Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight – March 5th

First Screen Viewing

Hurricanes vs. Bruins – 6pm

The Bs don’t have  much to play for other than figuring out where their series against the Leafs begins and ends. But the Canes might be the NHL’s best roadshow right now, and will try and start to move clear of the Pittsburgh-Columbus-Montreal mess around the wildcards. The addition of Nino Neiderrieter has been particularly, and predictably, a boost for them. They’re sporting two scoring lines for once, along with that brilliant blue line (Dougie is crushing fools again), and even getting goaltending. While they’re only one point clear of the wildcard spots, the five points to the top of the division doesn’t really look that much bigger with the way they’re going. And they anger old, white men. You have to love it.

Second Screen Viewing

Jets vs Lightning – 6:30

Yeah yeah yeah…”FINAL PREVIEW.” I mean, maybe. The Bolts long ago lost anything to play for except for awards and the beating of ghosts. And yet they still rack up the points. They’re just waiting now to violate one of the said grouping above. The Jets can’t seem to get unfucked and yet are still top of the division with three games in hand on the Preds. They don’t have much of a defense without Dustin Byfuglien, which doesn’t make any goddamn sense. But neither does life. Two immense collections of forward talent lay waste to each other here.
