  1. 2010 NHL playoffs: Previews for tonight's games

    May 5, 2010, 6:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    With San Jose’s defeat of Detroit last night, we currently have two series that could end in a sweep. Will Boston put the Flyers in a full nelson and really take hold of the series? Which of the Canucks or Blackhawks will give their team a one-game advantage? Let’s take a look at the two…

  2. Chicago looking forward to Vancouver's Green Men

    May 5, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    The Green Men, who have gained national notoriety for their antics outside the penalty box in Vancouver, will be on hand again in an attempt to agitate any Blackhawks player who makes their way to the sin bin. While we haven’t seen much actual response from the players in the box, it will be interesting…

  3. "Too many men" for Sharks not a big deal

    May 5, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    There’s a screencap making the rounds today that shows seven men on the ice for the Sharks at the moment when Patrick Marleau was scoring the winning goal in overtime last night against the Detroit Red Wings. Here’s a link to the screencap, courtesy of Greg Wyshynski. What it shows is two Sharks players looking…

  4. Richards and Bergeron battling in faceoff circle

    May 5, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    A lot of the attention in the series between the Flyers and Bruins has been on the growing animosity between Dan Carcillo and Marc Savard. Yet in any long series there are other matchups and battles that become more intriguing each game, and currently we have one that’s building between Patrice Bergeron and Mike Richards…

  5. Olli Jokinen to the KHL?

    May 5, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    Alessandro Rosso, a blogger and reporter covering Russian hockey for Hockey’s Future (among others) has tweeted today that Olli Jokinen will sign with Dinamo Minsk of the KHL. What’s interesting is that Jokinen isn’t exactly a Russian player headed back to play in his home country, but a talented European player that has decided against…

  6. More lineup changes for Chicago

    May 5, 2010, 3:08 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Joel Quenneville made a couple of subtle but effective lineup changes for Game 2, as the Hawks evened up the series against the Canucks behind a more aggressive and physical approach. With Chicago wanting to keep that momentum and hopefully build upon it, it seems one more could be on the way. Troy Brouwer hasn’t…

  7. Staal practices, closer to returning

    May 5, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    Jordan Staal may not play in Game 4 tomorrow in Montreal, but he’s getting ever closer to doing what many (including myself) would be impossible and returning in time to face the Canadiens in the second round. Staal was initially thought to be out for the playoffs when it was reported he had surgery to…

  8. Savard not phased by Carcillo's chatter

    May 5, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    You knew there was going to be some fireworks between the Flyers and Bruins. It was inevitable. I never would have guessed that Marc Savard would be at the center of it. As the series heads back to Philadelphia Dan Carcillo is vowing to keep the pressure on Savard, aiming to match up with him…

  9. These aren't the Sharks of years past

    May 5, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Well, these certainly aren’t the San Jose Sharks we were all laughing at after Dan Boyle’s own goal doomed them in overtime in the first round. Since then, they’ve become a much more well-rounded, balanced, confident and dangerous team. After last night’s big comeback win, the Sharks are now just one win away from the…

  10. O'Brien vows Canucks will be more aggressive

    May 5, 2010, 11:57 AM EDT

    While Shane O’Brien has certainly been the brunt of a number of jokes lately, he’s been able to step up and become one of the vocal leaders on the team in the playoffs. The coaches weren’t too pleased with some of his antics against the Kings, so he toned down his emotions and started playing…

  11. Capitals upset they let the city down

    May 5, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    You could see it on the faces of the players, coaches and fans. After the Game 7 loss to the Canadiens it wasn’t just disappointment the team and fans felt, it was utter dejection. The Washington D.C. area hasn’t had that great of a time in the sports world lately, and the local fans had…

  13. Video: Two reviewed goals in Detroit

    May 5, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    In last night’s Detroit and San Jose game, there were not one but two Red Wings goals reviewed in the first period. I was away from the computer while the game was played live so I was unable to get instant live reaction from Red Wings fans. I think even the most staunch of Red…

  14. 2010 NHL Playoffs: Fleury's flurry of saves

    May 5, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Highlights of Marc-Andre Fleury’s big night:

  15. Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau help Sharks steal game 3

    May 4, 2010, 11:25 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Red Wings looked like they were going to get right back in the mix in their series with the San Jose Sharks, holding a 3-1 lead going into the third period. Unfortunately, they couldn’t contain the supposed “chokers” from California … particularly that totally not clutch Joe Thornton. San Jose Sharks 4, Detroit Red Wings…

  16. Evgeni Malkin, Marc-Andre Fleury shine in 2-0 Pens win

    May 4, 2010, 10:00 PM EDT

    The Montreal Canadiens are living and dying by Jaroslav Halak’s game netminding and timely counter-punching goals. Tonight, they died.  Evgeni Malkin and Marc-Andre Fleury made the Habs pay for their trapping ways tonight, grinding out a 2-0 victory to take Game 3 in Montreal. Pittsburgh Penguins 2, Montreal Canadiens 0 Penguins lead series 2-1 While I…

  17. Calls start to go Detroit's way; Wings up 2-1, Habs-Pens still 0-0

    May 4, 2010, 8:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    All of a sudden, officiating luck is starting to go Detroit’s way. Shortly after having a potential 1-0 lead erased by video review, the VHS gods smiled upon Tomas Holmstrom’s genuine 1-0 tally. Later in the first period, the Red Wings benefited from a tough call on the Sharks as Logan Couture was (perhaps incorrectly)…

  18. Disallowed Red Wings goal brings out the foil, both games 0-0

    May 4, 2010, 8:04 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    We’re about 10 minutes through Sharks-Red Wings in Detroit right now and the Tin Foil Hats might just enter the building (figuratively, since fans were caught by FS Detroit’s cameras to be wearing exactly those before the game). After an extensive video review, a would-be first goal of the game for Henrik Zetterberg was called…

  19. Kostitsyn brothers struggle; Hockey's funniest sibling combos

    May 4, 2010, 7:15 PM EDT

    In the 2007-08 season, the Kostitsyn brothers burst onto the NHL scene and looked like they might be the non-twin answer to the Sedins before long. Since that nice introduction into the league, the two have struggled with inconsistency, scandal and bad vibes all around. The Canadian Press sets the scene around the most mercurial…

    Tonight’s two games are only a half-hour apart, so I thought it would be prudent to discuss them together here. Let’s take a look at what’s at stake in each match. Pittsburgh Penguins at Montreal Canadiens 7:00 PM ET (Versus, CBC) Series tied 1-1 When Sidney Crosby was an awkward little Nova Scotia native, his favorite…
