    I have fiber and cable coming into work. The cable is Spectrum, 25mb up and down. The fiber is WOW (formerly Knowlogy), 25mb up, 300mb down. I have fiber at home, 150mb/150mb. In my experience, fiber is much faster and more reliable than copper. Frontier FIOS, down here, offers 1Gb/1Gb service. The fastest I've seen Spectrum is 300mb/300mb.

    Thomas Greiss saved 31 shots on goal and the team blocked 27 more as the Jackets were shutout in Columbus. Casey Cizikas had 2 break away goals for New York, who lead the Met. Artemi Panarin hit the post and went just wide right on 2 excellent scoring opportunities for the Jackets. Cam Atkinson missed a wide open net with Greiss out of position and could not captialize on another rebound when Greiss made a fantastic save when Cam could...

    Brian Boyle scores his first goal as a Pred off a beautiful drop pass from P.K. Subban as Nashville takes care of business at home against Montreal. Ryan Hartman score the lone goal in the 2nd period and Thomas Tatar tied the game for the Habs early in the 3rd. The Boyle scored the game winner and Viktor Arvidsson add an insurance goal with 9 minutes left. Pekka Rinne ended Nashville's 3 game losing streak with 34 saves on the evening. ...

    The Lighting have 90 points with 24 games left in the season. Toronto, who would be in the lead or tied for the lead in every other division in the NHL, trail the Bolts by 15 points.

    Viktor Arvidsson and P.K. Subban scored in the 2nd period to make up a 2 goal deficit to Detroit in Nashville, last night. However, the Preds were unable to get anything by Jimmy Howard in the 3rd and drop their 3rd straight, this one without getting a point.

    How good was Columbus' defense, last night in Nationwide Arena? Washington had only 7 shots on goal after 2 periods of play. Sergei Bobrovsky made 13 saves in the 3rd to complete the shutout. Anthony Duclair got the Jackets on the board in the 2nd, Nick Folingo scored with 3:47 left in the game, and the Bread Man added an empty netter with 10 seconds left. With the win, Columbus pulls within 2 points of the Capitals for second place in...

    The Pacific Division leaders came to Tampa and got roasted. (Get it? Flames? Roasted?) :banana: Nikita Kucherov had a goal and 3 assists to lead the Bolts. Point scored his 33rd goal of the season and Stamkos his 30th. Gourde, Paquette, and Cirelli also scored for Tampa Bay, who have now won 3 in a row.

    On the return trip of the back to back, home and home, St. Louis won its 6th straight game by downing the Preds in Nashville. Down 3-1 going into the 3rd, Juuse Saros allowed Vladimir Tarasenko's second goal of the game, but Roman Josi, Viktor Arvidsson, and Filip Forsberg all scored in the third period to force overtime. However, Tarasenko completed his hat trick 16 seconds into OT. Arvidsson's goal was his second of the game. Alex...

    Nikita Kucherov had 2 goals and an assist. Steven Stamkos collected his 29th goal of the season, Braydon Point his 32nd, and Ryan Callahan scored to bury Miami in Sunrise. The win completes the Bolts sweep of the Panthers during the regular season. Roberto Luongo entered the game in the 3rd, for Miami, and passed Patrick Roy for the most games played by a goalie. Louis Domingue won his 10th game in a row, setting a franchise record and...

    After Cody Eakin scored to give Vegas a 3-2 lead midway through the 3rd, Cam Atkinson scored 2 goals to get the win in the land of card games and slots. Cam scored with under 6 minutes to play and then capitalized on a penalty when Paul Stastny slashed Artemi Panarin with 2:56 to go. Panarin had tied the game 2-2 in the second with his 21st goal of the season. Josh Anderson opened the scoring for the game. Thanks to Pittsburgh's losing...

    St. Louis extended their winning streak to 5 games at home, yesterday afternoon. The Blues took a 3-1 lead into the 3rd. After the Preds pulled their goalie, Ryan Johansen scored and extra man goal, but Nashville could not close the gap. Ekholm scored the other goal for the Preds. Dunn, Tarasenko, and MacEachern scored the Blues goals. With Winnipeg losing to Ottawa, Nashville could have regained the lead in the Central. As it...

    The LA Kings ... er ... Tampa Bay Lightning extended Pittsburgh's losing streak to 5 games in Amalie Arena, last night. The Pens are now 0-4-1 in the streak. The Bolts stopped their 2 game slide and are now 5-3-2 in their last 10 games, avenging their last regulation loss in Pittsburgh last week. The best part of the match, was when Ondrej Palat received a penalty for tripping Sidney Crosby in the 2nd period. 20 seconds later Anthony Cirelli...

    I hate everything ESPN, except for the game broadcasts. But of what I have seen, he is way to over the top for me on TV. I listen to very little sports talk radio, anymore, so I've never heard his radio show. coldweatherfan, he's not on 620/95.3 WDAE (the ESPN affiliate down here). Are you listening on line?

    You could not read the numbers on the jerseys. Adidas produces this crap all of the time. I remember Louisville had basketball uniforms that you could not read the numbers of, especially on TV. The complaints on Twitter are many, of which I am included, and I've heard emails and phone calls to the Lightning are numerous and vastly negative. When did the Tampa Bay Lightning become the LA Kings?

    Craig Smith's 1st period goal held up until 13:55 in the 3rd. Then Dallas alternated goals with Victor Arvidsson to force overtime. 43 seconds into OT, Ryan Johansen scored the game winner for Nashville at home.

    Savard and Sedlak put the Jackets up 2-0 after 1 period. Arizona tied it up in the second before Josh Anderson scored the game winner late in the period. Boone Jenner added an insurance goal in the 3rd.

    The Bolts threw 32 shots at Jordan Bennington and not one got by him. Braden Shenn dribbled the puck past Vasilevskiy 4:31 into overtime for the St. Louis win. The Bolts offense has left the building. I knew it could not last forever. They still got a point out of the game.

    With Toronto's wins Monday and last night, they are now even with the Bolts in games played. Tampa Bay still leads the Leafs by 12 points. Lot of hockey left to be played, though. The Blues are in town, this evening. St. Louis is 7-2-1 in their last 10 and have won 3 in a row.

    I am giving Baldacci a rest for a little while. I figured out the previous book way too early, but I like the Amos Decker character. I'll go back. Giving Michael Connelly's Bosch series a try.

    I disagree. The main stream media created and fostered what is called fake news. Anybody remember Dan Rather? Social media has done quite a bit to exposed it as such, as well as exploit it.
