#ReadThis #TheSunAlsoRises by #ErnestHemingway @simonschuster

Once upon a time Mover and Shaker Rennie McQuilkin told Peachy she would probably like Fitzgerald and gave her the short story Winter Dreams.  Subsequently, she did a term paper on The Great Gatsby and has read everything Fitzgerald ever wrote.  Fitzgerald is God.

Fitzgerald recommended Hemingway to his editor, so there is NO good reason why this has taken us this long!  We have already told you that PBS has a Hemingway special coming up:
We watched it, twice.
Loved.

We start at the beginning: The Sun Also Rises.  Published in 1926, it has obviously proven to be a timeless classic and THIS is what people should be reading in English class, regardless of the politics of the teacher/professor/school and their agenda.  Like The Great Gatsby, it is a tale of the lost generation and also a celebration of The American Dream, which is more important than anything.   It might take place in Europe but all the stars are American.

The characters are in a word phenomenal.  Narrator Jake Barnes and every red-blooded male prays at the altar of Lady Brett Ashley, whom every woman would want to be.  If Lady Brett were alive today she'd be engaged to Tom Brady because of who she is, not because she is like Gisele or Bridget (who rules Blue Bloods along with Willie and Steve.  Remember we think Willie is under the table and if you are confused read Twitter. )

Reading The Sun Also Rises is like eating at The Bull and Bear when it was open and the Waldorf=Astoria was owned by Americans.  Its luxurious richness in quality description, heightened plot, colorful characters and overall quintessential style are to be envied by the English speaking world for eternity.  

A more beautiful era of graciousness and style awaits you.  We loved so many aspects but perhaps what we loved the most was the volley of the conversation in wonderful banter.  This is our favorite racket sport particularly strong on p. 36.

Hemingway's accuracy of knowing The Human Condition is prevalent throughout: "It is awfully easy to be hard-boiled about everything in the daytime, but at night it is another thing." (p.28)

You're not truly woke until you Read This.  And you will wish you could go back to this era without cell phones.  People made plans in Paris and they simply executed them.  Makes sense!  No drama.  No confirms.  How it should be!  Just do it!  Since we all missed out we can go out to Paris in the 1920s in these pages, particularly attractive during a worldwide epidemic where no one can properly go out.  The rent-a-cars also came with a dressed driver.

Bung-o!  Crack open this classic winner.

The introductory words by Patrick and Sean, son and grandson respectively, are the cherry on top of the sundae and we will have to say hello to Sean next time we are at The Met as they were one of the first to want to work with us in 2009 when no one was following.

The Sun Also Rises Has Earned Whom You Know's Highest Recommendation.

https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/The-Sun-Also-Rises/Ernest-Hemingway/9781501121968

The quintessential novel of the Lost Generation, The Sun Also Rises is one of Ernest Hemingway’s masterpieces and a classic example of his spare but powerful writing style.


A poignant look at the disillusionment and angst of the post-World War I generation, the novel introduces two of Hemingway’s most unforgettable characters: Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley. The story follows the flamboyant Brett and the hapless Jake as they journey from the wild nightlife of 1920s Paris to the brutal bullfighting rings of Spain with a motley group of expatriates. First published in 1926, The Sun Also Rises helped establish Hemingway as one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century.

About Ernest Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway did more to influence the style of English prose than any other writer of his time. Publication of The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms immediately established him as one of the greatest literary lights of the 20th century. His classic novella The Old Man and the Sea won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. He died in 1961.

#LondonPeachy #CulturedPeachy #AlbrechtDurer #March2021 @NationalGallery @CreditSuisse THE CREDIT SUISSE EXHIBITION DÜRER’S JOURNEYS: TRAVELS OF A RENAISSANCE ARTIST

THE CREDIT SUISSE EXHIBITION
DÜRER’S JOURNEYS: TRAVELS OF A RENAISSANCE ARTIST 

6 March – 13 June 2021 
Sainsbury Wing
Admission charge 

A major exhibition devoted to German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer opens at the National Gallery in March 2021.

The first significant UK exhibition of the artist’s works in such a wide range of media for nearly twenty years shows Dürer’s career as a painter, draughtsman and printmaker. Most of the exhibited works are displayed in Britain for the first time. 

It is also the first exhibition to focus on the artist through his travels bringing the visitor closer to the man himself and the people and places he visited, through over a hundred paintings, drawings, prints and documents loaned from museums and private collections worldwide.

The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Dürer’s Journeys – Travels of a Renaissance Artist (6 March – 13 June 2021), for the first time, chronicles the Nuremberg-born artist’s journeys to the Alps and Italy in the mid-1490s; to Venice in 1505–7; and to the Low Countries in 1520–1, journeys which brought him into contact with artists and fuelled his curiosity and creativity as well as increasing his fame and influence. 

Major loans include the artist’s Christ among the Doctors, 1506, (Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid), Saint Jerome, 1521, (Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga, Lisbon), Portrait of a Man, 1521 (Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid) and a double-sided painting of a Madonna and Child, about 1496–9 (National Gallery of Art, Washington), which will be shown in the UK for the first time. 

