Eight games in and 2 goals and 4 assists, but also a -8.

And now he is on the injured list with an upper body injury. The couple of articles I read indicate it is not real serious, and the Avs are in a stretch of only four games in like 20 days. Perhaps it is the abundance of caution thing.

Channel surfing tonight and hit the NHL Network in time to see that Cale was the number three star of the week for his 3 goals and 2 assists. For the year, he has 5 goals and 8 assists in 12 games.

Makar is on fire. He had a 2 goal game on Friday and has another 2 goal game tonight. On Saturday, Vatrano and Sheary both had 2 goal games. Pretty good stretch for former UMass pucksters.

"Full court" solo rush and goal make ESPN's Top 10. Looked like child's play.

I've said it before and I'll say it again... he's the next Bobby Orr. Just magical out there.

^ It was hard to believe that those were NHL players. It didn't look that easy in Hockey East. Shows you just how good Cale is to make pros look so silly.

Also worth noting, one of the D-men on the goal was Justin Braun... another UMie.
