Buffalo and the Islanders lost.
But Tampa Bay and Winnipeg won.
And the Canadiens, who play the Sabres Friday night, are in 13th place in the Eastern Conference.
Philadelphia, which has been suggested as a possible destination if Hal Gill is traded, made a move to shore up its defence, acquiring hulking Nicklas Gross man from the Dallas Stars.
And Dominic Moore is on the way to his ninth NHL team. He’s been traded to San Jose, which was thought to be in the market for Travis Moen.
• Price still believes
• Dave Stubbs on Max Pacioretty’s amazing season
• Is Ovechkin a victim of his own fame?
• Will the Hawks trade Patrick Kane?
