NIce! Back on top of the league standings too.

Imagine if they won the Cup and President's Trophy in the first year!

That would be mental. I saw a story on TSN a little while ago about how popular the team has been. Merchandise, attendance, media coverage and whatnot, so I looked it up and their attendance is at currently sitting at 102.6% of capacity sold for the season, selling standing room seats for most games. Pretty impressive. They're already increasing the cost of tickets next season.

Well, they need to keep doing well in order to keep that momentum!



Fucking hell, Detroit losing the game in the last half-minute.



Golden Knights got that expansion points record last night.

Mike Smith on injury reserve...

Bye bye playoffs.



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

All Vegas had to do was score in overtime, and they would have had 42 wins and thus a definite winning record for the season.



Flames give up 5 straight. So there goes those two games in a row we won...

Well, Boston vs. Pittsburgh has been pretty high scoring!

Even without Fleury they get into situations like this.

The Winnipeg v Nashville game from the other night was crazy. First game I've had on in a few weeks. Such a colossal meltdown by the Jets. More on topic: Boston have Rick Nash now. He's not in his prime anymore, but he's a very good pickup. Have the Edmonton Nashville game on right now while playing Sky Force Anniversary.
