  • Jack Jablonski will lead world’s largest stick-tap for spinal research

    Greg Wyshynski
    30 Oct 2014 | 7:59 am
    When a player is seriously injured during a hockey game, it’s tradition for both teammates and opponents to tap their sticks on the ice in a salute to the fallen comrade.  Jack Jablonski was that player in Dec. 2011, when an accidental check from behind left him paralyzed. Since then, he’s inspired awareness for spinal cord injury research, ranging from fundraising to a celebrity prom date. On Saturday, Nov. 1, Jablonski and his organization, the “Bel13ve In Miracles Foundation,” are holding “A Night To Bel13ve” at the Minnesota Wild’s game vs. the Dallas Stars (nee North…
  • Did threat of appeal reduce John Moore suspension?

    Greg Wyshynski
    30 Oct 2014 | 6:38 am
    John Moore of the New York Rangers was suspended five games by the NHL on Wednesday for his second illegal hit to the head in the span of 12 games, which doesn’t just make him a repeat offender but a borderline serial one.  Why five games? It’s sorta the going rate for illegal hits to the head that result in injuries. Ryan White on Kent Huskins in April 2013. Deryk Engelland, also a repeat offender, got five for a hit on Justin Abdelkader in Dec. 2013. Zac Rinaldo and Mike Rupp both got four-gamers for hits last April. But Larry Brooks of the NY Post has another theory: The NHL went five…

    29 Oct 2014 | 2:54 pm
    The Arizona Coyotes face the Florida Panthers on Thursday night, and Mike Smith will tend goal for them. Normally, this wouldn’t be news: He’s the starter, after all. But he’s also been terrible this season: 2-4-0, with a 4.29 GAA and an .858 save percentage. At even strength, even worse: .855 save percentage. This includes the 7-3 drubbing from the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday.  “Smitty had an average night. Again. And we didn’t play that well in front of him,” said Coach Dave Tippett. Tippett’s defended Smith throughout the team’s struggles, and he has a point: The…

    The Worcester Sharks entered the third period of Sunday’s DCU Center matinee against the Portland Pirates trailing by a goal, but Freddie Hamilton and Daniil Tarasov took care of that all by themselves with Tarasov assisting on all three of Hamilton’s third period goals as the WorSharks cruised to a 4-1 win in front of a crowd listed at 2,559.

  • Game Preview: Canadiens @ Canucks

    30 Oct 2014 | 8:28 am
    CANADIENS (8-2-0) @ CANUCKS (6-3-0) The Canadiens wrap up their western Canadian road trip on Thursday with the club's annual visit to Vancouver. Coming away with at least one point in each of their last seven meetings opposite the Canucks, the Habs will try to keep that streak alive at Rogers Arena. Arriving in Edmonton last Sunday, the Canadiens were surprised 3-0 by the Oilers on Monday night before pulling off a 2-1 shootout win in Calgary on Tuesday, thanks in no small part to the efforts of Carey Price, who made 37 saves against the Flames. Price, a native of Anahim Lake, B.C., located…

Price, who won his fifth consecutive start, upped his record to 7-1-0 in eight outings thus far this season. It was also the Habs’ first victory in Calgary since January 2002. “It’s a big win for the team, and I think Carey was exceptional…

Who plays with Chris Kelly on the third line: Carl Soderberg? Reilly Smith? Jordan Caron? Matt Lindblad? Anthony Camara? “Coaches and management,” says Dennis Leary, “have…
  • Dishing Hockey and Donuts with Award-Winning Author Roland Merullo

    Jim Dwyer
    24 Aug 2014 | 9:38 am
    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

    10 Aug 2014 | 4:55 am
    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…

    A lot of AMHlers and other hockey friends have asked me when I’ll be back playing hockey.  I’m grateful for their compassion and support.Not sure, is what I tell them, or I shrug my shoulders.Have I retired?No. Well, probably. At least from real competitive hockey. Maybe not, though, from pick-up activity. My return to any form of significant exercise other than walking will depend upon what magic the hockey goods might contribute to my healing. I want to alleviate the pain incurred from surgery to fix what medical professionals refer to as athletic pubalgia and/or a sports hernia.

