The 'Canes are playing well in their first game, but Detroit's goalie is playing out of his gourd and keeping the Red Wings in a game they've got no business being in.

What is this "hockey" you speak of?  Living in Minnesota, I'm unfamiliar with it.

Well - same old 'Canes...  gave up a goal with 16 seconds to go to tie, and then lost in OT.

Detroit's just go too much talent on the ice when they put 6 skaters our there

Is this Ice hockey?

If so, the Newcastle Vipers have disbanded  :(

it's not roller hockey! ;)

There are some days when I feel like the 'Canes have disbanded- usually when they're busy tanking and giving away a lead in the 3d Period

Go Pens! Just need Fleury to bounce back from his absolute collapse in net...that's all...not a big thing, right?

I like hockey. I live in Houston. Not much chance of seeing it here unless it's minor league, but even then it's a hell of a lot of fun!

Blackhawks!!!
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

it would be nice, just once, if the Hurricanes could actually keep their top 3 lines all healthy at the same time, and hang onto Ward and Gleason at the same time.

So far so good for the Pens, and particularly for Marc-Andre Fleury.
