RICE & MICE: Black and blue….kidneys?

Braydon Coburn missed last Monday night’s game with a bruised kidney and was back in action just a couple days later on Wednesday. Even so, bruised kidneys aren’t to be taken lightly. The kidneys are vital to the body because they are responsible for filtering toxins out of the blood and by ridding the body of these toxins and excess fluid and salts by producing urine. Blood flows into them via a renal artery, is filtered by vessels in the kidney and leaves “clean” via a renal vein. The urine that is produced by the filtering leaves the kidney through …

Subban being booed everytime he touched the puck, and the ole chant being echoed through the Wells Fargo Center as time expired in the third period, what more could one ask for out of a 3-1 victory over the visiting Montreal Canadiens on this Black Friday?
