The Game Day Skate is going West, young man, for Thursday February 17th

Today's Heritage Classic alternate jersey is all like "well, maybe if the refs think we're one of them, we'll get some calls"

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of not having a running game next year...
  • Well, 5th place was fun while it lasted - Caps 7, Ducks 6 in a wild one, with Semin getting a hat trick;
  • The Leaf is only 8 points out of a playoff spot! They're the best team in the league!!!! Leafs 2, Sabres 1;
  • Devils continue to be hot (8-1-1 in their last 10) with a 3-2 win over the Canes;
  • Flyers win their league-best 38th game;
  • Avs lose their 9th in a row, to the Pens in OT;
  • The Flames get back into a playoff spot with a 4-2 win over the Stars. We know you don't care about the Western Conf, but take a look at the 4-8 clusterfuck in the West standings this morning. It's pretty cool;
  • Get well, Joel Quenneville;
  • Be sure to check the FHFunnies today, as we have been zinged;
  • Let's get to the really important news - the return of Paul Mara! We think it says something about the state of our kiddie corps defense that we are THRILLED to welcome back a player who we openly derided on a regular basis last year. No doubt SpatCHes, who is not going West, is injured worse than we thought. What was Mara's nickname again?
OK, Habs head West for three games, starting with Edmonton tonight. FHF is thrilled that our West Coast correspondent Panger will be attending both Alberta games live, and will review them for us. You know, assuming he's not too drunk.

Paul Fucking Mara?

I give up...

Paul Mara...?...doesn't sound much lie the answer to our injury plagued defence - don't think he was brought in to light up the scoreboad - but with Gill out hopefully he can add some solid D and might prove a calming influence on PFK...all that being said - wasn't he all round shit last year? I can't remember - Oh shit - we're screwed!

I am not convinced that PG will bring back Kovy to,

I know this will never get read, but I need to correct what I wrote. I meant i am 'now' convinced that PG will get Kovy...which would be a shitty thing.
