UPDATES: JAMES TIME!..

Montreal 0 - Buffalo 3: Buffalo G Ryan Miller is trying to hold up to his word of the Sabres making the playoffs as he blanked the down-trodden Canadiens with 34 saves for the shutout. Trade day acquisition Cody Hodgson potted two goals while Derek Roy pitched in with 2 assists. You may want to have a few Sabres forwards in your lineup as they make a push for the playoffs. Florida 1 - Carolina 3: Another team making a late season push, although a little too late, is the Hurricanes as Eric Staal is working his second-half magic once again with 2 goals in the contest. For Staal that's 4 goals and 3 assists in past 5 games. D Joni Pitkanen returned from his concussion to net his 4th goal on the year. Possible comeback player next year, make note. Cam Ward stopped 30 of 31 SOG for the victory. read more
