In this edition of Five on Three, Anthony Pucik, Patrick Burns and Kristian O'Hara look into the health of Rich Peverley and how the NHL handled the situation. 

Also, they look into the seven-game win streak of the Boston Bruins and if they are the best team in the Eastern Conference. 

Finally, a look into the three local teams: how Ruutu has helped the Devils, how St. Louis has not helped the Rangers' issues scoring and why the seven-goal third period for the Islanders is good, but not great. 

Big East Journal: Day 2 - McDermott.

by Kenny Ducey

I've seen few college basketball players over the years compare to what I saw last night from Doug McDermott. It was my first time seeing him in person, and I'm glad I'll get to watch him again tonight at 9:30 against Xavier after Creighton took it to 12-21 DePaul by a score of 84-62.

After a thrilling game yesterday against George Mason in the Atlantic-10 Tournament play-in game, Fordham was unable to pull out a victory against Dayton in the next round of the tournament, losing 87-74. 

Dayton was up 50-31 at the end of the first half, but a 12-5 run by Fordham to start the second half brought them closer. The Rams would cut the Flyers' lead to as little as five, but would see Dayton start to pull away, a team that shot 58.8 percent from the floor on the afternoon.
