Three- and four-point weekends have been vanishingly rare for the Bismarck Bobcats (13-16-4) this year. They picked up a big one Friday and Saturday against North Iowa (17-15-2), winning 3-1 Saturday and losing 2-1 in a shootout on Friday.
Earlier this month, the agent for Ville Heinola told The Hockey News that his client deserved "a shot to play a run of games to show he can do it" at the NHL level. The young defenseman has been bounced up and down between leagues for his whole career so far, failing to get much consistency from the Winnipeg Jets organization. Perhaps now the squeaky wheel will get some grease. Heinola has been recalled to the Jets roster after they moved Mason Appleton to injured reserve. Of course, given that Appleton is a forward, this could just be more time in the press box for Heinola. The Jets have allowed the fewest goals in the league so far this season and already had seven defensemen on the roster. If he does get in, there’s certainly no guarantee he stays there, though his play in the minor leagues once again suggests he’s ready for a bigger role in the organization.

Sportnet/CBC have always been well revered for their montages and they nailed it again this year with their preview to the Stanley Cup Final.
Ottawa Senators (and former Atlanta Thrashers) winger Clarke MacArthur played in last night's game against Detroit. He hadn't played since October 2015, missing most of last season with a concussion, and most of this season with a second concussion. As you can see in the video, MacArthur is welling up as he gives a post-game interview. This was a very nice moment, separate from all the pessimism surrounding our team, and the outrage at the NHL's Olympic decision. Just a nice, happy moment. We, hockey fans in general, needed something like this so much.
