Four losses in a row would . . . not be cool.

BLUES NEWS:

  • After a long absence, Brian brings back Prospect Sunday . . . on a Monday. Yay! [SLGT]
  • Jake Allen will get the nod tonight when the Blues play the Penguins at the New Igloo. [StL Today / The Morning Skate]
  • The Blues' penalty kill has been better . . . but the team is taking more penalties, which isn't good. [In the Slot / Lou Korac]
  • Former NHL referee Kerry Fraser talks about the goal by Justin Abdelkader on Sunday that shouldn't have counted. His verdict? Yes, it shouldn't have counted. (S/T to luvhockey) [TSN / C'mon Ref]

KNOW YOUR ENEMY--THE PITTSBURGH PENGUINS:

  • For more on the Penguins--who have old pals Ian Cole, Maxim Lapierre and David Perron--go to PensBurgh. [PensBurgh]
  • One guy you're not going to see . . . Pascal Dupuis. He's been out with blood clots, and the team confirmed he'll be gone for the rest of the season. Damn, that sucks. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • Seven games last night. Well, Hurricanes, you tried. Thanks for that, I suppose. [NHL.com 03/23/15]
  • Eight games tonight. Including that one in the Steel City you might've heard about. [NHL.com 03/24/15]
  • The Bruins can't close up that last playoff spot out east (and for the moment, the Senators have that spot). Why? Ryan Lambert chimes in on What We Learned. [Puck Daddy]
  • Yes, the Senators moved into an Eastern Conference playoff spot, but they also may have killed the Sharks' playoff hopes . . . and helped hasten Doug Wilson's firing. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • The Rangers are atop USA Today's power rankings. The Blues are fifth. Whatever. Power rankings are basically meh. [USA Today]
  • The NCAA Division I Hockey Tournament is set. Here's your bracket. And so my wife doesn't kill me . . . Go Fighting Sioux! (Love you, dear.) [College Hockey News]
  • An RCMP officer playing pond hockey one-on-one with the mountains in the background. The most Canadian photo ever. No, really. [Puck Daddy]
  • Ilya Kovalchuk may be eyeing a return to the NHL ahead of the 2016-17 season. Oh, lovely. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • The Panthers are basically out of the Eastern Conference playoff race despite their best efforts, but they have an eye on their in-state rival--the Tampa Bay Lightning(s)--as far as their future is concerned. [USA Today]
  • A Junior B team in Newfoundland, down 3-0 in its' playoff series, forfeited the fourth game of the series because of a dickhead "fan" of the opposing team whose ban from arenas wasn't being enforced by its' league. [Y! / Buzzing the Net]
  • An NLAH official was knocked out cold by a player who basically took a dive at his legs. The official ended up being okay. Thank goodness. [Puck Daddy]
  • Coyotes goaltending coach Sean Burke has been given permission by the team to seek front office positions elsewhere. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
