Dan’s Daily Links: Marc-Andre Fleury Shutouts & Donuts

Published

on

Vegas Golden Knights goalie and still Pittsburgh Penguins fanbase favorite Marc-Andre Fleury is hitting his stride down the stretch. The Washington Capitals are in gear with Carl Hagelin. Tributes are still flowing for Jarome Iginla after Calgary retired his number on Saturday and most hockey players are just really good humans.

But if that headline didn’t grab you, what can I say?

Marc Andre-Fleury posted back-to-back shutouts and the city of Las Vegas won free donuts. Fleury, of course, had fun with that, too (USA Today)

The Capitals almost didn’t win four straight but they did and are now have the top spot in the Metro Division. Controversy surrounded the ending but it was the right call. Washington won in a shootout, 3-2. Watch the ending here (NBC Sports).

Penguins fans definitely don’t want to watch this–Carl Hagelin and Tom Wilson have become fast friends with a new pregame ritual (RMB)

Many of my longtime followers, radio listeners, and readers know the story. Jarome Iginla gave some young radio reporter with a microphone and a bit of nerves a few minute interview, after a morning skate. The conversation was fantastic; by the end, he and I were having a time talking hockey and his chance to lead the scoring race. The interview launched my internet radio show (which I was using the production studios at WDVE and 3WS to record) onto the air across Canada and it ultimately began my hockey career. Amazing hockey player. Amazing person.

Mitchell Marner is a good guy, too. Hayden Foulon is seven-years-old and battling leukemia. She made a new friend who has treated the family to games in Toronto and birthday cake. Hockey players are the best. (NHL.com)

While the Capitals have won four in a row and the Carolina Hurricanes have won five straight, the Penguins are rising to meet the challenge, without three top defensemen and a top line winger. Just the way they like it. (Pittsburgh Hockey Now)

    Dan, although I honestly rarely listen to sports talk radio, I’m surprised to have never heard that story about Iginla. That’s great! And, way to just go for it. Great site! And, up to this point I haven’t subscribed. (You give away a lot of amazing free content so I just got used to it) .However, I’m definitely going to change that up as you’ve become one of the only sites that, I not only enjoy to read, but pick up on some subtle things that other sites/analysts/writers just don’t see.
