[LL] A Jolly Hockey Saturday: Bring on the 24/7!

Who's afraid of Robyn Regehr? Only Clarkson, apparently. - Claus Andersen

Bruins media will be homers, Clarkson faces suspension, the Leafs play the Blackhawks, and 24/7 kicks off tonight.

Shawn Thornton's suspension is expected to come down today. You can expect to see a lot of Boston writers faint, as the guy who slew footed someone and punched him - while he was on the ice - into a concussion gets referred to as "a great guy." Should be good for a laugh.

Speaking of laughter, Clarkson will have a suspension hearing today for this headshot to Sobotka. If you missed the hit, it's understandable, as it happened well after the Leafs were out of the game. The 5.25 million dollar winger continues to demonstrate his only skillset is getting suspended in meaningless situations. What a great buy. Some people have been ballparked at 2 games, but I'm not sure whether or not his off-the-bench suspension will count as prior disciplinary action that increases the time missed.

The Leafs will play the Blackhawks tonight - not sure who will start, considering that both goalies played against the Blues. But when that's over, 24/7 kicks off in the US! Those of you in Canada will need to wait until Rogers airs it Sunday night, censored and with commercials. When you're done laughing at the prospect of waiting, please remember not to post streams on this site. If you do intend to wait until it's aired tomorrow, it'd be wise to avoid this site and twitter - we'll have a discussion thread go up shortly before the episode starts.

The word "classless" is getting thrown around - because it doesn't mean anything - but I think this is pretty hilarious.
