Bolts lose to the Caps 5-2 after making 50 shots on goal (most ever at home). Kolzig was really on his game last night, stopping 48 of those shots....

Don't worry, Det, your Red Wings will still make the playoffs.

As for the Penguins, the domination over the division teams is really helping out as they're only 3 points out of first place. The way the Eastern Conference and the Atlantic Division are shaping up, the AD might only see one team in the playoffs.

Huge win over the Isles last night, though. Fleury looked great on his 22nd birthday (as well as bobble head night). Big division game against the Devils on Friday.

I know, but they better get past the first round! This Babcock team sometimes looks like Rachel Welch, and next thing you know, here comes Phylis Diller!

Wow, Datsyuk comes through in OT against a stinking St Louis Blues team.
I just hope Babcock knows what he is doing with this team.

Currently watching the Wings vs the Maple Leafs. I love the rivalry, and the crowd finally seem to as well. They tend to be spoiled and sit on their hands most of the time.

I don't respect the Canadian teams,..they haven't won since 1993 if I am correct.

GO WINGS!

At least all of them are well supported. Other than the Wings, Rangers, and a select few others, U.S. teams have sad fan support.

Oh boy, looks like I have come across another one! Can you support your statement,...it is all I ask? First let's look at attendance if you could?

All of the Canadian teams sell out, or nearly sell out, every game. While there are a fair amount of U.S. teams that do, teams like Tampa Bay, only draw when they're winning. Take a look at the Lightning attendance figures from when they were the laughing stock of the NHL. They definitely were not selling out every game.

Not only that, but team like Buffalo - that sit fairly close to Canada - sellout a lot more because of the Canadians who don't really care for a team, but just like to see hockey. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Buffalo is sold out for every game this season.

My point was that NHL attendance was at an all time high last season.

Talk about close, Detroit is above Canada on the map,..the only major city in the Continental US that can brag that!

Do you think that it's possible that the increased attendance was because of the lockout the season previous?

What I guess I'm trying to say is that I kind of agree with Alex here. I'm a huge Penguins and hockey fan and I remember going to games in February and March last year and seeing maybe 9,000 fans (capacity is over 17,000 - still small in the NHL, but hey we need a new arena!). And we all know how well the Pens were doing last season...Although, I will say that during the 90s they would sellout a good amount of the time, so perhaps the decrease in attendance is from 3-4 years before.

I guess for most NHL teams, if they're doing well - attendance and coverage is high. If not, then the opposite. It's sad, football and baseball seem to dominate the US sporting world.

Those MIGHTY* Ducks are crazy good this year. Not sure who's going to be able to stop them.

In local news: Pens dominate Flyers for 5th time this season. Wow, do I hate the Flyers and love the fact that we're finally beating the **** out of them this year.

*I know the name's gone, but too soon???

Here' we go...

A win tonight could have the Penguins on fire and see them in 6th in the East and 3rd in the division. Wow...right now 4 out of 5 teams in the Atlantic division are seeded for the East. Funny considering many people aren't giving the Atlantic division more than one team in the playoffs this year. Crazy. I'm sure that'll change at some point, though..

You think the playoff race could get any tighter right now. The competition this year is insane.
