Hangin' with Stanley, Part One

What we know now after Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals:

1. Apparently the art of the hip check is not as completely lost as, say, the continent of Atlantis or Mel Gibson's career. See here.

2. For one night, at least, Roberto Luongo was abducted by aliens and replaced with a Pod Goalie who didn't occasionally handle the puck like it was a live grenade or a vial of the superflu that Stephen King used to kill off civilization in "The Stand."

3. Missing: Two power plays. If found, return to Boston, Mass., USA, and Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

That is all.
