GDT: April 3, 2018 3rd last game, ever, for the Twins vs Golden Knights.

Well it’s here. The beginning of the end of an era.

I’m just not ready.

Markstrom to start.

Boucher out with a broken bone in his hand after blocking a shot.

Leipsic may play tonight.

Motte needs to sit two of the last three or he will need waivers next season.

Hutton still not ready, according to the team, he feels he’s ready.

Be loud if you’re going to the game please.

Wrong game, maybe wrong forum... but I got two tickets for the Arizona game on Thurday. Planned to go with the family, but our son got sick so he and my wife had to stay back in Sweden. My daughter and I will be heading over, but we have two spare tickets.

Section 114, row 12. Face value $250 (for both). If you're interested, send me a PM. Tickets have to be picked up at the arena, about an hour before the game, and payed in cash (stone age, I know). Will probably be offline for about 24 hours, travelling, but will try to reply asap.

Rick Dhaliwal - Hutton's time in Vancouver sure looks like it is up, would be surprised if the Canucks don't at least try and move him at the NHL draft. #Canucks

Now I get why the Twins chose now to announce. The tank was likely dead anyway but has there been any thought to it in the past 24 hours?? It was the only reason left to pay attention to this final week of games, but now who gives a shit. In fact kinda hoping for the opposite and we win out to send them out the right way on a high note. I'd love nothing better than to see us spank the other teams and each finish with 10 points apiece to recapture a glimpse of past glory.

So it was less about thanking fans and vice versa but rather to sway our focus back to winning hockey....speaks to their selflessness and competitive nature. ...tho prob wouldn't be saying this if we were tied with Buff and Zona. ;)

Mostly want good games and a big win on Saturday to trash the Oilers one last time for old time sake.
One more two minute shift ending with a goal would be perfect.
The Sedins have feasted on the Oilers almost as dominately as those 80’s Oilers feasted on the Canucks.
They’ve dominated Edmonton more than any other team and choked out all Oiler hope for the last decade.
The best revenge ever for us long time fans.
We are all Jim Benning.

Make the quitters healthy scratches.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
