  • Are Dark Days in Edmonton Here to Stay?

    Pucks On The Fly

    17 Oct 2014 | 9:14 pm
    The Edmonton Oilers lost to the Vancouver Canucks 2-0 Friday night and are off to the worst start (0-4-1) since the 2002-03 season when they opened the first five games of the season with a 1-3-1 record. Edmonton is currently ranked T-15th in the NHL with 11 goals scored but have given up 24 goals which is the most goals allowed in the league thus far this season. The draft is used to improve a team, but in Edmonton’s case they have remained at the bottom of the league despite three first overall draft picks three years in a row (2010, 2011, 2012) that brought in Taylor Hall, Ryan…

    Forgetting all about the conclusion of Saturday night's game vs. the Blackhawks, the Predators face the Coyotes Tuesday night in Bridgestone Arena. Some line changes and the return of Martin Erat highlight tonight's matchup. The Arizona Coyotes More from our team sites Phoenix Coyotes blog Five For Howling Arizona will come into Nashville sitting in 11th place in the Western Conference with 4 pts and a 2-2-0 record. Don't be fooled. Yes, they are 2nd to last in GA/GP (Goals Allowed per Game), but that's mostly due to a 6-1 drubbing vs. the Blues on Saturday (and you thought our result was…

  • How terrible is this goalie interference call on Nick Bjugstad? (Video)

    Greg Wyshynski
    21 Oct 2014 | 9:38 pm
    The Florida Panthers defeated the Colorado Avalanche in overtime on Tuesday night, 4-3, on a Brad Boyes goal. This result proves that the Hockey Gods have a sense of goodness and fairness, because the Panthers were nearly jobbed by an atrocious goalie interference penalty late in the third period. Bjugstad made a brilliant move in the Avalanche zone, skating out from behind the net, turning and accelerating through the Colorado defense towards goalie Reto Berra. The goalie moved to the top of his crease and attempted a poke check. Bjugstad collided with his pad and flew through the air. The…
  • Pavel Datsyuk work of art ruined by NHL goalie interference rules (Video)

    21 Oct 2014 | 7:55 pm
    Pavel Datsyuk returned to the Detroit Red Wings lineup on Tuesday night and did what Pavel Datsyuk does, which is score a ridiculous goal: Blazing speed into the Montreal Canadiens zone, a dangle to the middle, a spinning backhand perfectly placed past Carey Price.  Only it didn’t count. Nor should it have counted, as per the NHL’s goalie interference rules and the real-time enforcement of them, without benefit of review. Justin Abdelkader of the Red Wings parked himself next to Price, his skate near the crease. Price moved into his hip, attempting to defend the shot. And the goal was…
  • Nathan Horton’s career could be over due to back injury

    Greg Wyshynski
    21 Oct 2014 | 5:08 pm
    Calling Nathan Horton’s back ailment an “injury” seems a bit flimsy in light of Aaron Portzline’s report on Monday that the Columbus Blue Jackets forward’s career might be over.  Horton has a “degeneration of the entire lumbar region of his spine or lower back” according to the Columbus Dispatch, and there’s growing concern that his career “might be finished.” He signed a 7-year, $37.1-million free-agent contract with the Blue Jackets in 2013. That was after recovering from a concussion he suffered in Boston, and shoulder surgery that delayed the start of his season with…
  • LA Kings support NHL suspension of Slava Voynov but unclear on fallout

    21 Oct 2014 | 2:07 pm
    Since the NHL broke the news that it had suspended Kings defenseman Slava Voynov indefinitely after an arrest on suspicion of domestic violence (Voynov has reportedly yet to be charged), both the league and the Kings have shown a united front in support of the action.  While deputy commissioner Bill Daly had been active in defending the NHL's actions in this case, the Kings have been mainly silent with the exception of a statement by the team.  That ended Tuesday with general manager Dean Lombardi and coach Darryl Sutter chatting with reporters at the team's practice facility in El Segundo,…

Breakfast of champions? “Sure,” he gives a wry smile following Arizona’s morning skate Whatever gets the Swedish minute-crunching blueliner going (he seemingly plays forever, averaging almost half-a-game of ice-time) that night works. “He plays a lot of minutes in all situations,” Arizona coach Dave Tippett said. “He plays like an elite defenseman in the league.

    On Tuesday night in Winnipeg, the Canes failed for the 5th time during the 2014-15 season to find a win.

