  2. St. Louis Blues' most frustrating player

    Apr 17, 2010, 5:40 PM EDT

    Every now and then, Pro Hockey Talk will ask for insight from some of the best team bloggers out there. For this feature, we asked a simple question: “Who is your team’s most frustrating player?” Just for fun, I decided to throw my guess in the hat, too. First, here is my guess for the…

  4. Bruins tie series 1-1 with 5-3 win over Sabres

    Boston Bruins 5, Buffalo Sabres 3; Series tied 1-1 Well, that was an odd one, wasn’t it? The Boston Bruins took NBC’s first 2010 playoff game this afternoon 5-3 in a game that may come back to haunt the Buffalo Sabres. At first, it seemed like it was going to be a leisurely stroll through Limp Offense…

  6. Bruins' two quick goals make it 4-3 Boston

    Apr 17, 2010, 3:21 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    As Joe wrote in the chat, A 4-on-2 is rarely a good thing. The Bruins scored a tying goal on an out-of-position Buffalo Sabres team and Ryan Miller was way too aggressive to react to a one-timer that eventually found Michael Ryder’s stick. The surge continued as I was putting this post together, a Zdeno…

  7. Video: Thomas Vanek injured in 1st period

    Apr 17, 2010, 3:05 PM EDT

    The Sabres were dealt a tough blow in the first period against the Bruins, when Thomas Vanek went down with what appeared to be a knee injury. The team is reporting it as a “lower body injury” so who knows. Here’s the video:  

  8. Jason Pominville makes it 3-2 Buffalo

    Apr 17, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Buffalo Sabres needed someone to respond and Jason Pominville ended up being that player. Milan Lucic coughed up a bad turnover and a perfect pass was sent to Pominville, who roofed the puck over a helpless Tuukka Rask. Just a beautiful shot by the underrated winger. He’s been on a hot streak right now…

  9. Zdeno Chara scores, game tied 2-2

    Apr 17, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Buffalo Sabres looked like they could be a serious Stanley Cup threat in the first period. Now they’re looking like a serious threat to fall asleep and lose this one altogether. Both Ryan Miller and the team in front of him can be given part of the blame for Zdeno Chara’s game-tying goal. Miller…

  10. Vanek won't return, soft goal brings Boston closer

    Apr 17, 2010, 2:20 PM EDT

    Tomas Vanek will not return to today’s game after suffering a “lower body injury” when he crashed into the boards during a first period odd-man rush. There’s no word on if the problem will cause him to miss extended time, but we’ll keep you up-to-date on that as we hear more. Moving on, a Vladmir…

  11. Matt Ellis gives Sabres 2-0 lead

    Apr 17, 2010, 1:43 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The first goal was a bout of bad luck for Tuukka Rask, but this one is on him. The Sabres’ grinders made a few nice passes and Matt Ellis sent a backhand that beat Rask who was out of position to make the save. Just a moment ago Tomas Vanek was taken hard into the…

  12. Tyler Myers makes it 1-0 Buffalo

    Apr 17, 2010, 1:23 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Normally, I don’t like goalie jeering chants, but you can’t really beat “Tuuu-kaaa” for Tuukka Rask. The mockery started early this afternoon as a Tyler Myers slapper took a funny bounce (it looked like it deflected off of Boston Bruins’ forward Steve Begin) and skipped past the Finnish goalie to give the Sabres a 1-0…

    NBC Playoff Coverage Game 2: Boston Bruins at Buffalo Sabres (Buffalo leads 1-0) Live on NBC at 1:00 PM ET Maybe I’m in the minority here, but in my eyes, the Boston Bruins have been impressively resilient this season. Just think of all the follies that faced that team. If injuries to key players such…

    NBC Playoff Coverage Game 2: Boston Bruins at Buffalo Sabres (Buffalo leads series 1-0) Live on NBC at 1:00 PM ET The other day, the subject of the league’s best goalies came up and I couldn’t help but realize that – at least in this moment in time – it is difficult to make an…

  16. Video: Defense dries up in the desert

    Apr 17, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Western Conference is supposed to be the buttoned-down, defensively superior side of the NHL compared to the loose, semi-soft Eastern Conference. If anything else, the Phoenix Coyotes seemed like they would never be a part of a shooting gallery (unless they had a meltdown and the “shooting” was particularly one-sided.) Yet, that’s exactly what…

  17. 2010 NHL Playoffs: Save of the Night

    Apr 17, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Scoreboard watchers probably assume that the Nashville Predators blew the doors off of the United Center last night, being that the final score was 4-1. Naturally, people who actually saw the game will note that two empty net goals masked what was a tight one goal game. While Antti Niemi allowed a backbreaking soft goal, Pekka…

  18. How one bad goal changed a game

    Apr 17, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Before anyone accuses me of it, I am not blaming Antti Niemi for last night’s loss by the Blackhawks. In fact, I thought he played reasonably well, and he certainly gave his team a good chance to win. No, this is more about the Blackhawks as a team and how after one bad goal they…

  19. Players not happy with the ice in Chicago

    Apr 17, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    You never would have thought that the ice in Chicago would become an issue in the playoffs. Phoenix, perhaps. Nashville and San Jose? Possible. After all, the Blackhawks are an Original Six team and there’s no way they would allow the ice to affect the biggest postseason the team has had in years. Apparently, that’s…

  20. 2010 NHL playoffs: Sidney Crosby

    Sidney Crosby had one heck of night against the Senators, with a goal, a goal line save and the assist of the playoffs so far.
