Canadian Christmas Eve tonight! Good Luck Leafs and every other team except the Habs.

#2 4 years ago

Can’t wait to see our team the Penguins Stanley Cup Banner get raised tomorrow night. Go Pens Go! The greatest trophy in all of sports and only one made and deserved to the team who wins its all.

#3 4 years ago

Man I love hockey!!!

#4 4 years ago

Leafs just crushing the Jets!!

#5 4 years ago

Enjoyed the banner raising. Now watching the beginning of the quest for a three-peat. Go Pens!

#6 4 years ago

The Jets will be in a fight to make the playoffs. Laine and wheeler nice pieces but goaltending issues plagued jets last year.
Feel sorry for Mason when your teams takes tons of undisciplined penalties. Buf plays like he doesn't give a crap.

#7 4 years ago

Double header tonight ...Flames/oilers battle of Alberta! ...thank you Santa.

#8 4 years ago

As much as I'd like to see the Pens 3peat I just don't see it!!! BUT the Preds won't make it past 2nd round.

#10 4 years ago

Not impressed tonight with Pens play, not all bad but I think the banner and taking it all in got to them. Hopefully tomorrow night we get back on track. Too many breakdowns. Yes they showed signs of good and can turn it up when they want too but don’t want to go down this road. Also watched the Flyers Sharks game which was interesting.

#11 4 years ago

Oilers win! Start the parade

#12 4 years ago

Just a FYI - Great site for watching the highlights of previous games: http://www.dtmts.com/ No advertisements or anything, just highlights!!

Quoted from tomdotcom:

Oilers win! Start the parade

Correction: McDavid WINS!!!

Quoted from Jackontherocks:

Agree BUT this is how they played all last season! I thought they played well 2 out of the 3 periods and for a first game....thought it was good!

Quoted from Jackontherocks:

the Flyers Sharks game which was interesting.

Sure were some poor goals let in! Going to say this now as it wont be said again ..... Simmons currently tied for the scoring leader! !

#13 4 years ago

Yup I'll be glued to the tv tonight. I really think the Leafs are going to achieve something this year.....and I hate the Leafs

#14 4 years ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

They will certainly be better and make the playoffs but they're still few players short of being a contender!
Watch that game from last night and 6 of their goals were a result of just poor play by the Jets! The Jest seem to forget that you're supposed to cover a man!!!

#15 4 years ago

Just wanted to say, wish me luck everyone ...going to be spending the Canadian thanksgiving long weekend with my wife's crazy in laws who all look like muppets.

#16 4 years ago

Saturday night convincing my brother in law why it's best to watch hockey night in Canada over his big brother cd collection. I feel sick

Quoted from cdnpinbacon:

Quoted from cdnpinbacon:

Sweet geebus man they can't be Canadian at all!!!

#18 4 years ago

Yeah...I almost cross checked my brother in law in the face not long ago when he said to me: get this mesz,, "we're bankrupt the second time but God will take care of us. Yeah, I actually posted a thread on "please kill me" in the basement. Check it out...sad thing, it's all true.

#19 4 years ago

The pens have a lot of back to back games in the 1st month and a half, seems strange. I know we have the most than most others teams about 16 to my memory.

#20 4 years ago

Omg pens.....

#21 4 years ago

10-1 LOL Chicago destroyed them LOL

Interesting , curious the record of pens back to back last year.

#23 4 years ago

Looking forward to Sat night vs Rangers! ....At The inlaws. I won't miss don cherry but during the second period, I will be whipping my b.I.L's big brother dvds in the lake.

#24 4 years ago

Nothing like an old fashion ass whoppin!!! The Pens Defense is horrible in the defensive end! New saying is "HOOOOOLLLLLYYYYY Maata is he slow"! Him and Letang were -5 lol! Anyone smell burnt toast???

Good news is .... Pens were 50% on the Power Play
Chicago sucked on the Power Play 0% (0-6) lol

Game made me wish I was at cdnpinbacon BIL house!!!!

Only two games into the season so a lot will happen! Pens do need some D guys though! Losing Cullen, Bonino and Hainsey hurt! They didnt put numbers up from an O perspective but they played solid when it came to their end!

#25 4 years ago

No mesz not even that my friend.

#26 4 years ago

I swear if I have to punch this guy out I will. There is no way I am going to miss the Leafs opener. Dammit!!!!! See you all later I have to go to hell now. Car packed including meszs elixir.

#27 4 years ago

Looking forward to Leafs vs Chicago tonight!!! Big screen windexed , beer and snacks ready.

#28 4 years ago

Any chance we get a NHL hockey pin by lets says 2020 would be nice someday.

WOW Leafs pulled another one out! Beating the Rangers and Jets wasn't so big but impressive comeback win against the Hawks!!!!

