Former Olympian Jennifer Botterill calls out hockey culture; Kraken mascot controversy reaches boiling point; top teams facing goalie issues

Jennifer Botterill, a smart woman, completely outsmarted two hockey men, Jamal Mayers and Sam Cosentino, during a break in Sportsnet’s coverage. Paul Bissonnette and Seattle Kraken mascot “Buoy” became entangled in a brawl on the NHL on TNT set. The NHL is enjoying an increase in scoring and the crackdown on goalie equipment has led to lower save percentages. The Detroit Red Wings secured a 4-3 shootout victory over the Los Angeles Kings while the Winnipeg Jets overcame the San Jose Sharks 2-1. The Florida Panthers defeated the Vegas Golden Knights 4-1 and the Seattle Kraken beat the Ottawa Senators 4-1.