Other lenders to the exhibition include the Suermondt-Ludwig-Museum, Aachen; Albertina Museum, Vienna; the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin; Musée du Louvre, Paris; Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam; the British Museum; the British Library; the Royal Collection; the Fitzwilliam Museum, University of Cambridge; the Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford; and, from New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Morgan Library & Museum. 

In the first room of the exhibition visitors can experience how Dürer’s career progressed in the years following his return to Nuremberg after travelling to the Alps and Italy in the mid-1490s. His Saint Jerome, about 1496, in the National Gallery’s collection, with its detailed landscape and extraordinary reverse will show the huge development in Dürer’s work around the time of that early Italian visit. 

The second room includes some of Dürer’s early studies of human proportion from his visit to Venice from 1505 to1507, during which he recorded his impressions in letters to his friend Willibald Pirkheimer. One of these letters will be featured in this room together with three portraits by Dürer and the great painting Christ among the Doctors, 1506, (Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid.) Two studies of this picture are included among a group of stunning drawings.

In room three, which includes many of the artist’s best-known engravings, we see Dürer return to Nuremberg, where he was employed by the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I, before embarking on a journey north to Aachen where the coronation of the new Emperor Charles V was to take place. He also visited the Low Countries which Charles’s aunt, Margaret of Austria, governed. The room contains the only surviving page of a journal Dürer left of his travels in 1520–1, in which he was accompanied by his wife Agnes and maid Susanna. It records his itinerary, his expenses, and his encounters with people. 

Portraits, including in chalk, charcoal and silverpoint, are featured in the fourth room of the exhibition while Dürer’s observations as he sketched people, animals and townscapes are explored in the fifth, which includes sheets from his silverpoint sketchbook, with some of Dürer’s most vivid and sensitive drawings. 

The artists Dürer met on his travels in the Low Countries are the theme of room six which includes the dramatic painting Landscape with the Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, about 1520, (Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, on loan from the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands) by Joachim Patinir, ‘the skilled landscape painter,’ which Dürer owned. This room also includes the drawing of Saint Christopher, 1520 (British Museum) that Dürer made for Patinir.

The final room is devoted to the period in Antwerp, where Dürer became friendly with the Portuguese merchants’ agent Rodrigo de Almada, who sent him numerous gifts including feathers, coral and two green parrots. Dürer painted a striking and innovative image of Saint Jerome,1521, (Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga, Lisbon), for Almada – a radical departure from a subject Dürer had often represented in both painting and print. The painting, which may itself have been influenced by Netherlandish art, made a deep impression on artists in the Low Countries. 

During and just after his journey to the Low Countries, Dürer experimented with new approaches to the Crucifixion story, perhaps with prints in mind. His representation of religious imagery was by this time strongly influenced by his interest in Martin Luther’s insistence on the essentials of the Christian faith. During his time in the Low Countries, Dürer drew the portrait of the great humanist Erasmus, but it was not until 1526 that he produced his engraving of Erasmus, 1526, (Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam) which was to be his last. 

Dr Susan Foister, Deputy Director of the National Gallery, London, and Curator of The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Dürer’s Journeys – Travels of a Renaissance Artist, says: ‘Dürer’s art knew no boundaries, neither territorial nor intellectual. Through his journeys he came into contact with artists, people and places in ways that fuelled his curiosity and creativity, and that increased his fame and influence. His reputation as the most innovative printmaker of his time preceded him. His constant, questing intellectual curiosity opened up fruitful exchanges with artists in the north and south of Europe. Uniquely for his time, Dürer recorded aspects of his life not only in his art but also through letters and journals. His voice resonates across five centuries to speak to us today.’ 

Dr Gabriele Finaldi, Director of the National Gallery, London, says: ‘Albrecht Dürer’s astounding artistic achievement, his intellectual curiosity, his inexhaustible versatility and his engagement with the great events of his time, make him deeply fascinating to us five centuries later. The first major exhibition to be held on the artist in Britain for 20 years, The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Dürer’s Journeys – Travels of a Renaissance Artist sees a superb selection of paintings, drawings and prints brought together, most of them on view here for the first time.’

David Mathers, CEO of Credit Suisse International, says: ‘We are delighted to be supporting The Credit Suisse Exhibition - Dürer’s Journeys: Travel of a Renaissance Artist at the National Gallery, London. We are thrilled that our clients, employees and partners will be able to experience the artist for the very first time through his travels, the places he visited as well as the many individuals he met.’

The exhibition is organised by the National Gallery, London, and the Suermondt-Ludwig Museum, Aachen, whose Dürer exhibition (18 July - 24 October 2021) will commemorate the 500th anniversary of the journeys the artist made to the city in 1520 and 1521.

Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) is one of the most famous artists of the European Renaissance. He was born in Nuremberg, Germany, where his work remained focused until his death. During his lifetime, Dürer undertook three significant European journeys; along the river Rhine, across the Alps to Italy and, in later life, to the Low Countries. 

Dürer is seen as the archetypal Renaissance artist of Northern Europe. He had unique skills of observation, was a master narrator and a superb technician. He was a polymath - a writer and theoretician as well as a painter and graphic artist. Influenced by the work of Mantegna, Leonardo and Giovanni Bellini, he in turn influenced many Italian artists through his prints.

