The fun couldn’t last forever.

They had to lay an egg sooner or later, right? Last night’s game was regrettable, but it’s over now, so we can stop thinking about the Devils scoring shorthanded on a 5-on-3 and laughing to keep the tears away. Instead, we can turn our attention to Saturday vs. the Habs (will Seldo finally get to put up his Leafs flag? Will this be the game?).

Seriously, stop thinking about that 5-on-3 shortie. It’s simply not good for your health to dwell on things like that. I recommend meditation, or wine, or throwing heavy objects.

Team USA Surprises Snider Hockey!

Members of the U.S. Women's National Hockey Team had a special surprise in store for a group of Snider Hockey female students at the Laura Sims Skatehouse tonight! Our students thought they were recording a good luck video for Team USA as they embark on “The Time is Now” tour to prepare for the 2018 Olympic Games, but Team USA players were watching live via Facetime on Coach Casey's cell phone the whole time! Not only was Team USA listening to the good luck messages, but they invited our students to join them in Boston, MA on October 25th as special guests when they take on Team Canada! A big thank you goes out to Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando, as well as everyone else on Team USA for giving our Snider Hockey students this amazing opportunity!
