  1. What they're saying about DET-PHI

    Apr 4, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    The blogs and newspapers are buzzing with activity over the Flyers and Red Wings today. Let’s take a look at what each side is saying about a match that should have some serious playoff implications for both teams. What Detroit blogs and papers are saying Ansar Khan of the Detroit Free Press shares that the Red…

  2. Jeff Carter headlines DET-PHI injury report

    Apr 4, 2010, 10:50 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    We’ve spoken a ton about how goaltending is one of the main stories for the Red Wings and Flyers, but perhaps injuries are the real bullet point to look at. After all, Detroit is mysteriously on fire now that the team is mostly healthy while Philadelphia is in disarray because of some crucial missing pieces.…

  3. Chris Osgood, Brian Boucher expected to start

    Apr 4, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Forgive some hockey fans if they feel a little nostalgic about this afternoon’s goalie matchup between Brian “Don’t call me Bobby” Boucher and Chris Osgood. Boucher’s first tenure with the Flyers came from 99-02 while Osgood is a longtime Red Wing himself (despite bouncing around to the Islanders and Blues as well). Both goalies are…

  4. Saves of the Night: The Moose stays loose

    Apr 4, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    If you’re a Penguins fan like myself, you cannot help but have a rather large soft spot for Johan “The Moose” Hedberg. He came out of nowhere (OK, actually, from Manitoba) to play great in net for Pittsburgh during Mario Lemieux’s magical out-of-retirement run and will drink for free eternally in the bar that exists…

  5. Goals of the Night: Orchestral puck movement

    Apr 4, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Simply put, I’m a sucker for great puck movement. After all, I did name a blog Cycle like the Sedins for goodness sakes. Tonight’s games featured three fantastic examples of smart passing and – to be honest – I couldn’t decide between them. (Carlo Colaiacovo scored a splendid backhand goal too. You should check that one out as well.)…

  6. Flyers hanging on despite long odds

    Apr 4, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Flyers vs. Detroit Red Wings 12:30 p.m. EST – Sunday, April 4, 2010Live on NBC I have to admit that I’ve grown a soft spot for the Philadelphia Flyers this season. They could be on their way to heart breaking collapse down the stretch, falling out of the playoffs after working hard to get…

  7. Red Wings goaltending successful through the years

    Apr 4, 2010, 7:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Philadelphia Flyers vs. Detroit Red Wings 12:30 p.m. EST – Sunday, April 4, 2010Live on NBC There’s no doubt that the Detroit Red Wings are the most stable and successful franchise of the past 20 years. The New Jersey Devils are a close second, but four Stanley Cup championships put the Wings over the top.…

  8. Source of frustration master post

    Apr 3, 2010, 11:15 PM EDT

    We’re going to try to represent all 30 NHL teams with this “Source of Frustration” series, so it’s understandable if you miss a few here and there. There’s some fantastic writing in these posts, though, and we want to give you every opportunity to read them all. For that reason, this post will house links to…

  9. Pavol Demitra frustrates Canucks fans

    Apr 3, 2010, 10:30 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 also provided my guess as to whom that player may be. First, here is my guess…

  10. Red Wings, Flyers save money with goalies

    Apr 3, 2010, 9:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    One thing that dawned on me recently is that the going rate for a starting goalie seems to be around $5 million. It doesn’t even have to be a good one, either. For every Martin Brodeur ($5.2 million) there’s a hit-or-miss Tim Thomas ($5 million) or an even worse Cristobal Huet ($5.6 million). It’s often…

  11. Handicapping Avs, Flames race for 8th place

    Apr 3, 2010, 8:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s pretty obvious that barring another crazy occurrence, the Calgary Flames and Colorado Avalanche are in a two-horse race for the Western Conference’s eighth seed. The two teams are going in completely different directions right now, with the Flames on a three game winning streak while the Avs are on a four game skid. On the bright…

  12. Seidenberg leaves game with nasty cut on wrist

    Apr 3, 2010, 8:04 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Dennis Seidenberg left Boston’s game against Toronto after suffering a serious cut on his wrist. No word on his condition just yet, but we’ll keep an eye on the situation as it develops. Seidenberg earned my admiration (and the nickname “Pain Sponge” which now has some tragic irony) for leading the league in blocked shots as well as…

  13. Teemu Selanne breaks Finland's goal scoring record

    Apr 3, 2010, 6:10 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Teemu Selanne passed his idol Jari Kurri to become Finland’s all-time leading NHL goal scorer last night. The Finnish Flash potted career goals number 602 and 603 against the Canucks in a losing effort. Selanne and Kurri developed a friendship over the years, even playing together for a brief period of time with the Ducks in…

  14. Predators clinch playoff spot by beating Red Wings

    Apr 3, 2010, 4:55 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Nashville Predators proved that they are hotter than the Detroit Red Wings in the simplest way possible: by beating them. The Predators won the game 16 seconds into overtime thanks to a Ryan Suter goal, besting their divisional tormentors 4-3. The Predators guaranteed themselves a playoff berth with the win. Of course, it would…

  15. Penguins break Thrashers' hearts in OT

    Apr 3, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Atlanta Thrashers lost a precious point in a painful way today, falling to the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 in overtime thanks to a Jordan Leopold goal. The Thrashers had the lead three times in the game but relinquished it that many times, allowing the Penguins’ third goal with a little bit more than a minute…

    The trials and tribulations of the Philadelphia Flyers are pretty well known at this point, but exactly how bad is the end of their season?  SBN’s Bird Watchers Anonymous took a deeper look at how the Eastern Conference playoff race is wrapping up and one of the most startling things to read is about the…

  18. Phil Kessel v. Bruins: Final Showdown

    Apr 3, 2010, 12:10 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Phil Kessel trade to the Maple Leafs from Boston has been a heated topic of debate for both teams all season long. You’ve got Bruins fans insisting they didn’t need Kessel to win games ranging to Leafs fans saying they don’t care about the first round pick the team gave up to

  19. NHL Playoff Update: Big Day Ahead

    Apr 3, 2010, 11:10 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    I generally don’t like being the melodramatic type, but today is a pretty huge day for playoff jockeying. I’m not going to go off the deep end and call it an “epic” day, but there’s a lot of things that can get squared away in both conferences. Things get started early this afternoon for the…

  20. Stempniak: Trade was a welcome change

    Apr 3, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Lee Stempniak has been set loose, like a man escaping prison after years of purgatory. After every goal he scores for the Coyotes, I picture Andy Dufresne raising his arms to the sky in the pouring rain after slogging 300 yards through filth to freedom. Since being traded to the Coyotes, Stempniak has 13 goals…
