Battle of Ontario and a Weekend Hockey Binge

Is there any NHL goalie that scrambles and short-dives so much? - Grant Halverson

It's a long weekend in the US, so there's a ton of hockey on between now and Monday.

Hockey starts at 3 today, 12:30 tomorrow, and 1 on Monday. The Leafs play a home game (at the ACC) against the Ottawa Senators starting at 7 tonight. Lots of weekend hockey! For now, lots of links:

A HW post (not by BReynolds) consoling everyone who's freaking out about the Wild only being a middle of the pack team following the Parise-Suter signing. It is not a link to all the prediction pieces that expected exactly that.
