Let me know if you want on or off the list...
So, it looks like the hockey game never broke out.
There’s a hockey ping list? Please do add me.

Welcome to the party!
Here’s an 8 minute news report.
Looks like you’re about right.
Any Chiefs players in the background? What about the triplets????
Back in the ‘70s we called this ‘expansion’ hockey - fights brought crowds! I stopped watching until The Great One appeared.
Gretzky and Bettman saved the NHL twice over.
Btw, great Flames-Canucks game last night - finally, the Canucks have a fearsome offense, even if they did lose this one.
Please add me to the list!
This looks like something straight out of the LNAH...
BTW, I hate the original ‘Slapshot’ movie.
Apparently, the evils of the North American “game” have corrupted the pure International sport.......
I’ll gladly put you on the list.
And for your viewing pleasure -—
“huge LNAH fight”
Jaromir Jagr (ex Penguin, Capital, Ranger) took part in the festivities.
So you have to blame him for bringing his new found “corrupt American ways” back with him! 8^)
It was ugly. They damn near ruined a great sport with that crap.
Judging by the empty seats in the arena, the owners are probably desperate for attention; gladiatorial violence is the lowest common denominator of public amusements.
The potential of a fight and the occasional toe-to-toe slugfest keeps chippy play to a minimum in this fast dangerous game. Otoh, dropping the gloves several times a game destroys the flow of the match. The NHL has a good balance these days.
That was awesome!
Two great heavyweights standing toe to toe and swinging till they can’t anymore!
Those were the good old days!
I prefer the hockey of today, where skilled players vastly outnumber the goons.
If I wanted to watch a fight, I’d turn on MMA.
Looks like Jagr has added a new dimension to his game. LOL!
