  2. Time to trade Martin Brodeur?

    Apr 23, 2010, 2:40 AM EDT

    Losing in the first round of the playoffs has become an all too common occurrence for the New Jersey Devils the last few seasons. Sure, they make the playoffs and have a great amount of success in the regular season, but bowing out in the first round has been a reality for the Devils the…

    Ottawa and Pittsburgh weren’t content to have just one series in these playoffs see multiple overtimes so they decided to do it themselves tonight. One difference between the first overtime period these teams played and how a lot of overtime periods seem to go is that there were a handful of penalties called. Ottawa had…

    Apr 22, 2010, 10:27 PM EDT

    Ian Laperriere of the Philadelphia Flyers proved again tonight that hockey is not for the faint of heart.

  10. Flyers win, Devils banished to playoff underworld

    Apr 22, 2010, 9:48 PM EDT

    In a series that was overwrought with questionable, often overburdening, officiating to both teams,  the Philadelphia Flyers finished off the New Jersey Devils in five games, defeating them tonight 3-0. For Brian Boucher it was his second career shutout and his first in ten seasons, last doing it against the Buffalo Sabres in 2000. The…

    Keeping you updated on tonight’s desperation Game 5 action, it wouldn’t be the playoffs without a little more goal controversy, right? That’s just what we’ve got in Pittsburgh as the Pens Chris Kunitz’s shot at 18:34 that went past goaltender Pascal Leclaire was initially ruled to not be a goal because the net had come…

    There’s a lot of miscellaneous injury tidbits roaming the Internet today, so let’s take a look at a big chunk of them in quick hits fashion.

  16. Brian Campbell game-time decision for Blackhawks

    Apr 22, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    With the Chicago Blackhawks largely snake-bitten in two of their three games against seventh-seed Nashville, word that Brian Campbell’s return being on the horizon must be welcome news for the offensively challenged team. Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago has the report. Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brian Campbell is listed as a game-time decision Thursday for Game 4…

  17. Joe Thornton: Goat or scapegoat?

    Apr 22, 2010, 3:20 PM EDT

    One of my general rules of life when it comes to less-than-concrete debates is “the truth is somewhere in the middle.” A great example of this logic comes in the case of Joe Thornton’s playoff “choking.” On one hand, I think that he’s the victim of circumstance and his numbers aren’t that bad. Then again, there…

    Comments Off

    The Ottawa Senators will start should-be No. 1 goalie Pascal Leclaire over their actual No. 1 Brian Elliott tonight as the team tries to fight off elimination at Mellon Arena. It’s pretty difficult to look at this as anything but a band-aid solution for the wobbling Senators (and it’s not as if Leclaire was that…
