  1. Save of the Night: Jose Theodore

    Apr 6, 2010, 1:10 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Jose Theodore put up a really strong effort last night, saving 28 out of 30 shots to give the Capitals a 3-2 OT win over the desperate but ailing Boston Bruins. Theodore was unreal during this sequence, particularly the kick save he makes toward the end of the video.

  2. Breaking down the Eastern bubble race

    Apr 6, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Last night I chronicled the comparatively straightforward race for the Western Conference’s eighth seed. In the East, things are a lot more complicated; there are essentially four teams competing for the bottom three spots. The top team (Montreal) and bottom team (Atlanta) are only separated by five points. It’s close – really close – in…

  3. Tonight's games: Focus on Boston

    Apr 5, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    There might be three games tonight, but there’s only one that really matters: Boston vs. Washington. That game has big implications for the Bruins, who still need to scratch-and-claw in order to make their way into the playoffs. Let’s take a look at that match and Monday’s other two games. Boston Bruins (36-30-12, 84 pts)…

  4. Source of frustration master post

    Apr 3, 2010, 11:15 PM EDT

    We’re going to try to represent all 30 NHL teams with this “Source of Frustration” series, so it’s understandable if you miss a few here and there. There’s some fantastic writing in these posts, though, and we want to give you every opportunity to read them all. For that reason, this post will house links to…

  5. Seidenberg leaves game with nasty cut on wrist

    Apr 3, 2010, 8:04 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Dennis Seidenberg left Boston’s game against Toronto after suffering a serious cut on his wrist. No word on his condition just yet, but we’ll keep an eye on the situation as it develops. Seidenberg earned my admiration (and the nickname “Pain Sponge” which now has some tragic irony) for leading the league in blocked shots as well as…

  6. Penguins break Thrashers' hearts in OT

    Apr 3, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Atlanta Thrashers lost a precious point in a painful way today, falling to the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 in overtime thanks to a Jordan Leopold goal. The Thrashers had the lead three times in the game but relinquished it that many times, allowing the Penguins’ third goal with a little bit more than a minute…

  7. NHL Playoff Update: Big Day Ahead

    Apr 3, 2010, 11:10 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    I generally don’t like being the melodramatic type, but today is a pretty huge day for playoff jockeying. I’m not going to go off the deep end and call it an “epic” day, but there’s a lot of things that can get squared away in both conferences. Things get started early this afternoon for the…

  8. Quick hits: Tanking, icing and bonuses

    Here are a few mini-stories from around the league, newspapers and blogosphere today. Versus beefs up coverage Great news for hockey fans gearing up for the stretch run as Versus added a bunch of games for the next week. Here’s the lowdown from Puck Daddy.

  9. NHL Playoff Update: West statements, Eastern whimpers

    Apr 2, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Many hockey fans will barely bat an eye at the general rule of last night’s games: the West teams with big games came through while the East teams suffered some disappointing defeats. The Philadelphia Flyers, in particular, must feel some serious April Fools Day shame after losing to the New York Islanders in a game…

  10. Avalanche Playoff Hopes Under Fire

    Apr 1, 2010, 12:25 AM EDT

    The Colorado Avalanche have been the surprise of the NHL for most of this season.  With a young roster, a first-year head coach and a goaltender getting his first crack at being a full-time starter there weren’t a lot of reasons to be hopeful for the Avs this season. Of course this is why they…

  11. Eastern Conference Playoff Spoilers

    Mar 31, 2010, 9:20 PM EDT

    So you’re a fan of the Bruins, Rangers, Thrashers, Canadiens or Flyers in the Eastern Conference and you’ve chewed off your fingernails in preparation for the final two weeks of the season. First off, that’s gross so knock it off.  Secondly, your team has given you heart palpitations all season long and now it’s flat-line…

  12. NHL Playoffs Update: Chicago keeps stumbling

    Mar 31, 2010, 10:54 AM EDT

    After all of my huffing and puffing about nobody in the East stepping up when it counted, the Bruins, Thrashers and Rangers all won big games and kept the race for the 6th-8th spots increasingly tight. In the West, it’s starting to get frustrating for the Coyotes. This is a relatively young team and despite…

  13. The PHT Nightcap – Tuesday, March 30

    Mar 31, 2010, 12:40 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    We put a lot of content on this blog each day, and we understand it can be a bit tough to keep track of everything. So at the end of the day we’ll put up a nightly recap of all of that day’s news. Presenting the Pro Hockey Talk Nightcap: Goal of the Night: Brent…

