  1. Henrik Sedin takes down Crosby and Ovechkin to win Hart Trophy

    Jun 23, 2010, 11:19 PM EDT

    The biggest award of the night, the Hart Trophy, was perhaps the most hotly debated of them all. And why not, it goes to the league’s most valuable player and all three nominees had exemplary seasons. The question remaining tonight would be who out of Alexander Ovechkin, Henrik Sedin and Sidney Crosby would be the…

  2. Ryan Miller wins his first Vezina Trophy

    Jun 23, 2010, 9:09 PM EDT

    One of the more intriguing awards of the night to be given out tonight was the Vezina Trophy for league’s best goaltender. With three worthy finalists in Buffalo’s Ryan Miller, Phoenix’s Ilya Bryzgalov and award stalwart Martin Brodeur from New Jersey it was curious to see how the voters would go on this one. All…

  3. Why Don Maloney received first-ever GM of the year award

    Jun 3, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Yesterday, the NHL’s general managers deemed Phoenix Coyotes GM Don Maloney the best GM of the 2009-10 season. This makes Maloney the award’s first recipient. The story states that Maloney beat out two other finalists: Nashville Predators GM David Poile and Washington Capitals GM George McPhee. (I have to admit that I’m surprised Boston Bruins…

  4. Don Maloney named NHL GM of the Year

    Jun 2, 2010, 11:16 AM EDT

    To the surprise of absolutely no one, Don Maloney has been named the NHL General Manager of the Year. Here’s the press release: PHILADELPHIA (June 2, 2010) — Don Maloney of the Phoenix Coyotes is the 2009-10 winner of the NHL General Manager of the Year Award, the National Hockey League announced today. Maloney accepted…

  5. Poll: How much is Jaroslav Halak worth?

    May 7, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    It’s not exactly as if Jaroslav Halak was a face in the crowd before the playoffs started. The impressive Slovak goalie sported an outstanding 92.4 save percentage and wrestled the Canadiens’ starting job from should-be savior Carey Price this season. Still, on a league-wide scale, there’s little doubt that this post-season run put him on…

  6. 2010 NHL Playoffs: First round stats leaders

    Apr 29, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    With the first round of the 2010 NHL Playoffs in the bag, I thought it might be wise to look at the league’s leaders in certain categories. Eliminated players in italics. Points leaders through Round 1 1. Sidney Crosby – 142 (tied). Mikael Samuelsson – 11 2 (tied). Henrik Zetterberg – 113 (tied). Michael Cammalleri…

  7. Looking at the Coyotes' on-ice future

    Apr 28, 2010, 2:40 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Obviously, the biggest off-season questions for the Phoenix Coyotes center around “who will be their owner?” and “where will they play this year and beyond?” Still, if coach Dave Tippett and the scrappy bunch showed us anything, it’s that the ownership issues aren’t the only story when it comes to this team. It’s difficult (dare I…

  8. Goals of the night: Pavel Datsyuk and Brad Stuart

    Apr 28, 2010, 10:08 AM EDT

    It seems crazy that Brad Stuart would join Pavel Datsyuk in the same post about scoring the goal of the night but it’s the playoffs and sometimes these things happen, it just doesn’t usually happen that both of these guys would score breakaway goals.  First up, Pavel Datsyuk shows why he’s the master of the…

  9. Wings hate storybooks, beat Coyotes and win series

    Apr 28, 2010, 12:10 AM EDT

    If you thought things might get turned around after a demoralizing end to the second period for the Coyotes… Then you were still caught up in the storybook storyline potential that this Detroit-Phoenix series had. Instead, reality set in and the Wings took out the Coyotes in Game 7 of their opening round series 6-1.…

  10. Game 7 update: End of 2 – Wings lead Yotes 4-1

    Apr 27, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    For as much as the first period was a feeling out process with the Red Wings pouring shots on goal against Coyotes netminder Ilya Bryzgalov, the second period showed that the Red Wings were not about to stop what they were doing unleashing a beastly attack to take a 4-1 lead after two periods. For…

  11. Game 7 update: Wings-Coyotes tied 0-0

    Apr 27, 2010, 9:55 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Call it a “feeling out” period if you will as the Red Wings and Coyotes with their playoff lives on the line play a tight, mostly mistake-free first period that ends with the score knotted at 0-0.  Each team got a crack on the power play but each team was, obviously, denied a goal. Meanwhile,…

