NHL: Preseason-Vancouver Canucks at Los Angeles Kings
Winning the 1st game is the next thing to winning it all
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Winning the pre-season is the most prestigious achievement for a (semi-near-last-place) NHL team looking to make a statement about the real season(s).

The first vowel slipped off the lips easily yesterday, stuttered a bit when Brown took a dump in our net, but the new Boss of OT put an exclamation mark on WINNING!

In case you missed the best (and still best) Nucks game so far, here’s the highlights:

But today, the Canucks face a new challenge - a new expansion team from Las Vegas. I’m not making this up! The fake expansion news apparently was real and we have a new foe in our division, in our arena today - The Las Vegas Golden Shite. This team of stolen players hopes to be challenging for the Cup in five years. They will have to steal the Cup from the HHoF. Or just buy a cheap copy and keep it in the Bellagio.

Is it too early to start a long and bitter divisional rivalry? Never.

What shall we call these florescent fakers from the Strip?

I know, let democracy decide!

This Vegas team of unprotected talent has so much dis-name potential - that’s the one bright spot in the expanding desertification of NHL hockey.

Enjoy this final game of the Stolen Knights - what happens in Vancouver, stays in Vegas.
