Why last night rocked:

  • Pittsburgh over Winnipeg, 4-1; in the grand scheme, this was big

Why last night jonesed:

Bottom three in SE all inched forward in Eastern standings...

  • New Jersey over Washington, 4-3 (SO); Caps pot 3 in third (none from anyone named Alex or Nik) to steal a point
  • Toronto over the Islanders, 5-3; Leafs prep for Cats with stirring victory against 28-point Isles
  • Rangers over Philadelphia, 4-2; Winter Classic "warmup". Snooze.
  • Carolina over Ottawa, 2-1 (OT); another free point given up
  • Colorado over Tampa Bay, 2-1 (OT); see above

Why tonight is a Big Deal:

  • 24 hours of leg lamps and beheaded glazed duck kicking off at 8 p.m.

Next up for the Cats:

  • Tuesday at home vs Toronto; LBC Game Thread shall serve no fries before their time...which happens to be 7

Did you know:

  • In a span of under three hours in Boston, the "Panthers" saw their goal-differential fall from +4 to -4. Rounding out the top five spots in the East: Bruins (1st): +56, Rangers (2nd): +27, Flyers (4th): +19, Pittsburgh (5th): +23.

A very merry Christmas and happy Hanukkah everyone...please be safe and enjoy the food, family and good times!
