    What the...

    Well it's the New Year, which is right about when the Pens start their resurgence. Check the standings...

    Pens 2nd place; Flyers dead last. So they basically swapped spots? I am baffled.

    8-2 in their last 10 games and #3 goal differential in the league. We're not quite at the midpoint of the season, so a lot remains to be shaken out, but this is pretty nuts.


    Also the Winter Classic was a fun watch. And thanks to that game, I also recorded the ND-Mich outdoor hockey game on the same ice, but I haven't watched it yet.

    Stadium Series has Pens-Flyers here in Philly this year, but the prices are pretty outrageous so I'll watch it from home.

    Yesterday was actually the exact midpoint of the season for most of the teams. Penguins are now one game past the halfway mark.

    I just had a look at the standings.

    Calgary is at the top of the western Conference?

    What?

    Maybe I should be watching.

    They’ve finally got good goaltending which was the big thing holding them back last year. Rittich has been maybe the second-best goalie in the league after Gibson

    Also the Pacific is maybe the weakest division overall, it’s them, Vegas, and SAN Jose and then the whole thing falls off a cliff

    That’s neat, Nashville’s Victor Arvidsson and Toronto’s Par Lindholm grew up in the same tiny (pop. 440) town in Sweden and are playing against each other as NHL players for the first time tonight

    NHL all-star jerseys this year are made from recovered and recycled ocean plastic. That's a cool gesture.

    Let’s take a look in and see how things are going in Colorado, where the Avalanche have won 2 games in the last calendar month.
    Uh, everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here, now, thank you. How are you?

    Why don't we have an "UGH" social option? I'd tap that.

    While I agree that being insensitive is an issue, so is being oversensitive.

    He could have very easily broken the other players hand, so that horseshit should be punished.

    As punishment they should remove him from the All Star game and put Morgan Rielly in instead

    Did I mention that I love seeing Crosby and Guentzel playing regular shifts on the PK (and now having two short handed goals)

    Edit: be ready to start hearing Pittsburgh media takes on why Crosby should get the selke this year. Which is actually not a bad take if he keeps playing pk minutes.

    I just want to state up front that I feel that fighting in hockey is dumb and has no place in the modern game

    that said, seeing domestic abuser Austin Watson get his face punched in two games in a row is pretty dang satisfying. Almost enough to make a guy cheer for Tom Wilson a little bit.

    you've got that backwards, going to the all star game *is* the punishment. Not going and getting a 5 day vacation away is a reward.

    Well I guess that Leafs game was the Avs one win for the next two weeks again. Getting manhandled by the worst team in the league who has nothing to play for. Sakic, Bednar, someone, has to figure this out.
