Nick Suzuki has reach the vaunted 35 point milestone, a bar that hasnt been cleared by a Habs rookie since *checks notes* Chris Higgins in 2006.

Christ almighty Habs drafting is woeful.

lol

Also, it's really obvious that the crowd at Bridgestone Arena ain't what it used to be. That's what happens when you're typically garbage at home.

A lot of people are crying foul on the Panarin shootout goal, saying his last motion of the puck made the shot illegal.

Rule states that the puck must be kept in motion towards the opponent's goal line. Replay officials said he did just that and the goal counted.

The last motion was a lateral side to side move at worst, slightly forward at best. No issues there and anybody complaining about that one doesn't have eyes.

The second-to-last motion, however, is pretty obviously a backward move from what I can see.

I was really, really surprised to see that the goal was counted as being legal.

Hell, even the broadcast centered on Panarin on the bench during the review and he very obviously shrugged/sighed and said "Fuck", looking like he was admitting to the fact that it would not count. When even the shooter doesn't believe it was legal, come on.

With the way the Wild collapsed in the 3rd period, they deserved the loss. And at this point, they are not a cup contender and would do nothing in the playoffs so I am actively hoping they lose games, but this was complete BS in my eyes.

Artemi Panarin's 2 points tonight give him 76 on the season. The last Ranger to hit that number was Marian Gaborik in 2011-12.

Right now he's still on pace to hit 111 points, which would be the 2nd most all-time by a Ranger if he can get there, behind only Jaromir Jagr's absolutely silly 2005-6 season.

In regards to Boudreau, the writing was on the wall, but the question is why now? What an awkward time.

Boudreau available?! YES! Thank god the Jets didn’t just extend our mediocre at best head coach for 3 more years!

Hang on I’m being handed a note...

I feel for you, calder. When I saw the news of the firing, first thought was 'That sucks for the Jets, they just re-signed Maurice.'
