Fearing a similar outcame as last game, I'd rather be playing a really good team and hope to squeeze out 2 points than expect to win against a lower team.
If they play with some pride and want to end the skid, I'll go with a Wild Win 4-3
(Really glad there's no Pick 'em challenge this year. :P )

Couple of knuckle-pucks for goals.  I'll take him in the current morass.  Kap looks extremely fast and determined with the puck.  I think he is taking the losing personally.  I hope the goaltending (in this case, Talbott) feels the same.

Just now, Jimtown guy said:

It’s nice I finally get to watch a game and so far a good one. My peewee A team took 5th at state. Not what we wanted but they came back strong after an opening loss 

Welcome back to the 'Light Banter Lounge'.  It has been a bit of a roller-coaster since the Holiday - Winning in spite of ourselves, then losing because of ourselves.  We probably 'out kicked our coverage' during the winning streak, but we sure 'sullied the trousers' during the last 12 🙄
