Sabres To Go Back To Blue And Gold?
In an interview on Sabres.com, Managing Partner Larry Quinn said that the Sabres are working with Reebok to develop a new jersey for next season. As much as you might like to see the Sabres go back to their traditional colors it is also interesting that Quinn hints that the debut is tied to a whole new look of uniforms for the NHL.
Man crashes Canadiens’ practice with ‘nothing to lose’
Canadiens goaltender Jose Theodore has stopped a lot of shots in his day, but nothing like this: A stranger in hockey equipment jumped on the ice during practice and shot a puck at him.
“He couldn’t beat me,” Theodore said. “That’s the main thing.”
The practice crasher was chased to the side boards by coach Claude Julien, but wouldn’t get off the ice until he was pulled away by an arena worker. The intruder called Theodore a “great goalie,” adding he didn’t score because “I didn’t have time.”
The 28-year-old man, a recreational hockey player intent on showing he could play at a top level, identified himself as Raphael. Police spokesman Olivier Lapointe said that although two officers spoke to the man, it was “not really a police matter,” and he was not arrested.
