    Yeah, I watched that game last night, and the Flyers look like a force to be reckoned with. Bobrovsky is really impressing me and has the tools to be a stud goalie (Something the Flyers needed for a long time).

    The real key is staying healthy for the playoffs. It's a long season, and a lot can happen.

    The Panthers won two in a row. I'm hoping they will make it three in a row when they play against the Flyers on Saturday night.

    The Habs beat the Hurricanes 7-2 tonight :thumbs2:  Bad week for the Hurricanes, but a good one for the Canadiens with 3 win :)  Two powerplay goal at the end of the third sealed the deal. And Price continue to be solid in the net with an amazing save in the third, our best player so far in the season with Plekanec!

    Big, big win for the Habs over the Flyers tonight with a 3-0 score. Referee where still lame as always though, missed a few call on obvious stuff and let the game degenerate at the end.

    And the sad news is that Markov is gone for the season now, same knee injury as he got last season. Will most likely need surgery again, and peoples are saying that a second surgery for this kind of injury leave the person kinda dimished, so it could compromise his career if it's as grave as they think it is :(

    Markov's career will probably be over. I remember the samething happened to Pavel Bure.

    After 19 of the last 20 years making the playoffs, I'm just kind of stunned by my beloved Devils this season. I don't know what to make of it exactly. The players seem unmotivated. I don't know if that's John MacLean's fault or not. I don't think he's doing a terrible job. There's flashes of brilliance at times, but that's few and far between this season.

    On paper, this team should be dominating. The major injuries so far haven't helped. Something like over 100 man-games lost to injury for the Devils so far this season. :( 

    Ah well, I started watching them in the 80's when they sucked, then they gave me 20 great years of hockey, including 3 Stanley Cups. I can live with 1 bad season.

    I've read the Panthers defense is getting better.

    That game was insane. 8-7 final with the Lightning winning. It was a pretty good game, especially the 1st period. NINE freaking goals just in the 1st. :eek: 

    Know what makes me happy? Getting these babies in the mail:

    I'll be going to the Avs/Blackhawks game on December 13th, and then the game against the Habs on the 19th. Two hockey games in six days, and being 14 rows up from the ice for one? Oh yeah, I am one happy Avalanche fan. :D

    RIP Pat. He was a great coach, and always seemed to be an upstanding guy. :(  He'll definitely be missed.

    I remember when he coached the Devils back in 2003 and won the Cup.

    Tonight, Montreal Vs Toronto. Pat Burns coached both Teams during his career so will have some emotional moments.

    Scott Gomez and Brian Gionta were both with the Devils when they won the Cup with Burns as head coach

    The Sabres started Lalime against Tampa Bay with predictable results. I don't know why they bother with him anymore. The Sabres have enough of an uphill battle as is.

    Avalanche on a 4 game winning streak with the win against the Stars tonight. They blew a 3-0 lead against Dallas, but we won in shootout at least. Ugly game, but I'll take it.

    And somewhere in Vancouver, a bunch of fans are crying. 7-1 loss to Chicago, OUCH.

    Flyers are back in the winning ways. Beat the Caps last night 5-4. I though they were going to give this game away too. Glad they won it the shootout.

    Yea, the guy has been around for ages and needs to just stop playing. And I don't know what's wrong with Buffalo this year. They have the same team they did last year for their division title but this year it's not clicking.

    And the Hawks are a whole other story...

    The Panthers have been a .500 team this season. They haven't been a one game above .500 yet.

    Tonight they play Pittsburgh. I think Pittsburgh is too strong for them.
