  1. Kurtis Foster's infant daughter passes away

    May 20, 2010, 11:00 AM EST

    Some extremely sad news this morning as we learn that Kurtis Foster’s infant daughter has passed away. She was just five days old. Foster is a finalist for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, after he returned from a horrific leg injury to post 42 points in 71 games as a defenseman for the Tampa Bay…

  2. Playing in Montreal "special" for Gagne, Briere

    May 19, 2010, 4:53 PM EST

    Comments Off

    Don’t expect a warm welcome for Danny Briere ad Simon Gagne in Montreal just because they are locals. In fact, knowing Habs fans, it’s likely that Briere and Gagne get a more “enthusiastic” response than anyone on the Flyers. Yet for these two players, getting a chance to play in Montreal is special enough. Per…

  3. What's missing from this San Jose Sharks team? Heart.

    May 19, 2010, 4:00 PM EST

    If there’s one thing we can count on every postseason, it’s the endless supply of articles that rip the San Jose Sharks to shreds for yet another playoffs disappointment. This year, I had hopes that perhaps we could avoid all that — as fun as it may be — and even if the Chicago Blackhawks…

    The IIHF World Championships, held every summer (during the NHL playoffs) that is supposed to feature the top talent from around the world. Usually that’s the case, except when the players that are invited are still in the playoffs or have some sort of injury that prevents them from playing. This season, a number of…

  5. Randy Sexton a fan of the Dale Tallon hiring

    May 19, 2010, 1:46 PM EST

    Comments Off

    It’s happened a few times the past few years and Randy Sexton would like to see it again. Departed general managers have lately had a tendency to stick with the team that is replacing them, and Sexton would welcome the same opportunity after the Florida Panthers hired Dale Tallon in his place. From an AP…

  6. Jonathan Toews shining, on defense and offense

    May 19, 2010, 11:00 AM EST

    Comments Off

    When the 2010 Selke Trophy  finalists were announced — Pavel Datsyuk, Jordan Staal and Ryan Kesler — many felt that the one player who was shorted the most was Jonathan Toews. A lot of the focus on the Blackhawks is on their stellar blue line and their high-powered offense, but one big key to their…

  8. Sharks come unglued with 4-2 loss to Blackhawks

    May 19, 2010, 12:22 AM EST

    San Jose Sharks 2, Chicago Blackhawks 4 Blackhawks lead series 2-0 How do you judge this series so far? Is this the San Jose Sharks choking? This is two straight losses at home, with a clear path to the Stanley Cup finals after reaching the previously-hallowed ground of the conference finals. Or is this just…

  9. Mike Cammalleri: "I don't really feel frustrated."

    May 18, 2010, 11:00 PM EST

    Brian Compton of NHL.com has some Mike Cammalleri quotes from after the Canadiens’ loss to the Flyers, and if the rest of the Habs share his outlook you wonder if this team needs to adopt a bit more of a killer instinct. Overall, the leading scorer of the Canadiens doesn’t seem too concerned with his…

  10. Halak, Canadiens stumble in 3-0 loss to Flyers

    May 18, 2010, 9:45 PM EST

    Final – Philadelphia Flyers 3, Montreal Canadiens 0 Flyers lead series 2-0 I know that a lot of attention now is going to turn on Jaroslav Halak, and how his struggles are costing the Canadiens after his heroics got them to this point. While Halak has certainly looked far from the goaltender we saw in…

  11. Blackhawks chasing NHL playoffs record

    May 18, 2010, 9:30 PM EST

    Comments Off

    I’m sure this record isn’t exactly at the top of their list of “things to do on the way to the Stanley Cup” but the Blackhawks are a win tonight away from tying an NHL postseason record with seven straight road wins. It’s been a staple of their playoff success this season, with six of…

    Philadelphia Flyers 2, Montreal Canadiens 0 Flyers lead series 1-0 After being embarrassed in Game 1, one thing the Montreal Canadiens vowed to do tonight was to come out with energy and purpose, hoping to stun the Flyers with an early onslaught. That’s exactly what they did. They controlled played in the first and through…

  13. San Jose not the typical southern hockey market

    May 18, 2010, 8:00 PM EST

    Since I grew up learning and loving hockey in Dallas, I am someone who firmly believes that hockey is a sport that can work anywhere. It doesn’t matter if it’s in Michigan or Mississippi, if the team is successful and marketed right the fans will come and these issues facing “hockey in the south” are…

  14. Patrick Kane claims everything is fine

    Seeing the mullet struggle a bit to get off the ice at the end of the second period against the Sharks sent a collective gasp among Hawks fans. Losing Patrick Kane for any amount of time would not exactly spell instant disaster for Chicago, but it certainly would cause some issues for a team hoping…

    May 16, 2010, 4:00 PM EST

    San Jose Sharks 1, Chicago Blackhawks 0 Series tied 0-0 The Chicago Blackhawks should thank their butts for Antti Niemi this afternoon, as their goaltender was the reason they went into the first period down by just a goal. The Sharks unleashed 13 shots on goal in the first 20 minutes, spread across three power…

  17. 2010 NHL playoffs: Conference finals predictions

    May 16, 2010, 2:00 PM EST

    Comments Off

    We’ve already proven just how useless making predictions in the playoffs can be, but since we’re gluttons for punishment we thought we’d go ahead and keep at it anyway. That the conference finals are so evenly matched for each series will likely mean that we’re nowhere close on our predictions, but here they are nonetheless.…

    There’s no doubt that this has been one of the most amazing hockey playoff seasons we’ve had in a very long time. Forget the multiple Game 7 dramas, or the absolute upsets of the Penguins and the Capitals. You could even overlook the history that was made last night in Pittsburgh, and you would still…

  22. Flyers vs. Canadiens: Who's the favorite?

    We only have one day to dwell on the big series win by the Philadelphia Flyers, one that has seemingly overwhelmed the incredible win by the Montreal Canadiens over the Pittsburgh Penguins. While the Flyers ousting the Bruins wasn’t exactly unexpected — although coming back from down 0-3 was — the Habs taking out both…
