I heard Razar call it the DCC line. It should be the CDC line that prevents problems.

Man Dickinson gets his ass kicked even more than Robidas used to.

Yeah, even Don Cherry would tell him the old "take a hit to make a play" isn't meant to be an every shift aspiration.

Dickinson would be worshiped as a god if he played in Boston or Toronto.

Another win that came from nowhere with the dose of luck requested for that (if McKinnon's block on Lindell's first attempt had gone in the other direction, that would have translated to a probably fatal breakaway on the other side)

Six points over eight on this road trip, mission accomplished.

That was a nice win; great to get 2 points out of it.

This team isn't flashy by any means, but at least they are finding ways to win these games rather than lose them like they have in previous years. Second place in the Western conference, but also just four points up (with a game in hand) on the wild card spots. In contrast, second place in the East is ten points up.

We are now securely ahead of 9th place by a whopping four points.

A true Chess game here. We need to drop a few points to hold the first WC spot and seek the Pacific winner in the first round, but still not too much because we have to secure a play-off spot

It's amazing how often that philosophy of making the playoffs against the easiest possible team backfires, though.

Still need to see more from Benn and Seguin. Very pleased with our depth though. i'd rather see a lower scoring first line with a better distribution of goals.

I’d rather have Draisaitl as well as depth scoring.

I think Edmonton will trade him to L.A. shortly.

I feel like it's been more than 8 games no?

That Hanzal's so hurt right now.
