Nikolay Zherdev, most recently of the Flyers, is in a spot of trouble today back in Russia. According to a report from a Russian newspaper, first brought to our attention by Broad Street Hockey and Crossing Broad, Zherdev was out to breakfast with his wife and friends yesterday when things turned ugly.
Sabres shit-stirrer Patrick Kaleta is public enemy no. 1 in Philadelphia these days, after drawing Mike Richards into taking an elbowing major. And, of course, this one, where he might have unlocked the door to the bench so Nik Zherdev could be pushed through and taken out of the play.
