IIIiteracy: 25 March 2013

A recap of tonight’s Conference III action with help from the geniuses at SportsYapper:

Wild 7, Dallas 4: Zach Parise didn’t get a hat trick but he did have two goals and an assist in this weirdo game with high levels of Conference III-ness. The Stars had too many turnovers FYI.

Kings 5, Blackhawks 4: The defending champs got three in the third past Corey Crawford to secure the comeback at the United Center. Goalie controversy in Chicago? Are they just missing Hossa? Is it lack of puck control? One thing’s for sure: the ‘Hawks still win at the yapper with the busiest yapper in all the yapp.

Nashville 3, Edmonton 2: Redemption, thy name is Sergei. In his first game against Edmonton since his doofus line change, Sergei Kostitsyn opened the scoring for the Preds and had one nasty assist. And this Oilers’ fan forgot the Predators have made the playoffs like a zillion-minus ones times in the past zillion years (estimated) and thus, ya know, aren’t the worst team in the whole world.
