-For those who missed it, Craig Anderson was named the NHL’s first star of the month.
-Binghamton lost 4-2 to St. John’s last night; Robin Lehner made 30 saves in the loss while Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Shane Prince provided the offense.

-Elmira lost 4-1 to Toledo last night, with Louie Caporusso picking up the Jackals only goal.
-The farcial Phoenix ownership situation continues as Greg Jamison missed his deadline on a sweetheart deal and now a hardline group of city councillors will make it impossible for he (or anyone else) to get the same. It’s seemed inevitable from the beginning of the process that the Coyotes will move, but the question remains when and where.
