While we’re in the predicting mood, PHT takes a look at what we think shakes loose in the Western Conference finals between Vancouver and San Jose.
May 13, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT
Last night’s Game 7 gave us more than a few thoughts about what’s going on including takes on Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton, Antti Niemi, and Jimmy Howard.
May 13, 2011, 1:45 AM EDT
Now that we’re down to the Conference finals in the East and West, we want to know… Who do you have winning it all now?
May 13, 2011, 1:21 AM EDT
A classic series ends in a classic Game 7 that sees the Sharks hang on to beat the Red Wings and move on to the Western Conference finals.
May 11, 2011, 12:39 AM EDT
San Jose fans are getting a sick feeling in their gut right about now as the Red Wings have come back from a 3-0 series hole to force a Game 7 after a 3-1 win in Detroit in Game 6.
May 9, 2011, 12:32 AM EDT
Things got a bit more uncomfortable for San Jose as Detroit used a three goal third period to come back and beat the Sharks 4-3 to force a Game 6 on Tuesday.
May 6, 2011, 11:00 PM EDT
Detroit staved off elimination in Game 4 thanks to the work of captain Nicklas Lidstrom and a late, clutch goal from Darren Helm.
May 5, 2011, 2:39 AM EDT
Devin Setoguchi redeemed himself for a potentially game-losing mistake by instead scoring his hat trick goal in overtime to give the Sharks a 4-3 win and a 3-0 series lead on Detroit.
May 1, 2011, 7:32 PM EDT
Niclas Wallin was Game 2′s surprise hero of the day as his sneaky shot proved to be the game-winner on a day that saw goaltending dominate the highlights.
May 1, 2011, 5:20 PM EDT
In a period without scoring, Detroit’s Jimmy Howard shines stopping 19 shots in the second period alone.
May 1, 2011, 4:13 PM EDT
Penalties for everyone in the first, but the Sharks take control thanks to Ian White’s power play goal and lead 1-0 after one.
May 1, 2011, 2:55 PM EDT
Ready for Game 2 between Detroit and San Jose? We know you are and you can watch it online with us.
May 1, 2011, 12:55 PM EDT
Game 2 can be pivotal in a series and the Capitals and Red Wings find themselves hoping to make sure they don’t head into Game 3 in an 0-2 hole.
May 1, 2011, 5:27 AM EDT
Antti Niemi came into the Red Wings-Sharks series as one of San Jose’s biggest question marks. If last year’s Cup run with Chicago is any indication, the Sharks would be wise to stick with Niemi through his ups and downs.
Apr 30, 2011, 5:31 PM EDT
Last night in San Jose, Game 1 of the Sharks’ series with the Detroit Red Wings was a classic just as we figured it might be. The game saw the Wings get out first with a goal from Nicklas Lidstrom only to see the Sharks tie it up in the third period thanks the Sharks…

If yesterday’s one game was the appetizer, today is the main course with a pair of series kicking off their own second round matchups.
Apr 28, 2011, 7:24 PM EDT
With Vancouver and Nashville kicking off the second round tonight, we make our own predictions on what we think happens in the Western Conference second round.
Apr 27, 2011, 2:40 PM EDT
With the Western Conference semifinal rematch from last season between San Jose and Detroit, can we expect that this one will live more up to the hype? You better believe it. How do you think it will turn out though?
Apr 27, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT
Alex Burrows’ Game 7 couldn’t have been more frantic and maddening. Good thing for him it came out positively. Also we look at how Ryan Miller and Corey Crawford’s nights compared and we hope that referee Kevin Pollock’s bad night is just that.
Apr 26, 2011, 1:55 AM EDT
The 2011 playoffs continue to dispel “choking” arguments, as Joe Thornton scored the overtime goal that ended the Kings-Sharks series. Read all about another dramatic game in this post.
Apr 25, 2011, 12:27 PM EDT
If we’re understanding the playoffs correctly, Pittsburgh and San Jose should be huge favorites on the road tonight to win their series. Tampa Bay and Los Angeles will look to protect home ice and force Game 7s.
Apr 24, 2011, 10:46 PM EDT
Even though San Jose’s Antti Niemi is having a less-than-stellar playoffs, he’s getting the call once again to start Game 6 against Los Angeles.
Apr 24, 2011, 1:47 AM EDT
Jonathan Quick made a Kings’ franchise playoff record 51 saves to help the Kings overcome a 30-shot difference and beat the Sharks 3-1. Read all about the stark contrast between his game and Antti Niemi’s debacle in this post.
Apr 21, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT
Today’s action sees the Canadiens look to put a stranglehold on the series with Boston, Vancouver to wrap things up against Chicago, and to see if the Kings can pick themselves up off the floor.
Apr 20, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT
