Alright. Now score.
I can't believe I'm saying this: but Boston fans don't deserve this.
Sean Avery is totally fine with this.
Everyone knows the cradle of liberty is TD Banknorth Garden.
I think "fk you" in English means, approximately, "fk you" in French.
Tip: It's impossible to get a job in Boston media unless you list "moron" on your resume.
"The guy came up out of the Subway exit to street level and brushed into me trying to get ahead of me on the sidewalk," said Chara. "That's rude. So I shoved him backwards. I would have done it anywhere. It's not my fault that there were four flights of stairs behind him. It was just bad luck for him being at the wrong place at the wrong time. That's the way the game of life is."
The victim, who has yet to be identified due to severe facial fractures and bruising, also broke his neck, all of his ribs, his back, his pelvis, and both femurs. He also had his left leg torn off when he rolled all the way down the steps and into the path of a subway train.
According to sources close to Hall of Famer Ray Bourque, the legendary defenseman would like to sign with his former team, the Boston Bruins, in hopes of finally winning a Stanley Cup in Boston.
"Winning with the Avalanche back in 2001 was great for Ray," said his longtime agent, Sid Grant. "But we all know that was never his career goal. He played 21 seasons in Boston and this is one of the best chances he has."
The Bruins currently hold a 3-0 lead over the Philadelphia Flyers in the Eastern Conference semifinals, with only the No. 4 or No. 8 seed waiting for them in the Eastern finals. It's as close as Boston has been to a Stanley Cup in years. But as much as the team wants to remain associated with the longtime face of the franchise, they're not sure how much they want him on the ice.
"We're playing our best hockey of the season right now," said Claude Julien. "I'm not sure how much I want to mess with our roster. Plus, isn't Ray, like, even older than Chris Chelios now?"
Bourque, who turned 49 in December, is 13 months older than Chelios, who played seven games this season for the Atlanta Thrashers.
"Chris has stayed in game shape through his 40s, while Ray has been retired for nine years," said Julien. "Plus, let's not pretend playing for the Thrashers is like playing in the playoffs. In fact, it's actually impossible to play for the Thrashers and play in the playoffs."
But opening up a spot for Bourque is very popular around town.
"With the us winning and the Red Sox losing, the bandwagon is filing up pretty fast," said left wing Milan Lucic. "When I tell people I play for the Bruins, they say: 'Oh, do you know Ray Bourque?' I then have to explain to them that he hasn't been on the team for a decade. But I'm sure if we got him back, people would get excited about the rest of the team, too."
The Bruins admit that, if forced, they would much rather play 50-year-old Ray than his 24-year-old son, Chris, a Washington Capitals minor leaguer.