Dürer explored many questions that preoccupied artists of his time, such as theories of proportion and perspective. He also wrestled with universal issues concerning the meaning and conduct of earthly life, following Martin Luther’s challenges to conventional religious belief.

#NHLPeachy @NHL #WinterClassic NHL Outdoors at Lake Tahoe Set for Feb. 20-21

New NHL Event Features Two Outdoor Games Along the Shore of Scenic Lake Tahoe at Edgewood Tahoe Resort

Avalanche and Golden Knights Will Face Off in Bridgestone NHL Outdoors Saturday on Feb. 20



Flyers and Bruins Will Play in Honda NHL Outdoors Sunday on Feb. 21



Both Games Will Be Broadcast on NBC, Sportsnet and TVA Sports at 3 p.m. ET





 The National Hockey League today announced a new event for the 2020-21 regular season, the NHL Outdoors at Lake Tahoe™, which will feature two regular-season outdoor games along the south shore of North America’s largest alpine lake, on the border of California and Nevada, in Stateline, Nev. Bridgestone NHL Outdoors Saturday will showcase the Colorado Avalanche and the Vegas Golden Knights on Feb. 20. Honda NHL Outdoors Sunday will feature the Philadelphia Flyers and the Boston Bruins on Feb. 21. Both games will be broadcast at 3 p.m. ET on NBC in the United States and on Sportsnet and TVA Sports in Canada. Both games will be played without spectators.



NHL Outdoors at Lake Tahoe™ continues the tradition the League established of staging outdoor games during the regular season, with the upcoming games in February marking the 31st and 32nd such events since 2003.



The rink for NHL Outdoors at Lake Tahoe™ will be located on the lakefront 18th fairway of the golf course at the Edgewood Tahoe Resort, the annual site of the American Century Championship since 1990, and host of the 1985 U.S. Senior Open and 1980 U.S. Amateur Public Links. Set along the scenic Lake Tahoe shoreline, Edgewood Tahoe Resort is a 235-acre, LEED-certified luxe mountain haven overlooking the iconic Sierra Nevada.



The Avalanche, Bruins, Flyers and Golden Knights will each wear their adidas Reverse Retro ADIZERO Authentic jersey for the outdoor event. The Reverse Retro jerseys represent unique and historical moments in each club’s history, while refreshing the color and design combination for an all-new presentation. Since its introduction in November, the Reverse Retro jerseys are among the top-selling NHL items worldwide at NHLShop.com and NHLShop.ca.



Bridgestone NHL Outdoors Saturday will mark the first ever regular-season outdoor game for the Golden Knights and the third such game for the Avalanche. Colorado previously played in the 2016 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series™ (5-3 loss to Detroit at Coors Field) and the 2020 Navy Federal Credit Union NHL Stadium Series™ (3-1 loss to Los Angeles at the U.S. Air Force Academy’s Falcon Stadium).



Honda NHL Outdoors Sunday will mark the fourth NHL regular-season outdoor game for the Bruins and the fifth such game for the Flyers. The game will be a rematch of the 2010 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic®, where Boston defeated Philadelphia 2-1 in overtime at Fenway Park. The Bruins other outdoor game appearances include the 2016 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® (5-1 loss to Montreal at Gillette Stadium) and the 2019 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® (4-2 win against Chicago at Notre Dame Stadium). The Flyers additional outdoor game appearances include the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® (3-2 loss to the New York Rangers at Citizens Bank Park), the 2017 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series™ (4-2 loss to Pittsburgh at Heinz Field), and the 2019 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series™ (4-3 overtime victory over Pittsburgh at Lincoln Financial Field). Honda and the NHL® continue to grow their decade-plus strong relationship, with Honda as the Official Vehicle of the NHL®, NHL’s official automotive partner and most recently, becoming the title partner of the Honda NHL West Division.



A complete history of NHL regular-season outdoor games can be found at records.nhl.com.



More details on the NHL Outdoors at Lake Tahoe™ will be announced when available. NHL Social™ will have exclusive coverage on all social platforms using the hashtag #NHLOutdoors.



Quotes:



“We are delighted to announce the NHL Outdoors at Lake Tahoe and can’t wait to get on site for what undoubtedly will be two thrilling games in a breathtaking setting. Ever since we began staging outdoor games in 2003 and made it a regular feature of our annual schedule in 2008, we have considered myriad non-stadium settings, but they always were rendered impractical because of the sheer volume of demand from our fans to attend. This season, unable to host our usual huge crowds at such events, we will continue our tradition of taking the game and our players back to their outdoor roots when the Avalanche meet the Golden Knights and the Bruins face the Flyers on an open-air rink at the spectacular Edgewood Tahoe Resort.”

– Gary Bettman, NHL Commissioner



“The NHL Outdoors at Lake Tahoe will carry on the annual tradition of taking the game outdoors to a unique setting. Although the atmosphere will be different this year with no fans in the stands, the players relish the opportunity to compete in these marquee events and are looking forward to playing outdoors in February.”

