  3. Examining Sidney Crosby's struggles

    May 7, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    During the Ottawa Senators series, Sidney Crosby was making a case for being the consensus greatest player in the hockey world. With an absurd 14 points in only 5 games, it looked like he was going to threaten Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux for all-time playoff performances. It only seems fair, then, that the deification…

  5. Poll: How much is Jaroslav Halak worth?

    May 7, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    It’s not exactly as if Jaroslav Halak was a face in the crowd before the playoffs started. The impressive Slovak goalie sported an outstanding 92.4 save percentage and wrestled the Canadiens’ starting job from should-be savior Carey Price this season. Still, on a league-wide scale, there’s little doubt that this post-season run put him on…

    May 7, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    With Pavel Datsyuk hobbled and Henrik Zetterberg focusing most of his energy on stopping Sidney Crosby, the Detroit Red Wing who struck The Fear of God into me last Stanley Cup Finals was Johan Franzen.

  7. 2010 NHL Playoffs: Halak thwarts Malkin

    May 7, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    The Save of the Night seemingly had to come from Pittsburgh-Montreal merely because of the fact that Detroit beat San Jose by about a bijillion (OK, six) goals. With the Canadiens trapping the Penguins’ attack into submission, it seemed like this game would finish without a truly dangerous moment. That was until Evgeni Malkin managed to…

    Just to prove that sometimes an obvious hunch pays off, the Sharks started the second period with starting goalie Evgeni Nabokov on the bench and backup goalie Thomas Greiss in goal.  It wasn’t long into the second period until the Red Wings showed Greiss just what Nabokov was dealing with as Brian Rafalski scored on…
