    Sorry, but I looked it up. Crawford went to Eastern Michigan University, in Ypsilanti. I thought it might be a jumble of the town in Trinidad that he was born in.

    I don't know. In the past five or so years, it seems that the kicker assumes that the keeper will dive one way or another and just kicks it down the middle. I'm hoping more keepers just stand there...

    I think of the big 4 North American sports, the regular season means the least in the NHL. Top seeds fall with regularity, and 8 seeds get the finals.
