During the 2008-09 Winter Hawk season, the team has three Friday nights off (not including the Christmas break), so it seems strange to not have a game to prepare for tonight.
So, instead, I’m heading to a poker night with my buddies…it will be a nice diversion and who knows, maybe I’ll bring home some extra cash…
Its back to action tomorrow night with the “Dash for Cash” event and the 7 millionth fan announcement against the Seattle Thunderbirds. Both teams are coming off 7-3 losses on Wednesday, so it should be a doozy.
Seattle can extract some revenge tonight, as they host the Spokane Chiefs, the team they lost to on Wednesday.
Portland should have a bit of revenge on their minds heading into the game after losing 7-1 at the ShoWare Center in their last meeting with the ‘Birds.
Nice to see some great write-ups on former Hawks lately on http://www.nhl.com – Brandon Dubinsky, Glen Wesley and Brenden Morrow all have had articles in the past week or so.
Wesley had his #2 retired in Carolina and it was great to see Wes get that honor. Who can forget the “Wesley Whistler” from the blue line or his up-ice rushes? The little red head (big brother Blake was the big red head) was, and still is, a fan favorite here in Portland.
That’s it for now…time to work on my poker face…
