Jo-Va back in a big way

Tonight's game with the Caps is currently in the second intermission with the Canes leading 4-2.

I would use two two word phrases to describe this game so far.




After missing five months with a torn ACL, the Czech Condor is playing his first game back. He has tallied one goal and two assists thus far.

There have been 68 minutes in penalties so far including six fighting majors, a "third man in" game misconduct and another ten minute misconduct penalty.

Things could remain chippy as the two teams will play two more times this week.

When the game is over, a full post.

EDIT -- 9:16 pm. Josef Vasicek has just scored his second goal of the night. 5-4 Canes midway through the third.

EDIT -- 9:42 pm. After blowing the late lead, then battling through a two man disadvantage in the final two minutes, the Canes "forced" overtime. Ray Whitney got the winner, ending this crazy game.

I'll have a proper post in a few minutes.
