When it comes to abbreviations, I prefer "Gouldie." I ain't no deity, just a hockey fan.

I'm a moderator on Japers Rink

I asked Bruce about that flat-out today. I said, ...I know how you are, you kind of look for these historical things and you use them to motivate your team sometimes. What would this mean for you, ... seven straight [road] wins, that record stood for 27 years and you can own it tonight. And he says, you know what, I used to care about stuff like that. After last year I learned that...none of that stuff matters. So we're just looking to win hockey games and get points, and whatever happens happens.

How Jason Chimera Scored A Goal From The Penalty Box; or, Why Defensemen Shouldn't Fight

Good things happen when you drive the net.  Sometimes, they just take longer than you'd expect.  With about 40 seconds left in the 2nd period of yesterday's game against the Blackhawks, Jason...

John Walton agrees with the Ovechkin suspension

3

Listen to segment 2. Walton with a very balanced take on the suspension. For one thing, he says that the injury should be irrelevant, but at the end of the day it's a check from behind and hits like that should be suspended. Also, Frank quotes an unnamed website for saying that John Carlson is now the Caps' 6th defenseman. I wonder who he might have had in mind...

Braden Holtby on The Old Barn Hockey Show. Excellent interviews with Holtby and with Zach Miscovic this week. I am once again reminded why I am a hockey fan -- these guys are just so down to earth and likeable.

Andrew Gordon on the Old Barn Hockey Show on January 16. This was a great interview. Gordon is smart and funny, and if you weren't already rooting for him to make it in the NHL, you will be after listening. I think the guy would fit in perfectly with Brads, Boyd Gordon and Steckel on the ice and in the locker room. He could be a coach or TV analyst some day. Part two of the show is equally good -- an interview with Grant McNeill about fighting where McNeill pulls no punches tells it how it is. His explanation of how guys signal when they're ready to go is great.
