Hi Im new on here, I'm from Upstate Ny and live like 10 mins from Albany were the Rats play. when I was younger I used to go there just to see people beat the tar out of each other, but have recently found a love for the game as a whole (I still love a good fight). I usually head down to catch a Devils game once a year which was against philly this year, and I watch about every game on TV.

I don't want guys to like to fight me or look forward to fighting me. I want them to be scared sh!tless in the other locker room before the game even starts" - Scott Parker

"We hit each other with a couple," he said. "But it felt good-- more the part of hitting him that him hitting me. That felt better. But just being in it. It's been a while. It's not something you get to do when you don't play in the NHL and stay out of jail. Usually, that's frowned upon in society. But it's fun to go against a tough guy just to challenge yourself."

"It was a 3-0 call," Bobby Holik said simply, referring to the score at the time. "I think it was the first time ever for the teams I've played for."

"Not for me," he said. "I always try to play well and I always prepare and practice the same way every day whether it's the off-season, training camp or the 52nd game of the season (which it is tonight). That's one thing that's beyond my control as far as three goalies, four goalies and coaching decisions on who plays and who doesn't.

"I like to think that I'm somebody that takes my job seriously and I do those things at a high level. When I do that and practice well and I put in the time and as much extra, the other stuff is beyond my control. I can sleep comfortably at night knowing that I do everything I need to do to help my teammates and to be able to play the way I'm capable of playing when given a chance."

Scoring chances against remain low. Scoring chances for have doubled. It's Sutter hockey, and it's working.

"Sure it's difficult, but you've got to make decisions and Whitey's going to go back in the lineup and someone's going to come out,"

Hey welcome to the boards. Do you still go to any of the river rats games even though they are no longer affiliated with the Devils?

I go to the Rats occasionally usually when they play Lowell, Then most of the games they play Philly because they hate each other and the games are very entertaining. Last Philly Rats game I saw at the begining of the season I saw Conboy beat the Tar out of Downie. I really don't know allot of hockey fans a few of my buddies like hockey but they all like teams I hate which include: Boston(wierd im a Sox fan) Buffalo, Pittsburgh, and the Rags. Penguins fan is the most annoying cuz He brags about Cindy then, I have to constantly remind him how Cindy is a Bitch and Ovechkin is better. But Upstate NY atleast were I live isnt a huge hockey area. Rats get No fans, The 2 colleges Union and RPI are allot bigger even though they have been sh!tty.

Specially the Sabers. I think I hate the sabers more than any non-divisional team in the league because I had to buy (actually glad I did) NHL center Ice because they broadcast the Sabers on Msg + when I live closer to Boston and NY than Buffalo. BTW what upstate school you got 2???

Syracuse.

Yeah, I hate it, when the Sabres play they take over MSG+ from the Devils. I had to buy Gamecenter on the computer, but it still doesn't broadcast any/most Devils games. I've since resorted to the really low-quality streams from other sites, because I'm not going to buy all of Center Ice. Plus, the Gamecenter feeds can get really bad playback as well. Consequently, I hate the Rangers and Sabres because their games are always on up here.

Yeah, I know Center Ice has them, but Gamecenter runs differently unfortunately. On top of that though, my school doesn't offer Center Ice, just NHL Network. Center Ice is pretty expensive though, and I don't even get that much time to sit in front of the TV. I work in a studio so it's better to have it on the computer. If only Gamecenter ran as many games as Center Ice...
