NHL Morning Papers: Hockey Night in Canada

Tonight is the first real night of HNIC in Canada this season and I couldn’t be more excited. As written about it before by Illegal Curve’s Neil Rockman, the CBC has made a variety of changes this season. Ron MacLean will be stationed at the CBC headquarters with Don Cherry in order to allow for the duo to pay closer attention to all the other games going on on a Saturday night. Additionally, the pregame show has been re-worked and the Satellite Hotstove has been tweaked. Regardless of all these changes, when I turn on the television at 6pm CST time this evening I will hear the classic HNIC theme song and just sit back and enjoy the best night of the week for hockey. With the Leafs/Habs and Flames/Canucks being the doubleheader, I recommend you do the same.

On to the morning papers:

For Illegal Curve, I’m Richard Pollock.
