MTL: Here’s the view from the perspective of the Montreal Canadiens, who didn’t mind losing on Thursday in the long run.
PIT: As if things weren’t a roller coaster already for the Pittsburgh Penguins, they found out hours before their 3-2 loss to the Dallas Stars Thursday that they would be without goalie Tristan Jarry and goalie Casey DeSmith.
PHI: Philadelphia Flyers head coach John Tortorella got his 700th win as his team beat the Minnesota Wild 5-4 in a shootout.
FLA: Twice in the last week, the Florida Panthers have moved into a wild card slot, and twice they lost the next game.
Before the game, the Panthers’ Staal brothers (Marc and Eric Staal) declined to wear Pride jerseys for warmups. The reason? You guessed it! The lame religion excuse! Apparently, God was OK with Eric doing it in Montreal but not here? Still waiting for that press release from heaven.
