Danny Wright: Just to break the ice, because of our namesake we like to ask everyone who comes in – can you go BarDown?Clint Malarchuk: Yes I can… yes I can. Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 Dam .DW: Was goaltender the position you always wanted to play?CM: Yes. My dad was a goalie and so was my brother, whos seven years older. When we would go to the rink to watch my brother play, the seven year gap was like, yknow, thats big brother out there. It was definitely what I wanted to play. They kind of held me back out of goal until I could learn to skate, because they said that was important. So I played forward and defense when I was really young. I think I started playing goal when I was nine.DW: Is it true your farm is called ‘Canuck Ranch?CM: Yes, yes it is. A lot of people when they come in – we have a big sign that says Canuck Ranch – they dont know what a Canuck is. Its like a Yankee in the states, its just a slang term, and they go “oh we get it.” Its our slang for Yankee, yknow, Canadian.DW: Youve been known to be passionate about both hockey and horses - where did your love of horses begin?CM: Grande Prairie, Alberta. I had a cousin who married into a ranching family, just a huge family that had 500 head of cattle, diary, and pigs. Thats where I got the love of the horse.DW: If you could compare yourself to one athlete, past or present, in the way you prepared yourself and the work ethic you had, which athlete would you choose?CM: Ill say Willie de Wit. Hes from Grande Prairie! He was a silver medalist in the Olympics in boxing.DW: Probably the most violent incident hockey has ever seen, in 1989 during a game a skate blade slashed your carotid artery – is it fair to say Jim Pizzutelli, the Buffalo Sabres trainer, saved your life that day?CM: Yes, thats a fair statement. I think more because he was so calm. A lot of people are trained for trauma, but theres not preparation for trauma when its under the gun and youve got minutes between life and death. He was a Vietnam vet so hed seen some crap, so for him to be that calm probably saved my life. #502546465 / gettyimages.com DW: Theres an interview with you on YouTube a few weeks after the accident where youre saying how anxious you were to get back on the ice; do you regret returning to the NHL as fast as you did?CM: No, I think the longer you wait the harder it gets. I think your personality dictates that too. I know [Richard] Zednik took a lot longer than I did, but everybodys different. For me it was the right thing to do. My only regret is later on I found how much it affected me mentally, and counseling or some sort of therapy probably would have helped me. #85708975 / gettyimages.com DW: Youve obviously been through a lot in your life, how difficult was it to recount those certain moments, and relive them in a way, while writing the book?CM: It was awful. Going through it again… it was a very difficult project. Someone just asked me this morning if talking about it or reliving it again was hard, and I knew when I was finishing the book; the last day of editing I was talking to Dan Robson my writer, and I was in the barn and just started crying. I was just thanking god that everything was done. And now this part is actually fun. The book is done, what I said is in it and I cant change it. Actually talking about it is not nearly as tough, this is kind of fun now.DW: Do you think the NHL is doing enough to help players when in comes to the issue of mental health and mental illness?CM: I dont think its the NHL, I think its society in general that has to do more about mental health awareness. Bell is probably the biggest corporation doing the most with mental health. The program Lets Talk nationwide is extensive and high profile, with high profile people involved. Its really what we need. To me theyre [Bell] at the forefront leading what everybody else has to pick up on. The NHL, NFL, NBA and even including corporations worldwide need to pick up on this. The statistics are unbelievable on days lost in the workforce due to mental health reasons. If corporations looked at those numbers, theyd figure out they need to do something here. Its a win-win if we get going on this. Its no different than physical health, if youve got cancer or a medical problem where youre going to miss work you would tell your boss. If you have a mental health problem you dont go to your boss. But if the company saw those numbers they would say, “hey, if you have problems like that, just come to us, its totally confidential, and well get you some help” because lets face it business is about money. Having people out of work is probably losing companies money. If there can be preventative medicine, they would do it. #56673885 / gettyimages.com DW: It takes a lot of courage to