Devils tix are pretty cheap on the secondary market right now. I am glad we don't have season tix this year. They beat Anaheim last night 3-1.A coworker took his wife and kids to the Red Wings game last night. Less than $50 for 4 tickets (including fees) for 2nd row, center ice, in the 2nd level. I remember the days when those tickets would have been $150 each. Oh how the mighty have fallen!
The Michigan Goal needs to be renamed the Svech...Svech pulled off the lacrosse goal AGAIN last night against the Jets. It was even better this time. Hellebuyck knew it was coming and tried to block it, but Svech adjusted at the last second and dumped it under his arm instead.
6-3 win over a very good Jets team in freaking Winterpeg. I'll take it! We are heating up.
Couldn't watch the game... not happy with the outcome. Seems the Avs folded like a lawn chair at the end...'Canes won 3-1 (2-1 since the last was an EN and I just don't count those) against the Avalanche last night in Denver. The two hottest teams in the league and we came out on top. Since November, our PP/PK has been absolutely on fire. The PK is ranked second in the league, only behind the Sharks. PP is 5th or 6th. In the 12 years or so that I've been a fan, I have never once seen the special teams at that level.
I went to the Devils-Rangers winter classic a few years ago at Yankee Stadium. It was one of the coldest days of the year. How cold? So cold that the beer froze inside the tap lines.Playing hockey outside in Texas just seems very strange. I guess they'll play in Miami or Tampa soon.
That beer was watered down.I went to the Devils-Rangers winter classic a few years ago at Yankee Stadium. It was one of the coldest days of the year. How cold? So cold that the beer froze inside the tap lines.
The weird part with the "Mild" is that they were projected to stink this year... they have defied those odds led by a core of "old" guys. Boudreau is a good coach too... and the Avs haven't shown up against them all season... they havent shown up against the Central Division at all either. They play St Louis tonight in Denver. Hoping something changes.My buddy was at the Avalanche/Wild game last week. I was certain the Avalanche would crush them. I guess I was way off.
Yeah, but they are starting to become repetitive. I'm not sure they know how to stop doing them, but I'm not sure the guys are that interested in continuing. Justin Williams is returning though, so maybe he'll spice it back up.Are they still doing the post game cellies on the ice?
Gallant is probably another casualty of the culture change in coaches. There's no way the Knights would just dump him so quickly, they are only 3 points out of first place in the Pacific Division.
If this was the case, you would expect a sudden removal followed by an interim coach. Instead they announced the hire of Pete DeBoer as his replacement.Gallant is probably another casualty of the culture change in coaches.

It will be awkward because Gallant is also the coach of the Pacific all stars.
The mood swing associated with wins and losses has been brought up as a topic of discussion on our forum.Couldn't watch the game last night, but if the Facebook fan group I'm in is to be believed (and they aren't), we need to throw away our whole team and try again.
This is very relevant to the Buffalo Sabres because they are trying to catch the Leafs for a playoff spot. Going into Monday's trade deadline, the Sabres trail the Leafs by 6 standings points with a game in hand. It could turn out that Ayers helps the Sabres make the playoffs.Ayres became just the third emergency goaltender in the modern era to play in the NHL, and he went out and set a few records. At 28:41, it’s the most ice time by an emergency backup in NHL history. He also became the first to win a game. And at 42 years and 194 days, Ayres is the oldest goaltender ever – emergency backup or otherwise – to win a regular-season debut.
