Pretty amazing story about Joe Murphy, who I'm old enough to remember as the #1 overall pick in the 1986 NHL draft:

The NHL this afternoon will announce a 2-year partnership with Green Day that could also bring with it a new anthem similar to what the NFL had with Hank Williams on "Monday Night Football." https://t.co/OXDnYhHvBO

tru, although that doesn't necessarily make the game better

60 years ago today, Jacques Plante changed the game. After taking a puck to the face, the Canadiens' goaltender wore a mask to finish a game against the Rangers. Plante would become the first netminder in NHL history to wear one regularly #Hockey365 #GoalieDay #GoHabsGo pic.twitter.com/x6RnHB5wz4

Yeah same. Problem seems to be elsewhere.

Van Horn Street, Wednesday, 20 November 2019 22:27 (three months ago) link

idk -- it's not babcock's fault they lack a backup goalie, but . . .

iirc red wings players weren't too sorry to see him depart. this was his fifth season, they never got out of the first round, and sometimes players just need a different voice. they should be better than they are by now

mookieproof, Wednesday, 20 November 2019 22:49 (three months ago) link

The Dallas Stars have dismissed head coach Jim Montgomery.

GM Jim Nill issued this statement through the team:

“The Dallas Stars expect all of our employees to act with integrity and exhibit professional behavior while working for and representing our organization. This decision was made due to unprofessional conduct inconsistent with the core values and beliefs of the Dallas Stars and the National Hockey League.”

these coaches fall like dominoes

The Islanders are retiring a JT and a 91 next month, and neither have anything to do with John Tavares. (Perhaps the poetic justice was too much to ignore, though.)

Not much of fan, but I'm staying with friends who are, so I was watching tonight--pretty great (and embarrassing for the Leafs). He's 42, and evidently had a kidney transplant as Sick Kids many years ago.

Astounding

Its big ball chunky time (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Sunday, 23 February 2020 05:05 (six days ago) link

I thought there might be a parallel with baseball; less with a position player mopping up in relief than, say, both catchers going down and sending in a position player to finish the game. I thought that each team must have a skater or two who played some goal as a kid and could finish the game. But my friend assured me that goaltending is so radically different that no skater could ever do it.

i have played goal in shitty pickup games and basically just sat there with my legs out hoping they shoot glove-side. because i cannot be beat glove side. but it is seriously exhausting -- the up and down, and being down on time takes a *lot*
