Wednesday Links - The Beer Is Colder

Beer is colder when the Blues win. We're on G+ now. Steen is on fire. Tim Leiweke is a crazy person. Injuries. Barnaby and McKee are fucking stupid. Rangers Twitter is pissed. Cards plane trouble. Kitties. And highlights. DRINK. MOAR. BEER.

Oh hi, rest of the league. Our boys are pretty good right now.

And if you're in the Central Division, your team is probably good too.



  • It was a battle, but Alexander Steen did it again, scoring on a late power play with just under a minute remaining to help lift the Blues to a 3-2 victory over the Jets last night. Jaroslav Halak . . . well, he did very well. It's like he's a starting goalie or something. [SLGT]
  • Steen leads the league in goals. He's played a couple less games than the guy below him, a guy you may have heard of . . . Alexander Ovechkin, who is . . . uhh, kinda good. [SLGT]
  • As you may have seen on the "BREAKING NEWS" line . . . St. Louis Game Time now has a Google Plus page. You may want to look out for Facebook changes soon as well, but . . . one thing at a time. +1 us! [G+]
  • Before the game, Hildy noted that the Blues website is getting creative. [SLGT]


  • Scores from last night. You might've heard about one of them. []
  • Tonight, you get four games. But none of them involve the Blues, so fuck 'em, right? []
  • Maple Leafs president (errrrr . . . Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment president) Tim Leiweke is insane. [National Post]
  • Part of the Thomas Vanek salary will still be paid by the Sabres, who did so to get a bit of draft pick control, and even then the Isles hold a lot of the cards. I still haven't figured out how Darcy Regier hasn't been fucking fired yet. [TSN]
  • Flames defenseman and Captain Mark Giordano will be out two months. That's gonna suck for them. Meanwhile, our old pal Lee Stempniak is gonna be out for a bit as well. [Matchsticks & Gasoline]
  • Rob Scuderi has a broken ankle, and the Penguins are acting like they'll miss him. Though I'm not totally sold that they'll miss him so much, but whatever. [Pensburgh]
  • Jaromir Jagr broke a record! Oh wait, no he didn't! Here's a correction! Fuck the Devils! Wait, what? [Puck Daddy]
  • Enjoy this hilarious typo from the Rangers' Twitter account following a goal review on Monday. [The New York Rangers Blog]
  • Jeff Beukeboom, former NHL'er and the father of FORMER Blues prospect Brock Beukeboom, recently put in his two cents on the player safety shitstorm of the league. [Hockey Primetime]
  • The ECHL's Reading Royals will be wearing THESE monstrosities tonight. Scaaaaaary. [Puck Daddy]
  • Professional lunkhead Matthew Barnaby and our old buddy Jay McKee, former Sabres teammates, re-enact Barnaby's 2011 DUI for Halloween. Because that's just fucking smart. This is just not Buffalo's year. [Busted Coverage]


  • Yesterday was National Cat Day. To celebrate, Cheezburger and a car service delivered kittens to certain locales in some highly-populated areas. [Y! / The Sideshow]
  • The Cardinals had plane trouble ahead of their flight to Boston for Game 6. And they had fun with it. [Deadspin]


Fuck it. Watch the highlights again. You KNOW you want to.


Episode 15 of Beyond Checkerdome comes your way later. I actually got to drink a beer during the broadcast. SCORE!
