Morning Line

“I mean it’s a bad hit, right? That’s what they’re trying to get rid of and you can’t be hypocritical about it when it happens to you, and say it’s fine when your teammate does it. It’s a hit they’re trying to get rid of. I mean you hear it from every player after they do it, they feel bad, and same thing, I talked to Danny and he feels bad. It’s tough, that backchecking forward, to make those kind of hits, it’s so hard to do it in a clean fashion, with the new rules. It is what it is. He hurt the guy, and I’m sure he’ll have a conversation.”

Afternoon Line

“He still has some symptoms. It hasn’t totally disappeared.  We’ll let the medical people deal with him when he gets back. Hopefully for his sake, not the team’s sake, but more for his sake that he gets better.

“It’s important for the individual here that he takes care of himself. The organization, medical staff, upper management and everybody has always done the right thing as far as that’s concerned, and that won’t change.”

Goalies Thomas, Ward Square Off in Fastest Skater + Quotes from the Red Carpet

I thought I was totally joking when I asked a couple of All-Star goalies how they would feel about a goaltender’s fastest skater competition. But last night’s first overall pick in the NHL’s inaugural All-Star Fantasy Draft, Carolina’s Cam Ward, let the cat out of the bag that tonight, my little joke would indeed become a reality as part of this year’s SuperSkills.

“Rumor is that I’m going to be doing that tonight,” Ward said. “I hope my legs don’t turn to jelly and I don’t bite it into the corner or anything like that.”

His opponent?

“I think I’m going up against Tim Thomas.”

Boston and Carolina fans have since endured some heart palpitations, I’m sure.

Savard Leaves Game With Apparent Head Injury

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,

Marc Savard got a scare last week when he was slammed into the boards during a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, but came out of the incident with only some recurring neck pain.

The 33-year-old center might not have been so lucky this time around as Savard had to be helped off the ice little more than three minutes into the second period against the Avalanche with what appeared to be a head injury.

Savard, who had been only a few months removed from post-concussion syndrome symptoms that wiped out his summer and the beginning of his season, took a hit to the head when he and Matt Hunwick collided in the corner going for a puck.


added 5:51pm, Julien says Savard will go back to Boston to be evaluated by team doctors.

added 7:27pm, video of the hit can be watched below…

Video- Savard Takes A Scary Hit

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,

Savard said that he didn’t have any headaches after the game, but he used concussion buzz words like “bell rung” and “dazed” after the game was over to describe his feelings after the hit. He assured that he felt “okay” after the game, and hoped that feeling would continue as the adrenaline peeled away in the hours following the loss.

“All I want to do, is make sure I gather my thoughts, you know, and everything came back together … fine,” said Savard. “I’ll monitor it and watch the rest of the day here, see how I feel a little bit … I was a little bit shaken up.”

more and watch the hit…

Senators With Another ‘Stinker’

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

These nags need a lot more than a swig of something. They need to be put out to pasture.

One game after coach Cory Clouston explained his team’s scoring woes by saying “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink,” the Senators laid another big fat egg. Only this time, they stunk at both ends of the ice.

The 6-0 loss to the Bruins at TD Garden was their sixth straight setback and it exposed the Senators for the very bad team they have become.

“Not a lot of good out of that game,” said Clouston. “We just turned the pucks over too many times. We had our chances, hit a crossbar and post, and they came right down on us both times and score to make it 4-0, 5-0. That kind of summed everything up. We’re so fragile right now. We don’t have that resiliency you need in this league.”...

Surely, the Senators are going to make some kind of significant move soon. Whether it’s by firing Clouston or dumping players. Something has to be done.

“We’ll have to reflect on what happened (Tuesday), make adjustments and move forward,” said Clouston.

A number of scouts were in the building Tuesday night, as was L.A. Kings GM Dean Lombardi. Unfortunately for Bryan Murray, his team wasn’t anything to look at. Or want.
