I came across this carousel animal at the Patee Hotel Pony Express Museum in St. Joseph, MO. The text below it reads: "This carving by Bruce White was inspired by the 'San Jose Sharks' Hockey Club and is cast as a carousel animal." Just thought I'd share!

Puck Travels - Nashville

So I went with the Caps Road Crew to Nashville yesterday. Or rather, got tickets through them and sat with them. As I had to work Friday, flying to Nashville seemed like the better option. Thoughts...

Tracking the Masterton Nominees (updated 4/12/10)

(Last updated: 4/12/10. Added: Buffalo, Edmonton) I love Jose Theodore's story and I think his story is compelling enough to make a good case for the Masterton Trophy, but I have to wonder - what...

Hershey 4/3 - Anyone Going?

So this came out of a Twitter discussion tonight. I've been jonesing to throw dead flesh on a grill for a couple of weeks now, and it looks like weather Saturday is going to permit exactly that...

Messier Award Nominees

8

For whatever it's worth - the week 4 Messier Award nominees are up, and there's a familiar face on that page. Messier makes the ultimate decision of finalists and the winner, but this is some sort of crazy vote in an attempt to sway him? Oh well, I'm always up for giving Ovi a little love.

More backhanded talk about Ovi

Even when someone's "defending' Ovechkin, they just can't resist calling him dirty, can they?

Seen Giggy's new mask yet?

Skating for the Rest of Us

Okay, so not all of us play hockey yet. While it's kinda fun to watch the Rats play pickup, not all of us have the equipment and/or skills to join in. Some of us would like to acquire...

Flying Puck in 104 - the Aftermath

6

DC SportsBog got ahold of some pictures of the man who got hit with that flying puck in 104 at the Flyers game on Sunday. Yowch. I'd love to hear whether he's all right.

Those gritty Capitals

Not the word I would have chosen even last year, but the Caps' roleplayers get a little love from Darren Eloit of SI. (h/t Kukla's Korner)

Stupidly cold out, but a fire in the fireplace, soup on the stove, and the Flyers getting curbstomped by the Senators on NHL Network. Does it get better than this?

I know you guys don't like OFB very much, but this article made me smile. Stretch hasn't hung up the pads - quite the opposite.

For those of you with Facebook, this was kind of a fun quiz. Some of the ones they chose are obvious, some ... not so much.

HNIC Likes the Caps, Too

"With the Capitals, there's a buzz not just at the rink, but even at our meetings throughout the week and obviously much of that has to do with Ovechkin. He's just so dynamic visually that you're debating how much time you're going to have one of your isolation cameras on him, or how many graphics you'll have for him, keeping in mind that it will be more than most other players in a typical week, so there really is a buzz and a lot of focus on him, but it's not often that he disappoints." -- Hockey Night in Canada producer Doug Walton
