    BROSSARD – In today’s notebook, Therrien mixes things up on the power play, Gilbert talks depth on defense, and the Canadiens get set for a home-and-home with Buffalo. Trying something different: While the Canadiens’ power play has been clicking as of late, Michel Therrien’s troops still rank 25th in the league with the man advantage, lighting the lamp just 12.7 percent of the time on the year. With that in mind, the veteran bench boss decided to mix things up on Thursday at the Bell Sports Complex, sending four forwards out on the first wave of the power play, including Max…

    Award-winning author Roland Merullo loves hockey (and donuts) as much as I do. He wrote something to that effect to me and then signed his name in the copy of Lunch with Buddha I had purchased. I haven’t read all of his books, such as the one with a donut on the cover, but I will buy them because I anticipate more hockey, more donut references. But it’s more than that. The magic of Merullo is his thought-provoking style of storytelling. He makes me question my own behavior and beliefs but not in a Thou-shalt, heavy-handed fashion. His fiction is unique yet real, affirming and…

Both are gripping stories with believable characters. They traverse America in pursuit of food and spiritual nourishment, but neither novel features a character who loves donuts as much as Jesus. On the campaign trail that crisscrosses the United States—Jesus is running for president—the candidate…

    18 Nov 2014 | 11:15 am
    Many times, no one asks me what I use and how I photograph hockey games.  Well, finally, here is the answer to the questions no one asks me. Before this year, I would take two cameras to a game, a Panasonic point-and-shoot like the Lumix ZS20, and a bridge camera (between a point-and-shoot and a DSLR), such as the Panasonic DMC-FZ28.  I like the Panasonic because their photos looked great for the camera.  They weren’t high-end cameras, but they worked well enough. Now I have a  DSLR and I love it.  I got the least expensive Nikon, the D3300.  It doesn’t have some of the…

    The road to Hell is paved.  It leads up US-45 in Wisconsin, takes exit 68 to Pleasant Drive, then a right on South Main.  There, in a small building set neatly into a hill, lies the Kettle Moraine Ice Center.  It’s gatekeepers dress in Blaze Orange.  They know your weaknesses. For the Monroe Blues on Saturday night, Hell took the form of 200 feet by 85 feet of ice, and while lasting only sixty minutes of game time, it will likely stick with the players forever. For the rest of us, it was a jaw-dropping display of domination in hockey. Welcome to Hell.  I mean, the Kettle Moraine…

    When you go to a minor league hockey game, you are almost guaranteed to be seated in an arena, or some sort of professional facility.  Many are old and decaying, many have a certain character and uniqueness that came from the era they were built in.  But with few exceptions (Danbury comes to mind), you will see your hockey in an arena. Jump to the American junior leagues and that guarantee goes away.  You still have arenas that are professional buildings – at what scale could be questioned – but you also have teams that play in re-purposed rec rinks.  The Keystone Ice Miners…

The BMO Harris Bradley Center (there has to be something better to call it) is also the home of the Milwaukee Bucks, the NBA team that no one has heard of.  The owners of the Bucks want a new arena, and they want the fans to pay for it, because that’s the way things work when…

  • In The Playoffs At Thanksgiving Means A Good Chance It Will Carry Over To April

    28 Nov 2014 | 7:41 am
    from Ken Campbell of The Hockey News, It’s a fairly common belief in hockey circles that if you’re in the playoffs by American Thanksgiving, chances are you’re going to be in the post-season dance five months later. So how does that notion hold up to scrutiny? Not badly, actually. But it would be very, very dangerous for the 16 teams that are in the playoffs to think they can basically put in on autopilot for the rest of the season. According to numbers crunched by over the past 10 years when they’ve actually been playing hockey on American Thanksgiving –…

We can have a little more of an interior presence.” The real positive difference this season has been where many believe it matters most -- shots allowed and goals against. Last season the Caps allowed an average of 33.5 shots per game, which ranked 27th in the NHL, and 2.79 goals against, which ranked 21st. This season they’re allowing 27.2 shots, which ranks…

Vanek has one goal (11 points) in 21 games for the Wild, while Hemsky is still goal-less, with just five helpers in 21 games. Both are on three-year deals, with Vanek making $6.5 million per, Hemsky $4 million.

    I think we all agree Black Friday is stupid. So is the black hockey sweater. Specifically the Kings, Sharks, and Islanders. The black Kings home sweater should be black on purple, not all black; it's about color schemes. Thankfully the Sharks are sending their black third jersey to Mordor in Febraury because it's been hiding their amazing solid teal sweater in the playoffs. But I'm most upset about the Islanders. Their iconic blue and orange that endures from the 70's and 80's should be worn like a badge. They should wear it like the Bruins yellow and black (not ALL black, it's about color…

    JETBLAST St. Louis Blues (13-6-1) at Winnipeg Jets (10-8-3) 3:30 p.m., MTS Centre, TV: TSN3  Radio:TSN 1290 After earning a 3-2 win Saturday afternoon the St. Louis Blues go in to Winnipeg for a date with their division rivals the Winnipeg Jets. Playing back to back is never easy, and with just under a 24 hour turnaround this may be just the advantage Winnipeg needs to take down the Central division leading Blues. Coming into this season this was one of the matchups that many Jets fans were looking forward to the most. That is at least in part due to the way their last match up last…

    JETBLAST Winnipeg Jets (10-7-3) at Detroit Red Wings (9-4-5) 7:00 p.m., MTS Centre, TV: TSN3  Radio:TSN 1290 A rare foe visits the MTS Centre Thursday afternoon when the Detroit Red Wings come to town. The Wings and Jets have had minimal contact since Winnipeg returned to the league. These teams have always been in separate conference, with the Wings swapping over to the East at the same time the Jets moved to the West. It was of course Detroit who ended Winnipegs time in the league the first time around, beating them 4-1 in the 6th game to eliminate the Jets not only from the 1996…

    A point out of a visit with the league’s best and highest-scoring team (15-4-2 with a +27 goal differential after this win) is something any team in the League will take, no questions asked. Especially if you spot them a 2-0 lead. The Leafs had yet another poor start, scored on in the first five minutes for the eighth time this season, with Morgan Rielly and Jonathan Bernier losing sight of the puck coming out from behind The post Game Review: Game #22, Pittsburgh Penguins 4 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 3 (OT) appeared first on Maple Leafs Hotstove.

    Toronto finished its season series with Pittsburgh, ending up clearly second-best in chances in all three games. In this one, though, they managed to earn a point after they scored three times in the second, as they responded well after falling behind 2-0. While the Leafs had the better of the scoring in the second, Pittsburgh still had more of the chances. The Leafs then played a tight third period, limiting Pittsburgh’s chances and holding The post Game 22 Scoring Chances: Penguins 4 vs. Maple Leafs 3 (OT) appeared first on Maple Leafs Hotstove.

    The post Martin St. Louis Returns To Tampa Bay appeared first on Pucks On The Fly. The likelihood of making an NHL roster as an undrafted college free agent? Low. The career expectancy of a diminutive 5 foot 8 inch, 180 lb. forward in the NHL? Short.  A captain for captain trade in the NHL? Never happened. Well, until last season when right wing Martin St. Louis was sent from the Tampa Bay Lightning to the New York Rangers for right wing Ryan Callahan with playoff and signing implications which resulted into two first round picks for the Lightning. That is all recent history, but tonight St.