– Don Fehr, NHLPA Executive Director​



“It is always an honor for the Bruins to be chosen to play in one of the NHL’s premier events. Each time we have played outdoors it has been a great experience for our players and fans, and we expect Lake Tahoe to be the same. It promises to be a unique environment which will make for a great TV viewing experience.”

– Cam Neely, Boston Bruins President



“We are excited to be chosen by the NHL to play in such a unique setting as Lake Tahoe. Lake Tahoe is one of the most beautiful areas in the world and a perfect spot for an outdoor game. Although we wish our great fans could be there in person, we know they will enjoy watching what will be a great weekend of hockey.”

– Joe Sakic, Colorado Avalanche Executive Vice President/General Manager



“On behalf of the Philadelphia Flyers, we are thrilled to be able to participate in one of the two outdoor weekend games in Lake Tahoe. In a real ‘Mystery Alaska’ setting, our game versus the Boston Bruins will take place on the shore of Lake Tahoe with the picturesque Sierra Nevada mountains towering above the rink. This will surely be an unforgettable spectacle and we’re very excited to be a part of it.”

– Chuck Fletcher, Philadelphia Flyers President of Hockey Operations & General Manager



“The Vegas Golden Knights are extremely grateful for the opportunity to play our first ever outdoor game in beautiful Lake Tahoe, a truly majestic location for our sport to return to its roots. Skating and playing hockey on ponds, lakes and canals brings back fond memories for all of us who grew up loving the game. We can’t wait.”

– Bill Foley, Vegas Golden Knights Chairman, CEO & Governor



“Having the National Hockey League playing at Lake Tahoe highlights the area’s reputation as a leading winter destination and complements the recreational appeal with a major sporting attraction. Combining Tahoe South’s spectacular beauty with the best hockey players in the world is a natural fit and will create a television viewing experience that can’t be missed.”

– Carol Chaplin, President and CEO, Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority



“Our team is honored to bring the NHL Outdoors at Lake Tahoe to Edgewood Tahoe Resort for a memorable, picturesque event complete with crisp alpine air and spectacular mountain scenery. It will be the ultimate winter wonderland for the players to experience and fans to view in the comfort of their homes.”

– Corinna Osborne, Edgewood Tahoe Resort General Manager



“Bridgestone has proudly partnered with the NHL on its marquee outdoor event for more than a decade, and we’re excited for this tradition to continue in a new way this season. The league’s outdoor games have delivered powerful performance moments inside iconic venues, and the scenic setting of Lake Tahoe promises to be another one-of-a-kind showcase of this sport and its storied history.”

– Philip Dobbs, Chief Marketing Officer, Bridgestone Americas



“Honda and the NHL have partnered together for more than a decade, and in 2021 we are working together to create memorable experiences for NHL fans while enabling Honda to reach new audiences through a shared love for hockey. As the NHL’s Official Automotive Partner in the United States and Canada, Honda is thrilled to sponsor NHL Outdoors Sunday and take hockey back to its roots by competing in a new outdoor venue this winter!”

– Jay Joseph, Vice President of Marketing, American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

#CulturedPeachy #LondonPeachy @NationalGallery THE NATIONAL GALLERY REMAINS OPEN ONLINE WITH WIDE-RANGING DIGITAL PROGRAMME

As we return to digital ways to look at, use and respond to art, the National Gallery will remain open online, continuing to bring the nation’s gallery into the nation’s homes. Through our digital programme, we will be open 24/7, providing everyone with access to great art at anytime, anywhere in the world. 

While the Gallery doors remain closed, art continues to be a source of hope, inspiration and reassurance for many. Since March 2020, we have seen a 1,125% increase in visitors to the Stories page on our website which houses new digital content, online events, and an archive of recent features and films produced in-house. The average time spent on individual painting pages has increased by 71% and the average duration of individual sessions overall has increased by 30% from March 2020, in comparison to the same period the previous year.

Since January 2020, the National Gallery has gained 408,451 followers across all four social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube) bringing our total number of followers to 3,775,680. The Gallery serves a digital audience of over ten million people every year, with a digital reach of hundreds of millions of people.

Since the online events programme began in June 2020, our sessions have been attended by 31,742 people worldwide. During lockdown, we launched online education events for the first time (September 2020) to great success, with around 2,368 participants to date. The majority of attendees have been UK-based but the sessions are also popular with audiences in the USA, Canada, Australia, Ireland and France and even further afield with people tuning in from countries including Peru, Russia and South Africa. 

There has been an overwhelmingly positive response to the online programme with attendees writing in with notes of thanks. The Gallery’s digital programme has provided solace and a chance to connect with art lovers in the UK and beyond at a time when many are confined to their homes. A selection of quotes from the public as below; 

‘I would like to say how much I enjoyed the Talk and Draw. The hour flew by, my mind was held and I feel more human, part of life. I have been locked in as high risk.’

‘I just wanted to thank you for doing them, making them enjoyable and for those who are alone and confined, they must be a great source of encouragement. It’s been great that we have been joined by people from around the world.’

‘This was great fun and really interesting. Thank you! I'm in Bournemouth, with no job, struggling financially, and trying not to use public transport too much. So really grateful to everyone at the National Gallery for providing these online opportunities to learn about art and hear the experts. Please keep it up.’

