  • The Blues didn't win. The third period sucked. But the Flyers themselves still suck, and so winning basically ensured a lower seed in the Connor McDavid sweepstakes. So there's that. Justin had your recap, and he agrees with me and all the other logical people out there about Alex Pietrangelo, so there's that. [SLGT]
  • Here's how Broad Street Hockey saw things. [Broad Street Hockey]
  • Before the game, we posted Episode #76 of Beyond Checkerdome, talking about the prior four games and the trade deadline, including a guest spot from The PredCast and On The Forecheck's Dan Bradley. Thanks Dan, for dealing with my (obviously) drunk ass! [SLGT]
  • Blues defense prospect Jordan Schmaltz is the fifth-best NCAA prospect, according to this list. (His brother, Nick, is 10th, but fuck him, he's in the Blackhawks' system.) [SBN College Hockey]


  • There were eight scores last night. Thank you, Islanders . . . much obliged. [ 03/05/15]
  • Six games tonight. Go *CHORTLE* Oilers! [ 03/06/15]
  • Remember the Peyote Coyote sweaters? They made a comeback last night. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • Alice Cooper made an appearance, as he should. [Puck Daddy]
  • And that was because Mike Smith had an Alice Cooper-themed mask, mostly. [USA Today / For The Win]
  • Flames defenseman David Schlemko went all Peter Forsberg/Vladimir Tarasenko last night in the shootout. [Deadspin]
  • We have another diving fine . . . this time, Maple Leafs forward Richard Panik gets the paycheck cut. We see this gent tomorrow night. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • Thanks to the Panthers' recent troubles . . . who is the best emergency goaltender in the league? (Personally, I would enjoy lighting up Patrick Roy. Just to cram it up his ass, essentially.) [Puck Daddy]
  • Jordan Leopold and his family opened up regarding his daughter's letter that's made the rounds in the last week. [USA Today / For The Win]


  • NBA on TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager returned tonight in Chicago, nearly a year after starting his battle with leukemia. A very touching tribute to the man of the garish jackets. [Deadspin]
  • Why did we forget about Nikola Tesla? (S/T to my wife, BluesMay) [PRI]
  • We're not taking enough lunch breaks. That's not good for business. [NPR / The Salt]
  • "1) Steal bikes and goat. 2) ????????? 3) PROFIT!" [Y! / AP]
  • I really want an MLS team in St. Louis, but not if someone of a similar mind of these owners is running the Goddamn franchise. Sorry. [Deadspin / Screamer]


First . . . yesterday was Barret Jackman's 34th birthday, and being the dumbass I am, I forgot to post this:
