You remember Chuck Sherman a.k.a "The Shermanator" from American Pie. He wet himself at Stifler's party after everyone found out he lied about getting some loving. He was embarrassed and never fully recovered. I wonder how Avs GM Greg Sherman, who is far from a geeky liar, felt after hearing Hall of Famer Peter Stastny, father of current Avs forward Paul Stastny, rip him and the entire Avs organization.

Let the good times roll.

The Oilers have won three straight, Taylor Hall gave fans some afternoon wood after scoring a natural hat trick v. Atlanta on Saturday and once again you can watch an Oiler game without peering through your hands to see how the horror show will end. Life as an Oiler fan is liveable right now, but when you're looking at a fifth consecutive spring without playoffs liveable doesn't equate to satisfied.

I wonder if the Big Guy was thinking about Oiler fans when he said this? The Oil might need some Divine Intervention if they hope to pick up their 8th home win of the season tonight. Yes, if you are season ticket holder, you have only left Rexall seven times with that winning feeling. If you aren't a regular and somehow managed to be at Rexall for a win, consider yourself lucky.

They've lost seven straight at home, and during that span they are 1-for-29 on the PP and have scored a grand total of ten goals. I understand the team isn't that talented or experienced at this point, but they need to start giving the home town crowd something to cheer about.

It's Hockey Day in Canada, as we celebrate the game many of love to play, watch and critique. Most of us have played hockey on an outdoor rink, where the sounds of the game seem so natural and simplistic. Whether it is your blades cutting into the ice, or how your stick echos when you recieve a hard pass, the thud of the puck hitting the boards on a just-missed shot or the sweet "clink" of the puck going off the post and into the net, those sounds are what make hockey great.
