Toronto is giving Murray the start.  My guess is Keefe will rotate them for a few more games before settling on who gets the majority of starts.  Samsonov looked good but the Leafs also played a much better defensive game, which had better be the case tonight.

This should be one of the winnable games of Vancouver's 5-game road trip. *Should*.

Sens are a much better team w/o Melnyk micro-unmanaging. The Buds definitely need to play better than they did on Wednesday.

Handbags in Buffalo.
Surprised that Matthew Tkachuk is involved.  No, not really.

3-2 near the end of the 2nd in Buffalo?  Could be interesting, but I'm busy watching all the morning's rugby.

so of course, the 2nd ends 4-3 just to mock me for my hubris

Good response by the Sabres to just have a 1 goal deficit after 2.

Matt Murray pulled something at the morning skate, sounds like it will be Samsonov with the start. The Marlies play at 4 just down the road and it looks like Källgren who was only cleared to play from his injury yesterday, won't be dressed for the Marlies, so he might be backing up tonight.. Weeeeeee!

So who/what's on the schedule?  As apparently I have time to watch lots of hockey now.

After just getting back from running errands/shopping, MrsRT looked at me and said "Let's do a naked weekend*" (blinks hard) "Sure..."

20 min later her phone rings

"Don't answer that..."

She did... "Someone's sick, I need to work today...put your clothes back on..."

"Fark..."

So yeah hockey...sigh

Oh well, eight hours of OT

_/* naked weekend being defined as two days when we don't get dressed and spend at least 2/3rds of our awake time watching some sort of porn (we've been doing a Golden Age retrospective/review recently - some good ones that could/should be actual movies...and some real stinkers too)

Flyers and the Canuckleheads?  Cool, if nothing else I can mentally lust after the lovely Taryn in the pregame/between periods... shiat, she's off doing the baseball game.

Ducks nosebleeds $17.

Kings' nosebleed seats are $20s. Got 100 sections team discount offer for NYR game for $75 but spent 25 less for 200s, pretty good view still. StubHub prices are double for both.

StubHub last month showed AZ Coyotes cheapest were $90 vs Ducks and Sharks.

2022-10-15 4:20:56 PM  
That was a 'really' smart play by Hayes.  Take the puck back to your own zone to both let the extra attacker on the delayed penalty get settled 'and' burned almost a minute off their own penalty kill before starting their own power play (not that it worked out mind you, but still)

Thank you for setting something up for me because last night, the new arena for Arizona State hockey and the temporary home for the Coyotes opened up. Here's some videos to give everyone an idea of what's coming:

First, some overall atmosphere

The first goal in the new barn: Coyotes prospect and son of the face of the Coyotes for so long, Josh Doan

Another view of that

ASU defeats Cornell 2-0

I wanted to play a "Guess the Ticket Price" game here for the Coyotes games; but I can't get how I want to present it right so I'm going to skip that.
 
2022-10-15 4:37:26 PM  
Well the Flyers are living up to preseason expectations.  3 shots on goal by Vancouver, 2 goals...

Well, there's no nosebleed seats in that temporary Coyotes arena. There's only 14 rows of seats. But let's compare a row 14, end zone seat on the end where the Coyotes attack twice to a similar seat for the Colorado Avalanche. I'm going to pick a few opponents and give you the ticket prices:

NY Rangers
@ Arizona, Oct. 30 - $206
@ Colorado Dec. 9 - $239

Winnipeg
@ Arizona, Oct. 28 (home opener) - $229
@ Colorado, Oct. 19 (cheapest resale seat) - $90

Buffalo
@ Arizona, Dec. 17 - $184
@ Colorado, Dec. 15 - $91

Toronto
@ AZ, Dec. 29 - $229
@ CO, Dec. 31 - $259

If you want me to pick out some other teams, I'll do so during the Leafs-Sens and Coyotes-Bruins games.

Yeah, that is an ugly contract and Benning used it to dump four bad contracts that only had a year remaining on each.

When it was signed, it looked like it was a good idea. But since then, there's been some personal stuff that OEL hasn't gotten over I feel like; plus how he was handled at times by Coyotes coaching (most notably Rick Tocchet delaying having him become captain after Doan retired) has kind of farked him up. Ultimately, I don't think his issues are physical; but mental.

Marlies win Nick Roberson got one of the goals, Leaf Twitter is losing it's tiny hive mind about the Murray trade and his likely being on LTIR for nearly a month. Hockey Night in Canada begins it's 70th season.. Everything seems about right with the Universe at the moment. Go Leafs!!

Yeah, it was hoped that working with the Sedins would bring him around and he'd be a good veteran to anchor the defence. He was never going to be worth the contract, but he was reliable.
