Your daily shot of hockey to go with your coffee

Rich Peverley is out of the hospital after his scary collapse on the bench Monday night. He was with his teammates at the Stars’ practice facilities today and will soon go to Cleveland to fix his irregular heartbeat that caused his cardiac event Monday. Wishing all the best for you Rich!
LAST NIGHT’S SCORES:
Very Quick Hits Today. Here are yesterday’s picks in case you missed them. Asterisk indicates who I picked:
Bruins* drop Canadiens 4-1: SIX straight for the Bruins and they did last night by ousting their rival. Milan Lucic hit the 20-goal mark last night, the third Bruin to do so.
Avalanche* down Blackhawks 3-2: Colorado finishes up their season series with Chicago winning 4-1, outscoring them 17-14. The Avs move past the Blackhawks for 2nd place in the Central and sit four points behind St. Louis for first. Patrick Roy for Coach of the Year. Seymon Varlamov wins his 100th career win.
Flames blast Ducks* 7-2: Mikael Backlund had two goals and an assist as Jonas Hiller let up three goals on five shots before being pulled 11 minutes into the game. Anaheim has lost four straight and now the door is open for San Jose who is currently only two points out of first.
2-2 last night. 86-70 on the season now.
HIGHLIGHT OF THE NIGHT:
Patrick Kane: America
Seven games tonight, three to watch out for are: Coyotes @ Bruins at 7 (NHL Network), Sharks @ Blue Jackets at 7, Maple Leafs @ Kings at 10:30. Bruins over Coyotes: Make it seven-straight for Boston. Phoenix needs the win but is awful on the road. Sharks over Blue Jackets: San Jose is suspect on the road but is 7-3 in their last ten games. CBJ’s defense just isn’t good enough to handle the Sharks. Kings over Leafs: LA’s quiet eight-straight will extend to nine games. They have the speed to match Toronto and Jonathan Quick is on fire right now.
