Hockey returned to Boston after a one-day postponement, and Jarome Iginla scored the tiebreaking goal that gave the Pittsburgh Penguins a 3-2 win over the Bruins on Saturday and home-ice advantage throughout the Eastern Conference playoffs. The game was pushed back by one day because of the manhunt for a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, who was captured Friday night. Before the game, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma wore a black T-shirt with the words ''BOSTON STRONG'' over his shirt and tie. During warmups, Bruins players wore baseball caps of the state police and Boston and Watertown police departments. The black cap for Watertown, where the suspect was taken into custody, had the Bruins ''Spiked B'' logo on the front and the word ''STRONG'' on the back.

Jack Edwards blast Matt Cooke and then apologizes for it; also, Cooke hit on Adam McQuaid

So, I ask you. What is wrong with Jack Edward's comments? "Nominating Cooke for the Masterton is about the equivalent of nominating Sirhan Sirhan as the prisoner of the year," Edwards said. Personally, I don't have a problem with those comments. Cooke is a reckless, dirty and dangerous player, who is responsible for many random, bush league acts on the ice over...

Now Must Be The Time For Fleury to Silence His Critics

Call me a glutton for punishment. Recently, I spent a couple of hours watching the highlights (if you could call them that) of the Penguins' last three seasons of playoff games since winning the Stanley Cup in 2009. As you can imagine, it wasn't pretty.  But it wasn't pretty exclusively due to Marc-Andre Fleury, as has been a common scapegoat, let's make that...

2013 Penguins a Team for the Ages

When a conversation takes place regarding the best teams in NHL history the names that usually come up are Gretzky’s Oilers, Lafleur’s Canadiens, and Orr’s Bruins. Based on the sheer talent that they display on a nightly basis,  could a case be made to include the 2013 Pittsburgh Penguins in that conversation? A case could [...]

Jack Edwards compares Matt Cooke to Sirhan Sirhan

Emotions were running high following a moving pregame ceremony as the Boston Bruins hosted the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday afternoon, just hours after an extensive manhunt for one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects concluded.  Unfortunately, this emotion apparently got the best of NESN announcer Jack Edwards as he made an inappropriate (and bizarre) comparison between...

Claude Julien Criticizes Matt Cooke’s ‘Typical’ Hit on Adam McQuaid, Calls It ‘Cheap Shot’

BOSTON — The Bruins are obviously no fans of Pittsburgh Penguins forward Matt Cooke, and they aren’t afraid to let anyone know about it apparently. Cooke was in the middle of things again Saturday night when he delivered a questionable hit to Boston defenseman Adam McQuaid during the second period of Pittsburgh’s 3-2 win over the B’s. Bruins coach Claude Julien was clearly...

Boston announcer compares Matt Cooke to Sirhan Sirhan

We as sports fans are passionate, sometimes overly. Go on any message board or large commenting section about a controversial topic and you will observe anonymous individuals making statements that are more insulting and callous than they are creative. However, this is not something you expect from a commentator or play-by-play man in a sport. Though they may have the same type of...

BOSTON — Nathan Horton looked as physically engaged as he has in a while Saturday afternoon, and that culminated in a first period fight with Pittsburgh’s Jarome Iginla. Unfortunately for Horton and the Bruins, that’s where his day ended. The big Boston winger left Saturday’s 3-2 loss to the Pens with an apparent hand or wrist injury. Horton and Iginla dropped the gloves...
