NHL 2019-20

Hockey is back!

Third year in a row that the Caps will be present for the banner raising (only once in their own barn, unfortunately).

Vegas looks to be dangerous this year, and Colorado will be a lot of fun to watch. Will eb interesting to see if the Blues come back this year as the post-January 1 worst-to-first team, or if the hangover gets them. Is Binnington the real deal?

Florida will be much improved in the East. Tampa will still be dangerous (in the regular season). Will Toronto ever beat Boston?

Ovi will hit 700 career goals before the end of the year (still a long way to go to catch Gretzky).

Should be a great season. Drop the puck already.

LET'S GO CAPS!

Just got back from the Jerks win over Montreal in the shootout. First time I've ever seen them win a home opener in person. Been a long time coming.

Exciting game, up 2-0 over the Habs, then they go up 3-2 then we tie it in the 3rd and win in a shootout. And the Storm Surge is back! It was a playoff atmosphere tonight, the whole city is engaged again.

Going to rock my Canes sweater when I head to the OBX tomorrow because every other kiteboarder I see will be from Quebec." Ole' Ole' Ole! Ole! Ole!"

Another year of high expectations in Nashville. Will they choke in the playoffs again? Duchene had 3 assists in his debut last night, a pretty good start wearing Gold.

So, will Brind'amour drop the gloves tomorrow, or is he all talk?

I expect you guys will take runs all night at Fogele. Just thank God we don't have Ferland on the team anymore. I expect Wilson to fight McGinn at some point.

Welcome to Raleigh, Jake Gardiner. Goodbye, Caps.

Ugh.
Hate to lose to a bag of dicks, but 5 out of 6 is not a bad start.
Still, being "fatigued" halfway through the second period of a back-to-back is inexcusable in the third game of the season. Pathetic effort.

I mean, the fatigue thing with the Caps is real. Everybody knew the Canes would win going into 2 OT last year. We're a young team. At least you guys finally got your cup, which I was actually glad to see, after so many years of playoff choking which was terrible to witness with a guy like Ovy on your team.

But now welcome to the slide into the depths of the Metro. The Pens will beat you to the bottom, though.

Caps are far from done. Have some good young kids.
But they need to figure out the Canes, who definitely have a good system going.

Pens, on the other hand, are definitely on the downslope.

Canes just embarrassed Bobvosky and a supposedly stellar Panthers squad 6-3. 4-0 for the leagues best record and our best start ever

This was a good year to decide to get season tix!

I'm...20 minutes from PNC? Maybe closer to 40 with traffic. I'll likely get some tix to some games this year.

Well like I said I have season tix to half the games, and I can't drag my wife to all of them, so if there is a weeknight game you want to go to, PM me.

Will do, thanks!

The Canes have always had a solid fan base and support, but the atmosphere surrounding the team this year is so much better since mid-season last year.

Best record in the league right now.

3 straight comebacks, 3 straight OT wins to start the season is a nice start.

This ridiculous practice of waiting until after a goal is scored to call for a review of off sides is fucking terrible.

Canes 5-2 over Isles. Best start in franchise history. Best record in NHL.
