Weekend Recap: Battlefield 4 banned in China, NHL news and notes, NFL Playoff Picture
Battlefield 4 Banned in China
According to IGN Dice’s Battlefield 4 has been banned in China following the release of the China Rising expansion pack because the Chinese Government is concerned over the content within the expansion pack which features a fictional story of Admiral Chang who is trying to overthrow the Chinese Government. China’s Ministry of Culture is fearing that the content “endangers national security and cultural aggression.”
Head on to the IGN post to read the entire story.
Blues go 2-0 over the Weekend
The St. Louis Blues continued their roll Saturday and Sunday with wins over Chicago and Dallas. The win over Chicago featured a 2 goal third period come back and a shootout as the Blues won 6-5 in the shootout. The game against Dallas was a lower scoring game but it also required extra time as the Blues won 3-2.
Seidenberg Out for Season with Torn ACL/MCL
Boston Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg is out for the season after suffering a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee. The injury came late in the third period in a game Friday night against the Ottawa Senators on a play that can only be deemed as fluky because it was a clean collision Senators forward Cory Conacher but Seidenberg seemed to land awkwardly after it and it really looked bad.
Sharks Snap Ducks 10 game Winning Streak
The San Jose Sharks won 3-1 on Sunday night over the Anaheim Ducks ending their 10 game winning streak. The Ducks had last lost on December 3rd against the LA Kings. The Ducks last regulation loss was on November 26th at Dallas.
Chargers, Saints clinch Wild Card Spots; Packers, Eagles clinch division crowns
In the NFL the final week of the season featured 13 games with possible playoff implications. And the Wild Card clinchers were the San Diego Chargers who beat Kansas City’s B team in overtime. And the New Orleans Saints who beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home.
Meanwhile the division winners who clinched yesterday were the Green Bay Packers who beat the Chicago Bears in Chicago 33-28 in what was a great back and forth game. And the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Dallas Cowboys in Dallas in a tight game despite the Cowboys throwing out Kyle Orton as their starter with Tony Romo being out after surgery on his back.
I’ll have the playoff schedule and predictions up later this week.
