A player doesn't typically score a goal without an assist or two from his teammates. And those goals wouldn't matter much if their goaltender didn't make timely saves for the team.
But on Saturday morning, Blues forward B.J. Crombeen and goaltender Ty Conklin learned a different sort of teammwork...one that involves two people balancing and pedaling together to ride a tandem bicycle.
He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
