Nicklas Backstrom still hasn't played since suffering a concussion from a cheap-shot elbow to the head from Rene Bourque on Jan. 3. Then a Calgary Flames forward and now with the Montreal Canadiens, Bourque served his five-game NHL suspension but is back in the lineup. He was back in time ...

from MitchMelnick.com, I’m not going to step aside over some supposed professional code. I sincerely believe that Pierre McGuire would do a terrific job as an NHL General Manager. And I think it’s about bloody time somebody in this town talked to him about the GM post of the Montreal Canadiens.
I believe that Pierre is the best hockey analyst in the business. Almost too good...
It took just nine seconds into Rene Bourque's first shift Jan. 18 for the Washington Capitals' Matt Hendricks to challenge him to fight. On Jan. 3, then with the Calgary Flames, Bourque put Nicklas Backstrom out of the lineup with a reckless elbow to the head. That was a way ...

P.K. Subban on Adam Larsson. No penalty and no update on Larsson.
The Devils’ prize rookie draftee might miss tomorrow’s visit to Philadelphia because of the crumpling hit P.K. Subban laid on him last night. The Canadiens think Adam Larsson should sit out anyway by suspension.
The sight of Larsson stretched out on the ice was an example of vigilante...
Martin Brodeur vs. Carey Price
The Avs fell 1-0 to the Wild and veteran goalie Nicklas Backstrom, who probably would win a Vezina Trophy every year if he could play the majority of his games against Colorado.
