Why the Ocean Matters in a Rapidly Warming World
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Every day, more and more articles land in my inbox that describe strange occurrences happening in the ocean--huge "blobs" of warm water, "dead zones" without oxygen, wild fluctuation of currents. Many of these events have no precedent in recorded history, and they cannot be explained by the rules of the ocean system as we know them. Taken together, they paint a picture of our ocean under rapid change and increasing stress. The ocean is the planet's most important climate regulator, and it is starting to respond to the growing amount of carbon emissions in the atmosphere in ways that are extremely difficult to predict and even more challenging to manage. These changes will impact all our lives, from the communities that depend on the ocean for food and commerce to entire national economies. We are already experiencing these changes. Fishermen along the eastern seaboard are seeing their catch move to colder waters; oyster growers in the Pacific Northwest nearly declared bankruptcy ...

Scott Darling key to the Chicago Blackhawks
isports web - almost 2 years
Through the first three games of the postseason, the Chicago Blackhawks’ performance has been fairly inconsistent. However, the tides started to turn in Game 3 with the Blackhawks looking very dominant in their 4-2 win over the Nashville Predators. Game 3 was the first professional playoff start by goaltender Scott Darling who looked very good, only allowing 2 goals on 37 shots in the game. This performance will bring about a bit of a dilemma for the Blackhawks since Corey Crawford has struggled through the first two games. Can the Blackhawks win a Stanley Cup with Scott Darling as the starting goaltender? On the other hand, can the Blackhawks afford not to give him the chance to prove himself? It is always tough to judge whether a goalie could be a legitimate starter or whether he is just playing the best hockey of his life when there is such a small sample size. Goaltender Scott Darling appeared in relief in Game 1 of the series, stopping all 42 shots he faced in a double overtime ...

Columbus, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Artem Anisimov scored the game-winning goal in overtime as the Columbus Blue Jackets scored three unanswered goals to top the Philadelphia Flyers 4-3 on Friday. Columbus entered the game 0-20-0 when trailing after two periods, and it was the last team in the NHL to earn a point in that situation. Brandon Dubinsky had a goal and an assist and Jared Boll and Cam Atkinson also tallied goals for the Blue Jackets. Curtis McElhinney made 22 saves to help Columbus win for the third time in four games. Despite the loss, the Flyers extended their point streak to eight games, in large part due to Ray Emery's 29 saves. Wayne Simmonds scored two goals and added an assist on Sean Couturier's marker.

Ray Emery stopped 40 shots for Philadelphia. Philly scored all three of its goals in the second period. Matt Read lit the lamp twice and Wayne Simmonds added career goal No. 99.

Flyers vs Islanders Recap: Messy one fluctuates in Flyers favor
Broad St Hockey - about 3 years
The Flyers managed to battle back (again) and win a yo-yo game. Yay! Slow starts don't mean anything, apparently. For the ninth time this season, the Flyers have come from behind and won, tying a franchise record. I don't know why, but they somehow manage to get things done. It's infuriating at times, and it's blatantly un-fun others, but hell if it isn't full of drama. This game started off as a majority of previous games have: the other team scored first. John Tavares was left pretty much wide open in front of the net, so when Vanek dished it to him, the Islanders emerged with an easy lead. Not long after, the Flyers were awarded with a power play that ended up doing more damage than good. Cal Clutterbuck (yeah, that Cal Clutterbuck) netted a shorty and again, the Flyers had their work cut out for them. Andrej Meszaros got the Flyers on the board with a fluky one, but then closed out the first with an absolute beauty. The second period was a seesaw: the Flyers took ...

  • 2010
    Age 27
    In November 2010, TSN visited Emery during an on-ice workout and were surprised to see him get down into the butterfly position and play for the first time since surgery.
    More Details Hide Details Emery stated that he did not "care if could walk in seven years," and he "just wanted to play." To the surprise of his doctors and trainers, Emery has been doing better than expected.
    In March 2010, Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren announced that Emery would be out for remainder of the season due to the diagnosis and that a bone graft would be done to alleviate his hip issues.
    More Details Hide Details Doctors were able to catch the disease early on before it spread, unlike the case of baseball and American football player Bo Jackson. As a result, in April, doctors announced an extremely successful surgery. Jackson spoke out about Emery, speculating that they were the only two athletes to come back after the disease. Jackson added, "I take my hat off him. I want him to know I am in his corner. It's a lot of hard work. To come back and play, it takes a very, very special and driven person. He's got a different makeup to want to do all the little things he needs to compete on a professional level." Unlike Jackson, who required numerous hip replacements, Emery had the benefit of advancements in modern medicine, undergoing a very specialized and complex procedure that involved removing 13 centimetres from his right fibula, and then grafting it to the femur to re-introduce a proper blood supply to the area. Holmgren said that while the surgery went better than expected, he did not know exactly how long Emery's recovery would take.
  • 2009
    Age 26
    On June 10, 2009, the Philadelphia Flyers announced that they had agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth $1.5 million with Emery.
    More Details Hide Details After a successful training camp, he marked his return to the NHL with a 2–0 shutout victory against the Carolina Hurricanes in the first game of the season. In his second regular season game with the Flyers, against the New Jersey Devils, he stopped 24 of 26 shots in a 5–2 victory.

