Wigs, Burritos, The Selke & A New NHL Record!

  • Think Bruce Boudreau is sick of hearing about Alex Ovechkin's 50th goal celebration last week against Tampa? He has some pretty blunt quotes for the media. [Link]

  • It's Scott Harntell wig night in Philly tonight. If you're going to the game, make sure that your one of the first 5,000 fans into the arena (or under 14 years old). I'd love for this to backfire on Philly and see a Flyer get a hat trick (of course still getting beat by Florida), what a mess that would be - 5,000+ wigs on the ice! [Link]

  • Cal Clutterbuck, you know the Minnesota Wild rookie who fought Sean Avery on Tuesday night, set an NHL record last night. "Clutterbuck set a league record for hits in a season, breaking the mark set by Dustin Brown of the Kings last year." This article also discusses why the the record is a very subjective stat. [Link]

  • Capitals win the Southleast Division. Well, not yet, but that hasn't stopped some retailers in Washington D.C. to start selling the "2009-09 Division Champions" shirt. [Link]

  • Marty Turco is unhappy. What could possibly be wrong? He's playing like crap - where's Sean Avery when you need someone to blame? [Link]

  • Interesting promotion out of San Jose - eating burritos with the players. [Link]

  • Who do you think is going to win the Selke (best defensive forward) this season? This Philly writer makes a case for Mike Richards. Well considering that he has a league leading 7 short handed goals, I think it's a safe bet that he'll be a nominee. [Link]
