  1. Chicago looking forward to Vancouver's Green Men

    May 5, 2010, 5:30 PM EST

    The Green Men, who have gained national notoriety for their antics outside the penalty box in Vancouver, will be on hand again in an attempt to agitate any Blackhawks player who makes their way to the sin bin. While we haven’t seen much actual response from the players in the box, it will be interesting…

  2. "Too many men" for Sharks not a big deal

    May 5, 2010, 4:45 PM EST

    There’s a screencap making the rounds today that shows seven men on the ice for the Sharks at the moment when Patrick Marleau was scoring the winning goal in overtime last night against the Detroit Red Wings. Here’s a link to the screencap, courtesy of Greg Wyshynski. What it shows is two Sharks players looking…

    May 5, 2010, 4:15 PM EST

    Comments Off

    A lot of the attention in the series between the Flyers and Bruins has been on the growing animosity between Dan Carcillo and Marc Savard. Yet in any long series there are other matchups and battles that become more intriguing each game, and currently we have one that’s building between Patrice Bergeron and Mike Richards…

  4. Olli Jokinen to the KHL?

    May 5, 2010, 3:30 PM EST

    Alessandro Rosso, a blogger and reporter covering Russian hockey for Hockey’s Future (among others) has tweeted today that Olli Jokinen will sign with Dinamo Minsk of the KHL. What’s interesting is that Jokinen isn’t exactly a Russian player headed back to play in his home country, but a talented European player that has decided against…

  5. More lineup changes for Chicago

    May 5, 2010, 3:08 PM EST

    Comments Off

    Joel Quenneville made a couple of subtle but effective lineup changes for Game 2, as the Hawks evened up the series against the Canucks behind a more aggressive and physical approach. With Chicago wanting to keep that momentum and hopefully build upon it, it seems one more could be on the way. Troy Brouwer hasn’t…

  6. Staal practices, closer to returning

    May 5, 2010, 2:15 PM EST

    Jordan Staal may not play in Game 4 tomorrow in Montreal, but he’s getting ever closer to doing what many (including myself) would be impossible and returning in time to face the Canadiens in the second round. Staal was initially thought to be out for the playoffs when it was reported he had surgery to…

  7. Savard not phased by Carcillo's chatter

    May 5, 2010, 1:30 PM EST

    You knew there was going to be some fireworks between the Flyers and Bruins. It was inevitable. I never would have guessed that Marc Savard would be at the center of it. As the series heads back to Philadelphia Dan Carcillo is vowing to keep the pressure on Savard, aiming to match up with him…

  8. These aren't the Sharks of years past

    May 5, 2010, 12:45 PM EST

    Comments Off

    Well, these certainly aren’t the San Jose Sharks we were all laughing at after Dan Boyle’s own goal doomed them in overtime in the first round. Since then, they’ve become a much more well-rounded, balanced, confident and dangerous team. After last night’s big comeback win, the Sharks are now just one win away from the…

  9. O'Brien vows Canucks will be more aggressive

    May 5, 2010, 11:57 AM EST

    While Shane O’Brien has certainly been the brunt of a number of jokes lately, he’s been able to step up and become one of the vocal leaders on the team in the playoffs. The coaches weren’t too pleased with some of his antics against the Kings, so he toned down his emotions and started playing…

  10. Capitals upset they let the city down

    May 5, 2010, 11:15 AM EST

    You could see it on the faces of the players, coaches and fans. After the Game 7 loss to the Canadiens it wasn’t just disappointment the team and fans felt, it was utter dejection. The Washington D.C. area hasn’t had that great of a time in the sports world lately, and the local fans had…

  12. Video: Two reviewed goals in Detroit

    May 5, 2010, 9:45 AM EST

    Comments Off

    In last night’s Detroit and San Jose game, there were not one but two Red Wings goals reviewed in the first period. I was away from the computer while the game was played live so I was unable to get instant live reaction from Red Wings fans. I think even the most staunch of Red…

  14. Babcock: Red Wings must stay out of penalty box

    May 4, 2010, 3:15 PM EST

    Comments Off

    Mike Babcock’s key for the Red Wings to climbing back in the series against the San Jose Sharks? Avoid going to the penalty box, of course. Which is easier said than done when your team is the target of an obvious conspricacy (said with complete sarcasm, by the way.) Per Chris McCosky of The Detroit…

  15. Crosby welcomed by Montreal fans, for now

    May 4, 2010, 2:15 PM EST

    The adoring hockey fans of Montreal put aside their temporary dislike for Sidney Crosby today as the Canadien Press reports a throng of adoring fans lining up for his autograph outside the team’s hotel today to get his autograph. Sure, he’s the most loved player in Canada right now (I think) but I’m guessing he’s…

  16. Is Henrik Sedin hurt?

    May 4, 2010, 1:30 PM EST

    Comments Off

    How about some speculating on some speculation? Tony Gallagher of The Province asks today whether Henrik Sedin is nursing a groin injury. Late in the third period of Game 2 here Henrik was down on his knees during a stoppage in play by the Vancouver bench stretching out his groin and after the game he…

  17. Andrei Markov has torn ACL, Staal "day-to-day"

    May 4, 2010, 12:45 PM EST

    Comments Off

    TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports today that he has confirmed what everyone suspected: Canadiens defenseman Andrei Markov has a torn ACL. Obviously the testing he was undergoing had to do with the MRI’s he was getting on his knee. While we haven’t received exact confirmation as to his availability for the rest of the playoffs —…

  18. Stuart to return, "If my veins hold up"

    May 4, 2010, 12:15 PM EST

    Comments Off

    It’s amazing that Mark Stuart is anywhere even remotely close to playing, but after taking part in a morning skate it seems that he is gearing up for a possible return to the Bruins in the playoffs. He’d even like to return in the second round, if possible. As recently as a couple of weeks…

  19. Minor adjustments key in Blackhawks win

    May 4, 2010, 11:15 AM EST

    The Chicago Blackhawks looked like a completely different team on Monday night, perhaps taking a game or so to adjust to the difference between playing the Predators and playing the Canucks. It was all apparent that after just one game the Hawks had made some changes in their approach, which a bit impressive considering their…

  20. Video: Marc Savard allegedly bites Dan Carcillo

    May 4, 2010, 10:30 AM EST

    It’s obvious that things are getting a bit heated between the Flyers and Bruins, which is no surprise, and at the heart of it all is Dan Carcillo and Marc Savard. I know, it’s tough to think of Savard as a guy involved in all this, but before his concussion he wasn’t exactly the most…

    May 3, 2010, 10:00 PM EST

    Before we go any further, it’s important to note that this post will cover Sidney Crosby and his frustration with the lack of penalty calls in yesterday’s loss the Montreal Canadiens. I know what kind of response this might bring. It’s also important to note that while I don’t completely agree with his actions or…

    May 3, 2010, 8:45 PM EST

    While the entire hockey world was up in arms this morning over the officiating fiasco in last night’s Red Wings and Sharks game, NHL director of officiating Terry Gregson is perfectly content saying that last night’s referees did a perfectly fine job.
