This is not an attack on SV, but it's this zero tolerance mentality that's dragging everything - and everyone - down.  It's simply not realistic.  People have got to get comfortable with the notion of being around COVID-19 infected individuals.  That's life.  It's always been that way.  Viruses and cockroaches will outlive us all.

This is not an attack on NoiseInsideMyHead 
My grandmother who had 11 kids in ND from 1906 to 1926 never was comfortable when any of us grandkids got the flu.

Not to be crass, but in the end were her fears justified? Did she die prematurely from a contracted illness?

If not, isn't that the lesson here?

She lived to her 90's and all children survived on the farm. They pretty much stayed home, the country school was closed for some time.  The neighbors had deaths from the flu.

ICON closed until AT LEAST July 13th.  So much for getting the NHL on local ice.

Or, maybe...the city is closing the facility TO THE PUBLIC for that long, because the NHL is a go.

Child deaths were common during the Spanish flu.  Great grandparents got a whole new farm as the previous occupants went back to Norway to grieve as they lost all their kids.

It may only be an exhibition game but hockey is back. Flyers up over the hated Pens 2-1 after 1. Game can be seen on NBCSN

Be fun to get more comments in here throughout the upcoming playoffs and get some hockey talk in. The Blackhawks beat the Blues in the tune up exhibition game last night 4-0. Very interesting.

I have not been following the new season very closely. When is it anticipated to end?

My personal opinion, they should have just scrape the season all together and just came back in October. It just seems silly to have such a long break, only have 24 teams participate and then a month between the end of the playoffs and the start of 2020/2021.

That's your opinion and stated points. However, the world needs sports and the players are healthy, it will be unbelievable hockey!

I disagree. Safer to finish out the current season by doing it in a bubble. Who knows what next season will look like. The regular season was almost over which is why only 24 teams are in it. And soon it will be down to 16 teams for the actual playoffs.

Exactly.  With the way things are going, there's no promise that a new season would have been able to start in October.  Plus, as SiouxForever noted, people need sports right now.

It’s been a great day of hockey. Nice to see Toews with a solid game!

So a former CC and NCHC player will become the answer to a really good trivia question ...

Who scored the first NHL goal in the month of August?

Jaccob Slavin.

I don't believe Ryan Reaves got any discipline for taking out Nick Schmaltz.

First Poolman takes a puck to the cheek and requires stitches and wearing a mask then Forbort takes one to the face a little later.

I saw the Poolman injury.

I'd be in a hospital for a month.   Players of lesser sports would be out on their injured lists.   

He was back a few minutes later.  Amazing.

His cheek was the size of a baseball
