… So, Jim Dolan, get somebody to check and be sure that the electric bill has been paid. We don’t want the lights going out.
Although, if all the electricity goes out, we are spared from the Versus broadcast. Versus, where you have a better chance of seeing a good replay on the big screen in the arena than you do from your couch in the living room. Versus, the network that makes you pay attention for fear you might miss something. E-gads.
I was reading Puckdaddy, where they list five reasons why Chris Drury is on the US Olympic team. One of them talks about his shot-blocking, and I must say, he’s really, really good at that. A tad expensive for a shot-blocker/penalty killer, but really good at that.
Vinny Prospal returns tonight. Back to the top line with Marian Gaborik and Erik Cristensen.
Dubinsky drops down to play with Callahan and Drury.
By the way, how is Christensen pronounced Christiansen? Well, that’s probably not as bad as all the mispronunciations of Brodeur. Here’s a first-ballot Hall of Famer and even those on his team’s own telecasts can’t pronounce it. Here’s a tip, fellas: Listen to how Ken Daneyko and Chico Resch say it. That’s how Brodeur says it. And can everybody please agree on a pronunciation of Parise?
I’m sure the Versus crew will fix it.
And, on Christensen, he’s been terrific so far. But let’s wait a while before we decide he’s the next this or that, and not the next Daniel Goneau.
We’re planning a live video chat here Friday at lunchtime. More details tomorrow. I’m headed to MSG later on.
