Happy Saturday to all and if you’re like me you had a difficult time dragging out of bed after the Buffalo Sabres game last night in
Anaheim. I guess the good news is they’re back in Buffalo now and will play again at a good time for all of us in the East. Has anyone had any snow as of yet? Where I am North of the boarder we have lovely little white things falling from the sky and you know what that means, pond hockey season is nearly upon us.
If you’re looking for something to distract you from last night’s brutal loss then take a moment and get caught up with all the links from the NHL world.
