Good morning one and all,
Last night was one of the wildest nights of late-regular-season hockey I can remember. Let's recap what went down.
In the process of schooling the Bruins, the timeless, ageless wonder Jaromir Jagr picked up his 1800th NHL point, making him 4th on the list of all-time scoring leaders. Legend. [Sports Illustrated]
After the game, Jagr said: "After 15 years, maybe someone likes me in Pittsburgh today." Video here. [961Kiss]
The Pens are announcing their team awards as the regular season winds down. Player's Player Award went to Marc-Andre Fleury. I'd had him pegged for the "Player's Favorite Doormat" or something. [Penguins.com]
Carey Price set the Habs franchise record with 43 wins in a season by virtue of beating Detroit 4-3 in OT. Give this man all the trophies. [The Score]
The Kings, however, are done. That's it for the defending champs. Not enough depth and poor cap management did them in. Hmm, that sounds familiar. [LA Times]
For the first time since 1996, the city of Winnipeg will see some playoff hockey. They partied at Portage & Main late into the night. [Winnipeg Free Press]
One fun number for the end: Jagr averaged nearly 86 points in his 21 NHL regular seasons. Unreal.
