    Comments Off

    Boston Bruins 0, Philadelphia Flyers 4 Bruins lead series 3-2 The Flyers needed overtime to stay alive in their series against the Bruins in Game 4, but they would need just one goal and and a solid overall effort to send the series back to Philadelphia for a Game 6.

  2. Hartnell, Leino spark Flyers for 3-0 lead

    May 10, 2010, 8:50 PM EST

    Comments Off

    After Brian Boucher left the game a bit over 4 minutes in the second period and the Flyers protecting a 1-0 lead, you would think the Bruins would amp up their play and take advantage of a goaltender who hasn’t seen the ice since the middle of March. Instead, we witnessed the Flyers press the…

    May 10, 2010, 8:32 PM EST

    Comments Off

    At some point, the Montreal Canadiens had to take advantage of their home ice atmosphere. The Bell Centre is perhaps the most electric and loudest arena in the NHL, and so far in the playoffs the Habs have had trouble playing their best at home. With Mike Cammalleri leading the way in yet another elimination…

    With the Flyers leading the Bruins 1-0 in the second period, goaltender Brian Boucher was at the bottom of a pile up in his crease when Ryan Parent appeared to fall on his left leg. He was down in pain as it looked like his leg was twisted/crushed under Parent, and he was forced to…

  6. Update: Sami Salo's boys are intact

    May 10, 2010, 5:14 AM EST

    Comments Off

    Good news, as we learn that previous reports that Salo had a ruptured testicle were a bit premature. Contrary to previous TSN reports, Salo is intact and his testicles are just fine. I hope to never have to write a sentence like that again. It had been reported that Salo was taken to the hospital…

  7. Sami Salo may have ruptured testicle

    May 9, 2010, 11:17 PM EST

    There are several reports floating around, and it’s been mentioned on TSN, that Sami Salo may have suffered from a ruptured testicle when he was hit with a puck late in the first period. I’ll wait for you to get back up off the floor before continuing…. Seeing how Salo reacted to the shot, the…

    May 9, 2010, 8:45 PM EST

    Comments Off

    Now that the Detroit Red Wings are out of the playoffs, so begins the endless debate and hand wringing over the decision that Nicklas Lidstrom must make this summer on whether to retire from the NHL or not.

  11. Bertuzzi: The matchups don't matter

    May 8, 2010, 9:22 PM EST

    As the Red Wings get ready to once again avoid elimination tonight against San Jose, the coaches are thinking about the matchups they’ll be looking for in the neverending chess match that takes place in a series. So far, the home teams (as expected) have been able to come out on top in these battles,…

  12. Luongo, O'Brien losing touch with reality

    May 8, 2010, 7:00 PM EST

    Instead of taking responsibility for his own play in net, Roberto Luongo is looking instead to change his luck. The playoff beard is gone, obviously the cause for his troubles in the second round against the Chicago Blackhawks. The goaltender says he’s “trying to change things up a bit” as the Canucks hope to stave…

    May 6, 2010, 4:00 PM EST

    Comments Off

    Amazingly, the Monteal Canadiens haven’t played all that well at home in front of their enthusiastic home crowd, something that will certain have to change if the Habs hope to avoid slipping into another 3-1 series deficit. For some reason the Candiens have yet to take advantage of the energy generated by their home crowd,…

  14. Staal says he wants to play

    May 6, 2010, 3:14 PM EST

    Comments Off

    He’s still going to be a game-time decision, but if Staal had his way he’d be playing tonight against the Canadiens. Per Chris Stevenson: “We’re talking to the doctors and we’re talking to Jordan. It’s about being comfortable in the (skate) boot. There can’t be any damage to the procedure. it’s about getting comfortable with…

  19. Tom Hicks on sports: "This isn't my life"

    May 6, 2010, 12:05 PM EST

    Tom Hicks has gone from one of the best owners in the NHL, one who was able to inexplicably make hockey a viable sport in North Texas, to one that many wish would just go away as quickly and as quietly as possible. That’s not going to happen, it seems. Hicks purchased the Dallas Stars…

  20. Are the Red Wings wearing down?

    May 6, 2010, 11:15 AM EST

    The Red Wings have played a ton of hockey the past three years and despite what some Red Wings fans may admit, they are a bit of an older team. Combine all of the hockey played by the team and the Olympic hockey that most of the Red Wings’ players played, there’s no doubt that…

    May 6, 2010, 10:30 AM EST

    Jordan Staal and Bill Guerin are both likely to be game-time decisions tonight against the Montreal Canadiens, although it appears that Staal is much closer to returning.  When he does return, he’ll use the same skates he was wearing when he was was cut by P.K Subban’s skate blade, which he says makes skating much…

    Comments Off

    Jimmy Howard hasn’t exactly played lights out for the Red Wings in the second round, allowing four goals in each of three losses to the Sharks. Yet he’s far from the reason the Sharks are ahead in this series 3-0 and the Red Wings are going to stick with their goaltender even while facing elimination.…
