L.A. Kings superstar Jarret Stoll -- boyfriend of Erin Andrews -- was arrested in Vegas on suspicion on drug possession ... for allegedly bringing cocaine and ecstasy to a Vegas pool party.

 

According to local reports, 32-year-old Stoll was busted Friday at the Wet Republic pool party at the MGM Grand.

 

The real question is, was he also in possession of any probiotics?

Tampa Bay knocked out Montreal tonight. That makes it official....for the 21st consecutive season (not counting 2005, due to the lockout) a Canadian-based team will not hoist the Cup.

I've found that pretty fascinating over these last several years... no Canadian based team winning it. The Canucks came close. The Canadians have had some solid teams. Winnipeg is building something, Calgary had a strong, bounce back year... and the Leafs... well... whenever they decide to start caring again, there's no excuse for how poor they've been. This has to be the longest streak right?

Without even looking it up, I'd have to say it is easily the longest streak. Hell, I'll bet the Montreal Canadians by themselves never went 21 seasons without winning a Cup until now.

I believe the Canadians were the last Canadian team to win...beating the Caps.

They may have beat the Caps at some point in the playoffs, but it wasn't in the Cup Finals. Montreal beat the Kings to win it in 1993.

 

From the Pointless Back-Patting Dept: I was right above. Until now, the longest the Montreal Canadians (let alone any Canada-based team) had gone without a Stanley Cup win (since the founding of the NHL in 1917) was 12 years, from 1932-44.

 

And from the Useless Information Dept: The Stanley Cup has been in existence since 1893, and the Canadians did not win their first one until 1916 as members of the National Hockey Association (the team wasn't founded until 1909). But even if you want to go back that far, they're still only 2 seasons shy of the current drought.

This.

Canadian teams have had some near misses losing in the finals. Vancouver did it twice I think.

The Caps only Stanley cup appearance in history was losing to Det in 98.

Vancouver lost twice in a 7 game series, in 1994 (NYR) and 2011 (BOS). Calgary lost in 7 games to Tampa Bay in 2004.

Completely forgot about Calgary. They were carried there single handedly by Kiprusoff. Tampa knocked us out on the way there in 7 games I think.

Now that I think about it, I'd love to see how many times the Caps have been eliminated by the team to win it all.

You're right, I got my annoying dynastic franchises mixed up :P

 

Don't know how I could do that, considering, you know, the Caps and Canadians have been in the same conference since they went to directional divisions.

Just caught up on the Ducks/Blackhawks from last night... Wow. What a game.

 

A Duck's/Bolts SC would have a chance to be fairly epic, IMO.

Rags won another elimination game to set up a game 7 against the Bolts.

Just never doubted that would be the case Duff... as I'm sure you didn't either.

 

I'm sure they'll win game 7 behind another great Lundqvist performance (seems a long time ago, all of the sudden, since those back-to-back 6 goal games).

 

I never thought I'd dislike a team more than the Pens, Flyers or even Bruins... but these Rags are the most annoying of the bunch. Cannot stand them at all. Hell of a hockey team though.

I had like a drunk 20-minute talk with some random Rangers fan 2 weeks ago. Nice to know he's now suffering like I was.

Read this interesting stat over the weekend:  Only two teams in NHL history have ever lost Home Game 7's three years in a row and both were coached by Bruce Bourdreau.  Ouch.
