lol I agree it is a weird time to have a game. Thank god I have off today! I hope we dont beat up DP to bad. I hate the Islanders but DP is American and I will always root for our players regardless of what team they are on. I think thats why I love Stepan so much.

not sure who is watching pregame but there is some interesting stuff happening in warmups. Konopka is into it with Dubi, Avery, Boyle. My question is wehre the hell is Boogard!!!! We sign this guy to a big contract and he is nowwhere!

Ugggh bad way to loose a game, thought the Cally pen was harsh & Staal's was a silly one to give up :(

Loved the early checks from Boog & Avery was playing well, didnt see much of Avs in the 3rd though.

Next up the Leafs, Boogs V Orr, Avery V Dion, gonna be a tough game!
