Detroit opened the offensive floodgates on Vancouver.
Instead of wasting your time watching people sing bad songs about movies, you should have been watching hockey. Read on to find out how Detroit put up an ocho against Vancouver, whether the Blackhawks extended their point streak, and everything else you missed while watching Seth MacFarlane make bad jokes.
All The NHL Scores
Get caught up on last night's NHL scores with recaps from our network of SB Nation team blogs. Here's a quick glance at the full night of action:
Prior to last night's games, we presented five burning questions regarding the night's action. Here are your cool, soothing answers.
1. How will the Penguins respond without Evgeni Malkin?
Sidney Crosby kept the offense flowing for Pittsburgh without his fellow superstar, scoring two goals and adding an assist to lead the Penguins to a 5-3 victory over the Lightning.
2. Oh look, has Viktor Fasth still not lost a game?
He didn't lose Sunday night ... but he didn't play, either. Jonas Hiller got the start against the Avalanche for the Ducks, meaning Viktor Fasth starts Monday night against ... Jonathan Quick. Drivers (and Danica), start your punning!
3. Did Columbus even have a prayer of stopping the Blackhawks?
The injury-depleted Blue Jackets deserve credit for keeping it close with the Blackhawks. Columbus actually ended up out-shooting Chicago in the game, but a shutout from Corey Crawford gave Chicago a 1-0 victory and extended their unbeaten-in-regulation record to 18 games.
4. Can Detroit fully pull out the slump?
Wow! Yes they can! The Red Wings started off slow, and were trailing early, but came roaring back and beat Vancouver 8-3.
5. Are the New Jersey Devils falling into a slump?
It sure looks like it. After losing 5-1 to the Capitals on Saturday they dropped their Sunday game against Winnipeg by a score of 4-2. Martin Brodeur was supposed to start in goal, but left in warmups with a sore back. The Devils need him healthy if they are going to turn things around.
What moment from last night's games will be making headlines in the coming days?
Stat of the Night
Boston's victory on Sunday improved their record to 11-2-2, their best start since the 1976-77 season.
