It’s been long enough that any dreams Nashville Predators fans had about Alex Radulov returning to the team are probably long forgotten. If they weren’t totally erased a few months ago, it seems just about official that he won’t play as a Predator ever again. That’s because the talented Russian winger will ply his trade…

Oh, Ice Girls and cheerleaders. Your gyrations and spandex uniforms are fodder for post-goal closeups and frowning house wives in equal proportions. It’s debatable whether they make sense in sports in general and hockey in particular, but anyone who cringes at their presence must also acknowledge that they’re not going anywhere. In fact, their navel-sporting…

Apparently Chris Pronger is such a destructive physical force that sometimes, he even hurts his own teammates. That happened during the Philadelphia Flyers’ light skate today, as Pronger knocked already-banged-up forward Ville Leino out of practice, according to Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly. Now Leino is questionable for Saturday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.…

It’s already been a tough start in Tampa Bay for normally prolific forward Simon Gagne. While the Lightning have been pretty explosive overall, Gagne is pointless so far in six games and has an abysmal -8 rating. The bad news keeps piling on, too, as TSN reports that Gagne will miss Tampa Bay’s game against…

Here’s the rundown of tonight’s likely starting goalies in the NHL.

The Colorado Avalanche are going to have to make due without defenseman and captain Adam Foote for an undetermined amount of time thanks to a concussion. The Denver Post’s Adrian Dater has the story on what’s going on with Foote. The 39-year-old defenseman suffered the injury at the end of the first period Thursday night…

James Engquist, the fan grabbed by Canucks forward Rick Rypien, isn’t happy with the punishment handed down by the NHL and says if he did that at his job he’d be fired. Welcome to reality, James.

If you’re a recently deposed former backup goalie in the NHL who was waived, what’s your next step for work? Turns out, playing in Europe is the answer.

The start of Olli Jokinen’s second tour of duty in Calgary isn’t exactly off to the start the Flames were hoping for.

Canucks forward Rick Rypien gets a six-game suspension, but we’re left feeling that that wasn’t enough.
Oct 22, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT
With Canucks forward Rick Rypien’s hearing in New York City with the NHL front office underway today to decide what his punishment for grabbing a fan during a game will be, it’s about time we caught up with what you think his punishment should be. We polled you guys recently to find out what you…

We’re doubling our pleasure here because it’s just that good. The save of the night comes from overtime between Pittsburgh and Nashville where Pascal Dupuis bailed out his goalie Marc-Andre Fleury from losing in embarrassing fashion, preventing Cody Franson from stuffing home a loose puck off a J.P. Dumont shot. Shortly after that, Kris Letang…

Congratulations to everyone reading this, you’ve made it to Friday. Your reward for making to the weekend? An evening filled with hockey, five games worth. As always, here’s the schedule with all times Eastern. 7:00 pm Calgary @ Columbus I don’t suppose too many folks will be eyeballing the attendance in Columbus will they? After…

While there may not have been too many people there to see it, the highlights of the goals of the night belong to Phoenix’s Lee Stempniak for bagging a hat trick in the Coyotes 4-2 win over the Kings. It was Stempniak’s first career hat trick and we’ll not hear anything about the third goal…

Here’s your wrap up on a busy night in the NHL and some of the big names came out to play, meanwhile no one came out to watch hockey in Arizona.

Johan Franzen’s return to the ice following a slight concussion last week turned out to be a pretty good one for the Detroit Red Wings. Franzen’s goal midway through the third period proved to be the game-winning goal for the Wings in their 4-2 win over Calgary. Franzen did it in an interesting way though,…

The Islanders and Lightning needed overtime to settle things and Matt Moulson was credited with the game-winning goal in overtime as he apparently got one slightly past Lightning netminder Dan Ellis. The goal was initially waived off by the referee who stood right over the play, but replay showed the puck apparently getting across enough…

If the fans in Arizona are excited about the prospect of keeping the Coyotes in town, they’ve got a very funny way of showing it.

They seem to mix together about as well as oil and water do, but cheerleaders are coming to Edmonton whether they like it or not.

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…
