  1. Frozen Four: Wisconsin crushes RIT 8-1

    Apr 8, 2010, 7:50 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Wisconsin Badgers are headed to the National Championship game on the strength of defense, patience, offensive skill and some brutal frustration from the RIT Tigers as Wisconsin took out RIT 8-1 in the first semifinal game of the 2010 Frozen Four. Wisconsin took the steam out of RIT almost immediately as John Mitchell scored…

  2. Who is the most frustrating Florida Panther?

    Apr 8, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Every now and then, Pro Hockey Talk will ask for insight from some of the best team bloggers out there. For this feature, we asked a simple question: “Who is your team’s most frustrating player?” Just for fun, I decided to throw my guess in the hat, too. First, here is my guess for Florida.…

  3. Memories of Mike Modano

    Apr 8, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    I’m not going to do an exact retrospective on Mike Modano’s great career, since we’re not even certain he’s retiring. If and when he announces his retirement this summer, then we’ll take a look at his great numbers and career accomplishments. For now, I’m just going to talk about Mike Modano and my memories of…

  4. Tonight's playoff scenarios

    Apr 8, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It seems like playoff scenarios are changing on a day-to-day basis this week since there’s such little separation between certain teams. Every point seems precious. (Or, useless, if you’re the home-ice clinching Washington Capitals or a member of the growing legion of teams waiting to go on vacation.) We’ll try to keep you up-to-date with…

  5. NHLN: Top 5 comebacks of the season

    Apr 8, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    NHL Network continues its countdowns of the best of the season, with the top five comebacks from this year. It really doesn’t feel like the season should be over yet. Playoffs, here we come.

  6. Should Pronger, Richards play good cop-bad cop?

    Apr 8, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It always amuses me when writers come up with a cockamamie excuse to explain a team’s struggles. The Philadelphia Flyers, in particular, have dealt with strange (but sometimes one must wonder, truthful) rumors about infidelity and in-fighting in their locker room. Perhaps more down-to-earth excuses like “shabby goaltending” and “talent just a few strides behind…

  7. The case for Alex Ovechkin for the Hart Trophy

    Apr 8, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    As we near the end of the season, we’re going to take a look at who we think should be three finalists for the Hart, Norris and Calder Trophies, making arguments for each. We start with the Hart Trophy, given to the NHL’s Most Valuable Player. Next up: Alex Ovechkin.  Why he deserves it: He’s…

  8. Ice Edge might back out of Coyotes bidding

    Apr 8, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Ice Edge Holdings has been quick to puff out its chest when trying to prove their ability to afford the Phoenix Coyotes, but a recent setback might have them backing out altogether. Ice Edge CEO Daryl Jones explained to the Vancouver Sun why the group might pull out of the negotiations. “The city may leave us no…

  9. What's next for the Calgary Flames?

    Apr 8, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    What an incredibly disappointing season for the Calgary Flames. What has to be most frustrating is how the team completely sold out for this one season, making several big moves in an attempt to spark any sort of secondary scoring, is that nothing seemed to work. Nearly every move made has handcuffed the team for…

  10. Mark Recchi: Approaching Chelios territory?

    Apr 8, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Mark Recchi is eternal. Mark Recchi wants to enter Chris Chelios Territory. Seriously, the guy just won’t retire. He defiantly takes off his helmet to reveal his time dishonored hairline. He remains a respectably productive point producer as his drop from 61 points last season to 42 this year probably has as much to do…

  11. Jamie Langenbrunner 'mystery' solved

    Apr 8, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    The Jamie Langenbrunner speculation can finally come to an end. He wasn’t abducted by aliens. There is no secret pregnant girlfriend. Elvis did not leave or enter the building. Instead, Langenbrunner was oddly silent for the simplest reason: he was angry that Jacques Lemaire decided to sit him out for Saturday’s game against the Carolina…

New Jersey high school hockey teams finally finish game that was 21 years in the making Puck Daddy’s Sean Leahy shares this great story of two New Jersey-area high school hockey teams who finally “played” a game that was originally intended to be finished…

  14. Pat Burns checks into hospital

    Apr 8, 2010, 10:20 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    I’ve said my piece about allowing Pat Burns into the Hall of Fame early (at least, if voters deem him worthy in the first place) because it always seems extra-tragic when someone is inducted posthumously. I don’t think I’m the only person who was hoping that such a thought would not come to the forefront…

  15. Penguins to play last regular season game at Igloo

    Apr 8, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Since the Pittsburgh Penguins clinched a playoff berth quite some time ago, it’s clear that tonight’s game won’t be the last meaningful hockey game ever played in crusty old Mellon Arena. Still, it’s obvious that the Igloo’s days are numbered. Tonight’s game against the New York Islanders marks the final regular season the Penguins will…

  16. Frozen Four preview

    Apr 8, 2010, 9:15 AM EDT

    When last we left you two weeks ago, we were wondering how East Region #4 seed RIT  managed to blow through to the semis like it was no big deal while the other three top seeds (Boston College, Wisconsin, and Miami) powered through their regions to reach the Frozen Four at Ford Field in Detroit.…

    The Nashville Predators and Phoenix Coyotes faced off last night in what could be a first round primer. The Predators weren’t just playing to test their merit against a potential playoff opponent, they were trying to hold off those teams behind them. A win was needed, especially if Detroit won (which they did) and after…

  20. Chicago Blackhawks take No. 1 spot in West

    Apr 7, 2010, 11:23 PM EDT

    With two games to go in the 2009-2010 regular season, the Chicago Blackhawks have taken over the number one seed in the Western conference after tonight’s 6-5 win over the St. Louis Blues. It was closer than it should have been, however, as the Blues stormed back with four unanswered goals to give the Hawks…
