Daily Links for Friday, Jan. 29

Happy Friday everyone! It's the dog days of winter, apparently, with multiple starters ending up in coach Ruff's doghouse over the last few games. Toni Lydman was "furious" about being a healthy scratch, so hopefully that will translate on the ice. A few days ago, I was "furious" that we ran out of Cinnamon Life for breakfast, but it didn't mean I worked any harder that day. Let's hope Mr. Lydman eats his Cinnamon Life this morning.

The coach and team comment about the infamous doghouse.

Connolly not concerned that the streak is over - WGR 550
Although I was sad to see Tim Connolly's 16 game point streak come to an end, I loved the fact that it wasn't an 18-points-in-16-games streak, but that he scored 25 in those 16 games. Let's start another one tonight.
