[Bits] A little toxic waste never killed anyone

Yup. Splash is still funny. - Jonathan Ferrey

If you can remember what movie that line is from, you win a 1,000 Lighthouse Hockey points for today.

NHL Playoffs

  • Michal Handzus scores for Chicago in double OT to send the series back to Los Angeles for Game 6. Nothing I can write here could possibly sum up that game and its totally bananas first overtime. If you missed it, I'm truly sorry.
  • Game 6 between the Rangers and Canadiens is tonight at MSG, and the Rangers will be without defenseman John Moore, who was suspended two games for elbowing Dale Weise.

Elsewhere

  • Will Barry Trotz and Alexander Ovechkin be compatible with one another in Washington? [Deadspin]
  • Eighties crooner Corey "Sunglasses at Night" Hart will postpone his farewell birthday show at Bell Centre to make room for a possible Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals. [Puck Daddy]
  • Also from Puck Daddy is a gallery of Evgeni Malkin looking uncomfortable meeting world leaders. Just trust me.
  • Forbes ranks the "Most Loyal Fans in Hockey" using a methodology only a banker could love. But look at that: losing teams have the least loyal fans and winning ones have the most die hard bros around. Because surely no human being would possibly pay more attention and spend more money on a team that sends its fans home happy more often than not. Isn't that shocking? Next week a Forbes study shows that winning teams get more TV viewers than losing ones. We have math!
  • Heights and weights of position players across the sports. Point guards, goalies, same thing. [Regressing]

Naturally, our Pokka Post veered off into a discussion about the late, great John Candy. The volume is low on this, but who cares.
