Canadians win after firing assistant coach, Vancouver is the worst (even without Luongo), and the Avalanche melt. CHECK IT OUT!
Philadelphia Flyers 1 @ Montreal Canadians 5 – The Montreal Canadians came into the game in a horrible mood, apparently. Monday night, the ‘Habs lost 2-1 to the Panthers, but tonight they spotted Philly a Jaromir Jagr goal and still proceeded to take out the Flyers. Yannick Weber (can we trust a guy named Yannick?) tied the game up in the final three second of the period with a power play goal. In the second and third Montreal scored two goals apiece in the 5-1 victory. Also scoring goals, in order, were Andrei Kostitsyn, Max Pacioretty (who scored the third and fourth goals), and Michael Cammalleri.
St. Louis Blues 3 @ Vancouver Canucks 0 – So you outshoot your opponent, play the goalie your fans want, and yet you are shutout on home ice. Vancouver is going through their own Stanley Cup hangover. The goals for the Blues: Alexander Steen scored the first two and Patrik Berglung made it 3-0 for good measure.
Colorado Avalanche 2 @ Calgary Flames 4 – Kyle Quincey put Colorado on top with a power play goal, and, while we’re on patting the ‘Lanche on the back, they also outshot Calgary. The Flames, though, scored the next three goals with Roman Horak (his first NHL goal) tying the game up in the first. Lee Stempniak also scored, and Rene Bourque put in a PPG making it 3-1 Calgary. Ryan Wilson got the Avs to 3-2 but Bourque put in an empty netter, preserving a 4-2 win at the Saddledome (two teams enter; one team leaves).
