemper's stick side. Up 3-2, Calgary held Arizona to just five shots in the third period although the Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz whiffed on a golden chance to tie the game. He got the puck behind Talbot, but missed the open net with just over three minutes left in regulation. Talbot then lost his helmet in a collision with Coyotes forward Conor Garland while trying to poke check the puck away from him. "Just a tough bounce off the boards. Of course, it kicks off the net and goes straight onto his stick," Talbot said. "Pure desperation. I feel fine now. The win helps, obviously." The Flames are at home Sunday against the Golden Knights, who lost 4-0 to the Winnipeg Jets on Friday. "Sunday's going to be the biggest one of the year by far," Tkachuk said, "so we're looking forward to it."
