Cali and Kopitar 

October, 11, 2006
The second day of a long road trip is always the best day for me. I get to catch up on my sleep and go about my work like a human being. It's a nice feeling.

The second day of this trip brings me to a match between the Islanders and Kings at the Staples Center. For the record, that's one monster building. There's major development going around the arena that will include hotels and condos and just about everything else imaginable. A silly old hockey writer like me can't understand the whole thing, but it seems like someone is going to make a whole lot of money. As usual, it won't be me!
