Now, if they could just stop doing such an unbalanced schedule and have all the teams play 76 games, we'd be in business.

Narrator: They didn't.


Schedule format came out today for the Monsters. Still unbalanced like always.

Apparently the Marlies got a too much man penalty because the ref didnít notice theyíd pulled their goalie (on a delayed penalty) so banner day all around.

Looked to me like a stage kick to the ribs. It's a gif of one cable company access channel ripping the feed from another cable company access channel, so who knows. Later in the Twitter thread there's a gif of Ron Hextall cutting an oiler's leg off, which is surprisingly not part of a mural on Pattison Ave.

yeah, I ref and one of the big things in the rules are that even attempts to kick a guy are always a match, no ifs ands or buts.

Yeah, might have been one of those type of plays, then the league will look at it and just rescind the match and call it a day. If they don't rescind the match and give Lyons a game suspension for that though...wow.

Colorado beats Fort Wayne 4-3 in overtime in an instant classic. Eagles tied it with 3 minutes remaining in the 3rd and won on a power play 10 minutes into OT. God drat they are something.

E: They will face the Florida Everblades for the Kelly Cup starting friday night in Colorado. Playing a 2-3-1-1 format

It wasnít a lot but that replay kinda downplays it compared to when I was watching. The ref was immediately on it though, and Iím kind of ok with a zero-tolerance outlook on that kind of thing specifically in hockey for what should be obvious reasons. But yeah NHL players have straight stomped on dudes and gotten less, itís a real gutsy call.

I think it's more an attempt to weed out that stuff before it gets to the nhl level

So, uhh, Eeli Tolvanen was snubbed as the KHL rookie of the year. He broke the league record for most points as an 18-year-old (19+17 in 49 games). Instead, a Traktor Chelyabinsk player (4+3 in 35 games) got the award.

There were some rumours that it could only be awarded to a Russian player but Jokerit said in a tweet that KHL had confirmed to them that anyone could win it. Well done!

I'm watching the Marlies-Phantoms game 4, and I'm so used to high level hockey. Seeing people walk into the slot, wind up, and rip a slap shot from 10 ft out is wild. Such a different game.

Vanbisbrouck was named director of hockey ops for USA hockey. This has caused some level of consternation given that he once called Trevor Daley the n word while he was the GM of the greyhouds in 2003 and allegedly never apologized to him. In addition to him not really having a superb resume relative to other candidates.

Tell me about the rabbits, George

Quad Cities had their ECHL team fold, but they'll have a new SPHL team next season. They get the old Louisiana Ice Gators franchise, and are having a contest to pick their name / mascot.

The SPHL will stay at 10 teams though, the Mississippi River Kings are going dark for a year (forever).
