As a Rangers fan, I feel compelled to keep you all abreast of the recent development that Henrik Lundqvist is day-to-day with an injury and Cam Talbot is the presumed starter tomorrow against the Flyers.

Oh Boy!!!! BSU - UAH Week and it could be the Flyers' Matt Read against the Rangers' Cam Talbot. It doesn't get any better than this! :D

It looks the dastardly Beavers are bringing cold weather to town! Weather.com is predicting a low of 27 for Fri.Night/Sat.Morning. They show that the record low for 10/25 is 27 set in 1909 and the record low for 10/26 is 28 set in 1942.

Okay, so if we really want to push the BSU-UAH Rivalry, BSU Alum Matt Read and the Flyers will take on UAH Alum Cam Talbot and the Rangers tonight. Talbot has been named the starter for tonight with the Rangers, and if you get it, the game will be on the NHL Networks Alternate Channel, at least according to DirecTV.

So BSU and UAH played each other in 19 games over the careers of Read and Talbot. Talbot was in net for 13 of those games and BSU went 12-0-1 in those games. Matt Read had 12 goals and 8 assists in those 13 games.

Hopefully Read will break out of his scoring slump tonight!

Tonight's NYR-PHI game is also a GameCenter Live sample game.

Meanwhile, I'm physically ill that I have to root for the Rangers.

Good article about Cam Talbot's "unlikely road to the NHL"
http://www.nyrangersblog.com/2013-articles/october/cam-talbot-s-path-to-the-nhl-was-unconventional-but-well-earned.html

I'm rooting for him tonight. Hopefully he has a great NHL career ahead of him

Unfortunately, Cam lost: 2-1. To make matters worse: Read scores a shorthand goal in the 1st. Feh.

Matt Read with another goal and assist tonight! :)

Talbot did stop 25 of 27, and judging by Ranger fans on Twitter, they were impressed with some of the saves he made. Rangers can't score for him, Lundqvist, or anyone right now.

The game brought to mind the 2009 Matt Read show.

It was nice hearing the good UAH publicity from the announcers during the game in present tense rather than past tense.

Those games are why I started calling him "that **** Matt Read" to Danton, who just laughed and shook his head.

I just really want the guy to be successful. Anything that makes our old and new league look good is okay by me.

Just watched and listened to the internet broadcast. What an embarassment. One of the least professional broadcasts I've ever watched. You're in the WCHA now, raise your standards. This doesn't cut it. I feel sorry for the Huntsville players. Don't the idiots talking realize that the only way most of the families of the Huntsville players get to watch their sons play is via the internet. Their sons have worked their asses off to get a Divison I scholarship and you make a mockery of it. I feel really, really bad that they have to watch and listen to that crap. At least they can look forward to the away games.

PS Niagara is not the only CHA team to get an at large bid in the NCAA tournament. You of all people should remember the final CHA tourney and that Huntsville won it. Bemidji received an at large bid and both CHA teams were placed in the same Regional. Do some homework. Embarassing. You shouldn't be on the air.

I know it's hard not to come off as "homer" announcers but at least make a effort. My favorite was when Bemidji scored an the announcer said " i don't know who scored but does it really matter!'.

I am half of that broadcasting crew, and I accept your criticism. We had zero flow last night whatsoever. I am doing the broadcast tonight and will take whatever criticism you have for me. I'm coming out of the radio world (off for three years), where roles were easily defined and commentary was more enjoyable.

I'm sorry that it was so terrible, from the microphones to the execution.

ETA: Did I say that Niagara was the only at-large team? I meant to say that they were the only at-large team to get in before the tournament bids started. I know that Bemidji was in Fort Wayne, because I was as well, broadcasting.

Congrats to ex-Charger Talbot for beating the Wings tonight :(. I didn't even remember he played for you guys until I looked it up after thinking, "Who the * is this guy?" :p.

Hoof Beats for the week:
http://uahhockey.com/blog/2013/10/30/hoof-beats-halloween-extended/

And a new commitment: Cam Knight, a defenseman at Lawrence Academy in Massachusetts. That's four so far (three for next season).

I wonder if Corbett will switch it up this week and have Guerriero start Friday.

He deserves the start.
