  1. Save of the Night: Brian Boucher

    Apr 15, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Who would have thought the save of the night would belong to Brian Boucher, on the same night that Evgeni Nabokov, Martin Brodeur, Jimmy Howard and Craig Anderson all played. Not I, for one.

  2. Goal of the Night: Derek Morris

    Apr 15, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

    The game winning goal for the Coyotes, with Derek Morris staring down Jimmy Howard. One on one, and with just a rocket of a shot.

  3. Top 10 hits of 09-10 season: NHL Network's picks

    Now some of you may jokingly call this list the “year’s most egregious examples of charging” or make a high school yearbook-inspired quip such as “most likely to succeed … in giving someone a head injury” but come on. They’re big hits. Aside from the mothers of the guys getting hit, who doesn’t enjoy a…

  4. 2010 NHL playoffs: Upsets galore on opening night

    Apr 15, 2010, 1:00 AM EDT

    The first night of playoff hockey did not disappoint. Three upsets out of four and all games were decided by one goal, in a night that had plenty of hitting, skill, goaltending prowess and even a snake thrown out on the ice. Pittsburgh Penguins 4, Ottawa Senators 5 – Senators lead series 1-0. This was…

  5. 2010 NHL playoffs: We have a snake on the ice

    Apr 14, 2010, 10:54 PM EDT

    Well, it certainly wasn’t the barrage of snakes everyone was hoping for. Nevertheless, the Throw The Snake movement was at least somewhat successful, when after the Coyotes tied the game 1-1 on Keith Yandle’s goal….. ….a lone snake was hurled onto the ice. As far as the actual game goes, the Coyotes are doing exactly…

  6. Marc-Andre Fleury dismal in Penguins' loss

    Apr 14, 2010, 9:45 PM EDT

    There’s no doubt in my mind that the Penguins’ ugly 5-4 loss to the Senators can be placed on Marc-Andre Fleury’s shoulders. Sure, the team didn’t look particularly sharp, but Fleury allowed hare brained goal after hare brained goal, castrating Pittsburgh’s spirits and letting a similarly unimpressive Brian Elliott off the hook. As Brandon said,…

  7. 2010 NHL playoffs: Flyers, Senators threatening to surprise

    The same formula that worked in the first was just as effective in the second for the Senators, who worked overtime to play keep away with the Pittsburgh offense. The Penguins have just 12 shots on goal and Evgeni Malkin, who has two goals, is the only player who seems to have any offensive jump.…

  8. Alain Vigneault not concerned with bedroom behavior

    Sports coaches and players are used to fielding questions. It’s part of the job, and they generally answer the same question again and again, with the same canned answer each time. Every now and then they’ll get asked something intriguing, just completely off the wall it leaves them stunned. Alain Vigneault had one of those…

  9. 2010 NHL playoffs: Sens surprising the Pens in 1st period

    Apr 14, 2010, 7:46 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    When I picked the Senators to beat the Penguins in the first round (one of just two hockey pundits to do so), I based it on a couple of factors. 1) Marc-Andre Fleury has been shaky late in the season. 2) The Penguins have not played consistently the past month. 3) The Senators match up…

  10. Oilers GM Tambellini ready to trade Souray

    Change is coming in Edmonton. Last year it was the coaching staff. This season, general manager Steve Tambellini is promising change on the roster; he started this change at the trade deadline and it will continue this summer. The starting point: disgruntled defenseman Sheldon Souray. “He didn’t help the situation,” said Tambellini. “But I am…

  11. John Stevens for coach of the Thrashers?

    Apr 14, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    With the Atlanta Thrashers moving on without coach John Anderson, and Rick Dudley stepping up become the general manager, we’re already starting to get guesses as to who might take over on the bench. The first name we saw mentioned — in many places — was John Torchetti, the Chicago assistant coach with close ties…

    For a team that’s likely to stay completely intact, but with major personnel questions and salary cap issues, the Calgary Flames sure seem to have a lot of drama surrounding them. Perhaps it’s us, the dirty and evil media that is causing most of the issues. After all, the media was pretty laughed at earlier…

  14. Dave Tippett back in the playoffs with Phoenix

    Apr 14, 2010, 4:05 PM EDT

    have to admit, it’s great to see Dave Tippett succeeding in Phoenix. Tippett is a great coach and a tremendous person off the ice, and he deserved a chance to rebound after being let go in Dallas last summer. Jim Gintonio of AZCentral.com talked with Tippett about turning the Coyotes around in his first season…

    Here are two stories of note from around the league. Brian Campbell might return for first round A broken collarbone (and rib to complete the picture) is a pretty serious injury, but Brian Campbell is a hockey player so he soldiers on. TSN reports that the offensive defenseman is starting to skate again and Chris Kuc tweeted that he…

    With the playoffs just a few hours away, this is surely a great time to be a hockey fan. That being said, there are fourteen teams on the outside looking in. No doubt about it, they must feel more than a little jealous and probably are asking themselves what went wrong (OK, they’re probably asking…

    Jeez, the Washington Capitals are so eager to follow their amazing regular season with a great playoff run that they’re not even waiting until the games start to carry on post-season traditions. You know, like having a bunch of banged up players, for one. Seriously, it seems like the Presidents Trophy winners are already limping…
