According to several sources on the Interwebz, including one of our faves PPP, today is Hockey Solstice Day. What's that? Well, it's the day in the summer that is equidistant from both the last playoff game and the first pre-season game. It has been 48 days since the Cup was won by Boston and it will be 48 days the Battle of Ontario kicks off the pre-season.
But it's an interesting phrase the PPP authour uses to calculate the midpoint: "[it has been] 48 days since we last saw any playoff action".
We here at BoO would prefer to use a different calculation for the folks at PPP.
