PATRICK BORDELEAU NEWS

The Fading Enforcer

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, In the last three years, while fighters have left the NHL via retirement and attrition (and in Boogaard’s case, a death via drug and alcohol overdose on May 13, 2011), younger sluggers have not filled the gloves they’ve left on the ice. Within this window, players who fit this category are Patrick Bordeleau, Luke Gazdic, Tom Wilson...

Wild say 'not tonight' in Game 6 win, head to decisive Game 7

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota Wild players slowly made their way to center ice after officials escorted Colorado Avalanche forward Patrick Bordeleau to the bench following a post-game skirmish. With sticks held high, the Wild saluted the home crowd, who did the same to the players, both parties in appreciation of the other. Both sides fulfilled their duties in Game 6 of the first...

(Video) Patrick Bordeleau takes a run at Jared Spurgeon

Funny, I didn't see any mention of this in the Denver Post this morning when I was reading their objective coverage of the series between the Av's and the Wild. I wonder if Adrian Dater or Mark Kizsla will cover this in their articles? Don't count on it. It would screw up their story line.This is a blatant attempt at a leg check and could be worthy of a look from the...

Havlat, Sharks bury Avalanche 5-1

Yanked from the lineup on Wednesday in Anaheim in the biggest game of the season, Marty Havlat returned to tally three goals and one assist in the Sharks’ 5-1 win over Colorado on Friday night at SAP Center. The Sharks, locked into the second seed in the Pacific Division regardless of the outcome, recorded their 50th win of the season (50-22-9, 109 points). Havlat’s goals came...

Avs win 50th of the season with victory over Blues

The Avalanche won its 50th game of the season Saturday in crushing the Western Conference-leading St. Louis Blues 4-0 on their home ice. The Blues were plenty frustrated by it, too, and got a pound of flesh at the end when Blues forward David Backes jumped on top of Avs star rookie Nathan MacKinnon and punched him, appearing to hurt MacKinnon. It marked the end of a very chippy...

Hockey fights of the week

Some weeks we feature close, tightly-contested fights where it’s difficult to pick a winner. This is not one of those weeks. This week you’ll see five lopsided battles where you almost feel sorry for the loser – almost. 5.

Avs win a fun game over the Canucks in OT

Well, that was an up-and-down game. It was a very odd feeling match, but the Avs managed to pull out the 3-2 OT win. The Canucks came into tonight on the second half of a back-to-back, so I was expecting to see a tired team, but they had a lot of jump for their style of play. We also had to keep an eye on the Boston - Chicago game (which, incidentally, the Bruins won handily shutting...

Avalanche runs away from Senators in Andre Benoit's return to Ottawa

"Benoit from Bordeleau" — that probably wasn't the offensive combination most thought would be the big story line to a potential Avalanche win Sunday. That was the case, though, in Colorado's 3-1 victory over Ottawa. Andre Benoit, a former Senators player, converted Patrick Bordeleau's saucy crossing pass late in the second period to break a scoreless tie...

Jordan Nolan goes for huge hit, whiffs and injures himself

Los Angeles Kings forward Jordan Nolan went for a huge hit on Colorado Avalanche forward Patrick Bordeleau when Bordeleau moved and they clicked skates. This sent Nolan hurtling towards the boards and he injured himself, slamming his shoulder into the boards. It definitely looked horrible but Nolan was able to get up and get off under his own power.

Hockey fights of the week

Welcome to this year's 10th edition of Hockey Fights of the Week. This installment is a bit marred by the renewed debate over fighting after the Thornton-Orpik debacle. While that incident was horrible, it's important to remember that it wasn't a fight and it doesn't really belong in the same conversation as the scraps below.  With that, enjoy some outstanding...

Avs/Blues- Bad Blood Brewing

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs, But this idiot also makes the following observations about the game tonight: - Chris Stewart made a classless gesture after dropping the gloves with a 35-year-old defenseman and winning the fight, throwing his arms in the air. The Avs thought so too. - Patrick Bordeleau was sent out on the ice by Patrick Roy later to see if Stewart...

Varlamov leads Avs over Capitals

The Colorado Avalanche are off to a soaring start, even if they pretend they're nothing more than an average team. Little mind games in order to keep winning them. ''We're playing like we're a .500 hockey team and not a 14-2 team. That's the key,'' Matt Duchene said. ''You stay grounded and you stay humble and hungry.'' Semyon Varlamov...

Red-hot Avalanche improve to 14-2, its best start after 16 games with 4-1 victory over Caps

Hockey Hall of Fame goalie Patrick Roy is undoubtedly a player's coach. His Avalanche players are seemingly willing to run through walls for the rookie NHL bench boss who oozes passion and intensity. It's infectious, and Avs fans are not immune. The Pepsi Center wasn't quite sold out Sunday but the excitement inside the building harkened memories of Roy's glory days...

3 best Bruins bouts of the 2013-2014 season (thus far)

Hockey fights. There are few red button issues in the NHL that strike such a chord as this subject, with some rising to their feet to cheer on the fisticuffs, and others turning their heads in bitter disgust. In my own personal experience, I've encountered individuals who simply laugh at the idea of acceptable fighting in a professional sport. Individuals who insist physical...
