Morning Player Notes (Mar 22)

The New York Islanders will be without forward Valtteri Filppula for the remainder of the regular season, as he has been sidelined with an upper-body injury, an injury suffered in Boston on Tuesday night.  Filppula's regular season was sub-par, even on a surprising team like the Islanders this season, posting 15 goals and 29 points in 71 games this season, only good enough for 281st in pool [Author: Clayton Corley]

Morning Player Notes (Mar 12)

The flu bug was pretty active on Monday night, biting Columbus Blue Jackets forward Boone Jenner and holding him out of the lineup against the the Islanders, a game they would have liked to have won to help their playoff cause, but instead dropped, 2-0.  Jenner has been a pretty good spark plug at times for the team, potting 12 goals and 31 points in 64 games this season, ranking him 235th in [Author: Clayton Corley]

Morning Player Notes (Mar 9)

On Friday night, the Panthers opted to give Sam Montembeault his second start of his NHL career and at the same time, welcomed James Reimer back into the healthy fold, by dressing him as his backup.  This meant that Roberto Luongo got the night off for the Panthers, which is a well-earned rest, as he was pushing pretty hard for the team down this last stretch.  The unfortunate part for the [Author: Clayton Corley]

Afternoon Player Notes (Mar 5)

Well, there are some early lineup notes to look at before the action gets started today, so let's kick right into it. The Dallas Stars are expected to scratch Alexander Radulov for tonight's game against the New York Rangers. Obviously, he's drawn the ire of the team's coaching staff and will get a seat up in the press box. The Russian only played a little over 16 minutes in the team's last [Author: Clayton Corley]

Playing a little catch-up after a busier finish to the week at the office. From Thursday night, Jamie Oleksiak was a healthy scratch for the first time since returning to the Dallas Stars in a trade from Pittsburgh, sitting out against the Kings.

Cold vaccine tests show promise

The bad news: there's no cure for the common cold, because there's no such thing as a common cold. Many different kinds of viruses cause colds, and to date no one has come up with a cure-all. The good news: A number of researchers have had promising results giving mice a cold vaccine. The sobering news (from The Guardian):  "about 80% of drugs that make it into clinical trials because they worked in mice do not go on to work in humans." Scientists today identify seven virus families that cause t...

There were some post-game reports after the Bruins lost to the Blues in the shootout, that defenseman Torey Krug was held out of action late in the 3rd and through overtime, due to a lower-body injury.

Schizophrenia's surprising link to the gut

Green Tea & Rose Lemonade With Honey Hibiscus Syrup

Guest contribution by Paula Geerligs Right now, I am really into making honey-based herbal syrups for iced teas and lemonades. My current favorite is a green tea and rose lemonade with honey hibiscus syrup. My latest obsession began when I caught the common cold, which led me to reach for the elderberry rosehip syrup that was waiting for me in the fridge (I knew the cold was going around, that’s why I was prepared!) I could have taken it by the spoonful, but I thought it was a better idea ...