Quoted from Jackontherocks:

Never see it happening but you never know! Look at the Stern NFL and NBA games .... both a flop! Only reason the NFL game is desirable is due to the backglass reflecting a team! Of course being a re-theme didn't help! Power Play was the 17th most produced game but that was during the heyday of pinball!

I was about to send a photo of me in a hawks JErsey this morning just to piss off cdnpinbacon but decided against it this morning

#31 4 years ago

Wow....2 minutes of play...penalty...2 more minutes...penalty. Continued like that all game. I guess we will see a lot of 5 on 4 hockey this year.

#32 4 years ago

Flyers coach lost offsides challenge tonight, not sure why he called it and we see a penalty as of the new rule this year cost them the game, still don’t like the rule change and prefer the way it was before lose the time out. This is just a free penalty that should not decide or affect outcomes of games or during the game

I have to disagree with you on this one! I like the penalty as too many coaches were calling for a review of off-sides late in games when they had nothing to lose other than a timeout that wasn't going to be used anyway! I think anytime a review is called by a coach and it's lost a penalty should be assessed!

Look at game 6 of the Finals last year! Under 2 minutes to go, Penguins score and Nashville calls for a review just hoping that there was something there to overturn the goal! Why did they do it ... cause they still had a timeout and with under 2 min they had nothing to lose other than a timeout that they may have or may not have to lose! All they did was delay the game!

The NHL is trying to avoid stoppages in play! If you call for a review you're stopping the play and if there is nothing found in the review then you delayed the game by doing so! A penalty should be assessed!

Devils score on powerplay to go up 3-2 and now a holding call to NJ...this is the new hockey I guess, weird. 10 penalties a game until players learn... So a chinsy slash will determine a playoff game? So right now it's 5 on 3 leafs and NJ just scored. Wow. 4-2 Devils

Yeah .... part of me gives the NHL credit for finally calling penalties like this as they are penalties BUT the problem with it is ..... the NHL wasn't calling them for the past 100 years so the players are accustom to the stick slashing! So either the players will learn or a month or two from now the NHL will, like they normally do with "new" rules, stop calling them and we'll be back to "normal"!

#36 4 years ago

Penguins playing their "Pylon Defense" tonight!

#37 4 years ago

nice to see stammer score his first.

#38 4 years ago

Nice to see the Flyers pound the Caps 8-2.
Had a tough time bouncing from MLB to hockey last night!! Sorry guys, it is playoff time. Only time I really can get into baseball.

2 weeks later

LEIVO FINALLY CRACKS LEAF LINE UP!!! Lacklustre last night but leafs end skid .
Wish him the best folks!!!

#40 3 years ago

Next time I see him I'll ask if he would be willing to meet for autographs . There is a time set aside after each game for this.
I never talk hockey when he's here
But I would ask if anyone with kids or mesZ

#41 3 years ago

Watching some of the Caps game and have to ask....have the fans given up on this team? A deluge of empty seats!!! Granted the Isle aren't a big draw but .....

#42 3 years ago

Time to trade ovechkin and re-build.

#43 3 years ago

Wondering if any of u fellow puck heads back east have heard about this kid Brock Boeser? This rookie for my canucks scored his 1st hat trick on sat. Nite vs the pens..the kid is a real beauty...

Seen him in a few games this year and will admit he's fast but I wouldn't call him a "real beauty" just yet! He's had one really good game so far this year and that was against the Penguins. Who just happen to have one of the worse defenses in the early season!

Unfortunately for the Canucks they still have the twins! Hate to say that has both of them always have good season but they just aren't the leaders that will take the cup home! 2011 was their chance .... the Canucks next Finals appearance wont be with the Sedins!

#45 3 years ago

Really liking the new look Kings this year. I didn't like the Daryl Sutter firing, but John Stevens really has them playing great. Finally scoring some goals. Quick being healthy obviously helps. Adrian Kempe & Alex Iafallo are a couple nice young guys that can really skate. Long season, but don't count the Kings out this year.

#46 3 years ago

Nothing like ice hockey in sunny California. Just want to thank Kings & Ducks for the best game of the season so far. Last nights game was to much fun to watch.

#47 3 years ago

Boeser played 9 games on a poor team last year and scored 4 goals; this year, he’s played 12 so far and has 5 goals w 9 assists..not to bad for a young rookie on a mediocre at best team..I think that a lot of eastern teams/fans don’t get a chance to watch western opponents, unless of course u watch them play your team..

#48 3 years ago

Go Blackhawks!

Actually if you're a big hockey fan you can purchase the Center Ice package which allows you access to every televised game, which is all these days, every night! Also, if you don't want to pay for Center Ice package, you can catch the Western teams every Wednesday night on NBC Sports. Every Wednesday NBC Sports televises two games, one at 730/8 PM (Eastern) and then a second game at 10-1030 (PM) as part of their "Wednesday Rivalry Night". Just an FYI
