Morning Reading List: Vegas, Baby
Alex Ovechkin (see video above for why he's "Got Hart" -- NHL's words, not mine), Mike Green, Sergei Fedorov (presenter) and co. are in Las Vegas, "relaxing" and getting ready for this year's awards show.
Tarik is en route as we speak, on a plane packed with Caps folk. He's heading over to Ovechkin's poker tournament when he gets into town, so hopefully we'll have some updates this afternoon. (We've also been having a spirited debate over whether or not one can blog from a casino. I say no.)
A few quick Hershey-related links to get the morning going:
* Bears Coach Bob Woods filled some big shoes this season (those would be Bruce Boudreau's). From the Patriot-News:
It's better to follow the guy who follows the guy. So goes the old coaching adage.
Bob Woods didn't have that luxury when he succeeded highly popular and highly successful Bruce Boudreau as head coach of the Hershey Bears on Thanksgiving 2007.
When Boudreau was elevated to head coach of the Washington Capitals, Woods had to follow the guy.
* Also from the Patriot-News, Hershey goalie -- and playoff MVP -- Michal Neuvirth is heading home to the Czech Republic today:
Michal Neuvirth decided at age 6 that he wanted to put on the pads and stand between the pipes as the last line of defense.
Good thing for the Hershey Bears.
Neuvirth's emergence as one of the best goaltenders in the American Hockey League was just what the Bears needed to put them over the top and help them capture their 10th Calder Cup championship.
Morning Reading List is short and sweet, but this blog will show a little life today, so keep an eye out.
