Sunday's Dump & Chase: It's Break Time!

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The Olympic break is finally here. It's unfortunate that we're heading in on a loss, but the Ducks are a FAR SUPERIOR team, so that's how the cookie crumbles. Our playoff chances remain very slim, but a 4 point gap isn't impossible to overcome. Several games against the teams ahead of us, trades to be made (?!?), and the return of Pekka Rinne…lots of stuff to look forward to.
