Bonehead Squared: It was one thing for Rangers superstar Jaromir Jagr to get caught using an illegal stick once against Atlanta, but twice? He was booted from the shootout after the second one. Does he really need to cheat?
Bombs Away: The Predators were outshot, 117-60, in their first three games after the Olympic break. Take away one period against Vancouver, and Nashville was outgunned, 111-38. And still the Preds pulled out three points.
Flameout: Calgary goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff recorded his franchise-record eighth shutout last week, remarkable under the new rules. The Flames are challenging Ottawa for fewest goals allowed, but they're with Columbus and Chicago for fewest scored.
