Good news and bad news for the Red Wings as they get Johan Franzen back to action, but lose Kris Draper.
Oct 20, 2010, 4:20 PM EDT
If anything else, last night proved that even in a light night of action that anything can happen. Four more games hit the schedule tonight so let’s just hope that if anyone is hitting someone else that it all happens on the ice so we can avoid anything more unseemly to discuss further. As always,…

The NHL has handed down at least their initial word about how they’re going to handle things with Vancouver forward Rick Rypien and his grabby hands towards a Minnesota fan.

SO it was a bad night for the Canucks losing to the Minnesota Wild 6-2, but they at least had a lead for a little while as Henrik Sedin connected with his brother Daniel on this beauty of a pass to put the Canucks up 1-0 less than a minute into the game. The lead…

Flames goalie Miikka Kiprusoff was stellar in his 34-save shutout of the Nashville Predators, and his stop in the second period was perhaps the best of the bunch.

Canucks forward Rick Rypien has the support of his teammates after going after a fan in Minnesota, but that’s about all he’ll get as he’s looking at getting a stiff suspension from the NHL. But just how many games? We have a stab in the dark.

Here’s your Cliff’s Notes of Tuesday nights light night in the NHL.

When former Blackhawks GM Dale Tallon was replaced by Stan Bowman, the team he built to become last year’s Stanley Cup champion did right by him and made sure to reward the man who helped put together most of the roster that won it all. Today, it all came to fruition as Tallon received his…

In the second period of tonight’s Vancouver Canucks game against the Minnesota Wild in St. Paul, Minnesota, Canucks agitator/fighting forward Rick Rypien lost his head a bit. OK, he lost his head a lot as Rypien apparently went into the stands and grabbed a fan as he was headed towards the locker room. Michael Russo…

While we know the stretch of the NHL to reach all parts of the globe is ever expanding, the limits of exactly where it can go are starting to reach even further than you could believe. Sure, the NHL has started their season in Europe and Japan in the past, but how about reaching out…

Thrashers goalie Ondrej Pavelec returned to the ice today in practice. It was Pavelec’s first time back to action after fainting mid-game on opening night and suffering a concussion when his head hit the ice.

Turns out Shane Doan wasn’t the only one making noise today regarding shots to the head. This time, Oilers defenseman Tom Gilbert was fined $2,500 for a head shot delivered to Flames forward Matt Stajan. Gilbert was penalized for interference on the play which earned him a review of the hit by the league. The…

The Carolina Hurricanes start to the year has taken them across half the globe. They began the season playing in Europe, doing exhibition games in Russia and then opening the season against the Wild playing two games in Helsinki, Finland. Since coming back to North America, they’ve gone from Ottawa across to the west coast…
Oct 18, 2010, 4:39 PM EDT
Shane Doan was suspended for three games by the NHL. It’s a good first step for the NHL to show they’re serious about cutting down illegal head shots, but it’s just the first step towards improvement.

Rangers playmaking forward Vinny Prospal underwent knee surgery today and the Rangers announced that he’ll be out for 6-8 weeks. Prospal’s injury status has been a bit murky lately, leading to speculation that Prospal could miss a significant amount of time this season and put his career in jeopardy. Instead, there’s a timetable squared away…

Do not adjust your eyes, those goalie pads are, indeed, pink and they’re for a good cause too.
Oct 18, 2010, 12:52 PM EDT
Finally there’s more good news for ailing Thrashers goalie Ondrej Pavelec. After Pavelec’s scary fainting spell during the Thrashers first game of the season and subsequent concussion from his fall, he’s been off the ice and not playing as he recovers. Now, according to the Blueland Blog, he’s been medically cleared to start practicing so…

It’s awfully early to go looking ahead towards the off-season at who is going to be an unrestricted free agent, but one of the players that figures to get a lot of attention then if he’s available is Stars forward Brad Richards. Richards is one of the best set-up men in the league, perpetually at…
