A couple of weeks ago, we published a 100% not fabricated interview with Barry Brust (for the purposes of this piece, "not fabricrated" means absolutely contrived from the brain of BoL, so keep that in mind). It went over well. We were offered a glimpse into the darkest reaches of his soul, learned that he kills people in his spare time, likes Tim Hortons free wi-fi, and is generally just a swell dude. We may have intimated that he's a touch crazy with a penchant for spontaenous violence, but hey, none of us are perfect.
Further to that, things have been going extremely well for the pride of Swan River, Manitoba. He's coming off back to back shutouts over the Lake Erie Monsters, and has only let in 1 goal in 4 games over the course of the 2012-13 AHL campaign. Safe to say that this has made him a bit of a cult hero in Abbotsford and Calgary Flames circles, and Brusty is really flying high right now taking the whole thing in. Truly it has never been a better time to be Barry Brust, goaltender and entertainer, and he approached us here at FlamesNation for a follow up interview while he's riding this hot streak.
Reluctantly, I have agreed to do oblige him, for while I am a proud soldier in the Brussian Army (copyright 2012 bookofloob), last time we spoke, he did end up Superman diving me in the throat. I'm still using a respirator. But what Barry wants, Barry gets, because being the timid, little men we all are here at the Nation, we pretty much bent over and gave him what he wants.
Read on after the jump to catch the follow up with the legendary Barry Brust!

1. I can't believe how good Johnny Gaudreau is
I think by this point I've watched four or five of Boston College's nine games, and Johnny Gaudreau has been very good in all of them. (I know I talk about this kid a lot but there's a lockout. What do you want from me?)

It's a busy weekend ahead for basically all non-NHL levels of professional and amateur hockey. The World Junior selection camps loom on the horizon and we're getting down to the meat of the professional schedule, so a lot of players have things to prove.

The KHL returns from a 9-day break with 22 teams playing in 11 games. Joffrey Lupul makes his KHL debut with Avtomobilist, Malkin stacks the pads (what?), Ovechkin return much to the delight of Nicklas Backstrom, and more.

The Abbotsford Heat remained one of the hottest teams in the AHL yesterday by beating the Lake Erie Monsters 3-0. The score featured two empty net goals from Baertschi and Laing, but the home club was full value for the win nonetheless outshooting their opponents 32-18 through two periods (39-29 overall). Apparently the contest would have been a laugher if Abby had finished a few of their 10-bell chances prior to the third period.
