PA Parenteau 20 goals in 77 games
Auston Matthews 20 goals in 36 games

What a difference a year makes

Happy, but still kind of annoyed.

Totally agree. Still a lot of work with this team.

What a crazy game. That game winner was deftly done.

It was the prettiest at times, it was the absolute ugliest at others. But that about sums up this young team so far this season. Either way it's definitely exciting and promising.

Matthews is rather skilled.

Sure, but he's no Laine. ;D

If ever they sort out the defence, which I think they will with a combination of experience and one more big piece, they'll be in a very good place.

20 goals for Matthews already. What was Kessel's highest?
I Saw Jay McClement Score.

Hrudey's right. I'd love to get an official explanation as to why that wasn't goaltender interference.

Kadri was on the bench and he's a diver?

I'm not going to get on the "The NHL hates its most valuable franchise" bus but I do think there's a general lack of consistency with that call.

Obviously, I'm just speculating, but I wonder if a big part of the reason why it wasn't interference was because Andersen went down on his own, and put Vanek into a position where he was interfering, rather than the other way around. At least, that's how it appeared to play out to me.

I've watched the winner like 6 times now, and I still haven't seen how it went in.  Nothing like a backhander.  (And does PL have one in his arsenal?)

Gardiner with just a fantastic game too. 2 assists. Was huge on the Brown goal.

Gardiner also with a pretty big lead in CF% today at 67.57.
