I am going to preface this post with, I am Minnesota Wild fan, but, I think there was some embellishment on this penalty. Steve Sullivan was given a two minute minor for tripping but it looks like Jared Spurgeon was a little light on his skates.
I am a Wild fan but that looked like a great Robbie Earl impersonation there.

NESN announcer Jack Edwards with the call on Boston Bruins game winning goal, scored by Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron. There was no doubt that it was a goal... Boston Bruins Haters the world over are probably happy it wasn't the Little Ball of Hate.
I would like to recognize Jamestown senior Defenseman Amber Schaak, Amber was named the Senior Athlete of the Year for North Dakota. Amber played for the Jamestown Bluejays for four years and scored (132g-43a—175pts) in 97 games. So Goon’s World would like to Congratulate Amber Schaak. Next season, Amber is headed to Concordia to play for the Cobbers.

In the waning moments of last night’s game, Flyers forward Harry Zolnierczy was given a five minute major and a game misconduct for a hit that he put on Capitals forward Mathieu Perreault. Apparently, Washington Capitals head coach Adam Oates is fine with the hit and didn’t think it was a dirty hit. After reviewing the hit again, I guess, I am fine, with the hit too then.

The end is near, we have this weekend and next
and then the WCHA regular season comes to an end. This friday starts a new month, March, or for some teams the playoff run month.

Alex Ovechkin makes $9,538,462 a year to play hockey for the Washington Capitals and I think Mike Milbury is right to call him out on National television, he played like a bag of ass tonight. If I was the owner of the Washington Capitals I would be upset. If I was a team mate of Ovechkin I would be upset.
From the replay, it does look like the Flyers forward Harry Zolnierczyk catches Capitals forward Mathieu Perreault with a "dirty" knee check, just like Taylor Hall hit Cal Clutterbuck. It's a bit of a different angle so it's not as cut an dry in my opinion. If I was a betting man, and I am, I think a suspension is coming for Zolnierczyk
I would imagine that ...
AV: Kesler had a CT scan this morning. He has a fractured foot.

The Vancouver Canucks look as if they will be missing their all-American diver/fraud Ryan Kesler who has a fractured foot.
#canucks Kesler has a fractured foot. He'll likely be out for a little while according to AV. Maybe 4-6 weeks.

I didn't watch the play live, I was watching the game between the Islanders and the Bruins, however, I do agree with the call and the NHL is making the right call by not suspending Charlie Coyle. I also think that it's about time that the Minnesota Wild finally end up on the right side of a call from the NHL Department of Players Safety.

Each week, I participate in a WCHA Web Media Poll that is put on by the Tech Hockey Guide with 11 other people that represent both the print media as well as the hockey blogosphere.
This week, there is a new number one team, in the WCHA Web Media Poll. The Minnesota Gophers received eight first place votes and vaulted to first place. Coming in second was the Saint Cloud...

Here is this weekend’s National College Hockey television schedule. There is a full slate of college hockey on television
again this weekend. Check your television guide for times in your local area. As with any schedules, channels will change and have in the past.
Even with the NHL ending it’s lockout and making it back to our television dials, there has is still been...
This is one
of my favorite goals in all of hockey and to pull it off, the players have to
be talented and they have to be fast on their skates to make it happen. If you
watch the play in question, it’s like a football play where the quarterback throws
the ball to a set area and the receiver runs to that area and catches the ball,
for a touchdown.

Here is the week 20 WCHA Power Rankings. This season, I have been doing the WCHA Power Rankings with Taylor Seibel, who is a contributor for The Hockey Writers Combine.

Listen to these announcers from the Florida Panthers, the Bruins forward Milan Lucic wold have been better off if he had just challenged Mike Weaver to a fight, than react this way. It was a blown call by the on ice officials.
Weaver just got cross-checked by Lucic. Appropriately heading to the box. 4 minute power play for the #FlaPanthers
— Florida Panthers (@FlaPanthers...
Wow!!! For a big man the Boston Bruins defensman Zdeno Chara moves pretty well. The Florida Panthers center Jonathan Huberdeau, not so much.
Former Edina Hornet and UND defensman Joe Gleason refers to the Edina Hornets as EDINASTY. Senior Edina Hornet Anthony Walsh scores this beautiful goal on a pass from Dylan Malmquist. I love the celebration at the end...
Great effort by the guys in Green and White. I will let the video do the talking.
Not a good weekend by the guys wearing the stripes, I
thought that Scott Bokal and Brian Thul were absolutely brutal. After further
review, it was more Scott Bokal that was the "weak link" in that officiating crew. I
made a comment on the UND game chat that after UND went up 3...

I love being the most controversial writer for this blog after I was so wrong about the outdoor game (despite MANY MANY MANY members of the media and others saying I was right, but who cares about that) so it is time that I ruffle more feathers.
The Game Itself
I hate to say it, but the game was entertaining. I hate to say it because my team lost. Dave Hakstol said that...
