his time is reserved for Around the Net… your morning skate around the league!
Monday morning is upon us and it really doesn’t feel like we had much of a weekend. That is mainly due to the NHL schedule makers who seem to ramp up their weekend day schedule during the latter stages of the season. The Penguins spent the weekend picking up four big points and moving back into first place in the Atlantic Division…can they hold off the Devils?
That question will be answered over the next two weeks, but it is looking like they just might be able to pull it off. Especially considering that they still have four games left on their current home stand…most of which are against teams that they should be able to beat. We will look more at the Penguins chances of winning the Atlantic over the next few days…

The Tampa Bay Lightning were embarrassed on the ice Saturday night by the Buffalo Sabres. Head coach Rick Tocchet, who is a fairly proud man, was disgusted and that came out Sunday in the form of a brutal practice for his team.
It will take a little longer to determine who actually won the Benoit Pouliot for Guillaume Latendresse swap, but early indications are that the Wild will be laughing to the bank! Here some of Latendresse’s teammates weigh in on the youngster and his 27 goals this season.
