  • Stanley Cup Playoffs Three Stars: OT drama in Tampa; Sutter power Penguins

    Greg Wyshynski
    16 Apr 2014 | 10:51 pm
    No. 1 Star: Dale Weise, Montreal Canadiens The Habs forward was in the right place at the right time – 18:08 of OT – when Daniel Briere hit him with a pass from behind the net. Weise snapped a shot past a frozen Anders Lindback for the 5-4 victory in Game 1 of Montreal’s series vs. the Tampa Bay Lightning. No. 2 Star: Brandon Sutter, Pittsburgh Penguins Sutter’s wrist shot at 8:18 of the third period beat Sergei Bobrovsky and gave the Pittsburgh Penguins their only lead of the night – and the game-winning goal in their 4-3 victory. Sutter also won 53 percent of his faceoffs. No. 3…

    With 16.3 seconds remaining in Game 1 of their divisional semifinal series on Wednesday night, Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin took a slap shot with a bouncing puck at the Anaheim Ducks goal. Center Ryan Getzlaf watched the shot sail into the air … and right into his mouth, dropping the captain to the ice in a heap. Getzlaf donated a bit of blood on the ice before the Ducks’ trainer led him to the back. The Ducks hung on to win, 4-3, despite a late rally by Dallas. Which should put a smile on Getzlaf’s face, assuming this is still physically possible. Coach Bruce Boudreau said after…
  • Daniel Briere, playoff beast, sets up Canadiens’ OT winner vs. Lightning (Video)

    Greg Wyshynski
    16 Apr 2014 | 8:01 pm
    Daniel Briere is one of only 35 players in NHL history to average more than a point per playoff game, entering the Montreal Canadiens’ Game 1 battle with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night with 109 points in 108 playoff games. Make that 110 points in 109 games. Briere made the key play in overtime, leading to Dale Weise’s game-winner at 18:08 and the 5-4 victory. The play was started by Michael Bournival, who forced a pair of turnovers by Lightning defenseman Radko Gudas and got the puck deep. Briere fired a shot that was blocked, the puck traveling back to the point where Josh…

    Despite not being traditional rivals, the Montreal Canadiens and Tampa Bay Lightning located their animosity rather quickly in Game 1 of their Stanley Cup Playoffs divisional semifinal on Wednesday. That including a scrum during the game in which Steven Stamkos (of all people) went after Andrei Markov after a late hit on Ondrej Palat. As true hockey fans know, there is but one reaction to seeing this kind of passion and postseason drama: Lemme get a selfie!

Metallica’s “For Whom The Bell Tolls.” There are a few of our favorite things, and Hockey Night In Canada’s mad genius Tim Thompson put it all together in an incredible montage for the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs’ opening night: Really, any opening that can feature James Hetfield, Pat Burns and the California Golden Seals gets all the love and affection we can shower on 3 and a half minutes of hockey highlights. Kudos for not using "Enter Sandman," as well.

    The Worcester Sharks followed up Friday’s total team effort win against the Adirondack Phantoms with one on the complete opposite end of the spectrum as they looked like 18 guys that had never been on the ice together before in dropping a 3-0 contest to the Norfolk Admirals Saturday night at the DCU Center in front of a crowd of 4,500 fans for the WorSharks second consecutive shutout loss to the Admirals. As has been the case in many of his losses this season, Worcester rookie netminder Troy Grosenick played well enough to win but his teammates failed him on the other end of the ice.

    The Worcester Sharks may have been eliminated from playoff contention with Wednesday night’s loss to Hartford, but they put together one of their best games of the season Friday night at the DCU Center against the Adirondack Phantoms and behind multiple point nights by Adam Comrie, Freddie Hamilton, and Travis Oleksuk defeated the Phantoms 4-1 to hand Adirondack goaltender Cal Heeter his AHL leading 25th loss on the season. Worcester Sharks defenseman Adam Comrie (#44) guards Adirondack winger Derek Whitmore during the WorSharks 4-1 victory Friday night. Comrie had a highlight game…
  • WorSharks fall out of playoff chase, but Mo steals the show

