Tonight there will be a moment of silence before every game played in the NHL, as there was this afternoon in Philadelphia. This is the sentiment that spoke most to me about playing or watching or loving the game, today of all days:
Loved Flames coach Glen Gulutzan's response this a.m. re: Humboldt tragedy and how he expected his team to perform: "We’re playing for the purity of the game, for the love of the game, because that’s what those kids did.”— Steve Carp (@stevecarprj) April 7, 2018
In that spirit, we recognize the pain and heartbreak of the day, but also the love of the game. And we go on and cheer for our team the way we always have.
This is it, the last day of hockey. Tomorrow we wake up and there’s no more games to watch.
Oh, wait, that’s Habs fans, not us. Forgot for a second.
This might help out the Canadiens players who are suddenly at loose ends.
Meanwhile as we wait for the decision on Tampa or Boston as the next destination for the Leafs, let’s beat the Habs!
Go Leafs Go!
Are you going to watch this game or are you cheating and watching something else?
This poll is closed
I’m watching every second of the Leafs!
I’m watching the Bruins lose to Ottawa.
I’m watching the Lightning lose to Carolina
I’m just waiting for the Josh Leivo option in the poll.
