    Each team should have a finance person dedicated to helping players ensure this does not happen.

    Took a math class in high school very similar. From balancing a check book to the stock market. It was great… learned more out that class then Algebra 1 and 2.

    He has been battling lung cancer for years and it is getting towards the end stage. Some in the over jealous Canadian media are ready to report his death so his family and the Canadians are hoping they back off.

    He’s apparently fighting cancer and recently stopped treatment.  Per some Twitter posts.

    Those between shift heaters could be haunting him.

    Alex Ovechkin scores his 50th goal of the season for the 9th time, tying Gretzky and Mike Bossy.  Gretzky ended his career with 894 and Ovi is currently at 780.  Only 114 shy of the all time goal record and at 36 Ovi most likely will break Gretzky’s goal record.  Though Gretzky’s assists record at 1,963 and points at 2,857 may never be touched.

    Also worth noting he’s come up just shy of 50 goals in a season three times in his career so the fact that he could’ve potentially had twelve, 50 goal seasons by the age of 36 is insane.
    (’19-’20) 48G; 68GP (covid yr)
    (’17-’18) 49G; 82GP
    (’06-’07) 46G; 82GP

    Hard to imagine anyone getting remotely close to Gretzky’s assist/point totals.

    So quotes of links don’t work?  Is that what I’m seeing?  Anyone who quoted a post with the Tweeter loses the actual Tweet in their quote to just the text / link.

    A was a bit shocked they reviewed it and downgraded it from a 5 to a 2.  I chuckled when Chelios, who is top 15 all time in penalty minutes, thought Lindgren should have been tossed.

    Two minutes for “roughing”.

    I like Lindgren, but do we really need hits like that in the NHL?  Can we say CTE down the road?

    Would have been 5 for the exact same hit on Cindy or Malkin.

    If you’re looking to fill the nights off with a game, this Pens/Rangers series is pretty entertaining.

    Both early games are very good.

    Whoa…..an apparent injury driven goalie change for Pittsburgh.  In the middle of the 2nd OT.

    Yikes!

    Felt like it might be cramping as there was no obvious contact but he hasn’t come back yet, maybe for a 3rd OT?

    Crosby’s line is controlling the puck in the offensive zone like they’re on a PP every shift they’re out there.

    I should not be up this late, but the Predators Avs game is quite entertaining. The Nashville goalie is having a helluva game.  Currently 1-1 in OT with shots 23-49 favoring CO.  Go smashville!

     

    edit: well shit.  Makar.

    That was only the beginning…then the fans knocked a panel of glass in the penalty box down on to the attendant who was knocked unconscious and stretchered out. When they finally restarted there was a bloody 5 minute major on BOS.

    It’s crazy town in Boston for sure. Here is the video of the glass knocking out the penalty box attendant.

    And this is the real reason they don’t want fans banging on the glass, not just because it’s annoying (which it really is too)

    Although, I did have the one time at Mariucci that one of the linesmen asked me to give a pane a good shove because it was out of alignment.

    Yeah he’s been a journeyman with being a head coach at Columbus, Florida, Vegas and now NY Rangers. He was Vegas’ coach for their first 3 years. He smiles less than Evason.

    One does not sit that close to the ice without warm clothing, unless looking for some attention.
    She’s wants everyone to see her fake lips….😂

     

    and speaking from experience of sitting behind the bench at the final five a couple years (in a jersey!) – they are terrible seats.  The sightlines and smell are terrible.

     and speaking from experience of sitting behind the bench at the final five a couple years (in a jersey!) – they are terrible seats. The sightlines and smell are terrible.

    Behind the bench is bad for wanting to watch the game. NHL smells is not that bad.  College is not bad compared to high school.  Some high schoolers are so bad they melt your nasal hairs.

    I remember having a seat behind the bench at the X when gophers played one of the last final five games ever (vs CC) and I couldn’t see anything. Was awful but that game was bad anyhow so w/e ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    It appears Kuemper just took a stick through the opening in his facemark to the eye.

    This is why they don’t allow cat’s eye cages at most levels. I’m not saying they shouldn’t be allowed, it is pretty rare to have this happen. But other cages make it impossible.

    I remember having the same cage as a kid, before they became illegal. I don’t remember anything ever getting through the eye holes, but I do remember that they didn’t have a chin cup on them. So,  several times during a game, practice, it would feel like you were forcing your face through a cheese grater

    Natalie is originally from Toronto but moved to Texas. You can take the girl out of Canada but you can’t take the love of hockey out of the Canadian. Now in response to her clothing choice it’s hot in Texas.

    She wants you to retweet if you “seen” her at the game last night.  🤔

    Guess you can’t have it all.  😜
