Shrapnel - 2/5/12

Happy Sunday!

In case you tuned out the NHL last night, Olli Jokinen had a big mac attack, Sam Gagner is still in beast mode, Ryan Miller broke a franchise record, Martin St. Louis got a hat trick in his 900th game, Ilya Kovalchuk got a Gordie Howe Hat Trick, and Teemu Selanne won a pig.

In matters Columbus, Carry The Flag recaps the road trip, Crimespree Hockey takes a look at who is likely to go at the trade deadline, and it's been confirmed that Jeff Carter does not have an NTC this season.

At SBNation, Bruce wonders if Zach Parise might be feeling Minnesota, and a Blues fan pretty much made the best Chris Hansen joke. Too bad Pekka Rinne was, well, Pekka Rinne.

At the Dispatch, Portzline sees an "experience gap", Derick Brassard is beefing up his game, and Michael Arace pens a column about Carter's much discussed exit, which Dannie decided to eviscerate.

Sports Illustrated says putting the Islanders in Brooklyn is a terrible idea, Backhand Shelf can't explain many things, and Cam Charron wonders if Bruce Boudreau could be a Jack Adams trophy candidate?
