Last night, the Habs Goon/forward Ryan White caught Flyers defenseman Kent Huskins in the head with this dirty check. You have to wonder if the NHL will be giving White a very long suspension? White was given a Match Penalty for this bushleague hit on Huskins. These are also the types of hits, that the NHL is trying to eliminate.
Yesterday, the Flyers GM announced that Kent Huskins is out with a concussion as a result of the dirty White hit.
Today we find out that NHL department of Player Safety has requested in-person meeting with the Canadiens’ Ryan White, which is not a good sign for White.
S/T to Kukla’s Korner for the videos. Last night, White played a grand total of 1:31 and racked up 20 minutes in penalties. You have to wonder if this is the last time that the Canadiens will see this one-dimensional player on the ice this season, if ever.

NHL Press Release NEW YORK – Montreal Canadiens forward Ryan White has been suspended for five games, without pay, for an illegal check to the head of Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Kent Huskins during NHL Game No. 626 in Montreal on Monday, April 15, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today. Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining...
Playing for respectability in the waning weeks of the strike-shortened 2013 season, the Flyers managed to hold off a late rally from the Rangers Tuesday night for their 19th win of the season.
The Flyers (19-21-3), 5 points behind the Rangers for 8th place in the Eastern Conference, were fresh off of a 7-3 smackdown of the Montreal Canadiens comming into the Wells Fargo Center...
Interesting reaction on Twitter from Columbus Blue Jacket fans living in the midwest to Steve Mason.
They all like him but the book on him, they say, is that he can be very good or very average. Which sounds very much like what the Flyers have gotten from Ilya Bryzgalov these past two years.
I don't think for a second Mason was brought here to unseat Bryz as the No. 1....
Wednesday night, the Philadelphia Flyers took to twitter to announce that two-year contract extensions had been signed by both Zac Rinaldo and Jay Rosehill. Rinaldo, 22, would have been a restricted free agent at the end of the season. Due to his play this season, he is very deserving of this contract extension. Although he is [...]
Brayden Schenn, Erik Gustafsson and Kimmo Timonen scored to give Philadelphia's faint playoff hopes a boost, and the Flyers beat the New York Rangers 4-2 on Tuesday night for their second win in two nights.
Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored for the Rangers, who have a tenuous hold on the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The Rangers have 46 points...
When looking at the NHL as a whole, it is easy to see that several NHL netminders thrive when given a second chance to prove their worth.
As an example, one can point out the likes of Ray Emery (Chicago Blackhawks), Carey Price (2010-11 with the Montreal Canadiens), Craig Anderson (Ottawa Senators) and so on and so forth. One can probably name several players in this particular...
Carey Price is Kanyon. Ok. That’s unfair. But only somewhat. Price didn’t start for the Montreal Canadiens tonight against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Peter Budaj, the winner of his last six starts prior to tonight, started the game and performed like hot garbage. He gave up three goals on nine shots in the first period before…
The Philadelphia Flyers did the Sabres a solid by kicking the NY Rangers on Tuesday night. The Winnipeg Jets refused to help the Sabres, who sit all alone in tenth place (42 points) with five games remaining. If Buffalo are going to make a serious move to secure a share of the eight-seed, they have no choice other than to win its next two games in regulation: at Boston tonight and at home to...
Montreal Canadiens (26-11-5) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (30-10-0)
ROOT, TSN, RDS - 7:00 pm/et
Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA
The Pittsburgh Penguins are in first place in the Eastern Conference. The Montreal Canadiens are in second. Seven points separate the two teams. The Pens could put some distance between themselves and their opponents with a win in...
The Habs are like this terrible thorn in your side that never ever goes away. And then, of course, the thorned area gets infected. And then gangrenous. And they bring Carey Price with them, too.
He's so SAD. Not starting is a serious burn. He's gonna have to talk to mad jagerbombs to sort out this emotional tiff, you guys.
Also, lols to Root for having the...
The New York Rangers (21-16-4) visit the Philadelphia Flyers (18-21-3) at the Wells Fargo Center starting at 7:30 p.m. For a preview go to Yahoo! Sports.
