On the 27th October 312 AD the battle of Milvian Bridge was fought near Rome. The two men contending for control of Rome and the Empire were Constantine, who controlled Gaul, England and parts of Germany and Maxentius, who controlled Italy, Spain and Africa.
It happens the two were brothers in law.
The day before the monumental and pivotal battle, Constantine saw a flaming cross in the sky, taking I as an omen, he had his men put a cross on their shields and banners.
Full of strength at what their commander had seen, Constantine’s men won the battle. Maxentius drowned crossing a bridge over the Tiber.
Rome would soon be unified under one ruler (only Licentius remained in Constantine’s way.)
Constantine would spend the ret of his reign Christianising his subjects.
He converted on his deathbed, becoming the first Christian Emperor, in 337 AD.

I am pulling for the Sharks cuz they are my home team. I am a Vancouver fan at heart though.
were is vancouver in the poll???
Canucks all the way!!!
If Tanguay returns, my money is on Colorado.
If not, it’s my Wings all the way!
I vote Detroit.My favorite team,the Blackhawks are in last place.Oh well,nowhere to go but up.
Unfortunately I couldn’t fit all 16 teams on the poll, so I filled it to the max.
The Canucks? No Bertuzzi = No cup Plus Cloutier is hurt.
Devils just passed them up for 5th place
I’m hoping the Sens beat Philly at least Devils only 2 points out of the division lead.
does this poll ever suck.
Only one Canadian team did not make the playoffs (Edmonton) and you included only one. For shame!! (just teasing - i don’t really care . . . )
Oh - watch for some Manitoban players . . .
Winnipeg-born Mike Keane of the Vancouver Canucks – a three-time Stanley Cup champion – and Arron Asham of the New York Islanders, who hails from Portage la Prairie.
Shane Hnidy from Neepawa and Churchill-born rookie Jordin Tootoo will be playing with the eighth-seeded Nashville Predators, coached by Dauphin’s Barry Trotz. Also Toronto Maples Leafs goaltender Eddie Belfour, born in Carman and maybe even his backup Trevor Kidd, from Dugald. Not bad for a nothing prairie province . . . .
