There was a report that the Canadiens are expected to buy out the final two years of Scott Gomez’s albatross of a contract. (Gomez says he hasn’t heard anything about a buyout from the team, for what it’s worth.) Meanwhile, Ryan McDonagh played, like, a million minutes in the Rangers’ 2-1 triple-overtime win in Washington. Well-played, Slats.
