Like father, like son

Meet Jonathan Roy. He's the son of NHL great Patrick Roy. He plays goaltender for the Quebec Remparts, a junior team that is owned and coached by his father.
Well it turns out the Remparts were playing their rivals last night, the Chicoutimi Sagueneens. And as is usually the case with rivals, things got pretty nasty:
According to reports, Pappa Roy may have told his offspring to give that beat-down to the Chicoutimi goalkeeper.
Where ever could the younger Roy have picked something like this up? Hmmm...
THE WALLS COME TUMBLING DOWN
Old St. Francis Central Hospital had a little remodeling done yesterday:
EMPTY NETTER ASSISTS
-Dave Molinari's recap from last night's game.
-Sidney Crosby could return tomorrow night.
-Turns out the reason Connor James didn't get smashed or even dressed last night was because he was demoted to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
-According to an EN reader, James did get smashed during last night's Wilkes-Barre/Scranton game (sort of):
"During tonight's Wilkes-Barre/Scranton's 3-2 victory over top-of-the-table Providence, CJ really didn't get walloped to satisfy the "smashing" thing, but if I were to grade the hardest check to him, it would be by Adam McQuaid of Providence.
Again, I don't know if that continues the "smashing" thing, but there you go."
David from Wilkes-Barre
-EN Shutterbug Lisa Bohm sent us a bunch of quality pictures from yesterday's game as usual:
-Ryan Malone's short-handed goal.
-David Brown made 36 saves for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins who edged Providence, 3-2.
-If you want to see just about any fight of consequence (that's captured on video at least) involving the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, check this out.
-B.J. Radovich recorded two assists for the Wheeling Nailers in a 4-3 loss to Cincinnati.
-Rangers forward Scott Gomez is dealing with some bruised ribs.
-Darcy Tucker and Kyle Wellwood each had a goal and an assist for the Maple Leafs who beat the Senators 5-4 in the Battle of Ontario.

-Habs coach Guy Carboneau thinks Kovalev deserves consideration for the Hart Trophy.
-Canadiens defenseman Mike Komisarek will miss three weeks due to a non-specified injury.
-Nathan Horton scored two goals and lifted the Panthers to a 4-2 win against the Lightning. Tomas Vokoun made 35 saves and recorded his 30th win of the season. He joined Roberto Luongo as the only Panthers goaltenders to win 30 games in a season.

-Rich Peverly and Alexander Radulov scored shootout goals and gave the Predators a 2-1 win against the Blackhawks. Dan Ellis made 37 saves in the win.
-Pardon us if this seems like we're turning this into a Tony Esposito blog, but more and more good stuff keeps surfacing from the ceremony the Blackhawks held for him last week:
-Jarome Iginla recorded his seventh career hat trick and led the Flames to a key 5-4 defeat of the rival Wild.
-The video is kind of cruddy, but check out this short-handed goal Flames defenseman Dion Phaneuf scored last night:
-Sam Gagner scored two goals for the Oilers in a crazy 7-5 win against the Avalanche.
-Here's something that occurred in Edmonton's win yesterday you don't see every day; Oilers forward Marty Reasoner scored one of us that didn't really go in the net:
