Daily Cupcakes: February 8th, 2011

Yeah, Cody, this is how I feel after watching the game too. Except I'm not missing teeth.(Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images)





Another game, another loss, another session of sitting in front of the computer angry trying to find some good clips for Cupcakes. It's becoming pretty Darn hard.

 

First one is about Phoenix, on Valentine's Day, to get more couples to attend the game, they are running a promotion (stick tap to Skater for this one!) :

To encourage couples to try hockey instead of quaint or romantic night out, the team and Ganem Jewelers will be giving out 3,000 cubic zirconia diamonds to women at the game. One of those rings will be a $5,000 real diamond. Ganem Jewelers has locations in Scottsdale and Ahwatukee.

 

More former teamates are talking about Peter Forsberg, this time it's Derek Morris' turn (actually this article has lots of quotes from other too!) .

"Pete may not be the dynamic player he was, but he's still a player who can change a game," he said. "His leadership in the room is great and he's got one of those attitudes that young guys really feed off of. He's a happy-go-lucky guy who's going to show the kids the right things.
 
"As good as he is, he works harder than anyone and that really rubs off on people. He's so competitive and wants to win so bad ... if he can stay healthy, it might not be a one-year thing. You have to love the game to keep trying this long."

Sadly Marc Savard is done for the season after the hit by Matt Hunwick, I'm sure Matt feels awful for it.

Savard described many of the same symptoms as Bergeron: The way he is sleepy all the time, and how things seem to move slower.

"Sometimes you just have situations where you just don't feel right," Savard said. "It's just an uncomfortable state. People see you on the outside and you just look normal. You don't have a cast on or anything like that. But it's tough on the inside."
