Tuesday Links - Cards Lose? Rams Lose? Meh.

I'm not as mad as yesterday about the Cardinals. Wallpapers. Goalie stats. Jets-Blues. The most diverse hockey player ever. There's an app for Halloween kid tracking. And more marching bands. Game day.

Honestly, I'm still getting used to being divisional opponents with these guys.

Cardinals lose? Rams lose? Fuck it, there's Blues hockey on tonight. No one cares!

BLUES NEWS:

  • RealBadRobot's boyfriend Sam comes through with our November wallpaper. Download that shit, yo. [SLGT]
  • CanesAndBluesFan writes about Goalie Stats . . . they're about as good as a coin flip, but there are confidence intervals involved as well. [SLGT]

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • Scores. There were five games, and all ended about as predicted. [NHL.com]
  • Eight games tonight, including one involving a couple Central Division teams in St. Louis. [NHL.com]
  • In his weekly "What We Learned" hit, Ryan Lambert makes his case for Seth Jones being on the 2014 USA Hockey Olympic roster. Tell ya what, Seth Jones scares the fucking shit out of me as a future opponent. [Puck Daddy]
  • Sabres Winger and professional shitbag Patrick Kaleta will not appeal his upheld 10-game suspension. Good. [CBS Sports Eye On Hockey]
  • Speaking of the Sabres . . . after their trade yesterday, they're allowing fans to trade Thomas Vanek nameplates for Matt Moulson ones for free this week. Even if no one should, because Matt Moulson (despite two goals from him yesterday) is . . . uhhh, not nearly as good as Thomas Vanek. [Twitter / @BuffaloSabres]
  • So, Islanders GM Garth Snow pulled off another big trade involving a well-entrenched forward. Can he keep the prize on Long Island (and as a key to the Brooklyn move) . . . THIS time around? [Puck Daddy]
  • And speaking of Vanek . . . yeah, he didn't want any part of the Sabres rebuild. Next in line . . . Ryan Miller, perhaps. [Puck Daddy]
  • Penguins forward and league superstar Sidney Crosby ain't give no fuck about future concussions. So, uh, there. THE LEAGUE WINS! [Puck Daddy]
  • Puck Daddy was on fire yesterday . . . Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson lets everyone know that he's not "some fucking god or something". Y'know what else he is? Not MY 2012 Norris Trophy winner, that's what! [Puck Daddy]
  • Two-game suspension for Martin Hanzal for charging Jeff Petry. But that . . . THAT'S BRIAN LEETCH'S MUSIC!!!!! [NHL.com]
  • The Eastern Conference fucking blows. But we knew that already. [Grantland]
  • Jack Campbell, Dallas Stars "Goalie of the Future" and an American, is a bit of a history buff. This year, his mask will pay homage to the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination, which . . . uhh, kinda happened in Dallas. It's really damn cool, actually. [DAVEART.com on Facebook]
  • During last night's 3-2 loss to the Canucks, Capitals defenseman Steve Oleksy lost the blade on one of his skates and had to basically limp off the ice on one foot. It looked . . . friggin' odd. [SB Nation]
  • The Canadiens desired to be accurate in putting players' names on sweaters, and in the process, they became the first NHL team to do so. Next up . . . six dots for Magnus Pääjärvi, right? [Globe & Mail]
  • Windsor Spitfires forward Josh Ho-Sang is the face of hockey diversity. I'm white as can be and consider myself a genealogical mutt. This guy's got me beat by at least 10 measures. [The Color Of Hockey]

OTHER SHIT:

  • At least Jonny Gomes didn't win it for Boston this time, but still, the Red Sox take a 3-2 World Series lead over the Cardinals back home with them. Guh. [SB Nation]
  • I'm more of a New York Style pizza guy, but J-Mill has a possible GTGT locale in Denver for those that want St. Louis Style. [Westword]
  • Deadspin asks former Wisconsin and three-season NFL linebacker (and plaintiff in the NFL concussion lawsuit) Eric Unverzagt (GOD I LOVE THAT NAME) if he'd do it all again. [Deadspin]
  • Tracking your kids during Halloween trick-or-treating? There's an app for that. [Y! / Reuters]

VIDEO:

RealBadRobot saw my college marching band nerdgasm from yesterday and raised me THE Ohio State University. I don't like tOSU, but they DO have "The Best Damn Band In The Land", and here, they help prove it:

Yeah, their Pirates of the Caribbean was SO much better. But holy fuck, Superman.

Stick around, we've got some game day shit for you later.
