Say, have you heard about this Movember thing? It's pretty cool. Everyone is doing it. What you do is you grow a moustache to raise awareness for men's health and money for prostate cancer research. It's really simple to do, too. You just stop shaving your upper lip for a month. We are actually asking you to do LESS work, and rewarding you for it. How awesome is that?
Now, the really fun part is, many other gentlemen are doing the same. You can actually team up and help raise the money mentioned above. It's so awesome, even the entire Wild team is participating. You should help out. Ladies, you too. No Mos for you, but you can still help. Join the Hockey Wilderness team, or contribute to the cause.
After the jump, links about... well, exactly what you think they'll be about.

Red Wings Vs. Wild: Did Mikko Koivu Interfere With Niklas Kronwall Before Winning Goal? - SBNation.com
Koivu laid out an awesomely legal hit on his way towards chasing down his own rebound, and he was able to get off a fancy little pass through a defender to enable Setoguchi to win the game. Instead of blaming the hit, the Wings should maybe blame the penalty that put Minnesota on the man-advantage, or perhaps the blowing of a one-goal lead in the third period, or their goaltender for not making the stop on Setoguchi down low.
