A LOOK BACK.......
Talk about a crazy, batty night in the NHL last night. If anyone believed that Vancouver and Nashville would combine for 11 goals, I would have thought they were nuts.

This is why sometimes numbers can be thrown out the window with the lock slammed shut.
We decided to do something different today and take a look at the goals scored here.
