The quiet before the storm...
The quiet before the storm...

Wow, Canucks. That was a nice little line fight at the end of the 2nd. Don't worry, it's not like any team has recently lost a Playoff series after being up 3-0. Oh, wait.


Blues News:

  • Oshie hasn't missed practice; EJ hasn't been talking smack; nothing's been sold although there's speculation. All's quiet around here. [PD]

Hockey News:

  • I think Puck Daddy just found a new way for me to wake up everyone. And maybe a new ringtone or two. [The Awl]

  • Mustaches for a cause. Great day, do I love hockey. [Puck Daddy]

  • If you lose a bet, you should pay up like this Av's fan who had to eat a worm. I think Poor College Student would rather eat a worm than have on a 'Hawks jersey for his FB profile. Just speculating. [Puck Daddy]

  • One Ranger fan did not appreciate Bruce B's comments about the Garden. I have a really tough time with Capitals "fans" who have no idea who Dale Hunter is - his name is in the rafters! Real Caps fans are good people though. [Some Like It Blue]

  • Well, we've all thought about doing that. [Puck Daddy]

  • Bryzgalov would rather go to the KHL than play in Winnipeg. [Puck Daddy]

  • Bettman doesn't think Thrashers will be leaving Atlanta. [11alive]

  • If you could create a new nickname for a team, what would it be? The WHL might be using Tide. [Buzzing The Net]

  • Three Stars give you a snapshot of last night's Playoff games. [Puck Daddy]

  • Two blowout losses? Ain't no thing but a chicken wing. [The Hockey News]

Other Stuff:

  • Red Rover was the neighborhood game of choice over in my neck of the woods - all the way through our senior year picnic. Some kids in New York may not be allowed to play freeze tag or wiffle ball at SUMMER CAMP. For shame, NY, for shame. [ny daily news]

  • Well, bacon challenges like these might be why kid's don't play outside. My logic may not be sound, but I'm still annoyed at the 'no wiffle ball at camp' thing. [instructables]

  • Photoshop has created a monster. [Chicks With Steve Buscemeyes]


This is how you compete in a wheelbarrow race. And in life, generally.
