Here are your Puck Headlines: a glorious collection of news and views collected from the greatest blogosphere in sports and the few, the proud, the mainstream hockey media.

• Ryan Miller’s new Blues mask has a big guitar on it, because of the blues, you know? It’s fine, but he missed a real opportunity to rep that classic image of Robert Johnson with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth. [St. Louis Blues]

• Alex Killorn feels pretty terrible about the hit that sent Paul Ranger to the hospital. He reached out as soon as he could. There will be no supplemental discipline for Killorn from the NHL. [Tampa Bay Times]

• Zach Parise figures some Devils fans will boo him when he returns to New Jersey. Razor-sharp, that guy. [Star-Ledger]

• Rick Nash on his return to Columbus: “How many games did I play for Columbus, 680? I was the face of the franchise, the first overall pick (in 2002), the captain. I’d be lying to myself if I said it would be like any other game. It’s definitely going to be a special night.” [Blue Jackets Xtra]

• A handy guide to percentages in hockey. [Grantland]

• Speaking of the percentages, they’ve turned around for Claude Giroux in a big way. Or maybe he’s just playing angry since his Olympic snub. Either way, he’s making a Hart case. [CSN Philly]

I think he is probably the best teammate I’ve ever had — the ability to learn from him, see how hard he works, how good he is still at 36 years-old…that’s pretty impressive. I try to just watch and study him a lot. [The Hockey Writers]

• For the numbers crowd: How a player’s shot attempt differential changes with age. [SB Nation]

• I’m concerned hockey fans might win this bracket. [Deadspin]

• A guide to the net logos and patches you’ll be seeing in the NHL next season. [Icethetics]

• It’s OHL playoff time. Here are 5 storylines to watch. [Buzzing the Net]

• Finally, here’s the best hockey commercial in the history of time, as a bunch of animated sandwich ingredients on skates check one another and turn into a delicious lunch on skates. You will feel like you’re on drugs.
