Found April 13, 2013 on Diehardsport:
Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Oliver Lauridsen may be 6’6″ 220 lbs, but his size certainly didn’t help him against Buffalo Sabres pest Patrick Kaleta (6’1″ 200 lbs).  Kaleta threw a ton of heavy punches early and often in this bout and Lauridsen never even got a chance to throw anything noteworthy.  Kaleta is one of of the most-hated players in the league for his constant cheap-shots so it’s not surprising Lauridsen wanted to fight him.

Steve Ott tries to lick Jeff Halpern’s visor before face-off (Video)

Buffalo Sabres center Steve Ott is known for doing some pretty strange things, and he added to that reputation on Thursday night. Before a face-off against the Montreal Canadiens, Ott tried to lick Montreal’s Jeff Halpern’s visor. Is that his idea of trying to gain an advantage? If I was Halpern, it would probably work. It’s one thing for a guy to try to get in your head by...

Flyers-Canadiens Preview

The Philadelphia Flyers are facing what appears to be inevitable elimination from playoff contention, and a deep scoring slump certainly isn't helping matters.

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Snoozer of a Loss, Briere, Quick Hits

Two teams buried in the Eastern Conference standings put on a dull display of listless hockey for roughly 55 of 60 minutes yesterday in Buffalo. The Flyers and Buffalo Sabres didn't exactly put the pedal to the metal for most of the afternoon, and the result was a match that had the look and feel of a preseason game.
