Not a ton of action on the Eastern front yesterday, but what did take place was significant. Already covered the Penguins' shootout loss to the Isles on Monday afternoon, so on to the Big News of the night for the Cats:
St. Louis defeated the visiting Rangers 2-1 (66P) in regulation, thereby robbing New York of yet another point in the past three. Slats has a serious decision to make in the coming days, but how long does one wait as the team founders? Down goes Renney...
WHO TO WATCH TONIGHT IN THE EAST
- Boston @ Carolina, 7p. The Hurricanes (61P) celebrate Glen Wesley Night in Raleigh. W4E say: Far as I'm concerned the organization retired #2 twenty-something years ago under the guise of Ricky Ley. Otherwise, the Canes are bumping into the Broons at the right time...Boston has lost four straight.
- Buffalo @ Toronto, 7p. Tied with Florida at 64 points (and one additional win), the Sabres head to Toronto for what is always a fest. W4E say: The Leafs have outscored Buffalo 171 to 168 this year. Don't expect Toronto to roll over; Brian Burke appears to have reached his minions.
