New Jersey Devils forward Stephen Gionta was trying to carry the puck into the Florida Panthers zone during the third period when Dmitry Kulikov had other ideas. Gionta chipped the puck past Kulikov and tried to jump by him, but unfortunately for Gionta, he got wrecked right into the Panthers bench. It was a perfectly timed hip-check and the fun for the Panthers wasn’t over yet.
As Gionta jumped over the boards to get back on the ice, T.J. Brennan gave Gionta a shove which threw him off-balance and he went flying on to the ice. It was sneaky enough that no penalty was called on the play. Gionta and the Devils got the last laugh though as the Devils won 6-2 and Gionta had one goal and one assist.

When New Jersey forward Stephen Gionta was trying to slip past Florida defenseman Dmitri Kulikov, he must have assumed he was about to take a big hit. Gionta tried to nimbly jump beyond the check, but instead found himself knocked over the boards and sitting next to the Florida bench.
Gionta likely imagined that once over the boards he'd have no problem safely making...

The New Jersey Devils exited the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference way earlier than they hoped and expected.
And they went out kicking and screaming.
It was hardly a graceful departure for the reigning conference champions. One year after a surprising run to the Stanley Cup finals, they are gone without getting a chance to defend their title in the postseason.
Standing at 6' 5", 229lbs, George Parros is an intimidating figure on the ice. Apparently, intimidating to everyone accept the 5' 7" Mats Zuccarello, who stared down the Panthers enforcer after a goal mouth scrum in the second period...
...i got so pumped when I saw Zucc get right up in Parros' face. Fearless out there.
...not sure what Paul Maurice...

The Bruins play just one day after the most emotional game all year. It was also another lose late in the season. The Bruins were ridding a wave of huge emotions but it wasn't enough to overcome the Penguins.
Today the Bruins face a bad Florida Panthers team who are 13-25 on the season. To put that into perspective Ray Emery, Chicago's back up goalie, has 16 wins. The reason...
