Bruins do their talking on the ice

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

There was a lot of talk about how the Boston Bruins would approach the Eastern Conference Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

First, the Bruins are still upset with Penguins’ enforcer Matt Cooke for his hit on Marc Savard in 2010 that basically ended Savard’s career. Second, the Bruins are upset with Jarome Iginla for basically blocking a trade the Flames made with the Bruins and voicing his interest in going to Pittsburgh instead.

Prior to the series, Bruins head coach Claude Julien stated he insisted the Bruins do their talking on the ice and focus on the task at hand. That is to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Final.

Kerrzy’s Notebook: Troubling Times in the NHL

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

The passing of Wade Belak on Wednesday in Toronto sent an all-too-familiar shockwave through the hockey community.

Indeed, 2011 has been a challenging year for the NHL.

It all started on January 1st, when Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby fell victim to a blindside hit during the Winter Classic. He played part of his team’s next game, but hasn’t played since. It’s now eight months later and he still hasn’t been able to shake his concussion symptoms.

A few weeks after the hit on Crosby, Marc Savard suffered another concussion. The Boston Bruins playmaker became the face of a growing problem in the NHL when he was blindsided by Penguins forward Matt Cooke in March of 2010. He didn’t play again until December of that year, and after this latest concussion, it doesn’t look like he’ll ever play again.

Things took a much darker turn a few months later in May when NY Rangers tough guy Derek Boogaard, who had missed most of the season with a concussion, was found dead in his apartment. It was later determined that he died of an accidental overdose of painkillers and alcohol. READ MORE… (more…)

And I’m sticking to it – 15 minutes of fame with Jim and Geoffrey

Monday, March 28th, 2011

This week on 15 Minutes of Fame, the boys talk about the NHL and the Washington Capitals and their depth going into the playoffs this year. They discuss the Caps goal tending situation and who they would put in net if they were the coach.

Then, they discuss what the Edmonton Oilers have to play for even though they are out of the playoffs.

In this week’s GABBYs: On the good side – Joe Sakic and the Colorado Avalanche, the NHL dishes out a big suspension to Matt Cooke and Sidney Crosby is up and skating again. On the bad side – the Predator’s Ryan Suter scores a great goal against his own team, Marc Savard is having memory problems and Tiger Woods comes out with an app.

Kerrzy’s Notebook: Around the Rinks

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

In & Out

Just when it looked like Peter Forsberg was ready to make an impact with the struggling Colorado Avalanche, a familiar problem crept up on him.

After skating with the team for a while, Forsberg felt comfortable enough on the ice to sign a one-year deal with the Avs last week. He jumped through the necessary hoops to get back on the ice after a couple of years – and a couple of failed comebacks – away from the NHL and finally made his re-debut against Columbus on Friday.

He played 17:38 and was a minus-two in a 3-1 loss to the Jackets, but looked pretty good by all accounts. A night later, he was a minus-two again in a 5-3 loss to the Predators, racking up another 17:32 of ice time. As good as he might have looked though, ESPN reports he started to feel the foot that has given him so much grief slipping and sliding inside his skate – a problem that has followed him around from team to team and league to league since 2003.

Savard Done

Could this be the last we see of Boston Bruins playmaker Marc Savard?

The 33-year-old won’t play again this season and, while he doesn’t want to entertain the thought of never playing again just yet, his career may be over at this point. After taking a heavy (legal) hit from Colorado’s Matt Hunwick in January, Savard suffered his second concussion in 10 months and he says a bunch of the post concussion symptoms came back to him.

Savard told reporters that the Hunwick hit “wasn’t a bad hit at all” and the player had actually reached out to him a couple of times since that game saying he felt terrible. First of all, good on Hunwick. It wasn’t a dirty hit by any means, but I’m sure a lot of people around the hockey world cringed when they head the sound of Savard hitting the boards and saw him drop to the ground. (more…)

Kerrzy’s Notebook: Boston Beatdown/Another Headshot

Friday, February 4th, 2011

If you missed the first 1:20 of Boston’s 6-3 win over the Dallas Stars on Thursday night, you pretty much missed it all!

It almost seemed like the Bruins and Stars had been tipped off that there would be some kind of power outage at the two minute mark, so they should try to get as much game in as possible early on. The first four seconds of the game featured three stoppages and three fights, and it was 2-0 Boston by the 80-second mark. Have you ever seen anything so crazy?

If that wasn’t enough drama for one game, there was another fight at the 3:51 mark and there is likely a suspension on the way for something that happened during the second period…Lets start out with the first 1:20 though…(Video after the jump!) (more…)
