It's late March, and Brian Gionta has fired the shot to start a war that may come full circle in late May. Late in the second period, TK and Gionta drove to the Pens' net. TK went careening into Fleury's head. MAF did not return for the third. Those are the facts of the case, and they are undisputed.
Here's one angle of the play.
We will say one thing, that the images up in the scoreboard supports. The Pens went into the locker room during the second intermission and undoubtedly talked to TK and watch the tape of the play. For them to come out in the third like they did, it shows what they thought happened on the play. And they are the actual hockey players. Their opinions are the only ones that count, not the opinions of Internet warriors.
The incident overshadowed the game Fleury was playing, the goal Sidney Crosby scored, the debut of Brenden Morrow, and the winning streak reaching 13 games. In a weird t...

As Andy Brickley flatly says, “The Montreal Canadiens are a really good team.”
As things stand today in the Northeast Division, Montreal and Boston are tied atop the standings with 45 points apiece — also having played the same number of games. So it’ll be a dead heat going down to the wire for the division banner, but there’s still a sense among some that perhaps Montreal...
Andrei Markov tied it with 8.2 seconds left in regulation, and Brendan Gallagher scored the only shootout goal to give the Montreal Canadiens a 6-5 victory over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night.
The victory snapped a tie for the second-most points in the Eastern Conference, giving the Canadiens 47. They lead the Northeast Division by a point over the Bruins.
In the shootout...
First off , the Pens didn't have anything to report on Fleury. [ Pens ] You'd be hard pressed to find a less informative paragraph ever.
For what it is worth, Letang told reporters after the game that Fleury will be fine. But as someone pointed out Letang is also the same person that flew to Russia 48 hours before the lockout ended. h/t @mikedarnay

Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price saw the NHL's leading scorer bearing down on him and figured he had maybe an inch or two over his right shoulder exposed.
Thing is, an inch or two is all Sidney Crosby needs these days.
Crosby beat Price with a laser to the top corner of the net late in the second period, Marc-Andre Fleury and Tomas Vokoun teamed up to stop 37 shots...

ROOT, TSN-HABS, RDS - 7:00 pm/et
Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA
The Pittsburgh Penguins' current winning streak and a million "March of the Penguins" references all started with a crazy overtime win against the Montreal Canadiens. Now the Pens sit in first place in the East, while...
Vokoun came in to start the third period.
This is the first time Gionta has done something like this:
Sidney Crosby scored the game's only goal late in the second period and the Pittsburgh Penguins extended their winning streak to 13 with a 1-0 victory over Montreal on Tuesday night.
Pittsburgh goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury stopped all 22 shots he faced but did not play in the third period following a collision in front of the Penguins' net. Tomas Vokoun filled in and made...
