Some sort of sporting event will be played at the Verizon Center tonight. Sources say the sporting event will be a game called hockey. Details are scarce at this time, but hockey is reportedly a game that was popular among humans in Washington DC prior to the great blizzard of 2016. We couldn’t get confirmation, but social media says this game is played on ice and often dominated by a team from DC that wears red.
If we’ve piqued your interest with this whole “hockey” thing, turn your television dial to the NBC Sports Network at 8 PM to see what it’s all about.

Per Katie Brown, who just so happens to write for NHL.com. Carlson might play. Here’s how the lines looked at the morning skate:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie
Burakovsky – Kuznetsov – Williams
Chimera – Johansson – Wilson
Laich – Richards – Latta
Alzner – Niskanen
Schmidt – Carlson
Orlov – Chorney
The Flyers are an okay team. They are not a great team. They will probably miss the playoffs and certainly aren’t considered a legitimate contender. This is partially because the previous regime in Philly left a mess of a cap situation for Ron Hextall to sort out.
But Hextall has done a great job sorting out the mess so far. There are still bad deals on the books and major holes on the roster, but this team is positioning itself for a major reload over the next few seasons. Don’t expect them to be mediocre for too long. They are headed in the right direction.
How’d you spend your blizzard? I shoveled, played card games, went for walks around my hood, visited a local watering hole, and watched the first five episodes of Making a Murderer.
