    PANTHERS (34-26-14) @ CANADIENS (46-21-8) The Canadiens will try to lock up a playoff spot when the Florida Panthers visit the Bell Centre on Saturday.

The Panthers meanwhile, are still in the hunt for a wild card spot, sitting just three points back of the Bruins and the Ottawa Senators. The Habs will be looking to make the most of home…

    MONTREAL – Max Pacioretty has come a long way since his playing days at the University of Michigan, and his former linemates couldn’t be prouder of his accomplishments. Back in 2007-08, the Canadiens’ No. 67 played his one and only season with college hockey’s winningest program, sporting the maize and blue as a freshman on a line with captain Kevin Porter and alternate captain Chad Kolarik, both of whom were seniors at the time. The trio was widely considered the best in the country, combining for 78 goals and 158 points in 33 games, and pacing the Wolverines to a 33-6-4 overall…

He played one outstanding game on Thursday night, turning aside 39 shots to pick up his sixth straight victory between the pipes. Pavelec was particularly good during the first period when Michel Therrien’s troops racked up 20 shots on goal trying to break the game wide open.

One of my bucket list items / dream vacations was to go to Ottawa and skate the Rideau Canal.  It’s a wonderful experience, and if you are a skater, pencil it in on your itinerary.  Treat yourself, and treat it like a ski vacation. We flew in on a Friday with enough time for a brief skate and take in a 67s game.  The arena itself makes going to the game worth it. This is TD Place, the home of the Ottawa…

    Did you see Phil Kessel lash out at a reporter yesterday after Randy Carlyle was fired from the Leafs?  The Toronto Star’s Dave Feschuk asked Kessel if he was uncoachable.  It’s a pretty rough question to ask.  Kessel, obviously miffed, answers, which takes some courage and anger management skills.  Then Feschuk presses and asks again, which is where things go awry. It reminded me of something I saw in the Edmonton Sun after Viktor Fasth was pulled from a game and yelled at the Oilers bench: There was a scene in the Oilers dressing room as the media headed to the goaltenders…

    The New York Rangers and Columbus Blue Jackets made two blockbuster deals in 2012 and 2013.

Several months later during the following season the teams yet again made a major headline trade.

With playoff time around the corner, it was easy to dismiss Nashville’s Stanley Cup hopes. After blowing a third period lead for the second consecutive game in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Minnesota Wild on March 17, the Predators’ unforgiving schedule allowed them to have a three day rest. At one point during those three days, someone flipped a switch, and the Predators returned to form. (Rob…

    - We know who the bottom five teams will be at the end of the season. What we don’t know is what the final order will be. From worst record to 3rd worst it’s between Buffalo at 47, Arizona at 50 and Edmonton at 53. Then 4th and 5th worst is between Toronto at 60 … Continue reading Around the NHL with #TheNLKing → The post Around the NHL with #TheNLKing appeared first on GETREALHOCKEY.COM.

  • Saturday Mashup: 3rd overall within reach, Cameranesi with 2-pt game in UMD regional semifinal win

    The Oilers winning two in a row has them gaining ground fast on a Leafs team that’s barely gained a point in three months. Once thought an impossible feat (getting within shouting distance of the Oilers and Coyotes), Edmonton is now just three points back with seven games remaining. Catching 2nd-last Arizona, who trail by 6 points, is pretty unlikely unless the Leafs lose out and Arizona finishes “strong” (.500ish). But hey, never count this Leafs team out!     The Marlies play this afternoon at 3 p.m. in a game with serious playoff implications, as their…
  • Game 75 Scoring Chances: Panthers 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1

    Like their last game, against the Wild, the Toronto Maple Leafs started well against the Florida Panthers, out-chancing them in the first period. Things then fell apart in the second, with two quick Florida goals opening up a lead. That lead seemed to break the Leafs, who were out-chanced 7-2 in the second half of the period, and fell further behind, leading to Jonathan Bernier getting replaced by James Reimer. Florida then shut down the game in the third, and while Toronto pulled one back, that was all they got, with the Panthers earning a critical win in their playoff chase. The post Game…

  • Thursday Mashup: Bailey set to debut, Marlies within a point of playoffs, lottery date set

    There’s at least one playoff chase alive and well in Toronto: Byron Froese, who the Marlies just signed to an AHL contract extension for next season, scored twice to lead the Marlies to a 3-2 win over OKC yesterday afternoon  (Froese now sits fourth on the team in goal scoring with 14, despite playing just 34 games). With 12 games to go, the Marlies are now just one point back of the eighth seed and play the eighth place Hamilton Bulldogs this Saturday. Also worth noting – now riding a four game win streak, Christopher Gibson’s save percentage has risen to an The post…
  • Leafs Notebook – March 25

    One of the main questions in Toronto down the stretch has been whether or not Dave Nonis will be General Manager of the team moving forward. It is a reasonable question, but perhaps it is not the right one. More appropriately, is this a position that anyone in the league with experience will actually covet? There are the obvious reasons one can think of as to why an experienced manager would not want to take control of the Toronto Maple Leafs. The team is lousy, they have an admittedly shallow prospect pool, the team is riddled with controversy and has The post Leafs Notebook – March 25…
