ok, since no one has mentioned it.....

 

How did this guy break a pane of glass just by hitting it?  I referee hockey and I have parents and fans hitting the glass at times.  That glass obviously had to be already flawed in some way.

 

My guess is that he hit it with his wedding ring (I'm assuming he's married, and he hits it with a flat palm on his left hand).

Landen Ferraro had 15 goals in 70 games last year, and 15 in 35 this year. What's up with that?

 

That's called "Progression"  :lol:

 

Seriously though, the kid is starting to figure things out. Though the Griff's radio guys were mentioning that Ferraro has been notoriously streaky, so we'll see if he's just on a temporary tear or if he in general figured out how to score in the AHL.


In Topic: Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

While we lost yet again last night in a shootout, it still felt like an improvement to me. Not sure if it was because Mrazek was in between the pipes or because we technically scored more than usual/put up a better fight, but it definitely looked like a step in the right direction towards solving this problem we're having. I like that Mrazek looked like he was feeding off of each save he made, and it really did take some good goals to beat him. I also liked that Z tried to get back to his old shootout ways and pull one of the classics out of his bag, it didn't work, but to me it showed that they're actually taking this serious now and trying things that have worked in the past. Hopefully if we have to do another one of these it'll all come together and we'll finally leave with 2 points.


In Topic: Favorite arena

Been to 3 NHL barns but only seen games at 2 - The Joe (dozens of games over the years), United Center (4 or 5 games in the last 10 or so years), and the ACC (only took a tour). The Joe is the best of those, hands down.

 

Last game I saw at UC was a few years back when Toews and Kane were rookies and the bandwagon was starting to take off, they finally sold out their arena that night. The Sharks were on a winning streak, and ended up winning the game against Chicago, after Chicago's last-second tying goal went in off a guy's glove and was disallowed. Everyone in the arena was pissed, and it was CLEARLY not a good goal, but the jackasses weren't having it. My dad, best friend, and I were just sitting there laughing at them. (Found the game - http://blackhawks.nh...p?id=2007021026). Aside from that, the arena was clearly built with the Bulls in mind, and the views aren't nearly as good as they could be.
