Hitting the Links: Weekend/Emergency Recap/ SEGA Edition

Sorry for the epic lateness of the weekend links, my school's IT department decided to go ahead and screw with the network this morning and mess everything up. I'll keep this short: Tyler Seguin is all kinds of awesome. He's probably the most exciting player we've had since the guy we basically traded for him, and Seguin's only 19 freakin' years old. Who knows how good he's going to be in the end.

Bruins News

 

  • DJ Bean of WEEI tries to explain the Bruins' early-season woes. Hopefully that talk will end soon. [WEEI]
  • Newsflash: The power play still sucks! Is it in the players' heads? I vote yes. [Globe]
  • There was talk in the open thread last night about Johnny Boychuk's time as a winger in the Avs organization. This article talks a bit about that and about his development in general. He's looked pretty good this year after a rough playoffs. [Globe]
  • Nicholas Cotsonika of Yahoo! Sports on the Bruins and Canucks and their struggles. Nice quote from Henrik Sedin: "Maybe Boston because they won." Gotta love that. [Yahoo! Sports]
  • The Projo on the Bruins and the Blackhawks and post-Cup issues. [Projo]

 

NHL News

 

  • Kings defenseman Drew Doughty got leveled last night by Flyer Zac Rinaldo on a big, clean hit. Unfortunately Doughty is out 7-10 days, but it's not a head injury. [Puck Daddy]
  • Evgeni Malkin did not play in Pittsburgh's game against Buffalo last night. He is still dealing with soreness in his surgically-repaired right knee. For the Pens and for people like myself who took him in fantasy expecting a big comeback season, this is not good news. [Pro Hockey Talk]
  • Nasty incident in Friday night's otherwise great Sharks-Ducks game. Duck Jason Blake got stepped on accidentally by Sharks defenseman Brent Burns and is now out 3 months with a "severely lacerated" right wrist. Scary. [Pro Hockey Talk]
  • Bob McKenzie on the Arron Asham- Jay Beagle controversy. Asham called Alex Ovechkin a "hypocrite" after Ovechkin called him out for his post-fight antics. Can we get a Pens/Caps 24/7 Part 2 or something please? [TSN]
