Is your (hockey) tumblr also being flooded by more bad news about the orange cheeto in the Oval Office? Are you also a disappointed hockey fan, pissed off with the NHL? Or worse - are you a Pens fan and cried yourself to sleep last night, because you hate that your own team did wrong?
Well, don’t despair, for I have a remedy post of fluff for you! Filled with soft boys, epic hockey bromances, Instagram chirping, puppies and the smile of Gabriel Landeskog. (Not that it solves anything to close your eyes to stuff that is wrong in the world, but a bitch can only take so much!)
The benches in hockey dressing rooms are built so that your feet rest on the floor with your skates on which means that there are pictures of Large Professional Athletes with sock feet dangling off of the bench and I think that is a beautiful thing.

The best parts of Ovi being mic’d for the All Star Skills:
Brian Boyle clearly trying to diplomatically figure out if Ovi’s had a kid when Ovi brought out Jonas.
Ovi telling Jonas to “pass it to Sid!” and Crosby bemusedly passing it back.
Ovi giggling and telling Hank and Greenie that he’s nervous, and comparing it to a playoffs game.
PK telling Ovi everyone broke 100mph at the Nashville competition because they let them skate in on the red line, then asking if Trotz was a good coach, Ovi saying yes, then general mutual encouragement of each other.
Ovi reacting to his first shot, saying “Holts, I’m shaking!” and Holtby being utterly unimpressed.
PK giving Ovi the mock “what for?” gesture after he won.
Ovi responding to Tarik El-Bashir asking if he took his second shot to see if he could break 100: “Yeah, why not? And I did.”
