One of the great issues I have with the MSM sports culture is the overriding attitude that the regular season doesn't matter, and only playoff championships hold any meaning. We hear that opinion nearly every day either on sports radio, in opinion columns, or even from the athletes themselves. When they say it, it's almost like a pass-phrase that they know they have to repeat in order to demonstrate their commitment to winning it all for the fans.
Anyways, head on over to IP and reflect for a moment on observations that touch on different aspects of the game we all share, such as:
5-on-3 Penalty Kills
Giveaways that make you go “Huh?”
