Two seconds into last night’s Calgary Flames/Vancouver Canucks game, a giant fight broke out. How bad was it? Welp, 8 players got booted from the game right off the bat, two others were punished, and after the first period, Canucks coach John Tortorella tried to ambush the Flames’ dressing room. So basically, the two teams held one another in high regard.

Potential new NHL slogan: We’re on the ice 90 percent of the time

  • 2,323 NHL games cancelled since commissioner Gary Bettman took over his current position in 1993. (That’s 10 percent of the total games Bettman has presided over.) Bettman, who is considered an unpopular figure in the league for his role in labor disputes, could see a second season during his tenure go completely up in smoke. The NHL previously cancelled the 2004-2005 season, and inched towards canceling the current one Thursday. source

Artist Bard Edlund created this short, animated visualization of every goal and penalty minute racked up by each team in the 2012 NHL Playoffs. Despite what you may have thought, it appears that scoring goals may not be as important to the game of hockey as it would seem.

Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke marches in the city’s Pride parade on July 1 with his son Patrick and comedian Rick Mercer.
Burke’s son Brendan died in a car accident in February 2010. Two months before he died, he told the world he was gay. Burke had promised to march with him in the Pride parade that year, and he kept his promise.
The Post’s Bruce Arthur wrote about the first parade Burke marched in to honour his son. This piece was nominated for a National Newspaper Award.

Awesome and heartbreaking at the same time. What a great promise to keep.

L.A. Kings match city officials’ posted reward in baby slaying case

  • $50,000 offered by law enforcement officials in Los Angeles for information related to the murder of 1-year-old Angel Mauro Cortez-Nava
  • $50,000 was donated by the Los Angeles Kings (who are one game away from winning a Stanley Cup), bringing the total reward to $100,000 source

» What happened: Police believe Cortez was shot and killed after his father, Mauro Cortez, was mistaken to be a member of a rival gang. The mix-up is attributed to a purple T-shirt he wore which read, “I own a Honda. Be nice to me.” As for the donation, Timothy Leiweke, the president of AEG (the firm that owns the Kings) noted: “During such an exciting time such as this we can’t lose sight of the importance and responsibility we all share in keeping our community safe.”

I believe the federal government has grown out of control, threatening the rights, liberties, and property of the people. This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government. Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country.
Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas • Describing why he decided to skip an event in which Obama honored the team for winning the Stanley Cup last season. While the event went off without a hitch, Thomas’ no-show has drawn a lot of controversy, as many felt that the move showed a lack of respect to the office. The team has distanced itself away from Thomas’ decision, saying they were disappointed Thomas didn’t join in. source (viafollow)

The Boston Bruins EPIC Bar Tab

It’s pretty simple: If you win the Stanley Cup, you get to party.
And, oh, how the Boston Bruins did party. $156,679.74 in bar expenses worth of partying, according to a receipt from the nightclub where the  Bruins celebrated their game seven Stanley Cup victory of the Vancouver  Canucks.
