Hard to Explain Slide

nhlbruins:

SUNRISE, FL — As the B’s sat in their quiet visitors’ locker room in the BankAtlantic Center, even some of the most veteran NHL players in the room were hard pressed to explain the B’s 6-2 setback to the Florida Panthers.

“I don’t know what we did, but we did something,” said goaltender Tim Thomas, lamenting what seems a complete loss of puck luck. “A lot of the times you get the luck you’re working for — not that we’re not working — we’re trying.

“[There] just haven’t been a lot of bounces like this in a long time.”

Like Don Cherry said, perhaps it began with the distraction of Tim Thomas and his political views..

Bruins Acquire Trio of Veteran Players

BostonBruins.com – After a rather quiet day, the Boston Bruins acquired New York Islanders forward Brian Rolston and defenseman Mike Mottau in exchange for prospects Marc Cantin and Yannick Riendeau as the 3 p.m. trade deadline approached.

They also traded Providence defenseman Steven Kampfer for Minnesota Wild defenseman Greg Zanon.

Rolston, 39, is in his 19th NHL season and returns to Boston after playing with the Bruins from 2000-04. In 338 games with the Black & Gold, Rolston finished with a total of 101 goals and 135 assists for 236 points.

It was a good trade deadline day @cbcsports today. I’d say the Sabres were the big winners.

What a moron. That is all.

Meet the guy who threw the salmon on the ice during the Canucks-Leafs game: Nanaimo hockey fan Joey Smith tried to act casual as he headed into a Vancouver Canucks game with a five-pound salmon strapped to his stomach.The fish was vacuum sealed and flattened beneath his sweater and jeans, but it was heavy and awkward. He heard his friends’ wrapped fish had started leaking and security guards were doing patdowns.“I was a little worried getting caught” he said. “But there were three of us with salmon taped to our chests so I knew we wouldn’t fail … and a lot of what I was thinking had to do with getting the fish off.”
