Finally there’s more good news for ailing Thrashers goalie Ondrej Pavelec. After Pavelec’s scary fainting spell during the Thrashers first game of the season and subsequent concussion from his fall, he’s been off the ice and not playing as he recovers. Now, according to the Blueland Blog, he’s been medically cleared to start practicing so…

It’s awfully early to go looking ahead towards the off-season at who is going to be an unrestricted free agent, but one of the players that figures to get a lot of attention then if he’s available is Stars forward Brad Richards. Richards is one of the best set-up men in the league, perpetually at…

Coyotes captain Shane Doan might be getting a call from the NHL about his shot to the head on Ducks forward Dan Sexton.

It’s Monday and you’re already upset about that. Don’t worry, hockey’s here for you after you get out of work.

Sheldon Souray is a man without an NHL team that wants him right now, and the one that does have him isn’t in a hurry to get him out.

With just two games, the nightly recap makes for a light bit of reading.

Cam Fowler had a game to remember scoring his first NHL goal. Unfortunately he wasn’t able to stick around to see his team win 3-2 after getting knocked out on his next shift. See the video inside this post.

You think it’s hard to be a backup goalie? How about when you’re backing up Panthers goalie Tomas Vokoun who plays all the time? All of a sudden, life seems easy.

A look at tonight’s starting goalies in the NHL’s light schedule.

In this increasingly fragmented and confusing world – not to mention a fledgling economy – getting a good deal is about more than feeling smart. Sometimes, it’s just a flat-out necessity. Just the other day, I saw the Dallas Stars advertise their delightfully pun-based promotion “Ott-toberfest.” It’s a pretty cool deal, as fans who cash…

I realize that, from a box office standpoint, it makes sense that most NHL teams prefer to play on a Saturday night. It’s the most likely night that people can go out to a hockey game, since they’re off and there’s no work the next day. But from a selfish hockey fan perspective, I wish…

Maybe the Vancouver Canucks have some kind of hex on them. Perhaps it’s residual bad karma from the Todd Bertuzzi-Steve Moore incident. Whatever the case may be, the Canucks blue line is dealing with injury problems yet again this season. New addition Keith Ballard is reportedly suffering from a “slight concussion” after being hit into…

Honestly, I thought the NHL went overboard in handing New York Islanders defenseman James Wisniewski a two game suspension for making the international gesture for fellatio toward Sean Avery. Sure, it was childish and embarrassing, but isn’t that how you’d describe just about every post-whistle scuffle and bit of trash talking? He simply translated that…

When it comes to pesky players such as Buffalo Sabres pest Patrick Kaleta, there’s a fine line between doing your job (frustrating opponents into penalties) and hurting your own team by taking bad penalties. There are times when such tomfoolery just falls flat on its face, though. Wednesday’s game against the New Jersey Devils provided…

We covered a ton (OK, just 10) of last night’s games, but two of the contests went past our bed times. Let’s recap those late Saturday games for your reading enjoyment. Calgary 5, Edmonton 3 For at least one night, Darryl Sutter’s off-season additions looked like shrewd moves. Alex Tanguay scored the first goal then…

Ty Conklin robs Mike Ribeiro of what looks like a certain goal with a stunning save. It might not have won the St. Louis Blues the game (they ended up losing in a shootout), but it allowed them to take a point from the game. Check out that outstanding save after the jump.

People throw around “Goal of the Year” praise almost like how people call a film that was released in January the movie of the year, but they might just be onto something with this stunning goal by Minnesota Wild defenseman Brent Burns. Check it out after the jump.

We won’t be able to cover the two latest games, but there’s plenty of hockey to go around with 12 games on the docket tonight. Let’s take a look at a busy night in the NHL. Pittsburgh 5, Philadelphia 1 Read all about Brent Johnson and Sidney Crosby’s strong night here. Montreal 4, Ottawa 3…

Good news for the Detroit Red Wings: it sounds like Johan Franzen isn’t too banged up. While the sniping Swedish forward did admit that the Mark Fistric hit left him with a “mild concussion,” Franzen said that he was feeling quite a bit better and it doesn’t appear that he’ll deal with too many issues.…

Tomas Vokoun earned his second consecutive shutout tonight, keeping the red-hot Tampa Bay Lightning off of the scoreboard in a 6-0 win for the Florida Panthers. Vokoun’s contract will expire after the season, so the question is: can the talented but underrated Czech goalie make enough waves to earn one more big contract?
