Five for Friday: Rematches the rage 

October, 15, 2010

My Five for Friday is a look ahead to the five games that I'm going to be watching this weekend. There's a terrific West Coast matchup Friday night followed by four sensational Saturday showdowns. Despite the fact we're just a little more than a week into the new season, four of the five games are rematches from early in the 2010-11 schedule. And in the NHL, a little familiarity can breed a lot of hate.
