As I've mentioned before, I enjoy writing this little column on Monday mornings. After all, there are actual scores to talk about.
The Hamilton Bulldogs played a high-scoring two game set against the rival Toronto Marlies, winning 6-3 and then losing 6-1.
The much maligned Alexander Avtsin scored in the win for his team. It was his first game this year.
Down a notch below, the Wheeling Nailers got hammered 6-1 (a lot of sixes, eh?) by the Toledo Walleye.
Interestingly — and also discouragingly — both farm teams sit at 14th in their respective conferences.
Habs and Hockey News
- HabsWorld provides an always excellent recap of the activity down in Hamitlon and Wheeling.
- As the NHL and NHLPA are set to return to the table today, Grantland's Bill Simmons contemplates impeaching Gary Bettman.