  • Johnstown, PA: Life After Slap Shot

    James Gralian
    29 Oct 2014 | 8:25 am
    Johnstown, Pennsylvania is known for a few things.  One was the Great Flood of 1899, when the South Fork Dam fourteen miles away broke and water as high as twenty one feet filled the valley town, killing 2,209 people. Another significant event that happened in Johnstown was the filming of the movie Slap Shot in 1976.  It sounds almost callous to mention the two events, the making of a movie and the flood that killed over two thousand people, in the same way, but both left their marks on the city. Slap Shot is thought of as the greatest hockey movie of all time.  The dialog is funny, the…

    You may not realize it, but you know the Cambria County War Memorial.  You’ve seen it before, in the film Slap Shot.  The Charlestown Chiefs were based on the Johnstown Jets of the NAHL, and the War Memorial was their home.  The year Slap Shot was released, 1977, the Jets folded and the city of Johnstown flooded. (Clicky make biggy) The last time I was in Johnstown, PA was February of 2008.  The financial crisis was still the apple of some Wall Street investor’s eye, and the team at the time was the Johnstown Chiefs of the ECHL.  You can see the posts from that trip here and…

    Friday night, I was in Dayton, OH for my first Federal Hockey League game.  The arena, the game, the fans, it was what they refer to in Slap Shot as old-time hockey.  There were a few fights.  Arguments with refs took precedence over face-offs.  The tickets were cheap.  In short, it was everything you want in a minor league hockey game. 150 miles away in Toledo, OH, the feeling was completely different.  This wasn’t your beer-swilling, fist-pumping, stained-ceiling-tile hockey game.  This was the other end of the spectrum.

    from Travis Yost of TSN, The National Hockey League’s scheduling process strikes me as a laborious task. The people responsible for creating the thirty team schedules have to take into account things like venue availability, travel burden, associated costs of travel, and competitive balance, all while trying to squeeze 2,460 games into a seven-month window. One of the things I’ve always found most interesting is how the league attempts to mitigate the number of back-to-back situations (not so eloquently referred to as “schedule losses” in NHL and NBA circles), a…

    from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, The Edmonton Oilers lost 4-1 at home to Nashville on Wednesday night, remaining winless on the season versus teams in the Western Conference but a perfect 4-0-0 against the Eastern Conference. The problem, of course, is the Oilers play more of their games in the West. They'll need to figure out Big Boy hockey if they're going to contend for a playoff spot. Meanwhile, Pekka Rinne improved to 6-1-1 on the season for the Preds, currently sporting a 1.71 goals-against average and .936 save percentage.

Thankfully, the spectacular botch job didn’t decide the game’s outcome, but the fact a call this bad could be agreed on between two referees should be deeply disconcerting to league officials and every team in the league....

Professionals with a keen eye for the game of hockey spend hundreds of hours each year watching games, reviewing video, and traveling around the world trying to find the best possible prospect for their respective teams. In many cases all that time in effort is for naught, as players who were standouts at the junior level just don't have what it takes to make the transition to the NHL level.

After a scoreless first period, Nashville took the lead in the second with goals from Craig Smith and Taylor Beck.

    Close your eyes and picture the scene. It’s a cold February Saturday. The cloudless blue sky and bright sun beam down onto a small lake, bespeckled by a half-dozen outdoor hockey rinks. On the rinks, red cheeks huff and frozen vapor puffs as skates and sticks combine to make hockey’s unmistakable percussion. Fans ring the rinks, cheering on goals and shouting encouragement. In the snowbanks, juice boxes await the postgame… Wait, what? You read that right. For the players in this unique tournament, the postgame beer is still a decade or more away. The tournament in question…
  • We’re Writing A Backyard Rink Book!

    Well, I guess I just gave it away now, didn’t I. Forgive me for being a little excited. Ever since I started this blog and began adding how-to articles for the beginning rinkbuilder, I had my eyes set on some sort of book. Up until this past spring, I always figured it would be some sort of homegrown e-book, something that would incorporate all of our articles into one tidy package, which we could sell on the site for a small fee. Like many of my ideas, I sat on it and never really acted on the idea. Then an unsolicited email I received in February reignited those plans and then some.

