To put it simply, Bruce Peter is a hockey fan from Sasaktoon, Saskatchewan who has an interest in the game beyond the NHL. Since 2010, he's been covering issues surrounding the international game, European professional leagues and junior hockey for SB Nation at Puck Worlds. In early 2010, he covered IIHF World Junior Championships in Saskatoon for Puck Daddy, which gave him an added desire to cover the global outreachs of the game. In late 2012, he moved to Melbourne, Australia and continues to follow the game from one of hockey's lesser developed nations.

Oilers Out-Lose Habs on MaxPac's Big Night

32

The Habs win a game they were supposed to try and lose, keeping themselves ahead of the Oilers in the NHL standings. But on the plus side, Max Pacioretty stole the show with two goals, including his 30th, one year to the day of his neck being broken by Zdeno Chara.

"p.k. always uses his keister to lay the big hit. Eventually that will take its toll on his spine, and he'll get injured." -posted on habseyesontheprize.com Subban: "Keister? I actually think I'm less likely to get injured that way because I'm using the strongest part of my body rather than my shoulder. Guys are so big and fast nowadays that you see more dislocated shoulders or sprained AC joints. When I'm using my hip and my keister, it's probably putting me at less risk of that happening."

P.K. Subban responding to a comment Kevin made last summer Chris pointed this out in a game thread recently, but I somehow missed it until now. We love you Pernell-Karl at EOTP, don't worry too much about "Dr. Van Steendelaar" :)

"We didn’t even play a bad game. That’s the most frustrating thing about this year. If I could explain it, we wouldn’t be where we are right now," added the veteran forward. "We were in the game, we were in control, we were playing well, but it seems like there’s always something that happens. I don’t want to blame luck, because I know luck is something you make yourself."

Mathieu Darche, trying to figure out the 2011-12 season. Every once in a while, in post-game, a player breaks a bit from the stock athlete quote and says something that really sums things up. It's been a surreal, frustrating year.

Damn the Haters

34

Joonas Nattinen returns to action, Leblanc close as well

+

It's probably time we start hilighting the players that are coming back from injury as well, given the lack of healthy bodies in the entire organization. The Bulldogs will be using Joonas Nattinen in Aaron Palushaj's spot for this weekend's series in St. John's, Newfoundland. Nattinen missed all of training camp in both the NHL and AHL, and will be broken in on RW with Brian Willsie (C) and Brock Trotter (LW) despite his natural position being centre. Louis Leblanc is also close to a return following off-season shoulder surgery, following a similar recovery as Lars Eller.
