Thursday links: Barreling through the week like Cam Janssen through Carey Price edition

Cam Janssen is not a skill player, but he makes the Blues better. I wish I could watch that over, and over again. Oh wait, I can. Awesome.

Blues news

  • Mr. Happy Meal Andy McDonald nets the game winner as the Blues top the Canadiens 4-3. Like I said yesterday, David Perron did work. [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
  • The Blues stay in Canadia tonight to take on Ottawa. I hope Ottawa wears its SNES jerseys. If you need ammo to make fun of the team named after a government, but whose logo is that of a Roman warrior, head over to PPP. [CBS Sports]
  • Paul Kariya, who knows a little something about head injuries, didn't like the Patrice Cormier hit from earlier in the week. [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
  • Did you know, that by sticking around at your job for a long time, you become a role model? Keith Tkachuk is helping David Backes and Erik Johnson — but not Roman Polak, apparently — prepare for the Olympic games. [Canadian Press]

Hockey news

  • Wednesday's results. [Yahoo! Sports]
  • Lots of games on Thursday. [Yahoo! Sports]
  • Jeremy Roenick makes a bold statement: The Blackhawks goaltending isn't very good. [ESPN]
  • If you (NatetheGreat.) liked Neal Peart's HNIC theme, it's now on iTunes. [TSN]
  • Eric Staal, who in his picture on this page looks like he will be going to the Special Olympics, is the new Hurricanes Captain. Also, Manny Legace (among others) is on the trading block as the 'Canes are calling it a season. [TSN]
  • Andy Sutton will have two games to think about how awesome it was to shove Pascal Dupuis' face into the boards. [TSN]
  • The Penguins are dealing with a lot of goalie issues. Reminds me of the 1998-99 Blues who suited up such luminaries as Jim Carey, Rich Parent, and Brent Johnson .... who is on this year's Penguins. Or the 2002-03 Blues that had Tom Barrasso, Reinhard Divis, Cody Rudkowsky, and, you guessed it, Brent Johnson. [Pensburgh]
  • The Flames need some offense. So why does the blog saying they should go after Paul Kariya or Keith Tkachuk. [Matchsticks and Gasoline]
