Steve Moore will have to wait a bit longer to get his day in court.

The ongoing Steve Moore-Todd Bertuzzi saga will stretch in 2013.

That’s the word according to Jeff Z. Klein the New York Times, who reports the civil suit brought by Moore against Bertuzzi, the Vancouver Canucks and Marc Crawford has been pushed from its original Sept. 24 date to late January 2013

The NHL investigation of a Kings/Blue Jackets game is over.

Human error was the culprit behind a momentary delay in the game clock that allowed the eventual Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings to steal a controversial win at home last season, according to an investigation by the National Hockey League.

On Thursday, Peter Hurzeler, a veteran official in charge of timing at the Olympics, put it in simple terms: "It’s manual — the clock doesn’t know when it has to stop."

In the game in question, the Kings were tied 2-2 with the Columbus Blue Jackets heading into the final moments of the third period. The digital game clock appeared to stop rolling down with 1.8 seconds left in regulation, remaining frozen for more than a second as the players continued to buzz around the ice.

And Tim Thomas is at the center at more controversy.

Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins has weighed in on another controversy, supporting American sandwich chain Chick-fil-A owner, Dan Cathy, who has given millions of dollars to organizations fighting same-sex marriage.

Cathy told an interviewer from a religious publication his company supported "the biblical definition of the family unit" which sparked a backlash.

Thomas wrote on his Facebook page on Thursday: "I stand with Chick-fil-A." His name became a trending topic of Twitter.
