Dear Derick Brassard:
The young forward's OT blast not only marked his first career OT winner, but his first multi-goal NHL game, and earned him first star of the night over at Puck Daddy. Awesome!
For more thoughts on the game, check out Martini Hockey, Puck-Rakers (it turns out the one thing in the world Aaron Portzline and I agree on is our preferred order at In-N-Out), DBJ, and TMM.
Backhand Shelf has a beerability update, the 5 teams Bourne always wants to watch, and praise for an NHL GM doing nothing.
Appropriately, DBJ had some thoughts about the growth of Brassard before last night. So, um, how do we feel about him in a clutch situation now? (Honestly, better, but hoping he can repeat it a few times...) DBJ also put together a few glass bangers earlier in the week.
At Puck Daddy, there's a Scott Gomez protest song and more Jersey Fouls.
LTL has some This and That and a look at a fan made ASG logo concept. Not bad, but I agree - MORE CANNON.
Finally, we've got a whole mess of Clockgate from TMM, Backhand Shelf, and Puck Daddy. Stick-taps to CBJReddit for figuring out this is NOT the first "clock malfunction" at Staples Center this year...
