If anyone wants a laugh, looks like there is a Haggs related Twitter battle going on between some of the beat writers. I can't pinpoint the exact start since I don't follow a few of them, but it looks like Amalie Benjamin called out Haggs recently, and then old friend Jimmy Murphy (who knew he was still around?) decided to enter the fray and defend the honor of Haggs and calls Benjamin out for apparently not knowing hockey but pretending she does.

In horrifying news, Colin Miller is skating with the healthy scratches. Kevan Miller is also skating, but this seems like a precursor to Kevan playing over Colin tonight.

UGH, Colin Miller should be in the lineup, Kevan has been brutal and Bartkowskiesque this year.

Well, I get my once-a-year chance to see the Bruins. Skipping my own game for it, so this better be good.

Calgary has had a horrendous start, despite high- expectations. Playing better now, though.

Should be fun. I think I am hoping for a three-point game, and a Calgary OT win - but I am honestly ambivalent. Except about the three-point game part. Always want that when your two teams play each other and they aren't in the same division.

I'm interested to see how Dougie looks. His numbers appear to show him struggling, but it's hard to parse that out from how bad Calgary has been so far.

But he plays with grit :rolleyes:


When he can catch up to the guy
I enjoyed this. I do not enjoy Kevan starting over Colin in the Miller defensive choice contest. I don't care how many pull ups he can do.

That should really be all the evidence you need to fire a coach. Kevan Miller isn't a competent NHL defenseman. Colin is.

The thing is, Claude has adapted and is pushing the right buttons by and large. He's an asset behind the bench IMO.

His Campbell blind spot has been replaced by Kevan Miller.

I believe he told him to have sexual intercourse with himself (not necessarily with those words either)

Four Power Plays for Calgary yet B's managed to outshoot them something like 13-9. Still, bad giveaways all over the ice… team is tight and a bit sluggish—like a wet sponge.

Bad start, but didn't allow a shot against after the Giordano goal. Attempts ended up 21-16 B's in all situations.
