Nashville Predators Sign KHL Scoring Dynamo Steve Moses

The Nashville Predators have once again added a high-scoring forward from the Kontinental Hockey League and one has to hope this works out better than the Alexander Radulov situation. This time, the KHL player in question is the one and only Steve Moses. The Predators announced the signing of the 25-year-old forward to a one […]

Business as Usual? Canucks Clinch Playoff Berth Tuesday

The Vancouver Canucks clinched their playoff berth on Tuesday, getting it done under first-year coach Willie Desjardins. The 2013-2014 season, where they missed the post-season, was seen as an opportunity to blow things up and try again. Now they’re seeing the fruits of their labours. One of the biggest differences is in goal. Roberto Luongo […]

New York Rangers Win Presidents’ Trophy

Thanks to a 4-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night, the New York Rangers have clinched the Presidents’ Trophy. It’s their third such honour. “Winning the Presidents’ Trophy is not an easy thing to do; just look at the teams right now fighting to get into the playoffs,” Rangers coach Alain Vigneault […]

The San Jose Sharks: What Went Wrong?

As most people know by now, the San Jose Sharks have officially missed the playoffs for the first time since 2002-2003. They lost to the Dallas Stars by a final of 5-1 on Monday night, but their fate was out of their hands perhaps all along. When the Winnipeg Jets defeated the Minnesota Wild, the […]

The Minnesota Wild Could Win the Stanley Cup

The Minnesota Wild could win the Stanley Cup. It’s an interesting statement to make, but it’s certainly true – just as it’s true for quite a few teams in, on or around the bubble. But the Minnesota Wild really could win the Cup this year. It’s been an interesting year in St. Paul. The Wild […]

A Tale of Two Cities: Calgary Blasts Edmonton on Saturday Night

It’s tempting to continue to harp on the Edmonton Oilers, especially after they took another significant loss on Saturday night to the Calgary Flames. The 4-0 victory for Alberta’s more effective franchise ensures that they remain in the playoff hunt and pegs them down at third in the Pacific Division. Even so, it wasn’t an […]

The Sad Tale of the 2014-2015 Edmonton Oilers

It’s hard to imagine a sadder NHL team in the 2014-2015 season than the Edmonton Oilers. Sure, the Buffalo Sabres and the Arizona Coyotes are also in the running for the league’s basement. The Sabres are 22-48-8, while the Coyotes sit with a 23-47-8 record. The Oilers, meanwhile, boast a 23-42-13 record. The issue with […]

Dustin Byfuglien Suspended Four Games

Winnipeg Jets defenceman/forward Dustin Byfuglien has been suspended four games by the NHL for his crosscheck to New York Rangers forward J.T. Miller on Tuesday night. The incident took place in the second period, with Miller prone after trying to jam the loose puck into the net. Byfuglien delivers a cross-check to the back of […]

Alex Ovechkin Hits 50 Goals Again

Alex Ovechkin has joined the likes of Mike Bossy, Wayne Gretzky, Marcel Dionne, Guy Lafleur, and Mario Lemieux by hitting the 50 goal mark once more. This is his sixth 50 goal season in 10 seasons and that puts him in some fine company, to say the least. Bossy and Gretzky had nine 50 goal […]

Tampa Owns Montreal Again, Clinches Playoff Berth

The Tampa Bay Lightning are the latest team to secure a playoff berth and they should be fun to watch in the post-season for a number of reasons. Tampa took down the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night to safeguard their chance at the Cup, defeating the Habs by a final score of 5-3 and running […]
