TUESDAY’S RESULT
Home Team in Caps
Pittsburgh 5, TAMPA BAY 2 – series tied 3-3


CROSBY SCORES (ANOTHER) WINNING GOAL AS PENGUINS FORCE GAME 7
The Penguins built a three-goal lead through two periods – powered by 1-1—2 from captain Sidney Crosby – and held off a Lightning rally in the final frame to extend the Eastern Conference Final to a seventh and deciding game.

* Crosby scored his third game-winning goal of the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs, all of which have come in the Conference Finals. His nine career playoff game-winning goals are tied for the third-most in franchise history, behind Jaromir Jagr (14) and Mario Lemieux (11).

* Elias notes that Crosby became the second Penguins player to score three game-winning goals in one playoff series, joining Kevin Stevens (3 GWG in 1991 DF vs. WSH: 4-1 W). Only one player in NHL history has scored four such goals in a single series: Mike Bossy of the Islanders in the 1983 Conference Finals vs. BOS (4-2 W).

* Crosby, who shares second on the Penguins with 6-9—15 this postseason (17 GP), scored his 49th career playoff goal to move into a tie for fifth place among active players(w/ Patrick Kane). He now has 4-8—12 in 14 career games with the team facing elimination.

* Phil Kessel scored his ninth goal of the postseason – the most in a single playoff year by a Penguins player since 2009, when Crosby (15) and Evgeni Malkin (14) helped Pittsburgh win the Stanley Cup.

GAME 7: DID YOU KNOW?
Thursday’s contest at CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh (8:00 p.m. ET on NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports) will be the fifth Game 7 of the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs. This marks the second straight year that the Eastern Conference Final will require a seventh and deciding game – the Lightning defeated the Rangers 2-0 to reach the Stanley Cup Final in 2015.

* The Penguins and Lightning will contest a Game 7 for the second time in as many playoff meetings. In the seventh game of the 2011 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals,Dwayne Roloson made 36 saves and Sean Bergenheim scored the lone goal in Tampa Bay’s 1-0 victory at PIT.

* The Lightning hold an all-time record of 5-1 in Game 7s, including a pair of shutout victories in 2015 en route to the Stanley Cup Final. Tampa Bay has surrendered just three goals in their six Game 7 appearances.

* The Penguins will skate in their sixth Game 7 in the past eight playoff seasons. They are 7-7 all-time in such contests (2-7 at home) with their last victory coming in the 2009 Stanley Cup Final at DET.

* Tampa Bay defenseman Anton Stralman is undefeated in Game 7s (7-0), as is forwardBrian Boyle (6-0) and defenseman Matt Carle (5-0).

MURRAY JOINS ELITE COMPANY
Matt Murray made 28 saves, including 17 in the third period, to help the Penguins stave off elimination for the first time this postseason.

* Murray improved to 10-4 in 14 career playoff games, compared to a 9-2-0 mark in his regular-season career (13 GP). Via Elias, he is the third goaltender in the expansion era (since 1967-68) to reach double digits in postseason wins before hitting the mark in the regular-season, joining Montreal’s Ken Dryden (1971) and Calgary’s Mike Vernon(1986).

* Elias adds that Murray became the first rookie goaltender in franchise history to register a victory with the team facing elimination from the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The last rookie goaltender to do so for any team was Montreal’s Dustin Tokarski in Game 5 of the 2014 Conference Finals vs. NYR (7-4 W).

NHL ANNOUNCES DATES FOR STANLEY CUP FINAL
The NHL announced the schedule of dates for the 2016 Stanley Cup Final, which will begin on Monday, May 30. Additionally, Stanley Cup Media Day will be Sunday, May 29, in the host city for Game 1. All start times are 8 p.m. ET:

*if necessary

LOOSE PUCKS
The Penguins improved to 47-1 when leading after two periods this season (8-1 in playoffs), with their lone loss coming in Game 5 vs. TBL . . . Road teams have won each of the past four games and own an overall record of 42-41 this postseason after winning only 38 contests during the entire 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs (38-51) . . . Pittsburgh’s Kris Letang snapped a 12-game goal drought with his 17th career playoff goal, extending his franchise record among defensemen . . . Forward Brian Boyle scored both Lightning goals to record his first career multi-goal playoff game (99 GP). His five goals this postseason are a career high . . . The Bruins signed defenseman Kevan Miller and forward Seth Griffith to contract extensions . . .

