Yeah, no open bar. Doesn't mean you can't drink, of course.
- Great stuff as always from Brian on Prospect Sunday. It included a GDT of the Wolves/Rampage game, though it looks like most of you missed it for football. [SLGT; SLGT; SLGT]
- Also, we had some stat analysis from CanesAndBluesFan in the FanPosts, including a blast from the past. [SLGT; SLGT; SLGT]
- The Blues have won their first four games. None of these games featured an appearance by Brian Elliott, once thought to be the "#1B" option to Jaroslav Halak and his "#1" status. Could he be traded? Jeremy Rutherford is not discounting that possibility. [Twitter / @jprutherford]
- Tim and I recorded Beyond Checkerdome Episode 13 yesterday, where we talked about the Blackhawks and Rangers games, the aforementioned Elliott rumo(u)r and the Sharks, particularly Tomas Hertl and Joe Thornton's "cock" comments.
- SCORES! Two shutouts out of the four games last night. I'll recap 'em all in a bit. [NHL.com]
- Three games today. The Red Wings visit the Bruins this afternoon, the Oilers meet the Capitals and the Wild(s) visit the Sabres tonight. Who gets on national television? Of course, Buffalo does. [NHL.com]
- Ben Scrivens pitched a shutout in his first start with the Kings, as they beat the Panthers 3-0. THE KINGS WON THE BERNIER TRADE YOU GUYS!!!!1 [LA Times]
- Rob Klinkhammer, who I once saw play when he was with the Rockford Icehogs, scored two goals to pace the Coyotes past the Hurricanes 5-3. [Five For Howling]
- Quack quack, motherfucker. The Mighty Ducks logo and awesome purple and green uniforms were back, there was a pregame ceremony involving the 1993-94 Mighty Ducks team and the Ducks beat the Senators 4-1. The lone Sens goal was scored by former Duck Bobby Ryan, fittingly. [LA Daily News]
- Evander Kane scored two goals and Al Montoya pitched a shutout in a 3-0 Jets victory over the Devils, but the most noteworthy thing to happen was a phantom trip. Mark Scheifele tripped himself, and somehow Stephen Gionta got called for it. [SB Nation]
- Don Cherry says Tomas Hertl didn't know any better. Because he's young? Because he's an ass? Because he's flashy? Nope. Because he's Czech. Oooooooooooo . . . kay. Still love ya, Don. [Puck Daddy]
- The fact that the Blues did not make this Five Most Surprising Teams list is a GOOD sign, trust me. [Puck Daddy]
- The biggest asshole in Fenway last night was this douche in a visor, who yanked a home run ball from a lady's hands so he could throw it back on the field. Fuck you, you dick. [SB Nation]
- A Kansas man was hit by a train. He got up and walked away. NBD. Except for maybe trespassing charges. [Y! / AP]
- I'm never gonna pass up an opportunity at posting a dachshund gif. This was from the Lions-Browns game. [Deadspin]
We've posted stuff from the farm boys in Letterkenny, Ontario before. This time, they have a produce stand.
No wonder some folks think farmers are dicks.
