Regardless, check out some of the top plays from the past week and see where your favorite team ranks within their conference.

NHL Top 5

1. Nashville Predators (15-6-3) [LW: 3]

  • Last Week (3-0-1): W 3-2 (SO) vs MON, W 2-0 at STL, L 3-4 (SO) at CAR, W 3-2 vs CHI
  • This Week: vs VAN (11/30), vs ANA (12/2), vs BOS (12/4), at DAL (12/5)
  • Rongy’s Star: Flip Forsberg – 3 Goals, 1 Assist
  • Video:

2. St. Louis Blues (17-6-1) [LW:1]

  • Last Week (1-1-0): L 0-2 vs NSH, W 6-3 vs MIN
  • This Week: vs ANA (11/29), vs LA (12/1), @ MIN (12/2), @ MON (12/5)
  • Rongy’s Star: Jaden Schwartz – 2 Goals vs MIN
  • Quote: “That’s what we’re going to face all year. We have to be expecting that. Again, if we just stay in the moment and make sure that we are prepared to play and ready to play our game for 60 minutes then we’ll be fine. I think that our intentions were right coming into the game. I think maybe we were a little nervous because we built it up as a big game. We were on our heels. I think we’ve got to be ready to attack the game a little bit more. But again, we gave up one goal. We’ve got to make sure we keep defending and we know that we can be sharper offensively and obviously that will turn things around.” – Blues coach Mike Yeo after the loss to Nashville.

3. Winnipeg Jets (15-6-3) [LW: 4]

  • Last Week (3-1-0): W 2-1 @ LA, W 4-1 @ ANA, L 0-4 @ SJ, W 7-2 vs MIN
  • This Week: @ COL (11/29), vs VGS (12/1), vs OTT (12/3)
  • Rongy’s Star: Nikolaj Ehlers – 2 Goals, 3 Assists
  • Quote: “On the board, we’re the fourth line, but on the ice, we don’t feel like it a fourth line. We feel like we can produce every night and outplay every match we have. It’s a great matchup for us every night.” – Jets Mathieu Perreault on the fourth line’s recent success. The Jets are 5-2 since that line joined forces.

4. Tampa Bay Lightning (17-5-2) [LW: 2]

  • Last Week (2-2-0): W 3-2 vs CHI (OT), L 1-3 @ WAS, L 2-5, L 2-5 @ PIT, W 2-0 @ BUF
  • This Week: @ BOS (11/29), vs SJ (12/2), vs NYI (12/5)
  • Rongy’s Star: Andrei Vasilevskiy – 2 Wins, 98 Saves on 102 Shots (96%)
  • Quote: “Sometimes, in the game it’s hard not to get frustrated. But then you go watch, and say, ‘You know, we actually had some decent chances.’ The play that made me laugh a little bit was when (Namestnikov) fanned on that chance in the slot (Saturday). It was the exact same play we had in San Jose, and if it goes in, everyone is talking about what a great play that was.” – Steven Stamkos on the 1st lines small cold-streak.

5. Toronto Maple Leafs (16-9-1) [LW: 5]

  • Last Week (2-1-1): L 1-2 (SO) @ FLA, W 5-4 @ CAR, L 2-4 vs WAS, W 4-1 @ CAL
  • This Week: @ EDM (11/30), @ VAN (12/2)
  • Rongy’s Star: Frederik Andersen – 2 Wins, Shootout Loss, 104 Saves on 110 Shots (94.5%)
  • Video: 

 

NHL Bottom 5

27. Florida Panthers (10-12-2) [LW: 29]

  • The Panthers won three games this week and still couldn’t escape the bottom five. Do it again, maybe they get it.

28. Philadelphia Flyers (8-10-7) [LW: NR]

  • Three straight overtime losses this week, sheesh. The Flyers can’t catch a break nor stop their free fall in the standings. Overall, they’ve lost nine straight (0-4-5).

