BLUES NEWS:

  • The Blues looked mostly like a limp dick in a 2-1 shootout loss to the Jets on Tuesday, so it's the paying audience that got shafted. Justin put a toothpick in the proverbial shit sandwich. [SLGT]
  • Arctic Ice Hockey doesn't really do recaps, but some of the comments serve as a recap of sorts, I suppose. [Arctic Ice Hockey]
  • But never fear! Jaden Schwartz is back to save the offense! Or . . . some shit. Anyway, the little big man is off IR and is expected to play tonight. [SLGT]
  • Schwartz is not John McClane. But now I can't stop saying "Yippee-ki-yay motherfucker". [SLGT]
  • It's dad's trip weekend for the Blues. Also, Jake Allen is inching closer to returning and the Blues recalled Peter Harrold from the Wolves, making me wonder if Petteri Lindbohm died or something. [In the Slot / Lou Korac]
  • The Blues unveiled their 50th anniversary logo. 50 years of franchise history, and all I got was this lousy bland logo. [SLGT]
  • Lynx links! Well, one Lynx link. [SLGT FanPosts]

KNOW YOUR ENEMY--THE FLORIDA PANTHERS:

  • The SB Nation home of the Atlantic Division-leading Panthers is Litter Box Cats. Go there for your Panthers news, views and surely some Jaromir Jagr mullet updates. [Litter Box Cats]

SCORES AND SCHEDULE:

  • As aforementioned . . . everyone hates the new redesign of the NHL's website. [SB Nation]
  • The Jets signed Captain Trash Baby defenseman Dustin Byfuglien to a long-term extension. What does that mean for the blue line trade market? Ryan Lambert weighs in on Huge If True. [Puck Daddy]
  • Speaking of defensemen signing contracts, the Blue Jackets booked youngster Ryan Murray for the next two years. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • Is it time for Kings defenseman Drew Doughty to win a Norris Trophy? (More importantly, does he give a shit?) [USA Today]
  • As you probably know, defenseman Dion Phaneuf was the centerpiece of a 9-player, 1-pick deal between the Maple Leafs and Senators announced Tuesday morning. [The Sporting News]
  • Bruins goaltending prospect Malcolm Subban . . . yes, that would be the kid brother of P.K. Subban . . . will miss six to eight weeks after having surgery to repiar a fractured larynx. Ouch. [Sportsnet]
  • Steven Stamkos is staying pretty close to the vest regarding waiving his no-trade clause. [TSN]

OTHER SHIT:

  • Detroit gonna Detroit. I mean, this is just bizarre. (S/T to UIWWildthing) [Detroit News]

  • Remember waterbeds, fellow children of the 70's and 80's? Whatever happened to those, anyway? [Mental Floss]

  • People have been freaking out about ads on NHL sweaters for a little while. Well, the NBA is looking into putting ads on THEIR uniforms too. [Deadspin]

BEER OF THE DAY:

  • I'm gonna visit Manhattan, KS this weekend. Sure, the "Little Apple" is the home of Kansas State University, but it's also the home of Tallgrass Brewing Company. One of their great selections: the 8-Bit Pale Ale . . . a solid beer with a very unique canister. [Untappd]
