Hoping for a better effort against the Kings on Thursday. A win, too.

"It was a moment where they play yesterday and we come out and we want to get on top of them a little bit and catch them a little tired," Pavelski said. "We were able to get the lead early."
"They played a lot in Anaheim last night so we wanted to wear them down," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. "We felt that we could go at them with two lines, both Cooch and Jumbo’s. It didn’t really matter."
"It seemed like there was one puck and they had it," Carlyle said. "We didn’t get a chance to play with it."http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/pavelski-scores-two-as-sharks-take-it-to-leafs/

MotM: Gardiner (two goals)
Hm: Raymond (two assists)
Good effort(s) by Reimer (for keeping his tired team from being further blow n out) with 42 saves.

I enjoyed the Olympic coverage where they had sportsnet, cbc and tsn all contributing. Oh well.
Nothing wrong with that. It made for a nice collaboration.

One of the possible rule changes coming out of the GM meetings is to change the rules when a player gets thrown out of the faceoff circle. If a guy gets thrown out, instead of kicking him off the draw, he has to line up a foot further back from the circle to give the other team an advantage.
What a terrible rule. The refs already take their sweet time and draw 80% of the faceoffs on with their hesitations on the puck drop. So now because they can't be bothered to drop the puck, teams are going to be punished. I don't understand why the officials decided to start pull that stuff on faceoffs.
Laughable rule should it become official,

NYRangers netminder Lundqvist sets milestone with win #300. A grateful Lundqvist thanked the home fans with this tweet:Henrik Lundqvist @Lundqvist30
Thank you guys for all the love and support! To reach 300 wins today was very special. let's keep it going..
"King Henrik" can now look forward to two more records in a Rangers uniform -- he needs just one more win to tie former Rangers goaltender & Stanley Cup winner Mike Richter's record of wins, and, he needs another win to tie former Rangers netminder Ed Giacomin's franchise record of 49 shutouts.
Good luck #30!

He probably should have known his goaltending was bad going into this season.
I know a few Isles fans were happy with some aspects with the Vanek trade, but were also questioning why it even took place when they had much more pressing needs, such as needing to upgrade the defense and goaltending.
But I'll admit I liked the idea of the trade when it came out. In theory it made sense because, worst case scenario, they could just as easily trade Vanek again at the deadline to re-coup most of their losses. But that blew up in their faces.
The Islanders have yet to upgrade their netminding after all these years. Sure they had DiPietro but we also know how that turned out.
By upgrade, I allude to some of the goaltenders in their system, the up and comers. Even if they have them, in fact some are backing up Nabokov (such as Kevin Poulin & Anders Nillson), goalkeeping is still not an Islander strongpoint.
Here is a chart showing all the Islanders netminder from past to present along with statistics:http://www.hockey-reference.com/teams/NYI/goalies.html

St Louis just admited that the olympic snub was part of the reason he wanted out of tampa bay. I lost alot of respect for this guy.
Call it the "chip on his shoulder", so to speak. Quite possibly, he made that his raison d'ętre for wanting out. If he hadn't been snubbed, would it have made it any easier for him to leave Tampa?
St.Louis:I always felt if I was going to leave Tampa, the first place I'd want to play would be in New York," St. Louis said. "It's been in the back of my mind for a long time, but I wouldn't trade those 14 years in Tampa for anything."
