Predlines Morning Skate: Watch Your Head

Did you know? In the early days of the NHL, teams played with seven players per side, with each team employing a player known as a rover. Now that we have your attention Let’s skate.

The Philadelphia Flyers are back in NHL headlines. The Flyers have signed Dan Cleary. So much for getting the youth involved. Check out Puck Daddy’s thoughts.     

The Boston Bruins may have a problem on their hands. Patrice Bergeron is still in pain. Coming off shoulder, rib and lung injuries Bergeron is looking to make a comeback. If he is not at 100% Boston needs to think about holding him back. While an 80% Bergeron is better than most players; he needs to be 100% for a playoff run.  Pro Hockey Talk

How will the East be won? The Atlantic Division may hold the answer. Blackhawk Up has a preview for your reading enjoyment.

I didn’t know that an illegal hit to the head needed to be clarified, but the NHL has done just that. “Now Rule 48.1 declares an illegal check to the head as “a hit resulting in contact with an opponent’s head where the head was the main point of contact and such contact to the head was avoidable.” I guess that takes away any excesses. Just don’t hit an opposing player in the head. cbc.ca
