I wanted to write something about trade talk and all that but late at night when I take the time to do this, my brain is mush. So, we’ll table that for later in the week and I’ll give you some fluff for now.
In the spirit of tonight’s game, I present this video from the NHL talking about how all the hockey players love dogs. Well, almost all of them.
Patrick Kane, he of the Chicago Blackhawks, he of dubious character off the ice, doesn’t like pets. Nope. He doesn’t like cats. He doesn’t like dogs. He doesn’t like hamsters, iguanas, or frogs. He doesn’t like any of them and that is wrong.
When it comes to players' favorite pet… it's a 🐶 by a LANDSLIDE. pic.twitter.com/rQOqknwcKZ

Even Tuukka, who has allergies to cats and dogs, still would want a dog. Poor guy sucks it up when he has to pose with dogs for the Pucks and Pups calendar and he wishes he could have a dog.
How can you not love this?
It’s official, Patrick Kane sucks as a person. I bet dogs dislike him. And he doesn’t deserve them.
On to a better, more awesome person, who owns a dog: Patrice Bergeron was named the NHL Second Star of the Week. He only had a million goals and a gajillion assists in the past week, fueled by his 1000th game in the Bruins organization.

The NHL named Patrice Bergeron the second star of the week. But for Bruins fans, he’s always the first star in their hearts.

He is the number one star in all of hearts all the time.
