  1. Blues' Jackman played through injury for 2 weeks

    Apr 5, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Last week Chris Mason called out a number of his teammates for a lack of effort during a third period collapse against the Nashville Predators. Apparently Blues fans focused in on Barret Jackman as the object of their hate and discontent. When the home crowd openly cheered after finding out he would be scratched against…

  2. Mueller injured after 'questionable' hit by Blake

    Apr 5, 2010, 9:15 AM EDT

    [Updated: Check after the jump for screen caps of the hit] The big Colorado Avalanche victory last night over the San Jose Sharks — in which the Avs came back from a two-goal deficit, allowed two late goals and then won in overtime — is tainted a bit as the team waits on word on…

    Finally, finally we get some teams taking control of their playoff destiny and rising to the occasion to win a big game. The Philadelphia Flyers kept their playoff dreams alive with a big home win over the Detroit Red Wings (can we say they’re in a slump now, that’s two losses in a row for…

  7. LA Kings clinch first playoff berth since '02

    Apr 4, 2010, 6:25 PM EDT

    It’s official: the Los Angeles Kings will be in the playoffs for the first time since 2002. The Chicago Blackhawks – a team they may end up facing in the first round – actually clinched it for them by beating the Calgary Flames 4-1 today. So any fears that the Kings’ media staff jinxed them…

  8. Chicago Blackhawks clinch Central division title

    My guess is that Blackhawk fans were cheering about more than just a free Egg McMuffin this afternoon. Thanks to Detroit’s loss, Chicago is now officially the 2009-10 Central division champions. The Blackhawks’ official site features some really interesting tidbits that highlight the fact that a) this is one of the best seasons the team ever…

  9. Carcillo's return lifts Flyers past Red Wings, 4-3

    Apr 4, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    After being suspended two games for an “unintentional” high stick, it was decided that perhaps Dan Carcillo would be a snappy choice to start the game. It paid off instantly, and set the tone for the rest of a very, very big win for the Philadelphia Flyers. Carcillo scored just 17 seconds into the first…

    Join us at Noon EDT for our live chat for today’s game. Joe Yerdon will be leading the chat, and I’ll be chiming in from the press box at Wachovia Center. It’s a big game for the Flyers today, and one could say the season is on the line. Before we chat you up, check…

  11. Pavel Dastyuk cuts Flyers lead to 4-3

    Apr 4, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    This game is not exactly going into any goalie handbooks, that’s for sure. The Red Wings moved the puck around from Henrik Zetterberg to Jason Williams and finally to Pavel Datsyuk who scored a soft goal on Brian Boucher to continue the game’s trend of early period goals. The game is now a 4-3 lead…

  12. Beautiful puck movement makes it 4-2 Philly

    Apr 4, 2010, 2:05 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Earlier today I raved about three goals that featured great puck movement, so it’s nice to see an example of that in the Game of the Week. Ville Leino sent the puck to Kimmo Timonen who immediately moved it to Aaron Asham, who scored his 10th goal of the season to make it 4-2 Philadelphia.…

  13. Osgood allows another early goal, Flyers up 3-2

    Apr 4, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    I said that Chris Osgood doesn’t wake up until the playoffs, but now it seems like he doesn’t wake up in the beginning of a period either. He allowed a quick first period goal to Dan Carcillo and then gave up one in the first minute of the second period to boot. A puck was…

  14. Flyers being let down by Brian Boucher

    Apr 4, 2010, 1:16 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Philadelphia Flyers had the right idea. They came out with a strong forecheck and lots of energy against a much more talented team that played yesterday, and it paid off. Carcillo opened the scoring 17 seconds into the game, and Kimmo Timmonen put the Flyers up 2-0 not long after. Chris Osgood did not…

  15. Red Wings score quick goals, Game tied 2-2

    Apr 4, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Philadelphia Flyers left Brian Boucher out to dry and Dan Cleary cashed in on a rebound to get the Red Wings back in the game. It’s now 2-1 Flyers thanks to what Joe called a “grimy” goal. Personally, I’d like to ask every team that plays an NBC Game of the Week to play…

  16. Kimmo Timonen puts the Flyers up 2-0

    Apr 4, 2010, 12:49 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Eddie O pointed out that Todd Bertuzzi made an unwise risk that allowed the Flyers to have a big odd-man rush in which Ian Laperriere was able to feed the puck to Kimmo Timonen for an easy goal. The Flyers now have an early 2-0 lead in a game that they clearly need more than…
