Interesting hockey day.
First, the holiday roster freeze is now over, which means the Rangers could be shedding some bodies soon. And one of those is probably going to be pretty controversial.
This afternoon at 3:30, Team USA plays Finland in the World Junior Championships on NHL Network.
Your boys start a three-game trip in D.C. against Dale Hunter’s spiraling Capitals at 7:30.
And then at 10 p.m. comes HBO’s “24/7” episode 3, the one that will focus largely, if not almost exclusively, on the Rangers-Flyers Festivus game on Friday.
And in case the Rangers game and post-game aren’t over by 10, HBO will show the episode again at 11.
By the way, this thing where the Empire State Building is going to be lit up in Rangers colors on two sides and Flyers colors on the other two sides … do the powers that be realize that in New York City the Flyers are kind of, you know, hated, despised, loathed?
I mean, I get that this is all one big giant jersey/paraphernalia
