Reimer lost the starting job to Jonas Gustavsson in January, but he’s doing everything in his power to take it back. If anyone is as hot as Reimer right now, it’s Edmonton’s Sam Gagner, who had an unreal eight points on Thursday and already has three points through the first period of Saturday’s game. Barring something unforeseen happening, like Gustavsson starting, Reimer and Gagner will put their hot streaks to the test in Monday’s game between the Edmonton Oilers and Toronto Maple Leafs.
Despite tough fight, Stars hand Wild their sixth straight loss
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
