That looks like the Calgary Saddledome, where the Calgary Flames play. Cool

Usually i go to games but this season no crowd is allowed. Last year they closed the POís just before it was to start.


Hereís the home arena. Itís not that big (12044 seats). It lightís up when Frolunda are in the lead during the game so that people who couldnt get any tickets can keep track from the outside






And hereís our Captain. He did a couple of years in Dallas.
Anyone able to spot who his twin brother is?

Yes, in some ways it reminds a bit of Flames arena.
And, the Captainís name is Joel, Henrik Lundqvist twin brother.

Itís hard not to love what Kevin Lankinen is doing in the net for the Blackhawks.

And also - Florida keeping up even after having so many key players out of the lineup.

Part from Tampa, Vegas, Colorado and possibly Toronto this year is full of surprises.

Colorado - how about Grubauer in nets? It was a two man Vezina race between Fleury and Vasilevskiy and now Brubauer is all lone #1 in wins, GAA, and shutouts. Both Tampa Bay and Colorado have 50 points too.

Buffalo wins! Breaks 18 game winless streak.

I fully agree!
Wonder if the Avs will go for one additional goalie since both of them has a tendency to get injured.
I saw that they got Jonas from the Sabres but i really don see him as a possible third starter.

What headlines are grabbing you this week?

McDavid is amazing. I hope Edmonton makes the playoffs just so we see McDavid on the big stage.

I never thought i would say this but iíll keep watching Panthers games. I think they play really smart and fun to watch hockey this year.

Also possible trades. So many dimensions to keep in mind with not only low caphit but also the expansion draft.

Yea, Florida has 56 points, 1 point behind Toronto and Carolina for the overall points lead.

Marchand had another shorthanded goal last night. That's a couple over his last 3-4 games and he leads the league with 5 shorthanded points (3g 2a).

Still waiting for the Taylor Hall trade.

Yes, theíve played great so far and so has The Canes. Cant figure out how good Toronto really are. I would like to see them play against teams like Bruins, Bolts or maybe Islanders.

Who do you think would rolle the dice on Hall?
Im hoping to see Getzlaf as a third center in Colorado.
And i think Jarnkrok could be a good match in a second or third line in Pittsburg.

That's what I heard on talk radio yesterday - it's difficult to judge how good Toronto is because they're playing in what is considered a weak division. I mean Edmonton won all 9 games this season against Ottawa! That's 18 points for them. Edmonton and Toronto have look great but they've beat up on poor teams whereas Boston/Pittsburgh/Washington/Islanders have had to play each other.

I don't know who will pick up Hall. I read that the Islanders, Bruins, and Panthers might be interested if the Sabres pick up some of his remaining salary (1 year contract). He's a great player but never got much support from his team.

Fleury is now #4 on career wins list! Exciting. He's just 4 wins from tying #3 (Luongo). Happy for him. One of the nicer guys in the NHL.

What's peaking your interest in the NHL these days?

Hey Larry, can't wait. The Rangers are putting the pressure on the Bruins and the Flyers have dropped back.

Congrats to Patrick Marleau for tying Gordie Howe's NHL record for games played at 1,767! Going for the record in Vegas tomorrow.

Marleau also has played in 897 consecutive games, 4th most all time. If he plays next season he could set the record. Phil Kessel is only 9 games back of Marleau and Keith Yandle is 13 games up.

Kudos to Marleau!! I never thought anyone would break Gordie's record.

Those young players on the Rangers are starting to show what they're capable of now that they've got a little more experience under their belts. They're gonna be a spoiler down the stretch, and might sneak into a playoff spot if one of the Caps, Pens, Isles or Bruins hits a rough patch. I'm glad the Pens have no more games left with them!

Hey Cat, I just checked the schedule. The Bruins have 14 games left, 5 against Buffalo and 2 against the Rangers. Hopefully the Bruins play those Sabres games with the same intensity as all their other games so they can move up the standings.
