Thursday Links - Division-Leading Deuce Crown

Admittedly, I'd be a shit-ton more pissed about last night's results if the Blues didn't lead the division by about two and a half games. So let's click on things.

An iron man streak means there's going to be years and years of Bouwmeester Face.

Well that wasn't fun. Fuck Chicago, though.


  • The Blues lost 4-0 to the Blackhawks in a game that was bad enough for Ash to give a full GIF recap and for me to compare a troll to a Red Wings fan in the comments. [SLGT]
  • Looks like Vladimir Tarasenko had a good view of the game. [SLGT]
  • The loss means that the Blackhawks now own the Conference III Title Belt . . . [III Communication]
  • . . . while the Blues now own the Conference III Crown of Shit, which the Blackhawks had a record run of holding, ironically enough. [III Communication]
  • 2013 Blues draft pick Zach Pochiro, the kid born in St. Louis, signed an ELC with the club yesterday, as widely expected. [SLGT]
  • There's a new "Miller Time" t-shirt courtesy of the mad genius of twoeightnine (a Sabres fan, as fate would have it). Snag one and save some coin by entering a promo code. [SLGT]
  • Oh, and Episode 35 of Beyond Checkerdome went up yesterday. It was a pretty full day, and I had a couple beers. And don't forget to answer our question of the week! [SLGT]


  • Four games last night. You know one of them. [ 03/19/14]
  • Nine games tonight. One marquee matchup out west (Ducks at Sharks), but keep an eye on that Stars at Flyers game, which could be interesting. [ 03/20/14]
  • Paul Ranger left the Maple Leafs-Lightning(s) game in a stretcher after getting boarded by Alex Killorn last night. Didn't look pretty. [Puck Daddy]
  • Are Blues season ticket holders getting the right bang for their buck compared to other teams? The answer could surprise you as a Silver Seven reader delved into the subject. (S/T to DanGNR) [Silver Seven]
  • In his weekly Power Rankings, Ryan Lambert takes on the Rangers and Martin St. Louis, team owners, "underrated players", spending habits, expansion, the Bruins and dumbass homophobes . . . or, basically, he takes on all comers. [Puck Daddy]
  • The Ducks have had a rough go of it lately and now they'll be missing Cam Fowler for 3-5 weeks with an MCL sprain, which really won't help things for them. [Ducks]
  • Infrared hockey pictures are fucking cool, man. [Puck Daddy]
  • Great news out of Saskatchewan . . . Tim Bozon, the son of former Blues forward Phillipe Bozon, is out of his doctor-induced coma and is out of intensive care. [Global News]
  • Apparently Lindsay Lohan had written out a list of guys she fucked at some point, and apparently one of them was former Wild(s), Rangers and Ducks forward Aaron Voros . . . which probably shocks the hell out of everyone, perhaps even . . . Aaron Voros. [Puck Daddy]
  • The KHL officially announced its' plans to take in teams from Sochi, Tolyatti and one of the best club teams in Europe, Jokerit from Finland. This wasn't a well-kept secret. [R-Sport]
  • Somehow, a fan made it onto the ice at the Air Canada Centre yesterday. Don't ask me how. [Puck Daddy]
  • A teenager was hit by a puck at a Belfast Giants game and required stitches about five and a half years ago. Now, she's suing. Yep . . . NOW she's suing. [Belfast Telegraph]


  • This man is a fucking miracle worker. Shit like this just doesn't happen on the final puzzle on Wheel Of Fortune every night. [Deadspin]
  • Sometimes, there's a good reason for a woman to torch someone's car. Her boyfriend cheated on her. Her mother just died. The motherfucker rear-ended her sweet Camaro. This one . . . well, no, I'm gonna say this is fucking stupid. [Y! Odd News]


Only one today, but Goddamnit is it great . . . the Sharks signed a kid with a heart condition to a one-day contract and gave him basically the best day of his life Tuesday. You're gonna cry, I almost guarantee it. (S/T to @ChrisAhner):

That . . . is . . . SO awesome.

Well, that'll do it for me this week. J-Mill has your weekend. Now you be nice to him, you filthy animals:
