And I'll note with some measure of glee that the Flyers stopped that streak.

2 losses in a row for the Pens going down 4-1 to the Rangers. Everyone wants Bylsma fired

Caps now on 7 game slide losing 2-1 it OT last night to Ducks. Watched Caps/Pens 24/7 afterward, big difference in attitude between the 2 clubs which is why one was on such a hot streak and the other was on the current streak.

Highly recommend watching the series but hide the kiddies as a lot of f bombs are thrown.

Whoo, 3 in a row for Carolina on the road against STL (SO win), Florida (Come-from-behind win), and ATL (SO and Come-from-behind win).

You can't blame Bylsma. The Pens are pretty weak except for Sid and Fleury.

Wings fan here! I have to mea culpa, I have not been paying attention to hockey and the Wings much yet this season. I plan to change that.

My biggest concerns - are they healthy? And hows the goal tending?
From the below link re the Wings - Yea Baby! GO WINGS!

Nick has the knack -- One reason the Red Wings are first in the West is the blue-line brilliance of Nicklas Lidstrom, who's playing well enough to engender thoughts of winning a seventh Norris Trophy.

Through the first 1,441 regular-season games of a career that's sure to land him in the Hall of Fame, he had 241 goals, well over 1,000 points and four Stanley Cup rings. But there was one thing Lidstrom never had done -- score three times in one game.

The 40-year-old scratched that off his to-do list Wednesday, scoring three times in the Wings' 5-2 victory against St. Louis. He set a couple of records in the process. He easily surpassed 36-year-old Scott Mellanby as the oldest first-time hat trick scorer in NHL history. He also became the oldest defenseman in League history to get a hat trick, easily surpassing 37-year-old Mathieu Schneider who accomplished the feat in October 2006.

Lidstrom joins a pretty elite group as the third 40-something to score a hat trick. Gordie Howe did it three times with Detroit and Boston's Johnny Bucyk had two. Howe's last NHL hat trick came when he was 41 -- Mr. Hockey remains the oldest player to score three times in an NHL game.

More excerpts

Every night is a play off game in the Western Conference - quite tight, only 14 points btw the Red Wings in the lead and Edmonton at the bottom.

Eastern Conference is apparently a wimpier place

Last season, 100 points was only good for seventh in the West, and the eighth-place Colorado Avalanche had 95. The 11th-place Anaheim Ducks (89 points) would have made the playoffs in the East. Only five teams in the West are on target to hit the century mark this season -- but 10 are on track for 92 or more points, meaning the scramble for playoff berths is only just beginning.

In contrast, the East has a four-point gap between eighth-place Boston (36) and ninth-place Carolina (32), and the Hurricanes are the only team outside the top eight in the East that has more wins than regulation losses. Four teams in the East are on track to reach the 100-point mark, the same number as last season,

Thumbs up Caps end 8 game slide

After looking at another 2-0 first period deficit, the Caps came out in the second and scored 2 goals in 46 seconds then scored on the PP to beat the Sens 3-2.

Woohoo, this is a good thing leading up to Caps-Pens Thursday night.

Eric Staal had a natural hat trick in last night's 4-2 over Anaheim while Cam Ward had another 40+ save performance. Canes still hanging around the playoff picture. Off to Tampa tomorrow night. Stamkos vs Skinner will be a good matchup for years to come.

Hope you all got a chance to watch part 2 of Caps/Pens 24/7 last night. I don't think I've ever heard so many f-bombs out of one person as much as Boudreau

Anyway, part 1 of the real deal tonight at Verizon Center over at NHL Network. Hopefully will live up to the hype
