    Atlanta Thrashers v New York Rangers

    The NHL’s ad campaign this year stressed that “questions will be answered” and tonight was loaded with questions. Could the Rangers stay hot? Could Steven Stamkos continue scoring points like Gretzky? Could the Devils get things turned around? Could the Hurricanes remember where the heck their home arena was? All these questions were answered tonight,…

    God bless America. James Engquist could stand to cash in on getting grabbed by Canucks forward Rick Rypien by just filing a lawsuit.

    Philadelphia Flyers v Pittsburgh Penguins

    By now, we all understand that paying up to go see a game in just about any professional sport is going to cost us a lot of money. The NHL is no different than any other league, except for that pesky promise that was made after the 2004-2005 lockout to help make the game more…

    You’d have to think that getting your nose broken would be a pretty standard injury in the NHL. Pucks are flying around, sticks get lifted, punches get thrown. These are all perils for your nose on the ice. It still hurts just the same, however, and for Anaheim Ducks forward Dan Sexton, a shot from…

    Kings fans can breathe a little easier today. Last night Kings captain Dustin Brown was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for a head shot on Wild forward Antti Miettinen.

    The Bruins’ season is off to a great start and the upside for them now is that they’ll be getting key reinforcements back. They’re 4-2-0 to start the season and things are clicking pretty well without offensive studs Marc Savard and Marco Sturm. The good news for them today is that both Savard and Sturm…

    Andrei Kostitsyn’s Montreal Canadiens career has been, to this point, a bit controversial and over-dramatic. So far this year, however, everything has been forgiven. Kostitsyn’s fifth goal of the year last night sent the Montreal fans home abundantly happy and excited to have another goal scoring threat as he scored in overtime beating Coyotes goaltender…
