  1. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: Will anyone pick the Flyers to win?

    May 27, 2010, 4:34 PM EDT

    When writing the postgame story for the Chicago Blackhawks’ series win over the San Jose Sharks, I finished the post with this statement: You wonder if the Eastern Conference team will even stand a chance. Now, obviously that was a bit hyperbolic, and even though the series wasn’t over yet there was a good chance…

  2. Brian Boucher could back up Michael Leighton for Game 1

    May 26, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Beyond the Chicago Blackhawks offense, Michael Leighton has another thing to worry about: the potential return of Brian Boucher. reports that Boucher might be ready to backup Leighton as early as Game 1 on Saturday. “I think there is a chance, yeah,” Boucher said. “I think today was a day to get through, and it went…

  3. Will Marian Hossa finally win a Stanley Cup?

    May 26, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    For three straight seasons, Marian Hossa will play in the Stanley Cup finals, and he’ll be doing so with his third different team in a row. It’s an odd mercenary accomplishment for the Czech winger, who chose to leave Pittsburgh for Detroit (the team that beat the Penguins) and then the Red Wings for the…

  4. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: Who's the Conn Smythe favorite?

    May 25, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    As we gear up for the Stanley Cup finals, we start the incredibly premature breakdowns looking at which players might be the early favorites for the Conn Smythe. The Chicago Blackhawks and the Philadelphia Flyers have each had players step it up and take their game to the next level, providing the edge each team…

  6. NHL Playoffs, Flyers vs. Canadiens, Game 4: Philly throttles listless Montreal 3-0

    May 22, 2010, 6:45 PM EDT

    When a strong team or a “favorite” tumbles, sports writers scatter the ashes for excuses. Could it be that the team lacked heart or intestinal fortitude or some other metaphorical body part? Did Star Player X fail to “show up”? No, maybe it’s just that Embattled Coach failed to make the proper adjustments. Yet, in…

  7. NHL Playoffs, Blackhawks v. Sharks, Game 3: Niemi, not choke job, spells doom for Sharks

    May 22, 2010, 12:45 AM EDT

    Eastern Conference Finals, Game 3, Final (OT) Chicago Blackhawks 3, San Jose Sharks 2 Blackhawks lead series 3-0 The San Jose Sharks had their collective hearts broken tonight. Friday night was easily the best they’ve performed against the Chicago Blackhawks in this series, blasting 46 shots on goal and controlling play for most of the…

  8. The PHT Nightcap – Wednesday, May 19

    May 19, 2010, 11:45 PM EDT

    For most of the playoffs it’s been difficult to do a PHT Nightcap. Simply put, the games tend to end so late that we’re usually in full-on zombie mode. That is irksome, though, because there’s a ton of content in every day. With no games on tonight’s docket, I was able to put this collection…

  9. Marco Sturm to miss 6 months after knee surgery

    May 19, 2010, 7:45 PM EDT

    Earlier today, I shared reports that Montreal Canadiens defenseman Andrei Markov is expected to miss six months after surgery. It appears that Boston Bruins forward Marco Sturm is in a very similar situation, as he should be out about the same time – about six months – after yesterday’s surgery to repair his right knee. Here’s the…

  10. Will Joe Thornton finally lead his team to the Cup finals?

  11. Conference finals highlight rise of European goaltending

    May 15, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    One of the lingering lessons of the Olympics (for me, anyway) was how far European/non-North American goaltending has come in the last four years. Just look at the great tournament Jonas Hiller had for the Swiss national team. That trend is definitely continuing in the NHL playoffs as three of the four conference finalists feature…

  12. Are we headed to a Conference finals letdown?

    May 15, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    There’s no doubt that this has been one of the most amazing hockey playoff seasons we’ve had in a very long time. Forget the multiple Game 7 dramas, or the absolute upsets of the Penguins and the Capitals. You could even overlook the history that was made last night in Pittsburgh, and you would still…