‘Well done to the National Gallery for keeping us culturally fed in these difficult times!’

Through this period, the National Gallery has continued to create innovative, fresh digital content. November saw the launch of a new curator-led on-demand film of Artemisia. This means that viewers can join exhibition curator, Letizia Treves, on a 30-minute online tour of the five-star show to hear Artemisia’s amazing story and witness the violence and drama of her best-known paintings. The tour costs £8 (free to Members) and can be booked at nationalgallery.org.uk/whats-on/artemisia-curator-led-exhibition-film

The Gallery remains open with digital art you can enjoy under the current lockdown. Exhibition led art talks include a free online event (21 January) where Theresa Lola, former Young People’s Laureate for London, will discuss how Gossaert’s altarpiece in the collection inspired her poem Look at the Revival which was commissioned by the Gallery as part of the immersive digital exhibition, Sensing the Unseen: Step into Gossaert's 'Adoration'. Lola will be in conversation with Gallery Educator Clara Davarpanah. Looking ahead to our forthcoming exhibition Dürer's Journeys: Travels of a Renaissance Artist, Curatorial Fellow Imogen Tedbury will discuss the art, life and times of the artist in an online talk Crossing Borders: Albrecht Dürer’s Renaissance (18 February).

Further art talks centred around the collection include Art and disability (4 February) in which filmmaker and artist Richard Butchins will explore society’s blindness to disability in art. Where we belong (12 February) sees artists and museum professionals leading a highlights tour of the collection for LGBT+ History Month, providing ways to experience the works anew. 

Other forthcoming digital events include; 
Unexpected Views (17 February), a series of monthly discussions about art with some of the most important cultural practitioners today, continues with Harold Offeh discussing a selected masterpiece from the collection with our curators nationalgallery.org.uk/events/unexpected-views-2020
A wide range of events continue online including creative sessions such as Talk and Draw focusing on Paul Delaroche’s The Execution of Lady Jane Grey and Thomas Gainsborough's Portrait of Margaret Gainsborough holding a Theorbo (14 January, 26 February; various sessions January-February); Sketchbook Saturday (21 January) and free art talks Art through words (28 January, 25 February) for blind and partially sighted visitors; Reset and restore (9,16 February and 9 March) sessions for visual art practitioners to reflect on the facilitation and delivery of online creative workshops; and the ongoing Stories of Art course (13, 20 and 27 January and 10 February) 
Hands-on family activities during half-term include Decoding pictures (15 February), a live online tour where families will work together to piece together clues in paintings; Musical tales (16 February) an online musical storytelling event for babies and toddlers; and Story Studio (17 February), a live Zoom session where families can listen to a story and then create a story-inspired artwork focusing on Pierre Mignard’s The Marquise de Seignelay and Two of her Sons

The Gallery has created a weekly series of exclusive online events for its Members too, so they will continue to get even closer to great art no matter where they are. With Members-only previews, priority booking for all events and free access to the curator-led exhibition films of Artemisia and Titian: Love, Desire, Death as well as weekly Members talks, the National Gallery has ensured that everyone supporting our work continues to enjoy close and regular contact to incredible art even when the main doors are closed.

#NewYorkNotes @RecordingAcad JOINT STATEMENT RE: THE 63RD ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS® AIR DATE

"After thoughtful conversations with health experts, our host and artists scheduled to appear, we are rescheduling the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards® to be broadcast Sunday, March 14, 2021. The deteriorating COVID situation in Los Angeles, with hospital services being overwhelmed, ICUs having reached capacity, and new guidance from state and local governments have all led us to conclude that postponing our show was the right thing to do. Nothing is more important than the health and safety of those in our music community and the hundreds of people who work tirelessly on producing the show. 
We want to thank all of the talented artists, the staff, our vendors and especially this year's nominees for their understanding, patience and willingness to work with us as we navigate these unprecedented times."

When was the last time an NHL team played three consecutive games against the same opponent within a regular season?

2012-13 – The Ducks played three consecutive games against the Coyotes from March 2-6, 2013 (ANA: 1-0-2; PHX: 2-1-0) and Stars from April 1-5, 2013 (ANA: 2-1-0; DAL: 1-2-0).

How many times has the NHL seen 15 games played on the same day?

17 – 2020-21 will feature the 18th and 19th instances of the NHL contesting 15 games on the same day (May 1 & May 8, 2021). The 2019-20 regular season featured one 15-game day, which took place on Nov. 16, 2019 – a second was scheduled for April 4, 2020.


Teams
Most Games Played vs. One Opponent, Single Regular Season

14 – From 1949-50 to 1966-67, the Original Six played each opponent 14 times per regular season (Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Montreal, NY Rangers & Toronto). Aside from the first season of the expansion era (10 GP in 1967-68), the most head-to-head games between opponents in one regular season is nine, seen in 1992-93.



Most Games Played vs. One Opponent, Including Playoffs

21 – There have been 12 instances in which a set of teams went head-to-head 21 times in a season including playoffs – the last occurrences of this were in 1964-65 (CHI vs. DET; CHI vs. MTL). The highest such total in the expansion era is 17, which happened three times in 1967-68 when the League added six new franchises (LAK vs. MNS; MNS vs. STL; PHI vs. STL).

