    Comments Off

    The Carolina Hurricanes look like they might join the group of NHL teams looking for new ownership – at least in some form. The Triangle Business Journal reports that Canes owner Peter Karmanos hired Allen & Co. (the group that advised in the sale of sports teams such as the Pittsburgh Penguins) to sell 50…

  2. What you might have missed: Hawks sweep, Czechs gold, Spitfires win Memorial Cup

    May 24, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    One could make a strong argument that yesterday was the biggest day of hockey – beyond just the NHL – in all of 2010. Seriously, there were some huge games played on a world scale Sunday. In case you missed the three biggest outcomes, here’s a summary of the action, including PHT takes on each…

  3. Controversy surrounding Flyers' sandy skate issues boils over

    May 24, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    The reflexive response is to attach “-Gate” to any controversy (although I wonder what would happen if the Dallas Stars were involved … we already have “Stargate” after all) but perhaps this Flyers-Habs dilemma deserves a couple extra syllables. Maybe we should refer to it as “Sand-on-the-Skategate” instead? Or perhaps the “Great Sandy Skate Debate”?…

  6. Taylor Hall, Windsor Spitfires win Memorial Cup by beating Brandon Wheat Kings 9-1

    May 23, 2010, 10:45 PM EDT

    The Windsor Spitfires became one of only eight teams to win back-to-back Memorial Cup tonight, destroying the Brandon Wheat Kings 9-1. Considering the fact that probable No. 1 pick Taylor Hall became the first player to ever win back-to-back tournament MVPs, you have to wonder if – somewhere – the Edmonton Oilers are smiling. Allan…

  7. Trip to Stanley Cup finals helps Duncan Keith cope with loss of 7 teeth

    May 23, 2010, 9:50 PM EDT

    Duncan Keith lost seven teeth in this afternoon’s game between the San Jose Sharks and Chicago Blackhawks, but advancing to the Stanley Cup Finals must numb some of that pain.

    May 23, 2010, 9:10 PM EDT

    Alex Ovechkin and Team Russia’s year of frustration continued today as the upstart Czech Republic team shocked them 2-1 to win the gold medal in the 2010 IIHF World Championships. The Czech Republic was not expected to have so much success. After all, their biggest name Jaromir Jagr almost seemed to wave a white flag…

  9. Sharks didn't choke, but is this still the end of an era?

    May 23, 2010, 8:20 PM EDT

    The San Jose Sharks didn’t lose in the first round this year. This wasn’t a situation in which they lost to a Cinderella team, either. Instead it was the No. 2 seed Chicago Blackhawks, a squad that barely fell short of taking the top seed from them in the regular season. The higher level of…

  14. Video: Toronto reviews Chicago Blackhawks goal

    May 23, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    Todd McLellan was intensely angry over this call, when Toronto overturned a non-goal call on the ice. Video review showed that the puck went through Evgeni Nabokov’s pads and completely over the goal line before being swept away by Douglas Murray of the Sharks. You decide: good call or not? I don’t see how it…

  15. Texas Stars have better attendance than Hamilton Bulldogs

    May 23, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

    Last season, the Dallas Stars operated without an AHL affiliate while waiting a year for their new, local affiliate to get up and running. The Texas Stars, based out of Austin, kicked off their inaugural season in September, 2009 and instantly became a hit with the locals. What’s that? Yes, you read that right; AHL…

  16. Canadiens claim skate issues of their own

    May 23, 2010, 1:59 PM EDT

    The Montreal Canadiens are denying any sort of sabotage, although I doubt anyone actually thought that the team itself had something to do with the ‘sand’ that was on the rubber mats outside the Flyers locker room. Furthermore, coach Jacques Martin claims his team had their own issues. From Dave Stubbs of Habs Inside/Out: “Both…
