  • Islanders’ Matt Martin suspended one game for kneeing Trevor Daley

    Greg Wyshynski
    4 Mar 2015 | 5:46 pm
    According to the NHL, the kneeing penalty that got Matt Martin kicked out of the New York Islanders’ game and put Dallas Stars defenseman Trevor Daley out on Tuesday was a bumbling, awkward collision by a player unfortunately trying to complete his check.  And it’ll cost Martin another game. From the NHL: New York Islanders forward Matt Martin has been suspended for one game, without pay, for kneeing Dallas Stars defenseman Trevor Daley during NHL Game No. 948 in Dallas on Tuesday, March 3, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today. The incident occurred…
  • David Clarkson out for season because he’s a Blue Jacket, hence injured

    Math is not our strong suit, but the amount of man-games lost for the Columbus Blue Jackets this season has to be in the thousands, right?  Or so it would seem with this snake-bitten team, which has now seen this season from hell take an new and exciting absurd turn: David Clarkson, the player they acquired in exchange for an injured player, is now himself injured. (Although we bet his contract is insured.) From the Jackets: Columbus Blue Jackets right wing David Clarkson will be sidelined four to six weeks due to a torn oblique muscle suffered in Tuesday night’s game against the…

    Marc Crawford is no stranger to going off on an opposing coach while on his team’s bench. Remember the 1997 Western Conference Final against the Red Wings? Nearly 20 years later, Crawford still has that edge and the ZSC Lions head coach took out some frustrations on EHC Biel head coach Kevin Schläpfer during a Swiss League playoff game on Saturday. With Biel holding a 5-0 lead in the third period, things started to bubble over, and a dust-up ensued between Henrik Tallinder and Spylo Ahren. Via Bardown, when Schlapfer said something to Tallinder, Crawford had enough.   WARNING: VERY NSFW…

    The last time I spoke with Hilary Knight, she was super pissed off. It was in the media mix zone in Sochi, a year ago. The U.S. women’s team had lost the gold medal in overtime to their arch rivals from Canada. Knight had been whistled for a controversial penalty on Canadian forward Halyey Wickenheiser that led to Marie-Phillip Poulin’s game-winning power play goal. I still remember her voice as a mixture of bitterness, disappointment and exhaustion. “I didn’t touch her. She fell. It was a bogus call. But it doesn’t rely on one call. We had plenty of opportunity,” she said. She…

The Montreal Canadiens won their fourth straight game Saturday and are building on their lead atop the Atlantic Division. One could make a strong case their goaltender is the biggest reason why. Carey Price has been sensational all season long and was named the NHL's Second Star for the month of February after going 9-1-1 with a 1.34 goals-against average and .949 save percentage in 11 games. He closed out the month by shutting out the Toronto Maple Leafs in a…

This was a return to the scene of the crime.  The Riverkings faced off against the Pensacola Ice Flyers, who the Riverkings beat 6-2 last week in Mississippi, and 3-1 in Pensacola the night before this game.  The Ice Flyers were 0-6-1 in their last seven coming into the game, and…

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…

Wilson was the long-time trainer for the Detroit Red Wings, Wilson, who served as a Red Wings trainer from 1950 to 1982, exchanged his stitching thread for a goaltender's stick on the rare occasions when a goalie was hurt and could not stay in a game. In the 1950's, N.H.L. teams carried only one goaltender. An emergency backup -- often an amateur goalie -- was kept on hand to complete games when either team's goalie was sidelined.

    4 Mar 2015 | 2:00 am
    Parity's reign over college hockey hasn't evaded Atlantic Hockey. Last weekend included the final two gamedays of the regular season, and RIT and Mercyhurst began the weekend separated by just two points in the race for fourth place in the league's standings. While the top five seeds in the Atlantic Hockey tournament receive byes, only the top four get home-ice advantage in the league's quarterfinals ...

    North Dakota senior Mark MacMillan will undergo surgery Wednesday on a "lower body injury," the school announced. And while he is not officially out for the rest of the season, the school said he's sidelined "indefinitely." North Dakota is currently No. 1 in the Pairwise and takes on Miami this weekend in the final two games of the regular season with first place in the NCHC on the line. MacMillan ...

    3 Mar 2015 | 2:00 am
    At this time last year, BU had just wrapped up a 10th-place finish in Hockey East and had a single game remaining in its season before being bounced from the conference tournament. On Saturday, BU wrapped up a regular-season title, and a bye, and is basically a lock to make the NCAA tournament as well. A lot of this can be attributed to the contributions of a single player. As you might have heard ...
  • Oddo Man In

    2 Mar 2015 | 2:00 am
    For a hockey game to take place, there are many behind-the-scenes actions needed, from travel logistics to preparing an arena. Most athletes have their own pieces of gameday preparation, and don’t see what else happens. But senior Nick Oddo, who participated in even management for the Bucks Go Pro internship, had a chance to see the other side. “There’s so many people doing so many things ...

