  1. Sheldon Souray: "I want a trade."

    Apr 12, 2010, 6:00 AM EDT

    The Edmonton Oilers finished their season in somewhat expected fashion Sunday, falling to Anaheim in the final game of the 7-2. The team looked wholly disinterested and seemed to be more concerned with just finishing the season and heading out to the golf course, then attempting to close out the season with any form of…

  2. NBC's coverage of the Conference quarterfinals

    Apr 11, 2010, 10:59 PM EDT

    NBC will carry two (with possible four) games of the NHL conference quarterfinals, as we finally get a national look at Ryan Miller and the Buffalo Sabres and Ilya Bryzgalov and the Phoenix Coyotes. We could also get a look at the Chicago and Nashville series, if they go past four games. Which they most…

  5. Henrik Sedin wins Art Ross Trophy

    Apr 11, 2010, 9:05 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It was an incredibly exciting finish down the stretch for a couple of teams that didn’t really have much to play for, as Henrik Sedin, Alex Ovechkin and even Sidney Crosby (who made a late charge) battled down to the last game of the season for the NHL scoring lead. In the end, it was…

  7. 2010 NHL Playoffs: Eastern Conference 1st round matchups

    Apr 11, 2010, 8:35 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Thanks to the Devils’ win over the Buffalo Sabres, we can finally be sure about the Eastern Conference playoff seeding. Let’s take a look at the first round. #1 Washington Capitals vs. #8 Montreal Canadiens My goodness, this could be an absolute bloodbath barring a miraculous performance by Montreal goalie Jaroslav Halak. The Canadiens are…

  8. Sidney Crosby, Steven Stamkos tie for Richard trophy

    Apr 11, 2010, 8:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Sidney Crosby and Steven Stamkos have officially tied for the Rocket Richard Trophy with two excellent 51 goal seasons. This marks the second time in NHL history that the goal scoring award will go to more than one player as the 2003-04 season featured a three-way tie between Jarome Iginla, Rick Nash and Ilya Kovalchuk.…

  9. Steven Stamkos ties Sidney Crosby with goal 51

    Apr 11, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    When Alex Ovechkin scored an empty net goal with .2 seconds left in the Capitals’ last regular season against the Penguins, I jokingly asked if he “hooked the tights”* on the Richard trophy. * – This is a professional wrestling reference. Yes, I am lame. Anyway, there’s more than a little humor to the fact…

  10. Flyers end Rangers' season via shootout

    Apr 11, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Let me say this: there could not be a funnier (or more fitting) way for the New York Rangers’ season to end than with Olli Jokinen failing. Jokinen is a symbol of all that is wrong with the team. Sure, I actually liked the idea of Glen Sather trading for Jokinen for a simple reason:…

  11. Crosby pulls ahead in Richard race

    Apr 11, 2010, 6:10 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Just a quick update: Sidney Crosby scored a beautiful breakaway goal – his second of the game – to take the goal scoring lead over Alex Ovechkin and Steven Stamkos. That makes it number 51 for the league’s golden boy, placing him in front of his two net filling colleagues. Crosby will finish ahead of his…

    With Detroit beating the Chicago Blackhawks in overtime, and the Los Angeles Kings coming back against Colorado, we now have our Western Conference matchups all set. #1 San Jose Sharks vs. #8 Colorado AvalancheThis is a great matchup for the Avalanche, who have Craig Anderson to fall back on against a Sharks team that has…

  13. Flyers 1, Rangers 1; Headed to overtime

    Apr 11, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    I’ll say it right now. A game with this much on the line should never be decided by a shootout. But there’s a good chance that will happen, and two team’s fate will be decided by a skills competition. Sure, we’ll have the five minute overtime, but that’s not anywhere near enough. 1-1 heading into…

  14. Flyers 1, Rangers 1; Carle ties it up on PP

    Apr 11, 2010, 5:08 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Now we have a hockey game. The Rangers mishandled the puck at center ice, and the Flyers executed a perfect transition from defense to offense as they crashed the net while on the power play. Lundqvist made two great saves but couldn’t control the rebound, and Matt Carle was able to backhand the rebound over…

  15. Flyers 0, Rangers 1; Now this is entertainment?

    Apr 11, 2010, 4:52 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    This hasn’t exactly been the most entertaining game between two teams fighting for their season, but at least the intensity has been ratcheted up a bit. If you a number of tripping, hooking and roughing penalties entertaining, so we get to see these powerful power plays in action. It’s actually going a bit like expected.…

  17. Bruins blank Ovechkin, beat Capitals 4-3 in SO

    Apr 11, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The story of this game was supposed to be about Alex Ovechkin’s race for the Rocket Richard and Art Ross trophies. After all, the two teams had nothing to play for; win or lose the Capitals would remain the East’s top seed and the Bruins are still in the sixth spot. Yet, instead of being…

  18. Jody Shelley(!) gives Rangers 1-0 lead

    Apr 11, 2010, 3:17 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    As the Comcast Sportsnet announcers pointed out, Jody Shelley went 62 games without a goal but now has a goal in two consecutive games. Oh, and those goals are coming in absolutely the most important contests the Rangers have played in the 2009-10 season. He has three points in his last five games, accounting for…
