Red Wings superstar Pavel Datsyuk spoke about being the underdog versus the Presidents trophy winning Boston Bruins:
He must be a cat guy….
Or he loves lamp…
Pot Of Baked Beans Goes To Reddit Hockey!
Bruins’ free agent acquisition Jarome Iginla preformed above & beyond expectations this season making everyone forget the trade deadline fiasco of 2013. He has brought grit and leadership to the team. He has stabilized linemates David Krejci and Milan Lucic who have disappeared in past regular seasons.
All he did this season with the Black & Gold was score 30 goals (his most since 2012) and was a mind blowing +34 which was fourth overall in the NHL. He is now 16 wins away from his first Stanley Cup Championship.
It’s the best time of the year…..it’s the NHL Playoffs! Time to get jacked!
Our beloved Boston Bruins will be battling to return Lord Stanley to his rightful place. And the Big Scary Man Guy’s Bruins Playoff Pump Up Montage will make you bang your head until your neck is sore!

Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombings which struck fear in the city and country, but also galvanized it’s people.
April 15th 2013 is a day you will never forget and always remember.
It was surreal…
It was horrific…
It was heartbreaking…
It was also inspiring…
ESPN produced this nicely done documentary on the tragedy and how sports helped Boston heal.
These are very well done and will bring you to tears again…

Red Sox slugger David Ortiz tweeted his approval of SNL’s Keenan Thompson’s impression of him last night.
Thompson does a great “Big Papi” all the way to his beautifully sculpted/painted on beard.
His lunch at the White House & Bats For Bats is just classic.
The Bruins Stanley Cup first round match-up has been set. The Black & Gold will take on their Original Six brethren, the Detroit Red Wings and I am a wee bit scared.
The Bruins ran away with the division after a scorching hot 15-1-1 March, but the Red Wings gave the B’s everything they could handle during the regular season, beating Boston 3 out of 4 games. As Joe Haggerty Of CSNNE pointed out, two of those loses were without Red Wings’ ALL WORLD forward Pavel Datsyuk in the line-up. And captain Henrik Zetterberg has also missed considerable time.
Unfortunately, the Bruins don’t pick their opponents and the Columbus Blue Jackets didn’t do the B’s any favors staying hot down the stretch to secure the 7th seed (they will face Pittsburgh in the first round). Columbus would have been a much better match-up especially due to the their lack of playoff experience. The Red Wings are on the complete opposite end of the spectrum as they are very battle tested. Detroit recently secured their 23rd straight playoff berth which is the longest current streak in the NHL.
