WAKE UP, WE’RE BACK!
So, there’s, like, a hockey game tonight in Montreal between two teams who are near the top of the standings in the best league on the planet Earth. One team will wear a dark sweater, the other a light sweater. They’ll skate up and down the ice trying to put the black disc thing into the net thing. Whoever does this more often over at least 60 minutes of hockeying with be considered the better hockeyers for that night and be rewarded with two points in the standings.
Some players will do things well and people will be pleased. Some players will do things badly and people will be outraged in a disproportionate manner, probably in 140 characters or less.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
Per Isabelle, no changes.
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie
Johansson – Kuznetsov – Williams
Chimera – Beagle – Burakovsky
Laich – Latta – Wilson
Schmidt – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Orlov – Chorney