    21 Oct 2014 | 9:05 pm
    MONTREAL – When Alex Galchenyuk is on his game, the chances of shutting him down are slim to none. The Red Wings learned that lesson the hard way on Tuesday night. With the Canadiens down 1-0 late in the third period, the 20-year-old forward won a critical one-on-one battle with Detroit defenseman Kyle Quincey down low, before beating goaltender Jimmy Howard on a wrap-around to send the game to overtime. That set the stage for David Desharnais’ eventual game-winner 56 seconds into the extra frame, lifting Michel Therrien’s troops to a 2-1 win at the Bell Centre. In the aftermath of the…

Riding a two-game win streak over the Boston Bruins and Colorado Avalanche, the Canadiens are enjoying an explosive start to the season on offense, currently tied for second in the NHL for most goals scored with 20. On defense however, the Habs’ 20 goals allowed are ranked 25th in the league, having conceded the first goal in five of six games played…

    20 Oct 2014 | 11:43 am
    MONTREAL – Winning draws is an art form few players have mastered, but Manny Malhotra is a part of that elite group. The 34-year-old centerman, who signed a one-year deal with the Canadiens back on July 1st, has been nothing short of dominant in the faceoff circle since the start of the 2014-15 campaign, having bested his opponents 66.3 percent of the time through six games – tops amongst all regular Canadiens centermen to date. Last Saturday night, the 16-year NHL veteran won a season-high 72.2 percent of his draws in the Canadiens’ 3-2 win over the Avalanche. That being said, it…

I present these Top Twelve highlights:1.      Fitness first—it’s Zdeno Chara and. Kevin Millar with 31 pull-ups each; the shuttle run and heaving diaphragms gasping for air.

    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…

    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.

    James Gralian
    21 Oct 2014 | 6:14 am
    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. Toledo is home to one of the most famous minor league…

I’ve seen all the teams on the west coast of the United States.  I took a road trip to every team in the 14-team UHL.  AHL, ECHL, SPHL, OHL, yadda yadda yadda.  Compared to some, it’s not much, but for a guy on a limited budget, it’s not bad.  One league I had never witnessed was the Federal Hockey League. Until now. The FHL started about five years ago in the upper northeast of the…

    Every time I see a hockey game in a new venue, I commemorate it by purchasing a puck.  I’ve gotten some cool ones and a few rather lame.  These are the ones I got this time. The Keystone Ice Miners one is an “Inaugural Season” puck.  Meg said it would be worth something some day.  I said, yeah, like my Roanoke Valley Vipers puck.  Which made us laugh, because who? The Nailers one is a puck from past season.  That was all they had for sale.  They are getting new ones in on Wednesday.  Considering how much I liked the Nailers jerseys, I would have preferred one in…

    13 Oct 2014 | 4:08 pm
    The way I travel to hockey games is somewhat flawed.  Too often, I pull in to town only an hour or two before a game, which doesn’t give much time to get the real feel of a city.  I roam around, looking at what I can look at, maybe grab a meal rather than being subjected to arena food, then head to the game before warm-ups. Wheeling, WV was the same way, which is too bad.  There has to be more to Wheeling than the downtown area, where the WesBanco Arena resides, would lead you to believe. The Wheeling Nailers have the distinction of being the longest-serving team in the ECHL, now…

But optimism is fading that Horton will be able to play this season, and there’s growing concern that the 29-year-old’s career might be finished. Horton, who signed a seven-year, $37.1 million free-agent contract with the Blue Jackets in the summer of 2013, has been diagnosed with “degeneration” of the entire lumbar region of his spine, or the lower back, sources told The Dispatch. Surgery has not been scheduled or ruled out, but it is…

  • Alex Galchenyuk Should Have Been Given A Penalty, Not A Goal

    21 Oct 2014 | 12:37 pm
    from Kerry Fraser of TSN, Alex Galchenyuk had only touched the ice with one skate after exiting the penalty box and therefore was not deemed legally on the ice when he stole the puck off the stick of Nathan MacKinnon.  By the letter of the law Alex Galchenyuk should have received an additional minor penalty for interference (56.2) and no goal would have resulted in what turned out to be a 3-2 Montreal victory in regulation time. Two rules reference this play in determining when a player is deemed to be legally on the ice from either the players' bench or penalty box. First, 56.2…

    If you missed the 2014-15 Home Opener you missed one of the strongest starts to the season in recent history. The Amerks steamrolled the Flames with a 6-1 victory in a game that had a little bit of everything. The game started evenly matched and the first period ended scoreless. Goals from Schaller (RCH) and Agostino (ADK) had the 2nd period heading for a tie but the Amerks answered the Flames’ increased aggression with goals. Grigorenko and Ruhwedel stuffed in a pair giving the Amerks a 3-1 lead heading into the 3rd. Just 3 minutes into the third Ellis used his NHL experience to bury…

I discovered the Amerks after moving to Rochester for college and I only became a season ticket holder in 2011. My interest in the team coincided with the discovery of accounting discrepancies involving then team owner Steve Donner. Countless changes resulted. An awkward dual affiliation with the Florida Panthers was signed along side the existing Buffalo Sabres affiliation. This dual affiliation coupled with continued financial…

    The cold hard fact is that in hockey, success is achieved only by playoff series victories.

