Behind the scenes with Winnipeg's athletic therapists. [Jets.com]
After losing a heartbreaker to the USA in overtime on Saturday, Team Canada will start Devan Dubnyk in hopes of getting back on track today as they face France at the Worlds. Hey look, Cristobal Huet is starting for France! [Canoe]
France will be without Sasha Treille who will probably be suspended the remainder of the tournament for this vicious head shot on Roman Starchenko. (Not for the squeamish) I would provide you to the Puck Daddy link, but as always, their comments section is being run by mouth breathing troglodytes. Spare your blood pressure the unnecessary fluctuation. [YouTube]TSN]
Cam Charron analyzes the rise of the Kings. [Backhand Shelf]
Happy 40th birthday Martin Brodeur, you old bastard you! How did you celebrate it? Why, by helping the New Jersey Devils push the Philadelphia Flyers to the brink of course. No big deal, he also assisted on an empty netter. [In Lou We Trust, Broad Street Hockey]
Rumour Mill: Jordan Staal to the Carolina Hurricanes? Then he and Eric can just rock out to Peaches & Herb's "Reunited and it feels so good" on constant loop. Pull the trigger, Rutherford! [SB Nation]
Remember when the Nashville Predators sat out their leading scorer (Alexander Radulov) and his Belarusian accomplice (Andrei Kostitsyn) for no reason in Game 4 and they got shutout? That was super sweet! Barry Trotz must be the guy at the blackjack table who gets 21 and then boisterously proclaims: "HIT ME!". But hey, now that they're down 3-1 in the series it's going to be hilarious watching Trotz get on his knees begging these two to play. [On the Forecheck]
Finally, RIP MCA. The world lost a tremendously gifted artist on Friday. Paul's Boutique will forever be one of my favourite albums.
