Wasn't October a great month for hockey?

God damn it, the Wings play tonight, and we found out my dad passed away this morning (he being the huge Red Wings collector and fan), gonna make it really hard to watch the game, and to not watch the game.

I reached out to the team, see if they have like a condolences form letter they could mail off just on team letterhead.  He had season tickets via work for like 15 years, so I'm kinda hoping there's something like a letter from the organization available.

/cheers reprobates...

For those who are also baseball fans, tonight's World Series game has been postponed to tomorrow due to rain. Everything is pushed back 24 hours.

My sympathies to you and yours. Watch the game and enjoy it like your dad was there. People are never gone as long as we remember them and the things that made them special.

Thanks folks.  It sucks.  He took me to my first NHL game, at the Joe actually, before I ever saw the Flames live.  His memorabilia collection is huge and varied, and it's been wrecking me all day that he's not around to talk hockey, to complain about bad plays, and to just be a dad and a grand dude (his title to my nieces)

Yeah, when you're getting outshot 3:1, the other team is probably going to score.

Some interesting old timey hockey story and rock and roll mentions here.

Condolences, good luck with the request and remember the best of times.

/inherited some of the hats I picked up for my dad during my sports writing days -- NY Islanders, Blackhawks, Kings, Sharks and Ducks, and a few MLB/NFL hats too. Wore his 2012 Kings championship hat today in fact to the doctor and found my ankle meat biopsy was benign -- cyst/scar tissue weirdness.

A Monday night hockey thread?  What madness is this.

_/could have used it last night to laugh at the Leafs, who even with the obvious help of the officials, couldn't beat the Ducks even with a 3-1 lead in the third
_/_/I think they finally broke Dangle...

The Wings have clawed another one back, now only down 4-3.  But now they've given Buffalo a 4-on-3 power play.

Well, that got real ugly for the Wings in the 3rd.  Oh well, at least we're not the Leafs.

I got a Maple Leaf jersey that fits but lack "sad clown" makeup skills.

Kings up 5-1 as third period starts in St. Louis. Kevin Fiala finally clicking with Kings on third line with Rasmus Kupari and Carl Grundstrom, not exactly the Euros in LA folks thought he'd be producing with.
