[thepuck 2019-01-19] Flyers 5 @ Habs 2 EN

More than half the period was gone before the Flyers achieved a shot on goal. 14 minutes in they had a 3 on 2 against a collapsing Mete and Weber, performed a nice play and missed the net. The period end 0-0 and despite the lack of SOGs by Philly, it's a tight free-flowing game with only ten faceoffs so far with both teams playing well...

[Movie Review] The Forest (2016) 2 Catkins

|

The Forest is a well paced tense ride with appropriate jump-scares but fails in the end by not following the verisimilitude it built up.

The cast was excellent and the production values felt solid. Even the concept had a lot of potential and again, the constant tension was near perfect as this film keeps you glued.

[thepuck 2019-01-21] Avs 0 @ Habs 3 EN

Press are still yacking about MacKinnon's temper tantrum. Ex-Hab Mark Barberio is in the lineup for the Avs.

Below is the lineup with my rating for each player in the game. This is not a direct reflection of their skill level but how they impacted this specific game. It's rated from 1-10. It does not take into account intangibles like how they lead off the ice.

A hodgepodge of review, synopsis and related thoughts. By no means one of those things and yet not all. Just what I felt like writing. :)

These magazines have nice cardstock covers and the front cover looks nice. It's all black & white. Some of the graphics kind of bleed into a blur like the Hekaforge logo.

NHL

Tier1

Scouts had some comments for Kersus today. Jets' LD Julien Melchori was considered fairly good in the vein of Ben Chiarot. Canucks' RW Alexandre Grenier and Capitals' Tyler Lewington were also considered fairly good. Leafs' Matthew MacLean was spotted by Audette and his skill impressed him enough to bring it to Kersus' attention, noting he was a small but creative offensive D-man likely slotted to be a #3 or 4. Kersus sent Timmins to check him out as a one-off.

Versatile forward Conner Brickley has been placed on waivers by the Hurricanes.
