He also dishes on his team’s chances, advanced stats, the Golden Knights, dressing up like a security guard to fool his teammates — and yes, the Superman Punches.
Over in the West, I’m still not totally sold on the Stars. I think their top players can carry them a long way, but I’m less certain it’s all the way to the playoffs. Dallas’ goaltending hasn’t been amazing, but serviceable.

And most damning of all: Why should anyone believe the Giants under Mara’s watch have what it takes internally to start winning again even if McAdoo and Reese are given the Manning treatment at season’s end?
The Rams have had a remarkable turnaround since last year’s disastrous 4-12 campaign. The 31-year-old McVay has energized the team and changed the culture of negativity that existed under previous coaches. McVay was touted as a quarterback guru and he’s done wonders with second-year quarterback Jared Goff, who looked lost as a rookie.
Goff has been superb this season and turned in his fourth 300-yard passing game of the season. He threw two touchdown passes to give him 18 for the year to just four interceptions. The Rams have been hitting big plays all year and a 53-yard strike to rookie Cooper Kupp set up a 7-yard touchdown pass to rookie Josh Reynolds.
