    Colorado’s Chris Stewart has to do what he can to keep up with his brother Anthony in Atlanta. While Anthony scored a hat trick last week for the Thrashers, leave it to Chris to match him goal-for-goal tonight against the Flames and goalie Henrik Karlsson in helping the Avalanche knock of Calgary 6-5.

    It might not be a goal, and Brad Richards of the Dallas Stars might not be known for being a heavy-handed shooter but Richards isn’t just shattering preconceived notions, he’s shattering the glass in impressive fashion. Check out the big shot by Richards from center ice against the Kings last night that rips a hole…

    We’re keeping a stray eye on attendance numbers around some places in the NHL, and couple of games tonight stood out more than others. In Dallas, the Stars announced a paid attendance of 11,306 at American Airlines Center for the Stars 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings, a new low since moving to Dallas.…

    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. If you thought Tuukka Rask was going to run away with the starting job this season in Boston,…

  7. Is Patrick Kane in coach Joel Quenneville’s doghouse?

    Oct 29, 2010, 12:13 AM EDT

    Vancouver Canucks v Chicago Blackhawks

    Could Patrick Kane be in the doghouse in Chicago or is head coach Joel Quenneville just looking for a little bit more out of the Blackhawks superstar?

    It took eight games, but the #1 pick from the 2010 NHL draft finally has his first NHL goal. Taylor Hall gets his first goal thanks to a tip in front of Steve Mason off a Theo Peckham shot. Expect it to be the first of many in Hall’s career with the Edmonton Oilers.

    Do NHL coaches want to have the ability to challenge calls on the ice to be replayed? You might be surprised at the results of an informal poll.

    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,…

  12. How much could the “victim” of Rick Rypien’s “assault” get in court? How about $30,000

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

    You might recall a while back when we told you about how hockey coach and noted sexual predator, and tormentor of former NHLers Theoren Fleury and Sheldon Kennedy, Graham James was being pursued by Winnipeg police once again concerning allegations that were brought against him by Fleury. As it turns out, James has turned himself…

    If you’ve been wondering about whether or not the NHL and the NHL officials have gotten their act together over whether or not to approve their new four-year Collective Bargaining Agreement, you can wonder no more. The NHL Board of Governors and the NHL Officials Association today ratified the four-year agreement. The NHL issued these…

    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. With the NHL’s new rule regarding reckless and blindside blows to the head, Brown’s seemingly tough hit on Miettinen could’ve been cited for…

    Whether he’s in the NHL or the AHL, Sheldon Souray can’t help but show that he’s still capable of making really bad decisions.

    Peter Chiarelli

    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…

    If you’re wondering if the NHL’s new rule about punishing head shots is working or not, you can worry no more. Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for delivering a shot to the head of prone Minnesota Wild forward Antti Miettinen. Miettinen wasn’t injured on the play…
