Daily Dasherboard: Mother’s Day Edition!


It’s Mother’s Day!

That one day of the year when all of us guys promise our mothers, or our wives, that we will take care of the kids, the cooking, the cleaning, and all of the other things moms do on a day-to-day basis . . . only to find ourselves begging for help by 10 a.m. because we cannot even come close to juggling all of the responsibilities that moms handle.

Wait – that’s just me?

Anyway, here are today’s “must reads” around the web!

In case you slept through it last night, the Pittsburgh Penguins eliminated those pesky New York Islanders in overtime of game six.  Bleacher report wonders if this series will finally force the Penguins to wake the heck up!

While I was over at b/r, I also noticed this article predicting which NHL lottery teams will make the playoffs next year.   You may not love what you read . . . .

I know I went WAY out in left field when I picked the Anaheim Ducks to bring home the Cup this year (I’ll be lucky if they can just beat Detroit tonight) but I know a lot of people at least agree with my choice of a Western Conference team winning it all.  Over at Hockey Buzz, the question is posed: can a team from the East bring Lord Stanley’s Cup home?

Here’s a blog hockey moms might want to bookmark.  It was created by Christie Casciano Burns, who reports for 9 WSYR, the ABC affiliate in Syracuse.  If you have had a child go through the hockey experience, I am certain you will appreciate the read!

As a writer and an English teacher, I am always looking for a new read, and while the books on this list may not be for me, they could be something you surprise mom with to help her celebrate her day!

In honor of Mother’s Day, Google has a neat little “game” you can play that kids might enjoy.  In a nice touch, kids can print out their creations to give to their moms!

Back to sports!  Toronto is still looking for its first home playoff win in nine years – can they can earn it tonight in Game 6 of their series with Boston?  I sure hope so, and Wayne Gretzky himself would not be surprised to see it happen!  Here’s why.

Finally, I leave you today with these videos of some of hockey’s greatest moments, including some moments only moms could love!
