BRENDAN SMITH RUMORS

Brendan Smith Wanting To Fight Zdeno Chara Was The Cutest Thing Ever

The Red Wings aren’t exactly known for fighting (ie. they don’t fight), and that made Brendan Smith’s faux attempt at throwing down with Zdeno Chara just that much more funny on Sunday. Brendan did his best to let the big fella know that he wanted to throw down, and Chara responded with only a giggle. Just perfect. The Bruins would also get the last laugh as they evened the...

Bruins captain Zdeno Chara and Detroit Red Wings defenseman Brendan Smith got into a shoving matching at the end of the first period in Sunday’s first-round playoff game at TD Garden.

The “Red Wing Way”

from Stephen Whyno of the CP at NHL.com, Just because Detroit Red Wings players don't really talk about the franchise's streak of 22 straight playoff appearances doesn't mean they don't know all about it.
