    Fansided: Buffalo Sabres Carry Winning Momentum Into Pittsburgh

    No Buffalo Sabres fans, you are not dreaming. The Buffalo Sabres are in fact one of the top teams in the league, and are currently on a five game winning streak. Doesn't it feel like it has been long overdue? I sure think so. Tonight, this team looks to continue that momentum as they attempt to take down the Penguins.

    The possibility of a sixth straight win will not be something that comes easily. The Penguins may sit with a record of 7-8-3, but they still have a lot of talent to surge them towards a win.

    Star forward Sidney Crosby is still out day-to-day with an injury, but the Penguins also have an elite top center in Evgeni Malkin.

    Pension Plan Puppets: Preview: the Blue Jackets come to test the mettle of the Maple Leafs

    The Columbus Blue Jackets are coming to town, and I confess that I know nothing about this team. We'll have to go on a voyage of discovery together.

    They currently sit at the top of the Metropolitan Division, which is what most good predictions models had them at this season. The fact that the two New York teams who are supposed to be duking it out for last are two and three is testimony to how snarled up the Metro is this season. And how weirdly the Penguins and the Capitals are playing.

    Columbus is fourth in the league, right behind Toronto, with 26 points to the Leafs' 28.

    Lighthouse Hockey: Stars 6, Islanders 2: That wasn't very fun at all

    It was a lazy Sunday for me, and it apparently was for the Islanders, as well. Their game with the Stars was a brutal one over the final 40 minutes and was over before the halfway point of the third.

    Things started off promising for the Isles. They took a 1-0 lead before the first commercial break. Anthony Beauvillier, fresh off a hat trick against the Rangers, continued that torrid pace with another goal, giving him 5 on the year. He put away a rebound off Leo Komarov's rush toward the net.

    LA Times: Another heartbreaker for Ducks as they lose to Avalanche in final seconds of overtime

    Pontus Aberg trudged over to the penalty box after he was called for slashing Nathan MacKinnon. There were just 14.7 seconds remaining in overtime, but that was all the vaunted Colorado Avalanche power play needed.

    With 1.3 seconds left, NHL-points leader Mikko Rantanen ripped a one-timer past Ryan Miller to lead the Avalanche to a 4-3 victory over the Ducks before 16,502 at Honda Center.

    The Ducks performed well against a high-powered offense once again, but the effort wasn't enough. Nothing has been enough for this squad that has just three wins in its last 15 outings.

    Fansided: New York Islanders Are Doing No Favors For Michael Dal Colle

    Today was the first time Michael Dal Colle played for the New York Islanders in nearly a calendar year. The former fifth overall pick from the 2014 draft class got off to a slow start in his professional career.

    In his first full season in the AHL, he had 41 points in 75 games (15 goals, 26 assists) which is perfectly mediocre numbers for a top-five pick. He followed that up with just 24 points last year (7 goals, 17 assists) in atrocious fashion.

    This year, was different. Dal Colle came flying out of the gate with 14 points (7 goals, 7 assists) in 14 games.
