Game 7, All-Star Game, stolen stuff: Monday notes

There’ll be a Game 7 in the AHL this year: Oklahoma City got goals from Brad Hunt and Ryan Hamilton and 33 saves from Richard Bachman, surviving Sven Baertschi’s late goal to beat Utica 2-1. Game 7 is Wednesday in Utica.

David Andrews has called for the youth of the American League to convene in Syracuse, Jan. 31-Feb. 1, for the All-Star Game.

Colin McDonald had a glove stolen. Seriously. (H/T: correspondent Tim.) Arthur Staple tracked McDonald down for comment.

And I was very much ambivalent about the “Mad Men” finale Sunday night — depending on your interpretation of the ending, I may still be — but that ending, man, turned my whole feeling around. Honestly, I don’t care how you interpret it. (One person’s cynicism is another’s optimism, to me, in this case.) I loved that moment and the many ways you can think about it. Like David Chase with the end of “The Sopranos,” I almost don’t want to know what Matthew Weiner “meant” there. It’s more fun going back and forth through the interpretations.

Also, I kind of seriously want a Coke.
