Ottawa and Buffalo Brawl
Other fights from last night:
Let’s do it again
I’m sure Brian McGrattan will be dressed for this one.
I wrote about Saturday’s great divisional games, and this week the unbalanced schedule is basically “working”. It took some time, almost two full seasons, but divisional rivalries have suddenly exploded.
The Rangers-Devils action from earlier in the week led to a title in the NY Daily News you wouldn’t have expected a couple of months ago: Eight not enough for rivals
I’m sure the schedule will still be modified after next season, but if divisional games continue to be heated contests, it’ll only be a slight modification instead of a huge overhaul.
Last howl for Laraque
The word in Pittsburgh via ESPN Radio 1250AM is the Penguins have made a trade with the Phoenix Coyotes for Georges Laraque. Laraque still has to waive his no-trade clause for the deal to be completed. Big Georges was scratched for last night’s game against the Calgary Flames.
The Arizona Republic doesn’t have any done deal reported, but does publish: Laraque could be dealt before deadline. The traded hinted at is with the Pens, something I’ve written a few times in Quick Hits recently. It became apparent by the All-Star break coach Gretzky didn’t feel like he was getting what he expected from BGL.
There’s a delay for the video downloads update. They will be updated within a day or two.
