50MC’s HDIC Preview
Live from Campbellton, New Brunswick… it’s Hockey Day in Canada! Today is CBC’s World Series. They have been preparing for this since last year’s HDIC, and they usually put on a pretty good show, aside from somehow finding space for a Sidney Crosby human interest story. Anyways, the day starts at noon where they are live from a remote hockey village in Toronto. Then at 3 we start with the hockey:
3pm: Les Habitants du Montreal @ Ottawa Senators – I will take the Habs in this game. The Habs have been awful of late, and the Sens have been playing much better hockey, but they still stink. I really do believe that Alex Kovalev got the message and will have an inspiring performance today. Mike Comrie and Chris Campoli make their Ottawa debuts tonight. In other news: will Hilary Duff make her way to Ottawa? Will she get along with Carrie Underwood?
7pm: Canucks @ Maple Leaves – I’m going to go with the Canucks in Overtime. Sundin with the game winner. Final score: 9-8. Wellwood has a four-trick.
10pm: Flamers @ Oilers – After a very forgettable montage of the day’s events with shots from all across Canada celebrating the day, we move to Edmonton, where I am taking the Oil. They need the game more and I’m not a Calgary fan. Hemsky is going to break the single game points record tonight.
