(Saturday Mashup) Goodbye HNIC, Hello Off Season

Say what you will about the commentary of Jim Hughson or Glen Healy (it’s awful), but to wave goodbye to Saturday night HNIC tradition as we’ve known it for our entire lifetimes is going to be a heck of a loss.

Nothing could have hammered that home harder than the closing montage last night.

In related news, congratulations to the 2014 Stanley Cup Champion LA Kings.  Two more Cups in 3 years than the Leafs have in the last 47.

Life’s not fair.
