    I will have to miss the Boxing Day game. My sister doesn't have cable. But I told Mr. Sweetpea to head to his Dad's for the game...I couldn't deprive him of that! My Canucks are doing well. Great game last night after a tough OT loss in Detroit. The Sedins are on fire!

    WTG Team Canada! The game was held in Buffalo, I'm near the boarder. It took over 2 hours to cross, some parked their cars on the Canadian side and walked over! At $105 per ticket, I'd be walking over the bridge as well! There was also a Bills game, so it was havoc, I stayed clear of that area!

    I'm looking forward to Tuesday's game against Czech Republic.

    It's ridiculous how much cheaper the games are in Buffalo this year! A huge benefit to those that live close enough.

    Tickets are always cheaper in Buffalo for anything. You'd be lucky to get nosebleads in Toronto for $100 during the regular NHL season.

    The arena is full of Canadians, the dollar is pretty much at par so its a great deal. They are up 5-1 right now. US vs Slovakia is on at 8pm, I haven't seen them play yet, I think I'll watch that game too!

    Nashville Predators' Tootoo enters substance abuse facility | tennessean.com | The Tennessean

    The Predators will be without Jordin Tootoo for an indefinite period after the popular forward voluntarily entered a substance abuse facility on Monday.

    The National Hockey League announced Tootoo would receive treatment as part of the NHL and NHL Players' Association Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program.

    What he is being treated for and the location of the in-patient facility were not disclosed.

    "We offer Jordin the full support of his teammates, coaches and the organization," Predators General Manager David Poile said in a statement. "There is no timetable for his return and we will have no further comment at this time."

    Tootoo will keep his full salary and benefits and will have no penalty imposed provided he complies with treatment and follow-up care, the league said.

    The feisty forward has four goals, six assists, 47 penalty minutes and twice has been a healthy scratch, most recently Dec. 22 against the Blackhawks.

    His lone multipoint game was a two-assist performance against the Coyotes on Nov. 3. He drew a standing ovation at Bridgestone Arena after his fight with Rangers agitator Sean Avery on Nov. 27.

    To replace Tootoo, the Predators signed and called up forward Chris Mueller from Milwaukee of the American Hockey League.

    In 33 games for Milwaukee, Mueller had 20 points. His one-year, two-way contract is worth $500,000 at the NHL level, $55,00 at the AHL level.

    That's too bad for "22", at least he's getting the help he needs. He was the first Inuit to be drafted by the NHL, such an accomplishment from an area that has a very serious problem with kids drinking sniffing glue, smoking whatever etc. He had an older brother who committed suicide at the age of "22", I hope he gets his life straightened around.

    I could not find the US vs Slovakia on any station. What's up with that???

    ETA: I just checked, its only televised on NHL network USA, geez! I'll have to find a stream.

    I have to say though, I am honestly not that surprised about Tootoo. It's unfortunate, but from my years around the WHL, definitely not surprising.

    Another interesting game yesterday with Canada. I'm wondering what will happen with that hit.

    BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Canada's Zack Kassian and two Slovakian players were slapped with suspensions Wednesday for hits to the head after a night of ugly incidents at the world junior hockey championship.

    Kassian was handed a second game on top of the automatic one-game suspension he got for taking a match penalty for a check to the head of defenceman Petr Senkerik during Canada's 7-2 victory over the Czech Republic on Tuesday night.

    Slovak defencemen Peter Hrasko and Marek Marincin were given three- and four-game bans for hits that injured American players Jerry D'Amigo and Jason Zucker.

    The match penalty Kassian was assessed carried an automatic one-game suspension. Tournament disciplinarian Dan Marouelli ruled it warranted an extra game. Kassian was to miss a game Wednesday night against Norway and Friday's key matchup versus Sweden.

    The Slovak penalties were deemed more serious.

    An IIHF statement said Hrasko "deliberated targeted the head of the American player, using his elbow and upper arm to deliver the blow and causing D'Amigo to be thrown violently against the boards. D'Amigo struck his head against the glass, sustaining an injury."

    D'Amigo, a Toronto Maple Leafs prospect who plays for the AHL's Toronto Marlies, also played on the U.S. team that won gold at the world junior event last year in Saskatoon.

    Zucker was nailed by Marincin well after the play and the U.S. forward was groggy as he was helped from the ice. The IIHF called it a "premeditated act" that "deliberately targeted the head."

    The federation said it has strict rules on dangerous hits.

    "These are not limited just to the head but to the neck area as well, which is defined by that part of the body above the collarbone and shoulder pads (i.e. unprotected areas)," the statement said.

    Canada also saw forward Jaden Schwartz and defenceman Calvin de Haan leave the Czech game with what coach Dave Cameron called lower body injuries.

    He said Schwartz was a "more of a longshot" to play against Norway while de Haan would be a game-time decision.

    "It is adversity losing those guys," said Canadian forward Brett Connolly. "De Haan is a returning guy (from last year's team) and Schwartz and Kass have been contributing a lot.

    "Guys will have to step up and play for them the next couple of games."

    The six-foot-three Kassian lined up Senkerik, who was cruising through the neutral zone with his head down as he carried the puck, and levelled him with a shoulder hit. The crowd at HSBC went quiet as the 19-year-old lay on the ice but looked to be talking and moving as he left on a stretcher.

    At first the officials were not going to call a penalty, but discussed the play as a group and opted for a match penalty while Senkerik was being treated on the ice.

    Kassian is a key player who skated on a top line and power play that scored on seven of 12 opportunities in Canada's first two games.

    But he is no stranger to suspensions.

    Last season, the Windsor Spitfire was slapped with a 20-game ban for a vicious hit to the head of Matt Kennedy of the Barrie Colts.

    "He's been suspended before and he knows how to deal with it," said Canada's captain Ryan Ellis, who is Kassian's teammate in Windsor. "You've just got to be there as a friend for him and tell him we'll do our best to win the games for him.

    "He's changed his game a lot this year. Last year he was just a physical body who contributed a few points. Now he's one of the leading point-getters in our league. He has almost two points per game. I wouldn't even say he straddles the line. He just plays hard and he's a big kid."

    Kassian said after the game he was happy Senkerik appeared to be OK.
    Glad everyone is okay...
