The above slugfest aside, Steve Valiquette recorded his 2nd consecutive cleansheet over Philly, as the Rangers beat the Flyers, 2-0 early today (video link swiped from The 700 Level). Nigel Dawes and Scott Gomez each scored power play goals for New York, who kept pace with the Atlantic Division’s first place Penguins (4-2 winners today over the Kings behind another pair of goals for Evgeni Malkin).

Not only did Covered In Oil‘s Matt W. correctly predict the Giants would win Super Bowl XLII by 3 points (not bad for a Saints fan), but CinO.’s early scrutiny of new Edmonton owner Darryl Katz is equally impressive.
