Here’s video of the unfortunate incident in which he was cut by Zack Kassian’s skate in early November:
It’s easy to say that the 27-year-old should just take a measured approach with the Olympic break so close, but it’s just as easy to ignore the toll months of rehab can take. Bolland admitted that the process has been “grueling” to TSN.
So far, it seems like the pesky center has been a nice fit in Toronto, too; he has 10 points in 15 games. That’s just one fewer point than he managed in 35 contests with the Chicago Blackhawks last season.
The Maple Leafs have these games remaining before the break:
Saturday: vs. Ottawa
Tuesday (Feb. 4): at Florida
Thursday (Feb. 6): at Tampa Bay
Saturday (Feb. 8): vs. Vancouver
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
That said, it the very specific present, they’ll be watching Tuesday’s game from the press box.
After an unsatisfactory practice amid flailing playoff hopes, Flames head coach Bob Hartley made a big statement tonight, taking Monahan, Gaudreau and Lance Bouma out of the lineup as healthy scratches against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
#TORvsCGY Roster Update: Sean Monahan, Johnny Gaudreau, and Lance Bouma will be healthy scratches for tonight’s game vs. the #Leafs.
