There’s the reasonable notion that a hockey team has a lot of injuries, but there’s also decades of evidence of teams with seemingly little talent in their lineups winning the occasional game - especially at home.
Indeed. It's a simple game. You catch the ball, you throw the ball...-- Wait ... different sport. But you catch my drift. For the love of Christmas, just win a hockey game already, boys!
Feel free to leave seasonal tidings or chat up the game in the thread. I may be in, or I may be [gasp] Christmas shopping, only to watch the game on DVR while a few hundred dollars poorer. Regardless, a happy, safe holiday to everyone. Sport is a journey best enjoyed in context.
