The 2011 Kraft Hockeyville festivities are now in full swing.
Parents have packed the stands here at Robert French Memorial Stadium and are taking pictures of their children on the ice, where former NHLers Kris King and Patrick Lalime are running drills.
We're also about 45 minutes away from the arrival of the most prestigious trophy in all of sports, the Stanley Cup. It will be present during a four-hour party, where Newfoundlanders can have their picture taken with the Cup and get autographs from NHL alumni.
Be sure to check in with NHL.com throughout the day.
I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