Originally expected to miss about six weeks, the prognosis changed when it was discovered that he had avascular necrosis.
  • 2008
    Age 25
    Emery signed a one-year, $2 million contract with Atlant Moscow Oblast of the newly formed Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) on July 9, 2008.
    More Details Hide Details As a foreign goaltender, Emery was only allowed to play in 65% of his team's 56 regular season games due to rules that encourage the development of Russian goaltenders. He split duties for the season with former Colorado Avalanche goaltender Vitaly Kolesnik and completed the season as a top goaltender in the KHL with a .926 save percentage & 1.86 GAA.
    On June 20, 2008, Emery was waived by the Senators, and cleared them three days later; as a result, he became a free agent.

    More Details Hide Details
  • 2007
    Age 24
    By the pre-season of the 2007–08 campaign, Emery was injured for a lengthy time due to a wrist injury that limited him to just 40 minutes of the pre-season and forced him to miss several games early in the Senators' season.
    More Details Hide Details
    Prior to the 2007 playoffs, Emery and the Senators won 5–2 against Montreal on March 30, 2007, which was his 100th NHL game.
    More Details Hide Details Emery's strong play in the season continued in the playoffs, as the Senators defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins, New Jersey Devils and Buffalo Sabres each in five-game series en route to their first Stanley Cup Final appearance since the team returned to the NHL in 1992, where the Senators ultimately lost to the Anaheim Ducks in five games. He became a restricted free agent after the end of the season and filed for salary arbitration, later agreeing to a three-year deal with the Senators worth $9.5 million before the hearings were held.
    On February 10, 2007, Emery was suspended three games from the NHL for striking Montreal Canadiens forward Maxim Lapierre with his stick on his face after Lapierre crashed into Emery's net.
    More Details Hide Details Twelve days later, after his suspension had ended, Emery was involved in a mêlée between the Senators and the Buffalo Sabres. He and Sabres goaltender Martin Biron left their creases to fight each other. After the first fight was finished, Sabres' enforcer Andrew Peters grabbed Emery and a second fight ensued. Both goaltenders received game misconducts, and Emery had the rare feat (for a goaltender) of receiving two five-minute majors for fighting in the same incident. In total, Emery received 22 penalty minutes (two five-minute majors for fighting, a two-minute minor for leaving the crease and the 10-minute game misconduct) for this altercation. After the altercation, fans and media have dubbed him "Sugar Ray" in reference to retired boxer Sugar Ray Robinson and Emery's reputation as a fighter. Then-teammate Brian McGrattan opined that if Emery were a position player and not a goalie, he would likely rank among the top five fighters in the NHL.
  • 2006
    Age 23
    Emery would be the starting goaltender for the rest of the season, leading the Senators to the second round of the 2006 Stanley Cup playoffs.
    More Details Hide Details After the 2005–06 season, the Senators opted not to bring back Hašek, instead acquiring Martin Gerber to compete with Emery for the starter position. Gerber was the starter at the beginning of the season, but due to his poor play, Emery replaced him in mid-November.
    When Hašek injured his groin during the 2006 Winter Olympics, Emery became the team's de facto starter, with Mike Morrison, claimed off of waivers from the Edmonton Oilers, as Emery's backup.

  • 2005
    Age 22
    At the beginning of the 2005–06 season, Emery had won nine-straight games during the regular season as the back-up to Dominik Hašek.
    More Details Hide Details
    Emery began his NHL career in 2005–06 by setting a record for wins to start a career, winning his first 9 games, moving ahead of Bob Froese, who started the 1982–83 season with eight wins while playing for the Philadelphia Flyers.

Once for bumping a referee which suspended him for three games. The other incident was an altercation with Denis Hamel of the Rochester Americans when Hamel admittedly uttered a racial slur.
