TEN Games in the NHL for a Thursday night

10/13/11 in NHL   |   Debi_L   |   11281 respect

 As I look at the schedule of games on tonight, the first thing that came to mind was how many of my friends' favorite teams are playing, in addition to my own of course.

It's still early going, with only a handful of games having been played so far, but some teams are already showing some early dominance.  Thankfully, one of those teams, the Toronto Maple Leafs, are not playing tonight.

I'm a Calgary Flames' fan, as many of you know, and so far, the Flames are not burning bright.  They take on the Montreal Canadiens tonight, and I'm hoping this will be the game that turns their season around.  They need a win!

Becky's team, the Kings take on the New Jersey Devils.  I'm not sure if Becky was going to this game, but if so, I sure hope they give her something to cheer about.  Both teams are at 1-1-0 so far, and both will be aiming for another mark in the W column.  The Kings won in the only matchup between the two last year, but they will play again on the 25th of this month.

The Caps (yay) meet up with the Pens (boo) tonight as well, and with both teams celebrating only wins so far this season, it should be a decent game.  That game is broadcast on the NHL Network.

In Canada, the second game on TSN will be the new Winnipeg Jets meeting up for the only time this season with the Chicago Blackhawks.  The Blackhawks won against the Thrashers last year in a shootout.  The Jets have played only one game so far this season, so are still feeling some growing pains and the game will undoubtedly be a challenge for them.

If you're not into what Network TV has to offer, join us here for some chatter.  The schedule of games and live scoring can be found on NHL.com

Holy hell did the Avs put a whooping on the Sens, who looked god awful

I'll take solace in the fact that the Pens still got a point, and haven't had a regulation loss yet.

Kipper wins #263 now in sole place in career wins in the Flames net!

Congrats to him!

 BTW, this is killing me, cuz the Calgary Stampeders are playing the BC Lions, whom I hate more than the Canucks, in the CFL and the game is tied.......

 The Av's are killing the Sens, 6-1!!! Bit of a surprise there, but hey, I'll take it!!

And Christi's Preds are getting mutilated by the Coyotes

Wideman scores in OT and the Caps win. Hard to complain about 3-0, but getting outshot 18-3 in the 3rd period was just terrible. Vokoun is the main reason Caps survived that.

Apparently Quick doesn't want to repeat his stellar-ness in the shoot out and Hedberg does. BOOOOO! Devils win 2-1. I still haven't seen a win this year-----------including preseason. 

   Sorry Becky, I'm sure they are saving it for your next attendance.

10/13/11   |   Debi_L   |   11281 respect

 Washington wins in OT!! YAY!


oooops, sorry Joe

 The Penguins released Crosby just so he could practice? Is this some kind of scheme by the Pens to get Crosby to practice with another team only to have that teams hopes crushed when they find out he can't be medically cleared to play an actual game? 

Maybe, I can think of a few that would be nice to see their hopes crushed.

10/13/11   |   Joe_L   |   12371 respect

Caps win in OT 3-2.

 SHOOT OUT! Go KINGS!!

After a beautiful first period of play, the travel seemed to catch up on the Kings. Lucky to take this to OT. Great action in OT. Come on Quick! 


And Debi-----I am with them in spirit.

Ummmm Nope, just re-checked that, and I'm pretty sure I got it right, Joe.

I knew there was a reason I liked you.

Caps now 3-for-3 in games ending up in OT this year.

10/13/11   |   woody050681   |   13666 respect

 Wings up 2-0 on the Ginger twins and the other Canucker f**kers 

Did I do that right Becky? I can never remember if Canucker f**kers is one word or two.

10/13/11   |   Joe_L   |   12371 respect

Oh yeah, Crosby was released today to participate in contact practices only.

And I guess Becky won't be going to the game, seeing as it's in New Jersey
