from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,
• Wonder if Ron Wilson knows that only one coach in NHL history has missed the playoffs four years in a row and not been fired because of it. In fact, almost no coaches have missed three years in a row and survived the way Wilson has. The only four-year survivor is Barry Trotz, who missed the playoffs five years in a row and remains the Nashville Predators only coach some eight years later.
• At 41, Nicklas Lidstrom, playing defence, had 62 points for the Red Wings. At 23, Kessel led the Leafs in scoring with 64 points.
• Jaromir Jagr’s first point with the Philadelphia Flyers will be his 1,600th NHL point. He needs 42 this season to pass Joe Sakic on the career scoring list.
