If you're waking up slightly hung over like I am, you didn't imagine things; the Pats are still undefeated and the Giants are in the frigging Super Bowl. Ugh.
It was a good weekend for the home teams as the Flyers peeled off two wins, beating the Islanders on Saturday by a score of 5 - 3 and the Senators last nightn by a score of 6 - 1. The Sixers beat the Raptors 99 - 95 on Saturday. Scott Hartnell, who earlier this season couldn't have scored at the Bunny Ranch with Ed Snider's credit card, had another hattrick on Saturday and added another goal for good measure last night.
Last night's Flyers game against the Sens was supposed to be the game where the Sens gave Steve Downie his comeuppance from nailing Dean McAmmond in preseason. Nothing happened to Downie, but Senators tough guy Brian McGrattan, who had a lot to say about Downie when the incident occurred, got tuned up in a fight with Riley Cote.
Unbelievable doozy of a trade rumor emanating from Toronto in an article written by Bruce Garrioch. This article speculates that if Forsberg does not end up with the Flyers, that the Flyers would be willing to deal Jeff Carter and a first round pick for Mats Sundin. Interesting rumor, but I think that asking price is a bit high for a guy who is going to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
