  1. 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…

    May 13, 2010, 7:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Sunday, May 16 looks to be a great day for hockey fans. Both the Western and Eastern Conference finals will begin on then, with the Blackhawks-Sharks tilt appearing on NBC at 3 PM ET. Here’s the news from the NHL. The National Hockey League today announced that the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs Western Conference Final,…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

    Comments Off

    We have two big games tonight and – barring an overtime in the Penguins-Canadiens Game 7 that would surely give me a heart attack – hockey fans should be able to watch all of one and a chunk of the other. Let’s take a look at the two big games, starting with the penultimate Pens…

  10. Crosby and Penguins need to put frustrations aside

    May 12, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    I’ve written before how Sidney Crosby’s obvious frustration was a good sign for the Canadiens, and as the series has worn on you’re seeing that frustration more and more. Crosby was able to get his first goal of the series in Game 6, although he was held to just three shots in the game and…

  11. Savard has had enough with Mike Richards

    May 11, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    It took nearly 55 minutes, but the Boston Bruins finally showed some emotion in last night’s game against the Flyers. Unfortunately, at that point the Bruins were down 4-0 and already it was inevitable that the series was headed back to Philadelphia for a Game 6. At the heart of the festivities between the two…

  12. Hartnell, Leino spark Flyers for 3-0 lead

    May 10, 2010, 8:50 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    After Brian Boucher left the game a bit over 4 minutes in the second period and the Flyers protecting a 1-0 lead, you would think the Bruins would amp up their play and take advantage of a goaltender who hasn’t seen the ice since the middle of March. Instead, we witnessed the Flyers press the…

  13. Brian Boucher leaves game, Leighton in

    May 10, 2010, 8:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    With the Flyers leading the Bruins 1-0 in the second period, goaltender Brian Boucher was at the bottom of a pile up in his crease when Ryan Parent appeared to fall on his left leg. He was down in pain as it looked like his leg was twisted/crushed under Parent, and he was forced to…

    Both of the Eastern Conference semifinals series could end tonight, possibly at almost the same exact time. Let’s take a look at Habs-Pens Game 6 and Flyers-Bruins Game 5. Pittsburgh Penguins at Montreal Canadiens – 7:00 PM ET (Versus, CBC, FS Pittsburgh) Penguins lead series 3-2 There are worries that young Habs fans will riot whether…

  15. Injury Updates for Carcillo, Gill and others

    Earlier today I shared reports that Dan Carcillo might miss today’s game, but it sounds like his status has improved. More on him and the various Montreal Canadiens who may or may not be available in this injury update. Carcillo a game-time decision. Ryan Parent and Michael Leighton will be back. Here’s snippets from an NHL.com…

  16. Injury Reports on Carcillo, Gill and others

    Let’s take a look at some of today’s injury tidbits. Dan Carcillo expected back on Monday Philly.com reports that the super-pest is supposed to play in Game 5 against the Boston Bruins. He missed the third period and overtime of Game 4 because of what looked like a knee injury. Carcillo’s been a difference maker (although…

  17. Future (and present) full of promise for Boston

    May 8, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    When discussing the Boston Bruins this year, I’d normally focus on the future. After all, with the mediocre way they were playing during the regular season, it was hard to imagine them doing much in the short term. Obviously the B’s continue to exceed expectations by being one win away from the Eastern Conference Finals,…

  18. 2010 NHL playoffs: Simon Gagne's OT winner

    May 8, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Considering how close the Bruins-Flyers series had been, a sweep almost seemed wrong. Simon Gagne made a big impact on his first game back from a foot injury, scoring an overtime game winning goal to keep Philadelphia alive. While the Flyers have an uphill battle the Red Wings (and now the Canucks) can really relate…

  19. Gagne's OT winner keeps Flyers alive

    May 7, 2010, 10:46 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Flyers faithful were on edge all night waiting for something bad to happen but Simon Gagne made sure they weren’t going to go home unhappy. Gagne’s tip in past Tuukka Rask 14:40 into overtime ensured that the Flyers would stay alive for at least one more game. For Gagne it should provide a huge…

  20. Injury Reports: Simon Gagne, Bill Guerin could be back

    Let’s take a look at injury news from around the NHL today. Simon Gagne a game-time decision tonight With the Boston Bruins dropping like flies, you never know if the Philadelphia Flyers might have a chance to make a comeback. Sure, it’s unlikely, but you never know. Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Simon…

  21. Simon Gagne to play in Game 4?

    May 6, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    As the Flyers took to the ice this morning, reports began to flood in that Simon Gagne — out so far with a broken toe — was on the ice and skating as he supposedly prepares to play tomorrow in Game 4 against the Bruins. The Flyers are down in the series now 3-0 and…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

    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…
