Brassard then dropped a pass back to Dan Boyle, who sent a wicked slap shot toward Canucks goalie Ryan Miller. Before it could reach Miller...

Bro, Your Face Sprung A Leak

  You really have to give Dan Hamhuis of the Vancouver Canucks credit for this brawl last night with Jakub Voracek. It would’ve been acceptable for Dan to go down once the blood started blasting into his visor after a wicked shot to the left side of his face. But that’s not how Dan rolls. A bloody visor isn’t going to stop Dan from landing a couple of nice bombs on the side...
