First up we have a defenseman who really, really doesn't want to get a minus. Nice save, Ian White.

Second, a video from Carnie. I might have linked this before, but this is too funny to not see ... again.

That's it folk. Brad Lee may have something special for later. I don't know. If you're good, maybe. If not ... gametimelinks(at)
