The Office Blooper Video
Bickel gets called for a cross check later there after the Wings were getting away with murder in front of their own net all game long. Toews in particular got a bunch of cross checks after the whistle on the same play.
That said, they must be on our side!
For the first time in 60 years of Swiss hockey, Switzerland emerged a silver medallist, from Saturday's gold medal game against host country Sweden.
Disappointed, but proud. Those were the Swiss, undefeated in this tournament. Coached by Canadian Sean Simpson and led by Nashville Predators Roman Josl, also named MVP of tournament.
Congratulations, Team Switzerland!
Meanwhile, the Vancouver Canucks' Sedin twins dominated and led Sweden to it's gold medal victory. The first time in 27 years that a host country last won a gold medal on home turf.
The U.S. beat Finland 3-2 to take the bronze.
Our Team Canada finished fifth overall. (*groan*)
Ah, summer, that time of year we wait for....cool smoothies, mouth-watering bbqs, cool refreshing thirst quenchers, and....nice weather on the horizon, Canada....
According to the forecast predictions set forth by Accuweather (Canada), summer in this nation will bring us variable weather across the regions & provinces. Hot days interspersed with cool days in-between, dry spells interspersed with rain/thunderstorms (in some places, a little stormier), etc.
A warmer than average summer predicted for much of Atlantic Canada has turned up as one of the surprises in the forecast, said Anderson.
Residents living in Montreal through to Quebec City can also expect the mercury to rise.
...the weather in southern Ontario is expected to be pleasant, with hot periods broken up by what’s expected to be welcome cooler days, although some thunderstorms are expected earlier in the season.
...regions from southern Saskatchewan to southern Alberta are expected to sweat it out for much of the season.
...,areas between Edmonton, Winnipeg and the U.S. border should brace for a higher-than-normal amount of severe thunderstorms this summer, as well as some very warm spells.
Drier conditions...in much of southeastern British Columbia....most balanced temperatures are...for Vancouver and southwestern parts of the province.
....soggiest spots this summer are likely to be the northern Prairies and areas of northwestern Ontario particularly around Lake Superior, including Thunder Bay and Sault Ste Marie.

Possible to land any of these...Cal Clutterbuck, Keith Yandle, David Clarkson...?
In summation...from Commander Hadfield...
Ever the diehard Leafs fan, Hadfield added that he's proud of the way his team played this year and he's looking forward to next season.
"I am so proud of how the Leafs did this year," he said. "They played really good hockey, entertaining hockey, motivated and creative hockey."

So, Toronto FC, it's been awhile, how are things going?
In one word, simply...awful.
The TFC lost it's fourth straight Saturday, 1-0 to the Columbus Crew at BMO Field.
The TFC (1-6-4) are currently winless in nine games (five losses and four ties) and sport just one win dating back 25 games to last season. Oh Lord, help this team!
Here's the story:
San Jose 2 Los Angeles 1. Kings lead series 2 games to 1.
Talk about role reversal. In Game 2, a 4-3 win by the Kings, it was the Sharks penchant for marching to the penalty box (that included a controversial over-the-glass delay of game penalty), that gave L.A. all the powerplay opportunities to score some game winners.
Here, in Game 3, it was Los Angeles that marched to the penalty box (including a controversial interference call on the Kings Trevor Lewis for crashing Sharks goaltender Niemi, plus add to that a game misconduct to Kings goalkeeper Quick for arguing with the officials), that gave San Jose a two-man advantage in the opening minutes of overtime.
What made this all the more damaging to the Kings is that all of their penalties were incurred at the start of the overtime period by what the Kings felt was questionable refereeing.

Detroit 4 Chicago 1.
The 're-energized' Red Wings emerge victorious in Game 2, as Detroit made the most of it's scoring chances as they played a much more physical game against the suddenly outplayed Hawks.
With the win, the series is now tied at 1 game apiece.

According to reports, MLSE courting Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri, whose contract is said to expire with the Nuggets organization. Ujiri was the first African-born GM in NBA history.
Are we discussing Mayor Ford being an (alleged) crackhead anywhere?
If, as stated, "prominent Torontonians" are using/smoking crack/drugs, what would prevent one of these "prominent Torontonians" to be Rob Ford himself?
Im no Penguins fan but they stand a good chance of beating the Bruins along the way and Im all for that.. Go Pens.. Oh and seeing Ottawa lose is pretty cool too
Yes, I think so. If there is one team that can handle and dispel the Bruins in these playoffs, is Crosby and his Penguins. (You know who I'll be cheering for).
Despite losing to them, I gained allot of respect for the Bruins. Especially #17. That's what the Leafs need.... a 17.
I still don't like Boston but am willing to give them their due respect & credit. Players such as Lucic and Marchand are the reasons for my dislike of the Bruins, but then again, as you state, that #17 was a difference maker...
