Shit getting smashed, pulverized and made . . . all in a stunningly mesmerizing way. Plus, links of several varieties.

Hey, remember when I said  would be doing today's links?

Well. I lied. Sorry.

BLUES NEWS:

  • The Blues scored goals and won a hockey contest on the basis of their offense, which was odd to see. Jaden Schwartz potted one of the five goals in his return. 5-3, your final. Justin, your recap. [SLGT]
  • From the Panthers side . . . the Litter Box Cats folks were . . . NOT exactly as ecstatic with the game's outcome. [Litter Box Cats]
  • Dan says the Blues should stick with Brian Elliott for a while. [SLGT]
  • Rick Schwartz has had a hell of a weekend and Bill Elliott (a former director of the brilliant Red Green Show, now a Canadian classic) got to do some behind-the-camera work for FSMW on Tuesday night. Those and other tidbits from the "Dads Trip". [StL Today]

KNOW YOUR ENEMY--THE TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING(S):

  • For your Lightning(s) news, views and Steven Stamkos contract-related pants-shitting . . . check out our pals over at Raw Charge. [Raw Charge]

SCORES AND SCHEDULE:

  • Yeah, the NHL still would prefer you find your OWN fucking scores. Seven games Friday, ten yesterday . . . then five today, including the tilt not too far from Ybor City at 5pm CST. [NHL.com Scores]

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • Yeo-LO . . . the Wild(s) cashiered coach Mike Yeo last night. It appears John Torchetti--who had been coaching their AHL affiliate in Des Moines--will be his replacement in the interim. [Hockey Wilderness]
  • The Canucks busted out some sweet uniforms from their past . . . then got mopped by the Toronto Marlies Maple Leafs at home. [Pension Plan Puppets]
  • Speaking of the Leafs . . . prospect Mitch Marner scored a dazzler for the London Knights on Friday. [USA Today / FTW!]
  • Also speaking of the Leafs . . . it appears they're getting an outdoor game against the Red Wings, presumably on January 1, 2017. St. Louis still appears to be getting an outdoor game on January 2nd. [Sportsnet]
  • And it appears the Jets will host the Fighting McDavids Oilers in October in an outdoor game of some type. [Puck Daddy]
  • As for the Jets CURRENTLY . . . they're still horseshit, but they're not yet putting their Captain, Andrew Ladd, on the trading block. [TSN]
  • Flyers rookie defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere set a new record for consecutive games with a point by a rookie blue-liner. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]

OTHER SHIT:

  • There was a schism in 1054, splitting the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches. Since that point, the leaders of the two churches had never met. Friday, nearly a full millennium later, the Pope and the Patriarch met each other in peace, in Cuba. I guess that's rather significant. [NPR / The Two-Way]
  • It was too cold in New York yesterday . . . for an ice festival in Central Park. Yeah. [Y! / AP]
  • Valentine's Day (which is today, actually, if you'd forgotten) is stupid and turns people into morons. I mean, just look at this map. [Nerdist]
  • Sighing . . . is actually good for you. [Mental Floss]
  • Justin Timberlake and Alfonso Ribeiro do the dance that made Ribeiro famous at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. [SB Nation / #Lookit]
  • Not every call is this obvious, but sports would be awesome if every call WAS this obvious. [Deadspin / Screengrabber]

BEER OF THE DAY:

  • So as I said . . . I visited Manhattan, KS yesterday. And their awesome microbrewery, Tallgrass Brewing, had a special one on tap . . . their renowned Buffalo Sweat, except a variety brewed with vanilla beans AND cinnamon, aged in bourbon barrels. The result was awesome, trust me. [Untappd]

VIDEO:

Digg compiled five minutes of some of the most mesmerizing and satisfying shit you'll ever watch, and made a supercut of it:

Wowzers.

So again . . . my offer still stands if anyone wants to do Blues off-day links:

I think BluesMay will be back with you on Tuesday for REALZ this time, guys. Help her out:

I'll return . . . at some point.
