Kudos To Ben Koo and Derek Hanson for getting all of the hockey bloggers on bloguin together and having a weekly power rankings list. [Bloguin NHL]
We've never been ones to do power rankings, but it is actually fun to vote the Flyers last. But our vote couldn't keep them out of the top ten.
God, Toronto sucks.
Big game tonight.

People have had sex longer than Barry Melrose lasted in Tampa Bay.
It is pretty clear Melrose is a joke, but just in case you forgot...
Check out the screen shot after the jump.
Remember that "Places to Watch Games" post?
Well the new comment system won't let us import the old system. We're working on it.
A cop in Dearborn, Michigan stole some marijuana.
Then he called 911.
Sure it's from 2007, but whatev.
Some news headlines after the jump.
Chris Kunitz does all the little things.
He is one of the best at being in position for the breakout pass in the Pens zone.
He is a plus player.
He pays back opponents that unload big hits on his teammates.
Despite his exploits, Kunitz's name has been popping up
in the headlines and on joke message boards:
Thats why it was all the sweeter when he beat Cam Ward
to secure a win for the Pens in the shootout.
But whoops. It won't even show up on his season stats.
If you're unhappy with Chris Kunitz's production, go to hell.
The World Champs have started the season 6-1.
And people still have to bitch about something.
This win completes a perfect 4-game road trip.
Pens have won their first 5 road games of the season for the first time ever.
MAF is 6-0.

It's the second Staal VS. Staal game of the year.
The first one was overshadowed by some banner, so this is really your first chance to get really drunk.
It also gives us a chance to post this:
Sure, those were last year and they mean nothing in relation to tonight's game, but that doesn't make them any less amazing.
And don't for a second think that Carolina doesn't remember all of that.
As we mentioned earlier today, this is probably a big game for them.
Much like November 11th last year when the Pens played the Wings for the first time since the 2008 Final, the Hurricanes probably circled this date on their calendars as soon as the schedule came out.
That said, as the defending Champions, a lot of teams probably circled the Pens on their schedules.
What an underrated moment in the playoffs. Before the ECF last year, Cam Ward's balls were rubbed down before every game by the media.
Then the Pens shit in his mouth.
Return to the RBC tonight. It's probably a big game for the Hurricanes.
Just another game for the world champs.

Should be coming in the next half an hour.
The Pens have posted a couple new "Defy Ordinary" videos on their website.
"It's a Great Day for Hockey" they are not, but they're still interesting.
