  1. It's official: New Jersey Devils move AHL afilliate back to Albany

    Jun 10, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    With the Albany River Rats leaving for Charlotte, NC, the New Jersey Devils have formally been approved to move their AHL affiliate, the Lowell Devils, to Albany for the 2010-2011 season. The River Rats had been the Devils affiliate in the AHL from 1993 to 2006, before New Jersey decided to switch the affiliation over…

  2. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals Game 6 highest rated NHL game since 1974

    Jun 10, 2010, 11:41 AM EDT

    You knew the numbers would be big, but I don’t think anyone thought they’d be this big. As the Flyers tied the game and sent Game 6 into overtime, the call went out across the nation: there’s a Stanley Cup finals game in overtime, you have to watch this. The ratings peaked in the third…

  4. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: Video – Patrick Kane's winning goal

    Jun 10, 2010, 4:23 AM EDT

    It wasn’t pretty, and it left most of the arena, players and announcers confused. But it was effective. Kane’s overtime goal lifted the Hawks over the Flyers, as they won the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1961.  

  5. Video: Jeremy Roenick's emotional response to Blackhawks victory

    Jun 10, 2010, 2:15 AM EDT

     Earlier in the postseason, Roenick tried to pretend that he wasn’t secretly rooting for the Blackhawks to win the Cup. After tonight, there is no doubt. One of the greatest American players to ever step onto the ice in the NHL, Roenick never won a Cup during his long career. He came close, going to…

  6. Mike Richards: "It hurts a lot."

    Jun 10, 2010, 1:45 AM EDT

    Eventually, the Philadelphia Flyers will be able to look back at this past season and what they accomplished against the Chicago Blackhawks and be proud of what they did. For some, that moment will come tonight, or later in the week. For others, it may take a bit longer. For now, however, the Flyers are…

  7. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: We should never have doubted Antti Niemi

    Jun 10, 2010, 1:15 AM EDT

    We all questioned him, admit it. When the Chicago Blackhawks made the public decision to not go after a goaltender at the trade deadline and to instead stick with Cristobal Huet and Antti Niemi, we panned the Hawks and said they were bonkers. There was no way this team could win the Stanley Cup with…

  8. Third time's the charm: Marian Hossa finally hoists the Stanley Cup

    Jun 10, 2010, 12:45 AM EDT

    As if there was any doubt who it would be, Marian Hossa was the first player to be handed the Stanley Cup from captain Jonathan Toews. The 22-year old, after holding the Cup over his head, turned around and instantly looked for #81. The supposedly cursed forward, who had been on the losing side of…

  9. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: In the end, Patrick Kane was the difference

    Jun 10, 2010, 12:06 AM EDT

    Patrick Kane had just one game-winning goal in the entire postseason for the Chicago Blackhawks, but that’s all they ever really needed from him anyway. Jonathan Toews may have won the Conn Smythe trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs, but in the end it was Patrick Kane that was…

  10. Chicago Blackhawks are your Stanley Cup champions

    Jun 9, 2010, 11:12 PM EDT

    Chicago Blackhawks 4, Philadelphia Flyers 3 (OT) Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup finals, 4-2 It was perhaps the most anti-climatic, oddest ending to a Stanley Cup finals we’ve seen in a very long time. Patrick Kane somehow snuck a wrist shot through Michael Leighton’s pads from parallell with the goal line, and he was the…

  11. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6: Hawks take 3-2 lead, 20 minutes from glory

    Jun 9, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Flyers 2, Chicago Blackhawks 3 Hawks lead series 3-2 I’m going to keep this one very brief, as the game is wearing me out and I have to maintain my strength. The Hawks are outshooting the Flyers 27-13, yet midway through the 2nd period were losing 2-1. They roared back thanks to a Patrick…

  12. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6: Flyers to fight for their lives in OT

    Jun 9, 2010, 10:48 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Philadelphia Flyers 3, Chicago Blackhawks 3 Blackhawks lead series 3-3 At this point, it’s almost cliche to talk about the resiliency of the Flyers. But here we are, as they tied up the game late in the 3rd period to send Game 6 into overtime. The Hawks came out initially in the period controlling play,…

  14. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6: All tied up at 1st intermission

    Jun 9, 2010, 8:55 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Flyers 1, Chicago Blackhawks 1 Blackhawks lead series 3-2 Well, the trend of the Flyers starting games poorly continues. The Flyers were outshot 17-7 and their supposed MVP-favorite took two bad penalties in the first period, as Chris Pronger watched the Hawks take a 1-0 lead while he was sitting in the box. To…

  15. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6: Can the Hawks afford to lose tonight?

    Jun 9, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    This is one that the Philadelphia Flyers have to win. Obviously. But is this a game that the Chicago Blackhawks can afford to lose? The first thought is that these teams have been so good at home in this series that it’s very likely the Flyers win tonight. Going to Game 7, however, won’t be…

  16. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6: Who is the new Conn Smythe favorite?

    Jun 9, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Before this series started, I felt that the obvious early choices for the Conn Smythe resided with the Blackhawks in Jonathan Toews and Antti Niemi. After five games, it’s tough to include those two in the conversation. Niemi hasn’t played poorly, but after two strong games to start the finals hasn’t exactly been as good…

  17. Sabres halt contract talks with Zack Kassian

    Jun 8, 2010, 7:32 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    According to The Buffalo News, the Buffalo Sabres have decided to stop talks with 2009 first round draft pick Zack Kassian, after last week’s news broke that Kassian had been arrested for assault outside a bar. Says GM Darcy Regier, courtesy of John Vogl: “It’s obviously not something we condone,” Regier said. “It’s unfortunate. I…

  19. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 5: Blackhawks are in unfamiliar territory

    Jun 6, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Blackhawks vs. Philadelphia Flyers Series tied 1-1 8:00 p.m. EDT, Sunday, June 6, 2010 Live on NBC The Chicago Blackhawks suddenly have their backs against the wall. It’s a position these Hawks aren’t exactly familiar with. They faced some early adversity against the Nashville Predators just as the playoffs were starting, yet since then…

  20. Will Guy Boucher be the next coach of the Columbus Blue Jackets?

    Jun 6, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    There are multiple reports circulating that the Columbus Blue Jackets have extended an offer to Guy Boucher to be their next head coach. Boucher is the hot young name among up-and-coming coaches, and led the Hamilton Buldogs of the AHL to an impressive 52-17-11 record with Montreal Canadiens affiliate. That the Blue Jackets have decided…

  21. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 5: Andrew Ladd still in the lineup

    Jun 6, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Talking with those around me during Game 4, we were all in agreement that perhaps Andrew Ladd had returned a bit too early from his injury. After getting a bit too aggressive in his opening shift and getting a cross-checking penalty in the opening minute of the game, Ladd looked tentative and hesitant to get…

    In the midst of what has become one hell of an entertaining NHL Stanley Cup finals, there is a big surprise brewing in the AHL’s Calder Cup finals. The Texas Stars, in their first season in the league, have absolutely stunned the Hershey Bears in the first two games of the series. The Bears, the…

    Jun 6, 2010, 10:14 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Much of the focus in this series has been the play of Chris Pronger, the mythical veteran on the Flyers that everyone gravitates to in order to get his take on the team, the series and the games. He plays nearly 30 minutes every game and at times he’s out on the ice for an…