Most Wins vs. One Opponent, Single Regular Season

13 – Detroit went 13-1-0 (26 points) against Chicago in 1950-51. In the expansion era (since 1967-68), the most wins against one opponent in a single season is eight, achieved 12 times (last: MTL in 2007-08 vs. BOS).



Most Points vs. One Opponent, Single Regular Season

26 – Detroit accumulated 26 points against Chicago in 1950-51 (14 GP). In the expansion era (since 1967-68), the most points against one opponent in a single season is 17, achieved two times (TOR in 1967-68 vs. DET & STL in 1967-68 vs. OAK).

Largest Sweep vs. One Opponent, Single Regular Season
10 – The Canadiens won each of their 10 games against the Bruins in 1944-45. In the expansion era (since 1967-68), the largest regular-season sweep is eight games, achieved eight times (last: MTL in 2007-08 vs. BOS).



Skaters
Most Goals vs. One Opponent, Single Regular Season
24 – Joe Malone scored 24 goals for the Canadiens against the original Senators in 1917-18, the League’s inaugural season (10 GP). In the expansion era (since 1967-68), the most goals by one player in a head-to-head regular-season series is 16 (Wayne Gretzky: 16 G in 8 GP w/ EDM vs. WIN in 1983-84). The most head-to-head goals by an active NHL player in the same scenario is nine, accomplished two times.



Most Assists vs. One Opponent, Single Regular Season
22 – Babe Pratt collected 22 assists for the Maple Leafs against the Bruins in 1943-44 (10 GP). The only other player to record at least 20 assists in a season against one opponent is Wayne Gretzky, a feat he achieved with the Oilers against two opponents in 1985-86 (21 A in 8 GP vs. LAK; 20 A in 8 GP vs. CGY). The highest such total recorded by an active NHL player is 14, by Sidney Crosby with the Penguins against the Islanders in 2006-07 (8 GP).


Most Points vs. One Opponent, Single Regular Season
27 – Shared by three players in NHL history, for a total of four occurrences: Wayne Gretzky with the Oilers (16-11—27 in 8 GP vs. WIN in 1983-84; 6-21—27 in 8 GP vs. LAK in 1985-86), Bobby Hull with the Black Hawks (11-16—27 in 14 GP vs. NYR in 1963-64) and Henri Richard with the Canadiens (11-16—27 in 14 GP vs. TOR in 1957-58). The highest such total recorded by an active NHL player is 17, by Sidney Crosby with the Penguins against the Islanders in both 2006-07 (8 GP) and 2009-10 (6 GP).



Most Game-Winning Goals vs. One Opponent, Single Regular Season
6 – Frank Mahovlich scored six game-winning goals for the Maple Leafs against the Rangers in 1960-61 (14 GP). In the expansion era (since 1967-68), the most game-winning goals by one player in a head-to-head regular-season series is five (Jari Kurri: 5 GWG in 8 GP w/ EDM vs. VAN in 1986-87).

Goaltenders
Most Games Played vs. One Opponent, Single Regular Season
14 – There are 213 instances of a goaltender playing 14 games against one opponent in a regular season, with Ed Giacomin last accomplishing the feat during the 1966-67 season with the Rangers (14 GP vs. BOS, DET & TOR). In the expansion era (since 1967-68), the most games played in a head-to-head regular-season series is 10, achieved five times during the 1967-68 campaign: Giacomin (w/ NYR vs. MTL & TOR), Glenn Hall (w/ STL vs. OAK), Cesare Maniago (w/ MNS vs. LAK) and Johnny Bower (w/ TOR vs. MTL).

5 – Bill Durnan of the Canadiens was first to achieve this feat in 1949-50 (5 SO in 13 GP vs. CHI) and Terry Sawchuk later did so twice with the Red Wings (5 SO in 13 GP vs. TOR in 1953-54 & 5 SO in 14 GP vs. BOS in 1951-52). In the expansion era (since 1967-68), the most shutouts by one goaltender in a head-to-head regular-season series is three, achieved 27 times (last: Braden Holtby w/ WSH vs. BOS in 2014-15).

How many times in NHL history have teams faced only intradivisional opponents in a regular season?
0 – 2020-21 marks the first regular season in League history in which teams will face only intradivisional opponents. Of note, there were no divisions from 1917-18 to 1925-26 and 1938-39 to 1966-67 when the NHL was comprised of no more than seven teams in each campaign.

How many times in NHL history has there been a division comprised of only Canada-based teams?
0 – 2020-21 marks the first regular season in NHL history to feature an all-Canadian division. The League had a Canadian Division from 1926-27 to 1937-38, but it included the New York Americans franchise in each season as well as the St. Louis Eagles for one in 1934-35.


With the addition of the expansion Chicago Black Hawks, Detroit Cougars and New York Rangers, the now 10-team NHL introduced the American and Canadian Divisions in 1926-27


How many times in NHL history have teams played only within one country in a regular season?
7 – The NHL was comprised of only Canada-based teams in each season from 1917-18 to 1923-24, with the Boston Bruins becoming the first U.S.-based franchise in 1924-25. The League’s first seven seasons did feature instances of postseason games played abroad when non-NHL clubs competed for the Stanley Cup – the five contests between the Montreal Canadiens and PCHA’s Seattle Metropolitans during the suspended 1919 Final took place in Seattle, Wash.



