That was a decent game. Refereeing was odd at the end! Rangers come out on top 3-2. My 3 stars: Rupp, Lundqvist, Giroux. Thanks for stopping in and taking part in the Live Blog. Back to usual ways tomorrow. Don't forget to vote for COTW and get your 3rd jersey entries in!
The more I see the Flyers sweaters on the ice, the better I think they look. I think it's a good choice making them the 3rd jersey for next season.
The last jersey collection of the day comes from Canucks fan Connor.Connor gets his jersey numbered with his own name on a few of these. What are everyone's thoughts on that? I hear some people say it's stupid because you don't play for the team. I say it's ok because it's fun to see your own name on a NHL jersey. Thoughts?
Here we get D3troit1388's jersey collection.I always liked the Wings' Classic jersey, but not enough to add it to my collection. I really like all of the pre-Edge jerseys in this collection. I wonder if he got the Islanders new 3rd jersey for $13 last week?
CBC just reported that Detroit is really pushing for the Classic next season. Washington is also a possibility. New York's Yankee Stadium being the leading candidate for 2014.
Flyers HAVE to get the next goal because Bobrovsky looks bad...really bad!
Justin has the entire Avs Edge jersey set. As well as a pre-Edge jersey signed by many players. He also has a jersey that I am looking to get, but I can't find it anymore, the Canucks 40th anniversary jersey.
The Rangers looked pathetic in the first 25-30 minutes of this game and now they have come on strong and lead 3-2!!!
Phoenix Coyotes concepts (by Brandon C.)Here's my COTW nomination for the day! I really like these and the leaping coyote logo looks pretty good as a primary crest. Nice work Brandon.
Rupp ties the game at 2! He came to play tonight.
I guess I'll share my jersey collection now.Obviously this one is going to be Leafs heavy. My favourite of the collection is the game used #59 Keith Aulie Leafs jersey. My jersey collection is always available by clicking the banner on the right.
3rd period is underway and here are a couple of Flyers concepts from Glen.I think the combo of original and current Edge jerseys are pretty cool. However, I'm not sold on the different shades of orange on both jerseys.
Here is Stephen's jersey collection.It features Penguins jerseys, including on of my favourites, the "Sunday Golds". Also, that Czech Republic jersey I believe was a free giveaway from certain Penguins games just before the 2002 Olympic games.
After 2 it's 2-1 Flyers.
CSKA KHL concept (by Luis)A classic jersey for a classic team formerly known as "the Red Army". This is the team known for playing the Habs to a 3-3 tie back in the 70's. Could have used this concept a couple of months ago for the CSKA ReDesign.
No comments in over 90 minutes. You guys still there?
Brendan's jersey collection.This one includes Devils jerseys, including a home, pre-Edge road, and Edge retro sweater. The main piece is the signed Brodeur jersey!
Rangers come right back with one. 2-1, they needed that because they looked dead!
2-0 Flyers. Giroux with a beaut!
Here is Alan's jersey collection.I love the yellow Canucks sweater. I was very close to buying one this Christmas. The Jets home jersey seems to be most popular this season!
1-0 Flyers! Brayden Schenn. It's been a tight game, Rangers better start working 10x harder!
Here's Tyler's jersey collection.Cool note, he ordered the Preds jersey from Shop.NHL.com and it came without a Reebok logo or wordmark on the back. Also, he's a Leafs fan in Edmonton. That's right, we're everywhere!
Where should next season's Winter Classic be? Who should be the opponent?
Penn State concepts (by WinnipegJets96)From what I know, Penn State's football unis are known as simple and classic. While these do look good, perhaps simple and classic would be a good way to go for these concepts. Simple like the Lightning or Leafs.
Kyle is in the process of stocking his jersey collection with Kings jerseys.Personally, I'm looking for the current purple and gold retro jerseys that the Kings have worn the last couple of seasons.
Check out Jay's Christmas gift.An authentic Winnipeg Jets home jersey! Love it! I'm very close to becoming a collector of only authentic's. I'm really getting pissed with Reebok's stupid cheap games they play.
Rochester Americans concepts (by Alan)Alan took his DHL entry and turned it into the Americans of the AHL. My favourite part of the concepts is the use of the larger yokes used with the American flag.
End of the 1st period and there's still no score. The next jersey collection comes from Kevin, who works for the Flyers Team Store and is at the ballpark right now selling over priced Reebok merchandise.Obviously his collection is Flyers heavy and seeing as he works at the team store, jerseys are readily available to him.
Winnipeg Jets concept (by Torin)What ruins this pretty good concept is the terribly pixelated logo. Also, red socks? Perhaps it's like the Bruins wearing yellow socks?
Who is going to win tonight? Score?
I just noticed that the Flyers pants have a thick orange stripe. I thought they were going to be solid black.
Might as well do a Rangers jersey collection now. This one comes in from Tommy.I love the obscure #36 Zuccarello 3rd jersey!
Phoenix Coyotes concept (by Jack)Jack goes with a really classic striping pattern and numbers. He then uses the wordmark on the front. Nice work, I think if the "leaping coyote" logo was used on the front this would be a much better option as a 3rd jersey instead of what they wear.
I like that the sang both anthems. I think the same should be done for the Stanley Cup Final, regardless.
Giroux looks like he's on his game tonight!
And our first jersey collection comes from WinnipegJets96
Here's the next competition on HJC!Click on the 3RD JERSEY COMP page for all of the details.
CBC just showed Laviolette's morning game speech. A little less colourful than what you get on HBO.
What do you think of the new look HJC? I tried to keep it clean and simple.
