There is some history between these teams, even still with Matt Cooke no longer on the Penguins. The Bruins got thrashed here in Boston/the whole of Massachusetts (because it's not one city) by the media for not fighting and standing up when Cooke killed Savard's career. » 12/07/13 10:01pm 12/07/13 10:01pm

I didn't think goal actually went in at first because I didn't believe it happened. Then I saw the replay and screamed like a girl. Then I lost it on the third one again.

Is there a play called besides a half-court iso for Livingston — a back-up point guard? This experiment in New Jersey… » 11/19/13 11:36am 11/19/13 11:36am
