I’m rushing out the door, but first:
<li>Henrik Lundqvist will start again tomorrow.
<li>Jaromir Jagr, tongue-in-cheek, on Sean Avery’s opening goal: “That wasn’t the plan. The plan was to pass to me.”
<li>Avery had two goals but declined to speak to the media, continuing his odd behavior of late. He was sharp enough, however, to throw his Second Star puck to two attractive women in the crowd.
I half-expected to see his phone number on the puck as well, but it was just an autograph.
<li>Strange bedfellows, Feb. 16 edition (teams you should be rooting for):
Toronto over Boston; Tampa Bay over Washington; Ottawa over New Jersey.
Philly-Montreal is a wash, and so is Islanders-Atlanta.
