October 24 at Lowell. Nov. 9 at Philadelphia. March 21 at Worcester. Last night against the Penguins. And today against Hartford. Each game, a 2-0 lead. And each game, a loss. They got two point out of those five games, an overtime loss when Ryan Potulny needed overtime to complete his four-minute hat trick, and Read More
…and Hartford has ‘em right where they want ‘em?
That was the header idea after one period. It meant something entirely different then. It’s funny, isn’t it?

Hey, it’s almost that time of year again. Starting the call for votes a little early: Let’s once again pick the winners of the Fake Team Awards. The two fake trophies are for Fan Favorite (use whatever criteria you’d like, ’cause it’s your favorite, after all) and Seventh Player (performance beyond expectations, on which I Read More
