The prognosis is not good for either Chris Drury or Marian Gaborik after suffering injuries tonight against Toronto, but it may be worse for Vinny Prospal. It was a bad night to be an injured Ranger.

Rangers forwards Marian Gaborik and Chris Drury both leave tonight’s game against Toronto with injuries.

The ongoing saga of the sale of the Phoenix Coyotes may finally be at an end and Matthew Hulsizer could be the savior of hockey in the desert.

Hop in after the jump to take a look at some of the gaudiest, silliest or even most blasphemous tattoos ever to be devoted to the sport of hockey. Warning: once you witness some of these low moments in body art, you might not be able to “un-see” them.

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…

Predicting professional sports team’s future is a fool’s errand. It doesn’t matter if you’re making guesses based on a summer’s worth of transactions, guessing which team will win a playoff series when an 82-game season boils down to a maximum of seven contests or – in this case – trying to see if a small…

I tackled the typical points/goals/plus-minus leaders in an earlier post, so I thought I’d take a look at some of the odd stats from the first week of hockey. Small sample sizes can make for some strange numbers, so enjoy this look around the league. (Feel free to spout some strange stats of your own…

It’s ludicrously early in the NHL regular season, but why not take a look at some of the statistical leaders after one week of action? I’ll also ponder which players might be likely to continue their success and which ones are probably just enjoying a brief moment in the sun. In this post, I’ll glance…

The Dallas Stars are looking awfully impressive at 3-0 so far, although I think that the team is still resting on a slightly shaky foundation (at least in net, considering how injury prone Kari Lehtonen is). But I’ll get into why the Stars might – or might not – be for real a little bit…
Nick Foligno fined, but not suspended, for hit to head on Patrick Dwyer; Did NHL make the right choice?
Oct 15, 2010, 1:48 PM EST
The NHL decided to fine – but not suspend – Nick Foligno for his hit on Patrick Dwyer. Check out a bigger version of the video and vote on whether or not Foligno deserved to be suspended by clicking “Read More.”

This is one of those saves that always mystifies me a bit. It forces me to wonder: “Is it really that great of a save, or was it more about the forward failing to lift the puck ever so slightly?” Eh, either way, it was a pretty entertaining piece of work by Jaroslav Halak. Let’s…

7:00 pm Colorado @ New Jersey Brian Rolston’s loss seems to be New Jersey’s gain, as the team looks like it will finally dress a full roster – or close to a full roster – because of his placement on the long term injured reserve. I wouldn’t go as far as to say that they’re…

Former Edmonton Oilers owner Peter Pocklington has been dealing with some legal issues lately, as the man many people blame for The Wayne Gretzky Trade pleaded guilty for perjury charges in a bankruptcy case. Pocklington was supposed to find out what kind of sentence he will face – he’s hoping to avoid jail time in…

Our goal of the night comes from last night’s mostly lackluster tilt between the Calgary Flames and Florida Panthers. Panthers young forward Shawn Matthias makes the most of his open-ice break with Rostislav Olesz and places a perfect shot over the shoulder of Flames goalie Miikka Kiprusoff. Matthias’ goal came in the third period and…

While the Red Wings got manhandled by the Dallas Stars 4-1 last night, the post game buzz wasn’t about Mike Modano or the Stars victory, but rather about Red Wings forward Johan Franzen’s claim that a hit he took from Stars defenseman Mark Fistric gave him a concussion. While that has yet to be determined,…

While the Panthers get off their bad streak, worries continue to grow in Calgary over the Flames’ seeming lack of motivation.

Let’s take a look at the five “earlier” games that took place today. We’ll cover the Florida-Calgary contest tomorrow morning. Ottawa 3, Carolina 2 The Senators managed to win this one despite being shaken up by the injury of their starting goalie, Pascal Leclaire. Then again, Ottawa may secretly benefit from Leclaire’s departure, as I…

In the interest of tidying things up a bit tonight, here a few minor bits of injury news for the Buffalo Sabres and Columbus Blue Jackets. The Buffalo News passes along the word from Sabres coach Lindy Ruff that former Washington Capitals defenseman Shaone Morrisonn will miss Friday’s game (and possibly Saturday’s as well) with…

Perhaps you should keep an eye out for ex-girlfriends and friends-turned-enemies tonight, as there are plenty of awkward reunions this Thursday. Two of the biggest stories of the day center on teams seeing their old heroes, as Mike Modano is playing against the Dallas Stars after suiting up for them for more than 20 years…
Ottawa Senators’ Pascal Leclaire leaves with ‘lower body injury’; Could Brian Elliott be better option anyway?
Oct 14, 2010, 8:47 PM EST
It’s a good thing that the Ottawa Senators are used to life without Pascal Leclaire – and with backup/1b goalie Brian Elliott – because it looks like the troubled goalie will face yet another injury issue. Leclaire left tonight’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes with a “lower body injury” and won’t return, according to TSN.…
