Here are a few reasons, we can’t wait for puck drop tomorrow night at 7:05 p.m.
1. It’s the time of the year when you get to watch Jonathan Ang drive the net, scoring from absurd angles.
2. Adam Timleck’s physical play along the boards.
3. Logan DeNoble’s work in front of the net…
4. …and Chris Paquette burying the puck.
5. Another season for shorthanded goals…
6. …and Bash Brothers.
7. Cole Fraser sacrificing the body in the name of blocking shots.
8. One-time shots resulting in goals from Matyas Svoboda.
9. We finally get to see Dylan Wells slide across the crease…
10. …and of course, deny shots with that glove.
Happy Home Opener Eve!
