So long, Bruins. Good luck with creaky 40 year old Chara. Brad Marchand? Who is that? I don’t see him on the score sheet. All I know is that it was 4-1 and the Leafs won 4-2.

This penalty call on Dominic Moore was atrocious - SCoC
You never want to blame the refs, but...let’s do it anyways.

The Marlies play the Amerks tonight in a rare Tuesday night game at Ricoh Coliseum. Kerby Rychel will not be joining them due to an automatic one game suspension for an instigator penalty in Saturday’s game. Seems like bullshit to me. If any suspension should be handed out it should be to the Senators’ McCormick for his Third-Man In Misconduct penalty.

Unfortunately, we are still recovering from the disaster on Zeta Reticuli. This is mostly my fault as I pressed the auto-destruct button on the PPP Space Kitten Ranch orbital station. In my defence, who would suspect a kitten ranch would even have a built in auto-destruct function? That’s like a plot device out of a B grade science-fiction movie like Star Trek: Insurrection.
