What day is it today? Why it’s October 3rd. Sorry I just had to go there, it was too good to pass up. On this October 3rd, 2013 the Buffalo Sabres currently sit at 0-1 on the season after a rough and painful game in Detroit. I guess the best thing you can take away from that
game is that no one was injured. The Sabres will be back in action tomorrow night when they square off against Ottawa for the home opener, hopefully they give the fans a better showing.
But for now while you digest that Sabres loss, let’s take a minute to get caught up around the NHL world shall we?
The start of this hockey season has been interesting no? Right from the preseason brawl in Toronto, to George Parros being knocked unconscious there’s been a fair share of violent fights and last night the Avalanche head coach decided to get in on the action. After first overall pick Nathan MacKinnon was hit knee-on-knee on a questionable hit by the Pittsburgh Penguins Ben Lovejoy, new coach Patrick Roy lost his mind and nearly jumped through the glass. Check this video of the incident out. [You Tube]
Considering all the dirty hits and fights we’ve seen thus fair in the 2013-2014 season, let’s take a peek at the Boston Bruins. Which Bruins will spend the most time sitting in the sin bin? [Bleacher Report]
