There’s probably more, but this is good enough. That’ll do pig, that’ll do.
In case you missed it here is the USA’s Johnny Gaudreau filthy, filthy goal he scored against Germany on Tuesday:
Gaudreau, signed with the Calgary Flames by way of Boston College late this season and scored a goal in his only game with the team. He was just a 4th round pick in the 2011 draft due to his size, 5’8″ and 153 lbs., but has shown the ability to score every where he’s played. Look out for him next year with the Flames. Dude is going to light some lamps.

Here’s your bracket. Fill it out and you’ll also not win a billion dollars.
SPHL (low minor leagues) Columbus Cottonmouths’ goaltender Andrew Loewen busts out “The Wobble” in the tunnel before his team came out for the 3rd period. Dude puts the rest of the troop to shame. Goalies rock!
This game Loewen was backing up Canadian Women’s Olympic Gold Medal goalie Shannon Szabodos so Andrew had a bit of time on his hands. Time that he used to DANCE! DANCE!! DANCE!!!
Szabodos and the Cottonmouths lost to the Knoxville Ice Bears 4-3, but are there really any losers when stuff like this ends up on YouTube? PengoSports sez, “NO!” So good on you Andrew Loewen!
Loewen is 20-15-1 with a 2.73 GAA and a .913 save percentage this year. So when he’s not dancing, or backing up Olympians, he’s putting up good numbers for the playoff bound Cottonmouths.
Looking at the Gazette.com tonight when I saw this tease for Air Force hockey:
Yeah, they are going to Buffalo this weekend to take on Canisius. So, it should be cold, but ‘Witch’s Teat’ cold? And does the cold make the teat ‘tough’?
Hell, maybe Air Force hockey team is full off AG majors and are going on a field trip to get the poop on Winter vs Teats. To us, it just sound kind of weird.
Click the above image to read the full article from AGWeb.com if you want/need to know more about the age-old battle between Winter and teats. But, unless you run a dairy it’s about as interesting as it sounds.
Or it could have been a typo. Anyways, go Air Force! Beat the Teats Golden Griffins!
Air Force swept first place Mercyhurst last weekend with a 5-3 track meet win on Friday and followed up with a 2-0 victory in a defensive battle on Saturday. The Falcons picked up 4 big points from the conference leading Lakers in their bid to secure a top 4 slot in the Atlantic Hockey playoffs .
The Falcons’ Chad Demers (duh-MERZ), #17, scored Saturday’s game winner with 1:34 to go in the game. To say he, and the team, were excited would be an understatement.
Air Force hosts RIT on February 21 & 22 to close out the regular season home schedule. Get your butt out there and watch some damn good hockey.
