This entry will be pointless by noon, at which point we should find out if Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference will receive a suspension for his alleged hit on Jeff Halpern, so let's just say I hope they find the second shooter before then, because clearly the Canadiens forward was shot from behind, had his wound stitched, and was back on the ice eight minutes later. Only explanation.

Here's the hit in question. I especially like how Halpern is looking directly at Ference before turning his head to the action down ice. Looks to me like a player who knew exactly what he was doing. 

Back...and to the left.
