Making Puck: Peanuts Edition


Last night was the annual airing of the beloved “Peanuts” holiday specials. While you were taking notes on Lucy’s decidedly un-Dr.-Phil self-improvement advice and replicating all of the above dance moves in your living room, hockey was being played.

Of all the Charlie Browns in the world, you’re the Charlie Browniest. Carey Price is sort of the anti-Charlie Brown. He’s really, really good at sports, and the ladies love him. He led the Canadiens to a 4-3 OT win over the Leafs. Alex Kovalev, who has exhibited a great deal of interest in the first half of the season, scored twice, and Andrei Kostitsyn had the game-winner.

You and that blanket. What are you going to do with it when you grow up? Nick Lidstrom has been playing seemingly forever. Still, he is such a security blanket on the blueline that even stiffs like Chris Osgood come away looking like heroes. Lidstrom added two assists, and Pavel Datsyuk had a couple of goals as the Wings beat the Flames 5-3.

Ahh! I’ve been kissed by a dog! I’ve got dog germs! Quick, get the soap! Get the aniseptic! Get the iodine! The Ducks would like to wash their second period against the Canucks out of their mouths. Vancouver scored three times en route to a 4-0 win. Roberto Luongo got the shutout, and Ryan Kesler had two goals.
