Say what you will about the Blackhawks – Blues rivalry – some will sardonically compare it to a hammer and nail, at least in the playoffs – but it seems pretty clear that they really, really don’t like each other.
The two captains exemplify that distaste, and they really showed it on Saturday.
Times are tough for the Anaheim Ducks, and the latest news doesn’t paint a picture that’s one bit rosier.
The team announced that defenseman Simon Despres is still dealing with a concussion suffered from a hit that took place about a month ago. The one bright side is that he’s at least starting the process when it comes to getting better.
GM Bob Murray said that it will still be about a week or two before Despres is even cleared for physical contact.