Spectacular Spectacles: Some of the Newest Frames by Surreal Eyewear Spring 2016




Founded in 2002 and l​ocated in New York City’s West Village, ​Surreal Eyewear ​sets the standard in Manhattan for eyewear​ and truly goes beyond the pair of glasses. In Manhattan and beyond, Surreal Eyewear is in a class by itself in specializing as a​ consultant rather than a  retailer​, attracting a global clientele. 

“Surreal Eyewear is a museum of eyewear; i​t’s a tribute to eyewear design”, ​states Oleg Rabinovich, the store’s owner​ and creative director.​ ​World-renowned brands such as Kuboraum, Dzimtry Samal, FACE a FACE, Theo and Anne et Valentin compliment Surreal Eyewear’s recently expanded line of its own handmade frames and sunglasses. Surreal Eyewear prides itself in curating a sophisticated and vast array of new, vintage and custom eyewear brands ​sourced ​from all over the world.​ The fashion sense Surreal Eyewear epitomizes ensures a highly fashionable clientele that greatly anticipate new styles seasonally for their optical wardrobe.​ 

At Surreal Eyewear one does not pick out a pair of glasses​, rather one​ enter​s​ into a process ​that ensures ​walk​ing​ away impossibly chic​, convey​ing​ style, function and art.​ These opticians are the craftspeople and ​conduits into this process, selecting ​bespoke ​frames to fit an individual’s face and personality,​ and are​ never shy about refusing to sell frames that are deemed unsuitable. 

Surreal Eyewear are first and foremost opticians with lens fabrication​ with the best ​optics by Carl Zeiss​,​ done in-house with standards all can aspire to. For the truly demanding​ and appreciative of style nuances​, ideas can be developed into custom frames and lenses for a one-off production that transcends the mundane. 







These are the ones below that Peachy Deegan is wearing today:

MONDAY’S RESULT
Home Team in Caps
San Jose 6, ST. LOUIS 3 – SJS leads 3-2

PAVELSKI, SHARKS INCH CLOSER TO STANLEY CUP FINAL
The Sharks scored four unanswered goals – including the tying and winning tallies by captain Joe Pavelski (2-1—3) – to take a 3-2 series lead against the Blues and move within one win of clinching the franchise’s first trip to the Stanley Cup Final.

* Pavelski scored the tying and go-ahead goals in a span of 1:43 over the second and third periods to establish a franchise record with his League-leading fourth game-winning goal of the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

* Pavelski, who extended his point streak to six games (4-5—9), paces all players with 12 goals and shares the League lead with 21 points this postseason, tied with teammateLogan Couture (7-14—21) – extending single-postseason franchise records in both categories.

* Via Elias, Pavelski’s seven career three-point games in the postseason are the most in franchise history. Only three players have more such performances since the start of 2007 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Penguins teammates Evgeni Malkin (13) and Sidney Crosby (10) and Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg (8).

* Per Elias, when teams are tied 2-2 in a best-of-seven Stanley Cup Playoffs series, the winner of Game 5 holds an all-time series record of 192-53 (78.3%).

SHARKS CONTINUE RECORD-SETTING RUN
* The Sharks established and matched franchise records for overall wins (11) and road wins (5) in a single postseason, surpassing and tying marks set during their run to the 2004 Conference Finals.

* Martin Jones (18 SV), who has been the goaltender of record in all 11 victories, set a franchise record for wins in a single postseason, one more than Evgeni Nabokov had in 2004.

* Joe Thornton (0-3—3) and Logan Couture (0-1—1) each registered their 14th assist of the postseason (tied for the League lead) to match the Sharks record for the most in a playoff year. Thornton, who set that franchise record with 14 assists in 2011, also became the third active player to record 90 career playoff assists (also Jaromir Jagr: 123 andMarian Hossa: 97).

LOOSE PUCKS
Overall, road teams have won 41 of 82 games this postseason after winning only 38 contests during the entire 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs (38-51) . . . ICYMI: Blues forwardTroy Brouwer and Sharks forward Joel Ward (2-0—2) each batted the puck out of mid-air for goals . . . Brouwer scored his eighth goal of the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs, one more than he had in his first 78 career postseason games . . . Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic (1-1—2) scored his third career playoff goal (101 GP) . . .

