Happy Festivus, everyone!

“I lost my train of thought.”
1) I know that Brandon Dubinsky has been really up and down, mostly down, and that he hasn’t been able to stay with the second line for more than a few shifts here and there, and that even with that very Dubinsky-like goal, John Tortorella noted that he made one of those gasp-inducing plays afterward.

2) After the goal, somebody cracked that Dubinsky can only play on a line with Stu Bickel and Martin Biron (who had the assists). I think it might have been a Festivus Miracle! How about Biron at 7-1? Great guy, great teammate. Good for him.
3) Stu Bickel. Assists in each of his first two NHL games,
