Take That Carolina!

Atlanta scored nine times, and Carolina was shutout, as the Atlanta Thrashers crushed the Carolina Hurricanes, ending Carolina's franchise record nine game winning streak. Savard had four assists, while Hossa and Bondra each had a goal and two assists. Kovalchuk remained hot, scoring twice. Carolina only had 19 shots on goal, while Dunham and Berkhoel split the shutout. Dunham left after the first period because of a soar groin. Early reports say it's not serious.

Jeff O'Neil scored with less than a minute left in OT to give Toronto a 5-4 win over Montreal. McCabe had three points for Toronto, while Koivu, Kovalev and Allison all had two point nights.

Short on time this morning, so here are the rest of yesterday's scores..

Washington 2 New Jersey 3
Buffalo 1 Ottawa 6
Boston 2 New York Islanders 5
Florida 4 Philadelphia 5
New York Rangers 6 Pittsburgh 1
St. Louis 1 Nashville 3
Anaheim 1 Phoenix 2
Colorado 3 Calgary 5
Dallas 3 San Jose 2

Player of the night goes to Jaromir Jagr who scored a hat trick last night, giving him 17 goals for the season. I am the only one who picked him in the Power Play Fantasy League, and it's paying off! Others considered include Marc Savard (4A), Bryan McCabe (1G,2A), Peter Bondra (1G,2A) and Marian Hossa (1G,2A).

Not many rumours out today so far. Doug Weight is being shopped and could end up in Columbus. Jason Allison and Nik Antropov are apparently two forwards being shopped by Toronto in hopes of getting a defenseman in return. St.Louis is apparently interested in one of the Columbus goalies, while Tampa Bay is looking over their options, as they would really like to improve their defense.

Thats all for now, expect more later tonight
