Well, hockey fans, theres good news and theres bad news. Lets start with the bad: Remember Niklas Hagan? We traded him two seasons ago? Well, hes scored nearly as many points for his current team, the Dallas Stars, as our entire roster put together. Ouch.
Heres some more: Tonight, the Panthers play the Hurricanes. Those rascals from Carolina are a take-no-prisoners group of mercenaries on skates. If the Panthers dont play strong from start to finish, prepare for total annihilation. But neither of those issues are the real atrocity that we must address, no. The integral dilemma of tonights match comes from a fan blog, who asserted that the snacks lines at BankAtlantic Center (2555 Panther Pkwy., Sunrise) are slow and lengthy. The horror. You can take our talent, you can take our pride, but please, Powers-that-be, do not take away our God-given right to speedily-served, overpriced concessions. Its (sniff) all that we have left.
On a brighter note: The Dolphins are playing worse than the Panthers. Our boys on skates may tire easily, but they arent the bottom-feeders of their division. The Zamboni abandons the ice Monday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $17 to $262. Visit www.ticketmaster.com.
