A Somewhat OK Friday

Looking at the latest news on this 'Good' Friday...

(What the hell is so good about today, anyway?)

First, I have a couple of sick goal highlights for you to watch - Gifts from the Easter Puck Bunny (mmmmm...)

My pal David(ada) pointed me to this video clip of Jaromir Jagr scoring an OT winner for Omsk in their recent 4-3 playoff win over Magnitogorsk. Ol' Jags goes end to end and makes a deposit in the old net bank.

If you thought that was impressive, then check out THIS clip of Rob Hisey during the Barrie Colts Skills Competition.

I don't want to ruin it for you, so just go watch it. Trust me, it'll leave you speechless.

In their effort to improve the partnership between the warring factions, the NHL has launched an official complaint against the NHLPA, TSN Reports:

TSN has learned the NHL has formally filed an "unfair labor practice" complaint with the National Labor Relations Board in the United States over the NHLPA's apparent policy that any NHLPA member who were to become a replacement player next season would have to re-pay the lockout "stipend" he is currently receiving from the union.
I'm sure the NHL has altruistic motives here...riiiight.

Czech League Playoffs

OK, so the clock hasn't struck midnight yet for Vitkovice. No Malik, No Hubacek, No problem! The Cinderlla boys beat Zlin yesterday with a 3-2 OT win, and then took a commanding 3-1 series lead with a 3-1 win today.

Marek Pinc, the midget goaltender who covers about 1/5 of the net, made 36 saves for the win. I don't know how the guy makes so many saves - Almost every picture I ever see of him shows him with his eye closed. Maybe it's his special Keebler Elf powers?

"Oh no! I locked the keys in my car!"

Over in in the Slovak Playoffs, Zvolen couldn't wrap up their series with a sweep as Kosice took Game 4 by a 4-2 score.

Jiri Bicek, who is a good candidate to make the Slovak World Championships team, had a goal and two assists to stave off elimination for one more game.
The frustrating line of Zednik-Handzus-Orszagh was held pointless.
