    Comments Off

    Joe Pavelski (deservingly) will dominate many of the “player of the day” type headlines around the NHL since he’s been hotter than Mila Kunis the last 3-5 games. (More on that later. Pavelski, that is, not Kunis.) Another piping-hot run is that of Montreal Canadiens sniper Mike Cammalleri. He’s only played one playoff game so…

  2. Sharks win thanks to the two Joes: Thornton and Pavelski

    May 2, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Joe Thornton must continue to put up numbers to kill all the choking jokes, but Sharks fans must feel good about his first two games against Detroit. In Game 1, Thornton supplied a sweet assist.

    Joe Pavelski is far from the “other” Joe right now. He tied the game 1-1 with yet another goal on the powerplay about midway through the first period. This makes it five consecutive games with at least one goal for the red hot Big Pavelski. (The puck abides?) Ryane Clowe also had some really nice…

    May 2, 2010, 2:59 PM EDT

    Canadiens head coach Jacques Martin has said this afternoon that Jaroslav Halak will get the start today against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
