The Daily Sniper: Never Mind, Chuck Norris IS a Hockey Team

News and notes from last night's action...

From commenter Ryan, the answer to the question that was posted in yesterday's DS.

"If Chuck Norris played hockey, he wouldn't be on a team, because Chuck Norris can play all 6 positions at the same time."

Thanks for the help, Ryan. We can now rest a little easier tonight knowing that!

Chicago 3, Detroit 2 -- It's true. The Hawks compeltely own the Red Wings. Chicago is only 2-2 in this young season, with both of their wins coming against the team for the Motor City. Former Wing Robert Lang and Brent Seabrook each had a goal and an assist to help Chicago overcome a 2-0 first intermission deficit.

St. Louis 4, Colorado 1 -- Even when the Avs lose, Paul Stastny is not to blame. Stastny picked up the Avs lone goal Friday night, as the Blues scored three times in the third (two goals from Dan Hinote) to move to 3-1 on the year. Brad Boyes added his fourth goal of the year for St. Louis.

NY Rangers 3, Washington 1 -- The Rangers handed the Caps their first loss of their first loss of the season thanks to three first period power play goals. Jaromir Jagr had three assists and Scott Gomez scored his first of the year.

Calgary 4, Dallas 3 OT -- Matthew Lombardi is all that is man! Lombardi scored the game tying and winning goals for the Flames last night. Niklas Hagman scored his fifth of the year for Dallas.

Boston 8, Los Angles 6 -- Phil Kessel had a four point night, including his first career hat trick, and Marc Savard had five points en route to the B's second win of the year. Alex Frolov, Anze Kopitar and Ladislav Nagy all had two points for Los Angeles.

Vancouver 5, Edmonton 2 -- So does this mean that the Flyers would beat the Oilers by nine goals? Sam Gagner picked up another two assists for Edmonton, while Brendan Morrison and Kevin Bieksa had two points a piece for Vancouver.


  1. That Paul Stastny seems to be quite the talented young chap, isn't he? /understatement>

    And Chuck Norris would make the Blackhawk logo cry that single tear just by looking at it. It would be a tear of fear.

  2. Wow.... Melrose Rocks has become a little Ryan-centric of late. I find myself both flattered and a little frightened.
