News *NESN to Discuss James vanRiemsdyk Tonight*

Tomorrow's game is on NESN - the first of the year for NESN's College Hockey Friday Nights. Saturday's game is on the insuperable NHPTV.

Mike Radja will return to the line-up along with James vanRiemsdyk who is fresh from the 2008 World Junior Championships where he was unable to carry Team USA to a medal even after leading the tournament in scoring. Welcome back guys!

Last Night in the AHL
Darren Haydar and Jason Krog got it done again last night, propelling their Chicago Wolves into first place in their division. Darren was a 1-1-2 for the night and Jason had a goal to continue to pile upon his league leading point total.

Trevor Smith also scored netting his second goal since returning to the AHL and the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

As for tonight look for Ty Conklin to get his 8th straight start and hope to maintain his unbeaten streak against the Tampa Bay Lightning - a team that the Pittsburgh Penguins have not defeated in five years!

The Phoenix Coyotes and Daniel Winnik will continue their northern tour with a stop in Edmonton to take on the Oilers where I'm sure Daniel will hope to continue his recent scoring.

And the Montreal Canadiens will come south of the border to battle in Boston in a game that it would be great to see the Bruins win as the Canadiens have won eight straight. I can't wait to see Kevin Regan start against the Canadiens someday in with that golden 'B' on his chest! The game will be on NESN.

Bryan Muir will most likely see action tonight with his Toronto Marlies against the Milwaukee Admirals. Bryan will hope to improve on his +14 rating and 10 points in 20 games.

Shawn Vinz and possibly Mike Ayers (he's been in and out of the line-up) will suit up for their Charlotte Checkers for a match-up with the Pensacola Ice Pilots which was Mike's last team.

Preston Callander and the Florida Everblades will visit the nearby Augusta Lynx (and I can't believe I forgot that Brian Yandle is now with the Lynx!).

*After the Bruins game, NESN will be featuring a story on James vanRiemsdyk who they are calling a superstar freshman from the University of New Hampshire! Is it Friday yet!?

I'm up to level 46!!! And no, I'm not talking about the World of Warcraft! I'm talking about More importantly than the vocabulary proficiency that I've attained is the fact that I've garnered 19,020 grains of rice on to help fight hunger. That total represents nearly three cups of rice as a cup of rice is comprised of roughly 7,200 grains.
