Should Bruins Fans Be Concerned About Boston's Chances?

      After a double overtime loss to the Capitals yesterday, should Bruins fans be concerned? If the Bruins want to win this series, then their top lines have to start producing. Over the past two games, the third and fourth lines have been producing most of the shots on goal and all of the scoring. Some could blame the Bruins scoring slump to the Cap's goaltender Braden...

Vancouver Canucks fans wonder if a four win comeback is possible

Can they still beat the LA Kings? The numbers are daunting. Only three teams in history, out of 167 opportunities, have recovered from a three games to none deficit in the Stanley Cup finals. That is a pathetic winning comeback rate of just 1.8%. So, then it must certainly be time to write the eulogy for this Vancouver Canucks team, should it not? Not so fast. Quite clearly the...

Who Predicted This?

from Damien Cox of The Spin, There was no sign this was coming. No sign at all six days ago that either the Vancouver Canucks or the Pittsburgh Penguins were in danger, or would quickly lose their first three games of the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs and find themselves on the precipice. Even those who predicted the Pens and Canucks would lose in the first round foresaw long, drawn...