    Minnesota State has had an edge on Michigan Tech in the WCHA standings all season. The Mavericks swept MTU earlier this season in a two-game series in Houghton. This weekend was Michigan Tech's chance to make recover those points lost. Friday's 1-1 tie in Mankato was a good step, but the Huskies couldn't complete the job. Minnesota State defeated Michigan Tech, 4-2, Saturday night and now has a three-point ...

    A win is a win -- And the Isles need one now.The Isles are in a good spot to beat the Flyers who may be well rested, but their winning streak has to end some time.  Let it be tonight.  Starting a three game road trip with two points will also do wonders for the Isles confidence, which can become eroded with mounting loses and teams closing in on them quickly.Just win!
  • Hanging Chad - Isles Drop 2

    2 Feb 2015 | 4:30 am
    I hate that hockey gets drowned out by 72 hours of NFL reporting and hoopla.  Seriously though, isn't the Super Bowl really just about two things?  What are we eating?  Did we win any money?  That's it.  I can close to winning $300 bucks, but the stupid Patriots blew that for me at the end.  Oh well.Can everyone now please concentrate on the balance of the NHL season?  Thanks.So the Isles dropped two games in a row and one at the barn.  Sad, but it shouldn't push up to the ledge.  So... back-up.

  • And on the Seventh Day... Predators Need Rest

    Jeremy Sargent
    4 Mar 2015 | 9:45 am
    Might a bit of lethargy be creeping in due to the hectic schedule and games every other day? With complete transparency, I went into this article with the full intention of showing how "rest" is simply a scapegoat excuse for the Predators poor play as of late. But upon further inspection, the top six teams in the NHL have all had about the same number of games in February (aside from the horrendous end of the month of February leading into the two losses in March for the Preds) and the Nashville Predators and New York Rangers both came out with ten wins. The other top-six include the Anaheim…

    Nick Rockwell
    4 Mar 2015 | 4:28 am
    Yesterday a few of the Maple Leafs bucked and struck back at the often ridiculous Toronto media. I think it's no coincidence these actions were taken by three players who had potential to move at the deadline but didn't and definitely won't be around next season. By all accounts over the last five years, to play and work in hockey in Toronto seems tumultuous at best. With most of the worn punching bags moving to other gyms, it should be interesting times ahead for the new blood of Toronto.

  • Nashville Predators 1, New Jersey Devils 3: Connect Four

    Inside: Your chance to relive this epic pile of frustration and suck. The game started similar to many as of late; the Preds allowed a goal quickly, and struggled finding their game throughout the first period. Being outshot 9-3 by the Devils? That's not a recipe to inspire confidence. The attempted shots were close to even, but more of the Preds attempts were going wide of the net in the first than on net. This is all while Filip Forsberg started with Calle Jarnkrok and Mike Santorelli. Mike Ribeiro's line was wretched in the first, even with being on the ice supported by the Weber/Josi…
  • The Nashville Predators Aren't Special, And That's A Good Thing

    Braden Thompson
    3 Mar 2015 | 11:00 am
    With such an unpredictable season on their hands, it appears the Nashville Predators could be on the verge of something very special, or so it seems. With all the comebacks, dominant play, and incredible goaltending (the past three games notwithstanding), it's easy to call this team special. I certainly can't blame anyone who feels this is a special team. So what's so wrong about being special? Because "special" isn't lasting. "Special" doesn't extend into the postseason. "Special" is a talking point to convey how much fun it is to watch this team play and seemingly be in every game even when…

    The Coolest Hockey Bedroom EVER is a series of posts chronicling the transformation from a boring bedroom to a hockey heaven for my son.

    You’ve probably never met Colin Falla. Colin’s a five-year-old boy who lives just west of Boston, and like most kids his age, he likes swimming, riding his bike, playing sports, and building Legos. If you happened to run into him, you’d see him playing with his little sister in the snow or bombing down his local rail trail with his parents. What you wouldn’t see, however, is that Colin was born with Cystic Fibrosis. You also wouldn’t know that Colin is the grandson of the late Jack Falla.

If you’re fortunate enough to live on a lake or near a pond, or have invested in the proper backyard ice rink supplies to make your own skating surface, there’s no denying how enjoyable lacing up the skates outdoors can be.

