  1. Did Dubinsky break an unwritten rule of fighting?

    Mar 15, 2010, 11:49 AM EDT

    I have to admit I was amused to see the New York Rangers’ Brandon Dubinsky thoroughly beat down Mike Richards of the Flyers yesterday. It was obviously an emotionally-fueled fight and it was painfully obvious that Dubinsky won the fight. I also didn’t see anything out of the ordinary with it. Well, perhaps there was…

  2. Panic setting in for the Senators?

    Mar 15, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Things are getting serious up in Ottawa. The Senators are yet another team that is struggling coming out of the Olympic break, after winning 14-of-16 games heading into March. There was the hope that Ottawa would be able to lock down a division title and home ice in at least the first round, but now…

  3. Avery's big night proves Tortorella was right

    Mar 15, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    You know Larry Brooks is smiling this morning. After Brooks lambasted New York Rangers coach John Tortorella for scratching Sean Avery last week, the NHL’s most annoying player responded last night with two goals in a big win against Philadelphia. “I see Sean as a player who is at his best when the games are…

  4. Ducks GM angry about the Olympics effect on his team

    Mar 15, 2010, 9:56 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Here’s a shocker: Anaheim Ducks GM Bob Murray is angry about the Olympics, and how the Ducks season has fallen apart after returning from the break. “We went in playing well and came out dead,” Murray said, referring to the team’s 14-6 surge before the Olympic break and an 0-4-1 nosedive in the Ducks’ first…

  5. The night the Pens' season almost died

    Mar 15, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    It was almost the worst scenario imaginable for Penguins fans, and it’s still far from good. In the same game, the Pittsburgh Penguins almost lost both Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby to potentially serious injury, and we’re still not certain what the extent of Malkin’s injury might be. Crosby looked to have injured his knee…

  6. The Colin Campbell Crisis Collection

    Mar 15, 2010, 8:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Colin Campbell certainly has been a busy man the last few weeks. As a matter of fact, the seemingly constant barrage of dirty/questionable/legal-but-reprehensible hits have kept us quite busy too. (It’s never a good sign when you’re perusing Web sites about neurosurgery.) Anyway, it occurred to us that there have been so many posts regarding controversial…

  7. Campbell could miss regular season, some playoffs

    Mar 15, 2010, 3:50 AM EDT

    Instead of missing three regular season games, it appears that Brian Campbell will miss at least the rest of the regular season with a broken collarbone from the much discussed hit on Sunday. Here’s the word from Second City Hockey. He’ll likely miss the regular season and could miss some significant time in the post-season…

  9. The dirty hits keep coming: Downie's slew-foot on Crosby

    Mar 14, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

    Who would have thought that Alex Ovechkin wouldn’t be the only star involved in a dangerous hit today? This time, the star was a victim, as Sidney Crosby was on the receiving end of an indefensible slew-foot from noted degenerate Steve Downie. (Video of the dirty “figure four leglock” like maneuver can be found at Kukla’s Korner.…

  10. Ovechkin's hit sidelines Campbell at least 3 games

    Mar 14, 2010, 6:40 PM EDT

    Regardless of whether you look at Alex Ovechkin’s hit on Brian Campbell as dirty, clean or somewhere in between, there’s no question that the redheaded defenseman crashed into the boards in a violent way. One has to wonder how much time the expensive but talented player will miss. Apparently he’ll be sidelined for at least…

  11. Who is the NHL's best offensive defenseman?

    Mar 14, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    People complain that the Norris trophy only goes to high scoring defensemen, but usually that player needs to at least be somewhat responsible in his own zone. Mike and Pierre discussed their favorite “rushing” defensemen this afternoon.   That offensive defensemen discussion got me thinking about which players I’d want leading my team’s rush or…

    Spring forward, you dastardly foe. I usually warn people of early afternoon Saturday games, but tonight makes for an unusual schedule of games. Including ones that are set to start now, at 5:00 PM ET. Here’s the rest of Sunday’s start times. Toronto Maple Leafs (23-33-12, 58 pts) at New York Islanders (27-32-9, 63 pts)…

  15. Alex Ovechkin's hit is far from controversial

    Mar 14, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    I don’t want to hear about any conspiracy. I don’t want to listen to any talks about referee bias, or how the NHL has an agenda towards any team or player. None of that factored into this situation. In fact, I think the big issue here is that the referee’s actually got the call right,…

  16. Backstrom fuels Caps' stunning 4-3 comeback

    Mar 14, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    With his team down 3-0 and NHL scoring leader Alex Ovechkin gone after a controversial first period hit, Nicklas Backstrom picked a great time to take hold of the spotlight. The Swedish center was the catalyst of Chicago’s second consecutive third period collapse with two goals and one assist, including the overtime game winner. This…

    The jokes about the Chicago Blackhawks last giving up a three goal lead … yesterday seem quite justified right now. After being robbed by Antti Niemi during a 5-on-3 PP, Nicklas Backstrom banged home a goal during the closing moments of the Capitals’ remaining one man advantage to make the game 5-2. Moments later, Eric…
