Monday Links: Celebrating the country music award incineration by Backes edition

You think a guy like Backes is content to let a loose puck just be picked up by a Preds defenseman and brought back up the ice? Fuck that. He works harder, outskates the d-man, taps home the insurance, and gets rewarded by stopping using the same method I do when I go skating: Running into the boards at full speed. Hail Backes!
