New, comments

Winless in past nine vs Jackets, does 'Lumbus qualify as Cats' arch rival yet?

Not so Flash-y: 1 assist in last nine games for Fleischmann.

Last game for Florida: 4-3 regulation victory in Detroit. Henrik Zetterberg logged an assist en route to finishing with 11(!) shots on Roberto Luongo (38 saves) in a Wings' home loss Tuesday. Aaron Ekblad notched his 4th goal of the season while Vincent Trocheck continued his current hot streak with a goal and two assists.

Last game for Columbus: Yeah, about that.

Update: The Panthers have dealt defenseman Colby Robak to the Anaheim Ducks for Jesse Blacker and a future conditional draft pick. Welcome to the fold Jesse!
