Wow. Sorry, I know we journalists are supposed to be unbiased, but that was an impressive display of work by Mr. Richards tonight. Could you tell the guy was just ready to play and be done with all the drama of the past week or so? Although it's going to be hard for him to top that from here on out.
Anyway, some other tidbits:
Niklas Hagman looked great. He said he just had his stick on the ice and didn't do much for those, but it was his hard driving to the net that ultimately made those goals. Great stuff. And now he's just one goal away from being among the team's leading scorers. Don't see any reason why, with 14 games remaining, he doesn't get at least 30 now.
Mike Modano still scores some of the prettiest goals I've ever seen.
Loui Eriksson gets his sixth goal in his last four games. The committee is alive and well.
OK, folks, I'm about to call it a night. Have a good one.