    10 Apr 2014 | 7:07 am
    Both the Worcester Sharks and Wednesday night’s opponent the Hartford Wolf Pack had one path to the AHL’s Calder Cup playoffs–to win out and have the Albany Devils lose all their remaining games in regulation. Unfortunately for the WorSharks it was the Wolf Pack that came out of the game with a 2-1 victory ending Worcester’s longshot playoff hopes. Adam Schmidt had the lone WorSharks tally with his first professional goal, but it was head coach Roy Sommer’s son Marley who stole the show with a rousing rendition of the national anthem. Former Holy Cross standout…
  • WorSharks lose 3-2 in OT, see playoff chances hit virtually nil

    6 Apr 2014 | 5:47 am
    The Worcester Sharks went into Saturday night’s contest against the Hershey Bears at the DCU Center in “must win in regulation” mode to keep their incredibly slim playoff hopes alive, and after squandering an early lead were able to get into overtime on Dan DaSilva’s WorSharks career goal leading tally late in the third period but a poor line change in the extra session lead to a turnover and a Bears goal to give Worcester a 3-2 loss and virtually kill them in the playoff hunt. Worcester Sharks forward Dan DaSilva became the franchise's all-time goal scoring leader…

    TAMPA – The Canadiens stole home ice advantage back from the Lightning in dramatic fashion on Wednesday night. Entering Game 1 as the “underdog” road team after finishing one point back of the Bolts with 100 points on the season, the Habs leaned heavily on their advantage in the experience department in their first win of the series. From responding to Tampa’s opening goal 19 seconds after it had happened on Tomas Plekanec’s first of the postseason to tying it up again off a Brian Gionta shorthanded marker in the second period, the Canadiens overcame plenty of adversity to win their…

On Wednesday night, the second and third-placed teams of the Atlantic Division will kick off their quest for the Stanley Cup in Tampa, Florida. Both teams have compiled fine regular season records. The Habs hit the 100 point plateau for the first time since 2007-08, finishing with exactly 100.

  • Five Keys to the Game: Habs-Lightning #1

    15 Apr 2014 | 4:21 pm
    The Centennial Club : To be the best, you need to beat the best. If you have any hope of hoisting the Stanley Cup come June, the chances that you’ll have to battle teams that registered solid regular season records – that is, squads that have amassed 100 points or more in the standings – are quite good. Tampa Bay certainly fits that mold. That being said, the playoff series against the Lightning marks the 30th time the Canadiens will have battled an opponent of that calibre, a league record. It’s also worth noting, however, that the Habs hold the distinction of being the team that has…

The former Rocket Richard Trophy winner had an NHL-best 0.68 goal per game this season, only missing out on the goal-scoring title for the third time due to losing half the season to a severe leg injury.

    A few thoughts from around the league. - There’s a lot of hand wringing over the Vancouver Canucks and John Tortorella. The question is whether or not he is the right coach for the Canucks considering their current slide and doubtfulness of making the playoffs. Frankly, Tortorella is one of many problems the team has, which started after game seven of the Stanley Cup Final in 2011. Note that I did not say game six. The slide of the Canucks started with the mishandling of the Luongo situation, and only got worse as time went on. I’m not sure Tortorella is the right coach for most…

    The business of minor league sports is always a difficult one.  It’s completely gate-driven, and if the butts in the seats aren’t there, you won’t make money.  A good arena lease is pretty instrumental to the success of a team, but if you don’t have the fans at the arena, you won’t be able to pay for the arena, no matter how sweet the lease is. Look at the Wikipedia pages of just about any minor league and you will see the bodies of old franchises strewn everywhere.  What you don’t often see is a team fold in the middle of the season.

    As the Nashville Predators begin a search for their next head coach, there are some major tasks which any prospective bench boss needs to be prepared to take on. See how high Craig Smith's ceiling is After an awful 2013 season which had many questioning his NHL future, Craig Smith jumped to the forefront this season, leading the team with 24 goals and providing the most consistent offensive presence up front. His speed is a game-changer, capable of putting opposing defensemen back on their heels, and besides persistently driving pucks to the net Smith also demonstrated increased awareness of…

The Eastern Conference has been wide open this season, with as many as 11 teams in the hunt for a playoff berth up until the last five or six games of the regular season.  After nearly upsetting the Bruins in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals last year, the Toronto Maple Leafs failed to qualify for the postseason, representing the biggest disappointment in the East.  Ottawa, a team on rise after acquiring Bobby Ryan in the summer, also failed to extend their season, leaving Canada with just one team in the postseason.  Due to the history…

I’m sure any respectable addict, regardless the drug, will tell you the same. And yes, my kids’ hockey has been my drug of choice.

