Thursday night, I had the pleasure of watching NHL playoff hockey featuring the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators.
Usually I’m taking up for the NHL and hoping their popularity grows. Tonight, I’m relieved hockey’s not as big in the U.S. as some other sports.
On Wednesday night the NHL playoffs got underway (I hope you’ve got your playoff beard started).

The NHL playoffs begin Wednesday and the NBA playoffs start a few days after that.
Finally, somebody gave Matt Cooke what he had coming. In case you haven’t heard of Cooke, he’s one of, if not the most, notoriously dirty players in the NHL.
The Toledo Walleye are in their first year of existence as a minor league hockey team in the ECHL.
I’ve seen some pretty classic coach’s meltdowns in my day with Braves minor league manager Phillip Wellman and Joe Mikulik coming to mind.
