Nashville Predators 2, Los Angeles Kings 1: Back on Top - On the Forecheck
Did you go kayaking last night instead of watching the Nashville Predators defeat the Los Angeles Kings? If so, give the DVR a rest and check out Hayley's recap instead.

TRADES, RUMORS, AND MORE!

Senators scratch Stone, Duchene as trade deadline mysteries continue – ProHockeyTalk
Ryan Dzingel, Matt Duchene, and Mark Stone were ALL scratched from last night's game! What does it all MEAN? Surely, they're all just resting up for a big contract extension signing party, right?

Insider Trading: Impact of Sens’ trio sitting vs. Devils - TSN.ca
Another look (and interesting insight) into the Ottawa Senators decisions to sit the trio of Duchene, Stone, and Dzingel. Other potential trades are discussed as well.

Trade: Capitals bank on Hagelin having more left in the tank – ProHockeyTalk
Carl Hagelin, who has a very punchable face, was traded to the Washington Capitals for a couple of picks. Of course that also meant he didn't play for the Los Angeles Kings last night.

Should Bruins add more at trade deadline after Coyle? – ProHockeyTalk
Bruins GM Don Sweeney said the Bruins might be done...I guess that all depends on what's available. Who else should they add at the trade deadline to increase their chances at hoisting Lord Stanley's Cup?

NHL Trade Rumour Live Blog: Could Winnipeg make a push for Panarin? - Sportsnet.ca
Like trade rumors? Of course you do! This LIVE trade rumor blog updates any time there's even a whisper of a trade. You may want to put this in your favorites tab for the next few days!

Capitals' Hagelin trade comes at Smith-Pelly’s expense - Sportsnet.ca
Devante Smith-Pelly made it all the way through waivers and wound up in the AHL. I really feel like he would have been a better choice than Cody McLeod. Of course, the stat types haven't figured out how to measure an intangible like Smiles/60, so it looks like the Nashville Predators are stuck with him.

Keeping Skinner through deadline will be a gamble for the Sabres — but it's a risk worth taking - TheHockeyNews
If you were running the show in Buffalo, what would you do with Jeff Skinner? I think he'd be great in Nashville, but I know his price tag will be too high.

Silfverberg’s extension with Ducks is a head-scratcher for more than one reason - TheHockeyNews
LOL @ Anaheim Ducks. (Now watch Jakob Silfverberg catch fire)
