(if i had a dollar for every time i explained this, i could retire in comfort, and go to every single red wings game for the rest of my life + travel).
    Even for the Islanders I am sure all those tickets are sold as well, just much harder to RESELL when the team is so bad. Florida is the exception because their Club Red seats behind the bench cost $30,000 for the season and NO ONE buys that, which makes it look so bad on their televised home games. I would be surprised if you ever saw a Florida home game on NBC.

    If they play the Penguins on Saturday or Sunday it can happen.

    A lot of the people who live in Sunrise, Florida where the Panthers play, a good chunk of them happen to be retired Canadian snowbirds and vacationers visiting. Of course they can't sell those seats, even to Canadian retirees because no one wants to spend 30k a year to see a mediocre hockey team.

    That was a dumb penalty to take by Ericsson, but I don't know what Lashoff was doing either. The puck was blocked right in front of him and he let Stalberg skate right around him and flick it to Kane.

    Damn, I was gonna try to get here and say "inb4 marcelos starts whining"

    Yes, blatant missed calls but do you ever not cry about every call that's not in your favor? It's like your team does no wrong.

    By the way - We win.
