Days of Y'Orr:
New York Islanders
After tonight's tilt there will be 8 games left in the regular season. ******* crazy isn't it? It felt like yesterday that the NHL regular season was kicking off. And man, now we get to look forward to some playoff hockey in about two weeks.
Or if we look at the past few games, the displeasure of looking forward to some playoff hockey.
However it's not all gloom and doom in Boston. Look at the standings:
So despite how this team has been playing, they're still one of the best (statistically) in the Eastern Conference. Do we have stuff to complain about? Absolutely. The defense is still a mess, the offense is hit or miss, the power play is hockey's version of a dumpster baby and injuries are starting to fester like we are a black and vegas gold team.
Yet here we are, sitting in second place with a potential playoff preview tonight versus the Islanders. Yeah, the mother ******* Islanders. I love it that they are in the playoffs after ...

The Bruins will struggle to do much of anything in the playoffs with Patrice Bergeron, and after the center suffered his fourth concussion last week against Ottawa, there was fear that the B’s could be without Bergeron for some time.
However, it sounds like the reigning Selke winner continues to progress in his comeback attempts, and he’s already hit a couple of milestones on...
Bruins fans have had their fears confirmed: Brad Marchand has a concussion.
The B’s forward suffered the injury Wednesday night in New Jersey, when he was hit in the head by Anton Volchenkov‘s elbow. The New Jersey defenseman received a four-game suspension for the hit.
“Brad has been diagnosed with a mild concussion,” Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said in a statement...
The Bruins have been down this road before, and they’re going to tread carefully.
Patrice Bergeron has been working out and skating since his March 31 concussion, but that doesn’t mean he’ll be back on the ice in the next game or two, coach Claude Julien said Friday.
“Bergy will travel with us,” Julien said of the team’s trip to North Carolina this weekend. “He’s...
It's official, The Bruins have finally signed Swedish superstar Carl Soderberg to a multiyear deal. The only thing left is for the Swedish Ice Hockey Association to approve his transfer to the Bruins.
Soderberg will be eligible to play in the Stanley Cup Playoffs aslong as he plays in at least one game prior to the post season.
The 27 year old, is coming off his best season...
A.B. How did I miss an opportunity to go to a park in Boston and wail on random Bostonian hipsters with a pillow? This is the type of event that dreams are made of. I thought I was better than this, I thought I was up on current events. At the very least, I thought my subscription to Bashing Hipsters Weekly would have mentioned this at least once. Now I have to wait another 363 days...
Gregory Campbell scored twice in a three-goal first period and the Boston Bruins regained first place in the Northeast Division with a 5-4 victory over the reeling New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night.
In winning for the fifth time in six games, the Bruins scored three times against Martin Brodeur in the opening 8:12, took a four-goal lead and then held on. Daniel Paille and Campbell...
John Tavares has been keeping the Islanders afloat this season thanks in part to his 24 tallies, which, as of Wednesday, puts him third in the NHL, just two behind co-league leaders Steven Stamkos and Alex Ovechkin.
Who was the last Islanders player to lead the league in goals scored?

This translates to screw you Boston Bruins & America!
Just when you thought the One Eyed Swede was making his way to the Black & Gold, the Swedish Hockey Federation grabs Carl Soderberg by the meatballs.
Pro Hockey Talk:
Earlier this week, it appeared all but certain the Boston Bruins would have Swedish forward Carl Soderberg for the playoffs. Unfortunately...
Griffin Reinhart (Edmonton Oil Kings)
They broke out the brooms on Wednesday night for 2 New York Ranger and 2 New York Islander prospects as 3 of them got to advance while one saw his junior career come to an end. One prospect missed out on his team's game due to a mandatory suspension for match penalty he received in his last game.
Griffin Reinhart (NYI 2012 1st) was 1...

Just when the Bruins thought they were going to add one final piece to their forward corps, Sweden decided to object.
Just days after Carl Soderberg signed a three year, $2.6M contract with the Bruins and secured his release from his Swedish team, Linkoping HC, the Swedish Ice Hockey Federation chose to block the move.
The Bruins first...
Bruins head coach Claude Julien said that his team played better in the first period Thursday night than they had all season. Unfortunately, periods two and three didn’t go quite as well.
Boston couldn’t seem to muster any offense as they dropped a 2-1 decision to the New York Islanders, who have surprised everyone by going 9-1-1 in their last 11 games and would be a playoff...
There’s no other way to describe what Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov did to Brad Marchand on Wednesday night than to say it was downright dirty.
Volchenkov dropped Marchand with a high elbow to the head 15:11 into the second period of the Devils-Bruins game in New Jersey on Wednesday night. The hit left Marchand a little woozy, and the Bruins forward eventually fell to the...
Michael St. Croix (Edmonton Oil Kings)
It is the mantra of the Edmonton Oil Kings that they have "unfinished business" from last year's disappointing appearance in the 2012 Memorial Cup. As the only team that has both a New York Ranger and a New York Islander prospect on their roster; both players give their future teams plenty of reasons to get excited about their...
Another ugly win for the Bruins last night. Sure a win is a win is a win, two points is two points and all those sports cliches, but how many times have we seen the Bruins truly dominate a team this year? Once? Twice? They're on top of the Northeast Division and second in the Eastern Conference and they've done it by playing some pretty crappy and ugly hockey for most...
