I needn't fear though. In the crazy, hectic 48-game shortened schedule there will be plenty of hockey to watch in the 99 days that will compose the NHL regular season, and I for one, really can't wait to be distracted by it on a nightly basis. In fact, despite being on about five hours of sleep right now, I just may stay up late watching the Blackhawks visit Phoenix tonight because, well, I missed it all that much.
I could expound upon this a little more, but I'm short for time and I pretty much laid out how I think this season will pan out in some extensive detail here. You can read up on it if you're so inclined.
In the meantime, though, I'm content to just sit back and watch the puck drop. Oh, and watch some football. I suppose I should get into that since there are some sort of kind of big games today. Here's how I'm expecting them to go, and it is only slightly biased by my own hopes toward the outcome.
AFC Championship Game
(4) Baltimore over (2) NEW ENGLAND
NFC Championship Game
(1) ATLANTA over (2) San Francisco
Enjoy the football, and welcome back to hockey season, everyone.
