Halak will be in net. Other people will be wearing white jerseys with smaller pads. They will be wearing metal blades on the bottom of their shoes while being on a slick surface attempting to hit a black mass of solid rubber with sticks into an opposing net with a red border.
One of said players is named Vladimir and is coming off of a hat trick game, it is not the Vladimir that people would expect to get a hat trick.
I am not sure why I'm optimistic, I am a little. Looking forward what I can see of the game, have to miss a good chunk of it. I might record and avoid the board, or maybe I'll just read what you guys have to say and forget catching up on TV. That seems to be the luckier choice!
