Game Day

(Photoshop: @isuckatpicking)

We love HOME games; have Liquor Depot deliver in under an hour. Click, pick, sit back and watch the game. 

It is fitting the Oilers are in Wrangler Jeans and Belt Buckle territory tonight as they faceoff against the Nashville Predators. Edmonton has ten players who have never experienced an NHL playoff race where the Oilers are a legit contender, and many Nation readers are also experiencing it for the first time.

Cinch your helmet, tighten your skates, and don't have anything close to your hands that you can throw because your emotions are in for one hell of a ride.

We are in February. Teams have around 30 games remaining and you are officially entering a playoff race.

Tomorrow in Detroit, New York Islanders forward, and Edmonton resident, Jason Chimera will play his 1000th regular season NHL game. He'll be the 309th player in NHL history to reach the mark and only the 10th player from Edmonton and surrounding area.

It is quite the achievement for the Millwoods minor hockey product and I caught up with Chimera earlier this week to discuss reaching the 1000-game milestone.

The boys discussed hockey in Hong Kong, the NHL's top-100 and what to expect in the "second half" of the season.
