I think it's also partially that the Rangers suck

The Sabres-Isles game featured 4 shorthanded goals in one period. I'm guessing it's happened before but I'll be damned if I know when.

Gonna be honest, that trade of Stepan and Raanta to the Coyotes for a bag of magic beans is one of the harder to explain ones in a while.

Ovie has 6 goals in a little over 4 periods of play.

He scored a hatty in the third period last game and then another in the first period of today's game. So 6 goals in 2 periods. I think sometimes people forget how good he is.

IIRC last year started with a bunch of crazy high scores too. I hope it keeps up this time. Fuck yeah 8-5 games.

If Lundqvist is done/washed up they are fucked beyond belief.

Today is the first, but not last, day of the year making fun of the Vancouver Canucks becomes "official".

Plenty of time left and I'm expecting a bottom 5 finish for Vancouver, but I've got to get this in while I can...

TALBOT EXPOSED. The first Horvat goal was a legit beauty.

The Score had an article making a bunch of NHL predictions, one of which was AV getting canned by the new year. Henrik is done and so is that team's chances. Crocodile tears.

Hahaha I don't even have an explanation for Edmonton's near-permanent yips in Vancouver. I mean, look at this roster, the longest serving Oiler is probably RNH or something stupid at this point so they have no real excuses. That first period was bowling shoe ugly.

Kris Russell being defended constantly by "watch the game nerds" people is impossibly dumb given that watching the game you would see how incredibly bad he is with the puck in his own end of the ice.

I'm watching like 3 things, so I only partially caught it but was it Russell that gave away the puck following the Dorsett forecheck on that Sutter goal? That shit was heinous.

He made an awful pass then gave it away for the second goal. It was also one of his trademark zone non-exits that led to the PP that the 1st goal came from,  so that was neat.

 

Four years!

Tim Murray wasted 5 years of my life and we are now basically in the beginning of a rebuild having accomplished nothing. GMTM is close to Ed Johnson/Mike Milbury/Doug Waddle level as a total fuck up of a GM and should never get another job in hockey again (including beer vendor).

I think it's a valid question that for all the bottoming out they've done what do they really have to show for it beyond Eichel. Where's their Oscar Klefbom for example? It's still so thin.

Blues start season short Alex Steen, Jay Bouwmeester, and lose Robby Fabbri for the season. 3rd line consists of the "fun" trio of Magnus Paajarvi, Oskar Sunqvist, and Tage Thompson. Vladimir Sobotka is on their top line.

 

Oh, and there 3-0-0. Cause Hockey.

In the building for the Canes game against the Wild and it was the best atmosphere I've been to in almost a decade at a game in Raleigh.  The crowd was lit and you could see the players wanted to do well but maybe came out a bit nervous.  I really feel that the Hurricanes were robbed of goalie interference on the goal with 0.3 seconds left in regulation but a win is a win.  Onto a very tough challenge tomorrow at home vs the Blue Jackets.  Let's go Canes!

Vegas' intro was phenomenal. Respectful, well done. Couldn't really have gone any better.

I think it's noble that the Sens clearly refuse to score on the power play because it just wouldn't be fair to the other team.

Just for the record - the New York media is officially wanting Alain Vigneault fired

Whatever the record for most shorthanded goals in a season is, the Sabres are going to obliterate it. It's way too early to declare Housley a flop as coach but the early returns aren't promising.
