  1. Save of the Night – October 24 (Antero Niittymaki)

    Oct 25, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    OK, the game was long over and there were more important saves tonight (Henrik Lundqvist made some pivotal stops to keep the New York Rangers ahead of the New Jersey Devils). But sometimes you just have to award style instead substance. This is one of those times: Antero Niittymaki made an impressive splitting save on…

  2. Goal of the Night – October 24 (Cody Franson)

    OK, I know that he’s talented and wears No. 4 … but take it easy with the Bobby Orr comparisons. Now that I set that aside, this is still a silky smooth goal by Nashville Predators defenseman Cody Franson. He wasn’t the only Predators defenseman who scored a nice goal last night, either, as Shea…

    At some point, you almost wonder if the Boston Bruins should consider making hospital scrubs their next alternate uniform. The team is dealing with injuries to key components such as Marc Savard and Marco Sturm and certainly didn’t have an easy time last season. Add another important player to the injured reserve because defenseman Johnny…

    The spotlight might be on San Jose’s meltdown, but credit should go to Miikka Kiprusoff and Rene Bourque of the Flames for winning this one 4-0. More on that game after the jump.

    NY Rangers 3, New Jersey 1 It was pretty hard to blame the Devils’ woes on Ilya Kovalchuk after the team was bludgeoned 6-1 by the Buffalo Sabres in his absence. You cannot really point to him for this loss, either, as Kovalchuk was the only New Jersey player to pierce Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist…

    Nashville Predators v Chicago Blackhawks

    For at least one night, the Nashville Predators sit atop the NHL’s standings with 13 points. They’re also the only team without a regulation loss, although two quick third period goals from Tampa Bay made Anders Lindback & Co. sweat it out.

  8. Antti Niemi gets pulled during first period against Calgary

    Comments Off

    If there wasn’t justification for a goalie controversy in the San Jose Sharks net, it’s difficult to argue against that reality after tonight’s disastrous start against the Calgary Flames. The Sharks pulled Antti Niemi before the first period ended today after the struggling Finnish netminder allowed three goals on only five shots, surrendering goals to…

    Every now and then, we’ll take a look at each conference’s standings to see if there are any trends or quirks that explain why some teams are failing and others are overachieving.

    A pair of key players for Western Conference contenders are getting close to returning to their teams lineups. In Chicago, defenseman Brian Campbell is back on his skates and working out after injuring his right knee during training camp. Campbell being out of the lineup has thinned things out for the Blackhawks, but they haven’t…

    Paul Bissonette (aka: Biz Nasty) is a renaissance man on the Internet. You might know him better as a Twitter superstar, but when he gets in the lineup for the Phoenix Coyotes, you better believe he’s in there to mix things up. In this case, his job was to try and light a fire under…

    The Red Wings and Ducks played another wild game in Detroit tonight and again it would be Pavel Datsyuk who stole the show. When the teams met earlier this year, Datsyuk earned himself a Gordie Howe hat trick scoring a goal, getting an assist and fighting Corey Perry. Tonight, Datsyuk would find a new way…
