Pink for Moms

Pink sticks to honor moms, raise cash to fight cancer

Some NHL players will be in the pink this weekend on the ice.
In a tribute to hockey moms and to raise awareness of breast cancer, hockey players such as Tie Domi, Mats Sundin, Steve Yzerman, Sidney Crosby and Ed Belfour will use pink sticks during games on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the Chatham Daily News reported Wednesday.
Equipment manufacturer TPS Hockey is spending an estimated $50,000 for the initiative, which sprouted in the Gretzky family home in Brantford, Ont., shortly after the death of Wayne Gretzky’s mother, Phyllis.
“It’s a tribute to hockey moms,” said Brad Janson, TPS’ director of pro hockey.

Belfour out, Tellqvist in for Leafs

Ed Belfour’s bad back may prove to be good for the Toronto Maple Leafs’ playoff chances.
The enigmatic Leaf goaltender missed another practice Wednesday and won’t be playing in Thursday’s game against the Sabres in Buffalo.
Belfour’s injury means backup goalie Mikael Tellqvist will make his second straight start.

    We should all pitch in, buy, and make someone use one those sticks. Denny would look good with one, and we could use it as a tax deduction.

    That stick is a need to have for anyone with a stick bag.
