*Who knew a game could be simultaneously fun and infuriating? It's game two, though. Way too early to be so crazy. Full story on last night's loss including recap & new goal song here.


*If you're interested in the numbers from Wednesday's Bruins game, this here article is for you. [Let's Go Flyers]

*Pierre-Edouard Bellemare has been one of the brightest spots through two games and is really excited to bring a French presence to the NHL. [CSN Philly]

*Claude Giroux sat down with Canadian John Stewart (Strombo...his name is hard) for a short little interview that's definitely worth your time. [BSH]

*On Chris Pronger moving to Player Safety and why people should stop complaining about the idea of it. [Puck Daddy]

*But people probably won't stop complaining about it. [Deadspin]

*...and we found out right before last night's game that none of this matters, because Pronger has been officially hired. [BSH]

*The Flyers loss on Wednesday can probably be attributed to "jitters". Which seems kind of lame to be honest. [CSN Philly]

*Even Mike Milbury thinks the league should ban fighting outright. [Puck Daddy]

*Thankfully, Gary Bettman doesn't seem into the idea of an outdoor hockey game in Florida. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Brad Marchand had some choice words for the Boston media about their rumor mongering over the summer. The words could probably be applied to the media of another city you might know of. [CBS Boston]

*Remember how no one liked the Washington Capitals' Winter Classic jersey? This is what could have been. [Icethetics]

*Hey, we're two days into the season, so why not predict the NHL Awards? [Puck Daddy]

*The Adirondack Flames have a new mascot. It' was not a good idea. [TSN]

*And finally, NHL ref helmet cameras made their debut and they are awesome. [CBS Sports]
