Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight – November 19th

First Screen Viewing

Lightning vs. Predators – 7pm

Well if you talk to anyone clad in yellow, this is your Final preview. If you talk to anyone who’s not, they’ll probably tell you that any dip in goaltending from Rinne and Saros will see the Preds short on scoring. But that’s another discussion for another time. This is another clash between two of the league’s Fab Five, so it’s worth seeing. The Bolts have won their last two but have had a slightly leaky problem (that happens to men of a certain age) given that Andrie Vasilevskiy is on the shelf for weeks and Louis Domingue is Louis Domingue. The Preds had lost three in a row but were able to take their free spot on the bingo card with the visit of the Kings on Saturday (it’s what you’re supposed to do to the Kings). The Preds clocked the Bolts pretty hard at the beginning of the month with a 4-1 win in Tampa. So enjoy the last one of these. Unless they play in June. Which they won’t.

Second Screen Viewing

Blue Jackets vs. Leafs – 6pm

Did you know the Jackets are 12-6-2? I didn’t, and I’m guessing you didn’t either. And I bet you’re asking yourself if it matters that they are. And whether you should care or not. And I’m fairly sure the answer to both of those is a hard no. They’re first in the Metro because someone has to be, and the Penguins have decided to not care and the Caps have decided to still be drunk and the Flyers have decided to still be the Flyers and all the New York area teams blow and can’t decide what they are. It doesn’t matter because the Jackets two best players are already checking out property listings elsewhere, and one or both might have to go in the middle of the season to sink the whole thing. And Torts is bitching about how much he hates the league and everyone in it. All of this sounds like something that will see the Jackets balloon sink at some point. Anyway, they play the Leafs. Who are definitely not sinking even without Matthews. Somehow this is all a referendum on William Nylander and the economic system at large. Whatever.
