Alex Burrows and His Lucky Stick?

Like most hockey players, Alex Burrows is very particular about his equipment and superstitions. Much like Mike Green not wanting to give up his record breaking stick to the Hall of Fame, Burrows likes to play with the same stick he started a scoring streak with.

Mics pick up a great conversation

Commissonerdangle sent this to me this morning but I just got around to checking it out. Watch it now before Youtube pulls the video. To give it some context, if you don’t already know, the Blues and Canucks have been in a pretty heated series.

I would love to have a player like Adam Burish or Sean Avery mic’ed up for an entire game just to pick up what the players say to each other. Of course, you cannot mention the video above without watching this one as a compliment.

Thanks to for the link. They have more context to the story.

NOTE: The conversation is a little graphic, if you’re not a hockey player.
