It's one of those off days today. It's Monday. Freezing rain last night turned into snow today, which makes me happy, but everyone else miserable. People are likely rather distracted by the fact they had to scrape 1/4 inch of ice off their windows this AM, though. (Hint: start the car, let it run and warm up first, then just slide the ice sheet off.) Ah, Minnesota, I love you.
Hockey news is a bit slow, though. Alex Ovechkin is facing suspension. Who's taking bets on that one? Other than that, nothing much going on. Links after the jump, and enjoy your day. If we missed anything, share it in the comments, would you please?
