Linesman Cleans Up After Caps’ Jumbotron Hit By Puck

Linesman Don Henderson came to work today expecting to call some icings and offsides, drop the puck for some faceoffs, and maybe break up a fight or two.    He did not expect to be picking up pieces of the arena jumbotron at center ice.  On Friday night, that’s precisely what the veteran linesman did. When Columbus Blue Jackets center Alex Wennberg’s clearing attempt hit the Verizon Center scoreboard, a piece of the display came crashing down to the ice.  Henderson was there for the recovery: Puck hit the Verizon Center scoreboard. pic.twitter.com/9aAHpNorqc — Travis Hughes (@TravisSBN) October 31, 2015...

Oilers’ McDavid Denied By Quick, Situation Room on Last-Minute Goal

It was a classic Wild West duel.  One one side, rookie gunslinger Connor McDavid, with nine points in his first nine NHL games.  On the other, goaltender Jonathan Quick, with two Stanley Cup rings and one Conn Smythe Trophy on his mantle.  Time was running out. With the Oilers trailing by one in the waning seconds of Sunday’s game, McDavid found the puck on his stick and fired it towards the net. Quick dove, blocking the shot with his glove.  Referee Rob Martell raced over from the corner and grabbed hold of the net. He appeared to be expecting to see...
