I'd like to congratulate the Toronto Marlies on being the only Toronto team to record a victory on Wednesday night.
On-Ice: I'd like to congratulate the Toronto Marlies on being the only Toronto team to record a victory on Wednesday night. The Boston Bruins embodied "Boston Strong" in Game 1. Wade Redden with a goal and an assist; hey, who invited him back to the NHL? Good for him.  Andrew Ference is known as an 'Eco-Warrior,' but that elbow to the head of Mikhail Grabovski wasn't very organic.

Off-Ice: In his post-game interview, David Krejci wore a hat and jacket in support of the Boston police and U.S. Army for their heroism. Classy, classy move.

Pens pound Islanders

On-Ice: So, if you own a Lamborghini, Porsche, and Ferrari, it's really no biggie if the Ferrari needs to go in for repairs. As much as the Penguins want Sidney Crosby back in the lineup, they're doing alright. All night long I've been singing 'No Crosby No Cry' to the Bob Marley tune. The Penguins were so dominant they chased Nabokov from the net and Poulin filled in.

Off-Ice: No sooner did James Neal come back from injury, he gets rubbed out along the boards by Travis Hamonic in the second period, and his right ankle did something no human ankle should do. He left the game and didn't return. And Mr. Marty Reasoner didn't use a lot of reason when he kneed Jussi Jokinen. Don't go too far from your phone Marty, Shanny is calling.

Sharks draw 1st blood

On-Ice: This was an evenly matched bout. The Sharks showed more grit in the third where they scored two goals to take the lead and never look back. I hope Tommy Wingels scores a goal, simply because I want to yell out 'Wingels!'

Off-Ice: One hour before the start of the game, tickets were still available.  Really? Playoff tickets in a Canadian city still available an hour before puck drop? Tough crowd
