Coach Bruce Boudreau was pleased to add Dvorak to the line up.
"He can still skate," said Boudreau. "He can still play...

Dominion, Dominion, Dominion.

(Jeff Gross/Getty Images) Throughout the offseason, rumors of Cherry Hill native Bobby Ryan returning to play for his hometown Philadelphia Flyers were omnipresent. Everything seemed right. Ryan was on the block for most of the season and was unhappy with the management. He even was documented saying ”I dont care, move me” and that “Philadelphia would [...]

Nice shorthanded goal by Tommy Wingels to put the Sharks up 4-0 over the Ducks, but watch Corey Perry with a needless shot to Dan Boyle who was following the play.
No penalty on the play but Boyle and Perry did go at it soon after this goal.
