Tuesday Links: Luck be a Fabbri tonight

Lucky bounces, Shatty shines, hurling, cocaine and more.

Wait, did I just score?

Sorry if I seem distracted.  Turkey apparently just made an honest effort at starting WWIII, so I've been focused on other things.

Seriously though, a NATO ally just shot down a fucking Russian military jet.  This is a big enough deal that it might be worth a minute of your time to familiarize yourself with the details.

Anyway, the show must go on.

Blues News:

  • It wasn't always pretty, but the Blues found a way to win a back and forth effort against a tough Buffalo squad. Justin42 blasts out a recap like a Turkish air-to-air missile. [STLGT]
  • Considering the posts they hit and the dumb luck goal Fabbri scored, I feel fortunate that we got the win.  How do the Sabres feel?  Recon the enemy perspective on Die by the Blade.  Just don't invade their airspace. [DBTB]
  • Read about how the Blues got 'revenge' against the Sabres last night for that 'loss' we had against them last week.  [Rant]
  • Shattenkirk was named the NHL 3rd start for last week.  Nothing like celebrating return from an injury with a nice points streak. [Blues]
  • Shatty finally feels 'like himself.' [STL Today]

Hockey News:

  • 6 other games last night.  LOL Nashville. []
  • Only 2 games tonight.  You're cheering for Ottawa.  []
  • Puck Daddy has 3 stars from last night. No Blues. [Puck Daddy]
  • Petty awesome father-son moment caught live. [Puck Daddy]
  • Brad Marchand scores on a sweet play that would make a hurler proud. [Puck Daddy]
  • Hockey players have a thing for sweet snow. NHL to start cocaine testing in light of results that show an increase in sucking the blow among players. [Puck Daddy]
  • Is former Blues d-man Kris Russell overrated, or a top pairing guy? [Sportsnet]
  • Bryan Trottier writes a letter to his 10-year-old self in a neat piece. [Players' Tribune]
  • New power rankings.  Blues climb a couple of spots. [Bleacher Report]

Other crap:

  • I know that we don't usually put serious world shit up here, but this is a big deal folks.  [NBC News]
  • All natural?  Don't bet on it. [Cracked]
  • Speaking of hurlers, they can teach hockey players a thing or two about fighting. [Deadspin]
  • Your beer of the day is UFO White, in honor of Turkey giving zero fucks about flying objects which violate their airspace. This unfiltered wheat is refreshing with a complex spiced addition to a traditional wheat taste. [Untappd]

Song of the Day:

Your song of the day is 'This Means War" by Avenged Sevenfold.  If you read the NBC link, you'll understand why it's appropriate.
