Sean Avery, Always Full of Class

Sean Avery is back in Gotham and he obviously grew as a person since his suspension and dismissal from the Stars. Case in point, when the Bruins were in town Saturday, Avery went out of his way to express a neighborly congratulations to¬† goalie Tim Thomas on his new contract extension. For some crazy reason, Thomas freaks out and goes nuts and attacks Avery and then it becomes a full-on melee. It’s so nice to see people better themselves, well done Sean.

I Got Bruins Fever

Out of all the young Bruins, Milan Lucic is my favorite, he plays like a young Cam Neely and has a mean-streak that I really appreciate. While the NHL governors are considering fighting, I’m glad it’s still part of the game and clearly the crowd is too; look how quickly everyone stands up to get a better view of Lucic giving Josef Melichar of the Tampa Bay Lightning his comeuppance for a high hit.

And via Deadspin comes this hilarious video from AFTER the game of a girl valiantly trying to to make her way back UP the escalator as everyone else tries to get out of the Garden.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Semin Shoots it Long and Hard

On Saturday the Washington Capitals visited the Boston Bruins and pulled out a clutch 4-3 win in overtime thanks to flukey/awesome shot from Alexander Semin 22 seconds into overtime. Tim Thomas gets flat out embarrassed when this 80 foot shot sneaks past him, check out how he quick he heads off the ice, he knows he blew it.

S’ok, there’s still like 6 days left in the regular season and then of course, the obligatory 5 1/2 months of NHL playoff hockkey to come…

He’s Better Than Anyone on the Lions

Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas got beat earlier in Wednesday’s game by the Maple Leafs’ James Blake and so when Blake came in on another scoring chance, Thomas made sure he’d make the stop this time. Taking a play out of football, Thomas tries to straight up tackle Blake and take him down; while Thomas misses a complete take-down, the maneuver does work, leading to another save for Thomas and helping the Bruins to a 4-3 win.

Stick Save, and a BEAUTY

Patrick Elias likes scoring goals, in fact, that’s part of his job. Tim Thomas did his job last night better than Elias.

More Hockey Highlights!

One of my friends, who is basically Canadian but loves the Bruins, and is one of the last people I know who was still interested in hockey turned to me yesterday and said, “Why did no one tell me the Bruins were kicking so much ass this year.” The 2008-9 NHL season folks!

Thanks to the endless publicity machine that is the NHL, somehow, no one knows that thus far the hockey season has actually been pretty good.

And among the class of the league, my Bruins who really are kicking some serious ass. Take Blake Wheeler in yesterday’s game against the St. Louis Blues. My man Wheeler is so good he takes on 5 Blues and walks away with a damn pretty goal. Don’t believe me? I have video proof!

Oh yeah, and the Bruins were playing short-handed at the time.

Boom! Shake Shake Shake the Room

Since we already saw one great hit from the Bruins game and since the Bruins were otherwise hapless, might as well see Dennis Wideman’s hit on Matt Stajan in open ice. Now I see why my mother never allowed me to play hockey.
