^The Kings played Montreal for the Cup in 1993.

Thanks to some little baseball team, I have been neglecting my poor Wings, again, this year.

I knew it was within a year of me moving here. It was the same month that our washing machine decided to leak or overflow. I remember mopping that up during one of the games, LOL (it wasn't funny though!).

Free hockey tickets

A friend used to have season tickets (many years ago) and I went to a lot of games. I saw Gretzky (as an Oiler) many times

Game ends in a 1-1 tie. We go to overtime. Within about 10 seconds, the Minnesota Wild just happen to have a puck roll into the net

Looks like I'll be going to see the Habs vs Leafs game next Sat. in Montreal! The Bell Centre ain't no Forum but it should be a blast all the same!

Okay, now I'm green with envy! You saw Wayne as an Oiler? Please tell me you remember watching him! Was he amazing, or was he just another player out there? I've often heard that the amazing thing about him was it never looked like he was really doing anything. Some say his molecules just sort of vibrated at exactly the same speed as a hockey game....and he would disappear. You wouldn't even notice him. Until he had the puck on a 2 on 1 or a 3 on 2....or behind the net....and by then it was all too late. Back to center ice. He would do this once, twice, three times a game -- consistenly. And quietly (or not so quietly, as history will tell you) amassed twice the points as everyone else. It just seemed all too easy.

I think Gretzky must be an alien.

So I saw the Penguins play the Islanders tonight, and Sidney Crosby is like ridiculously good. Like, WOW HOLY SHIT DID YOU SEE THAT good. And he didn't even score.

Por que?!

RE: The Wild.... I can't believe it. They switched places with the Canucks. Now it's Vancouver who plays boring trap hockey, while the Wild are running and gunning. Who would have thought? Gotta admit it, I miss Bertuzzi. And Jovo.

I like Luongo, though.

Maybe he actually is the Next One this time. I think he'll be an amazing player.... but he's already 19 and he still hasn't won an MVP! Gretz already had two by that age! I believe he was 20 when he scored 92 goals and 212 points.

Crosby will be his own player. A great player, I'm sure.

Well, I think if Crosby continues to dive everytime someone comes near him, MVP and title, not to mention respect. might be harder to come by. He was diving like a fish on a ships deck, and the refs kept calling penalties which really didn't need to be called. Trent Hunter (I think) got so fed up with it he just knocked him down. And I think it was justified. "If you're gonna fall, I'll give you a reason to."

Watching the Canucks game tonight made me realize just how far the Sedin twins have come. When they first started with Vancouver, they were the butt of all jokes ("Sedin Sisters," etc), but watching them tonight was awe inspiring. On the 4 on 4 and 3 on 3 they just dominated. Magical, magical stuff. It was like the puck had eyes. Twisting and turning away, toward each other, dizzying the opponets. The puck dropping through their legs, to open spaces where a Sedin would be just in time to retrieve it....great stuff. It was also a great game. The Canucks were down 2-0 in the 3rd period, and Naslund ended up tying the game on a slapshot (the first one I think I've ever seen him take) with seconds left in the game.... and then, in overtime, he dishes off to Salo with time running out, and Salo just holds it, holds it........and holds it, and finally lets go a perfect wrist shot with less than a second left! That had to be the most dramatic early season win I've ever seen!

^ Yep, it was a fantastic game! Very impressive - the best I've seen the Canucks perform so far this year.

Naslund's slap shot was incredible! Like you said, he rarely will make that kind of shot. It's the first one I can remember seeing from him as well.

Taylor Pyatt was also very impressive - his third period goal was a beauty. I'd never heard of him before this season, but it looks like he's been a good addition to the team so far.

Watching Salo get the winning goal with seven tenths of a second remaining in OT was like watching a playoff game! I was at the edge of my seat, and all of us screamed like crazy once the puck got in the net. Fantastic hockey!
