Today is the San Jose Sharks’ scheduled day for NHL.com’s “30 Teams in 30 Days” segment so you may want to stray away from the site for the duration of the day. Unless you want to be bombarded with all that gross teal.

The hockey world suffered a great loss yesterday. It was announced that Shawn Burr had died after falling in his home on Monday. Burr was a part of the Detroit Red Wings from 1983 through 1995. Burr was diagnosed with leukemia in 2010 and devoted much of his time after that to raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
