E.J. Hradek brings back the Monday 10 -- observations from a weekend of pucks -- with an edition including Carey Price's poor preseason, Ilya Kovalchuk vs. Sean Avery, Marc Savard's return timetable and injury issues for the Islanders and Wild.
While you were focused on Crosby back home in Montreal, the Blackhawks regaining home ice, and the Red Wings possibly getting swept, here's another storyline to focus on: the unbelievable run of the Boston Bruins right now.
Up 2-0 on the Wings now, E.J. Hradek is looking at this Sharks squad differently than previous ones. Could they go all the way? Could they? Dare to dream. Plus: ideas for commercials, injury reports and the glory that is Halak.
It's a heck of a day as E.J. Hradek previews the Thursday games, where the Devils will try to stave off elimination, and hands out his three stars for Wednesday night. Who's No. 1? Could it be ... Satan?
