Great Night For Hockey!

What a crazy night last night was in the NHL. Lets start in Toronto, where Ottawa crushed the Leafs, 8-0. Heatley scored four goals, and Hasek got the shutout. Berg missed this game with a minor injury, which makes you wonder how important Berg is to the Leafs. Nah, I'm sure if Berg was in, nothing would have been different.

The Devils beat the Bruins 5-4 in a shootout. Kozlov and Mogilny led the way for the Devils, each scoring three points. Clemmensen got the win in net, replacing an injured Brodeur.

The Rangers beat the Habs 5-2 last night. Rucinsky had two points for the Rangers, while Koivu and Zednick had a pair of points each for the Habs. Theodore was pulled after three goals and replaced by Danis, who didn't fair too much better.

Kotalik, Briere and Hecht all had two point nights, as the Sabres beat the Islanders 6-4. Yashin and Satan each had two points for the Isles. DiPietro started this game, but was replaced by Snow in the third period.

Tampa slipped by Atlanta last night, winning 3-2. Richards and Modin each had two points for the Bolts, while Savard and Kozlov had the Atlanta goals.

The Hurricanes came back from a 3-1 deficit to beat the Penguins 5-3. Staal led the way for Carolina with four assists. Stillman and Whitney had three point nights, as Carolina improves to 8-2-1 on the season. Gerber gets the win for the Canes, while Caron picks up another loss for the Penguins.

Edmonton won their second straight, as they smoked the red-hot Preds 5-1. Hemsky had a goal and three assists for the Oilers, while Smyth picked up two points. Pronger picked up his fourth assist of the season, and Oilers' fans are really hoping he starts to produce sooner than later.

Minnesota charged past Columbus 3-1. Todd White had two goals, while Kuba picked up two assists. Fernandez got the win for the Wild, who only faced 16 shots.

Detroit doubled up Chicago 4-2. Zetterberg and Samuellson each scored their seventh goals of the season, and Osgood picked up the win for Detroit.

Colorado beat Vancouver 4-3 in Overtime thanks to Laperriere's fourth goal of the season. Cloutier was once again pulled and replaced by Auld! Cloutier could find himself loosing his job soon.

Other scores to tell you about : Dallas beat Phoenix 5-3, LA beat St.Louis 5-2 and San Jose beat Calgary in OT 3-2.

Player of the night? I want to say Heatley, but Staal led the Canes to a win with four assists, so the Hockey Leaks Player Of The Night Is...ERIC STAAL!
