The Difference Between Hot…and Not.
It’s always a little sad when the holidays are over. The gifts (oh look! 3-1 Penguins!) are all unwrapped. The papers and bows (or HBO’s) are done and in the bin. Now it’s just January, meaning it’s time to go back to work.
OK, surprising may not be the right word. Not at least with the hot streak Steve Stamkos has been on. Umm…did we say hot?
More hotness…or notness…after the jump.The Lightning also just acquired Dwayne Roloson as net-minder. No spring chicken, the journeyman goalie served time playing for the Wild, Oilers, Blues, and most recently the Islanders…and is expected to get the start tonight.
It’s usually next to impossible to really see what a goalie looks like: way too much blocking the views for our tastes. But with those pucks being hammered into the nets, we’re glad they’re protected, and this shot gives a little taste of what’s under the padding.
And then there’s GM Steve Yzerman. Sure, he’s in the front office now…but as this boy in Red can tell you, there was a time when he practically walked on (frozen) water in Hockeytown.
