Can someone explain to me why nate got an extra 10 minutes for the Clarkson fight? I think it is automatic with the instigator penalty,but then i don't understand why Clarkson didn't get an instigator penalty when he obviously picked a fight with Prust? The only thing this tells me is that the only fights where they give out 2 fighting majors with no other penalties are staged fights. Am I missing something???

I want to see Max come off the half-wall like Kovy used to do and rip some shots under the crossbar! If he starts doing that, then PK will get some better looks at the net.

Actually his decision to try and pass AFTER his shot was blocked was a worse play. He should have tried to freeze it or dump it behind the net. He left himself caught way up ice as the Oilers broke out. Oh well, he had a bad period... it happens... He's still one of our most valuable players.

On Price taking a therapy day, I kind of wondered at the time, that on Giroux's breakaway in the first period, that Price looked like he hurt something. He shook it off, but I though t he might of pulled a muscle or something.

Its great that DD was named 3rd star... he had a great week. But its pretty obvious that the 3 stars are based solely on statistics, or else Weise would have been the guy. On another subject, is there any NHLer out there that passes as poorly as Gilbert. His passes are never on the tape, and even if he doesn't turn the puck over himself, he causes his teammates to do it with hard to catch passes. Early in the year, I think he was big reason why Beaulieu struggled. with poor passes hanging NB out to dry.

And on another note, I wonder how Mike Richards is enjoying the party scene in Manchester? The Kings sure aren't showing him much respect!

Matt Kalman (twitter in Boston) says "I haven't check the stats, but I can't imagine anyone had a better January than Tuuka Rask." I can think of someone.

I love hockey, but I watch 82 habs games a year plus a handful of other games if I find time. Sorry Rogers, but i'm not interested in the Sens playing Florida or Buffalo no matter how many channels you put it on. Your marketing and research department should all be fired.

Oh, I'll watch it, and it was a neat idea a few years ago, but it's no longer a novelty, and I'd prefer to watch an indoor game.

So this will be the Habs first "Winter Classic", but they have played 2 "Heritage Classics"? When is the "I don't give a *** Classic" or the "Jumped the Shark Classic"? I personally don't want my team playing outdoors when points are so hard to come by in this league. Classic - "judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind." Yeah, right...
