So, extrapolating the points based on the number of games played, if every team had played 25 games at the exact rate of points that they're at now, the Blackhawks are on top, with 36.3636 points, beating out the Sharks at 36. Happy Asci.
What the hell are you talking about?

Yeah, I think Philly plays a Black friday matinee game every season, or something.
Good game, Buffalo won 4-2. Tons of fights, four injuries, including Lapierre from Philly taking a slapshot puck to the face and returning in the 3rd period with 50 stitches, from his nose to his upper lip. He came out in the 3rd period wearing a full cage and played out the rest of the game. His lip was cut completely through, which is an insane injury to come back from. Its pretty crazy how tough these guys are, and they get major props for soldiering that stuff out. You've got Ross who was decked by Colletta by the same hit that Ovechkin laid on him two nights ago and was kicked from the game. You really can't go for a big from behind deliberate hit like that, especially when the whole league is looking at that kinda hit, its just a stupid thing to do.
Sounds like the trademark rough Philly game.
I just checked the scores... Geez, lots of games were early today. Devils won 2-1 in a shootout against Boston. God, I wish I could have seen it. Marty and shootout action. Makes for some good hockey.
Heh, I'll have to look up the recap of that shoot out. Check out the recaps of the Philly game, especially if you can find Carcillo and Rivet (that's the Buffalo player who got hurt bad) going at it. They both got 15 minute majors for two fights, one being premeditated.
Your logic doesn't seem to bear any fruit, according to the NHL standings. Just because you're number one in PROJECTED points, doesn't mean you're actually number 1 in the standings. Chicago is still technically 2nd to San Jose. Projected numbers mean dick all. At the start of the season, Henrik Sedin was on a massive tear. His PROJECTED point total was 161 points. He's clearly not going to reach that, as he is subjected to slumps and whatnot. The same thing applies for other players and other teams.
And you're a moron if you think 3 games means nothing. Where have you been the last 3-4 seasons of hockey? 3 games = 6 potential points. Hell, 1 point can make a huge difference in the standings by the time the regular season winds down. You can brag when your team is OFFICIALLY number 1 in the standings.

Anyone else watching the flyers buffalo game? This is ridiculous.
I am so ****ing pissed I missed this game. I haven't been able to watch the Sabres last five games because I've always worked when they're on, and today I had a Black Friday shift from 3:45 am to 1, so barely twenty minutes after I got home I fell asleep. I remember watching the Flyers score that second goal right before the end of the first period, sighing because I figured we'd get crushed again, and then fell asleep.
