  3. NHL playoffs standings update: Phoenix eyes top spot

    Mar 21, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    We’re getting near the part of the season where every game involves a heavy dose of scoreboard watching. Teams not only need their two points, but some help from other teams to either grab a playoff spot or take a better playoff position headed into the post season. We’re going to start updating the playoff…

    Rick Nash with one of the sneakiest breakaway goals you’ll see this season.

  8. College free agency isn't what it used to be

    Mar 20, 2010, 12:02 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail has a great article up tonight on the state of college free agency. The NHL has started to evolve in the way the teams scout and draft players, and more and more teams are are choosing to draft college players rather than wait until they can sign college…

  9. Wendel Clark: NHL players think they're invincible

    Mar 19, 2010, 9:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Yesterday I talked about how the old ‘hockey code’ seemed to have disappeared from the NHL, after Edmonton Oilers coach Pat Quinn spoke on how he never worried about dangerous hits to the head in his playing days, when players didn’t even wear helmets. Thanks to Chris Johnston and the Globe and Mail, we have…

    Boston Bruins vs. New York Rangers 12:30 p.m. EST – Sunday, March 21, 2010Live on NBC With less than four weeks remaining in the season, the playoff races are starting to heat up. In the West, Detroit is doing it’s best to hold off Calgary and St. Louis and it’s most likely going to be…

    We put a lot of content on this blog each day, and we understand it can be a bit tough to keep track of everything. So at the end of the day we’ll put up a nightly recap of all of that day’s news. Presenting the Pro Hockey Talk Nightcap: Ryane Clow says he didn’t…

  13. Paul Kariya scores his 400th career goal

    Mar 18, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Big congratulations are in order for Paul Kariya, who notched his 400th career goal tonight against the New York Rangers. The St. Louis Blues forward has had a rough couple of seasons lately, after it seemed he would be neck and neck with former teammate Teemu Selanne throughout their careers. Kariya has scored just 33…

  14. What has happened to the 'hockey code' in the NHL?

    Mar 18, 2010, 10:24 PM EDT

    “They’re looking to make the coaches responsible, make the ownership responsible, but until the players accept that this is beyond the limits, nothing is going to change,” said Quinn. “I played without helmets and I don’t remember that kind of stuff happening. “It’s a hard game and there are inadvertent things that happen that will…

  15. Miracle? Japan beats Canada in sledge-hockey

    Mar 18, 2010, 9:11 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The term “miracle on ice” is thrown around a bit too much these days, especially with the USA making it to the gold medal game in this year’s Olympics. This time, I think it’s warranted. Not enough attention is given to Paralympics, and sledge-hockey certainly doesn’t get the attention it deserves. It may not be…

  16. Are the Ducks completely delusional?

    Mar 18, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    I’m not one to just openly bash players or coaches, but frankly I’m getting weary and angry of constantly writing about dangerous and illegal hits instead of actually covering hockey. So when I watched the James Wisniewski hit on Brent Seabrook last night, I just sighed to myself and readied myself for another debate on…

  17. Three Bruins questionable with the flu

    Mar 18, 2010, 12:36 PM EDT

    As if there wasn’t enough pressure on the Boston Bruins for tonight’s rematch against the Pittsburgh Penguins, now it seems they may be without a good chunk of their roster in a critical game. Blake Wheeler, Dennis Wideman and Johnny Boychuk all missed this morning’s skate with flu-like symptoms, and could be out for tonight’s…

  18. Tortorella and Drury disagree on Rangers' maturity

    Mar 18, 2010, 11:56 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Chris Drury isn’t known as someone who says things just to stir the pot. So when he calls out his teammates and his team, chances are there’s some truth and meaning behind his words. From Dan Martin of the New York Post: “Immaturity,” he said. “We’d better grow up fast or we’re going to be…

  19. Senators need help to miss the playoffs

    Mar 18, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    The fact that there is a very real chance the Ottawa Senators could miss the playoffs should surprise nobody, yet the fact that they most likely will make it to the postseason should not be very surprising either. See, the Senators play in the Eastern Conference; home to two great teams, two pretty good team…

  20. Bruins seeking payback could be nightmare for NHL

    Mar 18, 2010, 10:20 AM EDT

    Tonight’s game between the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins will be a defining moment in the history of the NHL. With Matt Cooke facing absolutely zero punishment for his blind-side hit on Marc Savard that left the Boston forward out for the season with a concussion, the Bruins could be out for blood as they…

  21. Ryane Clowe says he didn't want to fight Morrow

    Mar 18, 2010, 9:51 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    We covered plenty of the highlights from the Dallas Stars’ thrashing of the West-leading San Jose Sharks from Tuesday night, but we really didn’t get into meat behind the game. The Sharks actually came out playing well in the game, but Kari Lehtonen made some big saves early and the Stars were able to get…

    Not much action last night, but this was easily the best of the bunch.

  23. Wisniewski's dirty hit on Seabrook: Yep, another one

    Mar 18, 2010, 12:03 AM EDT

    Just when we all started to get past the Alex Ovechkin suspension and the controversy and debate over the hit on Brian Campbell, we have yet another bad hit to mull over. This time, it’s James Wisniewski taking out Brent Seabrook with a high hit that pasted Seabrook to the boards and left him toppling…

  24. 'Golden puck' finally where it belongs

    Mar 17, 2010, 11:13 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    We can all rest easy now; the “Golden Puck” is now where it belongs at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. The puck, shot and scored with by Sidney Crosby in overtime of the gold medal winning game — you remember that game? — had basically been forgotten about in the hours and days…
