Boston hockey fans are lamenting another year without a postseason for the Bruins. Stephen Harris from the Boston Herald is especially concerned with rookie GM Peter Chiarelli's decisions to move Brad Boyes and Milan Jurcina at the deadline, as both players are flourishing in St. Louis and Washington respectively.

Jason Pominville has joined the 30 goal club this season, and really has not looked back since his series clinching goal (clip)against the Senators in last year's playoffs.

Colorado's streak is worrying people in Calgary. Love it!

Cam Ward should be back later this week.

Denis Savard wants Hawk teammates to challenge eachother more. He uses a great story about himself and Steve Larmer as an example.

I still don't believe it, but the Avs are only 4 points out of 8th spot, and are for 'real.'

Stars' President makes a good point by saying that Nashville has 'failed hockey' because they did not mention Mike Modano's accomplishment (surpassing Joe Mullen) over the PA during the game on Saturday night when it occurred.

Give us back our losing streak??? HAHAHAHAHA

KELLY HRUDEY writes a piece about composure for the Calgary Herald.

The Predators stand behind Tootoo, calling it self-defence. Personally, I kind of liked it. It's old school hockey! Just because Robidas gets wheeled off on a stretcher doesn't play with my emotions at all. It actually adds to the entertainment value! Alas, Tootoo could be suspended, and the game gets wimpier by the fucking minute.

***UPDATE: Tootoo was handed a 5-game suspension today**** Bah!

The Continental Curse?

Shanahan is pressing hard for a return, but won't be rushed back into the fray.
