Today is the “day after” for three teams in the NHL. First the Avalanche who I explained in my recap played a pathetic and embarrassing 3rd period last night against the Minnesota Wild. It is also the “day after” for the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins who are the two teams affect by the devastating hit Zdeno Chara put on Max Pacioretty last night. Unless you haven’t turned on a computer today you have likely seen the hit but if not you may see it here.
