A real Italian-American BAWSS!

Did Alexandre Burrows bite Patrice Bergeron during Game 1 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final? The referees then said no, but the Bruins — and the team’s fans — knew better.
So when the B’s and Canucks took the ice for Game 2, after Boston suffered a last-second defeat to Vancouver in the opening game, it quickly became clear that these two teams did not like each other. That...
The NHL lockout seems to be dragging on and on and the end doesn’t appear to be in sight. Commissioner Gary Bettman is usually the target for both players and fans voicing their displeasure with the lockout.
