Sid is great of course, but they play different positions. Imagine the numbers if Sid was feeding Ovi! Ovi also should get points for durability. That has to count for something.

Absolutely, i don’t ever recall Ovechkin ever having a concussion, or any other major injury for that matter. Durability goes a long way in the NHL and definitely counts for something, a player isn’t worth a whole lot when he is sitting on the shelf.

You can’t really fault Sid for his original concussion (mind you he was admiring his pass), that hit from David Steckel was dirty in my opinion, and could have been avoided. I wasn’t too pleased when the Leafs signed Steckel, he was a POS in my books. Anyway, it was later revealed that Sid had suffered fractures to two vertebrae in his neck.

Once you receive a concussion, you are considered “damaged goods”, and there is a very good chance that it will rear its ugly head again. Patrik Laine falls under this category now, and this will be something that he will have to deal with for the rest of his career.

The fact that Ovechkin has avoided such injuries is impressive, especially since he doesn’t shy away from the physical game. At the end of the day it comes down to not putting yourself in a vulnerable situation.

You get a goal and you get a goal and you get a goal! Everyone gets a goal!!!

That game was insane, the Caps went over 300 minutes without allowing an even strength goal against, that was before the flood gates opened up last night.

It was a rough night for Ovechkin, he was on the ice for 6 goals against!

I didn't get to watch last night but did DVR it for later. Will check it out today. Sounded entertaining at least and like the Caps stole a point.

With the loss of Morgan Rielly, the Leafs will have to deal with some adversity for the first time this season. They have been relatively injury free all season long, and tonight’s game against the Rangers will be a very good test for the team.

Gardiner moves up to the top pairing with Nikita Zeitsev, and Frankie Corrado makes it into the line-up paired up with Connor Carrick. Knowing Babs, i don’t foresee Corrado getting more than 10 minutes of ice time tonight, he will be sheltered leaving the other pairings with 15 extra minutes of high impact ice time after the loss of Rielly.

Corrado has been barking about his lack of playing time this season with the Leafs, and Babs summed it up perfectly today, “the balls in your court.” Thank god he just came off a conditioning stint with the Marlies, before that, he was a highly paid season ticket holder in the press box.

The last time the Leafs and Rangers met, the Leafs blanketed the Rangers using their speed and relentless forecheck while not allowing the Blueshirts to use their speed to their advantage. I have a feeling that the Rangers will be playing with a little more fortitude tonight seeing that Hank has been a tire fire of late, allowing 16 goals on 76 shots over his last seven periods.

Vigneault said that Lundqvist will get the start tonight seeing that Antti Raanta is still out with an LBI.

Should be a good game.

We beat the Coyotes finally, without Patrick Laine. Go Leafs.
