Zdeno Chara Drops Cedric Paquette With One Punch

I went to go look up Cedric Paquette's height and weight, figuring a "Cedric Paquette is tiny. Zdeno Chara is 6'9", 255 pounds. The result when they fought was predictable." lede would be pretty good. Except I learned from Hockey Reference that Cedric Paquette is actually 6'1", 198 pounds: Zdeno Chara is just that… » 1/13/15 9:50pm 1/13/15 9:50pm

Former NHL Ref: Jack Edwards "Has No Credibility"

Notorious Bruins homer Jack Edwards was in rare form on Saturday night. If you missed it, the NESN broadcaster lost his shit after the puck hit the netting above the glass, play continued, and about 90 seconds later, the Blue Jackets scored. Edwards starts reaching core instability around the two-minute mark of the… » 12/29/14 2:34pm 12/29/14 2:34pm

Just Give Us The Habs And Bruins Every Year, Please

Consider me officially on-board with the NHL's new playoff format. Formerly, the second round was re-seeded based on regular season record, which may have been fairer, but paid no mind to familiarity or its cousin contempt. The new bracket format is designed to match up divisional rivals, and after just one… » 5/15/14 9:17am 5/15/14 9:17am

Bruins Unimpressed By Carey Price's 48-Save Night

Normally, if you allow Boston to score three goals, you're not going to win. They feature the single best defensive forward, blueliner, and netminder in the league, with everyone else taking their cues from a style designed to strangle and frustrate. That style worked just as it was supposed to last night, the Bruins… » 5/02/14 9:17am 5/02/14 9:17am
