Apparently Joe Thornton plays defense for the Blues

There was a fun goof prior to the Blues-Jets game on Fox Sports Midwest. While showing the lineup for the night, the team’s defense had an unfamiliar face. Skating with Petteri Lindbohm was #19 … Joe Thornton? Via r/StLouisBlues:   It would’ve made more sense had they shown Jay Bouwmeester (also #19) in this graphic, but Thornton? Not even close. Wrong team. Wrong position. Just wrong.

RECAP: Game 66. Undeserved fate. Pens fall in shootout despite badly out playing Sharks.

The Penguins deserved to win this game.  But, they didn’t.  There is no other way to look at it. In the third period, the Penguins came in waves.  Shift after shift.  The Penguins first and second lines threw everything they had at the Sharks.  It was easily one of the best games anyone has seen Sidney Crosby play in awhile. He tied the game on a wicked backhand and, from...