29. Edmonton Oilers (10-13-2) [LW: 28]

  • Connor McDavid and the Oilers won three out of four this week, but it’ll take another week of such production to lift them from the bottom of the barrel. If they can sustain this success against the Leafs and Flames in coming games, I’ll be willing to elevate the Oilers from the Bottom 5.

30. Arizona Coyotes (6-17-4) [LW: 30]

  • Arizona found a way to squeak out a victory against the Kings in overtime but lost their other three games this week. After reeling off three straight on a Canadian road swing, the Coyotes have come back down to Earth.

31. Buffalo Sabres (6-15-4) [LW: 31]

  • Their win against Edmonton was their first win in over two and a half weeks. Other than that, they’ve been shutout by Montreal and Tampa Bay their last two skates.

Friday Night Recap Week 9

Friday Night Spotlight Game of the Week

#16 Seventy-First (6-2) 35, #6 Scotland (6-1) 56

In his first feature in the Friday Night Spotlight, Zamir White reminded everyone why he’s the nation’s top running back. The future Georgia Bulldog showed out Friday Night scoring the Scots first three touchdowns of the game including a massive 81-yard dash through several arm tackles to the house. Basically, the power of the Scotland running game was too overwhelming for a Seventy-First squad that has very well over the course of the season but had yet to face a team with the firepower Scotland has.

White and Scotland QB Warren Bell utilized the read-option to perfection all night long. Combined, the duo of White and Bell totaled 597 yards (White: 307, Bell: 290) and scored all 8 Scot touchdowns (Bell: 5, White 3); all rushing. The two also connected on two passes for 48 yards. Bell and Scotland head coach Richard Bailey gave credit to their offensive line after the game. Warren Bell: “The offensive line was blocking well, and we were executing the plays. Seventy-First is a good team, so we tried to come out and get momentum on our side early.” Bailey harped more of the same, “When we’ve got all of our offensive line back, like we had tonight…, it doesn’t really even matter that they know it’s coming.”

Kyler Davis did his best to keep Seventy-First within striking distance. The junior QB was 15 for on 26 pass attempts for 195 yards and all five Falcon touchdowns; four of which were caught by senior Reggie Bryant. Running back Fabion Jones added 117 yards on 17 carries. Seventy-First’s 35 points are the most points allowed to an opponent by Scotland all season.

Early in the 3rd Quarter, only down 21-35 at this point, Seventy-First was marching downfield looking to cut the lead to a single touchdown. On the Scotland 30-yard line, Kyler Davis made his only, yet most devastating mistake of the game. The Falcon QB had single coverage on the outside and his wide receiver was even with his defender. Had Davis put more power behind his throw and led his receiver to the back of the end zone, they had a perfect shot at a touchdown. Instead, the pass was underthrown and fell right into an aware Davon Ratliffe’s hands for an interception on the three-yard line.

On the next drive, Scotland took the ball all the way downfield for another Bell touchdown. The 14-play drive and score pushed the lead to 42-21 and completely deflated Seventy-First’s chances. “We really got just enough stops to get us a little bit of a cushion which was big,” Bailey said after the game; adding “We went 97 yards to go down and score, and that’s big in a game like this.”

The win moves Scotland County (6-1, 4-0) into sole possession of first place in the Sandhills Athletic 4A Conference. This Friday they play at home against conference foe Pinecrest (5-3, 2-2). Seventy-First (6-2, 3-1) will look to get back in the win column at home verses Purnell Swett (3-5, 0-4).

 Like last week’s FNS Game of the Week winner, D.W. Butler, Scotland County came into Friday Night’s bout with only one blemish on their record. Also like Butler, the Fighting Scots only loss came in their opening game of the season to now-#1 Mallard Creek. A true testament to how impressive the Mavericks season has progressed. They’ve beaten three of the current top six teams in the state. Don’t tell Wake Forest, Heritage, or West Forsyth though, I’m sure they’d love to get a crack at Mallard Creek.
