Puck Drop 8:30 ET Sportsnet Ontario
This is going to be short and sweet: it's Friday, PPP doesn't really blog anymore and I'm about to head out of town. The Chicago Blackhawks are a fantastically talented team with a rich history of success that we should aspire to. Personally I feel very lucky that we'll be afforded the opportunity to see Toews, Kane, Byfuglien, that other guy who made the team based on the salary cap, Cristobal Huet and Brian Campbell who earns more money per year than the soup company of the same name.
The good news is, before you call what remaining friends you have left to cancel plans for your Friday night D&D game or whatever you do tonight, Vesa Toskala gets the start. I'll be going out to dinner and checking my cell phone to tell people at the table how stupid Vesa Toskala and his stupid dumb head is.
Go Leafs go in theory. Don't forget your SPG Picks and keep in mind you can't pick Blackhawks players. When this turns into a gong show feel free to head over to Second City Hockey to curse at people.
