For any Phoenix fans: Use of that crest is not a dig. It's a reflection of my enjoyment of the franchise history of any team not on Broadway. And I love the lines in hockey crests. (Speaking of: which Jets logo was better? The newer one always seemed a little too slick for me, though it did fix the very '70s/WHA flavor of its predecessor. But I was a fan of the local flair of the original Coyotes logo -- the new dog is so generic -- so my tastes aren't, uh, commonly shared.)

This is the game thread, same rules as yesterday's game thread. I won't be around though, so party amongst yourselves.

The more you know: Why the separation between preview post and game threads? The theory is that in-game and post-game instant reactions are more anything-goes style, so you're not expected to make as much sense or stay as on topic as in comments for a regular post. Plus, during high volume times, it's definitely helpful to have the in-game comments be their own animal.
