Tim Thomas will take his tire-pumping efforts elsewhere. He's heading to Texas, which, let's be honest, is cosmically right. His newest old teammate took it poorly: »
OK, Panthers goalie Tim Thomas deserves some crap for falling over in the first place in front of Mike Green's breakaway, but man, he recovered for an excellent save. Green's also an enabler for not aiming anywhere at the roughly 80% of open net. »
The Boston Bruins will welcome the winner of the Chicago-L.A. series to the Stanley Cup Final because of their utter dismantling of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Their work has gotten some press, and the folks at Sherman Farm are rather astounded by the reaction. After Puck Daddy picked up the story earlier today, the farm's social… »

The Mavericks forward was involved in an early morning throwdown at a Dallas Denny's today.
