Friday Links - Bad Special Effects & Too Many Cooks

And that Tarasenko guy . . . yeah, he's pretty fucking awesome right now, eh.

Siete. Consecutive.


  • Despite their best efforts toward the end of the game, the Blues pulled out a 4-3 victory over the Devils at home. The streak is now up to 7. J-Mill, what say you? [SLGT]
  • The win came despite seeing Ian Cole get fucked on THIS non-goal. He'd later assist on Tarasenko's showstopper, though. [Puck Daddy]
  • Here's how the folks at In Lou We Trust saw things. [In Lou We Trust]
  • The NHL's first star of the night, according to Puck Daddy? Yeah, figure it out. [Puck Daddy]
  • Another showstopper from Vladimir Tarasenko . . . well, I guess you can't say the Devils didn't try to put a body on him this time. [SLGT FanShots]
  • Joe Yerdon has the GIF of said showstopper on this one, via the master (mistress?) of hockey GIFS, Steph aka @myregularface. [SB Nation]
  • Before the game, Josh Cooper posted this interview he did with David Backes recently. [Puck Daddy]


  • Ten games started last night. They all ended. With scores and shit. [ 11/06/14]
  • Five games tonight, and apart from that Capitals-Blackhawks matchup, it's a bunch of shit, really. [ 11/07/14]
  • Brendan Shanahan wrote a letter to his younger self over at Derek Jeter's website. (S/T to Marcus E. Pettersson) [The Player's Tribune]
  • Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp will miss three to four weeks with a lower body injury. [Puck Daddy]
  • Speaking of injuries to #ConferenceIII forwards . . . the upper body injury to Wild(s) forward Zach Parise is actually a concussion. Oh joy, here we go again. [Star-Tribune]
  • Maple Leafs forward Carter Ashton failed a drug test, so he'll be sitting out for 20 games. That's more beer for us. [Puck Daddy]
  • Speaking of the Leafs . . . they played the Avalanche(s) in Denver yesterday, and during the game, Daniel Winnik had to be stretchered off after an awkward hit and fall. Hope he turns out okay. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • The lawyer of suspended Kings defenseman Slava Voynov says his client has had his rights infringed upon. [Puck Daddy]
  • That stunt David Leggio pulled last week to stave off a 2-on-0? Well, if another goalie does that, he gets booted from the game. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]


  • My wife is sad because Benedict Cumberbatch is off the market. Good thing I brainwashed her into marrying me, I suppose. (S/T to Kate) [BBC]
  • So, we're now at more than several people saying Roger Goodell lied about Ray Rice. Smoke, fire, all that. [Deadspin]


Finishing off our video theme for THIS week--MST3K--we look at five instances where the movie director just didn't give a motherfuck about special effects:


And then . . . Adult Swim was NOT a video theme this week, but this was too good not to share. (S/T to TerrapinKen, who said that like a train wreck, he could not turn away from this . . . and I see why):


I don't have a video theme for you all for next week, so guess what? Let's make it another week of MST3K.

Anyway, J-Mill takes over for the weekend. And you should treat him right:

And come back later for Episode 59 of Beyond Checkerdome, where our Tarasenko Boner couldn't particularly be hidden.