    Hey everyone! The kids are out of school and summer is here, which means it’s time to grab a beer, sit by the pool, and stare out at your rink site to figure out how you can make it even better next year.

  • How To Stack and Store Your Nicerink Rink Parts

    Joe Proulx
    23 Apr 2014 | 7:40 pm
    We’ve built north of 50 Nicerinks in the New England area in the past few years wearing our Elite Backyard Rinks hats. And while we can throw together a rink in short order, I’ll admit, an efficient offseason storage solution for Nicerink brackets and boards eluded me until this season. Before this year, I’d put the boards in one stack, the brackets in another jumbled pile (or try to fit them into a box), and call it a day. We began offering storage this year, and with several customers taking us up on the offer, it was about time I figured out how best to store the parts in…

Wings tied for first The victory moves the Red Wings into a tie for first place in the NHL standings.  Boston, meanwhile, is at the other end of the spectrum, sporting an 0-7-1 record with little hope for improvement on the horizon.

  • Corsi Close: Does Puck Possession Equal Points?

    Ryan Pike
    30 Oct 2014 | 8:30 am
    Advanced statistics have been lauded for their potential for having predictive value. Much as baseball’s shift towards a reliance on on-base percentage – as teams that are full of players that get on base more tend to score more runs and win more games – hockey may be in the midst towards player valuations being based upon puck possession. After all, teams made up of players that possess the puck and put it towards the other team’s net probably score more than other teams, and would win more games because of that. (Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE) Corsi Close is one metric…

    With all the open spots left by the offseason departures of Brad Richards, Benoit Pouliot, and Brian Boyle, all eyes focused on J.T. Miller to see if he could finally break out and supplant himself as a top-9 forward on the Rangers this season. Things started out optimistic as Miller came into camp in terrific shape and even arrived a few days earlier to get a head start on the new season. After last year’s up-and-down play, which included Head Coach Alain Vigneault remarking that Miller “Needs to show more commitment on the ice and off,” it seemed as though he had matured and was ready…

    Starting the new season off with a record of 2 – 4 – 4, the Colorado Avalanche have had a mixed bag of displays. Putting in great performances in some games, while looking terrible in others. For a team with such high standards and significant talent, this was not the start the Colorado Avalanche were hoping for. Not enough effort to start the first couple of games, and not enough wins on the board have put the Avalanche in a tight spot. Bottom line is this team needs to get it together quickly because the rest of the west won’t wait for the Avs. Thankfully its extremely…

    As you venture through a hockey season, particularly early on, there are shifts and games you want to remember and those you’d rather forget. In the Sharks’ first tournament and few exhibition games of the young season, we had a our share of both. Before the first tourney puck drop, I stressed the importance of using this event and these initial games as learning opportunities. All the coaching staff was looking for was a full and honest effort; similar to what we had refreshingly seen in our other exhibition games leading up to the round robin event. We would work on some…

These two teams are coming into this game in very different moods. The Jets come in off a huge 4-3 win over the New York Islanders, one of the NHLs hottest teams, and got their first 2 game winning streak of the year.

Last season Winnipeg had some success earning 3 of a possible 4 points in their season series, but this Islanders team is a far different one than last years.

Both teams have come in below expectations so far this season, but it is still early and both have a chance to turn it around. These teams were on opposite ends of the Central last season, but early on this year find themselves neck and neck at the bottom. Many believe the Avs are on a bit of a slump to start the season and have the skill to pull themselves out of it.

They played what was, by the numbers, easily the most dominant single performance from a Leaf team in a long time, as they allowed Buffalo just ten shots on net, and had over 80% of the chances at even strength.

The National Hockey League has normally let their players police themselves, and as the game has progressed there has seem to be less and less need for a traditional “Enforcer” due to skill players unwillingness to drop the gloves. With that though, the NHL has stepped in on this occasion, on October 26th 2014 as San Jose Sharks left winger John Scott was suspended two games for his part in a fight with Anaheim Ducks right winger Tim Jackman.
