TOSS YOUR JERSEY ON THE ICE IF youre probably going to throw that David Clarkson sweater you got two summers ago into a bonfire anyway. DONT TOSS YOUR JERSEY ON THE ICE IF you believe the only time a fan should toss anything on the ice is to celebrate a hat trick. TOSS YOUR JERSEY ON THE ICE IF you are deciding between throwing that beer at the players or your sweater, knowing that a brew at the ACC actually costs more than your Made In China knockoff you brought from a guy with a shopping cart on Bloor. DONT TOSS YOUR JERSEY ON THE ICE IF you take the advice of moralizing pundit Cathal Kelly and instead give it to a young fan that doesnt have a Leafs jersey. TOSS YOUR JERSEY ON THE ICE IF you correctly recognize this as child abuse. In the end, we hope that things in Edmonton and Toronto turn around so the jersey tossing will end. Especially in Edmonton, where they probably dont have the disposable income they do in Toronto, where they apparently go through hockey sweaters like most of us go through Kleenex. What We Learned Anaheim Ducks : Bruce Boudreau on Sami Vatanen , who scored two power-play goals on Sunday: Last year, he never hit the net when he shot the puck. Its been five games in [this season], and hes hit the net twice. Thats a real big improvement. Arizona Coyotes: Its anticipation that makes Keith Yandle such an effective player . No word if that includes anticipation for an eventual trade to the East. Boston Bruins : The line of Loui Eriksson , Carl Soderberg and Chris Kelly is apparently the Swede Emotion line, and were always going to applaud an Aerosmith reference over the alterantive Boston cliche. source:–an-etiquette-guide-to-throwing-your-nhl-jersey-in-protest-143803121.html


Thats about it. Dana Wakiji (@FSDwakiji) October 16, 2014 2. Sometimes goalies steal games. Howard almost did it for Detroit, Hiller did do it for Calgary . Hiller stopped 49 of the 50 shots he faced in a 2-1 overtime win for the Flames, providing a nice reminder that weird things can happen in a single game and that the best team on a given night may not always win. 3. The Oilers are a bad defensive team. And shockingly, they seem to be getting worse. Add in some bad Milhouse Vanhouten-level goaltending and you have a team that has already given up 23 goals in only four games. Chances of competing for the Stanley Cup, or even a playoff spot, with that type of goal prevention? Maybe one in a million . Maybe.

NHL scores: Jonas Hiller shuts down Blackhawks; Boedker’s hat trick leads Coyotes –


It was tied 1-all after one period despite Chicago holding a 12-3 advantage on shots. Both teams scored on their first shots of the game. Oduya connected just 1:49 in when he skated in from the left point and leaned into a low shot from the top of the circle that beat Hutton between the pads. Weber tied it with a power-play goal at 11:17 shortly after serving a cross-checking call and exiting the penalty box. His drive from the left circle appeared to strike Chicago defenseman Michal Rozsival , then deflected upward and over Crawford’s shoulder. Chicago outshot Nashville 11-4 in the second, and Hutton made several tough in-close saves late in the period to keep it tied. The Predators picked up the pace in the third, forcing the Blackhawks into turnovers in the Chicago zone and tested Crawford. He made a point-blank pad save on Craig Smith 4:45 into the period when both Smith and Colin Wilson were alone in front of the net following a Chicago giveaway. Game notes Rozsival played his first game after suffering a upper-body injury in training camp last month. … Chicago LW Kris Versteeg , who sustained a lower-body injury in practice two days before the season opener, has resumed skating. … source:
