I had you find your own links yesterday. I've actually collected some for you today.


  • Fart noises and other random stuff . . . that's how I'll describe the 4-1 Hurricanes win over the Blues on Thursday. Justin was more descriptive and had videos and shit. [SLGT]
  • Canes Country was a bit more jazzed about the affair. [Canes Country]
  • The highlight of the game: the puck drop. Doesn't say much about the game, but this moment was pretty fucking cool regardless. Stan Kroenke can eat a planet-level amount of dicks. [SLGT]
  • A fan thanks Tom Stillman. [SLGT FanPosts]
  • Anyway, back to the game . . . "What are you gonna do"? Ummm, coach, your job is to FIND THAT OUT. [SLGT FanShots]
  • What did he say that to? A post-game reaction to this meltdown by Brian Elliott after he was pulled. One thing you could do, coach, is try having your team play better in front of the goalie you just yanked. [SLGT FanShots]
  • Anyway. Pretty sweet lid Brian's gonna wear tonight. [Sportsnet]
  • Robb applies stock market analysis to Blues stats and finds some interesting results in this week's #Fancystats Friday. [SLGT]


  • Greater than 24 hours ago, it was reported that Jonathan Drouin would be dealt by the Lightning(s)within 24 hours . . . see a problem there? Yes. (You do the math.) [Pro Hockey Talk]
  • Our comrades at Raw Charge give a possible trade scenario. One that I WOULD NOT LIKE AT ALL. [Raw Charge]
  • THERE WAS A TRADE YESTERDAY THOUGH . . . something called Richard Nedomlel was acquired from the Red Wings for future considerations, and the large Czech defenseman has been assigned to the Wolves. I may be wrong, but this seems like it's the first time since the Federko/Oates trade that the Wings and Blues have dealt with each other. [Frozen Notes]


  • One of the top fan-run hockey sites on SB Nation is Eyes on the Prize. For Canadiens news and fan views, head on over. [Eyes on the Prize]



  • John Scott has been dealt to tonight's Blues opponent. As such, it appears he will not be going to the All-Star Game. [Puck Daddy]
  • Reports have surfaced that the trade was orchestrated by the NHL to give them an excuse to knock Scott out of the All-Star Game. The NHL refuses to wear the egg they shoved directly into their own face. [The Sporting News]
  • Our old pal Joel Quenneville passed another old pal of ours, Al Arbour, for second all-time in coaching wins. Hey, remember when Bill Laurie had Larry Pleau fire him? I root for a terrible franchise. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • The rumored 8-year $80MM contract about to be given to Kings center Anze Kopitar is good news for Steven Stamkos . . . yeah, I'd say. [USA Today]
  • Mandatory domestic violence and sexual assault prevention training has been instituted league-wide. A few years late, probably, but better late than never. [SB Nation]
  • #JagrForever [Sportsnet]
  • Ohio State and Michigan play each other in hockey, too. And Ohio State tied last night's contest late in a rather thrilling fashion. [Deadspin / Screengrabber]


  • RIP, Alan Rickman. Remembering some of his finer roles. [Nerdist]
  • Professional driver of really fast cars, Tony Stewart, went all Plager on someone's ass last night. [SB Nation]
  • Hatem Ben Arfa is really good at soccer. I remember when he used to play for Newcastle United. Fuck, man. [Deadspin / Screengrabber]
  • Could the appendix have a use after all? That's what an immunology study is suggesting. [Mental Floss]
  • A lesson in not stirring the pot . . . literally. [Y! / AP]


  • The best little brewery in Texas, Spoetzl Brewery, has many fine offerings under their Shiner label. Shiner Ruby Red, as a fruit beer brewed using Texas Rio Red grapefruit, is a bit lighter . . . but is Goddamn tasty regardless. [Untappd]


Misconceptions regarding beverages . . . debunked:

I like beverages. They haven't debunked THAT one yet.

Hoosier Blue is scheduled at the Links Factory tomorrow. BluesMay has Monday's links. I'm back on Wednesday.
