  • . . . the birthday boy and team Captain, David Backes, potted an overtime power play marker to lift the Blues over the Stars 4-3 in Dallas. HullandOates has your recap. [SLGT]
  • Defending Big D had words about the game as well. [Defending Big D]
  • CrossCheckRaise and I spoke words about the victory and compared Antoine Roussel to that kid you remember from school who used to eat glue . . . in our Round Two, Game Two Beyond Checkerdome Quick Shot. [SLGT]


  • We'll lead off with actual shit . . . it involves a prop bet between the St. Louis Zoo and the Dallas Zoo. And it involves elephant shit. [SLGT]
  • Some sodium regarding playoff officiating . . . from the opposing side. Boy, I wonder if the calls were going Dallas's way if this would either . . . well, 1) sound differently, or 2) not even be written at all? But I digress. [Defending Big D]
  • Stars forward Tyler Seguin skated in practice, but neither he nor Patrick Eaves made the trip to St. Louis, meaning they're both out for Games Three and Four. [SLGT]
  • Want an enforcer? Or, want a pest? (Personally, I'd rather have a guy who can play hockey effectively over either one.) [SLGT]


  • So wait . . . we're just NOW figuring out that maybe sitting back with a lead is not a good strategy? You didn't look at nearly A WHOLE FUCKING SEASON'S WORTH OF DATA to come to that conclusion, you guys? Jesus H. Fuck, man. [StL Today]




  • A couple months after Allan Walsh pretty much tried to sabotage the young man's career, Jonathan Drouin has become a key factor for the Lightning(s). How it was done and more in Ryan Lambert's What We Learned. [Puck Daddy]
  • Penguins defenseman Kris Letang did a derp on Capitals forward Marcus Johansson last night and will probably be suspended for it. That would be a huge loss for the Pens, who already looked like wounded birds WITH him last night despite the victory. [Deadspin / Screengrabber]
  • Before that game, Caps defenseman Brooks Orpik was suspended three games for doing a derp on Pens defenseman Olli Maatta in Game Two. [USA Today]
  • Caps coach Barry Trotz didn't think highly of the suspension, hinting that the suspension showed favoritism. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • Mike Milbury Is An Idiot: Exhibit 54-Q. [SB Nation]
  • In case you missed it, draft prospect Patrik Laine had a very . . . ummmm, entertaining? . . . interview ahead of Saturday's draft lottery. [Sportsnet]
  • 5 post-lottery questions that are burning and possibly on fire. [TSN]
  • It's playoff time, which means it's time for forward Joel Ward to be a badass again. This time, it's with the Sharks, who are notoriously terrible at the whole playoff thing. [The Color of Hockey]
  • A popular Blackhawks blog posted its' last post, citing the train wreck that was the Blackhawks season and general fan neglect regarding all the legal trouble in the last calendar year. [Hockeenight]
  • The 2017 Memorial Cup will be hosted by the OHL's Windsor Spitfires. [Windsor Spitfires]
  • An inside look at the day North Dakota won the 2016 NCAA Division I national hockey championship. [Grand Forks Herald]
  • There's a third face in a popular photo that includes P.K. Subban and Steven Stamkos as tike hockey teammates. Meet the man behind that face . . . a construction worker that now resides in Oshawa, ON. [Toronto Star]


  • BluesMay and I are going to see an Omaha Storm Chasers game soon. Unfortunately, it will not be the one this upcoming Friday, in which they will be wearing Han Solo-themed jerseys. [SI / Extra Mustard]
  • Speaking of Star Wars . . . someone remade The Force Awakens with emojis. [Nerdist]
  • To commemorate the 5th anniversary of the successful special operation that killed Osama Bin Laden (which, officially, was yesterday since it concluded in the early morning hours in Pakistan), the Central Intelligence Agency "live-tweeted" the events leading to the conclusion as it would have occurred five years ago. [Newsweek]
  • This may shock you, I'm sure, but . . . apparently Neanderthals weren't exactly picky with what they ate. A STUNNING TURN OF EVENTS. [NPR]
  • An awesome tribute to Prince . . . by a retired North Dakota farmer. [Y! / AP]
  • Some words about the point on earth that's furthest from any land whatsoever. Obviously, it's in the Pacific. [Mental Floss]
  • Legendary baseball broadcaster Vin Scully is a national fucking treasure. Let us all enjoy him while we still are able. [Deadspin]
  • Congratulations to English Premier League side Leicester City, who overcame long odds to win the whole damn thing . . . which became official after last night's 2-2 draw between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. [Fosse Posse]


  • Fuck it . . . I'll recommend a Texas beer, because it's damn good. Shiner Ruby Redbird, from Spoetzl Brewery in good ol' Shiner, TX. Light, refreshing and very tasty. [Untappd]


Remember the Cyndi Lauper classic "Time After Time"? Well, as great as that track is/was, you'll be hard-pressed to make me believe this version of the song isn't better:

I mean, it's REALLY fucking good.

BluesMay will be back with you ahead of Game Four. Though right now she's day-to-day with an upper body injury.
