8:45 PM The horn blows and we have a very different story than when we began the 1st. It's 5-4 Canadiens after two. We'll give you the scores, then start over again for the 3rd Period.
8:43 PM Penalty on Montreal. Johnson will go off and Toronto has a chance to tie this game.
8:41 PM Coliacavo SCORE! 5-4 now, a weird bounce of a MTL stick pops in and we have a hockey game.
8:38 PM 2-1 Tampa now, Kozlov just missed tying the game. 2-0 Minnesota over STL.
8:34 PM Penalty on Toronto, Kilger's off. Leafs gotta' do something to stop the bleeding. A kill or a shorthanded goal would be huge here. SCORE! Higgins, 5-3.
