Quite the week for the Boston Bruins. If only it had anything to do with the hype of their first game of the season against rival Montreal Canadiens or their dramatic last minute win against the Pittsburgh Penguins last night. If only it were not for all the wrong reasons. If only it were not
On December 2nd, NHL goalies didn’t go to sleep worrying about what they would do if Nick Foligno was all alone in front of the net with the puck…. but they do now. A nasty as hell between the legs snipe job was just not something you’d think he had in the repertoire. You can
Paying tribute to the pioneers of flow. 1970′s New York City was caught in the merciless talons of disco fever, and the Rangers needed an image, a symbol, to manifest that identity on the ice night after night. That symbol was Ron Duguay. That’s when the lion’s mane found its way off the drum stools

5. Ted Nolan’s Return There are a lot of people out there who thought Nolan would never be behind an NHL bench again in this league but there he is in Buffalo of all places. This of course the franchise that pushed him out the door after a Jack Adams over a decade ago. 4.
How about the old guy sniping home the OT winner last night in a rematch of the 2012 Cup Finals? With the goal Jagr tied Mario Lemieux for ninth on the all-time goal-scoring list and tied Gordie Howe’s record of 121 game winning goals. That’s some pretty decent company.
