I like to apologize to Devan and the whole Dubnyk family for the terrible game he is about to have. I have Minnesota goalies in the other pool. Sorry guys.

Iím here in San Jose covering the Barracuda vs Reign game. Sean Burke is here scouting for Habs. Appropriate to ask him how did Montreal do last night?

Mike Ricci is really a cool guy and has the coolest job. He basically hangs out and mentors the team. Had a few sandwiches in the press room before the game. Still looks like he can play.

Looks like Sean Burke didnt show up.

Instead of taking the first TV timeout, the Pens broadcast stuck with the game to show the tribute to Chris Kunitz. Didn't show a single commercial.

I wonder if this was a NHL.tv/Gamecentre only thing? (Since there are no commercials anyways) If so, thumbs up to NHL.tv staff for not just switching to the "Commercial in Progress" screen.

Or did the Pens or ATT Sportsnet buyout their own block of commercials to show the tribute to all viewers?

Either way, it was a really good move.

I'm more surprised by how well the Devils are doing than Vegas.

We might have a record for most overtimes in one NHL night. 4/4 to start so far.

The Oilers currently have two players with "juj" found somewhere within their names.

I had the pleasure to interview Paul Martin who was recently sent down to the AHL, which looks like he is being shopped for a trade partner..Great guy and hopefully he lands somewhere , maybe a contender.

Also interviewed John McCarthy..Captain of the Barracuda, who is going to the Olympics..He is so excited and was cool to see that in his eyes..

We were also lucky to get passes to a recent Sharks practice with full access to the dressing room..Unfortunately I couldnt attend as we were in Lake Tahoe for a hockey tournament..

I have found my true calling..

Heís fine. Unremarkable. Not Steiggy.

I was just coming here to post a thing about Carolina. I like them. Iím a fan, and Iím rooting for them to make the playoffs.

But every game of theirs I watch, the announcers talk about how theyíre the least penalized team in the nhl, like 4 or 5 straight years. And then it never fails, like infinity uncalled obvious fouls.

obv nhl is rigged for a Carolina Cup winner, big ratings.


I dont know what to tell you, they are least penalized, thats a fact.
and I dont really see them being a team that gets breaks from the refs. Maybe they do during Pens games? Ive watched most of this game, havent noticed more than 1 or 2, which every team gets nightly.
I've noticed refs have really stopped calling the slashes, like they were in Oct.

And if I may....why doesnt someone just shoot Hornqvist? He always gets a free hack or two at a goalies glove hand after the pucks in there for a few secs. Its such a crappy way to play the game.

fwiw, I kind of liked Steiggy. But I didnt listen to him too often.
I like the Canes guys, I find them 9/10 on the hockey smarts, but Id give them a 5/10 on being a little too homerish for my tastes.

To me, the Canes just seem to play similar to other teams. Make standard infractions but every time I watch they get the ďlet them playĒ refs or just donít get called. Itís weird. Not super remarkable, but odd to me.

Anyways, I like the Canes crew. Last year I tended to watch lots of opponent announcers because I was sick or Steigerwald. He turned into a whiny homer. If the Canes guys are homers, I never noticed, so it wasnít the whiny kind.
