–EDIT 8:52PM MT–
I’ve had some more time to absorb today’s news that Steve Yzerman is the new GM of the Tampa Bay Lightning.  I was stunned this morning when I woke up to find the announcement on Twitter.  Stunned, but honestly, not overly surprised.  I think that we all knew …

It’s all life or death from here on out.
The 1975 Islanders were the last NHL team to rally back from a 3 game to none deficit.

Check it out here.  This week has George Malik of Snapshots, Jessie from Bingo Bango, and Michael Petrella from The Production Line joining Chris.
