Tonight, Chicago rolls into Nashville for its first defense of the Conference III Belt of the 2014-15 season — and Nashville gets its first shot at the strap in the new campaign. The Hawks and Preds met for the Belt three times last season, with Nashville winning twice.
Tonight, the Minnesota Wild defend the Conference III Belt for the first time since winning both ends of a two-in-three set with the Avs to start the season. Their first Central Time challenger? The Dallas Stars, who will try to add the Conference III Belt to their Precog Stanley Cup.
It’s finally that time of year again. The leaves are turning, the air is beginning to get a little brisk, and the Conference III Crown of Fecal Matter is fresh, odorous, and steamy. For the uninitiated reader, the infamous S— Stetson was introduced last season to be the yin to the Conference III Championship Belt’s yang.
The Winnipeg Jets ended last season with the S— Lid, losing to Minnesota, and they therefore begin the season with the fresh Fecal Fedora resting untidily atop their flow and occasionally dribbling down their faces. However, it’s a new season. The record book is reset. Winnipeg can divest itself of the Merde Millinery and regain their pride—or shamefully retain it until a matchup with another Conference III foe later in October.
