While I’ll always remember him for the part he played in a ridiculous local commercial when he was a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Colby Armstrong is also known for his rugged style mixed with a touch of half-decent scoring ability. The Toronto Maple Leafs might have overpaid him a touch this summer, but he’s…

Which goal was better: Martin St. Louis speeding past the Penguins’ D and roofing it for Tampa Bay or Bryan Little deking his way through the Rangers blue line to score for Atlanta?

Tough news for the Chicago Blackhawks last night, as super-skilled Marian Hossa left Wednesday’s game against the Los Angeles Kings with an upper body injury. You can see video of the injury at the bottom of this post. Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune caught up with Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville, who wasn’t sure about…

The NHL’s ad campaign this year stressed that “questions will be answered” and tonight was loaded with questions. Could the Rangers stay hot? Could Steven Stamkos continue scoring points like Gretzky? Could the Devils get things turned around? Could the Hurricanes remember where the heck their home arena was? All these questions were answered tonight,…

God bless America. James Engquist could stand to cash in on getting grabbed by Canucks forward Rick Rypien by just filing a lawsuit.

You might recall a while back when we told you about how hockey coach and noted sexual predator, and tormentor of former NHLers Theoren Fleury and Sheldon Kennedy, Graham James was being pursued by Winnipeg police once again concerning allegations that were brought against him by Fleury. As it turns out, James has turned himself…

Should the New York Islanders keep Nino Niederreiter at the NHL level and lose one of his bargain entry-level contract years?
Oct 27, 2010, 7:34 PM EDT
If you’ve been wondering about whether or not the NHL and the NHL officials have gotten their act together over whether or not to approve their new four-year Collective Bargaining Agreement, you can wonder no more. The NHL Board of Governors and the NHL Officials Association today ratified the four-year agreement. The NHL issued these…

Whether you’re interested for fantasy hockey reasons or just want to know which goalie your team is playing in a given day, we thought it might be helpful to share our best guesses (based on various previews from newspapers and Web sites plus our own instincts) on who might start each day. 7:00 PM ET…

Chris Pronger admits that he’s not completely healed from off-season knee surgery. Read more about his troubles after the jump.

Tough news for the St. Louis Blues: Roman Polak will need to undergo surgery on his surgery tomorrow thanks to an injury he suffered in the team’s 1-0 with against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Here is the announcement from a Blues’ press release. St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager, Doug Armstrong announced today…

Hindsight is 20/20 and let’s face it: coaches are often judged by their results (wins, losses, playoff berths, etc.) rather than the content of their decisions. New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton was heralded as a genius for winning the Super Bowl largely based on a well-timed onside kick, but if it backfired, he probably…

It almost seems like Jonathan Toews and Sidney Crosby are in some kind of cosmic game of “H-O-R-S-E.” Crosby became the youngest captain to ever win a Stanley Cup, then Toews became the second youngest. They both won a gold medal together for Team Canada, with Crosby scoring the gold medal winning goal while Toews…

At first I was surprised to hear this news, but it could be that I was fooled by local announcers Daryl “Razor” Reaugh and Ralph Strangis into thinking it was a bit more of an “incidental” hit. But now it all makes sense: Stephane Robidas received a one-game suspension today because the league automatically does…

Twenty days after the opening of the NHL season, the Carolina Hurricanes will finally play their first “real” home game. While one of the two games they played with the Minnesota Wild in Helsinki, Finland counted as a home contest, this will be their first one in Raleigh, North Carolina for the 2010-11 season. While…

We covered most of last night’s action in this recap, but just in case you’re wondering what happened in Tuesday’s latest game, here’s a summary of the Vancouver Canucks-Colorado Avalanche game. Vancouver 4, Colorado 3 (OT) The biggest impact from this game might just have happened before the first puck even dropped. That’s because Avalanche…

Peter Budaj helped Avalanche fans to forget about Craig Anderson’s murky injury situation for at least one night, making a few big saves but coming up short in overtime against the Canucks.
