The DU Pioneers split last weekend with the CC Tigers. This weekend we play North Dakota. Should be a fun game.
My 2 year old is starting to get into the game. He can point out the goalie and the puck. He says, "The goalie stoppa the puck!" LOL He also yells Go DU. Too cute.

I don't have a specific date yet, but I'm sort of testing the waters here... anyone interested?
I'll post more specific details when I have them, if there's any interest.

Not the best Isles/Ranger game I've ever seen but certainly not the worst. Lundqvist had some nice saves, there was some decent end to end for a bit, and I will admit to Avery doing his job... he had me pretty riled up. He seriously stepped right in to fill that yammering, in-your-face role - reminds me of Kasper in his prime in that respect.
Anyway, I'll take the 3-0 so far against the Rangers this season. There's a whole lot of hockey left (and 4 more games vs the Rangers). I'll enjoy this (and the 12 pts in the hummer metro ice challenge) while it lasts.

The Rangers are playing a good game right now. I hope we can keep it up. It's really nice to be on the winning side after so many years playing horribly.
Pennsylvania fell to the Rangers. The Flyers Thursday and the Penguins tonight. WOOHOO!

I just had the pleasure of watching Al Arbour win his 740th game as an NHL coach - it was also his 1500th NHL game. All I can say is WOW - what an emotional night! I can't even imagine BEING there - although having been thru my fair share Stanley Cup games in that very building, I can guestimate the intensity and noise levels. I may live 700 miles away now, but my heart will always be in Nassau County for hockey season ;-)
I'm a lifelong Islander fan, and there have certainly been highs and lows. Tonight was an absolute high - and I couldn't be happier for Mr. Arbour. (as an aside, I have met the man several times through the years. Despite his very ind and warm suggestions to just call him Al, the massive respect and admiration I have for this incredible coach will not allow me to call him anything BUT Mr, Arbour.
Now, off to see what I can find out about Ricky's eye injury... (fingers crossed for good news)
