Clearing the blare: LCA goal horn a recording from Joe - The Detroit News
Finally, the big writeup on the goal horn issue at least answering the questions of what's going on with the horn, confirming that it is indeed a recording, why the Wings did it, and whether they're planning on doing anything about the fan complaints (no).

Sidney Crosby Should Hear From Department of Player Safety After Braden Holtby Hit - Defending Big D
DBD compares Crosby running Holtby the other night with a hit that got Cody Eakin suspended for four games. Personally, I think the Eakin hit was twice as bad due to the increased speed and angle that Eakin had versus Crosby. I don't believe Crosby did enough to avoid contact (he should have trailed his shoulder instead of led with it), but I have to at least admit there's benefit of the doubt available there where there isn't on the Eakin hit. However, a four-game suspension being twice as bad as the hit we saw, I at least agree that no suspension for Crosby is bullshit.
