Some Hockey Thoughts

As the end of the regular season approaches, there's a possibility of a fun new piece of hockey trivia coming up: how do you score a goal in an NHL game you don't play?

Tomorrow night, Columbus and Dallas are playing the make-up game for the one that was called off last month, when Rich Peverley's heart stopped on the bench*. The league announced that the game would play from the beginning (it was stopped early in the first period), but that the score would start 1-0, since Columbus had scored in that game.
*If you aren't familiar with it, the summary is that he was revived, and has since had surgery; he's "fine" for now, hoping to play again.

Here's the catch: Nathan Horton, who scored that goal, is out with an injury and may not be able to play in the make-up game. Cool, eh? Assuming Horton doesn't play, that becomes one of my favorite hockey trivia questions, along with the one about who scored all five types of goals in one game.

Also, if you're a hockey fan and on Ravelry, I found a thread in the Puck This group with hockey lolz, and oh, so funny! Such as:
It's an awful lot of fun, I must say.
