They played a pretty darned good 3rd I say.

Other than the wobbly 3rd, which I think has something to do with score effects, that was one of the better games they've played all year. Ronnie's had a horrible year so I mean maybe we shouldn't read too much into it but still.

Sandy gave the game ball to Muzz. Getting back our best defensive D-man is yuge, especially with Rielly out. Love watching Sandy walk that blueline. 17-7-3 under Keefe. Dallas is next!

It feels like Tavares isnít really having a great year.   Heís still on a 34 goal pace and just below PPG pace.

Ray mentioned that he's on his career average scoring pace, but that his year seemed "quieter."  To judge by our MotM voting, he's right.

Pekka Ronnie.  Not to be confused with Ronnie Peca, Michael's brother.

In his defence John's probably exhausted from carrying* Nylander all season**.

Babies man.  I'm surprised the human race made it this far.  First Alex Screen and now John Tavares.

It's not so much his scoring pace, but he's been a liability defensively and takes plenty of shifts off.

There's also the fact that he's getting paid $11 million and doesn't really seem like he's that level of player.

Edit: The AAV of his salary is in the top 5 in the league, which is a little nuts.
