I wonder what that's like...

Blues News

  • Blues do what they need to do: beat shitty teams. [SBN STL]
  • T.J. got fancy and Backes got nasty in yesterday's win. [P-D]
  • Backes took first star honors at Puck Father last night. Bask in it. [Puck Daddy]
  • Halak will be starting Tuesday against the Capitals. I hope he likes Christmas trees, because he might get lit up like one. Buuuuut... if he comes out with a win, we might see a whole new Jaro. You never know with how the Capitals are playing lately. [P-D]
  • I'm only linking this article because I think this person is an idiot. Not only does he say that Arnott and the Blues are having a terrible year thus far, but he cited Bleacher Report to top it all off. Suck less, Larry Seely. [Gather]

NHL/Hockey News

  • Other scores and stories from last night. [USA Today]
  • Your daily Crosby suck-off article. [NHL]
  • The Capitals are supposed to be good. They're loaded with star-power and complemented with the right players. Why are they losing? [The Cheap Seats]
  • Bruce Boudreau might be out as coach and a few Capitals might be traded as a result of this quarter-season funk. [Washington Post]
  • Kari Lehtonen, the Stars stud goalie who has been studly, is on the IR. [NHL]
  • What's going to happen this season? Nobody seems to know. [The National]
  • While most are looking to the future, Gary Bettman sits in his large, spikey chair stroking his cat and enjoying how well the NHL has done thus far this season. Next time, Gadget. Next time. [Standard-Examiner]
  • Kevin Dineen is an early front-runner for the Jack Adams award. [Sun-Sentinel]
  • Former BJ and all-around chode Nikita Filatov is enjoying his second chance in Ottawa. []
  • The Winnipeg faithful are starving for some hockey, as their Jets have played 15 of their first 23 on the road. [CANOE]
  • The NHL has always neglected the Western Conference when it comes to national TV exposure and marketing and this guy is tired of it. I've always agreed, especially with basketball currently absent. If you want to snag new fans (like here in Laker-less L.A.), market the West. [Denver Post]
  • Former NHL linesman Pat Dapuzzo still struggles with head injuries that he suffered in 2008. Great read. [NY Times]

Other Stuff

  • 5 Sports Fans Who Ruined Sports. [Cracked]
  • 10 Awesome Animations Found in Very Unusual Places. Uhh... zoetrope bicycle. Super rad. [Flavorwire]
  • Game Boy case for your iPhone 4. Buy it, dummy. [LOOTIFUL]