    Every hockey season inevitably has to come to an end; far too early for most hockey dads including yours truly. However, this is an important time for all to rest, relax, reflect and maybe even pursue other interests or attend to certain neglected commitments. Young hockey players, as I’ve firmly stated previously, should be encouraged to try alternative sports or hobbies, in order to become better rounded athletes and people. That being said, dads, particularly those who pull double-duty as their kids’ coaches, can and no doubt do, keep one eye on the next campaign. With this in…

    The Sharks put up a heroic effort and battled hard down the stretch with a skeleton crew in an attempt to advance to our Provincial Championships. After the last game of our first round league playoff series we were reduced to 12 skaters, 1 goalie and no coach as I was resigned to catch the first game of our double round-robin competition from up in the stands. The first two games would pit us against the number one team in our regular league, though they apparently had some challenges of their own icing only 13 skaters and likewise a lone goalie. Game one was a tight affair which saw the two…

    As a diehard patriot the Canadian men’s and women’s teams’ Gold medal victories at the Sochi Olympics this past week were both fantastic events  proving we remain the preeminent hockey nation. The Devil, the Boy, Momma and I were all up before the crack of dawn on Sunday morning to join others at a raucous early morning viewing/cheering party, complete with Canadian beer and bacon. The game itself was a little anti-climatic as we all had a sense of the outcome after having seen our side systematically dispense of what was supposed to be a powerhouse American squad in a 1-0…

    The Devil and her Sharks teammates had a pretty good run in our first round playoff run though it was stopped short and abruptly much to our dismay. We went in as underdogs being the 7th seed facing the 2nd, but were pretty confident in having played our opponents tough during the regular season with a loss, a tie and a win…in that order. The second place finisher would naturally get home ice advantage, so we started last weekend with a game in “enemy” territory. In games past against this team we’d had some challenges with fair and equitable refereeing and I went into…

    Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports As the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks get set to engage in each team’s final game of the 2013-14 season, the Flames would be best served by having the Canucks outshoot them. A stat that is regularly found with young teams is their penchant to get outshot by the more veteran teams of the league. Case in point is this season’s rebuilding Flames team. Calgary has won only 32.4 percent of the games where they outshoot their opponent, which has happened in 34 of 81 games to date. On the flip side, the Flames have won 54.8 percent of the games…

Speaking with Team 1040 radio in Vancouver this morning, Gillis made some statements that don’t exactly sound like an endorsement of Tortorella. If anything, he sounds like he may be saying the club made a mistake in hiring the fiery coach in the first place. “I want us to play up-beat, puck possession, move-the-puck quickly, force teams into mistakes, high-transition game.

Unfortunately for coach John Tortorella and his team, the memories might remain more bitter than sweet.  From fines to suspensions, locker room invasions to opening face-off brawls, and blowout losses to the surprising trade of longtime goaltender Roberto Luongo, the fate of Vancouver’s season has been “over” so many times critics might need a new word for over.

    Getty Images The Vancouver Canucks were once the most feared team in the West. They won the Presidents’ Trophy in back-to-back years, and the only real controversy was whether it should be Roberto Luongo or Cory Schneider starting in goal. Now, Luongo is gone, Schneider is gone, Ryan Kesler is uninterested and the Canucks are on the brink of missing the playoffs for the first time since 2008. In a game on Monday night which should have been played with a playoff mentality considering there are only 12 games left in their season, the Canucks came out slow, sluggish and lackadaisical.

    Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports When a team struggles in the NHL, the player who usually catches the most heat from fans and media alike is the goalie. Just ask Toronto Maple Leafs backup James Reimer. After last year’s postseason collapse against the Boston Bruins, in which a 4-1 lead was erased with ten minutes left in Game 7, Reimer was given his fair share of criticism. During the offseason, the Leafs acquired Jonathan Bernier from the Los Angeles Kings, and almost immediately labeled him as the team’s starting goalie over Reimer. Things got dicey when Bernier was injured last month…

Currently sitting a point behind the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Maple Leafs have only four games remaining on their season while Columbus still has six games to play.
