4 straight wins, first win in MSG since 1990, first team to sweep NYR, NYI and NJ in the same road trip. Potvin, Storr are on fire and Palffy scored (very good sign). Have only lost 2 out of their last 16 games and have killed 74 of their last 76 penalty kills (18 game span). PK, 1st in the league. PP, 3rd in the league.
Up Next: Kings Vs Boston
Jason Allison is back in Boston in a Kings uniform and Jozef Stumpel and Glen Murray meet their old team.
After getting romped by Boston 5 to 0 the Kings bounced back to beat San Jose. They started their homestand right where their road trip ended, with a win and they've overtaken the Flames for the 8th playoff spot in the West.
PK...#1 in the league (an amazing streak) PP...#3 That's an index of 4, best in the league.
Maybe I just haven't followed the NHL as a whole closely enough this season, but this sure seems to me like a completely uneven trade, Pavel Brendl and Bruno St. Jacques for Ryan Bast and Sami Kapanen.
