Forsberg's compete level drove Hall of Fame career

Talk to anyone that was around Peter Forsberg during his playing days and one word comes up repeatedly.


"He's so competitive and he hates losing more than anyone I know," said former NHL star Markus Naslund, who grew up in Sweden playing with and against Forsberg. "He would do anything he could to be the difference."

"He was a true competitor," former teammate Rob Blake said. "Always beat up physically, but when the game started he was ready."

"I think just how competitive he was," said Detroit Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist, one of many young Swedes who grew up idolizing Forsberg. "Something that I took from him was I could see three guys be on him, and he would still hang on to the puck."

Forsberg's competitiveness was one element of a stellar career that has earned him enshrinement in the Hockey Hall of Fame. He'll join Blake, Dominik Hasek, Mike Modano, Pat Burns and Bill McCreary when the 2014 induction ceremony is held Nov. 17 at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.

MONTREAL -- It's not easy to pull a positive out of a 5-1 loss, particularly when it comes on the heels of a 6-1 loss.

But if there is one glimmer of good for the Boston Bruins coming out of another loss to the Montreal Canadiens, it would be that this time, they didn't beat themselves.

They just got beat. Badly.

The Bruins had a 1-0 lead after one period Thursday before the Canadiens scored the next five goals on the way to their eighth win in the past nine regular-season games against Boston.

Thursday, 11.13.2014 / 7:45 PM / News

The Erie Otters' forward is out up to six weeks after fracturing his right pinky finger in a fight during an Ontario Hockey League game Tuesday.

"I'm sure he's got a target on his back," Crosby told The Canadian Press. "It's not easy sometimes. It's one of those fluky things. But no matter how many times you've done it, even if you talk to guys who have fought for years, anything can happen in a fight and you really do have to be careful."

Thursday, 11.13.2014 / 7:16 PM / NHL Insider

MONTREAL -- It is a regular-season game in mid-November.

But for the Boston Bruins, their visit to Bell Centre to face the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday (7:30 p.m. ET; SN360) should mean much more.

It is not just one of 82 regular-season games.

It is a test.

The Bruins have been one of the NHL's model franchises for years, and when they stumbled out of the gates this season there were whispers their long reign as the Eastern Conference's best team was coming to an end.

Bobrovsky has missed seven games, all losses, with the injury. Anisimov has been out for six games after being injured Oct. 28.

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
