We opened today’s podcast by addressing the very serious issue that was Pizzo not telling us it was his birthday on Wednesday. The jerk (happy b’day Robert!).

We got to a fewww other topics as well, including:

* Ilya Kovalchuk sneaking up to sixth in NHL scoring

* Mike Green jamming his elbow into the skull of Brett Connolly

* The red line debate is back

* Ken Holland is going to push for a second, 3-on-3 overtime period

* Columbus took a shot at Jeff Carter with a certain promo

* Beerability with Derek Snider!

* And last, regarding Crosby – if you could eliminate injuries from one NHLers career ever, who would you pick?
