National Hockey League
Glad the Pens didn't trade Fluery! Go Pens, back to back?!?!?
Should be a fun last little time before play-offs. Hoping the Hawks have a good run in them. Hope the wild can step it up-bad as of late. Fun to watch this time of year. Many great players in the league right now.
The 25 year playoff streak for the Red Wings is over. The coolest fact of the streak to me is that they did it with only one top 10 draft pick all those years-#10 pick in 1991.
All five teams coming off their bye week lost yesterday. So far, only three out of 19 have won their games and they have been outscored 67 to 37.
I had known that both teams were on a roll but that little factoid is pretty interesting.
The game tonight between the Blue Jackets and the Wild will be the first game featuring two teams with winning streaks of at least 12 games. This has actually never happened in any of the big 4 professional sports. I got to watch Columbus back in early November against the Blues and at the time I didn't think they were capable of winning 4 in a row let alone 14.
On my way to the Alumni game with the Blues/Hawks. I was surprised at hard of a ticket it was to get. The Blues only gave me 2 much to the dismay of the local Hawk fans. I've seen enough Blues/Hawks games so todays game is more interesting to me...looking forward to seeing Gretzky, Hall, and Brodeur play.
Bummed about Sharks here. Joe Pavelski has a charity golf outing in a couple weeks in central Wisconsin. Pretty sure the Cup would have made an appearance. Pens were faster and just better though.
Agreed as a pens fan, finally a fourth cup......now come on Packers, bowl #5!!!
