Other Thoughts

I guess I could have just done a “nightly thoughts” blog tonight, but oh well.

Congrats to Marty Brodeur on breaking the all-time shutouts record with his 104th against the Penguins. I was going to do a blog on what records I think are least likely to be broken, but I just saw TSN had a list. Obviously passing Gretzky’s statistic totals are pretty unfathomable right now, nothing can touch Glenn Hall’s record of 502 consecutive game in goal.

What is with Dallas and empty net mix-ups. In only his second game this season, Ivan Vishnevskiy basically ended the game against the Stars. As the puck came back to him off a draw in the neutral, the puck came off of his stick and slid into the empty Stars’ net.

Vincent Lecavalier is quietly rounding back into form with another two point game tonight. He has 12 points in 11 games in December

So I guess Hitchcock’s threat of “win and you’re in” for the goalies is not working so well. They are losing 5-2 tonight with Mathieu Garon in net. Your turn Steve Mason. By the way, Columbus is 3-11-5 since Nikita Filatov left. Again, he had almost zero impact while he was there; I think it is just working out as a coincidence that they have been horrible since he left. Wouldn’t it be awesome if the team turned on Hitchcock because of his treatment of a potential star?

Speaking of struggling goalies, Devan Dubnyk is getting rocked in his first NHL game. It is currenly 6-2 St. Louis.
