YO…. read today’s GAMEDAY PREVIEW for tonight’s game between the Los Angeles Kings and the Colorado Avalanche. Exclusively on

Joe Sakic - Ugly Action Figure -  Hockey Hoarders

This will make much more sense once you’ve read the GAMEDAY PREVIEW.

And as always… heading into tonight’s NHL action, via Ironsight Design… your FLAMES & OILERS vs LAKINGS update:

And finally… in the time honoured tradition of PennerPoint™ and GagneGoal™ and DrewsDonut™… we present The Royal Half’s latest contest for our fans to win a free t-shirt!!!


The rules are simple… just guess the exact time and period that Trevor Lewis scores his 1st goal of the season tonight against the New Jersey Devils… and you win a free t-shirt from The Royal Half Gift Shoppe. But according to our pals at THXBUD… it may be tough.


Now remember… hockey is played with a clock that counts down from 20:00… so your prediction for LeweysZilch™ has to match the time from the official box score.

Using this screenshot, the goal is scored at 13:08 of the first period. NOT 6:52 of the first.

IT WILL ONLY COUNT IF YOU PUT YOUR PREDICTIONS IN THE COMMENTS BELOW. This is not a Twitter contest. Good luck! Entries end at 7:30pm Pacific Time tonight!
