He scored two goals last night! My wife's work had box seat tickets to the game, so we were there.

I´d love to see NHL live. I saw the game at home, but it´s never the same than being there live.

The MTS center in Winnipeg is VERY loud. It sells out every game.

Defense and goalkeeping seem not to work in Jets. Their statistics are really bad what comes to taken goals. Their position is third lowest in NHL. Only Dallas Stars and Philadelphia Flyers have sucked more goals than Jets.

Penalties kill the Jets. Their penalty killing is near the bottom of the league, and the amount of penalties they take is near the top.

I don't really follow the NHL but since I watch local sports newscasts and ESPN a lot I can't help but get a little bit of knowledge by osmosis.

Like how the Blues need to start playing as well on the road as they have been at home.

To Blues have been a solid team for several years now.

I don't follow hockey as much as I used to, but I have always like the Leafs. Unfortunately, they have been a solid, steaming pile for many years now.

Damn. First game on this road trip and the Blues lost again. They are now 3-7-1 on the road.

But when you are 12-1-3 at home, you can afford to lose a few games on the road.

Blues won at New Jersey tonight 4-1. If they could just play .500 on the road...

Well, that's a start.

The Leafs won one and lost one this weekend. The Jest lost two games.

At one point I followed NHL like maniac. Nowadays I don´t have time for that. This season is first in years I pay full attention.

I use to be Canadiens fan years ago. And looking the tables, I should be at the moment. Canadiens are flying.

I'm watching parts of the Winter Classic here in STL. It's at Busch Stadium and the rink is the base of a giant guitar laid out on the stadium grounds. It's pretty cool.

Blues ended up winning 4-1 by scoring 3 goals in the third period.

There were over 46,000 people in attendance; that's as many as Busch Stadium can hold so the Winter Classic was a big hit here.

That's great to see that many people there. Those seem to have been a big hit where they've been held.

And the weather was crappy too.  Misty, drizzly, foggy...and it still drew a capacity crowd.  City officials estimate the Winter Classic was worth about 4 mil to the city.

When they have them up here, it's just usually freaking cold.

I actually ended up watching a lot of the game because the bowl game I had planned to watch was a blowout. I still can't see the puck but it was fun when the crowd kept going nuts in the third period.

Hockey can be a pretty exciting game to watch in person, especially if the crowd gets into it.

And that is just absolutely horrendous to goalies. Other players get heat skating and playing fast, but goalies have to some extra work to keep themselfs warm during the game.

Patrick Laine sure got hammered the other day. It's a clean hit.

Yeah! It was nice hit!

He was in a bad position when he got the puck and wasn´t ready to take the hit. He´s a little unexperienced still.

Getting injured was result of the fact that those two players actually hit their heads.

But he´ll get over it.
