Matt Bartkowski Tallies First NHL Point After ‘Whirlwind’ Period of Trade Speculation (Video)

Now that Jarome Iginla has departed Calgary, teams have stepped up their bidding for defenseman Jay Bouwmeester.

skeleton horse through the gates of hell

We're starting a new month, *******. Against the Sabres, of all people. Ew. And the coaching staff has scratched Joe Vitale without our permission. Unacceptable.
