Stamkos, Richards key routs

The Nyquil is kicking in, and kicking in hard, so this is what we call a speed recap.

--Steven Stamkos had two goals and four points as Tampa Bay beat up Carey Price and Montreal, 4-1.
--Ditto Mike Richards, who helped Philadelphia torch Los Angeles, 7-4.

--Ondrej Pavelec's 42 saves and Tobias Enstrom's two goals helped Atlanta down Boston, 3-2.
--Paul Stastny had a goal and assist and Colorado beat Edmonton, 4-3.

The others
--Kristian Huselius scored twice and R.J. Umberger had the game-winner as Columbus edged Toronto, 3-2.
--San Jose blew a two-goal lead in 22 seconds in the final half-minute of period two but recovered to beat Chicago, 5-3. Dany Heatley had a goal and assist.

Quick thoughts
--Twitter world's abuzz with "Carey Price is tired, panic time in Montreal." Which I can't argue with. Someone mentioned Montreal's offense drying up. Hardly. It was never good to begin with.

--Not very impressive debut for Michael Leighton for Philadelphia. Offense picked him up. Can't wait to see what the Flyers do with these three goalies.

--Is Steve Mason back? Probably not.
