The Morning Skate for Monday, January 21st

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of being 18-0. That was for you, Panger. I still think they are cheaters and if Norv Turner could play call in the red zone they would have lost, but I digress this is a hockey blog...
  • Devils end the Leafs hot streak with a 3-2 win. TMS was in Tronna over the weekend and the delusions of grandeur had returned amongst Leaf fans. Or maybe they never left;
  • Flyers crush Sens (!?), now lead Atlantic division (!?);
  • Crosby to have MRI today. Followers of Hockey Jesus everywhere pray.

This might get its own post, but TMS wants to salute the great, great broadcaster Don Wittman who died over the weekend at the age of 71. He was known for his Olympics work (amongst milions of other broadcasting credits) but he could kick ass on a HNIC broadcast too. If only he did East coast games during all those years instead of Bob Cole, life would have been that much better.

You know I'm actually a Seahowks fan, but I'm also a historian so how can you root against history? Besides, HF29 you're naive if you think only the Pats cheat. ThYes, they got caught, but Shawn Merriman is a cheat and he played yesterday.

Anyway, back to hockey: Leafs suck.
