*Dave Tippett says that Antoine Vermette is the Coyotes’ “Patrice Bergeron” in the amount of things he can do well for Phoenix.

*The Pittsburgh Penguins will have a challenge playing a “heavy” style of game as more and more problems erupt with a talented club beset by injuries.

*The top 10 list of things that Brian Burke’s long, flowing locks make him look like is a well done compilation by Yahoo! Sports.

*Martin Brodeur sets the record for the most goals allowed in the history of the NHL. You have to be a pretty good goalie to play long enough to set a record like that.

*Paul Stewart writes a great piece about hockey officiating, and why it’s among the noblest of hockey professions.

*Ryan Callahan shows the Tampa Bay Lightning the “blueprint” for the way goals are scored, by camping out around the net and making things happen.

*Ted Nolan says he sees a “lack of heart” in a dismal loss by the Buffalo Sabres. My question: is he just starting to see this right now?

*For something completely different: a great moment with Terry Francona and a rookie pitcher that just make the Major League team.
