It is time to hop back into it today with a little Fantasy Hockey ONE. First up, let's take a look back at what happened last night with our FANTASY POTN first and then Ian Gooding will give us his Pick Six for the night.
This one was a very easy choice as we went with Lars Eller of the Montreal Canadiens. Besides the cute spin-o-rama goal, he did score three other times as well. He had four goals and one assist on four shots by the way. While Eller may not be a natural goal scorer, he definitely has the talent to surprise a few people. Eller is more than likely only a 20 or 30 goal scorer in this league but his speed is extremely evident. Last night he put on a show for the home crowd that could happen a bit more often in the future. Give the kid credit. He was flying last night and it was great to see for fantasy owners who have rode it out with him.

Well, after many dismal performances at home, the Bell Centre faithful certainly heard a different tune to start 2012.
See, get the pun? Retired after the 2004-05 lockout, the Canadiens brought back the goal song which animated celebrations at the turn of the millennium.
Clearly, Lars Eller enjoyed the song, as he made it play four times in the evening, capping off his performance...
Lars Eller capped an evening imaginable to very few, and capable by even fewer.
If there’s a team who needs to eat up wins now more than ever — given the coaching controversy — it’s the Montreal Canadiens.
And Eller, a 22-year-old from Denmark, racked up five points — four of them goals.
Under interim coach Randy Cunneyworth, the Habs move to 2-6 — which...
It sure looks like a ***** in this picture, and I wouldn’t put it past a Montreal Canadiens fan to bring such an item to a game in anticipation of one of the Habs netting a hat trick. I just hope that it wasn’t in slightly used condition when it made it’s way to the ice.
Whether or not the red, phallic-shaped item found amongst the hats strewn on the ice following Montreal...
Kicking 2012 Off with a Bang!
So, unless you were hiding under a rock last night, most every Canadiens fan is now well aware of the unreal performance by Lars Eller last night against the Winnipeg Jets.
Not only did he score 4 goals and add an assist, but he actually gave his fans and teammates something to smile about.
While it can be argued whether or not this will go...
After Lars Eller completed his hat trick in Montreal last night the ice was littered with hats in celebration. Unfortunately someone didn’t have one and decided to throw something else.
That’s a freakin *****!
P.S, Reminds me of the time some college kids threw one onto the court of Rose Hill Gym during a Fordham v St Bonnies game back in the 90′s. Wink Wink
Have you ever wondered who would think, "Boy, I'd so much rather be the guy who picks up the dead duck thrown from the stands during a hockey game?" The answer, we imagine, is the guy who has to pick up the rubber phallus thrown on the ice in celebration of a hat trick.
According to Gerard Yee on Twitter, somebody at the Montreal Canadiens' 7-3 home victory over...
The siren had sounded, the cheers lingered, and Lars Eller skated out as first star of the night. He tossed pucks into the stands, but he remained longer than most would, and he applauded the adoring and delighted fans. He smiled and clapped again, and when he finally left the ice, in the corridor he jumped in the air.
Lars Eller had a right to smile and linger and jump. Because...
