Here's another instance when knowing a player's pedigree, dumb luck and quick thinking added a pair of pucks from Buffalo's Drew Stafford to the collection.

Stafford, the Sabres No. 1 pick in 2004, played college hockey at the University of North Dakota. Hence, the official game puck, one of five UPS delivered only hours before.

The Sabres puck, from Hound Central 4.0's specialty bin, was intended for Buffalo's Toni Lydman. Once I saw the parallel horizontal stripes -- thick and thin -- on each puck, I called an audible.

Turned out pretty nice, didn't it?

I inadvertently killed a comment here. Sorry.

You make a good point, though. Maybe I'll try a different color, even a Sharpie, in the future.
