The Vancouver Canucks have won the President’s Trophy for the first time in franchise history. The accomplishment came after the team defeated the Los Angeles Kings by a score of 3-1 on Thursday night. The night also featured Daniel Sedin hitting the 100-point mark with a goal and an assist. The Canucks currently boast a […]

Blues Blast Wings with Ten Goals

The Detroit Red Wings haven’t allowed ten goals in nearly two decades, but they did just that in the face of the St. Louis Blues. The Blues lit up goalie Joey MacDonald with five goals by midway through the second period, chasing the back-up to the injured Jimmy Howard. He was replaced by ECHL call-up […]

Chicago Blackhawks Running Out of Gas

The Chicago Blackhawks looked like a team possessed on Monday. They took down the Detroit Red Wings at the Joe by a score of 3-2 after a hard-fought game that went to overtime. By the time Tuesday night rolled around, however, many were wondering if Chicago had any gas left in the tank. The team […]

Crosby Looking Better, Getting Stronger

Sidney Crosby is staying on the ice longer and longer these days and is even tiring out head coach Dan Bylsma. Crosby skated on Sunday at the Consol Energy Center, participating in a 45-minute workout session in the early morning. “I was on the ice. I left before he got finished. So he tired me out,” […]

Eastern Conference Playoff Picture Emerges

The Boston Bruins have clinched a playoff spot, adding their name to the list of teams that’ll compete for the Stanley Cup out of the Eastern Conference.

Willie Mitchell: “Concussions Are Emotional Injuries”

The CBC’s Tim Wharnsby has a tremendous interview with Los Angeles Kings defenceman Willie Mitchell up here. Wharnsby notes that Mitchell’s views on concussions are more than worth listening to, as he’s a player who’s been down the road before and has some insight as to the issue. Last season, Mitchell’s season in Vancouver was […]

Kings Lose Kopitar for At Least Six Weeks

The Los Angeles Kings have lost two of their top offensive threats in the span of just six days. First it was Monday’s injury to Justin Williams that rose up to test the team’s resolve. And Saturday night saw Anze Kopitar, the team’s leading scorer, go down with a broken right ankle. Kopitar left his […]

Sizing Up the Wild West

With all of the trouble the NHL has been having as of late over its violent image, it’s helpful to remember that there are still sensible players out there and there are still teams looking to get into a playoff spot. There are also teams well within their post-season zones and, with two and a […]

Recchi Says Habs “Embellished” Pacioretty’s Injuries

It’s getting harder and hard to find honourable players in today’s National Hockey League, I fear. Whether it’s players delivering cheap shots to one another on the ice or, as is the case here, cheap shots to one another off the ice, hockey players are quickly leaving behind the relatively cushy reputation they seemed to […]