For more information about Fresh Origins, visit their website at 







Before anyone rolls their eyes and thinks "Why on earth would I go out for just spaghetti?" you need to think again: Spaghetti Incident is one of the most impressive new venues to us this season, and it's been open since May 21, 2015.  Owned by native Italians Ettore Pardossi of Pisa, Sous Chef, Giovanni Gentile of Forli, Host (both of whom we met and are above) and Emanuele Attala, Executive Chef and native of Rimini, Spaghetti Incident puts the P in pasta.  
This is no ordinary spaghetti!
And since when are we interested in ordinary anything???
A special of the day under Arancini: Arancini al Pesto!
Basil Pesto Rice and Gorgonzola was a fresh, welcoming start.
Inside:
Four impressive salad selections greeted us on our inaugural visit to Spaghetti Incident.
We like it when restaurants put effort into salad!
The Mango and Avocado edition was glorious!
Arugula, Scallions, both white and black sesame seeds, and of course Mango were all fresh and fantastic.  All organic ingredients go into this salad and the produce is bought every day we were told.  Lemon Mango Juice and cayenne pepper composed the dressing, which we liked!  They listened and put it on the side.
How come everyone does not make salads this delicious and attractive?
We were equally impressed with Kill the Kale, another salad which you ought to try.
Spaghetti Incident earns high points for fun names; you know names are important to us.
Kale, steamed white cauliflower and local crispy shrimps breaded fresh every day excel together and make this their bestselling salad.  A lot of other restaurants could learn from their salad dressings which are fresh, hip and unyucky: Carrots Ginger Dressing impressed us here, also arriving appropriately on the side.
It's not news that the Italians put every other ethnicity to shame in cuisine (disclaimer: Peachy is not Italian: this is her honest experience) but it is news that there is a new restaurant you need to know about by authentic Italians that care a lot about doing a great job.  We especially liked the cleanliness levels we saw everywhere.  You could eat off the floor here!  How many times have you heard us say that?
You are going to cry when your plate is empty: it is that awesome.
This edition is the Salsiccia E Broccoli.
Dried pasta, super succulent sausage (from Ottomanelli!) sauteed in Pinot Grigio and broccoli rabe are a trio of goodness that is like an offensive scoring line in the Stanley Cup Playoffs that's going to have a hat trick in your stomach. (P.S. Rod Gilbert says he is picking the Pittsburgh Penguins for the Cup last week.)
Every component is fresh, high quality and a great teammate on the plate.
Here's their classic bestseller: Chitarra. 
You must try it!
Homemade Mozzarella fresh from the West Village, Basil and Fresh Chopped Tomato Sauce is simple yet extraordinary.  The gorgeous savory aroma will envelop your senses and you'll revel in gastronomic ecstasy.
Less is more and this is a winner.
It's difficult to say which of these was our favorite (kind of like the new Lotus shoes that just arrived) but if we had to pick we think we'd pick this one.
Meet Salmone and Asparagi!
The ultimate in spaghetti sophistication is steamed asparagus, capers, chopped fresh salmon and of course spaghetti dance in a creamy vodka sauce.  If this dish was on Dancing with the Stars tonight in the finale it would win the Mirror ball.
You want to order dessert and the Lemon Meringue Pie is the ultimate in light and luxurious and the raspberry sauce elevates the level of decadence to increase your happiness.
It's made on premises.
Yes, Spaghetti Incident is Terrific Takeout!
We look forward to seeing what they do next.

The GRAMMY Foundation was established in 1988 to cultivate the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contribution of recorded music to American culture. The Foundation accomplishes this mission through programs and activities that engage the music industry and cultural community as well as the general public. The Foundation works in partnership year-round with its founder, The Recording Academy, to bring national attention to important issues such as the value and impact of music and arts education and the urgency of preserving our rich cultural heritage. In recognition of the significant role of teachers in shaping their students' musical experiences, the GRAMMY Foundation and The Recording Academy partnered to present the first Music Educator AwardTM in 2014. Open to current U.S. music teachers in kindergarten through college, the fourth annual Music Educator Award recipient will be recognized during GRAMMY® Week 2017.
