Sorry everyone, I’ve had some computer problems over the last few days and I wasn’t able to make any blog posts. The problem has been solved (thanks, Jeremy), and we are back under way.
There are five games on the schedule tonight. Three of them will split a tied series and the other two are possible eliminations. All-in-all it will be a very pivotal night in the NHL.
Boston vs Washington Game 5: 3:00 EST
This game has already started at the time of this writing. The story of the series so far has been the play of Caps goalie Braden Holtby. He’s only allowed seven goals in four games and has Washington right in this thing. Boston needs more out of their top six. Patrice Bergeron, David Krejci, Brad Marchand, Milan Lucic and Tyler Seguin have combined for a total of one assist (Bergeron) in the four games thus far.
Just as Brendan Shanahan was checking off his laundry list of supplemental discipline, Raffi Torres pulled a, well, he pulled a Raffi Torres. At 11:51 of the first period, Torres left his feet and delivered a shoulder-to-head check against Marian Hossa that knocked Hossa unconscious and required a stretcher to take him off the ice. He was transported to hospital. No word on his condition except that he has since left the hospital.
If TSN’s Bob McKenzie knows what he’s talking about, and he does, we can all expect a very lengthy suspension from the department of player safety. (TSN)
