Having participated in yesterday’s charitable NHL All-Star alumni vs Montreal Canadiens alumni game, former Senator forward Alexei Kovalev expressed difficulty coming to terms with the realization that his NHL career is over.

“We’re trying to keep our competitive level extremely high,” said second-year coach Kevin...
The last place team in the NHL is the Florida Panthers. They have only won nine of their 34 games to date. This gives them 25 losses. Six of those losses produced regulation tie points to give the team 24 points. They are the team with the worst goals against in the NHL. They are the third lowest scoring team in the NHL. They have allowed 39 more gals than they have scored...
After the embarrassing decision last week to not suspend Rick Nash after his cheap shot on Tomas Kopecky, another decision was looming on Colby Robak's "hit" on New Jersey Devil's player, Tim Sestito.
I know most of you have probably seen this already, but just to refresh here is the hit on Kopecky:
The news of no suspension on Nash was followed by shock,...
