Maple Leafs @ Canadiens (7:00 CBC, 0-0 four minutes in)
Capitals @ Blackhawks (8:00 NBCSN, banner raising pregame)
Jets @ Oilers (10:00)
Pretty entertaining game so far, 2-1 Habs with 6 minutes to go in the first. After watching for a few minutes it dawned on me that these teams are now in the wings division and I have been smiling ever since.
My Leafs are taking care of business!
for welcoming Corey Tropp to the NHL in a manner that is so fitting.
Trouba is playing tonight for the Jets!
while it lasts. It'll be a while before another one if the Wings have anything to say about it. :)
I wish I could watch it, but I don't get NBC Sports Network. That's what I get for cheaping out and getting Dish. Can't wait for this contract to be up.
Hockey Night in Canada, one of the truly underappreciated blessings of life in Southeastern Michigan.
To that! When I lived in Phoenix and Chicago no amount of cable tv premium could bring in the cbc
Used to be a blessing of living in Michigan. Now I get HNIC in Florida.
1-0 HAWKS. Bollig with the goal.
Connor Carrick is playing for the Caps :(
You are underestimating the division. No more c bus and Nashville
Instead, 3 of the bottom 4 teams in ESPN's power rankings--Tampa, Florida, Buffalo.
I would take the over, but I wouldn't put too much on it. Some other ESPN computer prediction machine said they would have 88 points, IIRC, in an article I read yesterday. That seems really low.
That's insane that ESPN has those three teams that low.
we're watching the Reds at Pirates. One game playoff == more drama.
To be fair that game really hasn't been all that drama filled. The Reds are giving away at bats, and Liriano is in cruise control.
NHL season starting (HNIC!), MLB Playoffs, B1G Football. What a great time of year!
Trouba has had a decent game so far. 1st period he looked great, getting a few quality shots and drawing a penalty. 2nd period he has looked like it's moving a little fast for him, but still is playing well.
Edit: Just as I post this, Trouba gets his first career point with an assist on the Frolik goal.
I know the Wings aren't playing tonight, but I can't shake the feeling that Brendan Shanahan will still find something to suspend Justin Abdelkader for.
Trouba jumps a Taylor Hall pass at center and blasts is past Dubnyk, first goal of his career.
Trouba is playing an outstanding 3rd period. He's looking great.
Absolutely. That near miss on Hall was a play you just don't see much anymore on a skill player today. Very impressed.
