  • Question for Quebec and Hartford fans. What do you think about the teams moved away from your city now using old teams logos/jerseys? To me it seems in poor taste. Maybe it’s because of the St. Louis Rams move to LA. Also great breakdown as always Mr. Thehockeyguy

Gorgeous location, great rivalry, endless intermission, and good game, even though i’m sad the knights lost and played kinda wacky. All in all a crazy game i wont forget for sure!

  • A couple thoughts: - Colorado's fourth line had 10 shots on goal - The glass on the side boards seemed a little shorter. 2 Delay of Game penalties and probably should have been a third. - Delay of Game penalty for a puck going out of play delays the game more than the actual act does

  • Best game review ever! Such a crazy game. 9 hours between goals and an old man yelling at the sun. The precedent for strangest game ever has now been set. I admit to being a little bummed that ESPN may have the TV contract. That means watching hockey will get MUCH more expensive. No weekend games on NBC. And the NHL blackouts on Center Ice have gotten pretty ridiculous.

  • The game itself was great, the ice issues and 7 hour delay pretty much killed it for me. The NHL needs much better planning for there spectacles, Lake Tahoe was not the right venue, the high sun period is long there, hence Nevada being mostly desert. They should of had it in Washington state somewhere in the mountains. A nice Segway and intro for hockey before the kraken come in. Also if they kept the ice pure white other then ice markers and no logos. The ice would have less problems. I have skated on backyard and public park makeshift ice pads in high sun that had no melt issues. If regular Jill's and joes can build them in backyards and city park crews in parks. What is the NHL s excuse.

  • ESPN really doesn’t have the personnel for hockey and for the last 20 years or so they’ve treated the NHL worse than nascar and high school football. It’s a desperation move made out of weakness and I don’t see this ending well if it is indeed ESPN.

    • I hope ESPN doesn't get it. They haven't cared about hockey since Disney (who owns ESPN) owned the Ducks. Plus today, ESPN is a joke anyway. If they got hockey, they'd probably only talk about Crosby and McDavid 100% of the time.
