Isles Win 5-4 (SO) Over Jets, Prepare to Land into Playoffs

We’re almost there, Isles fans. After being counted out at the beginning of the season without having the chance to prove themselves, the Islanders magic number is 3 with only three games remaining.

Lost … Then Found? The Rangers Week That Was

Brad Richards has looked so lost on the ice, even a GPS wouldn’t help. Marian Gaborik is probably still removing splinters after being benched again last Saturday. The power play is so god-awful, the Rangers should be the ones getting the credit for killing their opponents’ penalties. It’s been a frustrating start to the 2013 [...]

Rink Recollections: Chris Tamer, NHL defenseman, 1993-2004

By Brian D’Ambrosio Dearborn, Michigan native Chris Tamer grew up watching Bob Probert play hockey.

If you would be so brave as to follow me into Narnia… or Never Never Land… or whichever Fantasyland of your liking we can all just go pretending that all is well in Hockeyland.
