The PHT Nightcap - Thursday, March 18th

We put a lot of content on this blog each day, and we understand it can be a bit tough to keep track of everything. So at the end of the day we’ll put up a nightly recap of all of that day’s news. Presenting the Pro Hockey Talk Nightcap:

Ryane Clow says he didn’t want to fight Morrow - Clowe eventually fought Barch after he took out Stephane Robidas.

Bruins seeking payback could be nightmare for NHL - Turns out, we didn’t have anything to worry about.

Senators need help to miss the playoffs - They may not need much, but some teams behind them have to start winning.

Tortorella and Drury disagree on Rangers’ maturity - Chris Drury looked to be onto something.

Three Bruins questionable with the flu - You know, that “post-St. Patrick’s Day bug that’s going around” flu.

Bruins should make Pens pay - legally - Once again, we really didn’t have anything to worry about.

Seabrook’s injury continues awful week for Chicago - It’s not just the goaltending that’s an issue for Chicago; they’re once great defense has started to fall to pieces.

Does the West have a ‘true’ favorite? - San Jose and Chicago are far from dominant late in the season. Is it Phoenix? It can’t be, can it?

Are the Ducks completely delusional? - James Wisiewski and Randy Carlisle are not from this planet. I’m convinced of it.

Nicklas Lidstrom: Still the one - The reports of Nicklas Lidstrom’s hockey death are completely false

Flyers’ goalie curse strikes again: Leighton out 8-10 weeks - I called it. There’s no way a high ankle sprain is just a day-to-day injury for a goaltender.

NHL hands Wisniewski an 8-game suspension - Was it enough? I think so.

Matt Cooke gets in a fight right away - Cooke ‘paid’ for his transgressions immediately, dropping the gloves and then getting pounded by Shawn Thornton.

Cooke gets a penalty for tripping - This was about the most interesting thing that happened in the game.

Quick hits: Could 3D coverage give us Hockey-tar? - The NHL in 3-D? Yes, please.

Miracle? Japan beats Canada in sledge hockey - I challenge anyone not to watch a sledge hockey game and not be entertained.

Pens win tepid bout with Boston 3-0 - About as anticlimactic as you can get.

What has happened to the ‘hockey code’ in the NHL? - I am appalled at the lack of respect that is being shown on a nightly basis around the NHL.

Paul Kariya scores his 400th career goal - Congratulations to the future Hall of Famer.
