Lashoff covers John Mayer--uh, sings original tunes!


Lashoff covers John Mayer--uh, sings original tunes!

By Justin Aucoin

While 16 teams battled it out in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Toronto Maple Leaf defenseman Matt Lashoff found a productive way to spend his time releasing an album entitled Living on Heart (And 550K Cap Hit).

OK, we added the parenthetical.

Heres a little taste of what the former Bruin can do.

This clip is really misleading. It gives Lashoff a Kenny Wayne Shepherd-esque bluesrock sound when his album is actually just watered down John Mayer rip off. You can listen to clips here. Every song sounds just like the last which in turn sounds like some crap Mayer wrote while drunk some Monday night.

Sad, really, cause the kid obviously can play some tunes. Too bad hes wasting it on crappy slow rock pop trash.

As long as he doesnt wear Mayers mankini, were cool.

Some things can never be unseen.

Lashoff has to be the greatest athlete-turned-musician since Bostons Bronson Arroyo.

We, shamefully, own this album somewhere. Were not proud. We were young, impressionable, and the Sox just won the World Series so maybe a bit tipsy, too.

Anyways, heres Lashoffs band.

Didnt know he could afford one of the dudes from ZZ Top on his budget. Nice. We dig it.

Sadly, Myspace says he has no upcoming shows not sure why, not like the Leafs are going anywhere -- but we have a feeling what it would look like.

At least no one can throw waffles at him if they dont show up, right?

Krug, Forbacka Karlsson suffer upper body injuries vs. Red Wings


Krug, Forbacka Karlsson suffer upper body injuries vs. Red Wings

BOSTON – The Bruins ended Tuesday night’s preseason home date with another feel-good victory over the Red Wings, but it may have come at a cost.

Both Torey Krug and Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson were injured in the second period of the B’s 4-2 win over the Red Wings at TD Garden, and didn’t return to the game. Krug was hit in the face with a puck in the defensive zone during the second period, and quickly exited the ice with Bruins trainer Don DelNegro after the impact of the puck hitting his face initially took his feet out from under him.  

“[Krug] clearly didn’t finish the game, and took a shot up in the facial area,” said Bruce Cassidy of Krug, who had a couple of shots on net in 9:10 of ice time while largely playing with Charlie McAvoy in an offensive-minded pairing. “We’ll probably have an update tomorrow.”

Forbacka Karlsson took a hard tumble into the end boards in the game’s middle period, and never returned after serving up the primary assist on Danton Heinen’s goal earlier in that very same period. JFK tried to return to Tuesday night’s win over the Red Wings, according to Cassidy, but was kept out of the game with an upper body injury that has his status as questionable moving forward.

“He went into the boards late in the second. He’s day-to-day, upper body. I think wanted to – he did come back and try [to return to the game],” said Cassidy of JFK, who put up an assist and a plus-1 rating in 8:37 of ice time before leaving the game. “I don’t think it’s serious, but I can’t speculate. We’ll get another update tomorrow. It didn’t look good, but I don’t think it’s as bad as it looked. We’ll know more [about JFK] tomorrow.”

It certainly sounds like both Krug and JFK could miss a day or two of practice moving forward after the injury wear-and-tear of preseason action, but the hope is that the Black and Gold won’t be missing a couple of key performers for anything more than that.
