  • The Lightning kept him off the score sheet in his return to Tampa on Wednesday, but Martin St. Louis finally scored his 1000th NHL point yesterday against Vincent Lecavalier and the Philadelphia Flyers (with video). [Pro Hockey Talk]
  • In honor of Black Friday, here is a ranking of every black sweater in the history of the NHL. The Lightning's original threads got a top-15 rating. [Puck Daddy]
  • Reports came out the other day that Martin Brodeur was getting the chance to practice with the St. Louis Blues. Yes, it actually happened. And yes, it looks just as weird as we all thought it would. [Pro Hockey Talk]
  • Despite the need for a goalie after the injury to Brian Elliott, one writer explains why Brodeur might not be the answer. [St. Louis Game Time]
  • The 24/7 series on HBO leading up to the Winter Classic is no more, but it has been replaced by a similar series on Epix ahead of the Capitals-Blackhawks matchup on New Year's Day. Here is the trailer for the four-episode series. [Washington Post]
  • A couple weeks ago, it was reported that longtime Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson was expected to soon call it quits. Well, it looks like he will almost certainly make it official when he returns to Ottawa to be part of a pre-game ceremony on December 4. [CBC]
  • We probably don't need to remind you that the Edmonton Oilers are a mess but provincial rivals and divisional foe, the Calgary Flames,would be glad to do so. [Flames Nation]
