Daily Cupcakes- January 20th, 2012.

An article about Colorado Avalanche's Peter Mueller.

Peter Mueller was in the spotlight and at long last the glare didn't make his head hurt.

The Colorado Avalanche forward scored twice in a 4-3 overtime win over Florida on Wednesday night, his first goals since returning last week from concussion symptoms that have plagued him for nearly two years.

These days, Mueller wears bigger shoulder pads along with a custom-fitted helmet that loops around his ears to better cushion his head and neck. He also dons a tinted visor that cuts down on the reflection from the arena lights, which at one point really affected him.

Not as much anymore as he's starting to feel like himself again.



More disappointing news about Duncan Siemens- he was a healthy scratch.

Playing without captain Duncan Siemens, who was a healthy scratch after missing a morning pre-game meeting, the Blades' defence struggled to contain the powerful Wheat Kings forwards in the final period.


The Toronto Sun's newest editorial piece suggests making helmets during warm ups mandatory league-wide.

I was all prepared to say NHL players should be allowed to choose whether they wear a helmet during warmups.

They’re grown ups, so they should have some freedoms at the rink, even if going without such an important piece of protection seems foolish just so the fans can see their faces.

But one peek at the picture of Edmonton Oilers forward Taylor Hall after he was injured during the warmup in anticipation of his team’s game Tuesday against the Columbus Blue Jackets changed that immediately.
