Enforcer vs Pest

SBN: St. Louis Game Time (rminton618) — Reaves vs Ott Ryan Reaves will make his second appearance of the series in game 3. His last appearance was in game 2 vs Chicago.

What We Learned: How Lightning unlocked Jonathan Drouin’s dominance

Yahoo.com: Puck Daddy (Ryan Lambert) — (Hello, this is a feature that will run through the entire season and aims to recap the weekend’s events and boils those events down to one admittedly superficial fact or stupid opinion about each team.

This Windows wallpaper was a real photo — and here’s the guy who took it

TheStar.com (Patty Winsa - News reporter) — In January 1998, photographer Charles O’Rear was driving from his home in Napa Valley to his girlfriend’s house north of San Francisco when he stopped to take a photograph.
