Hitting the Links: The World is Ending Edition

The Bruins loss last night had entirely nothing to do with the team, it was obviously directly correlated to the death of Julius Caesar and the Ides of March. Or at least that's what Jack Edwards was rambling about during last night's broadcast.

Flyers games are always interesting and that team has only lost a single game in their last eight. Additionally, Ilya Bryzgalov set a franchise record for shut out minutes...yes.....a Flyers goalie did something good. Between the that and everything that's been happening in Boston's Back Bay, the world is definitely ending.

After the jump: the Bruins signed a goalie out of the WHL, Dougie Hamilton is awesome, CROSBY IS BACK and hockey hair.
