Fans interested in seeing Maria are invited to show up at the NHL Store on the corner of 47th St. and 6th Ave in Manhattan, New York for her appearance. They are also encouraged to bring signs.

A Look At Gary Green

from John Gregory of WashingtonCapitals.com,

For many young hockey players, an assignment to the bottom of the minors could be seen as a career death sentence. For Gary Green, it was just the beginning of a long and successful career in hockey – though not the way Green likely envisioned.

The former Capitals head coach went from being “the 17th man on a 17-man roster” in the minors to making NHL history when, at age 26, he was named the bench boss for the Caps – the youngest in NHL history.

Green grew up in Tillsonburg, Ontario where he was friends and played hockey with future NHL defenseman, coach and league executive Colin Campbell. But while Campbell’s path to success was as a player, Green took a decidedly different path.

Hockey Fans Can Be Scary

Adam Proteau talks to Carrie Milbank of The Hockey Show and asks what it was like starting her new job.

“Honestly, I was so scared at first,” said Milbank, who has been working in broadcasting since 2003. “I really wanted The Hockey Show job, and when I got it, I was like, ‘uh-oh, what am I going to do?’ Because not only was I scared of the players, I was scared of the fans, because they’re so intense.

“So I bought the book Hockey For Dummies. I bought The Smart Girl’s Guide To Sports to help me prepare. But talking to the guys and being around the game really helps you get to know what hockey’s all about.
