Tantalizing Tuesday: Smick-Smacks to Skinner

As I unveiled earlier in the week, the end of the Hurricanes season does not mean we have to spend the off-season in agony. Today is Tantalizing Tuesday…oh-la-la. It is the best of the best from the hockey world this week.

Let’s begin with a little apparel appeal. The Gongshow Gear unveiled some silly new smick-smacks. They are also running a sweet little deal…free shipping on $150+. Girlies, you are missing out if you haven’t swiped a tank or tee from these northerners. I’m in LOVE with the super soft tops. The razor-twist-back tank will be my summer staple, no doubt.

In the spirit of the upcoming holy weekend, enjoy an insightful read from Fire That Cannon

Sit back with an intense cup of joe, some killer tunes, and the always debatable NHL “wheel of justice” from The Rat Trick.

I was roll’in reading this hilarious game two recap of the Capitals win over New York from Capitals Outsider. Rangers loss plus Homer Simpson is pure bliss in my book. 

Blackhawk Up dives into game four.

There has been much to discuss about the octopus throwing Detroit Red Wings. Read about Detroit keeping it classy in Phoenix by the Octopus Thrower.

Ok, last but never-the-least, Jeff Skinner was officially nominated for the Calder Trophy. Nothing will hold me back from crashing Vegas on June 22nd to see Skinny handed the award for NHL rookie of the year. Instead of making your eyes bleed with my slightly obsessed words of admiration, enjoy the following (less biased) articles on the announcement:

On a not so tantalizing note, the Charlotte Checkers fell 3-2 in Game 3 versus the Hershey Bears at home Tuesday night. Dodge and Boychuk scored for Charlotte. Michael Murphy made a much anticipated return with 20 stops. The rivals face off again Wednesday evening. Let’s Go Checkers!
