  1. Tom Hicks on sports: "This isn't my life"

    May 6, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Tom Hicks has gone from one of the best owners in the NHL, one who was able to inexplicably make hockey a viable sport in North Texas, to one that many wish would just go away as quickly and as quietly as possible. That’s not going to happen, it seems. Hicks purchased the Dallas Stars…

  2. Are the Red Wings wearing down?

    May 6, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    The Red Wings have played a ton of hockey the past three years and despite what some Red Wings fans may admit, they are a bit of an older team. Combine all of the hockey played by the team and the Olympic hockey that most of the Red Wings’ players played, there’s no doubt that…

  3. Staal, Guerin game-time decisions for tonight

    May 6, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    Jordan Staal and Bill Guerin are both likely to be game-time decisions tonight against the Montreal Canadiens, although it appears that Staal is much closer to returning.  When he does return, he’ll use the same skates he was wearing when he was was cut by P.K Subban’s skate blade, which he says makes skating much…

  4. Red Wings sticking with Howard in net

    May 6, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Jimmy Howard hasn’t exactly played lights out for the Red Wings in the second round, allowing four goals in each of three losses to the Sharks. Yet he’s far from the reason the Sharks are ahead in this series 3-0 and the Red Wings are going to stick with their goaltender even while facing elimination.…

    It’s not everyday you get to see a goaltender score a goal, but the commentator in this video acts as if he’s seen every other game.

  7. David Krejci to miss rest of playoffs with broken wrist

    May 6, 2010, 1:30 AM EDT

    With players dropping like flies and the team winning despite all that, one must wonder if the Boston Bruins will suit up beer leaguers at some point in the playoffs. James Murphy of NESN shares that center David Krejci will be out for the playoffs after suffering from a broken wrist thanks to a legal…

  8. Byfuglien makes Luongo miserable, Chicago wins 5-2

    May 6, 2010, 12:30 AM EDT

    He might not have the subtle goalie screening skills of Tomas Holmstrom, but Dustin Byfuglien had an enormous impact on Roberto Luongo in Chicago’s 5-2 win tonight. The large forward scored a hat trick and generally made life miserable for the Canucks goalie. Chicago Blackhawks 5, Vancouver Canucks 2 Blackhawks lead series 2-1 The final…

  9. Dustin Byfuglien, Alex Burrows make impact on second, Chi up 3-2

    May 5, 2010, 11:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    For a while there, it was looking like Alex Burrows was going to be the goat of the second period. The high-scoring pest took a bad unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that allowed Chicago to score yet another powerplay goal. We were reminded that Burrows’s only 2010 playoff goal came from an empty netter so far. Well,…

  10. Antti Niemi holds strong in first, Chicago up 2-0

    May 5, 2010, 10:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    If things keep going this way, Cinco de Mayo might become a holiday for Finnish goalies too. Tuukka Rask provided outstanding goaltending in the Bruins’ win against the Flyers while fellow countrymen Antti Niemi came up big for Chicago in the first period. The Blackhawks hold a 2-0 lead largely because their goalie is outplaying…

  11. Tuukka Rask, Bruins paralyze Philly, take 3-0 series lead

    May 5, 2010, 9:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Most of this year, hockey writers lingered on just how much better the Bruins were last year. Now, with one more win, Boston can pass the 2008-09 team in the area that matters the most: the playoffs. Boston Bruins 4, Philadelphia Flyers 1 Bruins lead series 3-0 To me, the biggest moment might have been…

  12. David Krejci leaves game, Boston still up 2-1

    May 5, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    It’s unclear how severe the injury is, but David Krejci left today’s game after taking a hit from Mike Richards. The Boston Bruins center appeared to favor his wrist on the play in which he – oddly enough – earned an assist. No word yet on whether or not he’ll return to tonight’s game or…

  13. NHL playoffs benefit from both Cinderella teams and 'dynasties'

    May 5, 2010, 8:30 PM EDT

    When people talk about sports, they love to talk about two types of teams: dynasties and Cinderella teams. Sure, there’s something to be said for those New York Islanders and Edmonton Oilers juggernauts in the ’80s and the Montreal Canadiens in the ’70s, but who doesn’t love those teams who caught lightning in a bottle?…

    Comments Off

    The NHL playoffs are full of upsets but try this on for size: there were absolutely zero penalties in the first period of tonight’s Bruins-Flyers game. What? Isn’t this Philadelphia and Boston? How exactly does that happen? Things got crazy in a different way early in the first period. Aaron Asham scored 2:32 into the…

    With San Jose’s defeat of Detroit last night, we currently have two series that could end in a sweep. Will Boston put the Flyers in a full nelson and really take hold of the series? Which of the Canucks or Blackhawks will give their team a one-game advantage? Let’s take a look at the two…

  16. Chicago looking forward to Vancouver's Green Men

    May 5, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    The Green Men, who have gained national notoriety for their antics outside the penalty box in Vancouver, will be on hand again in an attempt to agitate any Blackhawks player who makes their way to the sin bin. While we haven’t seen much actual response from the players in the box, it will be interesting…

  17. "Too many men" for Sharks not a big deal

    May 5, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    There’s a screencap making the rounds today that shows seven men on the ice for the Sharks at the moment when Patrick Marleau was scoring the winning goal in overtime last night against the Detroit Red Wings. Here’s a link to the screencap, courtesy of Greg Wyshynski. What it shows is two Sharks players looking…

  18. Richards and Bergeron battling in faceoff circle

    May 5, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    A lot of the attention in the series between the Flyers and Bruins has been on the growing animosity between Dan Carcillo and Marc Savard. Yet in any long series there are other matchups and battles that become more intriguing each game, and currently we have one that’s building between Patrice Bergeron and Mike Richards…

    May 5, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    Alessandro Rosso, a blogger and reporter covering Russian hockey for Hockey’s Future (among others) has tweeted today that Olli Jokinen will sign with Dinamo Minsk of the KHL.
