A fantasized look at Monday's NHL action

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

This is worth checking out if you missed it: watch Ryan McDonagh score the weirdest goal of his career on a stunned Jonathan Quick. Quick was otherwise half-decent, stopping 25 of 27 actual shots in a 3-1 loss.

Not too many Kings helping you out at all in this one. Drew Doughty notched six PIM, Jake Muzzin scored. Jeff Carter had six shots, two hits, and three blocks. Darryl Sutter made many excellent faces.

The Rangers were the better team overall, with the Rick Nash - Brad Richards - Derek Stepan line really looking great throughout. Richards scored on both his shots, while Nash had a couple of helpers, +2, six shots, and two blocks.

Ryan Callahan was back in this one after shoulder surgery in the off-season. He took an Anze Kopitar stick to the face and left the game for a while before returning. Overall Cally played only 11:16 (0:11 PP) but still managed four hits and two blocks.

Henrik Lundqvist got better as the game went on, and made his best saves after Quick's gaffe. Lundqvist stopped 28 of 29 shots for his first W of the year.

Crazy game in Edmonton. After the Devils went up 3-0, I switched over to the other game and managed to miss four Oilers goals in just under eight minutes in the third.

Eakins was giving out some crazy ice time in what seemed like, and probably was, a bizarre cry for help. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (1G, -2, 6 SOG) played a ridiculous 28:12, Taylor Hall (1G, 4 SOG, 1 block) had 25:44 and David Perron (1G, 1A, 3 SOG, 2 hits) played 25:15. Nuts.

For the Devils, Marek Zidlicky (2A, +1, 2 SOG, 3 hits, 2 blocks) and Damien Brunner (1G, 1A, 3 SOG) were standouts.

Allowing four goals on 25 shots, Jason Labarbera fared no better than Devan Dubnyk has lately, but at least J-La got the W. Martin Brodeur stopped just 23 of 27 in a 5-4 shootout loss.
