2016/17 NHL Game Thread

Didn't see one started. I've never been on a board that didn't have one. And although it might seem strange that a hockey fan in Texas is creating it, make no mistake.

I love hockey!

Much better showing in the 2nd. Korpikoski with a nice goal. Not bad considering he just showed up.

2-1

Stars fall flat in 3-0 loss to Columbus

https://www.nhl.com/stars/news/stars-fall-flat-in-3-0-loss-to-columbus/c-282968358

"That was as flat as flat could be. I've never seen this team in two years move the puck so poorly. "Missed passes, bad passes, hang on too long. It was a collective effort. There's nothing to like about that game. I can understand the displeasure in the building. I was with them."
- Lindy Ruff


After zipping through the game on my DVR, I concur. That was awful.

Jets and Stars got chippy during warmups. They play three times in the next week and a half including a back-to-back tonight and Thursday night.

Just sayin'

Niemi with 39:50 minutes of brilliant hockey. And 0:10 of not so brilliant hockey.

2-1 Stars

Niemi was terrific except for the brain fart at the end of the 2nd period. So was Hutchinson for the Jets. But it was one of those games where I needed a roster for BOTH teams. There are dudes with the Stars I didn't have a clue about (I still don't know anything about Justin Dowling but he had an assist last night).

Thursday night should be entertaining. I'm betting on a scrap or two.

Nice win for the B's last night, and another solid game in net for Rask. With the lack of defensive depth, the Bruins go as Tukka goes.
