Stop – hockey time!

canadiensIt is officially HOCKEY season. For those of you that are hockey fans, well, you already understand the excitement I feel! I was going to write about the Original 6 but I would be leaving out so many worthy franchises. For those of you that do not follow Hockey well I am sorry. Being a hockey fan is not like a fan of any other sport, I mean we have our own language! EX: Celly, Hatty, Hoser, Puck Bunny and Bucket, need I say more?

red wingsFor me and my house we are Red Wing fans. The winner of 11 Stanley Cups and 24 appearances at the play-offs. Yes we are those crazy fans! My oldest daughter graduated Kindergarten on the day Detroit had a parade for the Wings for winning the Stanley Cup that year (1997) we went to the parade. No I did not miss graduation but we did leave early!

bruinsThe top teams for appearances and their wins are as follow: Montreal Canadiens 24/24, Detroit Red wings 24/11, Toronto Maple Leafs 21/13, Boston Bruins 9/6, Chicago Blackhawks 12/5, New York Rangers 11/4, Philadelphia Flyers 8/2, Edmonton Oilers 7/5, New York Islanders 5/4, New Jersey Devils 5/3 and Pittsburgh Penguins 4/3. In all that is some impressive stats.

I moved this past winter back home to the south. There is flyersnot a close NHL team but we do have the Pensacola Ice Flyers, they are members of the Southern Professional Hockey League. The Ice Flyers name comes about two-fold, 1. a tribute to our heritage for our Naval Air station home of the Blue Angels 2. for the original owner Tim Kerr former NHL player for 11 seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers.

I am very excited to experience this new team of hockey players in my home town, BUT are they ready for me?
