(NHL)   Huh, it's one of those Mondays with hockey all the way through to 10 pm ET. A day full of hockey needs a thread for confused Farkers to wander into & talk about this rare thing. So here we are   (nhl.com) divider line

"Oh shiat, thar be games on right now? To The Googles to find out what be playing!"

As I'm looking at the times I only then realized that I could have just clicked on the link. Christ.

At 4pm ET, it's the Toilet Bowl: Montreal at Arizona.

Appropriately, no one will watch it in the US has it's an ESPN+ exclusive and they have their worst PxP person on the call.

Oh sure, my Leafs are in the only postponed game. Go hockey, I guess.

This may be an opportune time to conduct a test for my dad on my TV, seeing how well hockey actually looks on a 4k screen.

Oof, didn't realize Peter McNab had cancer.  F*** cancer; get better, dude.

Working from home, hockey has been on the tv since noon.
This calls for an early cocktail.

The ESPN+ exclusive games are utter crap.  The only reason I still pay for cable is for my local sports teams (Steelers and Penguins).  For them to black-out the local broadcasts and force us to pay to stream them is Bill Wirtz level of stupidity.  I get them having "national games" for things like ESPN and TNT, but to have *ZERO* options for the TV viewers in the local markets is asinine.

It's driven me back to using pirate streams... and if I can do that for a few games, I might as well do it for all games and cut the cord for good.

Between shoveling out the driveway a few times, I've caught a bit of the Wings/Sabres game. I was half expecting it to be postponed.

Too much farking snow.

I read somewhere that the Blues are retiring Pronger's number tonight.

No word on whether or not they'll also be retiring the flowchart.

We've got legal/legitimate ways of watching most games.  Much of the time though I just find it easier to hoist the Jolly Roger & grab the home/away stream that I'd rather watch rather than fussing around with the more approved methods of watching a game.  It's crazy, I don't mind spending some money to watch various games (it is a business after all & they are providing a service/entertainment for me), but when it's easier & a better experience to go around them ... well...

All day hockey thanks to Dr. King.  Dude loved hockey.  He just didn't have the time to talk about it

Really?

I started watching when it was 1-0 Buffalo, then briefly 2-0 before being sent back to 1-0.  Then at the 2nd intermission I decided that the Avs/Wild game might be better/more interesting.  Missed a good 3rd comeback & OT, ah well.

Somewhere around here (it may have migrated with one of the kids when they moved out) I've got a jersey of his from when he was with the Cincinnati Swords waaaaaay back when.

F*CK cancer indeed

Fiala with the purty Wild goal.  2-1 Avs.

Given that eastern Ontario is currently a 50cm blanket of snow, odds are it was getting canned anyway.

Update from the Toilet Bowl: Coyotes up 1-0 about 6 minutes in. Unlike most of their games, the Coyotes are spending a ton of time in the offensive zone early.

im from an very temperate climate where winter daytime temperatures rarely stay below freezing.
there are hockey teams based in such climates but i can only guess that this is to service transplants form colder places and that there must be enough transplants to form a market. otherwise why the hell would florida have hockey teams?

anyway when ive tried to watch hockey i get (confused dog look). more for everyone else!

I am the lead.

Toronto has close to that and a couple of highways closed with the others all being a mess. I think this postponement is to do with the border, and if any of the Devils were to pre-game test positive not be able to get back into the States for a week.

The Coyotes are turning pucks over in their own end a bit too often. Almost as if it's intentional. Jonathan Drouin sets up Rem Pitlick for his first in a Canadiens uniform, and the Canadiens trail 2-1, cutting their lead in the Disaster Bowl in half.

Watch hockey with someone who understands the game, ask as many questions as you wish. Go to a game, even an AHL game, sit up high so you can see how the players are moving, you can get a handle on some of the typical plays in a game that way.

F*ck off Fark for thinking my other pictures were spam (& wiping out my long post...)

Anyway, Meyer got two quick goals (giving him a first period hatty) making the double dreadnought (four goals on eight shots...ahem) & then Kopitar got one back so 4-1 heading into intermission

_/& f*ck Fark for changing the headline

Meier has 4 goals now, Kings are getting their asses kicked.

I'm having a tough enough time remembering what day it is, what with storms and power outages and hybrid work schedules.

I could have sworn it was Monday, but there's an active hockey thread. Did I blackout and lose two days?

Googling things was so much easier a couple of decades ago. Case in point: an entertaining short film from 2003, the title of which I wouldn't want to add to my search history - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0425013/
