Kukla's Korner Hockey
The eight day Festival of Lights begins at sundown tonight.
Out of respect to Jean Beliveau and his family, there will be no posts in the KK Hockey section during the funeral.
Hockey news can wait until the funeral proceedings are complete.
If you wish to watch the funeral mass which starts at 2:00pm ET, do so here.

I woke up this morning with terrible, lower-back pain which is a first for me.
The pain is the type that takes your breath away at times with a misstep but hopefully I just slept wrong.
No matter, I am around but moving kind of slow so updates will be a bit behind today.
I am getting old!
Want to do some Black Friday shopping but avoid all the mayhem?
Amazon.com has sale which ends tonight, so take advantage of those deals.
Added a new banner on 11/29 which runs now thru 12/6.
It's also a great way to help out KK since I receive a small commission for every sale used through the link.
Thanks and happy shopping.
Wishing all KK members, readers and followers on Twitter the best on this day.
Enjoy your time with family and friends and cherish the moments spent with them.
My plan for today is a morning update then the rest of the day relaxing and munching on a cajun turkey with all the fixings.
Friday, back to a regular hockey day for me.
My plan for Thanksgiving Day is do the normal morning update, although it may be a little later than usual.
After that, it is couch time with turkey, football and perhaps a short nap.
There is one NHL game on Thursday, Edmonton at Nashville at 8pm ET and of course if anything big happens in the hockey world, I will certainly cover it.
Otherwise, I will see you on Friday.
Last night I won the BoltDraft/KK fantasy game thanks to Rick Nash.
I am declining (and will do so if I win again) the $50 and after talking with the guys from BoltDraft, the money will be rolled over to next Tuesday's game, making the prize $100.
You will read more about that as we get closer to the date.
DFP delivers ads to Kukla's Korner and millions of sites world wide....
Here in the USA it is Veterans Day and in Canada it is Remembrance Day.
No matter what country you live in thank a veteran, not only today but every day.
If you missed the news earlier, start here and I agree with Westhead and I did not even include the "jersey ads" in the main story since I felt Collins was talking in general terms.
Yet it has become a hot topic of the day elsewhere.
