Normally I like to post pieces from all the major sports, but with the hockey playoffs approaching I’m going to focus mainly on hockey. Here are some stories in the world of hockey last week you may have missed:
A wonderful tribute is being given to former NHL Head Coach Pat Burns as an arena will be named after him in Quebec. The Globe and Mail has the story. It’s too bad that Pat might not live to see it. We’re praying for you Pat.
Montreal forward Travis Moen had a gruesome incident last week as a skate acidently came across his face. He needed 50 stitches to close the wound. But guess what? He was back in the lineup missing only one game. You can read about it and see a photo from the Montreal Gazette.
The Calgary Flames playoff chances are fading. George Johnson of the Calgary Herald has the story here. So Jay, that idea you had about playing for a hockey city that was a playoff team? How’s that working out for ya? Jerk!
Former NHL player and coach Jim Playfair goes nuts after a penalty and game misconduct to one of his players. Thanks to Puck Daddy for this one! Wouldn’t mind seeing some of this from Pete after one of our players gets steamrolled!
Myles Robinson at Editor In Leaf has a great piece regarding shots to the head.
Ricky Doyle over at Causeway Crowd has his version of the NHL’s Sweet Sixteen.
Sabre Noise and Tim Redinger have a peak at what could be a new sweater for the Sabres.
Blue Line Station has another story in the list of shennanigans regarding everyone’s favourite pest.
The Flyers are certainly having trouoble. Broad Street Buzz talks about the “Screwing Up”.
Blackhawk Up has a great rountable discussion with a couple other Blackhawk bloggers. Nice work Jeff.
The Dallas Stars are facing the probablity of not making the playoffs this year. Blackout Dallas referring to a popular Maple Leaf and Chicago Cub phrase: There’s Always Next Year.
Of course you must go to Down Goes Brown for his version of why the NHL took their time on ruling on headshots.
Donny Rivette has his version of David Booth getting knocked out by Montreals Jaroslav Spacek. Check out Litter Box Cats. Always a good read. Keep up the good work my friend.
And finally, in case you missed it, Erin Andrews, yes THAT Erin Andrews is on Dancing With The Stars. I have to say, I have always liked her looks sports reporting. Her dancing seems to be pretty good too. Take at her doing the Cha Cha Cha in her first dance. Thanks to our sister blogging site Lightly Buzzed for this one.
Thanks for reading.