write a book like ‘The Crazy Game, and I think its going to help a lot of people - is there any final words you want to give readers before they open the book?CM: The feedback that Ive had so far, I mean, the book is out in bookstores today, but the media has had advance copies and the feedback tells me its very open, honest and raw. Talk about BarDown, this is bare down. Be prepared. There are parts that youre going to read in the book and youre going to think I was probably a jerk. I was acting like one for sure, but that was part of the illness. I would just say be prepared for some real honest, and its a little bit raw. Nike Vapormax Dam Rea . Kelli Stack and Alex Carpenter also scored for the Americans, who avoided a repeat of Finlands upset at the Four Nations Cup in Lake Placid, N.Y., in November. Finnish goalie Noora Raty made 58 saves in that one, but the three-time Olympian could stop just 40 of 43 U. Nike Zoom Fly Herr . Webb birdied the 18th hole to take the outright lead, then watched as Choi, who shot a course-record 62 on Saturday to take a share of the third-round lead, pushed a 10-foot putt wide of the hole at 18 to miss the chance for a playoff.COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Toronto Maple Leafs found out less than an hour before the start of their game Friday night in Columbus that forward Joffrey Lupul would be out indefinitely after breaking his right hand in a fall at practice the day before.They didnt seem to miss him.Daniel Winnik and Phil Kessel each had a goal and two assists, and Jonathan Bernier made 28 saves to lead the Leafs past the injury-riddled Blue Jackets 4-1.It was kind of a surprise to everyone that it was actually broken, coach Randy Carlyle said.

It wasnt pretty, but it was effective.Nazem Kadri added a goal and an assist and David Clarkson also scored for the Maple Leafs, who are 3-0-1 on the road and 2-4-0 at home.Its fun to see back-to-back games with a great effort, Bernier said, referring also to his 4-0 shutout victory over Buffalo on Tuesday. Maybe the only thing we were missing a little bit is just the compete level — taking it a notch up. We had that in the last two.Kessel punched in a shot that went to video review before it was confirmed. Clarkson redirected a pass from Dion Phaneuf on the power play, and Kadri finished a 2-on-1 feed from Kessel in the third. Winnik scored his 50th NHL goal late in his 500th career game.If you wanted to write up how a 500th game is supposed to go, tonight is (it), Winnik said.After a 10-minute review, Kessel was awarded his goal in the first.He was at the left doorstep after shots by Winnik and Kadri were deflected by goalie Curtis McElhenny. Kessels shot off a rebound was deflected off the right skate of Columbus defenceman Fedor Tyutin, who had come in behind McElhenny. The review showed the puck briefly crossed the goal line before ricocheting out off Tyutins blade.A large contingent of Toronto fans in the crowd of 14,479 chanted Lets go, Leafs! several times during the game.Shortly after Columbus Jack Johnsoon — also playing his 500th game — went off for interference, Phaneufs drive from the point was redirected by Clarkson for his third of the season. Nike Air Max Plus Tn Dam. Clarkson had his stick straight out at waist height and deflected the puck down and past a helpless McElhenny.Kessel then carried the puck down the right wing early in the third, making a late feed behind the defenceman for a jam shot by Kadri.Its nice to get some puck luck and a couple of bounces here and there, Kadri said. Thats what happens when you play the right way and you stay with it.Cam Atkinson scored and Ryan Johansen had an assist to set a Columbus record with his 10-game point streak to start the season. It was the fourth loss in a row for the Blue Jackets.Bernier lost his shutout midway through the third period when he stopped Johansens drive from the right circle but lost track of the puck, which was underneath him. Atkinson chopped it into the net for his fifth goal.The Blue Jackets have been hurt by a scourge of injuries. They were without eight players, including forwards Nathan Horton (back), Boone Jenner (broken hand), Brandon Dubinsky (abdominal surgery), Matt Calvert (upper body), Artem Anisimov (concussion), Mark Letestu (groin), goalie Sergei Bobrovsky (broken finger) and top offensive defenceman James Wisniewski (broken finger).For guys being called up and the second, third and fourth lines being jumped around a little bit, its tough for them, Johansen said. Its not easy adjusting to different players all the time. But weve got to find a way to make it work.NOTES: Blue Jackets LW Nick Foligno, just back from missing one game after injuring his neck in a collision with an official, celebrated his 27th birthday. ...
