Jaxx wins it for the Blues on a fucking screamer, other links, and hockey players answer some tough questions.

"You're a fucking idiot, Ondrej."
"You're a fucking idiot, Ondrej."

Top shelf, where momma hides the cookies. From the neutral zone boards.

Ondrej Pavelec is my fucking spirit animal, man.


  • JAXX JAXX JAXX JAXX JAXX . . . Barret Jackman, from the other side of the blue line, top corner on Pavelec. And the Blues win 5-4 in regulation over the Jets in a game that totally should've gone to overtime or possibly be a loss. Justin has your recap. [SLGT]
  • You probably had a pretty good idea that our pals at Arctic Ice Hockey did not like that result as much. [Arctic Ice Hockey]
  • Blues' defensive prospect Colton Parayko will forego his senior season at the University of Alaska, signing a two-year entry-level deal. He will report to the Wolves. [SBN College Hockey]
  • Bob McKenzie's report about Vladimir Tarasenko is, as you'd expect, much ado about nothing. CanesAndBluesFan expounds. [SLGT]


  • Eight games last night, including that one. [ 03/10/15]
  • Three games tonight. Oh look, another (L)Eastern Conference matchup on Wednesday Night Rivalry. Cute. [ 03/11/15]
  • The longest game in NCAA D-I hockey history, Minnesota State claims the WCHA regular-season title and other college hockey happenings in Ryan Lambert's weekly NCAA Hockey 101 post. [Puck Daddy]
  • Fewer penalties means teams are scoring fewer power play goals. No shit, obviously, but it's also led to a decrease in overall scoring. Gary Bettman weeps. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • A pretty ugly story involving a sexual assault complaints against players of the QMJHL's Gatineau Olympiques is unfolding. [Y! / Buzzing the Net]
  • If only many of the rest of the Flyers felt as bad as R.J. Umberger does, they might have some kind of accountability, maybe. [Puck Daddy]
  • Devan Dubnyk started his 25th straight game for the Wild(s) last night (a 6-2 victory over the Devils, mind you). Is Minnesota overworking him? (Probably, but Devan fucking Dubnyk is probably just happy to be in the damn league, thankyouverymuch.) [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • Help Die by the Blade design a Sabres third jersey that doesn't suck horseshit and won't be modeled by Steve Ott, would you please? [Die by the Blade]
  • The latest draft lottery odds, and how likely the league fixes the draft for these 14 clubs. [Puck Daddy]


  • Rams fans, say goodbye to your former glaring disappointment and say hello to your new one. [Deadspin]
  • Italian architects are looking into a project similar to Manhattan's High Line in Rome. Fascinating. [NPR / Parallels]
  • When committing a burglary in a snowy place, it's probably not wise to put your car in a snow bank so that your license plate numbers can be read. No? [Y! / AP]
  • I, for one, am not shocked that Reddit is a Goddamn cesspool. [Gawker]


Wanna be able to answer some tough questions? Be a hockey player. (S/T to Art Lippo):
