Way to go Zids. Here's to hoping Detroit makes the SCF this season.

TG is with the Bergen Record.

 

Fact is SL is getting worse every year and I think they were recently threatened with closure by their parent company or at least massive layoffs last year or the year before.  Things are getting desperate over there.

 

They revamped the format of that paper about a year or 2 ago after they were bought out, and it's nothing but a giant waste now.  The evening papers they give out at the WTC Path Station during the evening commute are more informative. 

 

You can read the entire paper in about 10 minutes, and most of their stories come from the AP wire.  The Sports section, which used to be pretty good, is just a joke.  The "good, bad, ugly" format of the beat writer stories from game days are horrible.  I would be surprised if the SL last more than 3 more years at this rate.   If it wasn't for the Governor giving them constant fodder, they would have folded already.

There is more excitement in this 2:30 of hockey between the Wild and Senators than there has been in this entire season of Devils hockey.

 

Yet, like the Devils, nobody could find a way to score.

Gelinas had one of his strongest games in a while.
I drove in the ice storm from Ocean County, missed both goals but saw thw win haha. Parkway and Turnpike was AWFUL. It filled up by the 2nd, not a terrible crowd given the weather and the atmosphere was actually fun.

 

I agree about Gelinas.  He made some nice plays defensively last night.  Larsson continues to impress.  And Cory was Cory (a/k/a great).  I would love to see how far he could take this team on his back through the playoffs, but it looks like we are going to have to wait a while to find out.

 

It took me over 90 minutes to drive the 13 miles to the Rock last night.  Unbelievable traffic with accidents all over the road.  I thought about turning around numerous times during the trip, but ultimately made towards the end of the first.  I was surprised as well by the number of people in the crowd.  If this game was at the Meadowlands, there would have been 1200 people there.
