Stay at home when the Heritage Classic roles into BC Place stadium. $93 dollars for poor seating, cold weather and the Ottawa Senators? No thanks says Ben.

Team Daniel Alfredsson vs. Team Zdeno Chara, it should be quite the spectacle. Please pick up your cheese gift basket on your way out the door.
Vancouver Canucks blogger Richard Hodges Love Em Hate Em Canucks hockey blog. He recaps and rewinds the win over the Ottawa Senators. Other than Don Cherry calling out Ron McLean out for hating Alex Burrows this game looked great after 20 minutes. Then it fizzled out. Ryan Kesler was front and centre in this game with two goals. Nick Foligno and Chris Neil did their best Bruins imitation.
