Light me up that cigarette, and I’ll strap…skates on my feet!

Congrats on setting a new world record...i guess.

Congrats on setting a new world record...i guess.

According to yesterday’s NY Post, Sean Avery was spotted down in the Meat Packing District in NYC over the weekend, huffing lung darts with gal pal actress Catherine Keener.  A good friend of mine who lives in NYC and runs a Hockey & Entainment blog called, The Daily Sauce,  saw Avery back on April 4th  after the Rangers disappointing 1-0 road loss to the Bruins, standing outside a New York City bar with his shirt and tie still on, a bluetooth in his ear and cigarette in mouth.  Now, this article in the Post got me thinking about how we are starting to see a cigarette smoking trend on the Loge,  so I decided to dig a little deeper for all you loyal readers and see if this was a common theme among NHL players.  So kick back, light up a stogie, or two…or three, as I uncover the TRUTH.

Phoenix Coyotes v San Jose Sharks

 

I know this is a day or two late, I only have access to two shared computers that are mostly occupied by some blue hairs checking their Geritol prescription, but on Tuesday night I had the chance to see San Jose take on Phoenix. It was grossly apparent that “The Great One” Wayne Gretzky has been hanging out in the Loge for the past week reading the articles. After my rant earlier this week, regarding the lack of desire the Coyotes showed against the Nashville Predators, the Coyotes certainly picked up their intensity against one of the best teams in the league. This was probably one of the better games I was able to see this year. Although I went into the arena planning on seeing a blow-out, Phoenix really took it to San Jose. This game had pretty much everything you wanted, great goals, big hits, and a lot of fights.
