Ooops - Keep Your Hands on That Cup!
Okay you wild Red Wings party animals - you'd better keep both hands on that Cup! Apparently the legendary hardware suffered a ding in the hands of some Red Wings players while they were visiting Chris Chelio's restaurant, Cheli's Chili Bar! That looks like a totally fun place and it will definitely be on my itinerary should I ever pass through Detroit! The NHL must have called in the trophy trainers as they were able to "smooth the dent out" and Stanley is back to normal....
On another note, the NHL made a little "oops" when T-shirts honoring Alex Ovehckin as the Hart Trophy winner accidently went up for sale on the NHL Web site. The "oops" factor is due to the fact that the award-winner isn't officially announced until the NHL Awards in Toronto next Thursday. Now of course all of us in Caps Land know that Alex is a shoe-in and it shouldn't be a big surprise to any hockey fan when he does stroll up to the podium for his speech on Thursday. Kudos to the other nominees as well: Jerome Iginla of the Calgary Flames (who totally rocks) and Evgeni Malkin of the Penguins.
