    We’ve lauded Carey Price enough here lately for his efforts in a losing game, but someone had to score on him, right? Well, three different Blue Jackets did in their 3-0 win over Montreal and the goal that Jakub Voracek and Derick Brassard teamed up on was a true beauty. What starts with Voracek’s rush…

    While the Columbus Blue Jackets were able to shutout the Montreal Canadiens last night 3-0 in a mostly lifeless effort by the Habs, there was one guy who showed up in a big way for Montreal. Goaltender Carey Price did his part to try and keep his team in the game, highlighted by this series…

    Funny how things work out some nights. The Canucks have the Sedin twins, just got Alex Burrows back in the lineup and they’re facing an Oilers team that can be tricky. It’s also an Oilers team that Raffi Torres used to play for. Don’t suppose that was motivation for him to get it together tonight…

    The enforcers community in the NHL is generally one built upon respect for other enforcers since they know how hard one another’s job is in the league. After all, playing the role of public defender of your teammates on the ice and designated brawler with other enforcers is a tough job despite not logging a…

    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…

  22. True goalie horror: Calgary’s Cory Sarich scores into his own goal

    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…
