Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight – March 8th

First Screen Viewing

Flyers vs. Bruins – 6pm

After getting their dick knocked in the dirt by the Penguins, in probably a pretty sobering preview of what might away in April or May, the Flyers head up I-95 to Boston to take on one of the other best teams in the league in the Bruins. The Bs are without their #1 center and #1 d-man in Patrice Bergeron and Charlie McAvoy, and yet they keep on rolling. Both Khudobin and Rask have hit something of a cold streak though so that might be the breaking point. The Flyers still need all the points they can get to avoid dropping out of the automatic spots or even out altogether. It’s that tight in the Metro. Also getting brained by two Cup contenders two nights in a row wouldn’t do much for morale. Then again neither does living in Philadelphia.

Second Screen Viewing

Jets vs. Devils – 6pm

The Devils find themselves swimming against the current as well in the Metro, as a Taylor Hall binge hasn’t been able to save them from dropping a few. They’re five points up on the Panthers but the Cats have three games in hand on them so it could get hairy in a hurry. Hairy in a hurry, he said. That’s funny. But the hockey world wants Taylor Hall in the playoffs. We need it. The Jets seem pretty entrenched in second in the Central, six points back of the Preds and six points ahead of the Wild. Geographical oddity that, six points from everywhere! Anyway, these are two of the faster teams in the league, so should be a good one for the 388 people in Newark who bother to show up instead of complaining about the snow, a New York metro area tradition.
