The second round of the AHL playoffs completed yesterday. My first round coverage was here. Here are the results from the second round:
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins defeat Providence Bruins four games to three. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton is the Pittsburgh Penguins farm team and Providence belongs to the Boston Bruins. Providence had a 3-0 lead in this series and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton fought their way back to win the series with four straight wins. Trevor Smith and Chad Kolarik were the top scorers for the Penguins. Brian Dumoulin led their defence. Brad Thiessen played very well in their goal. Chris Bourque and Carter Camper led the Providence offence. Matt Bartowski had been their top defenceman until he got called up in the playoffs. This may be an excuse for the Providence loss. Niklas Svedberg was their goaltender. Continue reading "AHL Playoffs Second Round"

With the big win last night the Penguins have Ottawa on the brink of elimination and have afforded themselves the opportunity to get their #1 goalie back into the fold.
Many will argue that Tomas Vokoun is the hot hand and the Penguins should leave him in net. On the other side many will argue that Marc-André Fleury has experience under the pressures of Stanley Cup games and...

After having their series lead cut in half by a stunning 2 to 1 overtime victory by the Senators Sunday evening, the Penguins were looking to rebound with a decisive victory and take a third game in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference Semi-Final. Ottawa, riding the momentum of both the victory and home ice advantage, was looking to tie the series at a two apiece.
Jarome Iginla and James Neal each scored twice and the Pittsburgh Penguins routed the Ottawa Senators 7-3 on Wednesday night to take a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal series.
Sidney Crosby, Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis also scored for Pittsburgh, and Tomas Vokoun made 30 saves. Down 2-1 after the first period, the Penguins scored twice in a 40-second span early in...
With Tomas Vokoun in goal, there has been a feeling that the Pittsburgh Penguins would make a point- to outscore everyone if they needed to for a win, to protect their back-up goaltender, and to tell their starting goaltender, Marc-Andre Fleury, that all you have to be is hot to make a run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs...
It takes effort from everyone every...

Good goal according to on-ice officials and Toronto.
Sometimes it's not how you start but how you finish.The Pittsburgh Penguins trailed 2-1 after the first period, then exploded with six unanswered goals to take a commanding 3-1 series lead. James Neal and Jarome Iginla each scored two, while Kris Letang added four helpers in a 7-3 smattering of the Ottawa Senators.The Penguins controlled the puck for most of the first period...
During the second period of game five of the Pittsburgh Penguins-Ottawa Senators series, Penguins forward James Neal scored a very strange goal on Senators goalie Craig Anderson. After Neal’s initial shot was stopped by Anderson, Kris Letang picked up the puck and tried to bank it off Anderson. Letang’s shot rolled around and the puck was on edge and got stuck underneath...
The Pittsburgh Penguins are visiting the Ottawa Senators in game 4 of this series. The Penguins lead 2-1 and the Senators need a win in order to avoid an elimination game in Pittsburgh on Friday.
The puck drops around 7:37pm ET and can be watched on NBCSN, CBC and RDS.

Former NHL prospect Konstantin Pushkarev has signed a one year extension with Barys Astana of the KHL. Pushkarev was drafted in the second round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Los Angeles Kings, but traded to the Dallas Stars late in the 2006–07 NHL season in the deal involving former Kings captain Mattias Norström. He played one game for the Kings in [...]

For the first time this season, the Ottawa Senators will be faced with the reality of elimination: win Friday and head back to Scotiabank Place for game six, lose Friday and watch the season come to a close.
Winning a game on the road at CONSOL is going to be an undeniably tall-task. The Penguins were 18-6-0 on home-ice this season,...
The playoffs are about lessons. Some teams learn. Some teams don't. Some teams die.
With an extra day off between games, the anticipation for Game Four was able to reach its maximum levels as we all waited for some questions to be answered.

With a 6-2 win over the Ottawa Senators, the Pittsburgh Penguins move on to the Eastern Conference Finals.
The Senators had a tough time finding any momentum and now many will ask if Daniel Alfredsson has played his last NHL game.
