Ari's Weekly Hockey Favorites, Vol. 1

From the authoritative Ari Goldberg-Strassler:

Hockey Name of the Week - Cal Clutterbuck, Minnesota Wild

Hockey Clip of the Week - Rob Schremp, New York Islanders, who apparently has a background in baseball

Hockey Game of the Week - Anaheim 3, Chicago 1.  The Ducks get outshot 43-12 by the Blackhawks, 34-6 following the first period, and still manage somehow to win.  Losing goaltender Antti Niemi gave up two goals on six shots in the first, and then put up his feet and watched his teammates unsuccessfully bombard Anaheim goalie Jonas Hiller.

I don't think Ari would mind if I add in a hockey article of the week:  Vancouver's Alex Burrows is pretty sure that referee Stephane Auger does not like him.
