    While Alex Ovechkin’s season may seem quiet to this point, last night against Calgary, Ovechkin made his presence felt and felt quickly scoring two goals in the span of 12 seconds. If these goals were in the rodeo, he’d be breaking records for bull riding or something equally as punny. Hey, at least it’s not…

    Part of what made last night’s 7-2 Calgary loss to Washington so hard was seeing how Calgary couldn’t stop just Washington from scoring on them but they also couldn’t stop themselves from scoring on Miikka Kiprusoff. Take, defenseman Cory Sarich, who in an effort to get the puck away from his goalie ended up putting…

    If you thought that the rough start to the year for the New Jersey Devils couldn’t possibly get any worse, apparently you don’t believe in karma. During last night’s 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings, Parise ended up leaving the game early and did not play in the third period. Parise is listed as…

    Tonight’s game between the Devils and Kings could’ve seen Ilya Kovalchuk playing against the team that traded for him last year. Alas, for the Kings, it’s a match up against the biggest star to spurn them this summer.

    Some might say that the team is better off without him, at least if they just look at wins and losses. They made the playoffs with him playing hurt or missing games completely, then beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round of the playoffs after Matt Cooke sidelined him with a vicious but clean…

    Scott Niedermayer might not be the last New Jersey Devils defenseman to wear No. 27 – former Devil Mike Mottau oddly wore it after Niedermayer went to the Anaheim Ducks – but the team reportedly plans on retiring his number now that his playing days are over with the NHL.

    There’s been a mix of good (Ondrej Pavelec) and bad (Bryan Little) injury news so far today, but here are two new positive bits from Canadian teams. First, word from the Ottawa Senators is that dynamic center Jason Spezza should be back after missing four games with a groin injury, according to TSN. Ottawa is…

    While I haven’t been able to find an “official” video of the hit (click here for a Youtube version), Buffalo Sabres defenseman Shaone Morrisonn delivered a check on Atlanta Thrashers forward Bryan Little that left the former 30-goal scorer with a concussion and facial lacerations. Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution passed along the report.…

    We’ve speculated that Ondrej Pavelec might start for the first time since that scary collapsing incident (and the concussions that resulted from it) this week, but it seems just about official. Chris Vivlamore reports that he will indeed start instead of Chris Mason tonight. Mason won his last two starts, including Friday’s game against the…
