5 Down, in double time

21st
Apr. × ’10

5) Despite some love taps McCormick did his damage with his stick in his hand and got an assist early in the game and through a few hits.  Almost a disappointment, but fighting to the last man is probably not something the Sabre’s would wanna attempt. 4) Through the early going of a game blacked […]

20th
Apr. × ’10

Andrew Ference got his face clawed by Rivet in a move reminicient of Mike Komisareks attack on Matt Hunwick, Vladimir Sobotka was […]

Bruins vs Sabres period two

19th
Apr. × ’10

Bruins squandered a power play that had the whole unit of Bergeron, Krejci, Recchi, Chara and Hunwick play the full two minutes. Sobotka drew a second penalty just moments later,  he’s playing for a contract next year and he know’s it. He may not end up here in Boston next year with the logjam of […]

Bruins vs Sabres period one

19th
Apr. × ’10
