    Is there a chance we’ll see Philadelphia’s Mike Richards and Montreal’s P.K. Subban have a war of words and fists tonight in Philadelphia? If you’re a fan of blood wars on ice, you might want to fulfill your blood lust somewhere else. In case you’ve forgotten what happened last week, after the Canadiens beat the…

After netting a hat trick against Chicago on Friday night, the real Jarome Iginla could very…

    Colin Campbell

    While we’ve heard plenty from NHL executives and media alike about how stand up a guy Colin Campbell is, the one faction we haven’t heard from are the NHL players who are affected by his decisions on suspensions. Anthony San Filippo of the Delaware County Daily Times near Philadelphia conducted a poll of 30 players…

    When you think of the skilled scorers on the Flyers roster, your mind likely floats to names like Daniel Briere, Mike Richards, Jeff Carter, or Claude Giroux. Those are all the names that would likely rush to your mind if you were to think about a player on the Flyers roster that would produce a…

    5:00 pm NY Islanders @ Atlanta Oh, the Islanders.

    Tim Thomas, Dwight King

    Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins has been one heck of a story this year in the NHL. He’s got four shutouts this year and is a leading candidate to be the comeback player of the year after struggling most of last season with a mix of ineffective play and a wonky hip he had…

    If you’ve not been paying attention at all, Rick Nash of the Columbus Blue Jackets is a pretty good player. I know you might forget about him because he plays in Columbus but even if you haven’t read about him here on this site, you’re about to see some more of him in action. In…

    We’re hoping this doesn’t become a regular segment, but we won’t lie if we told you we’d be fully entertained if it ended up becoming one. A few nights ago we saw St. Louis’ Jaroslav Halak find a way to help the Detroit Red Wings score by serving up a goal into his own net.…

    This hockey homecoming might not quite land on your radar, but expect Marian Gaborik’s return to Minnesota to be an interesting one. Gaborik spent the first eight seasons of his career with the Minnesota Wild. In that time, when he was healthy, he was the one dynamic offensive presence the Wild could count upon when…

    The Bruins are getting closer to having their full lineup back in action and that’s bad news for the rest of the league.

    Sabres captain Craig Rivet has had a bit of a rough go lately. He’s missed time this season with a throat contusion he suffered on the first day of training camp.

    In a game that featured 15 goals in all, you’d think this would make for a game with a likely selection for the goal of the night. You’d be right because in the wild first period that saw the Flyers and Lightning combine for nine goals in all, the goal of the night comes from…
