    13 possible names for a Seattle team were leaked:
    Renegades (stupid)
    Totems (former team, but boring)
    Evergreens (frankly lame)
    Sockeye (...okay?)
    Firebird (for Seattle?)
    Eagles (what, no Seagulls?)
    Cougars (Seattle not Pullman)
    Emeralds (....)
    Rainiers (that's a baseball team in Tacoma)
    Sea Lions (ugh)
    Seals (double ugh, and that's a former NHL team)
    Whales (with the whale on the Canucks' jersey and the Seattle rugby team, no.)
    Kraken (...I could go with that.)

    US women's team beat Canada for the gold...but in a shootout.

    Shootout? For a gold medal game? Bunch o' crap.

    This jersey thing with me is getting kind of strange.

    After coming back from an injury and playing one game, Steve Mason is injured again. Maybe it's time to retire.

    Chicago had to use the emergency backup goalie when both their starter and backup (who was just called up, and was making his NHL debut) both were hurt. Fortunately for him, the Jets didn't put up much of an effort to score at that point.

    Dammit Buffalo! Why can't you play like that the rest of the damn season?

    Avs starting goalie, Semyon Varlomov, is out the rest of the season. Playoff hopes crushed?

    So, last day of the regular season (except for the one Sunday game) stuff:

    Henrik Sedin, Daniel Sedin, and Patrick Sharp all play their final games before retiring.

    The Jets and Blackhawks all wear Broncos on their jerseys to honor the Humboldt Broncos after the tragic accident.

    Alain Vigneault fired as Rangers' head coach.

    One of the sponsors for the Winnipeg Jets' radio station is vasectomymanitoba.ca.

    "Score more with Dr. Jay!"

    There was even a commercial with an upbeat song about getting some with worrying about pregnancy.

    Oh, my.

    Golden Knight swept the Kings!

    And the Flames fired head coach Glen Gulutzan.
