    It’s too bad we couldn’t show these uncensored. I can only imagine the awesomeness that was the oral battle between Dan Carcillo and Adam Burish tonight.  

  4. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: Video – Carcillo's rocky return

    Jun 1, 2010, 12:45 AM EDT

    The Flyers put Dan Carcillo into the lineup to try and give the team a bit of a different edge, some attitude and some energy after the Flyers got away from what they do best in Game 1. After coming out of the gates with his hockey pants on fire, Carcillo spent most of the…

  5. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: Blackhawks and Flyers still not at their best

    Jun 1, 2010, 12:15 AM EDT

    This has been a very entertaining series to watch so far, especially considering some of the bad blood that is developing between these two teams. Still, it’s sad to see both teams fail to play their best two games in a row. The Chicago Blackhawks are still waiting for some kind of production from Toews,…

  6. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 2: Once again, Niemi the difference for Hawks

    May 31, 2010, 11:47 PM EDT

    Before the postseason started, there were many early favorites for who would be the recipient of the Conn Smythe at the end of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Of course, these would be dependent on the rest of their team as well, but I doubt that anyone had Antti Niemi at the top of their pool…

  7. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 2: Hawks win 2-1, take 2-0 series lead

    Both teams tightened thing up defensively, Dan Carcillo did his part to light a fire under the Flyers but it would go all for naught as the Chicago Blackhawks would take out the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals 2-1. The Blackhawks got on the board in the second period first…

  8. 2010 Stanley Cup finals: Live Chat for Game 2 of Flyers-Hawks

    At first I thought that Saturday’s Live Chat had the most readers ever, but it turns out it had the most comments. While that’s not as sexy as sheer reader numbers, what that means is that everyone had a lot to say about that wacky Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals. (And maybe ……

  14. 2010 Stanley Cup finals: Top stars for Blackhawks, Flyers must improve

    May 31, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    The Chicago Blackhawks might have won Game 1 on Saturday, but neither team should be too pleased with their overall efforts. Sure, the Hawks should be happy that their supporting cast contributed so much and the Flyers can at least take some positivity from giving their opponents a good run, but both teams played horrible defense.…

  15. Remembering Chicago's 'relentless' pursuit of Marian Hossa

    May 31, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    Just a few moments ago, I discussed a Montreal Gazette story that included an interesting bit regarding hockey agent Rich Winter’s formula for building elite NHL teams. As it turns out, I couldn’t help but find another portion of that story quite interesting. It’s not surprising for teams to go all-out to court star players. Sometimes, in college sports,…

  16. Agent offers 'Moneyball'-style formula for elite NHL teams

    May 31, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    What defines an “elite” team? Let’s get the generic questions out of the way. Do you need wave after wave of high-end offensive talent? Perhaps the biggest component is a defensive system that can smother your opposition’s attack into submission. Or maybe it’s all about having a goalie who can stand tall when your team…

  17. 2010 Stanley Cup finals: Dan Carcillo may return for Game 2

    Here are some minor injury updates and news for tonight’s Game 2 between the Flyers and Blackhawks. Darren Dreger reports that Flyers super-pest Dan Carcillo is expected to be back in the orange tonight for Philadelphia. Take a look at Dreger’s Tweet. (That sounds a bit dirty, doesn’t it?)

  18. 2010 Stanley Cup finals: Dave Bolland's 'checking line' makes a huge impact for Chicago

    May 31, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    The one thing that separates the Chicago Blackhawks from the rest of the league – aside from that horrible, horrible, horrible “Chelsea Dagger” goal song – is their slap-you-in-the-face depth. Say what you will about Brian Campbell, you’re doing pretty well when he’s (maybe) your third best blueliner. After you get past the Toews and…

  19. Andrew Ladd misses morning skate, unlikely for Game 2

    While missing a pre-game skate is no guarantee that a player will miss a game, it’s still not a promising sign. ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun reports that Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Ladd did not participate in the morning session today. Of course, for at least Game 1, the Blackhawks could live with his replacement Tomas Kopecky. He had…
