Ovechkin would be so much better if he was allowed to freestyle a bit more. When he came into the league, he looked to score first and ask questions later. Now he looks to make the smart, boring play first and is content with it. Boo. Put him on a team that promotes more creativity.

Great transition play by the Sabres. 1-0.

John Carlson seems to have been struggling so far. He wasn't so great last season either. (Except for when he plays us.)

I thought that having a coach like Adam Oates would have helped jump start his career. Not the case so far, though it is still early.

Ovechkin-Backstrom-Anyone should be amazing in theory.

What kind of disturbance happened in the universe that caused Joel Ward to have 3 goals while Ovechkin and Backstrom have combined for 0?

Rangers vs. Bruins was also promoted as a Rivalry game, although it hasn't been anything close to that since the 70's or something. These commentators will say anything they are told to say to make people watch the game.

I mean the Rangers and the Kings play on the same continent. They could be considered continental rivals in theory.

Well, NBC thinks the Bruins and Rangers are rivals but most fans disagree with that as well

And last years Winter Classic "rivalry" was so pumped up where it seemed like the Flyers were the Rangers' only rival. I don't even consider them rivals except for the fact they are in our division.

Yeah, and they think just because the Yanks vs. Red Sox is a rivalry (or was a real rivalry in 2003-2004), everything with Boston and New York in it is a huge RIVALRY game.

It's all nonsense. I'd prefer watching the games with only the arena noise available. TOo bad it's not possible.

If you want OV to get going, why play him with scrubs like Beagle and Joey ****ing Crabb?

Great success.

Yeah, I don't get it. They're doing the same to him that they did to Jagr...

So maybe in a few years time Sather will trade Anson Carter for Ovechkin

Hey, I just found this.. the oilers fans WERE pretty pissed.

If I have the story right.. The goal was waved off AFTER a review for goalie interference. I thought goalie interference was not reviewable? If that's the case they have a right to be pissed.

A phone video from inside the arena (slightly NSFW):

IF NHL Network is going to continue showing games, can they please get their own crew of non-biased commentators/play by play announcers and stop piggybacking/stealing local channels feed, it would be a heck more professional
