Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk spent a majority of the NHL lockout playing for EC Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian league. If you were to guess that Salzberg, a team sponsored by the Austrian energy drink company Red Bull, were to make the beverage a large option in their team hydration strategy, you would be wrong. It was the ONLY option.
It may be a while before Johnny Boychuk drinks a Red Bull. There wasnt water or Gatorade – only Red Bull – in Salzburg Red Bulls locker room

Now that the NHL Lockout is over, it’s time to start talking and writing about hockey again.

Boston Bruins star Tyler Seguin is young, rich, and a Stanley Cup champion. He's very successful and talented on the ice, but when it comes to cleaning your house, he's pretty awful at it.

The Bruins would seem to be at an advantage as a lockout-shortened NHL season approaches.
For starters, the Black and Gold were one of the best-represented NHL teams in Europe, with 11 members of the team opting to wait out parts of the lockout by playing in Europe. While no one will mistake European action for the NHL, there’s no denying the advantages of staying in game shape...

The Bruins dropped a 4-2 decision to the Canadiens on Oct. 29 of last season, a setback that hurt reasons extending beyond the fact that it was a loss to the hated Habs.
The loss dropped the Bruins 3-7 on the young season, leading everyone to the assumption that the Bruins had fallen victim to the dreaded Stanley Cup hangover.
The good news, though, was that 10 games represented...
