Looks like we are set for another game from the bay.
I'll be driving tonight. This is Gareth, aka theStub.
Tonight this is coming live from the bay. Both teams are out for the warmup.
We seem to have a full squad tonight for the Devils.
Smith is out there.
Along with returnee Symonds
This is an administrator announcement:- Whilst its less likely that there will be a huge influx of people watching MNL tonight, as it is a home game, can I please remind those of you who are watching not to manually refresh your screens. MNL updates both the comments and the score simultaneously once every 30 seconds. The more you manually refresh your screens, the more likely it will be that the server crashes and then there will be NO MNL at all for the remainder of the game... Thankyou.
So, looks like 3 full lines of forwards, and 3 pairs on D
We have G aka TheStub updating MNL from his phone live at the bay tonight.. I (Clare) his better half, will be updating with email comments.
Any questions, comments and predictions to firstname.lastname@example.org
there we go! I (Clare) will try to keep email comments in blue, to avoid confusion between my own and G's updates
So yeah, Mr Alex Symonds has returned to the Devils IEHL team.... after been recently shafted by last years EPL champs, Peterborough, in a bid to tidy up their team and actually start winning games... rather ironic methinks that they felt Alex wasnt good enough for them, but G has put him on the Devils bench without him even missing a days practice! Lets hope he does a good job tonight and we shall see how he bonds with the team. Any comments about Alex re-joining the Devils will be posted up!
Zamboni has finished its rounds. Waiting for lights to dim.
Officials are out.
Gareth! What on earth is going on with those goals?!!?! :O I do hope that was not your prediction for this evening!
Panthers are out. Good travelling support. Almost a full block.
Devils are out.
Hi, its Carl in Carmarthen. I predict a 3-2 devils win!!! its the first time this season i think that we have had a full squad out on the ice??? - I will get you an answer from G in a minute Carl but yes, I do believe it is!!
yep, Voth, Smith and Stoney are all on the ice... as far as Im aware there are no current injuries/bans to be aware of!
Apparently G has shuffled the lines tonight.
We are underway
Starting with Smith max and Voth.
So, we got any Panty fans watching tonight? Your comments and predictions are welcome too!
Hill, Jay and Michel on 2nd unit.
