Blues discover inadvertent rally cry in 'Roar Bacon'

Friday, 11.06.2015 / 4:08 PM / NHL Insider

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

HAZELWOOD, Mo. -- What started out as an iPhone autocorrect has turned into a rallying cry for the St. Louis Blues.

The St. Louis Cardinals have their "Rally Squirrel"; the Blues have "Roar Bacon."

It all began Wednesday when the Blues were at United Center playing the Chicago Blackhawks. They had rallied from trailing 5-2 in the second period to tie the game 5-5. The Blues' Instagram account wrote, "Well that was something. #OurBlues roar bacon with three second-period goals to tie the game 5-5."

Roar bacon was supposed to say roar back, but as has befallen many with their not-so-smart smart phones at times, autocorrect changed the original message. It's turned into a team phenomenon and become a rallying cry in light of the Blues' comeback 6-5 overtime victory.

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf will return to the lineup Friday against the Columbus Blue Jackets (10 p.m. ET; FS-O, PRIME, FS-SD) after missing four games to recover from a non-emergency appendectomy.

He had surgery Oct. 28 and has been on track with meeting the necessary benchmarks in order to return. He participated fully in the morning skate Friday, centering the top line with left wing Patrick Maroon and right wing Corey Perry.

Getzlaf said he has some discomfort but that it's nothing severe enough to limit him on the ice.

NEWARK, N.J. -- Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane, who Thursday learned he would not face charges for an August incident at his house in Hamburg, N.Y., met with the media Friday following the Blackhawks morning skate at Prudential Center.

Chicago plays the New Jersey Devils on Friday (7 p.m. ET; CSN-CH, MSG+).

"When you go through something like this you realize who your close friends are and your supporters, and the Blackhawks have been great to me," Kane said. "I appreciate all the support. It's meant a lot. The fans treat it like business as usual and I commend the coaches in keeping things as normal as possible.

"I'm happy I'm playing hockey and happy to be here [with the team]. Obviously to play another game [Friday] is a good feeling."

Ralph Krueger is unique to hockey.

How many people go from behind an NHL bench to chairman of soccer club Southampton FC of the Barclays Premier League?

Before the 56-year-old native of Steinbach, Manitoba was asked to run the elite soccer team, currently seventh in the 20-team premiership, he won a gold medal at the 2014 Sochi Olympics as an assistant coach with Canada. Previous to that he spent 19 seasons coaching in Austria and Switzerland, and three seasons with the Edmonton Oilers, including the 2012-13 season as coach.

Fantasy Friday: 10 interesting fantasy stats

Matt Cubeta - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

Fantasy hockey is all about numbers and statistics. Whether it's the generic goals, assists and points or the new advanced metrics, statistics are the bread and butter.

So in the latest edition of Fantasy Friday, I'm going to look at 10 of the most interesting or strange statistics in the NHL right now and how they relate to fantasy hockey.

1. Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek has 50 shots on goal (SOG) and no goals to show for it. That's the most shots of any player without a goal this season. Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown is second, with 48 shots and no goals. Voracek, who has had three straight 20-goal seasons and had 81 points last season, continues to play alongside Claude Giroux and it's only a matter of time before he starts scoring again. Now is probably your last chance to buy low on him. Brown, owned in 12 percent of Yahoo leagues, has been playing mostly with Anze Kopitar of late, but he hasn't been a useful fantasy player for the past two seasons (unless you're in a hits league). I would leave Brown on waivers.
