Thursday morning in brief... 

It's a full mornin' o' news here in the nation's capital:

Canada and the U.S. squared off last night in the Ottawa leg of a home-and-home. As the U.S. did in the opener in Columbus, the home team pulled off a 3-1 win.

Bruce Garrioch and Chris Stevenson have it covered. Don from All Things Canadian was also there to witness it first-hand and from close range.

I have higher altitude tickets for Saturday's game against Slovakia. Looking forward to it, though it'll be weird to be cheering against Chara and Hossa.


The Lynx have extended their agreement with the Baltimore Orioles for another two years.


The Senators have hired Islander (the island in question being Prince Edward, of course) Dave Cameron to coach the Binghamton Senators AHL affiliate. Cameron was most recently coach of the St. Mike's Majors, but also once did fine work with the Summerside Capitals of the Maritime Junior Hockey League.
