    No. 1 Star: Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks Kane was his usual dynamic self in Game 4 versus the St. Louis Blues, scoring twice, including the overtime winner in a 4-3 victory, and adding an assist. His game-winner was a remarkable bit of poise, as he backed off the defense before beating Ryan Miller high.  No. 2 Star: Alex Goligoski, Dallas Stars Skating a game-high 32:48 in the Stars' 4-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks that evened the series at two, Goligoski led the Stars with two points, a goal and an assist.

  • Patrick Kane scores in OT as Blackhawks win Game 4 to even series (Video)

    Harrison Mooney
    23 Apr 2014 | 10:17 pm
    There's an old saying when it comes to the playoffs: a series hasn't even begun until a team wins one on the road.  Supposing that's true, through four games, the first-round series between the Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues has yet to even begin. After going down 2-0 in St. Louis, the Blackhawks did what they had to, winning both of their home game. The Game 4 victory came thanks to Patrick Kane, who gave them a 4-3 overtime win with this beautiful overtime winner: You could see this one coming, and not just because we know Kane has a playoff gear because he has a playoff haircut,…
  • Marc-Andre Fleury makes two gaffes, Blue Jackets rally to win Game 4

    Greg Wyshynski
    23 Apr 2014 | 7:35 pm
    On two misplays, all the good will Marc-Andre Fleury had earned in the Pittsburgh Penguins’ division semifinal against the Columbus Blue Jackets was squandered. All the confidence evaporated. All the hope that he wouldn’t be a liability for the third straight postseason thrown into doubt. Yes, he made 42 saves in the game, as the Blue Jackets desperately peppered him in a fight for their playoff lives on Wednesday night. But it’s the two he didn’t make with 24 seconds left in regulation and 2:49 into overtime that cost the Penguins the game, 4-3, and made this a best-of-three series.
  • Matt Cooke suspended seven games for knee-on-knee hit that injured Tyson Barrie

    Harrison Mooney
    23 Apr 2014 | 6:21 pm
    Tyson Barrie won't return to the Colorado Avalanche's first-round series with the Minnesota Wild, after suffering an MCL injury on an ugly, knee-on-knee hit from Matt Cooke.  Unsurprisingly, neither will Cooke, who was suspended seven games by the Department of Player Safety on Wednesday. The DOPS suspension video uses the word knee a lot. Makes sense. "Cooke is leading with his left knee. After Barrie releases the puck, Cooke continues in this posture, further extends his knee, and makes contact wkith Barrie's left knee. This is kneeing." That's from Patrick Burke, the knight who says knee.
  • Ryan Getzlaf to miss Game 4 versus Stars with upper-body injury

    Harrison Mooney
    23 Apr 2014 | 4:50 pm
    The Anaheim Ducks will be without captain and first-line centre Ryan Getzlaf for Wednesday night's pivotal Game 4 versus the Dallas Stars. According to the team, Getzlaf will miss the game with an upper-body injury. He's listed as day-to-day. His absence will likely be felt a great deal more than Teemu Selanne's. It goes without saying that this is a massive loss for Anaheim. Getzlaf has 4 points in the series -- a goal and an assist in both Anaheim wins -- but we knew his value to the team long before the playoffs commenced. Getzlaf finished second in the league in scoring behind Sidney…

    The Worcester Sharks were hoping to play spoiler in Saturday night’s game against the Providence Bruins, but with all the AHL’s Eastern Conference playoff teams determined on Friday all the WorSharks were doing was playing for pride, and they showed lots of it after Troy Grosenick’s 23 saves and Eriah Hayes and Travis Oleksuk lit the lamp to defeat the Baby-Bs 2-0 at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts in front of 6,470 fans. The WorSharks end the season in 11th in the East, 13 points out of the final playoff spot. The Worcester Sharks salute the crowd after their 2-0…

    The Worcester Sharks had a game scheduled for Friday night at the DCU Center against the St. John’s IceCaps but apparently no one told the players as the WorSharks were dominated in every single way possible in a hockey game and lost 6-0 in front of 4,909 fans, whose jeering of Worcester head coach Roy Sommer was audible throughout the arena for most of the second half of the game and well after the final buzzer in the DCU parking garage. The loss extends Sommer’s AHL career leading coaching loss record to 590, which is 78 more than Hershey Bear’s legendary coach Frank…

  • Blanking WorSharks again, Norfolk wins 3-0

    13 Apr 2014 | 7:06 am
    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…

Unwittingly, the Canadiens may have started a new playoff tradition by inviting Quebec diva Ginette Reno to perform the national anthem for a second straight home game. After spurring Rene Bourque to a goal 11 seconds into Game Three, Madame Reno’s magic touch manifested itself once again in Game Four. Just before leaving the ice on Tuesday night, she made a special point of saluting fellow Quebecker Daniel Briere. Two minutes into the first period, the same…

Still, some teams boast a far more powerful killer instinct than others when it comes to sending their opponents packing, and the Canadiens are certainly part of that group. In the 30 times the Habs have led a playoff series by a 3-0 count, they’ve put an end to the series in four games 21 times, in five games on seven occasions, and in six games just two times. 2.

