Morning, everyone! The Canucks are in Minnesota for tomorrow's game against the Wild, so look forward to that snoozefest, some other stuff happened around the NHL, I'm sure and I fell a sleep on the bus and hit my head really hard. No one turn on a microwave - I don't want to piss myself and forget who I am for a half hour. Lets get at it!
>> Cam Charron who can count well past 100, has an interesting piece on penalty shots in overtime.
>> The Godfather of Shap, Tony "watch me hit this fade" Gallagher has yesterdays Canucks Hat Trick.
>> Anytime you can work a "fatty" into an article about hockey, or in this case Chris Tanev's first NHL goal, you deserve a pat on the back. Since Jason Botchford won't let me anywhere near him, would someone kindly let him know I think this is a job well done?
>> As I mentioned before, the Canucks are in Minnesota, which happens to be where Jordan Schroeder is from. Neat.
>> A little bit more from Tony "Air" Gallagher - Every game the Canucks win now, helps Ryan Kesler in May.
That's all the Canucks shap this morning, sure to be more later when I log off. You know how it goes. Lets see what those other assholes are up to, yeah?
The Other Guys:
>> Is there a goalie controversy happening in Anaheim? While most of you don't give two sweet fucks about it, you can still check it out.
>> Brandon Dubinsky drilled Rob Scuderi and we'll have a meeting with Brendan Shanahan. Hopefully it's not naked Wednesday at NHL head office.
>> Despite losing and sucking and Alex Ovechkin having a terrible year, the Washington Capitals believe they're still moving in the right direction.
>> In case you missed it, Duncan Keith actually fought someone last night. It came after Sharks center Andrew Desjardins leveled Blackhawks forward Jamal Mayers in a clean, open ice hit. Desjardins was also wrongly ejected.
Anyways, that's all for me, folks. Enjoy your day today. Thanks for reading.
