  1. 2010 NHL Stanley Cup Finals: How loud was it in Chicago?

    May 30, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Forget the fact that just three or four years ago, the United Center was nearly abandoned by Chicago Blackhawks fans. Now that ownership has changed and has actually worked to bring fans back to the arena, Chicago has become one hell of an example of just how crazed hockey fans can be. The United Center…

  2. Antti Niemi still confident after shaky performance

    May 30, 2010, 2:22 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Antti Niemi had just as shaky a game as Michael Leighton did in the first two periods of last night’s game, with one subtle difference: he stayed in the game and made the big saves when his team needed them the most. It’s also interesting to see how one team pulls their goaltender after five…

  3. Will it be Leighton or Boucher in Game 2?

    Comments Off

    Before the Flyers hold their practice this afternoon and we get a hint of what Laviolette may do with his goaltenders in Game 2 — or we aren’t told anything at all — I figured we could go ahead and debate whether the Flyers should turn back to Michael Leighton. Leighton allowed five goals on…

  4. Laviolette not focusing on "controversial" goal

    May 30, 2010, 11:41 AM EDT

    There were many positives for the Philadelphia Flyers to build on from their Game 1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. They dominated play for the first half of the game and surprised Chicago and the hockey world with a surprising 3-2 lead after the first period. Furthermore, they showed why they got to this point…

  5. 2010 Stanley Cup finals: Supporting cast helps Chicago win weird Game 1, 6-5

    May 29, 2010, 11:58 PM EDT

    Hockey writers might need to dust off a thesaurus or two to describe this one. What’s the correct variation of “strange” to describe this one? Should people refer to it as bewildering? Bizarre? Maybe a car wreck? All of those labels apply, but I think I’ll go with Brandon’s “sloppy” or maybe up the ante…

  6. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 1: Should Leighton have stayed in the game?

    May 29, 2010, 11:31 PM EDT

    I can understand Peter Laviolette pulling Michael Leighton after he allowed five goals on 20 shots. His team was playing horribly sloppy, there was absolutely no crispness for the Flyers and the only reason the game wasn’t a disaster was because the Chicago Blackhawks weren’t doing much better on their end. I understand, but I’m…

  7. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 1: Blackhawks victorious in wild, sloppy affair

    May 29, 2010, 10:57 PM EDT

    Chicago Blackhawks 6, Philadelphia Flyers 5 Blackhawks lead series 1-0 This was not a pretty game. It may have been entertaining, but I’m having a hard time thinking of the last time I witnessed a Stanley Cup finals game that was played this sloppy by both teams. The difference between the two teams was that…

Come chat with us during NBC’s live coverage of the Philadelphia Flyers vs. the Chicago Blackhawks. It should be mighty interesting to see how these not-so-familiar foes match up.…

  9. Goalies, defense under fire through two wild periods, score tied 5-5

    May 29, 2010, 10:24 PM EDT

    Well, if casual fans enjoy goal scoring frenzies, then this game is simply a buffet of goodness. Jacques Lemaire might want to look away from the screen, though. Flyers 5, Blackhawks 5 End of second period Michael Leighton looked nervous early and played that way all game. He ended up getting the boot in the…

  11. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: Byfuglien vs. Pronger the battle to watch

    May 29, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    One of the biggest (literally) reasons for the Blackhawks’ success against the Canucks and the Sharks was forward/defenseman/forward Dustin Byfuglien. The large and seemingly unmovable Byfuglien has scored eight goals in the postseason, including one in each of the past five games. In the Hawks’ four-game sweep of the Sharks, he had the game-winning goal…

  13. How well does Mike Richards compare to Bobby Clarke?

    May 29, 2010, 2:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Just about any Philadelphia Flyers captain will draw comparisons to their greatest one, Bobby Clarke. Especially if that player happens to be a center who can combine edgy grit with goal scoring prowess. Maybe it shouldn’t be surprising, then, that outlets such as TSN are comparing Mike Richards to Clarke. While there are undeniable (if broad)…

  14. 2010 NHL Scouting Combine: Hall opts out of fitness testing, Day 1 results

    May 29, 2010, 1:10 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s common for high-end NFL prospects to shy away from the Combine in order to avoid hurting their stock. In the case of probable 2010 NHL Entry Draft No. 1 pick Taylor Hall, he has a much better excuse for opting out of the fitness side of the event. Folks who wanted to see Taylor Hall go…

    With speed, skill and general skating ability coming to the forefront since the lockout imposed rule changes (or at least increased enforcement), the NHL has become a young man’s game again. Just look at all the best players right now; from Sidney Crosby to Alex Ovechkin and Patrick Kane, almost all of the league’s marquee…

  16. 2010 NHL Scouting Combine: Hall, Seguin answer weird questions

    Comments Off

    Job interviews are awkward. They’re quite a bit like blind dates; there’s a lot of pressure and the person is only meeting a compromised version of yourself. The NHL Scouting Combine includes a 20-minute interview that gives teams a chance to “get to know” prospects. What that seems to come down to, at times at…
