I acknowledged the GF/GP in my last paragraph, but that wasn't what you said. Picky? I guess, but ...

I'm not sure where you got those stats, but NHL website has Habs ninth in goals for and 14th in goal diff, neither of which is in bottom third. They are, however, bottom third in goals per game.

No apropos of anything, but that's an interesting expression: separating the wheat from the chaff. It should really be the other way around, though -- you have the wheat and chaff, and you want to get rid of the chaff so that you have only wheat left.

Any Hab that took two or more draws. Galchenyuk, unfortunately, lost the only one he took.

Wikipedia says he did it twice -- Oct. 11, 1953 and March 21, 1954. And maybe it should be renamed the Brendan Shanahan hat trick -- he apparently did it 17 times

Doubt it. TB's ROW total is quite a bit better than Mtl's, since we have won so many games in shootout.

Except that he didn't get a penalty, according to the game summary. If he went to the room, it was for another reason -- possibly since there were only 30 seconds left.

Commercials wouldn't work in soccer because it is a game with running time, so there are no easily predictable times to throw in ads -- Kicks, throw-ins, etc. can be taken either fast or slow. Hockey has stop time, lots of it, so lots of spots for commercials.

Is the "facebook circle" some weird special interest group? ;-)

Loved DD's shootout goal. Puck seemed to be barely moving when it slid under Holtby's pad.
