Av's will take this imo. They have been amazing over the last few years and are only getting better each year..

Anyone not watching, or sick of the BLM infomercial that is the NBA and MLB, needs to tune in.

 

Not even 5 minute in and we have a few monster hits and even a fight. Let's go!

I fully expect the canes to crush the Rangers today.

every other game is a toss up imo

And they scored right away!

I love how they made this feel like a theatre.  The seat covers and LED screens look good.  I heard Gary Bettman say nobody has tested positive for Covid.  Great news.

Fun First period. Decent scrap and some big hits. Rangers are struggling to even get over center ice, Canes looking good. 

 

Im tempted to cancel all my plans today and just watch hockey for 13 hours straight

Fun game so far. I'm surprised by the intensity & pace they are able to keep up.

The BLM show has hit the NHL.

Weird that nothing was done for Game 1 by NBC, but Sportsnet does Game 2 and that opening was unwatchable. 

Now more in the 2nd Intermission. This keeps up and I'm done with the NHL for the year as well.

Chicago is on fire!  They had a horrible season but with 4 months off this is really anyone’s Stanley Cup!

They had a ton of injuries...when healthy they were solid.  Lot’s of new faces this year.

This year could be a dark horse. So far great games with intensity. Without the fans is hardly noticeable. I’m pulling for avs and VGK in the west.
