The story: Devils top Flyers 4-3 in shootout (nhl.com 11-3-11)
The mistakes: “Parise said he and Kovalchuk have tried to make it as easy as possible in Henrique.”
“He’s a good player,” Parise aid.
The Copy Vigilante says: I think a hockey puck must have hit the editor who worked on this story in the head not once but twice! There are two mistakes two sentences in a row. With the first sentence the “in” should be a “for”. And below that, Parise didn’t “aid” anybody, he said something.
Brodeur likely to miss Saturday’s game (nhl.com 10-14-11)
The mistake: “Brodeur Thursday’s game after the first period because of a right shoulder injury.”
