It's the following seven days, which might be measured from Sunday to Saturday, or Monday to Sunday, but that's not important right now.

The week before the momentous event... so you'll need to make sure to stop by the Wed Night Hockey ThreadTM on Feb 2nd*.

And now for something more related to tonight.  After doing a lot of laundry I discovered that all my usual Ducks jerseys were now hanging up to dry (there's a few old school Mighty Ducks jerseys up in the closet but those are all the way upstairs).  Thankfully, near my chair/within arms reach (I needed 'something' to wear as it's getting a bit chilly in the house (did the filter ever get fixed to ignore that?)) was a Red Wings replica jersey of/from 1951ish (there's a patch commemorating the 250th anniversary of Detroit's founding on it).  And logic dictates that wearing a Red Wings jersey is perfectly acceptable substitute when one's team is playing Colorado.

_/fwiw HockeyDB says that nobody actually wore the jersey's #21 during that season, but in 1952 Clare Raglan did
_/_/I suppose that's the chances one takes when buying a cheap replica (but this one is an actual wool (blend) sweater so it's pretty cool)

In case you missed it, the NHL has updated the schedule to fill in what was to be the Olympic break. Some games were moved around to fill the space but most of the games are Covid make up games.

Hischier nets a PPG, Devils up 1-o on the Coyotes early

Couple of wacky trading home game pairs in the mix. Leafs on Long Island Saturday is the first one I noticed. Too bad they couldn't work out the New Jersey home games flip a couple of nights ago as long as they are dealing with the greater NYC area teams this week.

Yeah, there's some weird quirks in there. Some teams are going to be really busy during those two weeks, while others won't be. But that's pretty much all due to Covid issues.

Leafgoal!

It was a farking boys club move and too many media heads are low key excusing it because he used to interview Gretzky and Messier.  And by the way, both of those guys have dressed down reporters for less.

Good start for the Leafs.
1-0

wow. that looked way too easy. other than his Mikheyev's own skate in the way.... 1-0 Buds.

Marner makes it 2 while I'm looking up how to spell Mikheyev.

3 on 11 shots is... not great.

hell the 1 on 7 the other way isn't either, but it's not 3 on 11.

Across the Hudson in Newark, the Coyotes have scored 2 to go 2-1 on the Devils
 
2022-01-19 8:24:07 PM  
First period analysis from the cheap seats:

For the first 5 minutes, the Leafs dominated, scored two quick goals, did not allow the Rangers to possess the puck for very long in their zone.

Fairly even for the next few minutes, a few chances for each side. Then, one missed defensive assignment gave New York a scoring chance which was converted.

From then until the end of the period, Leafs were back in control and got their dreaded lead back.

Yes, let's see if they can hang on and add to it.

So Marner broke his power play goal drought?  Cool.  Although his offensive role is more that of a facilitator than a shooter, so I'm not sure how significant that actually is.
 
2022-01-19 8:29:19 PM  
One of the Sportsnet fun facts was that the Rangers have only given up 22 goals in the 1st periods this season. 39 games in, that's just a tickle more than a half goal per 1st period per game. (0.564) That stat took a bit of hit in this 40th game. (0.625)

He was 100 games w/o a pp goal... for what he makes that can't help but be a big deal.

Bis on the receiving end of the jokes again.
Said he shaved for Willie O'Ree.
Anson called him out and said he shaved because Gretzky is there.

Marner has always seemed to me to be a pass-first player. And on this team, with all the big snipers, it works a lot of the time. However, when he starts to shoot rather than look for the perfect pass (like in the last couple of games), opponents will be less likely to ignore him, which will open up opportunities for others.

Both could be true
