"Nice turnover, fuckhead! Yeaaaahhhh!"
"Nice turnover, fuckhead! Yeaaaahhhh!"
David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

WHEN WE LAST SAW THE BLUES . . . :

  • The Blues got pounded with shots, but Brian Elliott came through huge and, buoyed by two goals from Vladimir Tarasenko and one each from Jaden Schwartz and Alexander Steen, stole a 4-3 decision from the Blackhawks to push Those Fuckers Up North to the edge of elimination. Justin has your capper. [SLGT]
  • Second City Hockey was not as pleased . . . [Second City Hockey]
  • . . . nor was The Committed Indian. [The Committed Indian]
  • CrossCheckRaise and I had fun recapping Game 4 in a Quick Shot. [SLGT]
  • More on those . . . uhhh, things that happened during Game 4 . . . in their own sections.

THE ANDREW SHAW INCIDENT:

  • Noted fuckstain and possible (though not-for-sure) dumpster fire of a human being Andrew Shaw won't play Game 5 and was fined $5,000 because he called an on-ice official that special six-letter F-word that even I won't say. [SLGT FanShots]
  • Mr. Minton has words about it. [SLGT]
  • So did Doc Whiskey. [SLGT FanPosts]
  • So did Second City Hockey. [Second City Hockey]
  • Before the suspension was announced, Shaw apologized . . . [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • . . . but only after using the "I can't remember what I said" line of bullshit. [Deadspin]
  • Sam at The Committed Indian went as far as to say the Blackhawks should've been the ones suspending Shaw, not the league. [The Committed Indian]
  • What happens on the ice doesn't stay on the ice when we can see it at our damn house. Great piece over at Pension Plan Puppets. [Pension Plan Puppets]
  • A Chicago Tribune reporter shares a unique perspective on this situation. [Chicago Tribune]

THE COREY CRAWFORD INCIDENT WITH ROBBY FABBRI:

  • Yeah, so what in the blue fucking hell was that play between Corey Crawford and Robby Fabbri about, anyway? Robb has a frame-by-frame breakdown. (Oh, and I encourage you to check out the comments of this post.) [SLGT]
  • And yes, the Blues ended up having to kill a penalty after that. [SLGT]
  • And no, they shouldn't have, says Kerry Fraser. [TSN]

OTHER BLUES SHIZZ:

  • The Blues are refusing to let the NHL have its' way, says Dan. [SLGT]
  • Canadian sportswriting bag of wind Steve Simmons decided to be a smartass about muting the St. Louis broadcast of Game 4. Darren Pang responded in kind. [SLGT FanShots]
  • John Kelly followed up with a line of his own. [Frozen Notes]
  • St. Louis loves its' hockey. [SLGT]
  • Alex Pietrangelo has been playing pretty fucking well this playoff year, a big reason the Blues are now up 3-1 in the series (and 2-1 when this was written). [SLGT]
  • Arctic Ice Hockey's podcasting wing brought aboard our own Hildy to discuss the Blues. [Arctic Ice Hockey]

KNOW YOUR ENEMY--THOSE FUCKERS UP NORTH (AKA THE CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS):

  • You can find 'em up there. Second City Hockey, The Committed Indian . . . and shockingly enough, there are many others.

SCORES AND BRACKET:

OTHER HOCKEY SHIZZ:

  • Ryan Lambert takes on the Flyers and their fans, Dan Girardi, stepping on logos and other shit in the Puck Daddy Countdown. [Puck Daddy]
  • Flyers forward Scott Laughton had to be carried off on a stretcher after an awkward play along the boards last night. [The Sporting News]
  • Panthers ageless wonder Jaromir Jagr notched his 200th career playoff point in their win over the Islanders last night. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • Keeping young forward Jonathan Drouin around has seemed to work for the Lightning(s) and GM Steve Yzerman. [USA Today]
  • As for his coach . . . Jon Cooper says he is "unbelievably proud" of Drouin. [Sportsnet]
  • Penguins defenseman Kris Letang was not penalized--nor was he suspended or fined--for doing a dumb-dumb to the neck of Rangers forward Viktor Stalberg on Tuesday. [SB Nation]
  • Star forward of the University of North Dakota program that just won the NCAA Division I title, Drake Caggiula, is making the rounds as a college free agent. [TSN]

OTHER OTHER SHIZZ:

  • In the English football system, officials do not get assigned to games for teams they support. And they must disclose which teams they support. (S/T to Face Off) [BBC]
  • Dat family van dank, doe. [Y! / AP]
  • Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks has a fucking cannon for an arm. [SB Nation / #Lookit]
  • ESPN fired Curt Schilling yesterday. Considering the social networking policies there, this seemed to be a long time coming. [Deadspin]
  • It's mushroom-hunting season. Out west, mushroom hunters are keeping a keen eye on the ones from areas ravaged by recent wildfires. [NPR / The Salt]
  • In honor of 4/20 Day yesterday . . . ever needed to smoke weed WHILE you had your pizza and not BEFORE you eat pizza? Well, now you can! In New York. [Nerdist]
  • Nine movies that were supposed to be sequels to other films. [Mental Floss]

BEER OF THE DAY:

  • I enjoyed this Chicagoland brew while watching Chicago's professional hockey team lose Game 4. Wobble IPA from Two Brothers Brewing Company in Warrenville, IL. It's not bad. [Untappd]

VIDEO:

Not that you NEED any more adrenaline tonight, but if you do . . . just watch this on continuous loop for about a half hour:

LET'S FUCKING GO.

So if the thing happens tonight, I will have links Saturday. If not, BluesMay will have the links Saturday.
