"Hi. I am a really good hockey player. How about you?"

WHEN WE LAST SAW THE BLUES . . . :

  • . . . they didn't win. They played . . . blah, and ended up conceding a goal to Cody Eakin briefly into the overtime period. Stars beat the Blues 3-2 and the series is tied at two apiece. Justin has your recap. [SLGT]
  • Defending Big D seemed to be a bit more excited by the affair. [Defending Big D]
  • CrossCheckRaise and I talked more about other things than Game Four in the Round Two Game Four Beyond Checkerdome Quick Shot. I mean, the game was fucking boring, right? [SLGT]

BLUES/STARS SHIT:

  • Patrick Eaves might play today. Tyler Seguin will not play. And something about Shania Twain. [Defending Big D]
  • Ken Hitchcock hinted at lineup changes. That's probably code for "Yep, Magnus Paajarvi is playing today." OH JOY. [StL Today / Morning Skate]

OTHER BLUES SHIT:

  • J-Mill makes a rare appearance to opine . . . "On Tony X.; or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bandwagon". [SLGT]
  • Ryan Reaves is not the hero Gotham needs but doesn't deserve . . . he's the enforcer the Blues need and fans deserve. (If only he were better at hockeying.) [SLGT]
  • Send some encouragement to the Blues. [SLGT FanPosts]
  • The Los Angeles Rams are the best thing to happen to the Blues. [SLGT FanPosts]
  • Some good news from Game Four . . . the Blues raised over $25,000 for Fort McMurray, Alberta wildfire victims. More on those devastating fires in another section of these links. [Twitter / @StLouisBlues]

KNOW YOUR ENEMY--THE DALLAS BUNCH MOXERS STARS:

  • Defending Big D, which I'm pretty sure Steve Dangle once said was "unfortunately named", is the place to go for Stars news and fan views. [Defending Big D]

SCORES AND BRACKET:

OTHER HOCKEY SHIT:

  • Ryan Lambert lays out how Kris Letang is the real MVP of the Penguins (despite their win Wednesday without him) in Trending Topics. [Puck Daddy]
  • The Coyotes officially announced the hiring of 26-year-old John Chayka as general manager on Thursday. And what have you done with YOUR lives, sirs and madams? [SB Nation]
  • Kings general manager Dean Lombardi says coach Darryl Sutter has an offer to return to the Kings next season. [TSN]
  • The Islanders briefly had to turn to rookie netminder Jean-Francois Berube briefly when Thomas Greiss had to come out for repairs . . . of his skate blade, which fell off. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • Anyway, the Isles blew a late lead again . . . and gave up an early OT goal . . . again . . . to the Lightning(s) last night. [USA Today]
  • It looks like North Dakota forward Drake Caggiula, an undrafted free agent, will sign with the Oilers. [Sportsnet]
  • Team USA got eviscerated by Team Canada 5-1 in their opening game at the IIHF World Championships in St. Petersburg, Russia. [USA Hockey]
  • A look at all the silly names from Thursday's WHL Bantam Draft. [Deadspin]
  • SB Nation needs a site manager for a new blog they're starting about women's hockey. Find out about this opportunity here: [SB Nation / Blog Huddle]

OTHER . . . OTHER SHIT:

  • Some photos of the absolute devastation in Fort McMurray, Alberta. Damn. Damn damn damn damn damn. [NPR / The Two-Way]
  • MLB commissioner Rob Manfred says the league isn't expanding any time soon, but when it does, he likes Mexico City and . . . Montreal. That sound you heard is Jonah Keri going berserk. [Deadspin]
  • Speaking of Jonah Keri, he had Shaquille O'Neal on his podcast yesterday and while it's only about a half hour long, it's well worth the listen. Shaq is a fascinating dude and Keri is a solid podcaster. [Nerdist]
  • I . . . don't think you're allowed to do this in basketball, actually. [SB Nation / #Lookit]
  • This . . . uhhh, just doesn't look right. [Y! / AP]
  • A list of seven books that will probably not ever be printed again for various reasons. [Mental Floss]
  • Remember Boaty McBoatface? Well, that's not happening. Officially. BOOOOOO. (S/T to BluesMay) [CBC]

BEER OF THE DAY:

  • Not quite a beer, but close enough . . . I had a sip of BluesMay's beverage last night, which was the Hard Orange Cream Ale from Coney Island Brewing Company in Brooklyn, NY, purveyors of many fine hard soda-type products. [Untappd]

VIDEO:

This video's probably been used before, but I was thinking about this clip last night and it's just too fucking funny. From a couple years ago, a drunk-off-his-ass old white dude singing "Get Low" on the DC Metro:

"TO THE WINDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW . . . TTTOOO THE WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL . . . "

Since we know there's a Game Six, we know that we'll have links Monday. And it will be BluesMay to deliver them, unless something comes up.
