Canucks had a great game last night. Very entertaining to watch. Daniel Sedin's broken lip/tooth was kinda gross and bloody, but nice to see he didn't let that get to him, and he scored a goal just seconds later.

How was it?

I may try to go to the Islanders game on Saturday night. I may have a way of pulling off a freebie. If this is the case, I may just tire myself out by saying hockey for ten minutes.

It was good. he first period she was kinda freaked out, and the second period she was jumping around. She actually enjoyed the race between the hot dog, french fries and Sparky the Dragon and the zambonies more than the hockey. It was fun.

Well, considering we are talking about the Islanders, I can see how the racing hot dog, fries, Sparky and the zambonies are more entertaining.


I am headed to the game tonight. Should be fun.

Sweet game.

Flyers score 3 in the third to take the lead then give up a goal to send it into OT.

So, I got to see five fights, my first shoot out, Four Flyers in the penalty box and a good crowd at the coliseum.

^ That was an odd game, fights and penalties the first 2 periods but settled right down to hockey in the 3rd.

Big win for the Flyers to stay ahead of Carolina for 4th. I think they're pretty assured of 4th with the games in hand but you don't want to fall behind.

The challenge for the Flyers is having far more games than anyone else down the stretch. A loss to Boston tonight doesn't help...and then have two trips up to Canada in one week.

It should be a fun two weeks.

The NHL wants to ban this?

YouTube - Canucks vs. Blackhawks LINE BRAWL! (March 29th 2009) HQ!

Note the playing of Sunday Bloody Sunday over the PA as it's breaking up.

The fights were awesome last night! I always enjoy a good fight or two in a hockey game.

Yeah, games in hand are nice but it makes for a tired club heading into the postseason.

Wow, I'm surprised that the announcers weren't making a bigger deal of the fact that Burrows was pulling on Keith's hair the entire time.

Good thing Burrows wasn't fighting Mr. Baldy (Ben Eager), he would have had nothing to grab onto!

I just don't see how this is productive for the sport.

The five fights I saw Saturday night looked a bit contrived. I just don't get it.

Basketball can be just as physical with the speed and size that the NBA and NCAA players are, yet, you do not see random fistfights break out every game.

I love the speed and the skill of the game, as well as the physical aspect (the hitting). I just don't think you need the brutality.

From watching University games I understand why you have fighting in hockey.
There is so much more chippy stick work when there is no fighting because nobody is accountable.

That said, I'm not a fan of fighting. I don't think it should be outlawed.
I think the way to handle both issues (fighting and stickwork) is to enforce penalties harder for stuff like fights or cheap shots.
