Since it is so late in the afternoon, and there's quite a few games tonight, today's Squid will also serve as an open thread for the games before ours. Unlike similar threads that Sean and Yankee have put up before, this one won't close when the real GDT goes up, and will also have headlines after the jump. Today's games:
- 4:00 pm PDT: Sabres host the Devils. Looks like a battle between Ryan Miller and Martin Brodeur tonight. Visit Die by the Blade and In Lou We Trust for more coverage.
- 4:00 pm PDT: Capitals host Islanders. Best in the conference versus the worst? Quite likely. Visit Japer's Rink and Lighthouse Hockey for more.
- 4:30 pm PDT: Canadiens host Lightning. Is another Mattias Ohlund smash on the way? Visit Habs Eye on the Prize and Raw Charge for more.
- 4:30 pm PDT: TSN decides to treat us by showing the Maple Leafs visiting the Penguins as the other part of the double-header tonight. Are the Leafs really that good, or will Sidney Crosby end Toronto's winning streak? Visit Pension Plan Puppets and Pensburgh for more.
- 5:30 pm PDT: Blackhawks host the Predators. How many Hawks will Shane O`Brien piss off? Visit Second City Hockey and On The Forecheck for more.
- 7:00 pm PDT: Canucks visit the Ducks, obviously.
A couple links after the jump.
Canucks.com previews our game.
- Carey Price is in net for Montreal's home opener tonight. This could be interesting....

Good news for Pittsburgh (as well as everyone who picked him in their fantasy pools), Jordan Staal has started skating again.
The first "King of the Rink" segment this year introduces us to Cory Schneider.
