More Tortorella brilliance

We here at BSB are big fans of John Tortorella. Sure, he’s curt with the media, but we aren’t media, so we really don’t care what he says in interviews. We are more concerned with his on ice decisions, his roster decisions, and how he handles the locker room. This brilliant move covers the third aspect, and it is directly related to Chris Kreider. Elliotte Friedman of CBC pointed...

Should the Rangers Target Ovechkin?

My answer is an overwhelming YES. And no I don't mean send Mike Rupp out there to fight him. What I'd like to see the Rangers do is hit him everytime he's near the puck. Make life miserable for him. With the exception of the Marc Staal hit, they haven't done that at all this series.Very reminscent of last series, when they said they were going to be physical with...

Have the Capitals figured out Lundqvist?

The old book on Henrik Lundqvist was always to shoot high glove side. It was Hank’s biggest weakness, and was exploited a few years ago by Sergei Fedorov when the Capitals completed their comeback in the playoffs after being down 3-1 in the series. Fedorov’s goal was high glove side from a decent angle, and was a shot that a lot of people would have liked to see stopped. It seems...

New Lines in Practice, Zuccarello on Road to Return

Late in Wednesday's 2-1 triple overtime win in Washington, head coach John Tortorella mixed up the offensive lines in attempt to spark the game-winner in what was a well-defended outing for the third time in this series.
