It's a great day for hockey!  This afternoon and into tonight, we've got 11 games on the NHL schedule from Pittsburgh all the way to Calgary at 10:00 ET tonight!  The Rangers are in action and have started into a mini-slump.  The Jets have actually taken the southeast division lead.  The Flyers and Pens can both pass the idle Devils who had a rare regulation loss last night.  Tampa Bay is suddenly just 6 points out of the playoffs and the first game of the day features Stamkos vs. Malkin as both are now tied for the NHL's scoring lead.  Ottawa can close to within 1 point of Boston for the division lead with a regulation win IN Beantown.  Phoenix and San Jose are tied for the pacific division lead and both play different opponents today.  The Caps and Leafs play a crucial game that could put one of them back into the playoff picture if the stars align right.  Let's give you the full schedule for today's games...

wow, the Kings showed up

The Pens murder the Bolts in an identical score to the first game after last year's Winter Classic.  Malkin gets the HT, Staal gets 2 goals, Fleury damn near gets another shutout, and the Pens completely dismantle the Lightning by a final of 8-1.

3-0 as Staal picks up #20 with a shortie!

No stick for Roloson and Kunitz cashes in, Pens score the opening goal against the Bolts!
