What will Brendan Shanahan do about this hit to the head? Moral of the story: celebrate in center ice, not near the boards. Bad news is that Krejci missed practice today, but it might have been for dental work after an accidental high stick in the 1st period.

You'd never guess that this was Kelly Shoppach's first MLB stolen base.

Extra crazy information: he stole it against one of the best defensive catchers in baseball today, Jose Molina.

Hmmmm... Working back through the required gestation period and where Crawford played last year, it sounds like the air (or whatever) in the good, old Granite State does wonders.

I have no idea what Shoppach was thinking on that steal. How do you slide 10 feet too early?

Shoppach's stop-drop-and-roll is hypnotic.

It was awesome. I actually have already got a great idea of how I'm going to hang [the base] up. Still photo of me sliding, jumping, kissing the dirt, getting the bag up." -- Kelly Shoppach
