It’s New Years Eve and it’s game day. There’s plenty going on with the team today so lets get right to it! Here are the links from around the web for today, but don’t forget to stay tuned all day for great articles about the game tonight and some other good things.
Today the US Olympic Men’s Hockey Roster will officially be announced after the Winter Classic. Here’s a nice article about the projections (why does Ryan McDonagh always have weird looks on his face in pictures?). Could injury prevent our Ryan “Cap’n Cally” Callahan from competing this year? As soon as the official roster is announced we will break down our Rangers who will be heading to Socchi. Team USA is not the only place we could have players, it is always tricky in the Olympics because team Sweden has our beloved Henrik Lundqvist and Carl Hagelin. As rosters are announced we will be giving you our break downs.
Here’s a little collection of plays from the week. It’s a nice little slide show for you to check out. In all fairness I LOVE blueshirtsunited.com and I get lost there for hours watching videos. So you should go check them out AFTER you read our stuff, not before. HAHA! In all seriousness, those guys do a great job of giving the fans what we want.
Can we all get excited about Marc Staal’s return tonight!! Here’s a little bit about that and a possible Michael Del Zotto situation as well. Let’s hear what you think about Alain Vigneault after you read this one.
For a complete round-up of all the injuries, you should read this one. It touches a little bit on everyone and their status.
Don’t forget Team USA plays at 11:00 in the WJC! Cheer them on with the rest of our staff as the game is aired on NHLNetwork.
Have a great day!
