Shawn Horcoff Suspended 20 Games for Banned Substance, Matt Beleskey Goes Up Against His Former Team
Matt Beleskey is pumped up about facing his former team, the Anaheim Ducks tonight at the TD Garden. All season long, Beleskey has been a perfect fit for the Boston Bruins. He is not flashy at all, but plays his ass off and the Boston crowd loves him. The Anaheim Ducks have had a strange season so far and things just got weirder. Ducks forward Shawn Horcoff was just suspended for 20 games for allegedly using steroids. Horcoff has claimed that he was unaware that the treatment he used to speed up the healing process of an injury was banned by the NHL. Horcoff could be telling the truth but I just find it borderline impossible to believe athletes these days.
There will be a lot of emotion in tonight's Ducks vs Bruins game. Beleskey is eager to lay some hits on his former team and hopefully come out with a victory. The Ducks on the other hand are dealing with the distraction of the Horcoff suspension and really can't afford to not take at least a point out of this game. For a regular season hockey game, this one has more intrigue then most.
