Eyes On The Prize
Four Hockey Fans

Look. I'm a Western Conference guy. And an American. So I'm not going to pretend to know anything about the Montréal Canadiens except that I'm still upset about 1993 and apparently the Canadiens have some young Russian defenseman that loves to hit more than our young Russian defenseman does. 

I'll cheer any dude that lays out Pavelski like that.

Oh... and the other thing I know about the Montréal Canadiens... they might want to think about a new advertising agency next season.

Montréal Canadiens ad... or White Chicks sequel?

Fine. I'm going to move on from Mike Richards and the news of his placement on the Injured Reserve list. Instead, I'll focus on the return of a prominent player to the Los Angeles Kings lineup. 

Not you, blue eyes.

Not you either... even though you had plenty of time in the press box to grow that mustache.

Welcome home, son.

That's right.... guess who's back? I think it's no coincidence that as soon as most people are finished with their Thanksgiving leftovers... Dustin Penner returns to the Los Angeles Kings lineup. But it wasn't Dustin Penner's return to the 2nd line that was making Kings fans huff and puff all morning... it was Kevin Westgarth's promotion to the 3rd line. 

I'm not sure why everyone is complaining about Kevin Westgarth being on the 3rd line...
...he should be on the 2nd since he has more goals than Dustin Penner.


Sup, *******.

That's right! America's (and most of Canada's) favorite game is back... PennerPoint. The rules are simple. Just guess the exact time and period that Dustin Penner scores his 1st goal of the season... and you win a free t-shirt from The Royal Half Gift Shoppe. You can put your predictions in the comments below or reply to me on Twitter with #PennerPoint. Good luck everyone. And good luck to you, Dustin.
