New, comments

As I write this, a deluge of rain is pouring down outside my apartment. Thunder, lightning  — the whole deal. Finally winter is done.

You know what else is done? The Blues break. The Note are back in action tonight against the Islanders. Let's get to the links.

Blues news

  • Blues vs. Islanders tonight. It's on Long Island, so don't forget the early start. [Sporting News]
  • Paul Kariya is closing strong on the 2009-10 season. He's playing with a purpose ... or a guy who is trying to weasel his way into one more contract. [Belleville News-Democrat]
  • The road could be great for the Blues. [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
  • Do you know this couple? I don't know if I'd admit it. [Joe Sports Fan]

Hockey news

  • Wednesday's results. Games we want: Buffalo over Dallas. Check. [Yahoo! Sports]
  • Thursday games. Games we want: Thrasher over Columbus, Minnesota over Detroit (again on principal), Ottawa over Cal and Gary, San Jose over Nashville, and ... St. Louis over New York. [Yahoo! Sports]
  • Oh to be an Avs fan — Colorado fans are already talking about who they're going to face in the playoffs, not if they will make the playoffs. [Mile High Hockey]
  • Like all old people, Mike Modano is afraid of change. [Defending Big D]

  • Matt Cooke is not popular in Tampa Bay.  [TSN]
  • Chris Chelios is back in the NHL. He is twice my age. He is old enough to be my father. He remembers playing in the NHL when ads weren't on the boards. Are you trying to tell me that no one else is good enough to suit up for Atlanta? [TSN]
  • Stealing logos of pro sports teams is never a good idea. Unless you're a high school sports team. [Puck Daddy]
