  12. Could NCAA teams get into EA's NHL '11 video game?

    May 27, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    There are three things that got me into hockey in the mid-90s. The first was the on-ice brilliance of Mario Lemieux (and also, to a great extent, Jaromir Jagr). Like a bunch of other snot-nosed kids, the artistically devoid but nostalgically rich “Mighty Ducks” movies also drew me into the sport. The last piece of the puzzle,…

    May 27, 2010, 7:10 PM EDT

    There aren’t many head coaches who are wallflowers. After all, it’s their jobs to wear suits and make split second decisions and yell at people who either could be close to their own age or young enough to be their sons. This is not a career path for the meek, weak-willed or shy. Still, even…
