Don't look back, something might be gaining.... 

That Satchel Paige was a smart guy. While the Sens are right on the Leafs' tail - still 1 point back after both clubs won tonight - they also can't slip and lose sight of the Bruins and Canadiens who are themselves in pursuit. Both teams won tonight, with the Bruins staying 2 points behind the Sens, with the Habs following 2 points behind them. It should be a great race to the finish with little margin for error.


Off-wing Opinion points to a series of articles on ESPN.com debating the pros and cons of fighting in hockey. The series is well balanced and contains some interesting quotes from players (including cameo Sen Rob Ray).


It's hockey season, and I love hockey, but I'm really a baseball freak at heart. To that end, it's 78 days, 18 hours and 10 minutes until the Lynx kick off their season. Slightly more encouraging is the fact that pitchers and catchers report to camp in 22 days, 1 hour, 5 minutes and 5 seconds (as of this writing).
