"If Al plays the way he has the last couple of games, I like our chances."

Boy, winning puts people in a happy mood.

You know what else does? A night where The Franchise John Tavares scores four points, while Ryan Strome returns to juniors after two weeks away from competitive hockey and scores a hat trick. That's after Brock Nelson's big weekend at North Dakota, Anders Lee's resumption at Notre Dame, and Kirill Petrov's 6-3-9 in 12 GP in the KHL. Coast to coast, continent to continent, people see reasons to dream.

Yeah, well, that's like, the future, man. These links are about last night:
