Blues win in the 'Peg. Ovechkin good. Blackhawks-Flyers rivalry . . . LOLOLOL. Media mittenstringers. Heritage Classic and Stadium Series hopefuls. Crawford, M. Staal out. Razorblade croissants. And #Iggy4Lyfe. Victories are cool.

Approximately what Ondrej Pavelec was doing when he allowed the goal to Alexander Steen.

Have fun with your shitty team and negative Fahrenheit ACTUAL TEMPERATURES, Winnipeg. #TRUENORTH

BLUES NEWS:

  • A decent performance by Brian Elliott and getting two softies through the sieve that is Ondrej Pavelec proved the difference in a 2-1 Blues road win over the Jets. What say you, ActualWretchedCyborg? [SLGT]

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • Twelve games last night. I dunno if you've heard, but that Alexander Ovechkin fella sure is good at hockey and stuff. [NHL.com 12/10/13]
  • Three games tonight. Apparently, one appearance between two teams in the Stanley Cup Finals three years ago is enough to make a rivalry. Fuck yourselves in the ear, NHL. You too, NBC. Same, NBCSN. Jesus H. Shit. [NHL.com 12/11/13]
  • Who is the mittenstringer of the Canadian MSM hockey media of 2013? Let the folks at PPP know. Plenty of candidates to be had. (For the record, I submitted Ken Campbell, and not without reason. Fuck that guy.) [Pension Plan Puppets]
  • Dion Phaneuf got two games for boarding Kevan Miller. He earned that one. But more relevant to our cause . . . one of those games? Against the Blues. [NHL.com]
  • The Jets may be hosting a Heritage Classic in 2016. And the Coyotes want to host a Stadium Series game. As I say about the Blues . . . fill your own fucking building first. [Puck Daddy]
  • Corey Crawford will sit 2-3 weeks with a lower body injury. So I guess Antti Raanta is about to show why Corey Crawford is well overpaid. [Chicago Sun-Times]
  • Wanna be a Sabres coach? Bench Ville Leino, apparently. Ted Nolan has taken that step . . . but really . . . why did you do it now? [Puck Daddy]
  • Remember how I said "Marc Staal" and "Concussion" were two words the Rangers didn't want to hear in the same sentence? Welllllllll . . . there you go. This also might suck for Team Canada. [Blueshirts United]
  • That Quebec Minor-Pro player that got the major gash on his face? Well, check out his face now. IT'S FRANKENSTEIN!!!!! [Puck Daddy]

OTHER SHIT:

  • Never get the croissant from Dunkin Donuts. If you're going to a donut shop, GET THE DONUTS. JESUS FUCK RAZOR BLADES. [Y! Odd News]
  • I heard this clip a few times, and none of those times did I hear anything other than "Gayhawks". Yep, fire this asshole. [Deadspin]

VIDEOS:

A couple . . . first, a bunch of really awesome bike tricks. Like, REALLY awesome. (S/T RealBadRobot):

Then, this had to go up because I have such a boner for Jarome Iginla . . . he returned to Calgary for the first time since being traded by the Flames last season. And it was emotional. And it was awesome.

#Iggy4Lyfe

You have one more day this week to send me shit:
