    May 15, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    After all of the “too many men” penalties we’ve seen in the playoffs, it was inevitable that one would occur in historic fashion. The Boston Bruins were trying their best to fight off the Flyers in the third period of Game 7, having already given up a 3-0 lead and were close to finishing off…

  4. Magical comeback for Flyers far from surprising

    May 14, 2010, 10:45 PM EDT

    As soon as James van Riemsdyk’s partially-blocked wrist shot inexplicably found it’s way past Tuukka Rask, you could just feel that this was something the Flyers could pull off. That was the goal they needed; something, anything positive in a first period that was everything the Flyers didn’t want in a crucial Game 7. Too…

  6. Roberto Luongo pleased with playoffs performance

    May 14, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

    Jason Botchford has a defiant article up today for The Province, slamming those who chose to rip apart Roberto Luongo after yet another disappointing postseason. While there are many parts of his article I don’t necessarily agree with, there is one thing I can understand his point about: there’s been so much ripping on Luongo…

  7. Lightning cover Stephane Veilleux surgery costs

    May 14, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It was close to becoming an incredible sour dispute over what is essentially a miniscule price for an NHL, when the Tampa Bay Lightning initially refused to cover the surgery costs for pending free agent Stephane Veilleux. The team had claimed that since his injury could not be proven to be directly related to hockey,…

    Comments Off

    According to Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Atlanta Thrashers have three potential investors interested in becoming part of the Atlanta Spirit, the company that owns the Hawks and the Thrashers.

  10. Wellwood hoping Canucks want him back

    May 14, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Perhaps having Kyle Wellwood and Shane O’Brien on the same team for the next few seasons might not be the best course of action for the Vancouver Canucks. Two underachieving players with weight issues, living in Vancouver, is likely too much for the team to have to continue to deal with. With O’Brien facing restricted…

  11. Shane O'Brien hopes to stay in Vancouver

    May 14, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Shane O’Brien is an enigma. At times capable of inspiring shut-down defense while at other times letting his emotions take control and putting himself and his teammates in some bad situations. When the coaches came down on him in the series against the Kings for being perhaps a bit too agitating, he responded with some…

    Comments Off

    Brian Campbell will be making an extended return to the home of the San Jose Sharks over the next two weeks, but this time he’s not worried about the reception he’ll receive from the fans. “I didn’t like it my first time back,” Campbell told David Pollack of the San Jose Mercury-News, but this time…

Daoust has was once part of the Pittsburgh Penguins system, before signing as a free agent with the Houston Aeros of the AHL. The 26-year old  was the…

  14. Don't forget about the Philadelphia Flyers

    May 13, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    What the Montreal Canadiens have been able to do so far in the playoffs is certainly tremendous. They’re the eighth seed in the East and have taken out the two darlings of the NHL, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals. No more Sid. No more Ovi. All thanks to the Canadiens. But we can’t…

  15. Penguins loss not just Crosby and Malkin's fault

    May 13, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    David Staples of the Edmonton Journal has a great post up this morning, on how the little moves made by GM Bob Gainey have certainly paid off this postseason. While many teams went after the big name acquisitions (and only Dany Heatley’s trade has truly paid off for the Sharks), the Canadiens decided to instead…

  16. Sharks focused on Toews, Kane and Byfuglien

    At first it was thought to be just a shoulder injury, but now we learn that Steven Stamkos will miss at least one game of the IIHF World Hockey Championships with a possible concussion. From Sportsnet: “I think it’s just a protocol that you follow when someone has the symptoms that he had,” said Canadian…

  18. 2010 NHL Playoffs: Michael Leighton, Jaroslav Halak highlights

    May 13, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    For some reason, there were many people down on Micheal Leighton heading into Game 6, but it’s important to remember that he was going to be their goaltender for the playoffs before his injury. Sure, there some consternation that this was his first game back (although he was great in relief in Game 5) but…

  19. 2010 NHL playoffs: Goal(s) of the Night

    May 13, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    First up, we have Dominic Moore giving the Canadiens a lead they’d never relinquish. While this ultimately wasn’t the winning goal, it served to stun the Penguins and the home crowd. Then we have Danny Briere, who was once one of the more frustrating players on the Flyers, scoring his sixth goal in eight games.

  20. Crosby and Penguins need to put frustrations aside

    May 12, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    I’ve written before how Sidney Crosby’s obvious frustration was a good sign for the Canadiens, and as the series has worn on you’re seeing that frustration more and more. Crosby was able to get his first goal of the series in Game 6, although he was held to just three shots in the game and…

  21. Ponikarovsky in tonight vs. the Canadiens?

    May 12, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Another roster update for tonight’s big game between the Montreal Canadiens and the Pittsburgh Penguins, as it seems as though Alexei Ponikarovsky might be back in the lineup for the Penguins after being a healthy scratch the past two games. The Penguins have had trouble getting scoring from their secondary wingers, so inserting Ponikarovsky would…

  22. Claude Giroux to play tonight vs. Bruins

    May 12, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    As we gear up for a couple of big games tonight,, much of the news has to do the various injuries the teams are dealing with. Well, here’s more. Claude Giroux, who left Monday’s game against the Bruins with an injured left shoulder, will play tonight although he is still not completely healthy. It’s just…

  23. Hal Gill likely to play in Game 7

    May 12, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Montreal Canadiens were able to get by without Hal Gill in Game 6, but asking the team to have the same success two games in a row would be a difficult task. Gill has been instrumental in shutting down Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, and having him back for Game 7 will be an…

  24. Mike Cammalleri: "The pressure is on them."

    May 12, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Montreal Canadiens have been here before. Just two weeks ago, they went on the road for a Game 7 against what many consider a much more talented team, overcoming all odds to take out the top-seeded NHL team after being down 3-1 in the series. Now the Habs will have to do it again,…