  12. Coyotes use special teams to tie series 3-3

    Apr 25, 2010, 4:43 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    I have to say I’m impressed with the Phoenix Coyotes. After the first period, even though the Red Wings were down 1-0, I just had this feeling that Detroit would fight back, keep doing what was working in the first period and then eventually take the lead. Yet the special teams play of the Phoenix…

  13. Coyotes take 1-0 lead into 1st intermission

    Apr 25, 2010, 2:59 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The keys for a Coyotes victory: be aggressive, get the early goal, don’t allow the Red Wings to dictate play. I guess one out of three is….ok. Ilya Bryzgalov made 13 saves for the Coyotes, who had to kill off a significant amount of time on the penalty kill, yet walked away with an improbable…

  14. Talent, experience has Red Wings in control

    Detroit Red Wings vs. Phoenix Coyotes2:00 p.m. EDT, April 25, 2010Live on NBC The Phoenix Coyotes have been the feel-good story of the season, but unfortunately uplifting and motivating stories don’t translate to wins on the ice. Although the Coyotes finished the season with more wins and a better overall record, the Red Wings were…

  15. Red Wings up 1-0, Canucks lead 2-1

    Apr 23, 2010, 11:01 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Through the first period of the two late games, the Red Wings have a 1-0 lead in Phoenix while the Vancouver Canucks are up 2-1 at home. For the Red Wings-Coyotes game, Detroit’s been controlling most of the play so far. Ilya Bryzgalov is currently 11-for-12 while Jimmy Howard only had to make six saves…

  16. Tonight's playoff games

    Let’s take a look at tonight’s games. Montreal Canadiens at Washington Capitals 7:00 PM ET (Versus, TSN, CSN Mid-Atlantic) Capitals lead series 3-1 It’s funny to think that the last time the series was in Washington, the Caps needed a desperate surge to tie the series in overtime. Perhaps without the pressure of pleasing their…

  17. Crosby, Anderson, Rinne lead playoff week 1 stats

    Apr 21, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    The playoffs started last Wednesday, so I figure now is a good time to take a look at some of the league leaders. Obviously, you need to keep in mind that some teams played four games while some only played three so far. That’s before we even get to such important factors like “this team…

  18. 2010 NHL playoffs: Detroit ties series with Phoenix

    Apr 20, 2010, 9:37 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    After a mostly lackluster effort against a fired up Coyotes team in Game 3, the Red Wings answered the bell in a big way in Game 4 taking out Phoenix 3-0 to tie the series at 2-2. One of the major players under the microscope for Detroit after Detroit’s mostly miserable performance was Jimmy Howard…

  19. 2010 NHL playoffs: Tuesday night run wild

    Apr 20, 2010, 8:18 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Updates from around a busy night of Game 4s across the NHL: Detroit and Phoenix battle through each other in what’s become a series with a lot of sandpaper-like play. Ilya Bryzgalov has been equal to the task until late in the second when Niklas Kronwall‘s shot from the point and deflected in on a…

  20. Red Wings aim to solve the frustrating Coyotes

    Apr 20, 2010, 5:28 PM EDT

    James Mirtle of the Globe & Mail has a great story up today, focusing on the struggles by the Detroit Red Wings as they take Dave Tippett and the Phoenix Coyotes. Aside from one crazy period in Game 2, it could be said the Coyotes have completely controlled the Red Wings, as they adopt a…

  21. 2010 NHL playoffs: Goaltender rankings revisited

    Apr 20, 2010, 3:32 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Last week, we ranked the 16 starting goaltenders headed into the playoffs. It was completely subjective based on my thoughts regarding each goaltender’s 2009-10 season and past playoff performance. With several goaltenders not having much postseason action, if at all, it was a tough proposition. After a week, with most series already gone three games,…

    NBC Playoff Coverage Phoenix Coyotes 4, Red Wings 2, Coyotes lead series 2-1 (Obviously, this photo isn’t from today’s game but it’s so worth it. Look at the women’s facial expressions. That’s classic, folks.) Perhaps Sami Lepisto’s goal 29 seconds into the first period symbolized what the Phoenix Coyotes are and the Detroit Red Wings…

  24. Filppula ties it on the PP, 1-1

    Apr 18, 2010, 3:47 PM EDT

    The Red Wings have certainly responded after the opening-minute goal by the Coyotes, and have been placing to steadily increasing pressure on the Coyotes as the first period has progressed. It paid off when Valterri Filppula snuck a rebound shot short side on Bryzgalov on the power play. Ilya Bryzgalov has looked a bit shaky…

  25. What they're saying about Phoenix-Detroit

    Apr 18, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT
