#CAMP Day 2 – Snack Time

At this time of the year, with the NHL season tantalizingly close, we are in desperate need of something to satiate our hockey hunger.  Normally, we are good with a cheese platter, a few bottle of wine, and Miracle on the DVR. But lately we’ve been so hungry that we are getting HANGRY. Enter BioSteel’s #CAMP.   This […]

Tyler Tuesday: And So It Begins…

The Dallas Stars’ season is over but weep not, interweb friends! You know what that means? More of this! And this! And hopefully much MUCH more of this! #HatTip to Tyler and Co. for even making the playoffs and for holding their own against the Ducks. I’m sure that Seguin would rather still be playing hockey, […]

Tyler Tuesday: Beardspiration

Tyler and the Dallas Stars giving new meaning to the phrase “by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin”. They just squeeked into the playoffs and took then second Wild Card spot in the West.  I’m genuinely excited for Tyler (really I am!), given the circumstances of his departure from Boston.  He has matured into a high […]

Foxy Friday: TJ Brodie

As the regular season comes to a close, we’ll start to remember and eulogize those teams that battled and bruised and sacrificed, but in the end, fell short of the post-season.  But before you reach for that pint of ice cream or in Pants’ case, that bottle of red wine (RIP Capitals), we have something […]

Tyler Tuesday: Step Aside, Mortals

Once there was a man.  His name was Daryl Reaugh, aka Razor.  Once this man did an interview with Tyler Seguin.  A photo was taken. This photo, to be exact. In any other realm, we’d be talking about Razor in this photo because he’s kinda of a Harrison and his suit game is mad tight. But not […]

Tyler Tuesday: 35,000 feet

Chuck here! Hello from 37,000 feet! Yup, that’s right. This Tyler Tuesday is coming to you from somewhere over America. Sure, I have no legroom and the guy in front of me just leaned his seat back, but I don’t care. It’s Tyler Tuesday! Fittingly I was in Texas this week for a work conference. […]

Tyler Tuesday

Today marks what I hope will be a semi-annual feature extolling the virtues and magnificence of one very special person. Like my esteemed colleague Pants, and her undying love for Mike Green, my love and admiration for Tyler Seguin has become too great and all consuming for it to not have its own dedicated day. […]

Foxy Friday: Roman Josi

Happy New Year!  Happy Foxy Friday! It’s our First Foxy Friday of the Year and we’re starting it off right. It all actually started in 2013 when there I was,  just minding my own business, drinking a glass of delicious scotch, talking on the twitter, when WUYS reader @sarahconnors drops this Foxy Friday bomb on […]

Foxy Friday: Charlie Coyle

For those of you who may not know, Pants and I are proud alumnae of Boston University, Class of We’ll-Never-Tell-For-Fear-Of-Revealing-Our-True-Ages.  BU is a college hockey powerhouse and consistently produces NHL players. Right now there are a plethora of former Terriers representing in the big show – Nick Bonino, Alex Chiasson, Kevin Shattenkirk, Colin Wilson, and […]

A Bruins Christmas Spectacular!

From ugly sweater photos and awkward, Russian-accented renditions of “Jingle Bells”, lots of NHL teams are getting into the holiday spirit. Now comes the Bruins’ turn – and it’s a Christmas gem. The Bear in the Gang – A Christmas Spectacular In this Bear and the Gang Christmas Spectacular, the team is all gathered in […]

I Can Never Unsee This

The Boston Bruins’ faux sitcom, The Bear and the Gang, returns “December-ish” and recently, they released this little teaser. I can never, EVER unsee this. Ever. The faux-show promises to be pretty delightful and awkward – which is pretty much the mantra of this blog.

Stop the Madness

Did Saturday’s Bruins/Pens debacle really happen?  I kept hoping to wake up and find that it was all just a horrible dream.  But alas, it was not. That mess really did happen.  I’m disgusted in both teams because they are better than that. They have really made me mad.  Like flames on the side of […]

Foxy Friday: Matt Bartkowski

Sometimes being a Foxy Friday isn’t about being the #1 star or scoring all the goals.  Sometimes it is about being funny and charming and adorable. And totally crush-worthy. This week’s honoree has got it in spades. So let’s look at the reasons why Barty gets this week’s honor (besides his obvious awesomeness) In the […]

Pucks and Pups: The Bruins Edition

Hockey players.  Puppies. Two of the things we love most in the world. Put them together and let the seal-clapping and squeeeeeing commence. The Boston Bruins released their own 2014 calendar – just in time for the holiday season, natch – and here are some of the highlights I have no idea what is going […]

Buzzer Beater: Part 2

Last night was Bruins vs. Penguins so you knew that both of us were going to have to weigh in. The two best teams in the East faced off last night and the over arching theme was resiliency.  After the Penguins tied it up with 0.3 seconds left to send it to OT, some teams […]

60 Minutes

Last night, Bruins finally managed to put together a solid “60 minute effort”, as the kids like to say.  You know who is happy? Granted it was against the Carolina Hurricanes, who are taking a long ride on the struggle bus, but the effort was the Bruins’ most consistent of the season and they were […]

Foxy Friday: Alexander Steen

Who the hell is Alexander Steen? That’s what we said. We’re used to seeing names like Crosby, Ovechkin, and Sedin atop the NHL stats page but then we see this… And we’re all… St. Louis Blues forward Alexander Steen has been tearing…it…up this season. He’s got 14 goals & 20 points so far.  Blues are […]

Karma is a….

You fill in the blank. Last night, Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley both scored in the shootout to lift the Stars over the Bruins.  Perhaps it is a little poetic justice for those two guys who had to endure the embarrassing and juvenile booing and chants each time they touched the puck. Booing?  Really?  Why is that […]

Return of the Segs

After his abrupt and somewhat surprising departure from Boston this summer, tonight marks Tyler Seguin’s return to Boston.  It’s been four months since the fireworks of the July 4th trade that sent Seguin to Dallas Stars.  The pain of that day still stings at times, but like any resilient New Englander, I just have to […]

Foxy Friday: Patrik Berglund

This week, we’re featuring yet ANOTHER Swede.  Hey, not our fault that this lovely nation keeps producing the foxiest of men folk. Foxy Friday: Patrik Berglund The boring stuff – Born 1988 (aged 25).  6’3″, 220 lb C/LW drafted 25th overall by the Blues in 2006.  In his very young NHL career, he has a […]
