Loui Eriksson has had some tough time finding a break since arriving in Boston via the Tyler Seguin trade last summer, and he certainly couldn’t catch one during the Bruins-Blues game in St. Louis on Thursday night.
Almost halfway through the first period, Eriksson caught a stick right in the mouth courtesy of a Blues player battling for a loose puck. The high-stick somehow went uncalled by referees, even after Eriksson began bleeding profusely from the mouth.
The Bruins forward had to have some emergency dental work performed off the ice and end up losing a few teeth as a result. He returned to the game shortly thereafter, because hockey.

The Boston Bruins are among the NHL’s best teams. They’re leading their division, and they’re also fighting for the top spot in the entire Eastern Conference. Yet there’s still room for improvement.
The B’s made one minor move prior to Friday afternoon’s Olympic trade freeze, which means they’re done making moves until the Olympics are over. Once the NHL season resumes...
Before the Olympic freeze hit, the Bruins pulled off a massive trade:
BOS trades Carter Camper to CBJ for Blake Parlett.

Uh, okay. So who is Blake Parlett? No ******* idea. Apparently he's more of the puck moving defenseman-mold as our friend Mike Miccoli told us.
So there's that. Blake Parlett...

Hey, in case you weren’t aware, Zdeno Chara is tall. Too tall for Sochi’s Olympic village beds. But don’t worry, an ottoman extension will fix that. At least he was one of the lucky ones to get a pillow.

Why are Bruins-Blues games so magically delicious? Please, PLEASE let them meet in the playoffs. Seven games of this would be ridiculously good. Sure the Bruins lost, but what a great game.
Gutsy performance by the Bruins too. Johnny Boychuk, according to Jack Edwards, had played more games than the rest of the Boston D-Men that were playing COMBINED. The young guys made their...
That's probably Tuukka Rask after looking at the defensive pairing that could be in front of him tonight. It should surprise anyone that Zdeno Chara will not be playing tonight because he's on a plane to ********** Russia. I have no problem with Chara heading to Sochi to be the flag bearer for Slovakia. When the season began Boston made it a point to lower Chara's minutes...
