Yinz excited for some early evening hockey today?

Alright, onwards to the East Coast and some real early games!

...which may or may not be blanketed by snow over this weekend where the Kraken are supposed to play games.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hope they brought shovels for that Islanders game.

Anyway, the Metro is going to be putting up a fierce resistance against the Kraken, particularly the Pens, who are a point behind the Rangers for division lead and have been slowly clambering to get on top for weeks now. The Pens recently shacked up with Jeff Carter for the next couple of years to help keep some veteran presence in their lineup...but we all know what that’s window dressing for; Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. The two-headed hydra of the Metro. Shutting those two down is tough, but no team in the league is as good at finding random NCAA guys that just so happen to fit their system, so it will be quite a handful to deal with Crosby and his group of Mark Donks.

Question of the thread!: If one of the Washington schools went in for full on Division I hockey, which jersey would you get? Huskies? Cougs? Bulldogs? Eagles?
