A recap of tonight’s Conference III action with help from the geniuses at SportsYapper:
Pittsburgh 4, Winnipeg 0:Jets fans may have been actually disemboweled, as our friends at Arctic Ice Hockey suggested, which may be why the yap got overtaken by Pens and Wings fans, who did some top-notch trade analysis.
Los Angeles 4, St. Louis 2: The Blues really are in a struggle here, aren’t they? It was a stellar night on the yapper, though, as per usual for our friends from the Show Me State. One guy thought Dustin Brown’s game-winner may have been not real; another has serious problems with Hitch.
Phoenix 7, Nashville 4: These two — known historically as the league’s less, shall we say, offensively-minded teams — combined for nine goals in the first period. The Preds switched goalies twice and, ya know, technically outscored the ‘Yotes 4-2 after Phoenix took a 5-0 first period lead. The game finally raised the question: is Pekka Rinne tired or just a fraud?
Vancouver 4, Colorado 1:Three third period goals opened this one up (two were ENGs, but still). Colorado fans, take comfort this guy thought it was boring.
