Here’s what wonderfully-named store owner (and self-professed Penguins fan) Dewey Guida told the Steubenville Herald-Star about rejecting the Flyers’ future rib advances:
“So many Penguins are my friends, I’ve had so many Stanley cups at my place,” Guida said. “So for sure, let everyone know – I am a Penguin fan, not a Flyer fan.”
“No more ribs for them. And I pray, I hope, that the Penguins beat their skates off.”
The story behind the rib-spurning is actually quite amusing and charming, as you can read in that Herald-Star story. Here’s a nice little synopsis of how the rib merchant and Penguins fan got caught up with those pesky Philly Flyers.
“It started out so innocent,” Guida said with a laugh. “Peter Laviolette and I have been friends for years. It goes back to when he was actually coaching the Nailers in Wheeling. We became friends, and we’ve kept the relationship up over the years, as I have with other coaches, like Scotty Bowman and Eddie Johnston.”
If you’re like me, it’s a great story and all … but now I just want ribs. (Hides all known Flyers memorabilia.)
Despite tough fight, Stars hand Wild their sixth straight loss
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
