Sunday Links: Backes called his shot before the penalty shot edition

I have confirmation Backes intentionally banked the puck in off the goalie's skate from two sources: 1) Hearsay 2) Rumor

Blues News:

  • Checklist for the game against San Jose: Aggression? Check. Goals? Nahsomuch. [Post-Dispatch]
  • EJ's back, folks. That didn't look like a one game injury when he left the ice against Detroit, but I'll gladly take it. Side Note: Has it really come to the point where we're celebrating an injury that ONLY keeps a player out one game? Fuck. [Post-Dispatch]
  • A view from the enemy blog on last night's game. [Fear The Fin]

NHL News:

  • The Thrashers are the latest team to be looked at as a potential franchise on the move if ownership situations and ticket sales don't change. [TSN]
  • But they've got a checker who can bury the biscuit: Eric Boulton tallies a hat trick. [Thrashing the Blues]
  • If you know about Vancouver's Green Men, you had to figure they weren't about to let Toronto players forget about waffles. [Puck Daddy]
  • The weekend wrap from Pierre LeBrun sees him talk Fehr, Nabokov, and Boudreau, among other topics. [ESPN]
  • Speaking of Boudreau, it isn't getting any better, as Washington lost again. [Japers Rink]
  • The rest of the scores. [TSN]

Other Stuff:

  • Ever wanted to add some "Benny Hill" to your favorite YouTube video? Now you can. [Benny Hillifier]
  • More from the files of Mario on Facebook. [Dorkly]
  • I know how you feel, students. Finals week is a bitch. [Buzzfeed]
  • If the Arab League boycott's Spielberg, don't they realize that they won't be able to watch Pinky and the Brain? [UK Guardian]
  • After reading this, I gained quite a bit of respect for Daniel Stern. Big spiders cause me to transform into an irrational 3 year old. [Buzzfeed]


Rush: Now there's a good way to make me forget the loss for about 4 minutes.

I'm outta here until tomorrow. Enjoy your Sunday.
