There are 4 games tomorrow night
• The Montreal Canadiens vs the Toronto Maple Leafs
• The Philadelphia Flyers vs the Boston Bruins
• The Vancouver Canucks vs the Calgary Flames
• And finally the San Jose Sharks vs the reigning Stanley Cup Champions the Los Angeles Kings
I few quick things to remember:
There are 82 games a season. A team gets 2 points for a win in regulation and the losing team gets none. If a game goes in overtime the winning team still gets 2 points and losing team gets 1.
Let's talk about goalies for a minute. It is going to be strange for some New Jersey Devils fans this season. After 21 years watching Martin Brodeur help the team with 3 Stanley Cups, surpass Patrick Roy for all time wins in regulation and be awarded 4 Veniza Trophies, Cory Schneider will the official #1 net minder for the team.
"It's Miller Time" has officially moved coasts. The former Buffalo Sabres goalie and brief St. Louis #1 (19 games last season after he was traded) Ryan Miller couldn't have picked a better time to join the Vancouver Canucks during their "rebuild phase". Personally I can't wait to see what Miller does between the pipes with the west coast breeze blowing through his hair.
Roberto Luongo will be starting his 1st full season with the Florida Panthers. After spending 8 years with the Vancouver Canucks Lou will be joining his old team, the team the originally dealt him to Vancovuer.
The Los Angeles can be relied on for a familiar face stopping shots for their team. Jonathan Quick will be back. Quick has helped the Kings win 2 Stanley Cups in 3 years! The team joined the league in 1967 and after a 45 year dry spell the picked up Cups in the 2012 and 2014 seasons!
Teams to have the same goalie return:
• Henrik Lundqvist is between the pipes for the New York Rangers
• Antti Niemi will stop shots for the San Jose Sharks
• James Reimer laces up for the Toronto Maple Leafs
• Canadian Cutie Carey Price suits up for the Montreal Canadiens
Those are just a few of the big names returning to their beloved hockey teams.
That is it for now Hockey Fans, over and out.
