    While Alex Ovechkin’s season may seem quiet to this point, last night against Calgary, Ovechkin made his presence felt and felt quickly scoring two goals in the span of 12 seconds. If these goals were in the rodeo, he’d be breaking records for bull riding or something equally as punny. Hey, at least it’s not…

    Part of what made last night’s 7-2 Calgary loss to Washington so hard was seeing how Calgary couldn’t stop just Washington from scoring on them but they also couldn’t stop themselves from scoring on Miikka Kiprusoff. Take, defenseman Cory Sarich, who in an effort to get the puck away from his goalie ended up putting…

During last night’s 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings, Parise ended up leaving the game early and did not play in the third period. Parise is listed as…

    Colorado’s Chris Stewart has to do what he can to keep up with his brother Anthony in Atlanta.

    Bruins goalie Tim Thomas is having himself quite the comeback season. After shutting out the Maple Leafs 2-0 tonight, Thomas’ goals against average fell to a hysterically low 0.60 with an equally insane save percentage of .981.
