    As we approach the inevitable end to the season for the Detroit Red Wings, questions about the future of Tomas Holmstrom and Nicklas Lidstrom are going to keep coming up. Detroit GM Ken Holland has gone on record as saying that the team will do everything possible to retain their prized veteran free agents, and…

  5. General Manager of the Year award coming soon

    May 2, 2010, 12:30 AM EDT

    Get your “Fire Glen Sather” jokes ready, because the NHL might introduce an annual award for the league’s best general manager, according to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun. The first annual General Manager Award will indeed see the light of day this year. You may remember this was Brian Burke’s idea a few years back and, finally, after…

  6. Blackhawks react to 5-1 beating

    May 1, 2010, 11:50 PM EDT

    The Vancouver Canucks dismantled Chicago tonight and that much is not lost on the Blackhawks. Still, it is just one game and coach Joel Quenneville thinks that their experience in last year’s playoffs will help them fight the urge to panic. “We had a lot of uncertainly last year,” Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said. “Going into…

  7. Report: Marco Sturm will miss rest of playoffs

    May 1, 2010, 11:15 PM EDT

    The Boston Bruins are just asking themselves for “bruise” related pun headlines. This afternoon, they saw Marc Savard – a guy who missed two months with concussion issues – score a game-winning overtime goal. With the way their season is going, it almost makes sense that they are dealing with another injury problem. The team…

  8. Canucks dominate Blackhawks 5-1

    May 1, 2010, 10:45 PM EDT

    Things were not easy for the Chicago Blackhawks against Nashville, a seventh seed known mainly for grinding their way into the playoffs. So I had a feeling that things would be even rockier against the Vancouver Canucks and that clearly seems to be the case. Vancouver Canucks 5, Chicago Blackhawks 1 Canucks lead series 1-0…

  9. What they're saying about Canucks-Hawks

    For hockey nerds like myself, it doesn’t get much better than Canucks versus Blackhawks. These teams are loaded with talent (Vancouver has those supremely bizarre Sedin twins! Chicago has Kane, Toews, Keith and Hossa!), but what really makes this series fascinating is the fact that the they truly hate each other. To get you revved…

  10. NBC Videos: Wrapping up Boston's win

    Boston’s dramatic overtime win over Philadelphia was exciting, for sure. After Marc Savard’s fairytale OT GWG, Pierre McGuire spoke with another resurgent Bruins forward who suffered from plenty of concussion problems: Patrice Bergeron. What follows is an interesting interview from a player with a unique perspective on what his teammate must be going through.  …

  11. Marc Savard: "You couldn't script it any better."

    May 1, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Thanks to Joe Sullivan of the Bruins Blog, we have a transcript of Marc Savard’s post-game press conference. Just an instant before Savard’s big game-winning slapshot, I was remarking that we hadn’t seen much of the returning hero in the third period and especially not in overtime, when the energy of the game was incredibly…

  12. After long wait, Hawks ready for Canucks

    We’ve seen some great hockey already in the second round, but all of the hype has been building towards tonight’s game between the Chicago Blackhawks and Vancouver Canucks. These teams are incredibly evenly matched, play very similar styles of hockey and there’s been some bad blood brewing between these two the past few seasons. All…

  14. Only in the movies: Savard wins game for Bruins in OT

    May 1, 2010, 3:46 PM EDT

    Marc Savard was nowhere near the force the Bruins had hoped he could be, playing minimal minutes while looking like a hockey player in his first game back from bad concussion. Yet with just one big, booming shot he did everything the Bruins would need of him in this game: score the game winning goal…

    I guess this is why they play 60 minutes. After the first period, it looked as if the Flyers would just roll over and wouldn’t prove much contest for the Boston Bruins. After the second period, the Flyers had pulled within a goal and had grabbed the momentum, but the Bruins once again went ahead…
