    • It's one thing to take a puck to the side of the head that opens up a gash that requires five stitches, and it's another thing entirely to gut it out and finish the game before receiving that medical attention... but holy smokes, it's really something else when the injured is a fan. That's toughness. [Puck Daddy]

  • Well this certainly seems hygienic. [RMNB]
  • It's okay, TJ, this is a safe place. [AIH]

  • A couple of notes from up the road in Hershey. [Patriot-News and again]
  • The Caps have some enticing prospects with enticing prospects. [HF]
  • Do some good and bid on one of Reading's ugly Christmas jersey. [Puck Daddy]
