Pre-season is already underway :cheer:

This season includes a couple of games in Europe in early October, the Winter Classic on New Year's Day in Pittsburgh, and the All-Star game in Carolina.


If you subscribe to HBO, look for this in December:

The Penguins and Washington Capitals will participate in the HBO series ‘24/7 Penguins/Capitals: Road To The NHL Winter Classic,’ a behind-the-scenes show similar to the NFL’s popular ‘Hard Knocks’ series.
The four-show series is scheduled to air Dec. 15, 22 and 29 and Jan. 5 at 10 pm., with an immediate encore at 11 p.m.



Pierre McGuire narrowly avoided becoming an injured bystander at a Leafs-Sens game the other night :yikes:



Still :swoon: -ing over seeing the new building in Pittsburgh last weekend :cool: .

Thanks for starting the thread deltask8er!! Great title for it BTW. :D

Got the Nuckies/Duckies game on the CBC right now. I think one of the smartest off season moves was the Canucks taking the Captaincy away from Luongo and giving it to Sedin. There's so much responsiblity both on and off the ice when you're the Captain and I just couldn't see it working when the Canucks first gave it to Roberto. Now that all of that is on someone else's shoulders, he can now simply concentrate on keeping pucks out of that net.

Speaking of Captains...It is so wonderful to have a Captain in Maple Leafs Land again. It looks good on Dion Phanuef too. :)

Hockey Night in Canada offers games in 3D

The CBC and Panasonic Canada announced Wednesday they will bring the first 3D broadcast of HNIC to Canadian homes on Dec. 11 when the Toronto Maple Leafs host the Montreal Canadiens.

The second 3D broadcast available during the 2010-11 NHL season is scheduled for Feb. 20 at McMahon Stadium in Calgary when the Flames host the Canadiens in the Heritage Classic.


And this isn't NHL news, but my 5-year-old nephew scored 3 goals in his first roller hockey game the other day :cool: .

Even pre-season Hockey brings out the rivals....Kings pummeled the Ducks 8-3 on Tuesday and yes, us Kings fans have been gloating over that result for the past two days. :D

Overture, curtain, lights

This is it, we hit the heights

On with the show, this is it!!

I've had that running through my head all day today. Can NOT wait for tonight and HNIC!!!

In the West I'll be rooting for the Blackhawks and Canucks, while in the East I'll be pulling for the Capitals and Leafs.

(though I should probably support my current hometown team, the Blue Jackets)

Well...It was half of a wonderful Season Opening Night for me.

YAY Leafies winning over the Habs and that one save by Giggy...I still have no idea whatsoever how he kept that puck out. None at all. Very good start to the Season.


Oh my Flames...Sigh!! :(

Has everyone seen Jordan Eberle's first NHL goal though? Holy Hockey Pucks that was a beauty and then some. If you haven't seen it, you will on Monday when the Plays of the Week are shown. It truly was a highlight reel goal.

I so did not envy Jordan or Taylor Hall last night. So much expectations on their shoulders in Oil Country and their first NHL game is the Home Opener!?! I was glad to see that both handled all of the many eyes watching their every move last night in their stride. :)

I was watching the first Capitals game of the season on local TV when... :eek: :eek: :eek:

Just 2 minutes and 25 seconds into the Atlanta Thrashers' opening game at home against the Washington Capitals, goalie Ondrej Pavelec suddenly collapsed in his crease; medical personnel rushed to his aid and he was taken off the ice on a stretcher.

Warning: The following video, from Comcast SportsNet D.C.'s coverage, may be disturbing to some viewers:


The video isn't as bad now that I know he's still alive. But he just wasn't moving AT ALL.

I was coming in to post about that very thing last night when my connection went on me.

I can't even begin to imagine how scary that was. Especially for the little ones in the crowd. Glad he's okay and I hope a reason for what happened is found and fast!!

edited to add...During the Pre Game on HNIC, they mentioned that they'd talked to the GM of the Thrashers earlier today to see how the lad was doing. He told them that Ondrej Pavelec told him two things that had the chills running down my spine...

1 ~ He doesn't remember anything that happened from after The Star Spangled Banner.


2 ~ When he came to in the ambluance on the way to the hospital, he couldn't feel his legs.

Now, factor in they're saying he's got a concussion and headache today, which until I heard about this I was blaming on the way he had fell last night. After hearing this though, I do not have a good feeling about what actually happened for him to pass out like that last night. Not good at all!! :(

Yes, it was declared a "fainting spell". I hope it was something simple like his equipment was cutting off circulation.

Oy, the Penguins have yet to win in their new stadium :wall: .

I, at least, thought this fight (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rej9IUCjz8) was interesting. This :cat: in front of the TV doesn't agree :lol: .


If lewd gestures interest you more than fights,

At first glance, it might appear as if James Wisniewski of the New York Islanders was performing an impromptu bit of karaoke during their home game against the New York Rangers this afternoon.

That's until you see it's Sean Avery standing in front of him ... and you see the following video, in which Wisniewski gives the Rangers' pest a mouthful.


New York vs. New York...should we really be surprised?


And now for the "There are hockey fans WHERE???!!" segment:

That was a great story about the Troops in Malaysia. Thanks for that. :)



Best Regular Season start for the Leafs since 93-94!!

Although, the Rangers came awfully close during that OT last night, but the boys were able to pull it off and w/a great show of the basics. Get someone in front of the Goalie, keep him there and then shoot!! Dion Phaneuf got in the NYR's goalie's face, turned himself into a screen and then Phil Kessel did the rest. :D

What a start to the Regular Season!! We all know you can't go into the Playoffs w/your play in the early months, but if you end up being one of those teams in March/early April on the brink and where every win counts, the play of the team right now can sure determine that.

And then...There's my Flames. Oy vey... :(

Looks like the NHL will make PTI tomorrow. (http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puck_daddy/post/Video-Canucks-Rick-Rypien-attacks-Minnesota-fa?urn=nhl-278356)

Thanks a lot dumbass, enjoy your extended vacation.

10-20-2010, 11:38 PM
And the NHL has suspended the twit in the lead up to the Hearing (http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/story/2010/10/20/sp-nhl-canucks-rypien.html)

Looking into my crystal ball, I forsee a loss of money and a suspension in this ding a ling's future.

10-23-2010, 04:02 AM
I've seen worse lol. I don't know.. I think at some point the fans have to take some responsibility too. Not saying what Rypien did was right.. but he was visibly PO'd when he came off the ice and the guy in the stands was being a little snot. He's trying to come off as completely innocent (I was just standing there clapping!) but he's full of it. If you watch he was leaning into the tunnel.

Anyway.. Rypien was suspended for 6 games and the Canucks got a $25,000 fine (http://www.vancouversun.com/sports/gets+right+with+Canuck+Rick+Rypien+suspension/3714233/story.html)
