So, hockey wasn't on last night. Or at lease the NHL wasn't on last night. And we had no idea what to do with ourselves. Until we found out that the Memorial Cup was (finally!) being televised on NHL Network.
Thank Gary because we were definitely going through the throes of despair and almost hitting our low points.
Also, we love watching the Memorial Cup. Definitely the highlight of our puny existence.
News & Notes:
- Last night, the Edmonton Oil Kings won 4-3 in Game One against the Shawinigan Cataractes. Henrik Samuelsson had the game-winner with under ten minutes left in the third period.
Curtis has us rooting for the Oil Kings to win and she is a great enabler/pusher.
- Brandon Dubinsky is back on the ice for the Rangers but no timetable has been set for his return yet. He has been out since Game Seven against the Senators.
- One of the keys to the Kings success is the play of both Dwight King and Jordan Nolan. They've been scoring and hitting and just being everything the Kings need night in and night out. It also helps that they're BFFs.
- The Avalanche have signed Milan Hejduk to a one-year contract extension.
- World Championships semi-finals have been set with Russia facing off against Finland and Slovakia facing Czech Republic.
- Evgeni Malkin had a hat trick, leading the Russians to a 6-2 win over the defending Worlds champions, Finland.
- We forgot to post this the other day with the Devils/Rangers mini-recap but here it is. We love Travis Zajac just cracking up at the penalty box door sticking.
It is pretty funny.
