Seattle Kraken 5, Joe Pavelski 4: Joe Pavelski became the oldest player in NHL history to score four goals in a game Tuesday night, a losing effort by his Dallas Stars in the playoffs against the plucky Seattle Kraken. Pavelski did not celebrate the way Joe Thornton once said he would if he put four in net.

If it wasn't for the love of Canes, NoMich might be calling for a Kraken - Panthers final.

As much as I like this particular Dallas Stars team, I can't help but root for the team that has John Forslund as their play by play guy. He really did a great job in helping build a hockey culture here in the Raleigh area and is sorely missed because his replacement is awful behind the mic

Pavelski was so good last night. The two deflections deserved to be slowed down and presented like gunfire on The Matrix.

Coming back from an injury that knocked him out of the first series with a four-bagger in game 1 of the next round is such a Joe Pavelski thing to do.

Thornton isn't the only one with thoughts along those lines. Apparently some number of Players have unofficially latched onto a song by some dude named Trey Lewis that I won't link but you can probably find easily enough if you want. Be forewarned though: it's pretty gross, and I say that as someone that listens to all kinds of offensive shit.
