    Another home ice win for the Isles, even if it wasn't pretty. They gave the Devils and their young goalie from Farmingville a point, but they grinded it out and both Kyle Okposo and Josh Bailey took the game in the shoot out. Confidence is the key.

  • How I Shoot Hockey Games

    Jerseys and Hockey Love
    James Gralian
    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…

    No. 1 Star: Michael Hutchinson, Winnipeg Jets The Jets’ netminder kept rolling by stopping 29 shots as Winnipeg downed the Boston Bruins 2-1. Hutchinson won for the third times in four starts. Mathieu Perreault’s goal late in the second period snapped a 1-1 deadlock and stood as the game-winning tally.  No. 2 Star: Patrik Elias, New Jersey Elias scored his second goal in three games and later put home the only goal in the shootout as the Devils beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2.

  • Evgeni Nabokov would like a second chance at this Patrik Elias goal (Video)

    The New Jersey Devils edged the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 after a shootout Friday night to snap a six-game losing streak. They jumped on Evgeni Nabokov in the first period scoring twice before Nikita Kucherov would force overtime by scoring with 41 seconds left in the third. Late in the first, Patrik Elias put the Devils up 2-0 in nifty fashion. Entering the Tampa zone one-on-one with Matt Carle, Elias turned on the Patrick Kane Mode on his controller and performed a spin-o-rama backhand that knuckled by Nabokov: Such a helpless feeling for Nabokov. He’s in position ready for a shot and the…

    Tired of hearing "Holiday Sweater" over and over again in your head? Probably not, because that San Jose Sharks video is awesome. But the Pittsburgh Penguins sure did give the Sharks a nice run for NHL holiday video awesomeness in their spoof of the movie "Christmas Vacation." The video below: The Penguins buried the lead unfortunately. We had to wait until the end to see Sidney Crosby yell "Where's the Tylenol?" and Evgeni Malkin doing his best Cousin Eddie with "Bingo."  Nice hat Geno.  In that sense, it was almost like watching the credits in a Marvel action movie.  Regardless, there…

    Cape Cod, October 2009I sang “On Eagle’s Wings” from the front pew shared with my brothers. The urn storing my father’s remains rested on a table a few feet in front of us as hundreds of his friends and customers—several wearing hockey jerseys representing Fort Collins Muffler & Automotive—sang, too.The lyrics, displayed on a white space above the altar, reminded me of Dad’s favorite minor league hockey team, the Colorado Eagles.

    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…

    Jesus loves donuts. I know this because I read it in a wonderful novel: American Savior, by Roland Merullo. A best-selling and award-winning author, Merullo tends to inject subtle donut and/or hockey references into his books. I read Breakfast with Buddha in 2012 and Lunch with Buddha in 2013. 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…

    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…

Even though there appeared to be no malice on the part of Stoner, it is my opinion that a formal hearing should have been convened based on the illegal cross-check which caused Pacioretty to launch face-first into the glass and resulted in injury. At the very least, Stoner should have been be fined for the careless act that warranted a cross-checking major and game misconduct in…

    Hockey has been called the fastest game on Earth. Though fans of Jai Alai or Hurling may argue the point, it is certainly the fastest game where the players (not the balls, pucks or other objects) are self-propelled across a slick surface and not mechanically aided by a horse, car or some other instrument. The other major team sports (football, basketball, soccer and baseball) are virtually in slow motion by comparison. The speed of the game played on ice is definitely one of its biggest attractions. With speed, comes a degree of danger, which no doubt serves to heighten the attraction.

    The Devil, her Sharks teammates, several parents, one grandpa, Momma and I embarked on a 6+ hour road trip this past weekend to play in a tournament in Pittsburgh. This city is one of a few U.S. hockey hotbeds thanks to guys like Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr and some kid name Sid, who’ve led the success of the Pittsburgh Penguins over a couple of decades. One of the advantages of playing so far away from home is the opportunity to play against teams you won’t otherwise compete against during the regular season. Indeed this particular tournament offered up three U.S. based teams and…

The Jets stayed with the Bruins all night, put up quite a fight, and stayed with the Bruins through regulation and into overtime. Just 2 and a half minutes into overtime however Dougie Hamilton crossed the Blue line and fired a shot into the top part of the net past Michael Hutchinson giving Boston a 2-1 overtime win.

Winnipeg won the first contest 2-1 in Buffalo, a not so inspiring effort that night but a win none the less. The biggest difference now however is the Buffalo Sabres who may be one of the hottest teams in the NHL, winning 4 straight and 5 of 6.

    It’s not a particularly shocking revelation: The Leafs have enough talent to beat any team in this League, but they can be made to look awful by much less talented teams if they think talent alone is going to be enough on any given night. They’re not the only team for which those rules apply, but Toronto’s 14-3-2 record versus above-.500 teams compared to their 5-7-2 record versus below-.500 teams is quite the confounding incongruity.

    The opening period of tonight’s game was similar to the Leafs’ last road outing against Detroit. The difference was that the Hurricanes were able to take advantage of their dominance. They not only out-chanced Toronto 8-3 at ES, they finished the period up 2-0. Toronto had some fightback early in the second, and while Carolina dominated the middle of the period, a late goal gave the Leafs some hope.

    The league’s hottest team pays a visit to its coldest tonight in Carolina. The two teams are riding opposite streaks, the Leafs winners of six straight and the Hurricanes losers of six consecutive. With Alex Semin, Jiri Tlusty and Jordan Staal out hurt, the Hurricanes lineup looks positively destitute. Their leading scorer is defenceman Justin Faulk with 17 points.

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.