  13. Flyers vs. Canadiens: Who's the favorite?

    May 15, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    We only have one day to dwell on the big series win by the Philadelphia Flyers, one that has seemingly overwhelmed the incredible win by the Montreal Canadiens over the Pittsburgh Penguins. While the Flyers ousting the Bruins wasn’t exactly unexpected — although coming back from down 0-3 was — the Habs taking out both…

  14. Rounding up the reaction to Flyers historic win

    May 15, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    After the Philadelphia Flyers came back from being down 0-3 in the series against the Bruins to win, becoming just the third team in NHL history to do so, many were split on exactly what happened in this series. Did the Bruins collapse? Was this a choke of monumental proportions, possibly one of the worst…

  15. Explaining the "too many men" penalty

    May 15, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    After all of the “too many men” penalties we’ve seen in the playoffs, it was inevitable that one would occur in historic fashion. The Boston Bruins were trying their best to fight off the Flyers in the third period of Game 7, having already given up a 3-0 lead and were close to finishing off…

  16. Analyzing Boston's historic collapse

    May 14, 2010, 11:55 PM EDT

    It’s rare when you get to do a piece like this. It’s never happened in the NBA. It’s happened once in Major League Baseball and before tonight it’s only happened twice in the NHL. Tonight, however, the Boston Bruins did what only the 1975 Pittsburgh Penguins and the 1942 Detroit Red Wings did before them:…

  17. Magical comeback for Flyers far from surprising

    May 14, 2010, 10:45 PM EDT

    As soon as James van Riemsdyk’s partially-blocked wrist shot inexplicably found it’s way past Tuukka Rask, you could just feel that this was something the Flyers could pull off. That was the goal they needed; something, anything positive in a first period that was everything the Flyers didn’t want in a crucial Game 7. Too…

  18. Game 7 preview: What they're saying

    May 14, 2010, 5:08 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The message for a Game 7 with historic implications is simple: Win or go home. For the Bruins, a win matches them up with their long time rivals the Canadiens. A loss, however, puts them in infamous company. Head coach Claude Julien’s words for his team are simple. “You go out there and you play to…

  20. Both Conference finals series to start on Sunday

Here’s the news from the NHL. The National Hockey League today announced that the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs Western Conference Final,…

  21. Don't forget about the Philadelphia Flyers

    May 13, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    What the Montreal Canadiens have been able to do so far in the playoffs is certainly tremendous. They’re the eighth seed in the East and have taken out the two darlings of the NHL, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals. No more Sid. No more Ovi. All thanks to the Canadiens. But we can’t…

  22. 2010 NHL Playoffs: Michael Leighton, Jaroslav Halak highlights

    May 13, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    For some reason, there were many people down on Micheal Leighton heading into Game 6, but it’s important to remember that he was going to be their goaltender for the playoffs before his injury. Sure, there some consternation that this was his first game back (although he was great in relief in Game 5) but…

  23. Flyers force a Game 7 with 2-1 win

    May 12, 2010, 11:17 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    After playing a mostly heartless Game 5, the Boston Bruins had yet another chance to right the ship and finish off the now reinvigorated Philadelphia Flyers in Game 6 in Philadelphia. What they’d do, instead, was be met by a fresh and very game Flyers goaltender in Michael Leighton. Leighton shut down the Bruins and…

  24. Sidney Crosby, Penguins fall short against Canadiens 5-2

    May 12, 2010, 10:15 PM EDT

    The Montreal Canadiens have become experts at “stealing” victories thanks to conservative defense, great goaltending and timely offense. Tonight, however, the Pittsburgh Penguins practically dropped victory in their laps. Montreal Canadiens 5, Pittsburgh Penguins 2 Canadiens win series 4-3 Sidney Crosby and Marc-Andre Fleury set the tone for the game … the only problem was…

  25. Canadiens-Penguins Game 7 Live Chat

    May 12, 2010, 8:52 PM EDT

    Game 7’s are like Christmas in a dysfunctional family. On one hand, the night is full of gifts and perhaps even some honey baked ham. That being said, there are stressful moments (especially if the game goes into overtime or your crazy Uncle Peter relieves himself in the fruit punch again). These are the kind…
