Every game, every where on the Internet at some point in time, there’s a few assholes making racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. comments for the world to see. It’s happened before. And it happened again last night after PK Subban scored a game winner.
Bruins released this statement:
Bruins President Cam Neely issued the following statement:
“The racist, classless views expressed...
After Boychuk’s goal I tweeted this:
The Yosetemi Sam celebration was a nice touch

And then John (@CamFan81) made this beauty:
You tell ‘em I’M coming… and hell’s coming with me, you hear?
Some good news to come after last night’s bummer. Patrice Bergeron, Mr. Perfect himself, is a finalist for the NHL Foundation Award.
What is the NHL Foundation Award you ask?
It is presented to “an NHL player who applies the core values of hockey – commitment, perseverance and teamwork – to enrich the lives of people in his community.”
From the NHL’s press release:...
Tonight’s recap brought to you by Prilosec and Irish Whiskey. This thing must have been a ton of fun to watch for people who had no Caron horse in this race.
You know how to lose games to Montreal? You take dumb penalties. For all the things you can say about PK Subban, you can’t deny the fact that he’s an extraordinarily talented hockey player. He looks like he was put on...
Note: I like to consider myself a pretty rational hockey fan when it comes to talking about the game. I’m probably wrong in this assessment, but I like to think I can be objective and I can say when the Bruins are playing ******, diving, being dirty, etc. The Canadiens though? The Canadiens make me irrational as a mother ****** so this is fair warning to all our friends up north...

With the Bruins and Canadiens dropping the puck tomorrow, we felt that today was the proper time to launch our newest DOY product – Mountain Slew.
Do you wake up irritable?
Do you hate when people on the bus get to seat quicker than you?
Does that chirpy ***** in the office annoy you?
Well then Mountain Slew is the right drink for you! Mountain Slew is made up of premium rat piss...
A month or so ago we were contacted by PumperNicholl from The Royal Half and asked to participate in the first annual Professional Hockey Bloggers’ Association awards voting. Of course we said yes because we love TRH and we love to prove the PHWA wrong (by getting positions right).
Here are the quick results:
Hart Trophy: Sidney Crosby
Lady Byng: Ryan O’Reilly

So folks have been sending us stories that Habs Eye on the Prize have been writing and well it’s great people think…

Before you read on you should know that this isn’t a post defending the Canadiens. I feel like some assbag is going to read this be then be like “Holy **** I can’t believe this guy is a Bruins fan he’s probably a Habs fan in disguise – blah blah blah” My point here is to kill some stupid ******* narrative that is spreading throughout the NHL like wildfire.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen the Bruins play and a while longer it’ll be. Round 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs can’t start until all teams finish Round 1, meaning Weds. night where Wild/Avs and Kings/Sharks play their decisive Game 7s.
That would mean the schedules would be released for Round 2 on Thursday and the Conference Semi Finals would begin on Friday. But not...
Zdeno Chara is a god among boys out there on the ice and today he’s been nominated for the Norris Trophy along with Shea Weber and Duncan Keith.
The James Norris Memorial Trophy is awarded annually to the National Hockey League‘s top “defense player who demonstrates throughout the season the greatest all-round ability in the position”.
Here’s a look at their advanced...
Where to begin, where to begin…
First and foremost, I’d just like to say that this is truly a difficult recap to write. Do I focus on the now concluded series with Detroit, taking further opportunity to rip on that cesspool of a city and question the decision making of Coach Hair? Or do I just totally ignore the Red Wings altogether, and write entirely about the upcoming...
Chad Johnson has a new mask, compliments of Pro’s Choice/Vaughn. It’s pretty sleek.
Reminds us a lot of Tim Thomas’ white/grey mask, but with a little color splash with the gold paint. It’s look awesome and we really like the the bear paw prints along the top and sides. Nice touch.
Only downside? No “Hi, I’m Chad Johnson” motif. Maybe next time.
BOS leads the series 3-1
Tuukka Rask has been an absolutely monster in this series. For some reason, there’s a contingent of Bruins fans who believe that Tuukka Rask sucks. I know, I’m shocked too but it is out there man. They believe Tuukka Rask is made by the defense in front of him. They believe that Julien’s system made Tuukka Rask. You can find it everywhere. Twitter,...
A day after Patrice Bergeron was named a finalist for the Selke Trophy, Tuukka Rask was named a finalist for the Vezina Trophy.
The Vezina Trophy is awarded annually to the National Hockey League‘s goaltender who is “adjudged to be the best at this position”
Rask, along with Colorado’s Seymon Varlamov and Tampa’s Ben Bishop, will now wait until the announcement of...
Editor’s Note: This was written by Rachel Murphy, who’s currently traveling Spain and making the DOY Staff feel like giant, uncultured losers (Spoiler: We are). We meant to post this yesterday, so any stats doesn’t include Dougie’s two assists last night. Follow Rachel on Twitter for more hockey and travel adventure goodness.
This season Dougie Hamilton has really found his...
A common joke about the Bruins is that if a team really wants to beat them, all the other team has to do is start their back-up. The Bruins seem to score just fine on starters, but throw a back-up in and the Bruins make them look like… well, Greg says it best:
Quite simply the Bruins were out hustled, out skated and just all around out played by the Red Wings in the first period...
OK, so not really a shocker. What would be shocking is if Patrice Bergeron wasn’t named a Selke finalist. But he is.
Patrice Bergeron has been named a 2014 Selke Trophy Finalist. Read full release for details: http://t.co/CPHj0IWwQV ^BB

And soon he’ll have another Selke in his trophy case at home. Or he should.
BOS LEADS SERIES 2-1.
Can we stop with the Marchand ********? I feel like there needs to be a hockey clinic on the difference between diving and embellishing. Can they mean the same thing? No, they can’t but they can be used in the same sentence. Point:
PK Subban is diving and embellishing to get calls out there.
What Marchand did on Tuesday isn’t a dive. It is embellishing...
Habs fan steals a stick meant for a little kid. That’s how they role up in Montreal. Even Patches is like “WTF, dude?”
Brad Marchand took a hit from Brendan “Let Me Fight Chara” Smith last night near the offensive blue line.
He got hit on one knee but favored the other while getting up, causing a firestorm on twitter.
I hope Marchand is nominated for an Oscar after that acting job. Somewhere Leo DiCaprio sobs.

First rant. Then recap.
The Octopus throw is the dumbest ******* tradition in sports. It’s disgusting. Who in their right mind would want to skate through that slime? It hasn’t even made sense in about fifty years. You wanna throw a sixteen-tentacled sea beast on the ice? Go for it. Shouldn’t be too hard to find one in your cesspool of a city. And spoiler alert, octopus is...
