Found May 27, 2013 on Days of Y'Orr:
It's the Bruins and Penguins world and everyone else sucks. Am I doing this right? Here are the current offensive leaders: Not bad. Big surprise is Horton. He seems to be invisible this post-season but he's quietly wracking up the points and is the league's best plus/minus. He also is in second place for GWG these playoffs. They're not as memorable as the 2011 run but a GWG is a GWG, dammit. Also, Krug is only three goals behind Sidney Crosby for the post-season lead and he's played half the number of games. Not bad for the rookie d-man. He also is second place for power play points. Hopefully this trend can continue against Vokoun. Also (Captain Obvious alert) Pitt is stacked. Stopping Malkin/Neal/Crosby is going to be a big task. We'll really get to see how Boston's young defensive-core handles the speed and skill of the Penguins. We love what we've seen from them so far, so this should be a fun series to watch... also, stressful.

Boston will ‘land’ Iginla, but not in the way they’d hoped

As the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch suggests, for one player, the Eastern Conference Final may be...A wee bit awkward...Given that he helped scuttle a trade to the team his Pittsbugh Penguins are facing: Jarome Iginla didn't want to join the Boston Bruins. Now, he's got to beat them. In a matchup the Pittsburgh Penguins winger probably would have rather avoided, he...

LINK CITY: Vokoun wants to be the man, Iginla, Crosby free

Hockey Porn or The Slot, The Stick and The Box. by @ChicksDigHockey

Hockey has a language all its own.

Does she mean porn? Yes. If you watch enough hockey you’ll realize it’s riddled with pornographic innuendo. Some miss it while others are keenly...
