Re: Preseason Bruins results

My preseason prediction in the East is that the Atlantic finishes with 4 teams with 100 points, and each ahead of every Metro team. The Metro ends with 6 teams in the 90's in points.

Re: Morgan Housel: How To Read Books

Yeah but ….

I agree you need some form of filter, but quite often that filter is in the selection of what you read, and far less whether you 'stick with it' (though certainly sometimes). That filter is often author or subject matter [more]

Quite a few solid candidates this year with ~ 1/3 the season in the books.

Re: Shootout Points

Looking at the box score of a shootout game (Nashville - St. Louis) last night, the only credited goals are those scored during regulation (and OT should that have happened).

Re: Shootout Points

David got an assist on the first Oilers goal, and that extended his point streak.

Ok. Right. I feel better. I should have read more closely (or they could have written more clearly).

Re: Islanders taking a vacation?

Just winning. Only loss in the last 16 games was in OT. Last regulation loss was October 10.
