No, I'm not talking about Daylight Savings Time. In case you haven't heard, the Philthy Phlyers game Sunday has been moved to 12:30 EDT (if you're still in the DST mood). I couldn't find any reason for the move other than the fact that we'll all have to put up with NBC's coverage 2 1/2 hours earlier than predicted at the beginning of the season. Last time we got away without having Doc and Edzone in the booth, but I'm not sure we can expect that kind of luck 2 games in a row.... Yes Ed, we know you're still bitter about the Pens firing you. There are plenty of bridges around, why don't you just go deal with your pain that way? Instead of making all the rest of us suffer. We didn't fire you, we just agreed with it.... Sheesh.
Coach Dan will be coaching against the team that gave him his playing start tonight when the Pens meet up with the LA Kinks tonight at 7:30. (Different morons in the booth. But hey, they're OUR morons) Coach Dan played for LA from '95-00 in 220 games, but is not going to let sentimentality to get in the way of gaining two points for the Pens. The Pens didn't skate in line combos so they're taking an even wilder than usual guess about who's skating with whom, but predictions are that The Tower of Flower Power will be protecting the twine tonight.
As usual, more to come as the clouds in my mind dissipate.....
For the 'Short Attention Span Contingent' Sunday 12:30 for the Phylthy Phlyers game
