Welcome back hockey, we missed you so!
I won't bore you with too many details as after all it is only pre-season hockey and Brad had a terrific preview earlier today where he goes over lines and things to look for. Safe to say we shouldn't expect too much from the players, refs or heck even your beloved game day thread host as we'll all be in exhibition game form.
Brad will be at the game and live tweeting his thoughts, so you can follow him on the Twitter @DefendingBigD, he'll also be checking in here from time to time. (I'll plug my Twitter to @GameTimeArt just for the heck of it, but I'll warn ya.. I'll be talking about how great the Minnesota Twins are there.)
Also a reminder that there is (hopefully) a way to follow the game and that's by checking out Tampa Bay radio station WHNZ who we believe will be broadcasting the game.
