    Jun 4, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

    Judging by some of the questions the players are being asked, combined with the overall atmosphere that exists today around the Wachovia Center, and you would think the Flyers were the ones with the lead in this series.

    John Tavares put up a great performance for Canada under the dull spotlight of the 2010 IIHF World Championships, but the tournament wasn’t all good for the future of the New York Islanders. He ended up breaking his foot during the competition but fought through the pain in the team’s final three games. The good…

    Comments Off

    Seeing the demeanor of both James van Riemsdyk and Dan Carcillo after this morning skate — combined with the fact that Carcillo was benched in the third period Wednesday night — speculation was fueled that JVR would be back in the lineup tonight. Just don’t ask Peter Laviolette about it. “Good try. We don’t talk…

    Jun 4, 2010, 2:27 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The top line of the Philadelphia Flyers have not had a good series against the Hawks, but the rest of the team isn’t really all that worried about it. After all, the Flyers survived until the third round without leading scorer Jeff Carter. Simon Gagne’s return in the second round helped spark the Flyers’ historic…

  5. Scott Hartnell: Beating Dustin Byfuglien at his own game

    Jun 4, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Going into the Stanley Cup finals, one of the most-hyped matchups was Dustin Byfuglien vs. Chris Pronger (hey, we hyped it up on Pro Hockey Talk, too). Of course, there was that one nagging problem: Byfuglien can be a bit, um, flighty. If the Philadelphia Flyers have their own hot-and-cold answer to Byfuglien, it’s the…

  6. USA Hockey honors Ryan Miller, Brian Burke

    Jun 4, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    With all due respect to Patrick Kane and Brian Rafalski, no two people contributed more to American hockey in the last season than goalie Ryan Miller and executive Brian Burke. It shouldn’t be too surprising, then, that USA Hockey is honoring both at its President’s Awards Dinner on June 12, part of its 2010 Annual…

    Jun 4, 2010, 11:50 AM EDT

    In case you missed yesterday’s news, CBC personality Ron MacLean helped save a man from drowning (our own Joe Yerdon shared his thoughts/jokes here).

  8. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Will Carcillo be a scratch?

    Jun 4, 2010, 11:29 AM EDT

    Coach Peter Laviolette put Dan Carcillo into the lineup in Game 2 in an effort to give his team an infusion of energy and physicality early in the game. After Carcillo spent the first period going absolutely crazy on the ice, including one heck of a hit on his own teammate, he was limited in…

  9. 2010 Stanley Cup finals: Tough defense, not fatigue, slows Mike Richards and Jonathan Toews

    Jun 4, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    It’s natural to throw a quality player under the bus when he’s hit a brick wall. The thing is, sometimes people stumble when they try to identify what, exactly, that brick wall is. Take, for instance, the case of the teams’ two floundering captains. Both Jonathan Toews and Mike Richards were playing incredible hockey through…

  14. Jason Spezza wants to stay in Ottawa… Sort of

    Jun 3, 2010, 9:45 PM EDT

    Earlier today, James took you down the developing ugly path in Ottawa surrounding Jason Spezza and his unhappiness in Ottawa. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

    Jun 3, 2010, 5:40 PM EDT

    Chris Pronger made plenty of waves for snatching the game pucks after the Flyers lost Game 1 and 2. (Jeremy Roenick even called the big defenseman “bush league” for doing so.) Art by: Deven “Gray” Hoover from the Couch Tarts. Idea By: James O’Brien

    When it comes to the NFL Draft, everyone and their crazy Uncle Henry seem to come out with a mock draft. Hockey might not enjoy the same brand of around-the-clock coverage, but that doesn’t change the fact that June’s Entry Draft will fuel debates among NHL executives and scouts for some time. Who will end…

  19. 2010 Stanley Cup finals: Flyers hold big special teams advantage so far

    Jun 3, 2010, 4:10 PM EDT

    Late into the 2009-10 regular season, I took a look at one of my simple stats: special teams plus/minus. At that point in the season, the Chicago Blackhawks ranked as the second best team in that area (scoring 18 more special teams goals than they allowed) while the Philadelphia Flyers took seventh place. The Blackhawks…
