Beyond the playoffs, this game, not just for the butt fumble, but for how quickly this game went from close to over is one of my favorites. My brother's wife is a Jets fan. My mother was at their house for Thanksgiving. We were on the phone mocking my sister-in-law for most of the day.
On the Simmonds to the Sabres, the narrative in Buffalo is that the team is soft and the effort is inconsistent. Only Eichel is seen as playing consistently. I think adding Simmonds, and the Devils paying half his salary, is intended to add grit and effort.
Old friend Noel Acciari is having a run - 12 goals in his last 12 games for 17 goals this season in 41 games. Somehow:
he's scored the 17 goals on only 68 shots
he's got only 3 assists

This thread got me thinking about Coco Crisp whose time in Boston was unremarkable - .271/.330/.390 with an OPS+ of 84. Of course he's probably best remembered for his Matrix-like avoidance of James Shields right hand. Anyone remember what predicated that HBP? Watching the video, Remy says...
Anyone else see that puck go in on the last Columbus threat? Looked like Tuuka made the initial stop, with the right leg extended, then puck ended up getting poked over the line but covered up by the back leg. Am I crazy?
The Leafs do the Game in an hour thing as replays for all their games. They edited out the hit on McAvoy but of course left the Wagner hit.
And, how parhetic was Hainsey’s little show. Someone should pummel him just on principle.
