Happy St. Patrick’s Day; and some off-day questions

Top O the Mornin’ to You! Don’t drive if you drink. Don’t. Do Not.

We’re going to put this Twitter widget on the side of the page, where you’ll be able to read tweets from all our favorites.

The question I have for you — in addition to what the byfuglien a widget is — is this: Are there any hockey-related twitterers you’d like to have included in the widget? Anybody who has can’t-miss hockey news and updates and thoughts and opinions? Please let me know in the comments. If you can include the address, that would be helpful. I can’t promise I’ll include all of them, but I am looking for input.

Speaking of input, here’s another question. Do any of you guys actually read the pre-game notes we run here on game days? Just wondering if it’s worth the effort, or if we should just post the basics, game info, TV/radio info, maybe the teams’ recent histories, whatever. Again, looking for input.

And, another favor. I don’t know how many of youse have been over to our Facebook page, bit I gather the important thing, or one of the important thing, is how many people “like” it. So, if you would, please go over there and say you like it.


Another question: I am going to be very busy this weekend. I think I’ll be able to watch the Friday game against Montreal, and probably be able to do the game review for Saturday. I don’t know yet about Sunday. Would anybody be interested in doing either review on short notice if I can’t do it? If so, e-mail me at rcarpini@lohud.com.


And, finally, a hockey question. All this talk about Lundqvist yesterday, especially his value in the skills competition, got me thinking. What if Mike Richter had been around during the “shootout” era? How good might he have been in the skills competitions, considering he may have been the best of all-time against penalty shots (I think he was 11 for 12, or 12 for 13 in his career, including a somewhat memorable save in a playoff game once upon a time)? Thoughts?

Games that matter tonight:
Flys at Kansas City-bound Thrashers
Lightnings at Habs (suddenly in play, if Rangers can beat them tomorrow)
Devils at Senators
Air Canada Leaves at Panthers
