Found October 23, 2012 on Boston Sports Then & Now:
This Will Be The Last Happy Image Of Marc Savard. It’s almost been two years since Bruins’ forward Marc Savard received his second major concussion and he has not played a game since. Most Bruins fans can recall where they were when Marc Savard received a forearm shiver from the Penguins’ Matt Cooke which left him crumpled on the ice. And he his career would be changed FOREVER. Most Bruins fans can look back with a smile and remember Savard’s OT winner against the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2010 playoffs. Unfortunately, that was the LAST HAPPY image of Marc Savard on the ice. He was not on the ice with his teammates when they hoisted the Stanley Cup in Vancouver. The Bruins did petition for Savard to get his name on the Holy Hockey Chalice which was approved and rightfully so. But Matt Cooke STOLE that moment to celebrate with his teammates on the ice from him and he can NEVER  get that back. But Savard still deserved to be immortalized for eternity because of his vital role in turning around the Bruins franchise. With the signing of Savard and Zdeno Chara, the “Spoked-B’ became RELEVANT again on the Boston sports scene. And he received one HELL of a RAW DEAL. Bruins and hockey fans everywhere were holding out hope that Savard would make a TRIUMPHANT RETURN. Unfortunately, there will be NO fairy tale ending for #91: For the fans that keep asking there is no comeback in the foreseeable future I miss the game it has given me everything I have today — marc savard (@MSavvy91) October 22, 2012   I do in fact hope there is still a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel to play but that rest on the doctor shoulders so far #nochance — marc savard (@MSavvy91) October 22, 2012   thanks to my fans for all the positive thoughts and encouragement — marc savard (@MSavvy91) October 22, 2012 This is the classic case that BAD things happen to GOOD people. Hang in there Marc and focus on what is REALLY IMPORTANT…..your health and your family.

Tuukka Rask Injures Groin While Tyler Seguin Notches Hat Trick in Bruins' Overseas Action (Video)

There was both good and bad news for Bruins fans on Tuesday.

If in fact there is a hockey season in 2012-13, the Bruins had Rask penciled in as the No. 1 goaltender on...

Tyler Seguin Interviewed By Swiss TV

Poor Seguin. He has absolutely no idea what the hell this guy is trying to ask him and its so awkward. Apparently this quick interview was done when he landed in Switzerland to play for EHC Biel. Honestly, I have no idea what the hell the guy is asking him as well. I think he's asking him if he did any training with the team? **** if I know. Maybe the interviewer should have...
