4 for Marleau tonight!

 

Very Glendale-esque crowd in Colorado tonight(or it seemed with the high number of Shark fans), with the crowd throwing several hats on the ice.

Denver's been a hospitality house for damn near everyone because the Avs have been run out of a broom closet for ten years and no one is actually from Denver anymore. It's Ski Diego.

Ducks always have a good showing in Denver as well. Just from my anecdotal (Facebook) and experience, there's quite the pipeline from OC to CO. Fort Collins, Colorado Springs, Boulder etc.

Surprised Marleau hadn't had a four-goal game before.  Congrats Patty!! In addition to Marleau's "Top Hat"(That's what I'm calling it! :)) , Burns scored his 20th goal of the season tonight.  He had a total of 27 goals last season.

Glad it was Marleau and not Thornton.

Yeah, I think Boulder gets the neo-hippies and Springs gets the young Christians.

 

Denver's mix of Californians and Chicagoans seems like it would get interesting. Driving in snow must be a treat.

Springs gets a lot of those, and military retirees, but their chrunchy granola hippie crowd seems to be on the rise. I visit regularly, since I know a lot of people, in the area, and I feel like I constantly am seeing more and more of them.

Fifth Harmony is playing at the All-Star Game, which is funny, because a major pastime of NHL fans is denying that any player's contract is worth it.

It's perfect, though, because the most popular member already left the group for a solo career. The NHL booked And The Pips.

 

By the way, we're about three months through the season, and there is precisely one team in the Eastern Conference "under .500". The loser point drives me slightly more up the wall every day.

So, had to work so I've yet  to watch the Sharks-Jets game. Will watch it later tonight on DVR.  However for those that have not seen the latest "Sharks For Life" commercial, here it be:

As of right now, only four teams in the whole league (and none in the East) are under Bettman .500.

 

The whole Eastern Conference is no more than four points from the playoffs.

Yeah, these bye weeks have messed with the standings a tad hard to look at times.

 

Like Boston is one point behind Toronto and three behind Ottawa for the 2nd/3rd Atlantic spots. Toronto and Ottawa both have five games in hand on Boston. Minnesota is only two points ahead of Chicago, but has three games in hand. Not that it matters, but Colorado has six games in hand on St. Louis

 

Another thing I find interesting is the goal differentials. Only 6 teams in the West and 7 teams in the East have positive goal differentials. The positive GDs in the East are all huge too, except for Ottawa's +5. The West's are all fairly tame except for Minnesota's +47, but hey that Boudreau effect.

Cam Atkinson is replacing Malkin on the Metro all star team. Probably would've been on the team already were we doing a straight East vs West format. 

 

I'm not going to dig it up, but I'm pretty sure years ago I said on here that he'd be an All-Star. Kid can play. Not bad for anyone, really not bad for a sixth round pick. Nice job, Scott Howson.

It's amazing to me that, for how sh•t the Devils have played this first half, that they're still in the playoff hunt. Thats... nuts.

 

I do wish the NHL, if they are gonna keep the shootout, go to the 3-point system.

 

3 points for a regulation win

2 points for an OT/SO win

1 point for an OT/SO loss

0 points for a regulation loss

The Oilers.... are..... not terrible at hockey

 

This past game and the Flames beatdown have really driven this home for me. This isn't just McDavid and Talbot, Draisaitl and Maroon have been great (granted, playing with McDavid), Nuge is having a good season, Zack Kassian isn't terrible for once (that goal last night, WOW), and the defence lead by Adam Larson have been impressive even through injuries. I don't expect a long run but a playoff series at Rogers Place will be fun.
