Odds 'n Ends

There's a new addition to our sidebar list of blogs. It's called "College Hockey Blogs--Your favorites all in one place." This blog lists clickable headlines from posts on 38 different college hockey blogs--this one included. It's any easy way to access those blog posts you may find to be of interest--for example, Teddy Purcell's defection to the pros and the NCAA's release of Academic Progress Rates (APRs).

Blog reader slik4 brings to our attention a connection between the #20 ranked BU women’s lacrosse team (which beat UNH tonight to advance to the America East final) and college hockey. Freshman attacker Jenny Taft from Edina (Justin Maiser’s hometown) is the daughter of former University of Wisconsin defenseman John Taft, who played on NCAA champions in 1973 (Boston Garden) and 1977, and later in the NHL. Jenny was also an all conference hockey player in Edina.

Stop me if you've heard this before. Chris Drury scored a critical goal tonight in a Stanley Cup playoff game. Yes, for the umpteenth time, Captain Clutch came to his team's rescue. In game 5 of the Conference semifinals between Buffalo and the Rangers, Drury's scored with 7.7 seconds left in regulation to tie the game and keep the Sabres from falling behind in the series, 3-2. Instead, Buffalo won in overtime, 2-1, and can close out the Broadway Blues in game 6. For Drury, who has 14 career playoff GWGs--4 of them in overtime--, this was the first post-season game he's sent to overtime.

Not to take this off topic, but man, that Jenny Taft looks really cute.
