Game night is one of the most memorable times of the year for many.
With more than 50 games on the calendar, it’s always a crowd pleaser.
But what about the games that don’t involve actual flyers?
Here are the best free slot and lightning games to get you into the spirit of game night.
Flyer Game: Flyer’s Game with the Flyer source The Hockey Hall Of Fame game has long been regarded as the premier game of its kind.
For the second year in a row, it features the top goalies in the NHL and the best players from around the world.
So when the NHL Awards were held at the Royal Canadian Opera House, the league decided to do something a little different.
For a few days, every game featured the same goalies and forwards from each of the three teams.
The games would be played in Toronto, Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary.
But this year, instead of using the same goalie and forwards, the game was split into two parts.
In the first part, the best goalies from each team battled it out against the best in the world, while the top-ranked players from each club battled it to the end in the second.
That meant the best athletes from each country battled it on the ice.
The winners were the NHL All-Star Game MVPs.
The loser was eliminated.
But even if you missed out on the All-Stars game, you still had a chance to see some of the best play-by-play in hockey history.
For some of these games, you might have missed out.
And that’s okay.
