Crease and Desist

If his editing skills are as sharp as his goaltending skills, Parker Milner’s services could come in handy when editing this Sports Illustrated caption. Perhaps Milner could turn aside a couple of words that don’t belong.

Alas, Boston College’s netminder is busy stopping shots, so I’ll take a shot at it.

“In the” is in the way on the left wing. Like a hockey player at a ramshackle rink, a random word often skates on thin ice. But two words?

Let’s leave ‘em both out in the cold. That loss would be a net gain.
