Noteable Noteables:

  • After yesterday’s light NHL schedule (due to Super Bowl Sunday), the NHL back in full force tonight with a slate of seven games, including three late starts, so get that coffee brewing! Highlights tonight include the Kings trying to get back on track against Chicago, the Blue Jackets taking on the red hot Anaheim Ducks, and Ottawa trying to bounce back from a devastating 6-3 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.
  • Ottawa’s loss to the Maple Leafs dropped them from the final Wild Card spot in the East. The Senators made up some ground through December and January, but they once again find themselves on the outside looking in.
  • After a franchise record eight game winning streak, the Columbus Blue Jackets dropped three games in a row. Now Columbus has won their last two and are looking for a third consecutive win tonight against Anaheim Ducks. The Jackets start a four game road trip that will swing through California, so the road looks pretty tough ahead.

Social Distortion – “Story Of My Life”

With so many teams passing through California this week, I thought I’d go with one of my favorite California punk bands, Social Distortion, for the first Pregame Warm Up song. Enjoy!
