Wednesday Wheels: Finns to Skinns

News from the week making the hockey world go ’round…

There is no way to mention ‘world’ and ‘hockey’ without congratulating Finland on their victory over Sweden to claim the ice hockey world championship title. A special congrats to the Hurricanes own Tuomo Ruutu. Boy, do the Finn’s know how to throw a party. Enjoy…

NBC Sports game recap.

World wrap up from FanSided’s own SenShot.

A hero’s welcome from AFP.

Helsinki Times party review.

Vancouver Sun covers a graceful exit by Finland’s assistant coach.

In any sport, there are winners and there are…well, not winners. I refuse to call the Detroit Red Wings losers as their fight was one for the history books. Read all about the series and a look into the future from the Octopus Thrower.

Clearly, I would not dream of including Jeff Skinner in the Wednesday Wheels post as I dedicated seven days to his birthday countdown…

…clearly you don’t read Cardiac Cane regularly. Shame on you.

The now 19 year old was named Rookie of the Year by Sporting News today.

Skinner also impacts a certain bet I took with Jared Crozier of SenShot. The wager is in regards to the Eastern Conference Finals between the Charlotte Checkers and Binghamton Senators. Charlotte trails Bingo 3-0 in the series. It isn’t looking good for my Twitter account. I may be selecting one of these photos after tonight’s game.

Let’s Go Checkers!
