I'll be honest, this whole OPEN THREAD sort of snuck up on me. All of a sudden I realized "HOLY CRAP SELF THE FACT THAT THERE ARE MEN'S AND WOMEN'S HOCKEY GAMES AT TONIGHT MEANS WE NEED TO GET THE FIRST OPEN THREAD OF THE SEASON READY THAT REALLY SNUCK UP ON US DIDN'T IT I DON'T THINK THE WARM WEATHER IS HELPING US THINK HOCKEY RIGHT NOW." That's right, I talk to myself by having run on convos at full volume inside my head. It's amazeballs.

Anyway, here are all the important details you'll need to enjoy tonight's games...
