Tantalizing Tuesday: Detroit to Vegas


You survived Monday caniacs! Good for you! Your reward is a tantalizing Tuesday treat.

  1. The NHL playoffs are packing some intense emotions this season. Quite possibly the best example from the past week would be the Red Wings sweep over the Pheonix Coyotes. While Wings fans rocked Detroit, fans in Arizona tried to contain their disappointment to show their Coyotes respect. Enjoy a great recap and video from the Octopus Thrower.
  2. You have to check out the Green Biscuit from How to Hockey.The Green Biscuit is the perfect puck for concrete or asphalt. So, gather your buddies and organize some summer street hockey. How to Hockey even provides a discount code for $10 off orders over $100.
  3. With 55 days and counting, it is time to get pumped for the NHL Awards in Vegas. The Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy nominees were announced today. Candidates for the Frank J. Selke Trophy will be announced Wednesday.
  4. Jason Chimera’s goal in the second overtime to beat the Rangers in Game 4 was a moment worth another read. As we know, Caps went on to the eliminate the Rangers. FanSided writers for the Rangers and Capitals made a friendly wager on the series, be sure to check out the hilarious results here.
  5. Although, I am not a Blackhawks fan, Sunday’s win over Vancouver was one of the best from this past week. Enjoy an entertaining read from the Blackhawk Up crew.
  6. I’m thrilled to include Carolina Hurricanes’ cousins, the Charlotte Checkers, in Tantalizing Tuesday. Sunday night, the charismatic AHL team eliminated two-time Calder Cup winners, the Hershey Bears! Hootie-who!

Alright puck heads, hope you had your hockey fill for the day!

    Hey KP thanks for the mention of the Green Biscuit, I gave you a FB like. I use the Green Biscuit more than any other training puck, and I have tried a bunch of different pucks. In regards to #5 on your list I am watching the Canucks vs Hawks game right now. Game 7 very exciting, as a Canadian I have to root for the Canucks.
