Finally, it's the unofficial end of our long summer of free-agent frenzies and cap headaches and contract rejections and Patrick Kane adventures and blog vs. MSM squabbles and whatever the hell this turned into. It's a night of completely meaningless games featuring dozens of players who'll disappear in about two weeks!
The 2010-11 NHL preseason games begin tonight; and we figured there's no better way to express our joy than with this video, featuring the time-lapse creation of the ice at Scotiabank Place, set to "Blue Rondo a la Turk" by Dave Brubeck. Enjoy:
Via Fire & Ice, Johan Hedberg(notes) and Mike McKenna(notes) are your Devils goalies tonight, and no Ilya Kovalchuk(notes) or Zach Parise(notes) for Jersey; Nikolai Zherdev(notes) and Andrej Meszaros(notes) are in the lineup for the Flyers.
Consider this an open thread for tonight's action; if you spot any live blogs for tonight's games, pop the links in the comments. If anything wacky happens, we'll blog it later here on PD. Enjoy, and be sure to check the Puck Daddy Facebook page on Wednesday for a little contest action. Thanks for reading.
