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!
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.
'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.
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.
My buddy was at the Avalanche/Wild game last week. I was certain the Avalanche would crush them. I guess I was way off.
Are they still doing the post game cellies on the ice?
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. 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.
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.
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.
