I put in the NHL sticky, too, but we can use this as a pre-game discussion.

Anyway, some background info:

Flyers coach Peter Laviolette planned the practice out in advance but did not release the information ahead of time, so his team could skate in the park on a chilly Saturday without much hoopla and fanfare.

There are two rinks at Central Park - one for public skating and one for hockey - but both offer picturesque views of the Manhattan skyline. The Flyers practiced at Lasker Rink, which is converted into a public swimming pool in the summer when not used for skating from October through March.

Also, Lundqvist is the starting goalie tonight. No word if he or Gaston is the Rangers' starter tomorrow.

What happened to Biron? Thought he was doing well for them.

Pretty cool that they held this open air practice. Must have been nice for the players and staff.

That's pretty cool

infidelappel* 01-15-2011 02:31 PM

I'm so angry. I was gonna go hang out in Central Park today on a whim but didn't. I COULD HAVE BEEN THERE.


That said, this is awesome.

CantSeeColors 01-15-2011 04:21 PM

Damn it. I've been sitting on my buddy's couch in NYC doing nothing all day. Would have loved to go see this.

DeadPhish5858 01-15-2011 04:24 PM

I wish they would do that here in Philly.

Chicken Chaser 01-15-2011 05:29 PM

healthyscratch 01-15-2011 05:47 PM

Yea Shelley has been gaining points in my book in the last 24 hours.

chaosof99* 01-15-2011 11:23 PM

I was kind of surprised that Meszaros has practically no accent, at least none that I noticed. And Shelley's just :facepalm:

dbr2 01-15-2011 11:31 PM

Meszaros is the butcher.:)

Justified 01-16-2011 02:42 AM

pretty cool.

SolidSnakeUS 01-16-2011 03:31 AM

You can hate on Shelley for his crappy play, but man he is definitely a characters.
