Check out our morning recap, where the Maple Leafs still believe 'CORSI' is a four-letter word.

Essential Water Cooler

It goes without saying that the Los Angeles Kings can play some pretty fearsome two-way hockey, but it's also starting to look like the organization's depth in net is never-ending. Jonathan Quick is a Conn Smythe winner and since he got injured, Ben Scrivens is putting up Vezina numbers, while rookie Martin Jones nearly had three straight shutouts. Toronto put 39 shots on him last night but only put one past the armor, losing 3-1 to the Kings. Is it the team's system, or just a bunch of really talented netminders?

Primetime Play

Sticking with the men behind the masks, check out Anaheim's Jonas Hiller, stoning Charlie Coyle on a breakaway to preserve a 2-1 Ducks win over Minnesota.

Men of the Night

Corey Perry, Anaheim: His tally ended up as the game-winner and also marked the seventh consecutive game Perry has lit the red lamp.

Patrick Kane, Chicago: Many of the Hawks had good nights in a 7-2 hayburning of the Flyers, but Kane's assist prolonged a run that has seen him tally points in seven straight and 19 of the past 20 games.

Jeff Carter, Los Angeles: While Jones was holding down the fort in the defensive end, Carter was putting the wood to Toronto offensively with a goal and an assist.

Better Luck Next Time

Philadelphia goalie Ray Emery has fond memories of Chicago – he even has a Stanley Cup ring from last season's championship run. But those are distant memories for his ex-teammates, who ran him for six goals on 18 shots before 'Razor' got the hook.
