The Morning Skate for Friday, October 12th

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of being pelted by water bottles by angry fans. Man you would have thought it was Philly, not Phoenix...
  • Mats Sundin becomes the Leafs all-time leading scorer and points-getter in an 8-1 romp over the Islanders. Mats is a classy guy so we'll be classy and congratulate him, even though, you know, Leafs suck;
  • Sens' winning streak comes to an end with a 5-3 loss to the Canes. Let's see, Canes beat Sens, Habs beat Canes, how does that math work for you on October 18th, Five for Smiting?
  • After the "success" of the London experiment this year, it looks like next season will open in the Czech Republic. Pilsner + absinthe + hockey = one hell of a good time.

Today on FHF, resident goalie expert Panger takes an in-depth look at the Franchise Saviour (TM) so grab a lovely beverage and watch the show. Looking forward to the big home opener this weekend? TMS' swinging bachelour pad is within view of The Phone Booth, he can already smell the hot dogs cooking. Of course we'll have an open thread for those of you not lucky enough to be one of the 21,273 so we hope you'll pop in. We'll be taking bets on how long it will take the "faithful" to chant Ca-rey! Ca-rey! after the Christo-Wall lets in his first goal.
