Preds @ Avs 12/9/14.

09 December 2014 - 12:12 AM

Well, I'm out in Colorado for fire training and part of the bucket list is to hit a game in every rink. Would be preferable if it were a Wings game, but when someone else is footing the travel bill, I can't be choosy. 


At least the Avs are playing my home state team - the Preds. 


Just picked up 4 - 8th row seats in the corner where the Preds shoot twice for $31/ticket. Face value of over $100 each..


Apparently no one wants to see the Avs/Preds on a Tuesday night.



Syracuse Crunch set indoor attendance record

This is kinda cool.

Attendance was definitely helped by the fact that Utica and Syracuse are less than an hour apart.


I am surprised they haven't bulldozed the carrier dome yet tho. (1979-80 - http://en.wikipedia....i/Carrier_Dome)



Howie's ready to go

Howard said the offseason was no different than past summers, but with a lockout-shortened season two years ago, and the Olympics in addition to conference realignment last season it made for a lot of hockey in a short span. Some much needed time off allowed for Howard to heal up in the summertime.


“This is the best I’ve felt in two to three years,” Howard said after a voluntary captain’s skate at Joe Louis Arena on Wednesday. “I’m excited to get going.”


Howard’s health is good news following a season in which he dealt with lingering knee issues that sidelined him for multiple weeks in December and again in January. Just one of the many injuries that struck the team last year.


“It’s been weird the last several years, the way we’ve been hit with the injury bug,” Howard said. “I think that’s why it’s a key to the season for all of us, especially our top guys of staying out there on the ice.”

It would have been better if he poked a lil' fun at himself and had people booing him while he was talking. ;)
