  1. Colin Campbell will never win

    Apr 26, 2010, 3:13 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    We’re getting all sorts of reaction to the Hossa non-suspension, especially since it’s tied directly to the Alex Ovechkin hit from earlier this season. As soon as I saw the hit, I did a literal facepalm, knowing I’d spend the next few days saying the same thing again and again while linking to opinions and…

  2. Shane O'Brien more effective when calm

    Apr 26, 2010, 2:40 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Poor Shane O’Brien. He’s replaced Kyle Wellwood this season as the brunt of any jokes involving the Vancouver Canucks and all he did was gain a few pounds, stay out too late partying and show up late to practices and team meetings. That’s just off the ice. On the ice, he had come under a…

    Comments Off

    Ottawa Senators forward Daniel Alfredsson will have surgery next week to repair a sports hernia, according to Bruce Garrioch. “It’s been getting worse and worse. There’s not a lot of time to really rest. We took care of it. It was still manageable,” said Alfredsson. “I could finish up the year, but I will be…

  4. Dan Hamhuis: NHL decision 'a little bit light'

    Apr 26, 2010, 1:42 PM EDT

    As expected, Dan Hamhuis wasn’t exactly enthralled with the NHL’s decision not to suspend Marian Hossa, telling that the NHL should focus on the hit itself and not on any other factors: “I just personally think it was a little bit light,” Hamhius said on Monday. “It was a dangerous play, and my injuries…

    Red Light District Hockey has a great article today on how Joe Pavelski has stepped up for the San Jose Sharks, while Joe Thornton has once again fallen off the face of the planet once the playoffs began. “There was not going to be any quit on our part,” Pavelski said. “We wanted this one.…

    The Washington Capitals Montreal Canadiens have recalled defensive prospect P.K. Subban from the Hamilton Bulldogs, who will play in tonight’s Game 6 against the Washington Capitals. Subban played in two games this season for the Canadiens, his first professional season in the AHL after being drafted in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. Subban has the…

    Apr 26, 2010, 11:53 AM EDT

    The New Jersey Devils have announced that Jacques Lemaire will retire from coaching. This was the second time around for Lemaire as the Devils coach, after first coaching the team from 1993 to 1998 and won the Stanley Cup with the team in 1995. Lemaire then spent eight seasons with the Minnesota Wild, and while…

    Thomas Vanek, out since being injured in Game 2, is expected to return tonight for the Buffalo Sabres. Just in time, as the Sabres are trying to come back from a 3-1 series deficit and will look to build upon their big Game 5 win on Friday night. Vanek, the leading scorer for the Sabres…

  11. Red Wings sticking with Howard for Game 7

    Apr 26, 2010, 10:05 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s tough to fault Jimmy Howard for yesterday’s Game 6 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes. His team, after starting so strong, wasn’t the same in the final 40 minutes of the game and allowed the Coyotes to once again control play as the game progressed. Plus, it’s not Howard’s fault that the Red Wings failed…

  12. Predators not happy with NHL decision on Hossa

    Apr 26, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Understandably, the Predators aren’t all that happy with the NHL’s decision not to suspend Marian Hossa. After all, it was eerily similar to the hit that landed Alex Ovechkin a two-game suspension earlier in the season. Predators GM Davis Poile was a bit upset himself: “I thought, from our standpoint, it merited a suspension and…

  13. 2010 NHL playoffs: The Sedins clinch the series

    If the Vancouver Canucks are going to break a 2-2 tie in the third period, the game-winning goal to clinch the series…of course it’s going to be a Daniel Sedin goal assisted by brother Henrik.

    Marc Savard is just one test away from returning to game action, and could be on the ice tonight for the Bruins as they try one more time to eliminate the Buffalo Sabres. From Kevin Dupont of the Boston Globe: “If you’re asking me, yeah, I could play,” said Savard, knowing that he gets only…

  16. Vancouver Canucks knock LA Kings out of playoffs

    Apr 26, 2010, 12:03 AM EDT

    The Los Angeles Kings came to play in Game 6. Unfortunately for the young bunch, so did Roberto Luongo – and eventually – so did Daniel Sedin. Vancouver Canucks 4, Los Angeles Kings 2 Canucks win series 4-2 After out-shooting the Canucks 26-11 going into the third period, the Kings lost a little steam and…

  17. Kings dominate, only lead 2-1 past two periods

    Apr 25, 2010, 10:51 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    When a football player has a case of “Fumblitis,” a coach will often make him carry a pigskin around all week to signify how important it is to avoid turnovers. Perhaps the Vancouver Canucks should consider doing the same with Roberto Luongo and his stick? For the second time tonight the all-world goalie allowed a…

    PHT contributor Joe Yerdon had a lengthy post reacting to Colin Campbell’s decision not to suspend Marian Hossa. Here’s an excerpt from a blistering (but clear-headed) piece of criticism from his personal blog, Gross Misconduct Hockey. The glaring lack of consistency as well as the underlying message that’s delivered when first-time offenders get the proverbial slap…

  19. Alex Frolov, LA Kings up 1-0 after 1st

    Apr 25, 2010, 10:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    There are at least two series that just need to go seven games. Hockey fans (though probably not Detroit Red Wings fans) got their wish when Phoenix dominated Detroit to send it to a penultimate finale. It’s unclear if that will happen between Vancouver and Los Angeles, but so far so good for the Kings. Alexander…
