  1. Playing in Montreal "special" for Gagne, Briere

    May 19, 2010, 4:53 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Don’t expect a warm welcome for Danny Briere ad Simon Gagne in Montreal just because they are locals. In fact, knowing Habs fans, it’s likely that Briere and Gagne get a more “enthusiastic” response than anyone on the Flyers. Yet for these two players, getting a chance to play in Montreal is special enough. Per…

  2. What's missing from this San Jose Sharks team? Heart.

    May 19, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    If there’s one thing we can count on every postseason, it’s the endless supply of articles that rip the San Jose Sharks to shreds for yet another playoffs disappointment. This year, I had hopes that perhaps we could avoid all that — as fun as it may be — and even if the Chicago Blackhawks…

    The IIHF World Championships, held every summer (during the NHL playoffs) that is supposed to feature the top talent from around the world. Usually that’s the case, except when the players that are invited are still in the playoffs or have some sort of injury that prevents them from playing. This season, a number of…

  4. Randy Sexton a fan of the Dale Tallon hiring

    May 19, 2010, 1:46 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s happened a few times the past few years and Randy Sexton would like to see it again. Departed general managers have lately had a tendency to stick with the team that is replacing them, and Sexton would welcome the same opportunity after the Florida Panthers hired Dale Tallon in his place. From an AP…

  5. Jonathan Toews shining, on defense and offense

    When the 2010 Selke Trophy  finalists were announced — Pavel Datsyuk, Jordan Staal and Ryan Kesler — many felt that the one player who was shorted the most was Jonathan Toews. A lot of the focus on the Blackhawks is on their stellar blue line and their high-powered offense, but one big key to their…

  7. Sharks come unglued with 4-2 loss to Blackhawks

    May 19, 2010, 12:22 AM EDT

    San Jose Sharks 2, Chicago Blackhawks 4 Blackhawks lead series 2-0 How do you judge this series so far? Is this the San Jose Sharks choking? This is two straight losses at home, with a clear path to the Stanley Cup finals after reaching the previously-hallowed ground of the conference finals. Or is this just…

  8. Mike Cammalleri: "I don't really feel frustrated."

    May 18, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Brian Compton of has some Mike Cammalleri quotes from after the Canadiens’ loss to the Flyers, and if the rest of the Habs share his outlook you wonder if this team needs to adopt a bit more of a killer instinct. Overall, the leading scorer of the Canadiens doesn’t seem too concerned with his…

  9. Halak, Canadiens stumble in 3-0 loss to Flyers

    May 18, 2010, 9:45 PM EDT

    Final – Philadelphia Flyers 3, Montreal Canadiens 0 Flyers lead series 2-0 I know that a lot of attention now is going to turn on Jaroslav Halak, and how his struggles are costing the Canadiens after his heroics got them to this point. While Halak has certainly looked far from the goaltender we saw in…

  10. Blackhawks chasing NHL playoffs record

    I’m sure this record isn’t exactly at the top of their list of “things to do on the way to the Stanley Cup” but the Blackhawks are a win tonight away from tying an NHL postseason record with seven straight road wins. It’s been a staple of their playoff success this season, with six of…

    Philadelphia Flyers 2, Montreal Canadiens 0 Flyers lead series 1-0 After being embarrassed in Game 1, one thing the Montreal Canadiens vowed to do tonight was to come out with energy and purpose, hoping to stun the Flyers with an early onslaught. That’s exactly what they did. They controlled played in the first and through…

  12. San Jose not the typical southern hockey market

    May 18, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    Since I grew up learning and loving hockey in Dallas, I am someone who firmly believes that hockey is a sport that can work anywhere. It doesn’t matter if it’s in Michigan or Mississippi, if the team is successful and marketed right the fans will come and these issues facing “hockey in the south” are…

    The Phoenix Business Journal reports that the Phoenix Coyotes may, in fact, have a third suitor. Unfortunately, the possible owner/ownership group is anonymous at this time. The story notes that, in order for this potential owner to make the situation work, there would need to be some compromise. The NHL previously said it wanted to have…

    Last year, the Pittsburgh Penguins were floundering to the point that it looked like the eventual Stanley Cup champions wouldn’t even make the playoffs. Finally, out of desperation, the team decided to fire coach Michel Therrien in favor of minor league success Dan Bylsma. The rest is now a part of burrito-powered history. Could it…

    May 18, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    A 6-0 win usually indicates a serious imbalance, but as the playoffs have shown us time and time again, things can change very quickly. Brian Gionta admitted that the Canadiens were far behind the Flyers in Game 1, but seemed upbeat that the team could rebound with some minor tweaks.  Habs Eyes on the Prize…
