game #1: toronto at florida.
concensus is this game sucks and we're really just waiting for game #2 to start. why the hell does florida have a hockey team? in the words of don cherry: "if this game keeps going this way, we're gonna have to give the #1 star to the zamboni driver."
group discusses tv antennae - who else bought overpriced tv antennae in the 80s?

GAME #1 IS OVER! Florida won 2-0 if anybody cares.
End of game from Montreal - 6-0 win against New York Rangers. Kendra receives call from ex-boyfriend who is at that game and wants to rub it in. little does he know, we are content waiting for Chicago at Vancouver to begin.