    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.

That’s the riddle the Kings are trying to solve in this first-round series against San Jose, and they’re running out of time. The Kings, who allowed the fewest number of goals in the NHL in the regular season, have given up 17 in this series, and face a 3-0 deficit going into Thursday night’s Game 4 at Staples Center. “Anything is possible,” Kings center Mike Richards said Wednesday. “If you’re still playing hockey, you still have a…

Their alleged speed has been neutralized, if nonexistent. Their goaltending less than average. Their will, sense of urgency, and pushback just not there. True, it’s the playoffs, and crazy things do happen, but right now it would be crazy to think this ends well for the Wings.

    5 Apr 2014 | 4:53 am - Dee Karl - Caps vs Isles: How Bad Do they Want It?With five consequtive losses, the Washington Capitals will not be in a good mood and looking for those elusive points.  My fear is that they will also be looking to welcoming some of the Isles rookies to the NHL  by laying them out on the ice.There may only be less than a handful of games left, but the Isles really can't afford any more injuries.  The Caps may want this game bad -- but they better be good about how they play it.

    What's the Canadian word for "broom"? Whatever, it doesn't really matter. I was kind of rooting for Tampa here, but it will be Canada Man who advances, and Florida Man who goes home. Will the Kings be the next team to leave? They went down 3-0 to the Sharks last night, and that's a sweep that would make me VERY happy.

    The Nashville Predators are continuing their off-season work by signing defensemen Garrett Noonan and Jaynen Rissling to their entry level contracts today (two years for Noonan, three for Rissling). Noonan just finished his collegiate career at Boston University, after being drafted in the 4th round by Nashville in 2011. Rissling was recently acquired from Washington in exchange for the Predators' 7th-round pick in this summer's NHL Draft. Both will presumably skate with the Milwaukee Admirals next season, as Noonan has wrapped up his NCAA eligibility and Rissling just completed his 5th…

  • Q & A with Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens

    Dan Rice
    23 Apr 2014 | 6:21 pm
    Carey Price is the backbone of the Montreal Canadiens and without him, the chances of the Habs being where they are now — heading to the second round of the playoffs — is slim to none. We also can’t understate the importance of the gold medal that he earned in the Sochi Olympics; his confidence is likely at an all-time high, which only enhances the likelihood that the Canadiens are a serious force to be reckoned with for the 2014 Stanley Cup. Carey Price will be a legend in Montreal if he can lead the Habs to their first Cup since 1993. (Anne-Marie Sorvin-US PRESSWIRE) This was…

    [Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports]It didn’t take NHL fans too long to forget Tomas Hertl’s smiling face. Back in October, the San Jose Sharks rookie made a quite a splash by posting 11 points in his first 13 games. One of the best moments of the young season was Hertl’s four-goal performance against the New York Rangers on October 8.

    Your team isn’t special.  They are not the greatest thing since sliced bread.  They are not a group of angels that have never made a dirty play in their careers. Hockey fans are, for my money, the most passionate fans in sports.  We may not have the largest following of the big four sports, but the dedication and knowledge of hockey fans is unmatched by any sport, for the most part.  As a result, we take the sport incredibly seriously and are emotionally involved in the outcomes of games.  These feelings are amplified during the playoffs, where the stakes are even higher.

    Maybe Tim Leiweke is exactly what the Maple Leafs need. (Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports) The only option is to win. Anything less for a Tim Leiweke team is viewed as a disappointment – a group that simply can’t get it done. To him, it’s a work in progress. It’s a job that needs to get done. There enters the Leiweke formula – impatience, plus passion and determination, equals success. In turn, fans believe in their team and teams begin to believe that they can win in whatever situation they might face. That’s something the current Toronto teams have had trouble with…

  • What’s A Hockey Dad To Do When The Season Ends

    15 Mar 2014 | 8:40 am
    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…
  • And Just Like That…..Another Hockey Season Ends

    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…

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…
  • Hockey Playoff Losses Can Hurt

    17 Feb 2014 | 4:34 pm
    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.

    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.
