Tarik takes a look at Jeff Schultz's "new weapon" (insert dirty joke):
Schultz's scoring surge has come as a surprise, even to him. He never has been considered an offensive dynamo. In fact, his half slap shot isn't very hard -- but it's accurate, and he gets it off in a hurry. Schultz's five goals have come on just 13 shots. His .385 shooting percentage is tied for fifth in the league.Corey's got his weekly NHL Report, and the Q&A this week is with Tom Poti:
"It's been effective for me," Schultz said. "The last four goals I've scored have all been half slap shots."
Q: Biggest phobia?Fair enough, dude.
A: Probably getting old - I don't want to get old

Chris Simon will be suspended 30 games for stomping on the back of Jarkko Ruutu's leg. According to TSN, Simon will appeal but since this is his eighth NHL suspension, I'm not exactly sure what kind of case he thinks he has (he has been suspended for using racial slurs, kneeing, cross checking across the throat, and of course stick swinging, among others).
