Sportsnet is loving the World Series. Game 5 tonight, Royals and Giants are tied in the series.

Okay, the road trip was fairly rough on us. Well, the Canucks are now home, and can work on rebuilding their mojo. Tonight's matchup is always a fun one, with Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals in town. In fact, THN's Ken Campbell seems to think that Nicklas Backstrom could be one of the top scoring Swedes of all time. The 26 year old posted his 500th career point against Edmonton the other night, after only 501 games played. We've got a couple twins that might have something to say about that.

Coconuts go!
