  1. Jonathan Toews wins Conn Smythe; Was he the best choice?

    Jun 10, 2010, 12:30 AM EDT

    There was a moment or two during this year’s playoffs when I wondered if Jonathan Toews might ascend another rung on the superstar ladder and join the truly elite players in the hockey world. After he came down to earth a bit during the Cup finals, I’m not sure if he’s quite “there” yet. Instead,…

  2. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: In the end, Patrick Kane was the difference

    Jun 10, 2010, 12:06 AM EDT

    Patrick Kane had just one game-winning goal in the entire postseason for the Chicago Blackhawks, but that’s all they ever really needed from him anyway. Jonathan Toews may have won the Conn Smythe trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs, but in the end it was Patrick Kane that was…

  3. Chicago Blackhawks are your Stanley Cup champions

    Jun 9, 2010, 11:12 PM EDT

    Chicago Blackhawks 4, Philadelphia Flyers 3 (OT) Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup finals, 4-2 It was perhaps the most anti-climatic, oddest ending to a Stanley Cup finals we’ve seen in a very long time. Patrick Kane somehow snuck a wrist shot through Michael Leighton’s pads from parallell with the goal line, and he was the…

  4. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6: Hawks take 3-2 lead, 20 minutes from glory

    Jun 9, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Flyers 2, Chicago Blackhawks 3 Hawks lead series 3-2 I’m going to keep this one very brief, as the game is wearing me out and I have to maintain my strength. The Hawks are outshooting the Flyers 27-13, yet midway through the 2nd period were losing 2-1. They roared back thanks to a Patrick…

  5. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6: Flyers to fight for their lives in OT

    Philadelphia Flyers 3, Chicago Blackhawks 3 Blackhawks lead series 3-3 At this point, it’s almost cliche to talk about the resiliency of the Flyers. But here we are, as they tied up the game late in the 3rd period to send Game 6 into overtime. The Hawks came out initially in the period controlling play,…

  7. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6: All tied up at 1st intermission

    Jun 9, 2010, 8:55 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Flyers 1, Chicago Blackhawks 1 Blackhawks lead series 3-2 Well, the trend of the Flyers starting games poorly continues. The Flyers were outshot 17-7 and their supposed MVP-favorite took two bad penalties in the first period, as Chris Pronger watched the Hawks take a 1-0 lead while he was sitting in the box. To…

  8. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6: Can the Hawks afford to lose tonight?

    Jun 9, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    This is one that the Philadelphia Flyers have to win. Obviously. But is this a game that the Chicago Blackhawks can afford to lose? The first thought is that these teams have been so good at home in this series that it’s very likely the Flyers win tonight. Going to Game 7, however, won’t be…

  9. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6: Who is the new Conn Smythe favorite?

    Jun 9, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Before this series started, I felt that the obvious early choices for the Conn Smythe resided with the Blackhawks in Jonathan Toews and Antti Niemi. After five games, it’s tough to include those two in the conversation. Niemi hasn’t played poorly, but after two strong games to start the finals hasn’t exactly been as good…

  10. 2010 Stanley Cup finals: The Flyers' magical, improbable run

    Jun 9, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    How many people – outside of the Philadelphia Flyers organization, maybe – thought that this team would be two wins away from winning a Cup after they barely eked their way into the playoffs by beating the New York Rangers in a shootout during the final game of the regular season? Seriously, when your postseason…

  11. NHL '11 preview: EA makes faceoffs more realistic with help from Jarret Stoll

    Jun 9, 2010, 2:20 PM EDT

    The “next generation” of Electronic Arts’ NHL series might be subject to a bit of nitpicking, but they’re still among the best hockey video games ever made. With the 2K Series bowing out of competition for at least a year (except on Nintendo’s Wii console), some people were worried that EA’s polygonal puck monopoly would…

  12. City of Glendale grants Ice Edge exclusive negiotating rights for 60 days

    Jun 9, 2010, 1:40 PM EDT

    Perhaps it shouldn’t be a big surprise since the ownership showdown is now really a one-horse race after Jerry Reinsdorf dropped out of the running (at least, if the team is staying in Arizona), but the City of Glendale unanimously approved Ice Edge Holdings for exclusive negotiating rights. TSN provides the news. The Glendale City…

  13. 2010 Stanley Cup finals: Why is home ice such a big advantage?

    Jun 9, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    So far, the Stanley Cup finals has been a “homer” series. That’s a term sports writers use when the home team wins every game. Chicago, in particular, was an amazing 7-1 on the road before the Cup finals. Conversely, the Flyers are a league-best 9-1 – including a seven game winning streak – at the…

  14. 2010 Stanley Cup finals: Choosing Leighton over Boucher (poll results)

    Jun 9, 2010, 11:10 AM EDT

    You’re (probably) aware that the Philadelphia Flyers already made the decision to start Michael Leighton instead of Brian Boucher for what could be their last playoff game of 2009-10 tonight. So, on some level, the “drama” is gone from the debate – although the quiet pro-Boucher minority might come out of the woodwork if Leighton…

  15. Sabres halt contract talks with Zack Kassian

    Jun 8, 2010, 7:32 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    According to The Buffalo News, the Buffalo Sabres have decided to stop talks with 2009 first round draft pick Zack Kassian, after last week’s news broke that Kassian had been arrested for assault outside a bar. Says GM Darcy Regier, courtesy of John Vogl: “It’s obviously not something we condone,” Regier said. “It’s unfortunate. I…

  16. Washington Capitals off-season: Jose Theodore out, but Eric Fehr ponders extension

    Jun 8, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

    Fair or not, the lasting image of Jose Theodore’s stay with the Washington Capitals might be the final playoff game he started against the Montreal Canadiens in which he allowed 2 goals on 2 shots. Friendlier Capitals fans will note that the former Hart Trophy winner was excellent – at times – during the 2009-10…

  17. Finnish hockey fans sacrifice sleep to watch Cup finals

    Jun 8, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    One of the mini-stories of the playoffs, Olympics and recent seasons in general is the odd rise of the Finnish goalie. In the last decade or so, the league’s been treated to the play of Minnesota’s Niklas Backstrom, Calgary’s Miikka Kiprusoff and most recently Boston’s Tuukka Rask and potential Stanley Cup champion in Chicago’s Antti…