The bottom line is that for the 10th season in a row the Amerks did not win a playoff series. Why? There are several reasons to discuss: – Injuries to veterans Bagnall, Tardif and Zigomanis hurt…

Back in October I never would have pegged the Amerks as a playoff contender. They had an atrocious start to the season. Coupled with the management unrest in Buffalo it seemed like the 2013-2014 season was a destined for bust. Fast forward a couple of months and it seemed like the Amerks were a freight train with one scheduled stop. The playoffs. Unfortunately an inconceivable turn of events in…

    It is widely believed that the balance of power in the NHL these days is heavily weighted in the Western Conference. With the last three Stanley Cups going to the Los Angeles Kings, Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings respectively, it is an easy assessment to make. And that doesn't even take into account the other contenders like the Anaheim Ducks, San Jose Sharks and St. Louis Blues. Yet, when it comes to the game's most important position - goaltending - the Eastern Conference seems to have a wide edge when it comes to the last line of defense. That said, the goaltending in the west is…

  • Nashville Predators 4, Arizona Coyotes 3: A Flair for the Dramatic

    Jonathan Garcia
    21 Oct 2014 | 8:11 pm
    Preds take the first game of their homestand by way of the shootout. Tonight was the Battle of Media Narratives. Marty Erat vs. Filip Forsberg. Mike Ribeiro vs. his old team. Something something Devan Dubnyk. Only the faithful of either team really cared about what was actually happening on the ice, and like most Predators vs. Coyotes games, it did not disappoint. It looked dire for a minute, after Erat stuck it to Nashville in the third period and put Arizona up by a goal. Of course, he knows not of the power of James Neal, who took a slick pass from Ribeiro to tie it immediately after.

    Forgetting all about the conclusion of Saturday night's game vs. the Blackhawks, the Predators face the Coyotes Tuesday night in Bridgestone Arena. Some line changes and the return of Martin Erat highlight tonight's matchup. The Arizona Coyotes More from our team sites Phoenix Coyotes blog Five For Howling Arizona will come into Nashville sitting in 11th place in the Western Conference with 4 pts and a 2-2-0 record. Don't be fooled. Yes, they are 2nd to last in GA/GP (Goals Allowed per Game), but that's mostly due to a 6-1 drubbing vs. the Blues on Saturday (and you thought our result was…

    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.

    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.

    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…

    Kenneth Laws
    21 Oct 2014 | 8:52 pm
    This post is part of our series – Hockey 101 Tripping is a penalty that can be committed in a variety of ways. All you really need is contact at the player’s feet that causes the player to lose his balance. While this is the textbook pose of a player who has just been tripped, Bobby Orr was not a victim of tripping on this play Examining How Tripping Happens It doesn’t matter how a player’s feet disappear from under him. Whether it be by stick, leg, or body, if an opponent trips over something on your person, you’re going to the box. This is not to be confused…

    Out of the gate, the Buffalo Sabres have left much more to be desired during this young NHL season. Six games into the 2014-2015 NHL season, the Sabres have earned two out of a possible twelve points with a 1-5-0 record. At the First Niagara Center, the Sabres have scored just two goals in four games and they’ve failed to log a win. Last season, the club averaged an abysmal 1.83 goals per game and so far this season the Sabres’ average has been worse. Buffalo sits at 1.17 goals per game just ahead of the Florida Panthers who currently own the worst average goals per game in the…

What they didn’t expect to see was any extra offence, but that changed tonight when Polak recorded his first goal (and point) in a Leafs uniform, putting everyone’s favourite team ahead 3-2 against the New York Islanders midway through the second period. The goal helped Toronto move past a sloppy start to the game and was quickly followed by…

    1 Oct 2014 | 5:52 pm
    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…

    9 Sep 2014 | 6:02 pm
    We’re just a few practices into a new season of girls midget hockey and my initial trepidation at having to work with a group of relatively unknown players has surprisingly turned to cautious optimism. My concern at having a young team with half of the players in their rookie midget year has been replaced by enthusiasm driven by their enthusiasm. Last year I was lucky to have two girls ready to go on the ice when the Zamboni was done making its rounds, while so far the entire squad has been standing by expectantly as the big doors close signalling their permission to begin their skate.

    Sometimes all it takes is the right bounce. The Leafs were off to a drowsy start and fell behind 1-0 before the first line got a fortuitous bounce off the boards that fell perfectly to Kessel, who dropped to JvR for his 3rd of the season. The Leafs would fall behind again after a series of penalties — two by Lupul, one costly after a bad bounce landed on the wrong stick for Tavares’ 2-1 The post Game Review: Game #7, Toronto Maple Leafs 5 vs. New York Islanders 2 appeared first on Maple Leafs Hotstove.

Particularly affected, the Colorado Avalanche in their goal-tending department. After recently placing their starting goalie, Semyon Varlamov, on the injured reserved list, the Avalanche were looking to rely on back up goalie Reto Berra. Unfortunately for the Avs, Berra had to be removed from Thursday night’s game after being crashed into by Ottawa Senator, Kyle Turris.  This left the Avalanche with only one goal tender, rookie Calvin Pickard.
