  1. Matt Cooke, Penguins force overtime

    Apr 24, 2010, 9:55 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    With two goals in the third period, the Pittsburgh Penguins tied the Ottawa Senators to send Game 6 into overtime. It’s been an odd game so far as each period had a goal (or should I say, non-goal) that caused controversy. The first period saw a Penguins non-goal as Pascal Leclaire’s black pads made it…

    The NHL announced the start times for Game 6 of Chicago at Nashville (the Blackhawks lead that series 3-2) and, if necessary, Game 7 of Colorado at San Jose (the Sharks lead the series 3-2).

  4. Sidney Crosby avoids injury scare, Sens up 2-0

    Apr 24, 2010, 8:18 PM EDT

    Sidney Crosby was shaken up after falling into Pascal Leclaire early in the second period. Anton Volchenkov pushed Crosby into his goalie and Crosby seemed to hurt his wrist. It’s unclear if he suffered a cut or just fell awkwardly on his hand. Reports from sources including Scott Burnside indicate that Crosby is at least…

    The Ottawa Senators began the game with such a burst I couldn’t help but ask: “Are the Penguins receiving a visit from The Ghost of Keith Primeau?”* Ottawa Senators 1, Pittsburgh Penguins 0 Penguins lead series 3-2 For newer hockey fans (or those with hazy memories), then-Flyers forward Primeau scored an overtime game winning goal…

  8. Hossa, Kane go from goats to heroes in Chicago's OT win

    Apr 24, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Sports writers love to talk about teams or players being “haunted” by a mistake. Sometimes it’s a single gaffe that tarnishes a great player’s legacy (see: Buckner, Bill). Other times it could be a questionable call by a referee or an epic brain fart. Still, few five-minute powerplays will ever leave its beneficiaries as cold…

  10. Kane sends it to OT, Hossa gets 5 minute major

    Apr 24, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

    Maybe Patrick Kane gained some last minute heroism through Zach Parise osmosis. The American-born winger scored a goal when the Blackhawks needed it the most, tying the game 5-5 with about 14 seconds left. The situation looked dire for the Blackhawks in the final minute. Marian Hossa pushed Predators defenseman at the exact worst moment,…

    Martin Erat silenced the once-booming United Center with two goals as the Nashville Predators administered the rope-a-dope on a stunned Chicago Blackhawks team. As of this writing, the Predators are up 4-3 with about 5:30 left in the third period. Mental mistakes continue to beguile Chicago. A powerplay turnover lead to a Joel Ward shorthanded…

    By all intents and purposes, this game should be over. Yet here we are, still a one goal game and somehow the Predators find themselves down just one goal after 40 minutes of play. After a penalty-free first period, the referees decided they needed to make up for lost time. Calling anything minor transgression they…

  13. Hawks lead Predators 2-1 at 1st intermission

    Apr 24, 2010, 4:02 PM EDT

    If the Predators hoped to continue to keep up with the Blackhawks in this series, with a great chance to take a surprising 3-2 series lead, they’d need to avoid getting in a run and gun contest with one of the NHL’s best offenses. Unfortunately in the first period, the Predators weren’t able to follow…

    Expect Jordin Tootoo to be on the ice for the Predators today against the Blackhawks, but we’ll have to wait until just before game time to know if leading scorer Patric Hornqvist will be available. Tootoo received 45 stitches and required some plastic surgery to repair a facial injury after a taking a puck off…
