"The following message to fans was issued by the National Hockey League on Sunday: Despite the expiration of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the National Hockey League has been, and remains, committed to negotiating around the clock to reach a new CBA that is fair to the Players and to the 30 NHL teams." - Half Pint from Bookmarklet
Thanks to the conditions fostered by seven seasons under the previous CBA, competitive balance has created arguably the most meaningful regular season in pro sports; a different team has won the Stanley Cup every year; fans and sponsors have agreed the game is at its best, and the League has generated remarkable growth and momentum. While our last CBA negotiation resulted in a seismic... more... - Half Pint

Sharks coach McLellan out after stick hit to head -
"San Jose Sharks head coach Todd McLellan has left his team's game at Minnesota after being hit in the head with a stick on the bench. The team said he was alert and responsive. Wild doctors were treating the injury after McLellan was struck early in the second period on Sunday night. McLellan was down on the bench during a stoppage of play. A stretcher was wheeled across the ice for him, but McLellan was able to get up and walk to the locker room on his own, though he moved gingerly with his body bent forward. Assistant coach Matt Shaw gave the Sharks a quick pep talk, and the game continued." - Half Pint from Bookmarklet

Basketball's done, but still have playoff action. So I get home, turn on a litle Stanley Cup Finals, and it's ALREADY Boston 4, Vancouver 0—and there's still about 6 minutes left in the first period. WTF?

Once again, the #Sharks, they flaunt, they tease, they seduce—they go into hostile Vancouver, and eke out a hard-fought 2-1 lead, and then because they ice the puck with an empty net, they allow the #Canucks to tie them 2-2 with 12 seconds left in regulation. They deserve to lose, because they don't play hard enough to win! #failing
