Interestingly, Carolina’s 1:00 p.m. EST start times at home weekend games only seem to be when playing against teams from the Pacific or Mountain time zones (check it out). on their calendar). I’m sure it’s just a coincidence and the NHL doesn’t let a team use that kind of bullshit for competitive advantage, does it? Then again, when you have no problem paying heaps of human garbage like Tony D, that’s not exactly a surprise, I guess.
Either way, since that’s never going to change, better move on and hope it’s not a repeat of the previous East Coast first games, which saw Canucks players suffer game-changing injuries. the season, right?
The Canucks hadn’t played particularly badly in any of the first games of this road tour, but have absolutely nothing to show for it. They’re going to have to do what only the Florida Panthers have been able to do so far this season: beat the Canes for the second time this campaign.
The Canucks beat the Canes 2-1 on Dec. 12, thanks to goals from two guys who really need to start again today, Brock Boeser and Elias Pettersson, and another standout performance from Thatcher Demko, who made 28 saves for the victory. So while they have a Carolina team eager to get a payback, and a 6-0 loss to Columbus a few nights ago, it’s still a winnable game for the Canucks, even if the odds are against them.

GAME DAY BATTLE ANTHEM
In my endless quest to bring you stuff you may never get to hear, I bring you a Hungarian crossover band covering the BEASTIE BOYS classic “Sabotage”. The Hellfreaks started out as a psychobilly act, but drifted into metal-tinged poppy-punk over the years.
Interesting choice of song to tackle, and it’s an unusual but effective song. They’ve been around for a while, but are set to debut on Napalm Records this summer, so be sure to check out some of their previous stuff until this one drops.
Enjoy the game, huh? Come on Canadians, come on!
