Well, I know what I'm thankful for the weekend: the return of hockey.

I'm sure there's other, less important things too.

Television, phone, tablet, monitor, immersive theatre experience, whatever works.

Damnit, my stream keeps freezing.  Stupid NHL Network only allowing me to use the official stream on my home wifi.

Nashville has broken the tie (at some point) and takes a 3-2 lead into the 3rd period.

Drink of the Ducks/Kings Game:

Freddie Fuddpucker soda (variation of Harvey Wallbanger; tequila main difference)

Tres Generaciones plata tequila
Orange juice
Galliano (teaspoon measure carefully -- this black licorice poison will hijack a drink otherwise)
Dash salt and lime squeeze
Shaken on ice
Poured into salted-rimmed glass
Topped with Sunkist Zero Sugar soda and lime garnish

I don't expect to find a bar with a Harvey Wallbanger (or make a good one) in downtown LA for my usual traditional drink to start the hockey season. Probably going to have a tequila sunrise after eating at Wexler's deli, El Cholo or Cielito Lindo for taquitos.

Kings up 2-0 on Gabe Vilardi and Arthur Kaliyev goals.

I'm picking Gabe Vilardi to be the Kings' prospect to prosper this season, not Quentin Byfield.

Vilardi seems to get the franchise views him as lazy and is trying to amend for it, plus he's damn lucky Alex Turcotte (drafted ahead of Trevor Zegras, thanks scout guy) is farked over bad by injuries.

Byfield has all the makings of a defensive center if he ever gets confident enough to use his body on plays, but he's still a step slow on NHL offense to capitalize on chances that come to him. Great skating acceleration though.

I have Fat Tug IPA chilling in the fridge for later. And my team's game is tomorrow, so I can watch as much of tonight's broadcast as I want to!

Ready for the second period. No soda on this one.

Fourth liners of Ducks bringing them back into the game, 3-2.

LA been blowing multi-goal leads in preseason.

Tied on Ducks' power play.

Bad news though, Anaheim G John Gibson out with injury.

Maybe it's time to switch the net from Quick to Ovaltine?

More defense issue and backup Cal Petersen has played far worse, though he may be hiding injury.

Wonder if Pheonix Copley gets his return to the NHL if Petersen needs time off.

Kings up 4-3 btw. Former Maple Leafs prospect Grundstrom with another clutch goal.

Philip Danault scores, Kings up 5-3.

Kevin Fiala keeps looking good with new team, 6-3 with 6 minutes left.

Selke candidate if voters stop penciling in the usual suspects.

St. Louis' O'Reilly I think gets due.

After a lifetime of having problems eventually "go away", the people at Hockey Canada _might_ be realizing that this one won't.

How brave of her to time the announcement for the 9th inning of the Blue Jays blowing a 7-run lead to get eliminated.

At this point, I think Justin Trudeau might have the right idea of just having a new organization lead Canadian hockey because Hockey Canada just looks to be rotten to the core.

The people running Hockey Canada grew up with the "boys will be boys" mentality. This issue is certainly not unique to hockey, or Canadian hockey; it's an issue wherever young athletes are deified and learn to believe that they are untouchable because of their talent.
