The Colorado Avalanche: News from around the NHL - December 16th, 2013

Doug Pensinger

Some pests are just better at it than others.

His team had just lost 6-2 to the Vancouver Canucks but it was the antics of one of his own players that upset Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien the most.

Julien wasn’t impressed that pest Brad Marchand had skated by the Canucks bench, then mimicked raising the Stanley Cup and kissing his NHL championship ring. Marchand made the gestures after a scrum with Canuck centre Ryan Kesler early in the third period. It was Boston’s first game in Vancouver since defeating the Canucks in Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup final.

Parros has suffered another concussion.

When George Parros emerged from a bout with New York Islanders tough guy Eric Boulton Saturday looking wobbly, it appeared something was not right with the Canadiens enforcer.

On Sunday, Montreal head coach Michel Therrien revealed what exactly was ailing the forward.

Therrien told NHL.com after his club's 2-1 loss to the Florida Panthers that Parros sustained his second concussion of the season, and will be evaluated on a daily basis.

A hockey player jammed his finger during a fight and appeared to have it dislocated. He came back for the next  period.  Who would you guess did this? If you guessed Jarome Iginla, you'd be right. (Icky pictures on the site if you are bothered by that sort of thing.)

As the video shows, Iginla appeared to jam his finger, potentially on Kesler’s visor, during the fight. He grabbed his hand and skated off the ice in intense pain.

The image above, captured by dafoomie (@dafoomie) on Twitter, shows why, as the ring finger on Iginla’s left hand going in a direction it should not go, keeping in mind we’re no doctors. (We leave that to Mark Recchi.)

Kesler and Iginla have fought before, in Calgary on Feb. 6, 2006. It was Kesler’s second season in the NHL. It was a hell of a scrap.
