  • It's a Saturday night on the road. Start time is at 6PM. [Post-Dispatch]
  • The nice people at the Blues website didn't have a preview up at the time I put the links together, but said they would have one up later. Click and hope, people. [Blues]
  • This Jeff Gordon isn't mentioned because of the Ducks. Check out the "Around the Rinks" portion. Long live Freddy! [Post-Dispatch]

NHL News:

  • The Miracle on Ice gold medal of Mark Wells has been sold for more than $300K. [Puck Daddy]
  • A guide to booing. [DGB]
  • My recent post was decidedly anti-Ice Girls. The hockey fan in me is even more pissed that the KHL is reaching for a fan swimsuit competition. The stereotypical male in me, however...   [Puck Daddy]
  • The NHL GM meetings will discuss the abomination of minimal pre-game scraps. They'll also discuss some of the experiments attempted during the R and D camp. Let's go, Hybrid Icing! [TSN]

  • Fear the Fin's Enhance Your Experience also covers their thoughts on the Joe Thornton ruling. [Fear the Fin]
  • All the scores from last night's action. [TSN]

  • Star players fighting? I'm for it. [TSN]

Other Stuff:

  • Simple solution to this problem from your neighborhood Cross Country/Track and Field coach: Band-Aids. [Buzzfeed]
  • Prospects passes along some of the members of society's All-Name team. [Banned In Hollywood]
  • Plot twists that could have been. Thank God for Photoshop. [Cracked]
  • Hey, Dr. Frankentweed, keep your eye out for a man with a corpse. [Telegraph UK]


After consulting with the bossman, we've settled on this beauty for today's video. Look how far we've come, Blues fans.


After the Hawks/Pens games, this Boston game is another big test on the young season.