When was the last time the NHL played a regular season without conferences?
1973-74 – The NHL featured 16 teams that season with eight apiece in the East and West Divisions. The League added the Kansas City Scouts and Washington Capitals the next season (1974-75) and clubs realigned into two nine-team conferences, with the Prince of Wales Conference made up of the Norris and Adams Divisions and the Clarence Campbell Conference made up of the Smythe and Patrick Divisions.

How many times have teams been in the same division the season after meeting in the Stanley Cup Final?
8 – Including the Lightning and Stars in 2020-21 (Central Division) there have been eight instances of teams competing in the same division during the ensuing season after meeting in the Stanley Cup Final. This is the first such instance in 40 years.

#NHLPeachy @NHL NHL Announces 2020-21 Regular-Season Schedule

The NHL’s 2020-21 regular season will commence Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2021, with a five-game slate, highlighted by the Tampa Bay Lightning raising their second Stanley Cup championship banner before facing the Chicago Blackhawks at Amalie Arena.

The other four games on the first night of the 2020-21 season include the Pittsburgh Penguins visiting the Philadelphia Flyers; the Montreal Canadiens at the Toronto Maple Leafs; the Vancouver Canucks at the Edmonton Oilers; and the St. Louis Blues at the Colorado Avalanche.

The 868-game regular-season schedule – 56 games per team – will conclude Saturday, May 8, when 30 of the League’s 31 teams take to the ice.

A complete listing of each team’s 2020-21 regular-season opening game is below and the complete 2020-21 regular-season schedule is attached. Start times and broadcast details for all games will be announced when available.


As previously announced, in reaching agreement on the format for the 2020-21 season, the NHL and NHLPA determined that the ongoing closure of the U.S.-Canada border required realignment and the League and the Players also sought to minimize team travel as much as possible by shifting to exclusively intradivisional play. It is the current plan to play games in the home arenas of participating teams while understanding that most arenas will not, at least in the initial part of the season, be able to host fans. However, depending on prevailing conditions both in local markets and across North America, the League will be prepared to play games in one or more “neutral site” venues per division should it become necessary.



Each team in the East, Central and West divisions will play every other team in its division eight times while each team in the North Division will play every other team in its division nine or 10 times.



The top four teams in each division will qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, with intradivisional play in the first two rounds (#1 vs. #4; #2 vs. #3). The four teams that advance to the Semifinal Round would be seeded by their regular season points total, with the No. 1 seed playing the No. 4 seed in one series and the No. 2 and No. 3 seeds meeting in the other.



Formal training camps will begin on Jan. 3. There will be no pre-season games. The seven teams that did not participate in the 2019-20 Return to Play will be permitted to open their training camps as early as Dec. 31.



Notes By Division

Following are notes by divison compiled by the NHL Stats & Information Team ahead of a season unlike any in League history. A complete #NHLStats Pack: Division Notes for 2020-21 is available at media.nhl.com.



NORTH DIVISION

* The North Division marks a return to the NHL’s rivalry roots. The League included only Canadian teams in its first seven seasons (1917-18–1923-24) until the Boston Bruins became the first U.S.-based franchise in 1924-25. 



* This is the first all-Canadian division in NHL history. When divisions were introduced to the NHL in 1926-27, the Canadian Division included the New York Americans for all 12 seasons (1926-27–1937-38) and the St. Louis Eagles in 1934-35 (a result of the original Ottawa Senators relocating). 



* Montreal and Toronto, the NHL’s two remaining founding franchises, will play in the same division for the 41st season all-time and 22nd consecutive campaign dating to 1998-99 when the Maple Leafs joined the Canadiens in the Northeast Division. Ottawa also has been in the same division as Canada’s two Original Six clubs since 1998-99; the Senators have shared a division with the Canadiens for each of their 28 seasons (including 2020-21).



* Edmonton and Vancouver will continue as division rivals for a 41st consecutive season dating to 1979-80 when the Oilers entered the NHL (Smythe: 1979-80–1992-93; Pacific: 1993-94–1997-98; Northwest: 1998-99–2012-13; Pacific: 2013-14–2019-20). They now have been with Calgary for 39 consecutive campaigns dating to 1981-82 when the Flames – in their second season in Alberta – joined the Smythe Division. 



* Fans in Winnipeg are set to revisit several old rivalries. The original Jets were division rivals with Toronto for their final three seasons in Winnipeg (1993-94–1995-96) and were longtime Smythe Division foes of Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver (1982-83–1992-93). 



* Vancouver will renew acquaintances with former division rivals Montreal and Toronto. All three teams competed in the East Division from 1970-71 to 1973-74 (each of the Canucks’ first four NHL seasons) before the League realigned in 1974-75. 



