We put a lot of content on this blog each day, and we understand
it can be a bit tough to keep track of everything. So at the end of the
day we’ll put up a nightly recap of all of that day’s news. Presenting
the
Pro Hockey Talk Nightcap:

Assist
of the Night: Marty Brodeur!
– Brodeur with a textbook pass up the
ice, and David Clarkson scores. Great play.

Save
of the Night: Steve Mason
- Mason has had a pretty disappointing
season, but he had one heck of save here.

Jan
Hejda likely out the rest of the season
– The Blue Jackets haven’t
had the best overall season, and now their best defenseman could be gone
for the year.

No
one wants to face Detroit in the first round
– The Red Wings may
not be the most dominant team like they’ve been in the past, but I doubt
there are many teams looking to face them once the playoffs start.

Stempniak
comes out of nowhere…again
– Lee Stempniak actually played well
enough to earn NHL star of the week honors. Imagine that.

Matt
Cooke wins the first-ever Bertuzzday award!
– It wasn’t much of a
contest, as Cooke was deemed the most despicable player of last week.

Once-mighty
Ducks have reason for optimism
- The Ducks’ season may be over, but
here are some reasons to keep the chin up as the season comes to an
end.

College
player Matt Fratin suspended one game
- Not even the WCHA is immune
to dirty hits and controversial punishments.

Alex
Ovechkin’s ‘apology’
- Ovechkin apologizes, sort of.

Vote
for the next Betuzzday winner
- Matt Cooke, meet Alex Ovechkin.

Steve
Downie fined $1,000 for Crosby slew-foot
- I don’t think I will
ever understand the NHL’s punishment policy.

Senators
go for new look to bust out of slump
– It didn’t help, in case you
were wondering.

Jonathan
Cheechoo: Searching for a new start
– Four years ago he had 56
goals. Now he’s in the AHL.

Ryan
Miller deserves MVP recognition
- Forget Alex Ovechkin — although
he’s been great — my vote is for Miller.

Chicago
turns to AHL goaltender for help?
- With Huet down with the flu,
the Blackhawks recalled Corey Crawford. Maybe he can provide some hope.

From
dorm rooms to the NHL
- Casey Wellman was a in college yesterday;
now he’s an NHL player.

Michael
Leighton leaves game with ankle sprain
- Every Flyers can has to be
nervous as heck right now.
