Catch Up on Today’s BIGGEST NHL Headlines
- Coaching change in Anaheim, Bruins perfect in Movember, ‘Pens prospect and Ovi hosts Sid
– Ducks fire their coach and hire doppelganger
Anaheim defeated Montreal 4-1 so instead of a Gatorade bath, Randy Carlyle got a pink slip. And now the twist, Bruce Boudreau will lead the Ducks the rest of the season.
– Bruins had a solid Movember
After a disappointing 3-7-0 October many, and WTHII, wondered aloud about the champs. Doubts are lessened after an amazing 12-0-1 November (lost in a shootout to Detroit on Black Friday) here are all the numbers from NHL.com http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=604171
– The rich get richer
If the Pittsburgh Penguins needed anymore help (HUGE sarcasm alert) they might get it with the arrival of former #1 pick Simon Despres from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton due to injuries on the ‘Pens defense.
– Let the rivalry resume!
Tonight on NHL Network the modified USSR-Canada Cup resumes…ok, it’s just Ovi versus Sid the Kid at the phone booth in D.C. This is the first time in 11 months that these two foes have met on the ice and maybe this will be the spark Ovi needs to get going, because Lex Luther needs Superman, the Joker, Batman etc etc.
