Adapt or die: how Brad Marchand went from notorious pest to prolific scorer

Once known as one of the NHL’s most infamous agitators, the Boston forward has blossomed into an offensive force – and quietly entered the MVP conversation

Brad Marchand didn’t like the look of what he saw. The 5ft 9in forward walked into the visitor’s dressing room at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto with his Boston Bruins hat pulled low over his face. He tried to get to his locker beside Patrice Bergeron as the hordes of hockey-hungry media in Toronto grilled his teammate.

“Nope,” Marchand said, in a declarative sense, when he got to his stall. He dipped back out again, away from from the thirsty mob.

NHL Winter Classic: an Aussie view of Montreal Canadiens v Boston Bruins – live!

It’s the NHL’s eighth annual outdoors game – and these two old rivals face off at a chilly Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Follow all the action with Matt Cleary, who’s liveblogging from sunny Sydney

7.12pm GMT

Canadiens owning this fixture, they’ve had 12 shots on goal to two. The puck – made of galvanised rubber, they’re frozen before the game so they don’t bounce too much – is shooting about, and the players are going at it. And … well, there’s the odd call for icing, which is shooting the puck too far up the rink. Shot! Bruins attack, and make the Canadiens goal-tender make a couple of saves. Fans in the crowd, dressed in winter ski-ware, many beanies. And the Canadiens come again, and Tuuku Rask makes another save, he’s been busy, our Tuuku. And the Canadiens have a power player because Bruins No.54 got hit in the chest with a flying puck. Seems you can’t do that.

7.07pm GMT

Okay, great puffs of white ice fluffing into the air. Men scrap for the puck with the intensity of seagulls fighting for a French Fry, armed with giant whacking sticks. There’s some pushing and suchforth. Men skate off, men skate on. Puck is shooting around at very high speeds, even warp speeds, you wouldn’t want to wear it in the teeth, this much is certain.

The forgotten story of … the Barons, Cleveland’s ill-fated NHL team

The Cleveland Barons were an honest to God, living and breathing NHL team, until they became the last major US sports franchise to fold

Ever heard of the Cleveland Barons? Don’t feel badly if you haven’t because you’re not alone. Who were they? They were a real, honest-to-goodness National Hockey League team … or just about. Or just barely. A blip in the NHL’s books, the Barons skated for just two completely and utterly fruitless seasons between 1976 and 1978, and if not for some last-minute wheeling and dealing, they might have slipped into oblivion even before their inevitable expiration. When they finally did flee the scene, their main legacy was in a link to a trivia question – name the last “Big Four” team (NHL, NBA, MLB and NFL) to cease operations.

Go ahead, ask the biggest sports fans you can find the question – they’ll never get it.
