Beatdown in Beantown

To say things got out of hand in Boston last night would be an understatement. The Bruins’ 6-3 win over the Dallas Stars kicked off with three fights in the first four seconds and another altercation with just under four minutes to go in the first period. Knuckle sandwiches:

Things got ugly in the second when Dan Paille delivered a blindside hit to the head of Raymond Sawada. Days of Y’Orr have a decidedly one sided, if not hilarious, breakdown of the evening with some fantastic Photoshopping.

Scary Moment in Atlanta

Freddy Meyer became the second Atlanta Thrashers player to collapse on the ice during a game this season during Thursday’s game versus Calgary. Meyer began to stumble as he skated towards the bench before falling on the ice where he appeared to be convulsing.

Meyer would eventually skate off on his own power, but a frightening situation to say the least.

Sabres Sold

Sabres Edge has video of the press conference outlining the sale of the Buffalo Sabres to Pennsylvania billionaire Terry Pegula.

Jonas Gustavsson Sent to the AHL

Call it a conditioning stint or call it James Reimer is a little bit awesome. Either way, Gustavsson is heading to the Toronto Marlies of the AHL to get his shit together.

Brent Johnson Photoshops!

I’m a sucker for this stuff, but thePensblog really ran the gamut with these. There’s everything from the obligatory WWE shots to Steven Seagal references.

More Goalie Fights

Dominik at Lighthouse Hockey dug deep into the archives (read: YouTube) for more examples of classic goalie fights. There’s a handful of memorable performances from the one and only Billy Smith, so I do suggest you check that out.

Cam Ward Robs Brent

Carolina may have lost the game, but Cam Ward won the highlights.
