Tuesday links: Home again, home again edition

The Blues are back home tonight. Are the home woes gone?

Blues news

  • At 7 p.m. tonight at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, the Blues will welcome the Blue Jackets to town. For the love of God, I hope this team wins at home. [CBS Sports]
  • T.J. Oshie hopes to break out under new head coach Davis Payne. [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
  • Prior to Oshie de-teething Keith Tkachuk, Walt had never lost any teeth in the NHL. [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

Hockey news

  • Every game last night was decided by one goal. Technically. The Calgary/Colorado game was a shootout. [Yahoo! Sports]
  • Tuesday's schedule. [Yahoo! Sports]
  • While you were sleeping, Alex Burrows of the Canucks went off on referee Stephane Auger. Burrows claims Auger was out to get him, and the facts kinda back up Burrows. You have my word, that this will be a huge hockey story. [The Province]
  • The Kurtenblog Twitter went off on Auger. Good times. [@KurtenBlog]
  • I was going to link to this because of the blurbs about teams dealing with too many goaltedners, and then I read how Scott Burnside claims Curtis Joseph is a good player, but not a Hall-of-Famer. You sir, are greatly mistaken. As someone who watched CuJo carry the Blues in the playoffs (and the Oilers), the man who is fourth all-time in wins in, without a doubt, in. [ESPN]
  • The Islanders are better this year. It's amazing what a No. 1 pick that can score goals (and other pieces added to the puzzle) can do for a franchise. [Lighthouse Hockey]
  • The Maple Leafs penalty killing is historically bad. [Behind the Net]
  • As the Kovalchuk turns. Ilya, shit or get off the pot. I'm not a Thrashers fan, but I'm tired of hearing about this. [Bird Watchers Anonymous]
  • Since I feel like ranting today (damn you Burnside), how in the fuck can 29-year-old Mike Danton be allowed to play college hockey? Dude was a pro ... shouldn't his amateur status be gone? I'm all for letting him into the school to get an education and if someone wants him to play hockey, that's fine but he shouldn't do both. He's more than a decade older than his peers. [TSN]
  • Ed Jovanovski, better known around these parts as the man Matt Walker bloodied, has been suspended two games. [ESPN]
  • Taylor Hall is better than Tyler Seguin — for now. [TSN]
  • Theo Fleury, still trying to figure out how to use the internet, apologized for ripping the Flames on his blog. [TSN]


Other news

  • Sometimes the crazy fan makes sense. [Cracked]
  • The Simpsons predicts the future. [Best Week Ever]
  • From Classic 17, a wife transcribes her husbands sleep talk. I have a friend who talks in his sleep. We once had a conversation and I had no idea he was sleeping until he asked, "Is that a Game Boy?" [Sleep Talkin' Man]


First up, BleedBlue09 wants to relive a time when the Blues actually won at home.

Second video, this is just bananas. A well-done mash from way out of left field. Barney Fife approves. (Side note: I may be the only person under 25 that has seen every episode of The Andy Griffith Show — black and white episodes only.)
