Chad (Ochocinco) Johnson Wants to Fight Chara, Lucic (ICYMI)

Well by now, most of you have probably gotten pretty tired of Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson’s antics as an athlete. As a New England Patriot, he never failed to disappoint people with his on field and off field behavior. However, Johnson was relatively quiet until earlier this week when he made comments directed toward Milan Lucic […]

Video: Tuukka Rask is More Invincible Than You Thought

Tuuka Rask can literally stop shots fired out of a cannon. When Zdeno Chara, owner of the NHL’s hardest slap shot, is on your team this is exactly the type of hyperbole that one could expect to hear about Rask. But after a charity game in Finland some Boston fan may actually claim this to […]

Would the Bruins Ever Trade Zdeno Chara?

Maybe the Boston Bruins advancing to the Stanley Cup finals for the second straight year wasn’t such a guarantee after all. Or maybe that’s exactly what the Bruins want us to think. One day after getting unceremoniously ousted from the NHL playoffs by the Montreal Canadiens in a 3-1 Game 7 loss at home, the […]

Connelly’s Top Ten: Bruins Let Down City!

CLIFF NOTES * I have never seen bounces go so one way in a seven game series as the own goal off Chara proved. The Bruins allowed the Habs to dictate tone, pace, style of play the whole series – that falls on Clode. Its time for a complete overhaul. COACHING * I’m not going […]