    When I say “pond hockey scenery”, no doubt you think about wide open skies, naked trees swaying in the breeze, and beer-can-speckled snowbanks around frozen lakes and ponds. And for most major pond hockey events, including the three run by Scott Crowder, you’d be right. Whether they’re run on Meredith Bay, Lake Champlain, or Foys Lake in Montana, each features hockey action on a postcard-quality backdrop of winter bliss. But with this morning’s announcement, you can add a slightly different backdrop to the stable of PHC events: taxi cabs, skyscrapers, and the…

    4 Mar 2015 | 7:03 pm
    Every hockey player has his or her unique story, the path they took to get to where they are, no matter how far or successful they are and Carter Ashton of the Syracuse Crunch is no different. The son of former NHLer Brent Ashton (more on him later), the younger Ashton is still finding his way in the pro game, but now is back with the team that drafted him — a team with a very excellent track record of developing young players since Steve Yzerman took over the reigns of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

  • Montreal Canadiens: Presidents’ Trophy Contenders?

    It’s come to this, with the Montreal Canadiens having the good fortune of a second-straight shot to vault to the top of the NHL standings. In spite of the Habs’ decisive loss against the San Jose Sharks on Monday, the league-leading Nashville Predators were unable to cushion their two-point lead against the lowly New Jersey Devils Wednesday and now sit atop the leaderboard alongside Montreal’s opposition Wednesday night: the Anaheim Ducks (10 p.m. Eastern). The Habs have 87 points, but two games in hand on both, who have 89. Montreal and Nashville have the same 35 regulation (and…
  • Phil Kessel Is Grumpy And I like It

    Adam R
    4 Mar 2015 | 1:09 pm
    Phil Kessel’s interview with reporters yesterday showed his disdain with the media in Toronto and I think it’s a good thing. Why? I think the current sentiment from many Leafs fans is that there is an increasing level of apathy within the Leafs dressing room. To me, this interview showed that Kessel reached a bit of a breaking point and let his feelings out. There’s no doubt that Toronto must be a difficult city to play in, the media are relentless and, it seems, sometimes antagonistic. Phil Kessel certainly felt that way earlier in the year when he affectionately…
  • Ref Roundup: Post-Whistle Goals, Russian Ref, & Lindros Lawsuit

    Josh Smith
    4 Mar 2015 | 11:31 am
    Always play until the whistle, right? Sometimes, though, you can still score a goal even after it blows. In Sunday’s game between Vancouver and St. Louis, the whistle blew as Blues goaltender Jake Allen appeared to have the puck beneath his pads. We all know that a play can be blown dead before a whistle via a referee’s intent to blow. In this case, the whistle clearly sounded before the puck went in.   There was obviously intent to blow as well the actual whistle. Last season, that would have been enough to confirm the no-goal call. This year, though, a change to the NHL…
  • Is Canes Head Coach Bill Peters Missing the Obvious?

    Jonathan Gardner
    4 Mar 2015 | 10:30 am
    At the moment, head coach Bill Peters is held in high regard among Carolina Hurricanes fans. After years of Paul Maurice and Kirk Muller, it’s been a refreshing sight to see the team play with a clear-cut identity and to have a coach willing to hold the players accountable for poor play. Even when he makes a move that seems questionable at first, he does an excellent job of explaining his thought process and, for the most part, those moves become a bit more reasonable with that thought process in mind. However, if there’s one consistent criticism of the head coach, it would be his…

    3 Feb 2015 | 3:52 pm
    Time is ticking down on the Devil’s season, her minor hockey career and a major focus of our family’s life over the past 14 years or so. While this season has been a challenge on and off the ice for the Devil and I, there is still no substitute or equal to going to the rink and watching my kid play. And whether I like it or not, those chances are fleeting.

On November eighth the Jets won a 2-1 shootout decision against the Sens on the stick of Mathieu Perreault’s winner.

That Saturday night in California, thousands of Jets fans invaded the Staples Center to watch their team jump out to a quick 3-0 lead.

The Blues won the first meeting 4-2 when hometown boy Ryan Reaves scored midway through the third period, a goal that ended up being the winner.

In the second, Toronto again started well, and a power-play goal got them back on even terms. However, Florida got a power-play goal of their own, and despite having the better of the chances after two periods, the Leafs went into the third trailing. That’s when things got strange.

    A deadline of selling rentals and stockpiling depth picks was expected, until the Columbus Blue Jackets came calling with an offer too good to be true. Somehow, Toronto got out of the David Clarkson era relatively unscathed. Last summer, the Leafs signed three effective top-nine forwards who can each play up and down the line-up, at every forward position, drive play, play on the PK, and chip in 25+ points. Combined, Leo Komarov, Daniel Winnik and Mike Santorelli accounted for a $5.7M cap hit. On his own, David Clarkson made $5.25M. This season Clarkson will finish with fewer points than The…
