If Hitch ever puts Joakim Lindstrom over Dmitrij Jaskin again, I may as well bash my face into a steel rail. Repeatedly.

BLUES NEWS:

  • Speaking of Jaskin, he scored the game-winner in the Blues' 2-1 victory over the Winnipeg Phoenix Glendale Arizona Seattle Coyotes Easter Eggs Sasquatch Supersonics. Game recap DEBUT time . . . it's Justin! [SLGT]
  • Before the game, Jori Lehtera returned to the lineup after a few games off with concussion symptoms. We're gettin' the band back together! [SLGT]
  • Also before the game, Robb looked at the Blues and penalties . . . mostly, how they're doing on PP's and PK's. [SLGT]
  • Can the Blues beat the Blackhawks in a seven-game series? Uhhh, yeah, of course they can. So, the question really should be "WILL they?" (Because there's virtually no question of whether or not they'll have to.) [SLGT FanPosts]

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • Nine games last night . . . all with different numerical outcomes, some of them favorable. (Especially one.) [NHL.com 02/10/15]
  • Three games tonight. NBCSN is televising Red Wings-Penguins and Capitals-Sharks, but NOT televising what's basically the ONLY rivalry of the three being played tonight . . . Canucks-Blackhawks. Which says something about Wednesday's games. RIVALRY WEDNESDAY, GUYS. [NHL.com 02/11/15]
  • Stars forward and absolute fuckstain Antoine Roussel has already been called for an in-person hearing regarding a cross-check to the throat of Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid. Throw the book at the motherfucker. [USA Today / For the Win]
  • Boston College's women's team making the BC men's team look like shit, Northeastern's resurgence and Robert Morris' likely march to the Atlantic Hockey title highlight this week's NCAA Hockey 101 from Ryan Lambert. [Puck Daddy]
  • Ethan Bear of the Seattle Thunderbirds (my wife's favorite major junior squad) is looking to boost his draft stock on a talented WHL frontrunner. Here, he answers questions. [Y! / Buzzing the Net]
  • From center ice . . . yep, Roberto Luongo gave up a TERRIBLE goal here. (But if you looked at the scoreboard, you'll see it didn't cost the Panthers much.) [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • Wild(s) forward Jason Zucker will miss basically the rest of the season with a broken clavicle. Ouch. [USA Today]
  • Also, Oilers forward Taylor Hall will miss four to six weeks with what is termed as a "Lower Leg Injury". What's the acronym for that, LLI? [Puck Daddy]
  • Remember that media timeout injury Flyers goalie Steve Mason suffered? Well, it's gonna keep him out two to three weeks. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]

OTHER SHIT:

  • Jon Stewart is leaving The Daily Show soon. Man. I'm old enough to remember when Craig Kilborn hosted TDS. [NPR / Monkey See]
  • Remembering the chess victory by IBM's "Deep Blue" over human chess master Garry Kasparov, which happened 19 years ago yesterday. [io9]
  • This is pretty much the only way to get a live deer off a dead one it's locked up with, without killing the live one . . . by stunning it. Nice work, folks. [Y! / AP]
