Moose sweater retirement done; Ronnie's on deck.

The New York Rangers retired Mark Messier's #11 sweater in a very emotional ceremony last night in Madison Square Garden.

Two weeks from tomorrow, the Hurricanes will be retiring the #10 sweater of Ron Francis. Today, the team announced the specifics of the ceremonies.

I'm shocked that tickets are still available to this game.

Anyway, I've already promised Jenn and Andy that I will be crying like a little girl as the sweater goes to the rafters. I've been guessing that its spot will be directly above our heads, behind the north goal, right beside the 2002
Eastern Conference Champions banner. That's just a guess, though. If so, I'll be able to get good pictures of it.

Tonight, the sizzling Preds come to town for the penultimate Western Conference showdown. On Sunday, the Blues will be here for a matinee, putting an end to our interconference play.
