I went to the Nine Inch Nails concert so I missed the Avs game, but I'm catching the replay now. Our local sports network (it is owned by the owner of the As and Nuggets), change their play by play  announcer, I hate the new guy. It seems like a pretty good game so far. I watched some of the Fliers game earlier, it is so bizzarre seing Peter the Great in a different uniform. :-\

Preds game was a blast last night, and San Jose certainly didn't look like a top three team to me. Kariya and Sullivan electrified the building every time they were on the ice.

To answer Jason's question on what Nashville did besides adding Kariya, they beefed up their D by adding Markov and now have the ability to win faceoffs thanks to Yanic. More importantly, several of our first round picks are coming of age this year, and coupled with having Sullivan for an entire season as opposed to 20-odd games, there's plenty to be excited about in Nashville.

I haven't made my playoff predictions yet, but I'm taking the Preds over the Wings in our division. Somebody here has to  :P

Look out.  Wings are 2-0 and have already scored 9 goals.  Their special teams are playing awesome.

Talk about a roller coaster ride for myself tonight.  I found out the Bruins are playing in Calgary on Dec 17th (a quick 4 hour drive away) thanks to the heads up from my mother-in-law that lives in Calgary.  Seeing the Bruins has always been a dream of mine!

I was so excited and went to go buy tickets online tonight, but the game is already sold out.  Can you believe it?  2 months away and sold out already.   :'(

I may have to try and buy a Calgary newspaper once in a while and see if I can get a couple tickets from people selling theirs.   :-\

I missed the pens tonight but I heard Boston came back on us and the Pens lost one that was simply theirs to lose. 

And that's our 2nd OT loss too, which blows.  Our goaltending is just attrocious and I'm pissed we aren't putting Fleury back in over Thibault at this point.  It was a joke that he got starter over a guy that basically carried the Pens in their last season with his goaltending, young or not.  I'd be starting him next game after an 0-3 start by Thibault, be damned how old he is or what he thinks he should be doing.  He should realize he wasn't our first choice anyway and be playing harder than he is.

Nice to see (highlights) Crosby get his first goal though.  The city's already buzzing outside the hockey fans about this kid, and the asinine local sports guys are all now talking about him.  What a bunch of tools those guys are.

Thank god someone listens to me.  Now I need to get to Hasbro...  Hmmm.

Edit: Don't mind that severely bruised knee in practice stuff.  I shot him with a ninja dart on the way to practice, that's why Thibault's out.

I'm liking the Flames, I have at least one Flame in each pool, usually two ;)

The Avs are playing dirt nasty tonight. 6-1 at the end of the 2nd period. The rookiees are playing extremely well, Marek Svatos already has a 3pt night. I'm a little disapointed they lost the shut-out, but a blow out is equally as exciting. :)

Wings looked very sluggish tonite.  They didn't even put up a fight.

Ugggh. The Avs blew it tonight. They were up 3-0 in the second and lost 5-4. Svatos has been amazing this season, it's too bad his 2nd goal got called back tonight, it should have been a goal, but it was such a close call I guess I can see why they called it the way they did.
