    When you’re a 39-year-old NHL defenseman, you have to start thinking about life after hockey. And if you’re Dan Boyle of the New York Rangers, apparently that means thinking about a life of checking mic levels, rustling groupies and making sure there are only green M&Ms in the dressing room. 

    Yes, Dan Boyle tried his hand at the rock and roll lifestyle last summer … as a roadie for FAITH NO MORE!

    Boyle toured with the band on the East Coast, traveling from D.C. to Philadelphia (where luckily he wasn’t recognized as a walking target on stage, like a carnival game duck) to Boston and then New York. He helped set up instruments for the band and distributed tickets to VIPs.

    From the NY Post:

    Boyle met the San Francisco band about eight years ago when they played in their hometown while he was a member of the San Jose Sharks.

  • Dylan Larkin and Justin Abdelkader ruin Mike Babcock's return to Detroit

    Mike Babcock’s return to Detroit in the regular season as the coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs went quite poorly.

    The former longtime coach of the Detroit Red Wings saw inspired play by a group he helped grow and develop, and was partially done in by a rookie who never suited up for him.

    Dylan Larkin fired a gorgeous coast-to-coast goal and Justin Abdelkader potted a hat trick for the Wings.

    The Red Wings honored Babcock with a message on the scoreboard and fans cheered for him during the moment. This made the normally stoic Babcock a little emotional.

    "It was nice of them to do. They sure didn’t have to do that," Babcock said via ESPN.com. "I’ve said it a number of times, I’m glad this is all over to be honest with you. The Leafs played the Red Wings today and they won. It’s that simple."
