The Devils are the only team left without a win...and there are still 2 teams below them in the standings. OITGDNHL

It's actually three, and god damn is this stupid:

Not as stupid as what's going on at the "Wild Card" tab on the standings page, but still pretty dumb.

Red Wings 4, Avalanche 2.

And with that loss, the state of Colorado reverts back to not caring about anything but the Broncos.

So not true.

*has only a Broncos-related signature*

*is wearing an Avs jersey at this very moment*

Meanwhile, at the rate we're going, next year we're going to have to invent a safety measure called "hybrid boarding." "Well, you seemed as if you were about to pancake yet another guy's face into the dashers and concuss him. You were just a few more feet out than you would have preferred to have been. That's a five-minute major for hybrid boarding."

Jacob Trouba just tripped over Jordan Leopold and went face-first into the boards even though Leopold didn't commit a foul. I guess this is hybrid boarding!

Finally decided to check in for the 2013-14 NHL season. Taking advantage of my NHL Center Ice package by watching the Lt. Colonel's favorite team take on the Ducks. Going to Rangers - Jackets on Nov. 7th. I've never jumped on board an NHL season this early in the year.

Ducks making the Coyotes feel at home tonight by playing in a half-empty arena.

Winnipeg blows the goal horn on shootout saves. I find this a bit gratuitous. I don't even like when teams have the horn going off for shootout goals.

At least you waited long enough to skip that stretch where the Rangers were giving up, on average, three goals a period.

Stupid shootout for the Ducks 6th win in a row. I like it. 6-1-0. Keeping pace with the top of the division is something I like, especially with all those years of slow starts in the recent past. I like this a lot more.

And for Sodboy, the attendance was 13,206 (out of 17,174). Not full but not half empty. For whatever reason, it's always been this way for Coyotes games in Anaheim. They've never been able to draw a crowd for Coyotes games, no matter the day or point in the schedule. I can't explain it.

I don't get it either. I mean who turns down a chance to see Shane Doan?

Well I don't mean like that. I mean no matter what day it is, they can't fill for the Coyotes. You'd think on like a Friday or a Sunday you'd get more, but it's no different than a Wednesday game would be.

A Friday game against almost anyone else would get at least 15K. And they had over capacity sellouts for the first two games (home opener Thursday vs NYR, Throwback Sunday night vs Ottawa and Bobby Ryan), and 14,051 on Wednesday vs Calgary.

Idk. I've always found it to be a bit of an oddity. And It can't simply be a lack of traveling Yotes fans.

That could be resolved by dumping the shootout.

Because the Coyotes are :censored: ing boring as hell to watch and there is so much that organization represents that is wrong about the current state of the NHL. It makes sense that folks in Orange County have better ways to spend their money on a given night than making a trek to the Pond to see their Ducks playing effing Phoenix.
