It's 3pm on the East Coast and the first games of this season are getting ready to start. We're still five hours from puck drop in St. Louis, but I know I'm watching games.
If you're lucky enough, there are two games on NBC right now as the Penguins & Flyers start out, as do Chicago and Los Angeles. If you're not lucky enough to have your local affiliate showing a game (like me), NBC.com will stream them live and/or you could watch Senators/Jets on the Center Ice free preview.
I'm watching hockey. I'm excited about it. We'll see how long that lasts.
Later tonight, I'll be watching hockey I'm REALLY excited about. We'll have a full game thread up for that later on. In the meantime, you can hang out here in an open thread and laugh about bad things happening to teams and players you don't like.
