We put a lot of content on this blog each day, and we understand
it can be a bit tough to keep track of everything. So at the end of the
day we’ll put up a nightly recap of all of that day’s news. Presenting
the
Pro Hockey Talk Nightcap:

Ryane
Clow says he didn’t want to fight Morrow
- Clowe eventually fought
Barch after he took out Stephane Robidas.

Bruins
seeking payback could be nightmare for NHL
– Turns out, we didn’t
have anything to worry about.

Senators
need help to miss the playoffs
– They may not need much, but some
teams behind them have to start winning.

Tortorella
and Drury disagree on Rangers’ maturity
- Chris Drury looked to be
onto something.

Three
Bruins questionable with the flu
– You know, that “post-St.
Patrick’s Day bug that’s going around” flu.

Bruins
should make Pens pay
– legally – Once again, we really didn’t have
anything to worry about.

Seabrook’s
injury continues awful week for Chicago
– It’s not just the
goaltending that’s an issue for Chicago; they’re once great defense has
started to fall to pieces.

Does
the West have a ‘true’ favorite?
– San Jose and Chicago are far
from dominant late in the season. Is it Phoenix? It can’t be, can it?

Are
the Ducks completely delusional?
– James Wisiewski and Randy
Carlisle are not from this planet. I’m convinced of it.

Nicklas
Lidstrom: Still the one
- The reports of Nicklas Lidstrom’s hockey
death are completely false

Flyers’
goalie curse strikes again: Leighton out 8-10 weeks
- I called it.
There’s no way a high ankle sprain is just a day-to-day injury for a
goaltender.

NHL
hands Wisniewski an 8-game suspension
– Was it enough? I think so.

Matt
Cooke gets in a fight right away
– Cooke ‘paid’ for his
transgressions immediately, dropping the gloves and then getting pounded
by Shawn Thornton.

Cooke
gets a penalty for tripping
– This was about the most interesting
thing that happened in the game.

Quick
hits: Could 3D coverage give us Hockey-tar?
- The NHL in 3-D? Yes,
please.

Miracle?
Japan beats Canada in sledge hockey 
- I challenge anyone not to
watch a sledge hockey game and not be entertained.

Pens
win tepid bout with Boston 3-0
- About as anticlimactic as you can
get.

What
has happened to the ‘hockey code’ in the NHL?
– I am appalled at
the lack of respect that is being shown on a nightly basis around the
NHL.

Paul
Kariya scores his 400th career goal
- Congratulations to the future
Hall of Famer.
