Terrific win all-around. Offense got several good looks and got the job done when it mattered (what a BEAUTIFUL pass by Kuch to Colton for the game-winner, and the goal itself was pretty good as well), defense was stellar, limited the Stars to just 20 shots, and Vasi was his usual brilliant self. Onto the West Coast.

Hopefully everyone is (and has been) voting for Stamkos as Last Man In for the All-Star game. He deserves it.

He got my vote.

On a separate note
I want you all to vote
When you all want me to devote
Time to dropping my vote
On the midseason prospect assessment.

Tomorrow's game is game 41, so I could do it before the game, after the game, the following day, or anytime before Saturday's game.

Oh no Kuch and Point aren't Allstars any more. Harsh decline. Trade 'em!

Not late, I actually like the start time. My sleep schedule is probably the wonkiest of an east coast Lightning fan, so no problem with me.

Also, what would you be willing to give up to get Klingberg and Pavelski from Dallas?
Raddysh Colton Pavelski anyone?

Nothing.
Rutta > Klingberg

Don't want to lose any of our young guys for Pavelski either.

I'd give Foote/1st for Klingberg. No way to make up the cap for Pavelski to make it worth it.

A lot of back and forth hockey with the good guys winning in the end.

(Warning: Rant incoming)
The Kings are a dirty, garbage team. Lazotte tripped Pointer RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE REF, clear skate-on-skate, no call, then scores (admittedly, Foote did cross-check Lazotte after the fact). Then, seconds later, Danault with a blatant slew-foot of Pointer-AGAIN-and the amazing thing is that it WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN CALLED were it not for Pointer understandably going after Danault (amazingly, Point's been in 3 tilts this year-Hornqvist, Garland, and now Danault), after that the refs called the penalty to pacify Cooper and even out the penalties (if they'd called the penalty in the first place. Point's not in the box). Additionally, Durzi cross-checked Hedman during a scrum in front of the net (at least he got penalized), and Brendan Biting Lemieux tried to get Foote to drop the gloves with under a minute to go in the game (Foote turned away and skated up ice, wisely and thankfully). Unbelievable.
On to the actual game, the refs and dirty plays aside. The Lightning carved up the Kings' defense (or lack thereof), which was absolutely abysmal (just look at Bellemare, Hedman's 2nd, and Joseph's goals-WIDE OPEN, with practically all of the defenders on one side of the ice!). Offense was terrific, taking advantage of the chances the Kings served them up on a silver platter repeatedly. Hedman had an absolute whale of a game, with 32+ minutes of ice time and 2 beautiful goals-perfectly placed bullets of wristers-plus an assist on Kuch's PP goal, Joseph was terrific (what a pass to Bellemare, who then deked Peterson into the rafters), as was McDonagh (BEAUTIFUL pass to a WIDE-OPEN Joseph). Vasi didn't have his best game, but at least 2 of the goals weren't his fault (brutal turnover by Sergachev right in front of the net plus the trip of Pointer). Oh, and the fact that they won with only 4-repeat, FOUR D-MEN?! Incredible. Given the circumstances, heck of a job. On to Anaheim.

NHL has officially announced the dates for 98 postponed games, including 95 between Feb. 7-22. Additionally, 23 more games have been rescheduled to accommodate the postponed games taking their places.
Lightning had 2 games postponed in December, at the Avalanche and at the Coyotes. Those games will now be played back-to-back Feb.10 and 11, respectively. Also postponed was at the Devils in January, now scheduled for Feb. 15.

Smith claimed off of waivers. Thought he was gonna play a little this year, but he hasn't. Missing depth, nothing else. Guess Somppi moves up in the depth chart
