Days of Y'Orr:
Toronto Maple Leafs
A NOTE FROM DAYS OF Y'ORR GENERAL MANAGER PATRICE PURRGERON ESQUIRE THE III: GREG'S PREVIEW IS UPLOADED EARLY BECAUSE HE WILL BE AT THE BACON AND BEER FEST IN BOSTON.
Man, what a game on Wednesday. The Bruins brought it for 58 minutes, the best effort they've put together in since early March. When Toronto scored early in the first period, you could feel the energy filter out of the TD Garden, but then the switch was flipped and it was on.
It was amusing to see how bad the Leafs were. One could chalk it up to a lack of playoff inexperience by Toronto. One could chalk it up to their incredibly bad breakouts. Seriously - go back and watch that game. Toronto's breakout was Bruins April-esque bad.
I mean - WADE ******* REDDEN.
But that was Game 1, we're on to Game 2 and whatever happened in Game 1 doesn't matter. Except for the fact it's the same arena and James Reimer has to get used to the color of the seats, apparently. He should be emba...

One game suspension for Ference, as expected RT @nhlplayersafety: Andrew Ference suspension video. bit.ly/ZqnxaU #BruinsTalk

Andrew Ference is lucky that it was during the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs or his suspension would have been longer, this was a violation of the NHL's Rule 48 and his like this are unacceptable. Even though...
The Bruins dominated in nearly every category on Wednesday night in Game 1 of the playoffs against the Maple Leafs. The only bad news for the B’s came after the game, when defenseman Andrew Ference was suspended for one game for throwing an elbow at the face of Toronto’s Mikhail Grabovski.
Ference will sit out of Game 2 against the Maple Leafs on Saturday night to fulfill his...
We first saw Andrew Ference 3:16 during the Stanley Cup run when he had his "glove malfunction" after scoring against the Montreal Canadiens. He also failed to move out of the way when some dumbass Habs player was skating backwards and into Ference's shoulder.
Looks like Ference 3:16 is at again.
In last night's game he prepped to get hit by Mikhail Grabovski in...
Boston Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference was suspended for one game by the NHL on Thursday for an illegal check to Toronto forward Mikhail Grabovski's head during Game 1 of their first-round series.
No penalty was called on the hit midway through the first period in the Bruins' 4-1 victory.
Game 2 is Saturday night in Boston.
The NHL has suspended Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference for Game 2 of Boston’s first-round playoff series against the Maple Leafs.
Ference was disciplined after a high check on Toronto’s Mikhail Grabovski midway through the first period in Game 1. Ference was not penalized for the hit, upon further review, the league’s discipline office ruled that he illegally targeted Gabovski’s...
After I saw this elbow, I had a feeling that Andrew Ference was going to get some scrutiny from the Department of Player Safety for this elbow on Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovskiand, and he will. Ference has a hearing today with the Department of Player Safety. I have to think that he will be getting at least a game suspension for this hit.
Word out of Boston. #Bruins Ference...
Someone mentioned this hit on twitter. I thought originally that Mikhail Grabovski had taken a dive but after further review you can see that he took an elbow to the face from Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference. Bruins fans have to hope that Andrew Ference isn't suspended by the National Hockey Leagues department of player safety. I can bet that Ference will at least be fined for...
Ference elbow on Grabovski in the 1st was reviewed. Supplemental discipline possible, but seems unlikely.

Boston Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference threw a flying elbow at Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski during the first period of game one. Grabovski was focused on getting to the puck and when Ference got there first, he played the puck and then threw his elbow at Grabovski’s face. Ference will be facing a hearing for the hit and could be suspended for game two of the...
At the 6:59 in the first period during Game One of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins first round playoff match-up, Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference elbowed Mikhail Grabovski in the head. No penalty was called. Grabovski was shaken up my the hit, but stayed in the game. After one period, it`s 2-1 Bruins. Related:Toronto vs. Boston Game One 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs Live Stream
While Andrew Ference is serving out his one-game suspension, the Bruins have a difficult decision to make. Do they turn to rookie Dougie Hamilton or Aaron Johnson to fill Ference’s role.
Both players have their pluses and minuses. Hamilton may be the better player, but including him in the Bruins’ lineup would split up Dennis Seidenberg and Zdeno Chara. Johnson hasn’t played...
After dominating the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 1, logic might say that the Bruins should simply try to duplicate that performance, but it may not be so easy.
With Andrew Ference suspended for one game, Boston will need to make some lineup adjustments. That likely means defenseman Dougie Hamilton will get the first playoff action of his young career. Hamilton has been a healthy...
