- Tim Lincecum, who's 100 votes snagged him his second straight Cy Young Award as the best pitcher in the National League. It was a close vote - with a couple of St. Louis Cardinals within 10 votes of him.
- Milan Michalek, who got his 100th career goal tonight for the Ottawa Senators as they beat Pittsburgh, 6-2.
Were the Buffalo Sabres super in 1979? Not quite - but they were above average, finishing second in the Adams Division with 88 points. Ahead of them with 100 points in first were the Boston Bruins. These two teams meet Friday night in Buffalo. The Sabres have been super so far this season with a record of 12-5-1 while Boston is just 9-8-4 and out of the playoff picture. By the way, the Montreal Canadiens won their fourth straight Stanley Cup in 1979 - beating the New York Rangers. The New York Islanders would win the next four Stanley Cups.
