Yes, it is still early to be talking about trading Marty Biron. But everyone who follows the Islanders closely knows that Rick DiPietro is on his way back by the end of the year. But let’s go over some of Biron’s statistics, shall we? Games played: 13 Wins : 2 Losses: 8 OT Losses: 2 [...]
Riding the momentum of a big win over the LA Kings on Thursday, the Vancouver Canucks started off their first of two games on consecutive nights with a bang by beating the Edmonton Oilers 7-3 Saturday Night. After playing 65 minutes of hockey on Friday night, the Oilers never had a chance against a relatively [...]
I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday or their regularly scheduled Thursday and Friday plus the weekend for the Canadian fans. Now it is time to finish what I started last week with Part 3 of the NHL Award ceremony, should the season suddenly end today(You can view those blogs her for PART ONE and [...]
Was the Kings/Hawks game a playoff preview of things to come? Success is on the horizon, we just need this team to play up to it’s potential more often.
The Montreal Canadiens have re-assigned forward James T. Wyman to the Hamilton Bulldogs yesterday as it is believed Scott Gomez will be back in action tomorrow against the Maple Leafs at Bell Centre. Wyman played three games with the Habs before his demotion. He played sparingly and recorded no point. Gomez missed the past three [...]
The Blackhawks captured nine out of a possible twelve points on their long circus road trip. After thumping the San Jose Sharks, an emotional let down and fatigue did appear to set in during the final two games. I heard Jesse Rogers from Espn Chicago.com mention on the radio the other day the best circus [...]
It’s not exactly the record pace they set last season, but the San Jose Sharks again find themselves at the top of the NHL standings. With a 5-4 shootout victory against Edmonton on Friday and a 4-2 win over Vancouver tonight the Fins became the first team to reach the 40 point plateau. The Edmonton [...]
The Nashville Predators returned to their winning ways by pounding the Florida Panthers 4-1 on Saturday night. The win marked a return to Predator hockey with tough defense and a gritty offensive effort that delivered four even strength goals. After the winning streak had been broken the night before, Predators Head Coach Barry Trotz called [...]
by Brenna Solop So now that we’re well into the season and the Islanders are not quite great but not quite the horror show I anticipated, the talks of the team “moving” have simmered down. But it lingers there, in the background, a very real question mark especially when you consider the shaky ground of [...]
The Thrashers have posted an 8-3-2 record for the month of November. The penalty kill and the goaltending are easily the biggest reason for that. They keep winning games, but I think the best hockey out of this team has not been played yet.
Y!’s Puck Daddy contributing Author Sean Leahy broke the news over Twitter and the NHL quickly confirmed that Pittsburgh forward Matt Cooke will be suspended 2 games and will be fined $29,268.30 (yeah nice round number there) for his high hit on Rangers rookie Artem Anisimov Saturday night at the Igloo. The hit came in [...]
Hi folks As this is my first post on here and there will be more to come. I want to give a little introduction. I am not a writer I am a photographer. I do go into phases where I sound like a competent well thought out writer, let’s face it though I know my [...]
Hello everyone. Last night’s game, which was played at the Igloo, was the final one of a 3 game road trip in Pittsburgh against the Pens and they managed to again, not show up and get absolutely smoked 8-3. Last night, again, there was nothing good to report on as nobody played well to the [...]
The Flyers have been a very streaky team this year. Is that a new occurrence?
In this Edition: Matt Cooke and Anisimov, Jay McKee’s return schedule and the CBC calls Tenks dirty and in this case they are right. Matt Cooke and Artem Anisimov In the Saturday night opener of a home and home with the New York Rangers winger Matt Cooke took a run at Rangers rookie Artem Anisimov. [...]
Just as I settled back into things after the first holiday layoff, Milan Lucic is helped back onto the shelf with another injury. These high-ankle sprains, well some experts say they’re worse than certain knee injuries, and this four week prognosis really feels optimistic. No Lucic at the Winter Classic? Very likely, and still very [...]
The Colorado Avalanche wrapped up the back-to-back against the Minnesota Wild this weekend in poor fashion. Limping away with a mere one point, the Avs aren’t the only ones limping. David Jones, second on the team in goals is effectively done for the season with a torn ACL. The winger has been struggling with injuries [...]
Dear Gary, That is it, we’re waving the white flag, we give up, you win. It has been well known for years now that you and your friends at the NHL offices in New York don’t care for our favorite hockey team, the Detroit Red Wings. First, you stick Detroit in the Western Conference so [...]
In the early 3rd period of Saturday night’s Flyers game against the Atlanta Thrashers, Colby Armstrong laid a shoulder check into Philadelphia forward James van Riemsdyk (JVR). Armstrong would get a five minute major for Charging and an additional five minutes for Fighting with Flyers goon Arron Asham immediately after the hit. It was a [...]
The Nashville Predators began their seven game winning streak with a 3-1 victory in the ScottTrade Center in St. Louis. Friday night, the Blues returned the favor with a 3-1 victory in Nashville, ending the Predators streak. The Blues trapped the Predators all night, and the Predators seemed unable to handle the pressure effectively. When [...]
