Five Things to Watch
The Grind Line Reuinted
Hockeytown's favorite bad boys are back together to play against an old "friend." Think they're gonna have fun out there?
Could a fight actually break out?
I'm of the opinion that if a fight breaks out, I'm probably going to get really grumpy because it would likely be completely staged, and take away from the entire nostalgia of watching these players play again.
Peter Forsberg gets to skate on the same ice as his idol again!
What a big day for former NHL superstar Peter Forsberg gets to play against his idol Nick Lidstrom. I wonder if he'll get an autograph.
Everyone count how many times FSD shows "Fight Night," and every time they show Claude Lemieux getting his ass kicked by Darren McCarty, take a drink!
Patrick Roy getting burned multiple times for old times' sake
You know, Roy has been taking this game seriously. It seems photos of him practicing were surfacing every other day. Here's to hoping that Shanny, Stevie, McCarty, Lidstrom, Dougie Brown, and aw hell, the rest of the gang score a goal each on ol' Patrick.
Keep an eye out for the WIIM crew. We'll be in attendance, getting loud and getting proud.
