Ugh. Again.

BLUES NEWS:

  • The Blues played like shit but still ended up having a chance to win at the end thanks to Brian Elliott, who came off the IR for this one and stopped 44 of 47 shots. Instead, a 3-2 loss in NashVegas. Some dipshit recapped the game. [SLGT]
  • The opponents' view was . . . yeah, just a bit happier. [On the Forecheck]
  • As mentioned, Elliott is off IR and now the Blues are carrying three goalies. Is this the beginning of the end for Martin Brodeur? (Yeah, probably.) [Puck Daddy]

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • Four scores that were not seven years ago. And one of 'em was . . . well, THAT one. [NHL.com 12/30/14]
  • Have to make sure no one plays while the Winter Classic is going on, so . . . uhh, eleven games tonight. [NHL.com 12/31/14]
  • Your intermission entertainment at the Winter Classic? Billy Idol. FUCK YEAH, MAN. [Puck Daddy]
  • Looking at the kind of teams that are more prone to hot and cold streaks. [Puck Drunk Love]
  • The Winter Classic start time may be moved back tomorrow due to . . . too much sunshine. Yep. [USA Today]
  • If the Devils want to trade Jaromir Jagr, he seemingly would have no problem with it. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]

2015 WORLD JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS:

OTHER SHIT:

  • Well that's a rather unfortunate name . . . or is it fortunate? Guess it depends on your view. [Deadspin / The Concourse]
  • Never park your car next to a salt storage facility, I guess. [Y! / AP]
  • If you're reading this, you might like to drink. And tonight is the last night of the year. So, chances are you'll be hung over. Here are some tips to help you NOT be AS hung over tomorrow. [NPR / The Salt]

EVERYBODY! EVERYBODY!

BluesMay, my wife, has links duty tomorrow and Friday. Send her stuff, especially Vlog Brothers/Mental Floss videos:

And look for Episode 67 of Beyond Checkerdome very late in the week, likely Friday. It was recorded last night. It was fun. Sorta.
