  1. Flyers and Bruins headed to overtime 4-4

    May 7, 2010, 9:46 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Throughout the entire night the vibe coming from the fans in Philadelphia felt like they were waiting for something awful to happen to the Flyers all night. The only time the fans were at all excited came after Claude Giroux’s goal that made it 3-1.  Heading into the third period with a 3-2 lead, that…

  2. Flyers lead Bruins 3-2 after two periods in Game 4

    May 7, 2010, 8:49 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    You would think that having a 3-2 lead after two periods of play would give the Philadelphia Flyers some good momentum heading towards the third period. After all, getting another goal from playoff stud Claude Giroux and a slapshot blast from Chris Pronger are signs that things are going along smoothly for a desperate team.…

  3. Bruins-Flyers tied after first in Game 4

    May 7, 2010, 8:02 PM EDT

    The Flyers entered tonight’s Game 4 against the Bruins on the brink of elimination and got off to a start they would’ve liked to avoid. The seemingly ageless Mark Recchi got the Bruins on the board first at 15:37 of the first and there’s no truth the rumor that he told Brian Boucher to get…

  4. Mainstream columnist slams NHL, mockery follows

    Stop me if you’ve read a piece like this before. The NHL playoffs have actually been outstanding to watch. They’ve outdone the NBA’s playoffs for drama and in some ways are better than the early rounds of last year’s NFL postseason. Plus, as far as we know, hockey doesn’t have its own version of troglodytic…

  5. Bloggers find logos for Edmonton Oilers' new AHL team, the OKC Barons

    Long before I ever contemplated writing about hockey, I went to an Oklahoma City Blazers hockey game. It was a fantastic experience as the hockey was fun and violent (and the opposing team’s goalie gave us the finger! Hooray!). While I couldn’t imagine professional sports coming to that area, I left impressed by the veracity…

  6. Chicago's Burish calls Vancouver's Burrows, O'Brien 'clowns'

    May 7, 2010, 4:50 PM EDT

    The rivalry between the Chicago Blackhawks and Vancouver Canucks keeps building. As much as modern athletes tend to get along with each other these days, it’s hard to find tension as legitimate as the beef between these two teams.  So it’s not too surprising that Chicago tough guy Adam Burish shared some harsh words for…

  7. Would a Bruins-Habs series be bad for hockey?

    May 7, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

    Look, I don’t bring up this question because I “hate” the Boston Bruins or the Montreal Canadiens. In fact, I’m a real sucker for those two teams. Their histories are Bill Gates-rich, with great fans, a fantastic rivalry and some sexy uniforms to boot. That doesn’t change the fact that I had horrible, horrible visions…

  8. The risks (and rewards) of emptying the net

    May 7, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    It’s depressing to watch a goal go into your favorite team’s empty net. Up until that point, you could hope against hope that your team would magically end up scoring during that frantic last minute. When it does, it’s pure magic. Just look at Zach Parise’s last minute goal in the Olympic gold medal game. …

  9. Winnipeg hoping Coyotes will jet back into town

    Could the Winnipeg Jets be back again? It’s a question that circulated around the hockey world earlier this year and the recent headlines indicating difficulties in the sale of the Phoenix Coyotes to Jerry Reinsdorf caused them to sprout up yet again. TSN’s Darren Dreger has more. Winnipeg will soon find out whether or not the…

  10. Injury Reports: Simon Gagne, Bill Guerin could be back

    Let’s take a look at injury news from around the NHL today. Simon Gagne a game-time decision tonight With the Boston Bruins dropping like flies, you never know if the Philadelphia Flyers might have a chance to make a comeback. Sure, it’s unlikely, but you never know. Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Simon…

  11. Examining Sidney Crosby's struggles

    May 7, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    During the Ottawa Senators series, Sidney Crosby was making a case for being the consensus greatest player in the hockey world. With an absurd 14 points in only 5 games, it looked like he was going to threaten Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux for all-time playoff performances. It only seems fair, then, that the deification…

  12. It didn't take long for Sharks 'choking' talk to return

    May 7, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    If any team can relate to the “What have you done for me lately?” feeling, it’s the San Jose Sharks. They bounced back from a heartbreaking loss against the Colorado Avalanche by never losing another game in the series. After going up 2-0 at home against Detroit, the Sharks managed to snatch Game 3 in…

  13. Poll: How much is Jaroslav Halak worth?

    May 7, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    It’s not exactly as if Jaroslav Halak was a face in the crowd before the playoffs started. The impressive Slovak goalie sported an outstanding 92.4 save percentage and wrestled the Canadiens’ starting job from should-be savior Carey Price this season. Still, on a league-wide scale, there’s little doubt that this post-season run put him on…

  14. 2010 NHL playoffs: Franzen's four goal feat

    May 7, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    With Pavel Datsyuk hobbled and Henrik Zetterberg focusing most of his energy on stopping Sidney Crosby, the Detroit Red Wing who struck The Fear of God into me last Stanley Cup Finals was Johan Franzen. Simply put, the man has ridiculous hands and – when he’s on his game – little fear of using them…

  15. 2010 NHL Playoffs: Halak thwarts Malkin

    May 7, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    The Save of the Night seemingly had to come from Pittsburgh-Montreal merely because of the fact that Detroit beat San Jose by about a bijillion (OK, six) goals. With the Canadiens trapping the Penguins’ attack into submission, it seemed like this game would finish without a truly dangerous moment. That was until Evgeni Malkin managed to…

  16. Wings to stay at Joe Louis at least one more year

    While the Detroit Red Wings lease at Joe Louis Arena is expiring soon, Wings owner Mike Ilitch decided to let folks know that the Wings will stay at the Joe for the time being. “They’ll probably play their games at the Joe, because, you know, it takes time to get things done,” Ilitch said. “Things…

  17. Coyotes sale potentially in big trouble

    May 6, 2010, 11:51 PM EDT

    The NHL playoffs were moving along a little too smoothly to not have a bombshell be dropped right in the middle of everything. The sale of the Phoenix Coyotes has hit yet another snag and this time it’s a big one. Sources tell TSN the city of Glendale has asked Ice Edge Holdings to return…

  18. Franzen's six point night leads Wings to 7-1 win

    May 6, 2010, 10:52 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    If nothing else,  tonight’s Wings-Sharks games will be remembered for the scoring touch of Detroit’s “Mule.” Johan Franzen’s four goals and six points lead the way to help give Detroit a 7-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks in Game 4. It was very nearly a five goal effort for Franzen but Detroit’s first goal,…

  19. Habs comeback to stun Pens, tie series

    May 6, 2010, 10:20 PM EDT

    The Montreal Canadiens headed into the third period of Game 4 against the Pittsburgh Penguins needing to find some offense trailing 2-1 and being outshot 25-9 after two periods. They may not have been pretty goals and they may not have gone in off their own sticks or skates, but the Canadiens got the offense…
