8 hockey games? In one night? Puck Dumps will be harder than I thought
The Top Line
With so many games, there isn't just one story line that the masses are following. We get two lines!
The Florida Panthers and Tim Thomas had a good debut and may have people talking this season. Wait, the Florida Panthers are being covered by multiple outlets? ESPN, Sports Illustrated, The Local Take
Boston 3, Tampa Bay 1 - The Cup winning Blackhawks were on national television on opening night. The Bruins quietly start at the same time as almost everyone else. Losers.
Pittsburgh 3, New Jersey 0 - Apparently, Corey Schneider won't be contributing on offense.
Washington 5, Calgary 4 (SO) - The Caps defense/goaltending is going to be a wacky adventure this year. 10 goals in two games. Also, shootouts are stupid.
Los Angeles 3, Minnesota 2 (SO) - In a fact I refuse to accept, Matt Cooke scored the first Wild goal of the year. They deserved to lose this game. Also, shootouts are stupid.
Florida 4, Dallas 2 - Here's how you sell out an arena for a Panthers-Stars game: make the game the season opener.
St. Louis 4, Nashville 2 - There are actually people think that the Blues will win the Stanley Cup this year. They are undefeated so far.
Phoenix 4, New York Rangers 1 - Done in by Radim Vrbata. I actually know someone who was at this game. Weird stuff, man.
San Jose 4, Vancouver 1 - A haunted house with Brent Burns wielding a chainsaw and the Sedins just... there.
