Sorry for the delay State of Hockey legion. By now, you no doubt know everything there is to know about tonight’s contest between the Wild and Capitals (I tried to use the “no” sound as much as possible in that sentence). I’m not going to make excuses for the tardiness of today’s Lighthouse blog, other than to say I’ve been without a computer all day. I don’t call that an excuse, just stating the facts. Don’t worry, I’ve got Saturday Night Live’s Nick Burns, your Company’s Computer Guy working diligently on it while I work on a Radio Shack TRS-80 Model III. That’s me working on it to the right.
So, you probably already know the Wild will be facing Alexander Ovechkin. You probably already know that Guillaume Latendresse is out, Antti Miettinen is a gametime decision and Chuck Kobasew is probable. You’re well aware that Colton Gillies is in, Casey Wellman is Antti’s backup, and Niklas Backstrom is your starter.
But did you know that it’s Hockey Fights Cancer Night tonight? And that you can bid on game-used autographed items outside section 104? Well, there you go Know-it-all.
Finally, have a look at this Wild TV commercial featuring Greg Zanon wreaking havoc on John Madden’s golf game.
