  1. go penguins… actually looking forward to wednesday when they play the wings again… nationally broadcast on NHL net.

  2. Anticipating a lot a regular season wins, and then the now standard meltdown by MAF in the playoffs. Having a hard time working up any enthusiasm for the upcoming season, which is extremely rare for me.

    Anyone else?

    • I’m willing to see how it goes. Give Zatkoff a chance…give him a few games to get to the NHL speed. he may just be fine.

    • Maybe it’s The Steelers Malaise that’s affecting your hockey enthusiasm!

    • I am with you.
      Really having a tough time with the enthusiasm. Good at winning one-game series in reg season. In post season 7-gamers, when coaching and strategy (and goaltending) take on a whole new level of importance, not so much.

      Once burned and all.

      Or….twice, maybe, er, well, more like 4 times burned.

      Now very shy.

  3. Harry Zolnierczyk > Tanner Glass.

  4. Good stuff from the Zatkoff.

  5. Beat Blackhawks in a shoot out again.
