Wednesday Links - Minnesota's So Dead, You Guys!

These guys did pretty well in the third period last night. - Hannah Foslien

Actually, they may be, but they won a game. And other links and stuff and things. Including . . . JURASSIC CATS.

Winning the first two games at home in a series . . . it is so, SO vital. Just ask the Colorado Avalanche(s), San Jose Sharks and St. Louis Blues, man. IT'S, LIKE, INCREDIBLY FUCKING CRUCIAL, YOU GUYS.

BLUES NEWS:

*FART NOISE*

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • The Canadiens took Game 3 at Centre Bell to nab a 2-1 series lead over their archrivals, the Bruins . . . but I think everyone has the sense that the Habs don't have the series TOO much in hand. [Eyes on the Prize]
  • Maybe I should post Ilya Bryzgalov stuff more often in links. He picked up a 19-save shutout in a 4-0 Wild(s) victory over the Blackhawks in a game that was scoreless through 40. THE WILD(S) ARE SO DEAD, YOU GUYS. (Actually, yeah, they still might be, but whatever, they took one. And Fuck Chicago.) [Star-Tribune]
  • One game tonight . . . Penguins at Rangers, in what will be the Rags' fifth PLAYOFF game in eight nights. Yes, I find that to be incredibly ri-Goddamn-diculous, and I'm a fan of a team that played eight games in 13 days to finish the fucking season. [NHL.com 05/07/14]
  • Not a damn clue why I forgot to link this yesterday, but . . . the Hurricanes fired Kirk Muller on Monday, and the team's new GM--Ron Francis, if you don't recall--will start over with someone new. [News & Observer]
  • Meanwhile, new beginnings are ahead in NashVegas, as the Predators tabbed Peter Laviolette to be their new head coach. [Predators]
  • Speaking of coaches . . . the Jack Adams will go to Patrick Roy, while Jon Cooper and Mike Babcock tell people they were up for the award too. [Puck Daddy]
  • Kerry Fraser tells us, among other things, that the famous (or infamous, depending on how you look at it) "Flying V" play from The Mighty Ducks was . . . onside, contrary to popular belief. [TSN / BarDown]

OTHER SHIT:

  • Dodger Stadium is one of the most perfect structures in baseball. But it took a lot of hard work to make it a reality over 50 years ago. Some of these photos are just magnificent. [Gizmodo / Southland]
  • Dude crashes plane and left the crash unhurt. But that may not be the weirdest thing here. I mean, this is fucking creepy, right? [Y! / Reuters]
  • It's safe to say NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is . . . not a very well-liked person. His Twitter chat yesterday pretty much confirmed that. (Hell, I technically participated. I don't care for him either.) [Deadspin]

VIDEO:

Imagine Jurassic Park, except with house cats. Well, imagine no more. It's . . . JURASSIC CATS. (S/T to Kate):

WORST. KITTIES. EVER.

Links? Videos? Other stupid shit? I'm all ears:
