*Despite that soul-crushing third period meltdown, the newly formed first line had another excellent showing. Michael Raffl continues to win hearts and minds. Shootouts are still the worst. Recap!

*ASF had a nice piece on Raffl following the win over Montreal the other day. [Flyers]

*Meltzer on Mark Streit and Shayne Gostisbehere. [Hockeybuzz]

*Shawn Thornton was given 15 games for his attack on Brooks Orpik. He's likely to appeal Shanny's decision.

*HBO's 24/7 premiered this weekend and with it comes Puck Daddy's unofficial 24/7 drinking game. If you watched and played Saturday, you were definitely toasty. [Puck Daddy]

*Rumors are coming out of Montreal that Danny Briere wants out. That was quick. [Habs Eyes on the Prize]

*Speaking of Briere, he's keeping an eye on Sean Couturier. It's hard not to like this guy. [CSN Philly]

*A look at the worst teams in recent history shows just how bad the Buffalo Sabres are. [Hooked on Hockey]

*NHL attendance is down slightly so far this year. [SB Nation]

*On just how long it takes to rebuild an NHL team. [Pension Plan Puppets]

*Steven Stamkos is SKATING. That's ridiculous. [Raw Charge]

*A cool look at a Detroit woman making a difference in Philly via the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation. [Color of Hockey]

*Did you drink this past weekend? If so, did you drink while playing ALCOHOCKEY? If not, you probably weren't drinking right. [SBN]

*And finally, USA Hockey's under-18 team is wearing Star Wars jerseys. Enjoy! [SBN]
