*Craig Berube's nickname, coined during his playing days, has taken on new meaning now that he's the boss. [Daily News]

*A lot was made of Kimmo Timonen's six million dollar contract extension when it was signed last year. Turns out, he's earning it. (But that turnover last night...oof.) [BSH]

*The proliferation of the loser/Bettman/charity point has given new meaning to .500. [Pension Plan Puppets]

*Nice little fanpost here examining the team's numbers with Emery in net vs. Mason. [BSH]

*Oilers goaltender Ben Scrivens set an NHL record on Wednesday night, most saves in a shutout. [SB Nation]
