In NHL, East not least

Dec 25, 2006 6:08 AM

It’s amazing to see the NHL Eastern Conference, where only Philadelphia and Florida has losing records.

The Flyers are 1-8-1 in their last 10 games, including a dreadful 3-11-4 at home. How many more people can they fire?

The West is more the standard for failure, with seven teams at .500 or below.

Wednesday

Canadiens at Caps: One word, Ovechkin. CAPITALS.

Thursday

Flyers at Lightning: Flyers can’t stop Lecavalier. ’NING.

Friday

Ducks at Hurricanes: The defending Cup champs rise up against NHL’s best. CANES.

Saturday

Senators at Maple Leafs: Another Ontario war. SENS.

Avalanche at Blues: New coaching change has injected some life to St. Louis. BLUES.
