Wild are 1 point behind the Caps for best league record, with a game in hand on them. Postseason hopes are going to be at a record high this year.

The Wild are still kicking ass. So much so that their opponents are abusing officials to vent their frustrations.
Vermette slapped his stick against the back of linesman Shandor Alphonso's legs after losing a faceoff to Minnesota Wild captain Mikko Koivu during the third period of the Ducks' 1-0 win Tuesday night.
...
Anaheim Ducks center Antoine Vermette has been suspended 10 games by the NHL for slashing a linesman.

I was totally watching that game. I also saw the world's most bullshit game misconduct call tonight when the Wild dude got nailed for (in order): (i) getting clipped on the skate by Douchebag A from the other team, losing his balance, and (ii) upending Douchebag B from the other team. Then there was the other incident where Douchebag X from the opposing team crosschecks the Wild player and knocks down Douchebag Y, the opposing goaltender. We luckily got offsetting penalties for that one. This is one game after a blatant highsticking call on one of our better players which required stitches that mysteriously didn't warrant more than a minor penalty.

I can't believe that guy only guy 10 games and is actually appealing after it was already reduced from 20.

I have no idea how it was ruled unintentional, as it was clearly intentional.

Dipshit attacks ref.

Now he faces jail time, expulsion, and his hockey career is certainly over.

I thought maybe, but it's specifically NOT the NCAA and it fits hockey more, so...

National Junior College Athletic Association isn't affiliated with the NCAA? Wtf ... after some googling, it appears not.

Nashville just swept Chicago out of the playoffs. That's a #2 wildcard contender not just beating but dominating the top seed in the western conference. Oh, they also couldn't score until 140-something minutes into the series. They got 3. Not in one game, that's the series total.

I think the NHL's playoff match ups are ridiculously stupid. Why did the #2 seed Penguins play the #3 seed Blue Jackets in the first round? I understand the divisional thing, but it's dumb as hell.

Thankfully, the Penguins won. However, do we now get the #1 Caps if they finish off Toronto?

Because the #1 seeds in the divs take on the wildcard winners. The only dudes left are 2 and 3.

Looks like you're getting the Caps. Leafs might pull something out, but Washington is loaded.

I guess his point is that the 3 best teams in the conference were in the same division, and had to get grouped together, instead of across the conference.

Refers to a ticket pricing scheme embraced by certain NHL teams. Prices are determined by opponent rank and division hatred.

Rough that game 1 is against the draft. I'll be doing a lot of "last" button mashing on my remote tonight.
