Welcome to a weekly blog post of thoughts and observations from the past few days and/or decades of NHL hockey.
The Three Stars of Comedy
Recognizing the three moments or personalities from around the league that produced the most comedic fodder for fans this week.
The third star: Ilya Bryzgalov’s lightsaber
OK, technically we banned Bryzgalov from the “three stars” feature last year, to give everyone else in the league a fighting chance. But we’ll make an exception this week, because that’s just what we do when an NHL goaltender has to repaint his mask because his picture of Yoda had the wrong lightsaber color.
The second star: Did Scott Gomez score?
Yes! Yes he did! Scott Gomez scored Tuesday, his first goal in more than a year. Which meant a brief (and maybe final?) update for hockey’s most useful website. I will never get tired of you, Scott Gomez Scored a Goal Reaction Guy.
