In honor of making it halfway through this week, here are five things that I love about today.
1. James Neal’s career-high 28th goal, and there are still 28 games left to play. (Bonus: Awkwardly close-up post-game interview video.)
2. Steven Stamkos has scored against every NHL team [video]. And he got a League-leading 35th goal on his birthday, even if the Bolts lost.
3. Letang jumped PK Subban in defense of Geno during last night’s extra-frames shootout loss. The video’s bad, but skip to the 1:00 mark for the tackle.
4. The Caps are #1 in the Southeast Division. Gator and I had an excellent time watching the beat Florida 4-0.
5. I’d love it if the Blackhawks could win a road game, especially since they’re on a 9-game trip. Since that hasn’t happened, any suggestions for something you love about today?Tags: Chicago Blackhawks, james neal, Kris Letang, Pittsburgh Penguins, pk subban, steven stamkos, tampa bay lightning, washington capitals
