    While the Colorado Avalanche didn’t fare too well getting shutdown by the Vancouver Canucks 3-1, they did have at least one bright spot last night with goaltender Peter Budaj making an incredible diving stick save to stop Mason Raymond from wrapping around for an easy goal. The Avs will need more of that kind of…

    While the Rangers were busy rolling over dead all night, the Flyers were more than happy to go wild at their expense. Doing their job to do things crazy was the combo of Claude Giroux and Mike Richards to rip one past Henrik Lundqvist. This one is equally impressive for both Giroux’s 180-degree spin to…

    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…
