Blackhawks "Green Game" promotes wind energy

On Monday, fans of the Chicago Blackhawks cheered as the team skated passed the Nashville Predators in a gritty 3-2 shootout win during the Blackhawks’ annual environmentally-friendly “Go-Green” game.

Constellation, the official energy provider for United Center and sponsor of the team’s green games, purchased Green-e Energy Certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) to match the electricity use on game day. RECs represent the environmental benefit of electricity generated by wind and therefore avoid emissions associated with fossil fueled generation.

The RECs for the Blackhawks game are expected to avoid 63 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions, roughly the equivalent of burning 146 barrels of oil.

Read on, and learn how you can switch to 100 percent renewable energy for your home.

Remembering 'Life as a Scout'

In November, 2011, had an opportunity to join NHL Central Scouting's Chris Edwards on a trip through Western Canada not only to view a few of the top prospects eligible for the 2012 Draft but gain exclusive access to "Life as a Scout."

"We're getting paid to watch hockey. Does it get any better?" Edwards told

In a span of 72 hours, and beginning in Regina, Sask., accompanied Edwards to gain an exclusive first-hand look at the process of scouting and what it entails.

Edwards will be one of several full-time scouts attending the final scouting meetings this weekend in Toronto, offering his assessment of those players he has witnessed over the course of the 2012-13 season.

The 42-year-old veteran scout started as a hockey official in the Canadian Tier 2 leagues before moving on to the Ontario Hockey League. His experience eventually landed him a job in the officiating department for the NHL 22 years ago. There, he began shooting videos of prospects and amateur referees before having a sit-down with veteran officials John D'Amico and Wally Harris, using the video as a training tool.

VAN @ SJS - 9:54 of the Second Period

At 9:54 of the second period in the Canucks/Sharks game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that the puck deflected off San Jose forward Logan Couture's skate and into the net. According to Rule 49.2 "A puck that deflects into the net off an attacking player's skate who does not use a distinct kicking motion is a legitimate goal." Good Goal San Jose.

Quote of the Day

We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
