I don't think so. My father is from there and he's a big sports fan, but hockey was never big. I don't remember anyone up there really talking about it when I would go up there. I think Boston is more of a Baseball and sometime Basketball town.

Yeah, for sure.

The Wings had better step it up tonight. I don't want to see any more leads blown in the third period.

Hockey has never been the #1 sport here, although as April mentioned, the years of the Big Bad Bruins in the 70's, led by Orr, were a high point for them.

The Red Sox are always the #1 team around here, although the Patriots have been kind of #1A this decade, sort of like the Celtics used to be.

It may not be the #1 sport in Boston, but there is a group of diehard, rabid Bruin fans that exist. Due to the ownership not spending money, spending money unwisely, and just being douchebags in general the casual fans have really been turned off. I think that hockey could definitely make a comeback, but a lot of things need to change.

In Sid's defense, he did play the playoffs and the remainder of the season with a broken foot.

He's also 20 years old....give him a few years. He's incredible to watch. And Ovechkin too - that guy is awesome.

If the Penguins don't become a dynasty that's just a damn shame.

But, still in first place.

Last night's Wings game made me wonder why I took such a long break from hockey. Of course it also threatened to piss me off when Edmonton scored and I thought it was going to be a repeat of Saturday, but still.

I was at the Red Wings and Carolina Stanley cup game a few years ago in Detroit... Great game, but got an octopus thrown at my head, when it was suppose to go over the glass

What games are on tonight?

The Leafs sell out every game, right? They have to be bringing in a ton of money...so why do they suck so bad? How much do they pay Sundin and Kaberle? Not that money is always going to bring a championship, but at least once since 1967 it should have worked.

I watched Ottawa play the other night - they're friggin awesome. They play like an organized group of killer bees. I was quite impressed. Then again, I mostly watch the Islanders who play like a bunch of uncoordinated angry drunks, so my baseline isn't real high. But still. Ottawa .
