Hockey, and How?

Two thoughts for tonight.

First, here's something the Bruins need to realize, as they head into the third game of their western road trip tonight: no matter how well you play, if you do not score, you will lose. Every time.

Second ... how does this work? How?
As the Boing Boing page was headed, "Physics, or sorcery?"

I love that table! (I assume the weight of the buckets pulling down on the ropes is greater than the weight of the table.)

Actually, no, the weight (force)of the buckets pushing down on the table top is the same as the force of the rope pulling up on the table. It's a fairly simple static freebody diagram. Since nothing is in motion, the up forces must equal the down forces. --Karen in Michigan, who has 3 cats and is a long time Red Wings fan.
