VIDEO: Matt Cooke Ejected, Hit on Adam McQuaid

Matt Cooke was handed a game misconduct and ejected from the first game of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Bruins after delivering a disorienting hit to Adam McQuaid. Cooke is most infamously remembered by Bruins fans for his basically career-ending hit on Marc Savard in 2010. What’s your opinion of the hit?

Bruins Continue to Slide, Lose to Penguins 2-1

The Bruins have had a terrific season thus far, entering Saturday afternoon’s matinee with the Pittsburgh Penguins only three points out of first place in the Eastern Conference. But recently their play hasn’t been up to that level, the roar of the seemingly unstoppable Bruins had seemingly hit a wall, they are only 4-4-1 in […]

Thomas Leads Red-Hot Bruins Over Crosby’s Penguins

When you’re winning, everyone contributes. The same has held true for the Bruins over the last 15 games, over which the Bruins have an amazing 14-0-1 record, with the latest triumph coming Monday night over the East-leading Pittsburgh Penguins.

Marc Savard Will Not Play in 2011-’12 Season, Career Likely Over

The news does not come as a complete shock, but it is still sad to hear. Bruins center Marc Savard is going to be shut down for not just the 2011-’12 season, but possibly for the rest of his career due to post-concussion syndrome.

Pacioretty Adds Fuel to Chara Fire

Unlike his career, Max Pacioretty is refusing to let the banter about the Zdeno Chara hit die. When asked, he responded, “I am upset and disgusted that the league didn’t think enough of (the hit) to suspend him. I not mad for myself, I’m mad because if other players see a hit like that and […]

NHL Hockey: To Fight or Not to Fight

As the Boston Bruins, Montreal Canadiens, Pittsburgh Penguins, and New York Islanders have all shown, fighting is alive and well in the NHL. Now, no one will argue that fighting in hockey is in any way new; current rules regarding punishment for “fisticuffs” date back to the 1920s. But it does seem like these last […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Penguins, Monday January 10th

The Bruins (21-12-7) will look to rebound from Saturday night’s embarrassing loss this evening, when they skate with the Sidney Crosby-less Pittsburgh Penguins (26-13-4).

Colin Campbell Responds to Allegations, Puts Foot in Mouth

Recently, Colin Campbell has given several interviews regarding the fiasco he finds himself in. Being asked about everything from the Savard e-mails to calls for his resignation, to what it’s been like in general, Campbell seemed to labor through his answers, that is, when his answers were relevant at all.

To: Mr. Colin Campbell, Senior Vice President and Director of Hockey Operations for the NHL From: A Bruised and Boiling Bruin Dear Mr. Campbell, You might remember a still-unanswered letter I sent you last spring concerning Mr. Matt Cooke’s less-than-legal hit on Mr. Marc Savard, which occurred the night of Sunday, March 7, 2010.  I […]

NHL, Colin Campbell Biased Against Marc Savard

Colin Campbell, the NHL’s senior vice president of hockey operation and all-around disciplinarian, publicly called Marc Savard a “little fake artist.” Really, it was an e-mail conversation with former NHL director of officiating Stephen Walkom, but everything becomes public when you hit send. This is just the next revelation in a long line of completely […]

Who Makes Up Your “Mt. Rushmore of Hatred?”

Hatred. We all have it, whether we admit it or not. As sports fans, we’re fueled by hatred. There wouldn’t be rivalries if it weren’t for hatred. We wouldn’t get so emotional after big games, win or lose, if it weren’t for hatred of the opponent. This week, two of the world’s most hated athletes […]