WEST DIVISION

* Los Angeles and San Jose will clash in the same division for a 29th consecutive season since the Sharks entered the NHL (Smythe: 1991-92–1992-93; Pacific: 1993-94–2019-20). With the addition of Anaheim in 1993-94, the three-team California intrastate rivalry continues for a 27th straight campaign. Arizona remains in the same division as the California trio for a 22nd consecutive season since 1998-99. 



* Los Angeles and St. Louis share divisional ties as the Kings and Blues were part of the inaugural West Division for seven seasons beginning in 1967-68 when the NHL expanded to 12 teams. They also were joined in that division by the Minnesota North Stars, who then battled the Blues in the Smythe and Norris Divisions for 16 of their 19 remaining seasons before relocating to Dallas (Smythe: 1974-75–1977-78; Norris: 1981-82–1992-93). 


* Colorado rejoins a division with the three California teams, their divisional foes for their first three seasons in Denver (Pacific: 1995-96–1997-98). 



* The Coyotes and Blues will play in the same division for the first time since 1997-98 – the Coyotes/original Jets and Blues clashed in the Central Division for five seasons (1993-94–1997-98). 



* The West Division includes three teams that have reached the Stanley Cup Final in the past five seasons (STL: 2019; VGK: 2018; SJS: 2016).



CENTRAL DIVISION

* The longest active run as division rivals among teams in the new Central Division belongs to Tampa Bay and Florida, who will play in the same grouping for a 27th consecutive season (Atlantic: 1993-94–1997-98; Southeast: 1998-99–2012-13; Atlantic: 2013-14–2019-20). Chicago and Nashville are next in line with 22 straight campaigns, playing against each other in the Central Division for the Predators’ entire history. 



* Original Six rivals Chicago and Detroit will play in the same division for the 47th time and first since ending a run of 31 consecutive seasons as division rivals in 2012-13 (American: 1926-27–1937-38; East: 1967-68–1969-70; Norris: 1981-82–1992-93; Central: 1993-94–2012-13). 



* Chicago and Detroit, who entered the NHL together in 1926-27, are accompanied in the new Central Division by six teams that either joined the League or began play in their current city in the 1990s or later (TBL: 1992-93; DAL: 1993-94; FLA: 1993-94; CAR: 1997-98; NSH: 1998-99; CBJ: 2000-01). 



* Dallas shares a history of divisional connections with Detroit, playing against them in the Norris Division as the Minnesota North Stars for 12 seasons (1981-82–1992-93) before relocating to Texas for five more campaigns from 1993-94 to 1997-98 – combining for all five division titles in that span. 



* The Lightning contested their inaugural season (1992-93) in the Norris Division, which featured the Blackhawks, Red Wings and North Stars.


* Columbus returns to the Central Division, where it competed for each of its first 12 seasons (2000-01–2012-13). The Blue Jackets had the Blackhawks, Predators and Red Wings as intradivisional opponents over that span. 



* The Hurricanes, Lightning and Panthers were in the Southeast Division together for 14 seasons (1998-99–2012-13). Before relocating to Raleigh, the Hartford Whalers played their first two NHL seasons in the Norris Division with Detroit (1979-80–1980-81). 



* Tampa Bay and Dallas will become the first teams in 40 years to compete in the same division in the season after meeting in the Stanley Cup Final (1980-81: NYI vs. PHI in Patrick Division).



EAST DIVISION
* Boston and Buffalo will be intradivisional opponents for a 50th consecutive season dating to 1970-71, the longest such active streak in the NHL. 


* The Rangers and Islanders are in the same division for a 48th consecutive season since the latter entered the NHL in 1972-73 (East: 1972-73–1973-74; Patrick: 1974-75–1992-93; Atlantic: 1993-94–2012-13; Metropolitan: 2013-14–2019-20). The Flyers join them for a 46th straight campaign dating to 1974-75, while the Devils, Flyers, Islanders and Rangers align in the same division for a 38th consecutive season since 1982-83. 


* The Bruins and Rangers will play in the same division for the 20th time in their storied histories, but for the first time in nearly 50 years. The Original Six rivals were in the American Division together for each of New York’s first 12 seasons (1926-27–1937-38) and in the original East Division for the first seven campaigns of the League’s expansion era (1967-68–1973-74). 


* New York’s intrastate rivalry puts the Sabres, Rangers and Islanders all in the same division for the first time in nearly 50 years. Buffalo played each of its first four NHL seasons in the original East Division, with the Rangers for all four (1970-71–1973-74) and with the Islanders for two (1972-73–1973-74). 

* Intrastate rivals Philadelphia and Pittsburgh will be in the same division for a 22nd straight season and 41st time overall since joining the NHL together in 1967-68 (West: 1967-68–1973-74; Patrick: 1981-82–1992-93; Atlantic: 1998-99–2012-13; Metropolitan: 2013-14–2019-20). 



* Fans in Boston and Philadelphia are set to revisit a historic rivalry which featured several playoff battles in the 1970s between the “Big Bad Bruins” and “Broad Street Bullies”, including a meeting in the 1974 Stanley Cup Final, and, more recently, a Winter Classic showdown and historic 2010 playoff series.



* The Bruins (2019-20, 2013-14), Capitals (2016-17, 2015-16) and Rangers (2014-15) have combined for five of the last seven Presidents’ Trophy wins
