Ballard and his hips are taking their talents into Rexall Place tonight to face the Oilers.
He'll probably get a penalty for that hit, though.

Game Day Recon: Game #6 - Rangers @ Canucks

The Rangers don't visit Vancouver often, but when they do, you can expect the start of the game to be pre-empted by baseball. Or CFL. Or poker. Or a repeat of the 2007 X Games. Or a spelling bee.

Keep up the good work, TSN. Your ability to plan a game schedule rivals that of an unconscious Daschund.

Though his death was nearly two months ago, and his body has long since been laid to rest - for those of us who rooted for him, admired him and, yes, in the indirect way that sports fans embrace their heroes, came to love him - tonight Rick Rypien comes home.

So we've been satiating your appet....wait...you've been licking your li...still too animal-like hm...How about: we've been making noises....oh for goodness' sake!

Here it is, the first edition of Wolf Prowl, the Army's weekly rundown of the Chicago Wolves. Yesterday we brought you an interview with Ted Gruber, noted (by some, well me and Drance anyway) as guru of the Wolves blogging scene. During pre-season we talked to Jason Shaver, play-by-play man of the Wolves, but today is a different, well, beast. (The animal analogies seem unavoidable, don't they).

She's angry and so am I.

Today I continue my weekly feature of me venting and raging on stupid crap happening with the Canucks, their fans and around the NHL. Two things about feature... 1) It will appear (hopefully) every Monday, and 2) It is blatantly ripped off from a stand-up bit from comedian Craig Anton. On either point, I make no apologies. Enjoy.
