I suppose I could also follow the US women's under 18 team play for the gold as well. I think the game started at 10:30 AM

I guess that the women's game is going to OT. I can only see twitter updates though.

Sorry, can't help out with that. Sounds like a fun trip to take in the winter though.

Win-win.
We ended going an hour early and left when the game started

Also used the vouchers to get six t-shirts, a mini basketball, a penant, some mini-donuts, a couple drinks, and a couple snacks.

Human mind.. I don't even remember I was mad. What lockout?

I've got a bit oldish AV gear and laptop. Laptop has been very slow with streaming recently.. I think its lifespan is comin to an end soon. So made a cheap fix. Just ordered a new BD player from webshop (LG BD420 with SmartTV, 99€). I can connect it to Viaplay and Viaplay sells NHL GameCenter here in Finland.

I hope it works and fixes my streaming problems.

You should probably run a registry clean and empty the temporary internet files and othr stuff with CCleaner, then remove unnecessary start-up programs using the msconfig tool and run a disk cleanup.

We're all forgetting about the best part of this new CBA agreement. Now we finally get to see the All-Star ride around in his boat on Becoming Wild.

Thanks. I remember I've done something like that when I was younger.. CCleaner sounds distantly familiar. But I'm getting old and computers are not my cup of tea

Actually, the problem comes when I try to run videos with Firefox. Whole machine freezes and fan starts to scream like a fighter jet's afterburner. But Chrome runs videos much more smoother, almost without problems. So this could be some kind of software problem?

Might be. It might be adobe flash too.

I can of course take a look at your laptop if you want to, I'm an ex-Helpson employee so I have experience with dealing these kinds of things. You don't think you have time to bring it to Espoo sometime? I won't promise anything but I'll see if I can help to make it any faster. We should take this to PM though.

Thanks, but I think I'll be fine. Got to try to clean this thing a bit first. Flash is something that came to my mind also. I remember reading some problems with Flash and Firefox. This machine is also getting old, I think I've got to replace it anyhow some time sooner or later.

BD player may fix the GameCenter problems. If not, I can use Chrome. And it's much more comfortable to watch TV separately and GDT only with a laptot. No need to jump between the different windows / tabs.

BD player replacement had to happen one day also. I'm One step closer moving on to 3D era .

Good for you. I don't have a TV, so I'm still stuck with streams.

After staying up to watch these WJC games, I'm thinking you Finns do this for every Wild game. Wild Finn fans are my heroes.

Finns don't sleep. We hibernate.

Seriously. Thanks, but.. I don't know if someone does but I don't watch every game. You've got to pick up the right ones and try to get along with the sleep deprivation. Weekends mostly and.. unlike you guys, we love east coast away games

I try to watch every game. I usually fail, but hey.

That being said, my body clock is somewhere in US east coast anyway.

Got my skates sharpened today by the Wild trainers at General Sports (been going there for years, didn't realize until today they had Wild trainers working there during the lockout). Also pretty sure I spotted Cullen leaving as I walked in and definitely saw FSN's Jenny (and awkwardly stared while trying to figure out why she looked so familiar). So an exciting day.

And then lost again tonight to fall to 1-8-1. Although I did get an assist and finished +1 while we lost 4-1.

tonight, i was still assigned D.

we started the game with 6, after the first period, our captain moved two of the others up to fourth line wingers. i sheepishly asked; "what about me" and was told, "just keep doing what you've been doing. get in the way well"...

my personal numbers: 0g - 0a - +1 - 7 blocked shots

i had six, maybe seven really nice passes, 3 or 4 of them were handled well by the forwards. could have rushed the puck up the ice, but everyone was changing behind me, so I circled back at their blue line, and kept possession long enough to get the forwards changed. passed it to the stronger center, then changed. one of our goals was scored while i was still standing after that change.

our team improved to 8-1-1 tonight's 2-1 frenetic win.
