Change In TMR Game Time Coverage Tonight

Tonight there is a slight change to the traditional line up here on The Malik Report as George wont be joining us tonight.  

George will not be covering tonight's Red Wings game vs. the Phoenix Coyotes and I will be stepping in.  For those that do not know me my name is Monica and I have been a freelance hockey writer since 2009. Over the summer Paul and I talked and I decided to join the crew here at Kukla's Korner and have been slowly making my name here. 

Typically I wont be covering the Red Wings as a beat writer as that job is very securely in Malik's hands.  I will be covering the National Hockey League as a whole complete with East and West Coast bias, Bias for European players, Canadian players, and of coarse American players.  My bias is not limited to just the Original Six but to any and all expansion teams including those in the sun belt.

I wont become a fixture here on TMR but else where within KK. 

As October goes on I look to become more prominent as I will be done with my marathon training.  For those just reading anything by me for the first time (and if you do not follow me on Twitter @MonicaMcAlister) I am running the International Half of the Detroit Marathon to raise awareness and money for the American Special Hockey Association.  You can check out my page on that if you wish.

Anybody have success loading those streams?  They’re giving me a ‘format not recognized’ error message.

Monica, you do a great daily review and I love reading it in the morning to catch up. Thanks for the hard work.

Thanks all!

Tonight I had some tech issues as midway thru the third my laptop decided it would be funny to make me re write my entire piece I had been working on during the game. Oh well! That is over! 

Wont have a morning skate piece tomorrow as it is homecoming for the kids and I just don’t have the time to re cap all the games from tonight before turning back into PTO mom.

After the marathon on the 20th I’ll have much more flexibility with my schedule as I wont be running 5-13 miles a day.

MY VCR is on the fritz so I will watch the condensed Wings-Yotes game on FSD and comment thereafter. Wedding rehearsal was exhausting.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
