Wondering if this game might be kinda hard on the eyes tonight.  Three days in a row off the ice, for these guys, is an awfully long time.

I really think this game will be a battle between Duby and Rinne, and my money is on a rusty Duby.

Ha, that would be a great name for a drink or a shot.

 

"Hey man, how was New Year's?"

 

"It was good.  Day after would have been much better had I not rammed down all those Rusty Duby's..."
