  1. Tonight's (biggest) games: Could Phoenix be #1?

    Mar 23, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    There are ten games tonight and most of them will affect the playoff races to some degree. However, for the sake of everyone’s sanity, I’ll just take a look at the three that might be the most impactful. Boston Bruins (32-27-12, 76 pts) at Atlanta Thrashers (32-29-11, 75 pts) 7:00 PM ET This game could…

    Just three games last night, but two of the outcomes had some major ramifications in the playoffs race in the West. The Ottawa Senators finally — finally! — won a game and stopped the bleeding. Eastern Conference DIV GP W L OT L10 Streak 1 Washington Capitals SE 72 48 14 10 7-1-2 Won 1…

  3. Marty Turco era in Dallas coming to an end

    Mar 22, 2010, 5:50 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The writing has been on the wall nearly all season long, but the Marty Turco era in Dallas is coming to an end. With the Stars seven points out of 8th place in the West and with just ten games remaining the team has started to look towards next season and the future, a future…

  4. Bergeron to visit injured HS player in hospital

    Comments Off

    Patrice Bergeron is headed with the Bruins down to Atlanta for a big game against the Thrashers tomorrow night. While in Georgia, he’ll be visiting with Norwood High School hockey player Matt Brown, who suffered a serious head and neck injury in January and is being treated at the Shepard Center. Brown was skating hard…

    Now before I get into the meat of this post, I want to make it clear that I don’t necessarily think that trading Ilya Kovalchuk made the Atlanta Thrashers automatically better. But I guess that’s what this article is saying, so….take it was you will. The numbers are interesting and speak for themselves. The Atlanta…

  7. NHL playoffs update: Sharks drowning in San Jose

    Mar 22, 2010, 9:29 AM EDT

    In one, busy day the playoff picture all at once cleared up a bit and became more crowded and muddled. In the East, the No. 2 seed is still up for grabs while New Jersey continues to knock on Pittsburgh’s door for the division lead. In the West, the Coyotes continue their incredible surge and…

  9. Puck bounces off Lucic into Boston net, lead down to 2-1

    Mar 21, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    So, the other day, I discussed the fact that Chris Drury should thank his “immature” teammates for carrying his dead weight. Well, 19 year old defenseman Mike Del Zotto sent a seeing eye slapper from the point which then deflected off of Bruins winger Milan Lucic and past Tukka Rask for the Rangers’ first goal…

  10. Satan makes it 1-0 Boston

    Mar 21, 2010, 2:05 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    A lot of times, one team will dominate a game for a considerable amount of time only to fall behind after failing to score. This didn’t happen so far, though, as the Bruins were finally rewarded for their superior effort with a late second period goal. Right after Daniel Paille failed to score on a…

  11. Video: Prospal's hit

    Mar 21, 2010, 1:39 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised that another questionable hit happened. In this case, Vinny Prospal is guilty of a hit from behind that resulted in a boarding penalty. As I said in the chat, it’s shocking that the Bruins received a match penalty for the play. If the league wants to curb these…

  13. NHL playoffs standings update: Phoenix eyes top spot

    Mar 21, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    We’re getting near the part of the season where every game involves a heavy dose of scoreboard watching. Teams not only need their two points, but some help from other teams to either grab a playoff spot or take a better playoff position headed into the post season. We’re going to start updating the playoff…

  14. Notes from 'Hot Stove': Boston's locker room poison

    Mar 21, 2010, 3:30 AM EDT

    Normally I wouldn’t post so late, but Chris Kontos of The Royal Half passed along this video of Glen Healy on Hockey Night in Canada, which also included an interesting nugget from Pierre LeBrun on the Phoenix Coyotes ownership situation. First, let’s touch on Healy’s comments. Healy said that the locker room was “poisonous” and that they have…

    Boston Bruins vs. New York Rangers 12:30 p.m. EST – Sunday, March 21, 2010Live on NBC Let’s face it. The Boston Bruins and the New York Rangers are flailing. While they tread water and fail to actually grasp hold and take charge of the situation they’ve each been given the Atlanta Thrashers have snuck up…

  16. Counterpoint: Why the Rangers will make the playoffs

    Mar 20, 2010, 2:45 PM EDT

    Boston Bruins vs. New York Rangers 12:30 p.m. EST – Sunday, March 21, 2010Live on NBC I can sum up why the New York Rangers will pass the Boston Bruins for 8th in the East and grab a playoff spot in two words: Sean. Avery. No other player in the NHL has the ability to…

    Boston Bruins vs. New York Rangers 12:30 p.m. EST – Sunday, March 21, 2010 Live on NBC The most important thing to remember here is: the Eastern Conference isn’t very good, particularly after you pass the handful of elites at the top. Just look at it this way; the 11th and 12th ranked West teams…

  19. Pens win tepid bout with Boston 3-0

    Mar 18, 2010, 9:37 PM EDT

    Going into this game, the questions seemed to be: which Penguin is going to have trouble walking tomorrow? Will the Boston Bruins wreak havoc on the Penguins legally or through dirty hits? Who will bleed his own blood? By the end, the real question was: do the Bruins even have a pulse? Matt Cooke paid…

    The Bruins have said all the right things about this game not being a bloodbath. Still, just in case, we’ll be keeping an eye on this one tonight. If there is any particularly noteworthy violence or other tomfoolery, we shall let you know. Stay tuned.

  21. Tortorella and Drury disagree on Rangers' maturity

    Mar 18, 2010, 11:56 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Chris Drury isn’t known as someone who says things just to stir the pot. So when he calls out his teammates and his team, chances are there’s some truth and meaning behind his words. From Dan Martin of the New York Post: “Immaturity,” he said. “We’d better grow up fast or we’re going to be…

  22. Rink to Rink: Detroit wins battle for 8th place

    Mar 16, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Thankfully, the hockey (and not a debate about hits) was center stage Monday night. As the league tries to add a face-saving rule or two, I think we can all agree that it would be pleasant if this issue “worked itself out” – at least for a few merciful days. We could use more nights…

  23. Boston should make Rask their No.1 goalie

    Mar 15, 2010, 9:10 PM EDT

    Sure, it’s just one game, but seeing Tim Thomas get pulled in the first period after allowing three New Jersey Devils goals makes me think that the Boston Bruins should suck it up and make young goalie Tuukka Rask their true No. 1 goalie down the stretch. No doubt about it, this isn’t the ideal situation, but…

    Ugh, I guess we all better strap in for 24/7 dirty hit talk eh? It seems like you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting … someone who’s discussing another violent and/or illegal moment in hockey (don’t worry NHL, the college kids are doing it too!). Since we only have three games I’ll go in order…

  25. The Colin Campbell Crisis Collection

    Mar 15, 2010, 8:00 AM EDT

    Colin Campbell certainly has been a busy man the last few weeks. As a matter of fact, the seemingly constant barrage of dirty/questionable/legal-but-reprehensible hits have kept us quite busy too. (It’s never a good sign when you’re perusing Web sites about neurosurgery.) Anyway, it occurred to us that there have been so many posts regarding controversial…
