Sex Scandal Free Night -- Devils Visiting MSG

Thank goodness for the Rangers/Devils tonight. It will take my mind off all the recent stories about questionable October/April romances of public figures that have been cluttering up my television screen, the Internet, and newspaper front pages.

Proof that the lesson of Steve McNair's ill-fated choice in women has not been learned. . .

We've got some interesting battles tonight. It's a big game, so big that the network that doesn't follow hockey called it the Thursday Night Game of the Week.

Rangers/Devils -- Nothing like a division rival's first visit of the season.

Tortorella/Lemaire -- Battle of Stanley Cup winning coaches.

Rangers Youngsters v. Devils Youngsters. The Rangers have received publicity about their young defensemen but the Devils also have some quality youths as well.

New Look Rangers v. Defensive Minded Devils. Rangers are outscoring Devils by 1.5 goals per game.

and let's not forget, of course, the renewal of old acquaintances. . . .

Avery v. Brodeur -- both trying to recover from slow starts. Brodeur is one shutout away from tying Terry Sawchuk's career record of 103.

Most of all, I am looking forward to some simple straightforward in-your-face hockey without the taint of sex scandals. And on that I think we can all agree.

Right? Sean? Marty?

Did I say something wrong??

Ah, geez.
