Hockey is BACK!!!

A new NHL is upon us and I'm pretty excited! I'm in 2 fantasy hockey pools and I am sleep deprived as most NHL games do not start until 1am here in Norway. I mostly watch Ottawa Senators games (my hometown team - see banner ) but I also like to watch a great game between 2 top teams in the league.
I was lucky enough to attend the NHL Premiere in Stockholm on Octoer 5th where Ottawa played the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins are the defending Eastern Conference Champions and they have 2 of the top players in the NHL: Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby.
I never realized how much hockey was a big part of Canadian culture until I went back to Ottawa in February for 3 weeks. Hockey is in our commercials, coffee shops, and it's even on our $5 bill
I came across this awesome video that was featured on Canada's top sports station's web site. It's like ESPN, but you know, better
Hockey is BACK and it's pretty sweet
