Deadspin has introduced a daily NHL closer to go along with the ones its does for baseball and the NBA. It's a proud day for the hockey blogosphere.
Hey, the first edition noted that the Blue Jackets forward Manny Malhotra played his 500th career NHL game. That might not mean a lot to you, or many people outside Columbus (or, aside from the Manny-Acs, many people inside Columbus), but Malhotra is the first Indo-Canadian player to do so. That's certainly noteworthy.
(Much obliged to Deadspin eds. Rick Chandler and Will Leitch for the link-up yesterday. It very well might have been a single-day record for traffic.)