  14. Tonight's biggest games: Closing the gap

    Mar 30, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Tuesday’s games are full of intrigue. There are two games that didn’t make the top three that are fairly interesting, but it seems that we know more or less the fate of the Capitals-Senators and Blackhawks-Blues. Since profiling all of today’s nine games might be a bit much, here are the three best. Two of…

  15. NHL Playoffs Update: No one wants 8th spot

    Mar 30, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    How about this. We just skip the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs altogether, and let the top four teams in the conference just move on without worry or fear of anyone getting hurt in a four-game sweep. Because right now, I’m convinced that no one wants to make be in the playoffs in…

  16. Tonight's games

    Mar 29, 2010, 6:50 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Time is a-wastin’ so let’s get right to the previews. Expect cutesy lead paragraphs to resume soon enough. Buffalo Sabres (41-23-10, 92 pts) at Boston Bruins (34-28-12, 80 pts) 7:00 PM ET Buffalo certainly has a lot less to play for in this one, but they could also be getting a taste test of a…

  17. NHL Playoffs Update: Previewing tonight's action

    Mar 29, 2010, 5:40 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    I apologize for not having an update based on last night’s action, so I thought we’d merge the update from last night’s games into a preview for tonight’s games, and focus on the ones that truly affect the playoff standings. The big news from yesterday in the East was the loss by the New Jersey…

  18. Mike Green's case for the Norris Trophy

    Mar 29, 2010, 2:57 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    We’re big fans of Mike Green here at Pro Hockey Talk. We’ve talked about how his numbers compare to some of the greatest all-time defensemen, and the PHT readers all agree that Green is the best offensive defenseman currently playing in the NHL. But is it enough for a Norris Trophy? Mike Brophy of…

  19. Analyzing the race for the East's bottom 3 seeds

    Mar 28, 2010, 8:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Eastern Conference’s lower seed situation is murky to say the least. The bottom three seeds could go to any combination of Montreal, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta or the Rangers. Some teams have better chances than others, but the 6th-seed Canadiens are only 6 points ahead of 10th place New York. With this muddy picture in…

  20. NHL Playoffs Update: Flyers sinking

    Mar 28, 2010, 11:12 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Now we have some movement. Some major shuffling last night in the NHL standings, as Detroit jumps to 6th in the West and the Philadelphia Flyers threaten to fall completely out of the playoff race as their goaltending issues continue to haunt them. The Phoenix Coyotes continue to hum along, and are keeping pace with…

  21. The NHL's leaders in giving and taking hits

    Mar 27, 2010, 8:50 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Once again, I would like to propose a nickname for Dennis Seidenberg: “Pain Sponge.” The Bruins defenseman already earned Brownie Points for leading the league in blocked shots, but apparently he has also taken the most non-puck abuse to boot. Behind the Net published some fantastic stats showing which players take and receive the most checks. I’ll…

  22. Looking back at Pat Burns' coaching career

    Mar 26, 2010, 10:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s been a month of largely unhappy news (and discussion) in the NHL, but this story about an arena being named after former NHL coach Pat Burns positively devastated me. Here are a few excerpts from a rather heart-wrenching AP story. A thin and frail Pat Burns said he’s honored to have an arena named after him,…

  23. Iginla: "It's good that there's change."

    Mar 26, 2010, 4:33 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Matt Cooke’s hit on Marc Savard will go down as a turning point in the history of the NHL. It set about a change in the rule book and hopefully it will be deemed as when the league finally realized the damage such hit can cause. Jarome Iginla, a former teammate of Savard’s, feels that…

  24. Thrashers hold 'closed-door meeting'

    Mar 26, 2010, 1:47 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Atlanta Thrashers have disappointed me. I was hopeful that there would be two ‘non-traditional hockey market’ teams in the playoffs this year that no one expected to be there; Phoenix is making a bunch of noise in the West and the Thrashers looked like they could sneak into the playoffs in the East. Of…

  25. NHL Playoffs Update: Calgary's hopes dwindle

    Mar 26, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    What a crazy, crazy night we had in the NHL. Seven teams that are not currently in the playoffs beat teams that will be (or should be) in the playoffs, with only Montreal and San Jose saving face against inferior teams. Another, Calgary, squandered a chance to inch closer to idle Detroit as they gave…
