  1. Video: Marc Savard allegedly bites Dan Carcillo

    May 4, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    It’s obvious that things are getting a bit heated between the Flyers and Bruins, which is no surprise, and at the heart of it all is Dan Carcillo and Marc Savard. I know, it’s tough to think of Savard as a guy involved in all this, but before his concussion he wasn’t exactly the most…

  2. Miroslav Satan's redemption

    May 3, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    When the Boston Bruins signed Miroslav Satan to a contract right after New Year’s this season, it seemed like a desperate team picking up a washed up player. While that may have been a reasonable assumption, the 35-year-old devil pun generator resurrected his career and might just be the Bruins’ most dangerous forward right now.…

  4. Report: Marco Sturm will miss rest of playoffs

    May 1, 2010, 11:15 PM EDT

    The Boston Bruins are just asking themselves for “bruise” related pun headlines. This afternoon, they saw Marc Savard – a guy who missed two months with concussion issues – score a game-winning overtime goal. With the way their season is going, it almost makes sense that they are dealing with another injury problem. The team…

    Boston’s dramatic overtime win over Philadelphia was exciting, for sure.

    May 1, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Thanks to Joe Sullivan of the Bruins Blog, we have a transcript of Marc Savard’s post-game press conference. Just an instant before Savard’s big game-winning slapshot, I was remarking that we hadn’t seen much of the returning hero in the third period and especially not in overtime, when the energy of the game was incredibly…

    Apr 29, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    Another round, another set of darts. This time, we’re taking a look at Round 2 of the 2010 NHL Playoffs (also known as the Conference Semifinals, if you’re a stickler for details).

  9. Jaroslav Halak, Montreal shocks Washington in Game 7

    Apr 28, 2010, 10:30 PM EDT

    This is one of those games (and series) where you look for someone to blame. Was it as simple as “The Capitals couldn’t solve Jaroslav Halak?” Maybe you point to their “lack of experience” or question their intestinal fortitude? To be honest, I’m still wrapping my head around the fact that the world-beating Washington Capitals…

    Comments Off

    [Update] Some troublesome new developments in the Lapierre news, as it turns out it certainly isn’t good. Per the team, Ian Laperriere has a brain contusion and mild concussion. He’ll have a CT scan in a month and will be reevaluated then. Unless the Flyers make it to the Stanley Cup Finals, there’s more than…

    Apr 27, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    While I’m sure a potential Bruins and Flyers matchup in the East will be great fun, and the Red Wings taking on the Sharks yet again would be entertaining, it’s the semifinals series between Canucks and Blackhawks I’m looking forward to the most. These are two teams that battled it out in last year’s playoffs,…

    If anyone deserved to score a goal for the Chicago Blackhawks, it was John Madden. His empty netter was his first goal (and point) of a series despite the fact that he played some great hockey.

    Apr 26, 2010, 8:49 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Mark Recchi defies age. His hockey skills should be bottled by Oil of Olay to preserve a lady’s face against wrinkles. With one goal and one assist through the second period of Game 6, Recchi (41) joins 24-year-old Patrice Bergeron as the Boston Bruins’ leading scorer at 5 points in six games. Recchi isn’t merely…

    Are the Washington Capitals headed for yet another 7-game series? It’s one of those dim-witted but interesting stats: they’ve never made it easy – either for themselves or for their opponents – in the Alex Ovechkin Era. In their first run in the playoffs, they lost a Game 7 at home against the Philadelphia Flyers…

    Thanks to Craig Custance of Sporting News, we’re getting a better feel for just what happened at the end of the Sabres and Bruins game and exactly what led the NHL to decide to rescind the instigator penalty handed out to Zdeno Chara.

    Apr 23, 2010, 8:56 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The second period saw the Buffalo Sabres widen their lead to 3-0 while the decidedly flat Montreal Canadiens might see the middle frame as a missed opportunity. Buffalo’s Jason Pominville scored the only goal of the third period, but the Sabres hit a few posts and generally looked dominant against a punch-less Boston Bruins team.…

    Apr 23, 2010, 8:15 PM EDT

    With young defensemen including Drew Doughty, Duncan Keith and Mike Green putting up big offensive numbers at such a young age, it almost seems natural to think of the greatest boy-among-men D guy: Bobby Orr.

Montreal Canadiens at Washington Capitals 7:00 PM ET (Versus, TSN, CSN Mid-Atlantic) Capitals lead series 3-1 It’s funny to think that the last time the series was in Washington, the Caps needed a desperate surge to tie the series in overtime.
