The only thing more beautiful than a monstrous hip check in hockey that neutralizes the puck carrier attempting to avoid hits up the middle is a well placed open ice hit. Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik greeted Boston Bruins forward Daniel Paille with a first class ticket to the moon with this hit last night: [...]

Disclosure: I am a Boston Bruins fans, but this is an awesome hit, this is a text book legal check by former B.C. Eagle and Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik on Boston Bruins forward Daniel Paille. I also like the fact that a hard hit didn't cause an immediate fight or retaliation by someone on the opposition team.
It would make sense, of course. When a guy's medical records from a 13-month period look like Sidney Crosby's do, making a few adjustments might seem prudent. Might seem, for example, like a good time to spend some more time out on the perimeter.
Tim Thomas' return to the nation's capital was less political and more successful.
Playing about 10 blocks from the White House - a place he famously avoided two weeks ago - Thomas carried a shutout deep into the third period Sunday as the Boston Bruins snapped a two-game losing streak with a 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals.

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby practiced Monday but said he is no closer to returning from a concussion and neck injury that have sidelined him for most of the season.
Sidney Crosby has resumed regular practices with the Penguins. Along with fellow injured center Jordan Staal, Crosby is on the ice with teammates during a practice in Montreal, per various reports.
Tim Thomas stopped 35 shots to lift the Boston Bruins to a 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals at Verizon Center.
Halfway through yesterday’s first period against the Capitals, Milan Lucic fired up the pistons, charged over the blue line, and made a straight line toward the net. Naturally, he was rewarded with a Rich Peverley dish, which he converted into his 19th goal.
At 6:45 of yesterday’s third period, the Bruins finally had some hope. Joe Corvo had beaten the previously perfect Marc-Andre Fleury with a shot from the point, cutting Pittsburgh’s lead to 2-1.
Marc-Andre Fleury made 28 saves, and Evgeni Malkin had a power-play goal to lift the Pittsburgh Penguins over the Boston Bruins 2-1 Saturday, their ninth win in 10 games.
Tim Thomas' return to the nation's capital was less political and more successful, with the goaltender making 35 saves Sunday in the Boston Bruins' 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals. Playing about 10 blocks from the White House -- a place he famously avoided because of his political views two weeks ago when the reigning Stanley Cup champions were honored by President...
The Pens banked a really huge 2 points with their win over the Bruins. Matt Cooke gets the GWG, Marc-Andre Fleury was spectular. He made several game saving saves late in the third.

The Bruins were marginally better yesterday, but in a sport in which the margin between winning and losing is inherently thin, they were squeezed out again, 2-1, by the Penguins on Causeway Street.
The Boston Bruins hope to avoid matching their longest losing streak of the season this afternoon as they visit a Washington Capitals club that has its eyes set on first place in the Southeast Division.
