A native of St. Louis, MO, Laura has been living in Atlanta, GA since 1993. It was a hockey wasteland, and Laura - a Blues fan from age 8 - got by with newspaper clippings her family sent her about the Blues and a copy of NHL94. In 1999 the Thrashers came to town, and she attended the first game through their very last.
This, coupled with her love of the Blues, drug her into blogging feet first. Laura writes irreverent and occasionally insightful commentary on the St. Louis Blues (and formerly the Atlanta Thrashers) on her own blog, Thrashing the Blues. She contributed to Birdwatchers Anonymous, but more often than not can be found at her home away from home, St. Louis Game Time, where she's the site manager. She is also SB Nation St. Louis' hockey editor, following the Blues on their return to the playoffs.
Jeff is a resident of Long Island, NY and has been a Capitals fan for as long as he can remember. He’s seen many of the greats play in his own backyard at the Nassau Coliseum- Rod Langway, Calle Johansson, Dale Hunter, and Peter Bondra just to name a few. At the age of 20, he enlisted in the United States Army where he served as a combat medic and never stopped following the sport that was so important to him growing up. In 2009, Jeff moved back to Long Island and currently attends as many hockey games as possible.
Jeff is also a contributor for Capitals Outsider, which covers the offbeat side of the Washington Capitals organization and their fans. He also enjoys talking to other hockey fans from all over the world. When Jeff is not writing about or watching hockey, you can find him at the local bar with some friends cheering for his other favorite teams- the Mets and the Jets.
Brian grew up on Long Island an avid Ranger fan, and is currently a junior at SUNY Geneseo. Hockey has consumed most of his life, playing for 17 years before hanging up his skates, and now working at Geneseo as the radio voice of the Geneseo Ice Knights and the sports director at WGSU.
Brian's hockey writing took off with fellow Puck Drunkard Mike Salerno on Tonight's Healthy Scratches and with Hockey Maven Stan Fischler. Brian is still a contributor to The Fischler Report.
Brian joins Puck Drunk Love continuing to work towards a career in journalism and happy to find yet another outlet to empty his mind of NHL banter and analysis, while sparing his roommates from endless hockey droning.
Also, if he succeeds here, no one will remember that his fantasy team finished in last place... again.
Lawrence has lived a tortured life as a hockey fan. He grew up in Edmonton, but by the time he realized what hockey was all about, the Oilers were well into their Jason Bonsignore era and the team was impossible to watch. But then Todd Machant and the playoff rivalry with the Dallas Stars happened, and a lifelong fan was born.
He now calls Toronto home, but he still bleeds copper and blue for the kids tearing it up in Edmonton. Lawrence writes about all things hockey, and tries to keep his love for the Oil separate from his words. But when they do make their triumphant return the Finals, he may be hard pressed to remain impartial.
