It was a short night in the NHL on Monday with only two games on the schedule. But what the night lacked in quantity of games it made up for in controversial shootout moves.
Read on to catch up on the full night of action.
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:
Bruins 3, Senators 2 (SO)
Kings 3, Flames 1
Prior to last night's games, we presented five burning questions regarding the night's action. Here are your cool, soothing answers.
The Kings outscored Calgary 12-3 in three games, completely dominating the Flames. They got another good performance from Jonathan Quick and just out-grinded Calgary all game long. A typical Kings win.
2. Will Trevor Lewis score the game-winning goal?
3. Is Mike Richards dealing with any injury issues?
He passed the eyeball test. He didn't look like he was laboring at all, even though he only registered one shot on net. But this is a hockey player we're talking about. He could be playing through something right now and it would be hard to tell based on one game.
It didn't start out as one, but it definitely ended that way. Guillaume Latendresse's goal just 55 seconds in sparked a four-goal first half of the game, but the two teams settled down in the second period. Aside from Latendresse's and Daniel Paille's goals, the two teams didn't have many end-to-end rushes. Instead both were forced to play with patience and wait for the other team to make a mistake. Neither did, and it ended in a shootout.
5. How will Guillaume Latendresse fare in his return to the lineup?
What moment from last night's games will be making headlines in the coming days?
Kaspars Daugavins' shootout attempt was either ridiculous or totally fine, depending on who you follow on Twitter.
Stat of the Night
Since the night of the Jeff Carter trade/Dustin Brown trade rumor, #LAKings are 46-17-5 including the playoffs. That's a 117-point pace.— Corey Masisak (@cmasisak22) March 11, 2013
Make that 47-17-15 after Monday's win.

The only thing more disrespectful to the game of hockey than Kaspars Dauvagins' shootout move is the Calgary Flames front office.— The Royal Half (@theroyalhalf) March 11, 2013
