Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight – January 2nd

First Screen Viewing

Lighting vs. Maple Leafs – 6pm

Big night on the slate, and there’s a couple “top of the table” clashes for you. This one in the T.O. has two of the three teams in the East that matter, and that’s if I’m being kind and say the Bruins matter. Not sure anyone in the Metro does either. Anyway, the Lightning are torching the league so they don’t have much to play for. The Leafs are 10 points behind the Bolts, so they’re not catching them in this world. But this is still two teams with tons of firepower and coaches that aren’t morons–even if one of them routinely tastes his own spunk to check for flavor and viscosity. And we can count on the Toronto media to make way too much of this result, especially if the Leafs get trounced.

Second Screen Viewing

Predators vs. Knights – 9pm

At this point, the NHL should have to explain why an expansion team is partaking in a “big game” halfway through the season. Doesn’t really speak to overall quality when a team thrown together with bit parts, stickum, and some hobos can lead a division. But here we are. The best team in the Central, and probably West, seeing if they can get through this Vegas Flu thing. And while we’re on the subject, if it’s truly a matter that NHL players can’t actually resist going out in Vegas until 4am the night before every game, wouldn’t that make them the most unprofessional group ever? Seriously, keep it together and in your pants for one night.
