    If you’re not familiar with the Hobey Baker Award in college hockey, it’s their version of the college football Heisman Trophy.  In a race between Maine’s Gustav Nyqvist, New Hampshire’s Bobby Butler and Wisconsin’s Blake Geoffrion, it was Geoffrion coming away with college hockey’s top individual prize, the first player in Wisconsin’s history to do…

  5. North Dakota Fighting Sioux no more

    Apr 9, 2010, 5:35 PM EDT

    The North Dakota Fighting Sioux will be no more.

    Comments Off

    The Wisconsin Badgers are headed to the National Championship game on the strength of defense, patience, offensive skill and some brutal frustration from the RIT Tigers as Wisconsin took out RIT 8-1 in the first semifinal game of the 2010 Frozen Four. Wisconsin took the steam out of RIT almost immediately as John Mitchell scored…

  8. Frozen Four preview

    Apr 8, 2010, 9:15 AM EDT

    When last we left you two weeks ago, we were wondering how East Region #4 seed RIT  managed to blow through to the semis like it was no big deal while the other three top seeds (Boston College, Wisconsin, and Miami) powered through their regions to reach the Frozen Four at Ford Field in Detroit.…

  12. Keith Ballard's own goal

    Apr 6, 2010, 11:32 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Panthers defenseman Keith Ballard must really have it out for his goaltender Thomas Vokoun.  Earlier this year he cracked Vokoun in the head with his stick after allowing a bad goal. Tonight he’s added another gaffe to the “My Bad” pile. At this rate Ballard probably owes Vokoun a dinner or twelve and having this…

    Comments Off

    Not that you needed to know just how good Martin Brodeur is, but with New Jersey’s 3-0 win over Atlanta tonight, he not only notches his 110th shutout but also his 600th victory in the NHL.  The 600 mark is all the more impressive because he’s the only goalie to ever reach that mark and…

    James has been kind enough to hand over his baby boy project to me. No, not his affinity for Sidney Crosby, some powerful folks might get angry about that turf being encroached upon. Instead it’s time to Vote for Bertuzzday.  First things first, the previous four winners: 1. Matt Cooke 2. Alex Ovechkin 3. Rocky…

    Comments Off

    The words “playoffs” and “Los Angeles Kings” haven’t gone together in a few years (since 2001-2002 to be exact) so you’ll have to forgive head coach Terry Murray if being asked about how to prepare for the playoffs is a bit new to him as it’s his first time back there since he took the…

    The Phil Kessel trade to the Maple Leafs from Boston has been a heated topic of debate for both teams all season long. You’ve got Bruins fans insisting they didn’t need Kessel to win games ranging to Leafs fans saying they don’t care about the first round pick the team gave up to get him.…

    I generally don’t like being the melodramatic type, but today is a pretty huge day for playoff jockeying. I’m not going to go off the deep end and call it an “epic” day, but there’s a lot of things that can get squared away in both conferences. Things get started early this afternoon for the…

  24. Avalanche Playoff Hopes Under Fire

    Apr 1, 2010, 12:25 AM EDT

    The Colorado Avalanche have been the surprise of the NHL for most of this season.  With a young roster, a first-year head coach and a goaltender getting his first crack at being a full-time starter there weren’t a lot of reasons to be hopeful for the Avs this season. Of course this is why they…
