Jordan Eberle’s natural hatty, Brayden Schenn’s new suit, Red Wings rolling without McMillan
A few leftovers from the half-week that was …
The highlights don’t really do justice to a natural hat trick when its entire life span is less than three minutes, but check out the below video of Jordan Eberle’s first-period snipe job for the Oklahoma City Barons on New Year’s Day. Total time between his first and third goals – 2 minutes 43 seconds.
Thanks to the fine folks at Puck Daddy for bringing us the Adirondack Phantoms’ New Year’s Eve jerseys, which were worn by the likes of Saskatoon’s Brayden Schenn and Moose Jaw’s Scott Munroe in the Phantoms’ 4-3 loss Monday to Bridgeport. Munroe was apparently impervious to the jerseys’ super powers, as he was pulled halfway through the game after allowing three goals on 17 shots. But when you look that good, seriously, who cares?
Dwight McMillan’s retirement/resignation/firing/shootingoutofacannon hasn’t hurt the Weyburn Red Wings at all in the short term. Jackson Schneider scored the winner Tuesday with 0.2 seconds left to give the Wings their second straight win over the Estevan Bruins and a sweep in the teams’ annual post-Christmas home-and-home. Early quote-of-the-year candidate from Schneider: “I saw it go in and looked at the clock and saw there was time left and nearly had a heart attack I was so excited.”
And finally, that brouhaha in Alabama last week earned former Bruins forward Anthony Collins a three-game suspension for throwing a couple punches from the bench. A total of 28 games in suspensions were handed out Monday. Hockey in Alabama … what’ll they think of next?
