It's Tuesday. Closer to Friday than Monday, but still farther away than Wednesday.

Blues news

  • Blues vs. Linkopings today at noon. Follow along on the Blues Web site. Gotta say, I might have to pull for Linkopings -- I dig their name. [Blues]
  • The Blues Web site has its own preview of the Blues. It's shockingly positive. [Blues]

Hockey news

  • Manny Legace has been cut ... by the Thrashers. I'm hoping he didn't cut himself, that would be sad. Do you think he cried after hearing the news or did he wait until he got in the car so he could put on some Dashboard Confessional and weep on the way home? (H/T Hildymac who is not happy with the news.) [Thrashers]
