For once I have a good reason to skip a Sabres game. I'd rather get stabbed than watch another one.

Conveniently I'm getting a vaccine during the game. It'll be less painful than watching. Less side effects hopefully, too.

Sabres having a fantastic finish.

Well we can see the flyers are performing as expected, if you're expecting a meltdown.

I wouldn't go that far. Buffalo went 3-5 against the Flyers. But when they won, they won big. 6-1, 6-1, 5-3

Some hard work getting done today in Buffalo.  Sources indicate a Taylor Hall trade is getting close at this point.

Holy shiat.  If I had to guess Foligno is going to the third line so he, Hyman and Kerfoot can play puck hound for 15 minutes a game.  That's one hell of a checking line.

I caught the last few minutes of this one. I agree with you about the Kniggits's helmets. They look very minor-league.
Anyway, I did not see the play you referenced earlier involving Reaves. I got the LV feed so they glossed over it in the 1st intermission.
The hit that Garland made in the last minute -- beautiful old-style hip-check -- should not have been a penalty in my opinion (unless you think it was interference). The guy that went after him should have received one, but did not. Very confusing.

Thanks. Now that I see it, there will be a suspension. He brought his right arm up and directly contacted the head, when it could have been avoided.

There was also knee-on-knee contact. The player never returned to the game due to a lower body injury, officially.

Upon further review, my judgement stands.
Reaves did not appear to make deliberate contact with the knee. It was more like the inner thigh just above it.
Deliberate contact with the head, yes. Banishment for several games.
Did Reaves receive any penalty at all on the play?

That's too bad. He was in a really vulnerable position when he was hit. Even without the head shot, he was gonna get hurt.

That's no surprise considering how badly the Bruins need D-men. They have their top four all out right now and got smoked by the Caps.

In this context (digital artwork) NFT to me is a form of provenance or authentication. Forgery is rampant in both the art world and sports collectibles. Having a verified way to determine if an item is authentic would be valuable.
This is good only if one ignores the carbon footprint needed to generate the blockchain in the first place.

Rare opportunity to start watching the Bruins game near from the start. Probably about half an hour into the game.

Got ugly quick. My girl (a Bruins fan)  is joking, "Turn it off." then "Get that poor kid out of there." So I start just fast forwarding through the game after it's 3-0. It doesn't get any better and then I realize I've caught up to live. We laugh about that.

I made it to the second intermission before playing the Celtics game. Which started bad, but you don't give up on NBA games unless the lead is over 30 points in the first half.

8-1, ouch. Bruins used to have real problems with the Caps. But this year they've done really well.

A few days ago they gave up two quick goals on an ill-gotten 5-3 power play, but still won. Not sure what that fight to start the game was, but it didn't do the Bruins any favors.

Bruins are going to need to hope all their deficiencies are health related and they can get their team back and everything locked and loaded for a playoff run.

I was almost thinking they'd try to deal Krejci to a contender in return for some young hopeful.
