  1. Metropolit close to returning for Canadiens

    Apr 18, 2010, 10:00 PM EDT

    With the series headed back to Montreal tied a one apiece, the Habs could be getting a valuable injection of veteran experience as Glen Metropolit prepares to return from a shoulder injury. The 35-year old forward practiced hard today, and there’s a chance he could return for tomorrow’s game 3. “I feel good,” he told…

  2. 2010 NHL playoffs: Carcillo scores in OT

    Three games down, two to go. We’ll be hit with the same problem as before as the Predators and Blackhawks game will be on at the same time as Sharks and Avalanche, which is unfortunate. We’ll do our best. Game 3: Final – Philadelphia Flyers 3, New Jesey Devils 2 (OT) Flyers lead series 2-1…

  3. Dany Heatley out for game 3 against Avs, 'day-to-day'

    Apr 18, 2010, 9:15 PM EDT

     I love nearly everything there is when it comes to playoff hockey. Nearly. What I don’t love, and what has frustrated me for years, is the lack of disclosure when it comes to injuries. It’s not changing anytime soon, so no use crying now. As it is, it’s being reported that Dany Heatley will miss…

  4. Ovechkin says Halak is feeling the pressure

    Apr 18, 2010, 8:49 PM EDT

    The Capitals and Canadiens series has become a much more interesting contest than I thought it could be, although I shouldn’t be surprised when Alex Ovechkin and the Habs are in a seven game series. Now there’s some talk going back and forth, although it doesn’t seem to be anything that out of the ordinary.…

  6. 2010 NHL playoffs: Crosby gives Pens 3- 1 lead

    We’ll be doing our best to update you on all of tonight’s action. The only downside of playoff hockey, especially in the first round, is that there is inevitably going to be multiple games on at the same time. This makes watching all the games a bit difficult, and tonight is no exception. As such,…

  7. Coyotes beat Red Wings 4-2, take 2-1 series lead

    NBC Playoff Coverage Phoenix Coyotes 4, Red Wings 2, Coyotes lead series 2-1 (Obviously, this photo isn’t from today’s game but it’s so worth it. Look at the women’s facial expressions. That’s classic, folks.) Perhaps Sami Lepisto’s goal 29 seconds into the first period symbolized what the Phoenix Coyotes are and the Detroit Red Wings…

  8. NBC Playoffs Chat: Coyotes-Red Wings Game 3

  9. Three goals in no time; Phoenix up 4-2

    Apr 18, 2010, 5:25 PM EDT

    Update: Well, apparently the Coyotes could respond. Just as I published the post when it was 3-2, the Coyotes scored another goal. It’s now 4-2 with 7:31 left in a game that finally fits the bizarre profile of its predecessors. Strange series so far … *** Now that was a beautiful goal. Radim Vrbata and…

  10. Wojtek Wolski makes it 2-1 Coyotes

    Apr 18, 2010, 4:48 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Wojtek Wolski: difficult to spell, harder to stop. He came to Phoenix via a trade to Colorado and it seems as if both players (him and Peter Mueller, who was great before he suffered a head injury thanks to a Rob Blake hit) are benefiting from the change of scenery. Wolski scored a go-ahead goal…

  11. Jordan Leopold out for game 4, possibly longer?

    Apr 18, 2010, 4:32 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Pittsburgh Penguins could potentially be without defenseman Jordan Leopold for a significant amount of time, as it was reported today that Leopold had not made the trip to Ottawa and would not be available for game 4 on Tuesday night between the Penguins and Senators. He’s still being evaluated for his concussion, which is…

  12. Filppula ties it on the PP, 1-1

    Apr 18, 2010, 3:47 PM EDT

    The Red Wings have certainly responded after the opening-minute goal by the Coyotes, and have been placing to steadily increasing pressure on the Coyotes as the first period has progressed. It paid off when Valterri Filppula snuck a rebound shot short side on Bryzgalov on the power play. Ilya Bryzgalov has looked a bit shaky…

  13. Sami Lepisto gives Phoenix early 1-0 lead

    Apr 18, 2010, 3:20 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Wow, that was fast. Last time NBC covered a Red Wings game, you could barely sit down before Chris Osgood allowed a Dan Carcillo goal. This time around, the goalie was Jimmy Howard but that hardly seemed to matter. Sami Lepisto scored the goal as there was a mad scramble in front of Howard. The…

  14. What they're saying about Phoenix-Detroit

    Apr 18, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    The Red Wings-Coyotes series has been among the best of the playoffs so far, no doubt about it. NBC is carrying the series’ debut in the Motor City at 3:00 pm ET today. To get you revved up, we’re providing plenty of coverage, a live chat during the game and more. If your appetites are…

  15. Will 'nice guy' Shane Doan finish first, for once?

    NBC Playoff Coverage Game 3: Phoenix Coyotes at Detroit Red Wings, series tied 1-1 Live on NBC at 3:00 PM ET Often sportswriters will decry a younger athlete’s “lack of effort” and say that they’re guilty of assuming that they’ll be in a championship situation every year. I wonder how that kind of talk would…

  16. Retirement for Nicklas Lidstrom, Tomas Holmstrom?

    NBC Playoff Coverage Game 3: Phoenix Coyotes at Detroit Red Wings, Series tied 1-1 Live on NBC at 3:00 PM ET It didn’t really hit me until today, but really, the Detroit Red Wings are a salary cap puzzle after this season. For instance: they only have six forwards (currently playing) under contract next season;…

  17. Who could be the Flyers' 10-11 goalie?

    Apr 18, 2010, 11:40 AM EDT

    Brian Boucher has been a nice story in this year’s playoffs so far, but it doesn’t camouflage the fact that the Philadelphia Flyers need stability – or really, credibility – in net. Too many years they’ve allowed their goalie position to be an Unsolved Mystery. Far too many times I’m able to trot out my “Philadelphia is…
