  1. Watch these free-agents-to-be in the East

    Apr 13, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    One of my nerdy hockey (and sports) obsessions is to study the breakthroughs an athlete will experience in a contract year. Just look at Fernando Pisani’s fluke playoff run or last year’s Boston Bruins. My question is, which players could turn a great playoff run into a husky pay day? Now let’s take a look…

    One of my nerdy hockey (and sports) obsessions is to study the breakthroughs an athlete will experience in a contract year. Just look at Fernando Pisani’s fluke playoff run or last year’s Boston Bruins. My question is, which players could turn a great playoff run into a husky pay day? First, let’s take a look…

  3. 2010 NHL playoffs: Ranking the goaltenders

    Apr 13, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    As we head into the 2010 NHL Playoffs, every series we break down always comes back to one thing: goaltending. Even the most offensively gifted team in the playoffs needs exceptional goaltending to get through four rounds of hockey; just ask the Pittsburgh Penguins how important Marc-Andre Fleury was to them last season. It’s no…

The Canadiens are…

  6. Sidney Crosby, Steven Stamkos tie for Richard trophy

    Apr 11, 2010, 8:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Sidney Crosby and Steven Stamkos have officially tied for the Rocket Richard Trophy with two excellent 51 goal seasons. This marks the second time in NHL history that the goal scoring award will go to more than one player as the 2003-04 season featured a three-way tie between Jarome Iginla, Rick Nash and Ilya Kovalchuk.…

    Expect a recap of our surprisingly great NBC Game of the Week between the Capitals and Bruins, but no doubt about it, the about-to-start Rangers-Flyers game is enormous. The game is about to begin on NHL Network. Simply put, this is a one game playoff series. Stay tuned for updates.

  9. Marco Sturm ties game 3-3

    Apr 11, 2010, 2:12 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Marco Sturm will probably end up being the Bruins’ leading goal scorer. He tied the game up 3-3 with a very nice one-timer past Semyon Varlamov. It looks like we’re going to have another photo finish in a year full of heart-stopping Game of the Week finishes. These teams sure are playing like they have…

    (This photo is just too good not to post again. Click on it.  You won’t regret it. Did Evander Kane become an honorary Boston Bruin with this punch?) Let’s take a look at what the Washington and Boston papers/blogs are saying about the two teams. Boston bloggers/papers are saying: NBC Sports’ own Kevin Paul Dupont…

  11. Injury Report: Some healthy players might sit

    Apr 11, 2010, 10:55 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Today might be a bit misleading from an “injuries” standpoint since there might be players who are held out of the game because both teams already clinched their position in the playoffs. The Capitals already guaranteed themselves the number one seed in the East while Montreal’s loss yesterday assured Boston’s place as the number six seed (although it…

    Washington Capitals vs. Boston BruinsNoon EST – Sunday, April 11, 2010Live on NBC It’s a question nearly every dominant team in sports faces as they reach the end of the regular season – how much should they rest their star players?

    Comments Off

    It’s not the way the Montreal Canadiens drew it up, but the Habs are headed to the playoffs after earning a point in tonight’s overtime loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Canadiens have won just three times in their past ten games, but were able back into the playoffs thanks to earning nine of…

    Alex Ovechkin: 50 goals, one game remaining Steven Stamkos: 50 goals, one game remaining Sidney Crosby: 49 goals, one game remaining Steven Stamkos scored twice tonight against the Florida Panthers, doing just about what I expected as he put up 10 shots on goal, and also was able to get an assist as well. Here’s…

  15. Evander Kane destroys Matt Cooke with one punch

    Apr 10, 2010, 8:49 PM EDT

    I’m not one who specifically believes in karma, but it does seem that things sometimes just have a way of working themselves out. Ever since Matt Cooke escaped penalty and suspension for ending Marc Savard’s season, it seems fans have just been waiting for when the rest of the NHL gets their payback. Especially since…

    Here’s the latest Eastern Conference standings, as three teams fight for two playoff spots.

  17. Brian Burke's folly: The Toronto Maple Leafs

    Apr 10, 2010, 3:40 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    James Mirtle wrote a nice piece on the Toronto Maple Leafs, spotlighting the five biggest mistakes that Brian Burke has made in his 500+ days as the team’s general manager. Let me be honest, though – there’s plenty of other mistakes to choose from. The biggest error was trading those crucial draft picks (a first and…

    As we near the end of the season, we’re going to take a look at who we think should be three finalists for the Hart, Norris and Calder Trophies, making arguments for each. Next is the Calder trophy, the NHL’s award for the Rookie of the Year. Next up: Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard.…

Entering tonight’s game against the Thrashers, Ovechkin was sitting tied for…

  20. NHL playoffs update: Just win baby

    Comments Off

    You had to know it wasn’t going to turn out easy. Nothing about the race for the final three spots in the Eastern Conference has been easy nor logical, so of course there was no way the Flyers would beat the Rangers tonight to finalize the East field. Of course the Rangers would win, and…

  22. Marc Savard feeling better, still struggling

    Apr 8, 2010, 8:45 PM EDT

    Joe McDonald of has some quotes from Bruins forward Marc Savard today, as he struggles to recover from a brutal concussion thanks to a hit by Pittsburgh’s Matt Cooke. “There’s still minor headaches and stuff I’m still cautious about,” Savard said. “Until those go away, I’m not going to be able to come back.…

  23. Mark Recchi: Approaching Chelios territory?

    Apr 8, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Mark Recchi is eternal. Mark Recchi wants to enter Chris Chelios Territory. Seriously, the guy just won’t retire. He defiantly takes off his helmet to reveal his time dishonored hairline. He remains a respectably productive point producer as his drop from 61 points last season to 42 this year probably has as much to do…

  24. Tonight's games: Rangers on life support

    Apr 7, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    All five games have at least some playoff implications (at least for seeding), but Detroit-Columbus and Colorado-Edmonton lack some of the sizzle of the other three matches. Those two games are more about trying to leapfrog other teams or keeping their place in line. The other three are a little more interesting, with New York…

  25. Playoff update: West is booked, East thins out

    Apr 7, 2010, 1:10 AM EDT

    It may have taken the shootout to make it happen, but the Western Conference playoff field is set.  The Colorado Avalanche locked down the final spot in the West by knocking down the eventual #3 seed Vancouver in the shootout 4-3 courtesy of a sweet goal from rookie Matt Duchene. The Avs were in a…
