    Comments Off

    Let’s take a look at some of the injury report news from around the NHL. Zdeno Chara is a game-time decision for tonight’s match up against the Philadelphia Flyers. The Boston Globe reports that the tree-sized* defenseman has been dealing with soreness in his “lower body.” (I wish I could be that vague when I call in…

    Mar 11, 2010, 7:45 AM EDT

    This isn’t going away anytime soon so we might as well keep covering it.

    Mar 10, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    We will hopefully find out today or tomorrow on whether Marc Savard’s season is in jeopardy after suffering a concussion on Sunday, but the news isn’t looking good. From the Boston Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa: “The only update I’ve had is that today, he’s definitely not feeling better,” coach Claude Julien said yesterday afternoon. “It’s been…

    A couple of big games tonight with playoff spots on the line. Calgary Flames (32-24-9, 73 PTS) @ Detroit Red Wings (31-22-12, 74 PTS); 7:00 p.m. EST — Jarome Iginla hasn’t scored against the Red Wings in 19 regular season games. They’ll need him to make a difference tonight, as the Wings have rediscovered their…

  6. Zdeno Chara out tonight against Maple Leafs

    Mar 9, 2010, 2:31 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Bruins fight for a playoff spot just got a bit harder. Facing the possibility of losing Marc Savard for the season, the Bruins are without Zdeno Chara for at least tonight. Chara is having a bit of a down year offensively, just like the rest of the Bruins, but for a team that is…

  7. Savard could miss the rest of the season

    Mar 9, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    The latest news on Marc Savard’s concussion issues represents one of the worst (although not the most surprising) scenarios: he may miss the rest of the season. This report comes from the Twitter feed of Chris Johnson, a hockey writer for The Canadian Press. Peter Chiarelli says Marc Savard suffered a “serious” concussion, reiterates that he could…

  8. Savard's diagnosis: Grade II concussion

    Mar 8, 2010, 6:40 PM EDT

    Boston.com’s Bruins Blog reports that Bruins center Marc Savard has been diagnosed with a Grade II concussion due to a hit by Penguins forward Matt Cooke. According to the report, “Savard said that he felt like he was hit by a bus.” Apparently the league will not yet make a judgment on the extent of a likely…

  9. Rink to Rink: Revenge of the fallen (goalies)

    Mar 7, 2010, 10:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    With all the Game of the Week coverage, I didn’t want to neglect the other games too much. After all, I’d hate to see these games rebel against their latch key upbringing, make horrible life decisions just to get attention and then ultimately grow to resent me. Or, uh, something like that. Anyway, let’s recap…

  10. Savard suffers concussion from hit by Cooke

    Mar 7, 2010, 7:15 PM EDT

    It’s already been a long, injury-ravaged season for Marc Savard and things just got a lot worse. He left the ice on a stretcher and suffered a concussion because of a hit by Pittsburgh Penguins forward Matt Cooke in this afternoon’s game between the Bruins and the Penguins. Here’s a (somewhat low quality) video of the…

  11. Tonight's games: They can't all be gems

    Not to be ungrateful, NHL, because you are giving fans 8 games tonight but … wow. There isn’t one game that jumps out at me as a barn burner. Really, I hate to say it, but the barn is frozen. Anyway, let’s take a look at tonight’s weak sauce slate of games. Usually, I’ll choose…

  12. Tuukka Rask day-to-day with knee injury

    Mar 6, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    For the time being, struggling Vezina winner Tim Thomas will end his long national bench warming nightmare. Constant typo threat Tuukka Rask (it might be worth the cost of a plane ticket to Boston just to hear his name pronounced in those parts) started the last seven games before going down with a knee injury.…

    More studious hockey fans probably aren’t bothered by this, but on occasion, I will be taken off guard by an early Saturday afternoon game. Well, this happened more often in my uncouth college years, but that’s another discussion for another time.  Let’s take a look at today’s two afternoon games (tonight’s games will be previewed…

  14. Thornton not embarrassed by Lucic's fight

    Mar 5, 2010, 1:50 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    In last night’s Toronto and Boston game, a couple of heavy hitters took part is what I considered a fairly spirited fight. The Bruins’ Milan Lucic and the Leafs’ Colton Orr squared off, in about as equal a fight as you could hope for, size-wise. The fight was a lengthy and if you would choose…

  15. Tonight's games: New kids off the block

    To extend my “trade deadline is like Christmas for hockey fans” analogy, tonight’s games are essentially the moment when you hook up that NES and start shooting fireballs at turtles in Super Mario Bros. Of course, if your team made bad trades, it might be more like receiving “E.T.” for your Atari. Let’s take a…

  18. 2010 NHL Trade Deadline: Derek Morris traded to Phoenix for hope and a prayer

    Mar 3, 2010, 10:51 AM EDT

    Derek Morris is headed back to Phoenix in what is purely a salary dump by the Boston Bruins and nothing else. The Coyotes sent a 4th round pick in 2011 to Boston (in what is widely considered a weak draft), so this was just a case of Boston needing to clear up some room in…

    Mar 2, 2010, 7:10 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    After waiving him in February, the Anaheim Ducks managed to unload Nick Boynton to the Chicago Blackhawks for the always-amusing “future considerations” according to The Globe and Mail‘s James Mirtle. Here were a few of Mirtle’s reactions on Twitter: “Anaheim’s a team that has to stay on budget and can’t afford to pay guys in the AHL.” Mirtle…

With 24 teams returning to action, let’s take a look at each game beginning with the most intriguing match-ups. Today’s Best New Jersey Devils (37-21-3, 77 pts) at San Jose Sharks (40-13-9, 89…

  21. The Winter Classic at the Death Star? The horror!!

    Mar 1, 2010, 7:02 PM EDT

    A few months ago I wrote an article on my old blog about the possibility of a Winter Classic being held at Cowboys Stadium. The post was based on some murmurs that the Cowboys had talked with NHL officials at a possible outdoor hockey game, although those inquiries had never been truly confirmed. Until now.…
