The Blue Duck attended the Bruins-Hurricanes matchup on Saturday night and both teams put on a show. And by that, I mean the Bruins blew out the ‘Canes and then beat the shit out of them on top of it all. Seven goals for Boston, all by seven different players. There were 92 penalty minutes served out, most of them stemming from multiple fights in the second period. In total, there were three fights, two resulting in blood, and one very happy blogger.
Check out the highlights, showcasing the beatdowns here: (Notice Chara playing the role of Alonzo Mourning to Kostopoulos’ Jeff Van Gundy? You would too when the 6’9″ Chara grabs you by the jersey.)

Seriously, what do you have to fight about in the preseason?
If Kimbo Slice fought half as well as Lucic, he’d still have a career.
This kid is fighting somebody everytime he laces up the skates. And you know what? I love it. Hockey sucks without it. It’s not like baseball where dugouts empty, bullpens charge in, but nothing happens. Or when football players get into it, they just push at each other’s facemasks. Not in hockey. These guys wail on each other, sans facemask, without anybody interfering. Take this fight for example, Chris Neil is getting his shit kicked in but his teammates stay on the bench and clap their sticks against the boards. They let him take his beating like a man.
Keep it up hockey, you’re earning a new fan.
Hey Vince McMahon, I think Monday Night Raw has found their next guest host. Make it happen
