  1. Russian officials, including Medvedev and Putin personally, always call to fix stuff, punish the responsible, tighten the security, etc. every freaking time a fatal accident happens. But with all the corruption that became a norm in Russian society what happens next, someone pays someone else to put a bad plane, train or boat in service, so they can make even more money while saving on maintenance costs. And, unfortunately, this is not the last transportation accident in Russia we have heard or are going to hear about. Don't know how many of you follow the news but there was a ship that sank in Volga river in July of this year with 122 confirmed deaths, 50 of those are children. Same freaking story, old ship, no maintenance done. People in Russia will talk about this particular accident for a few days and forget about it until the next one happens which, believe me, will not take that long. This is the list of all fatal air incidents that happened in Russia over the last 5 years - Russian Air Incidents, about 2 per month, 7 total in July of this year. Most of them we don't hear about because they don't involve the entire hockey team. This is why I'm always surprised when someone leaves NHL to play in KHL where I know they will face so many problems, safety being one of them.
  2. 2006 series, Hurricanes/Canadiens "Brind'Amour appeared to score the go-ahead goal for Carolina 18:38 into the second. Brind'Amour was in the crease when he put in the rebound, and referee Don VanMassenhoven immediately pointed to the net from behind to indicate a goal. Stationed at the blue line, referee Tim Peel had blown his whistle before the puck crossed the line and waved off the goal. That prompted an animated argument from Brind'Amour and the rest of the Hurricanes. "I was standing there and he pointed, 'Goal! Goal! Goal!' and then all of a sudden you hear a guy coming from the bleachers blowing it off," Brind'Amour said. "It was almost surreal." He didn't get fired then, he won't now. F&^%$ joke.
  3. It's 1:1 across the board in all other series except for Caps/Penguins where it's 1:0 but is likely go into 1:1 tomorrow. So what.
  4. Dunno who your cable provider is but the game is on NHLN-US and we just subscribed for NHLTV (we're with Comcast and the channel was turned on immediately). It's only $4.99 a month, so can cancel it in a month if don't need it...
