I really just saw bits and pieces of the Rangers-Canucks game but there was everything in it and Dan Hamhuis is a lot worse for the wear. Oh and hey, the Rangers have lost 6 of their last 10 games. [Sportsnet]

Good night and good luck to Alex Semin, the prototypical enigmatic Russian who has left the NHL for the greener pastures of the KHL by agreeing to a deal with Metallurg Magnitogorsk. [The Score]

*A good article on what the likes of Alex Ovechkin can learn from TJ Oshie about the art of the shootout. [Hockey Graphs]
