Sharks' Ryane Clowe blatantly cheated, while sitting on the bench, and got away with it (Video)

San Jose Sharks left winger Ryane Clowe blatantly cheated, and got away with it, while sitting on the bench during the third period of Thursday night's NHL game against the Los Angeles Kings.

Vezina comparison: Quick vs. Lundqvist

The race for the Vezina trophy may come down to three finalists, but this year it’s a two horse race between Henrik Lundqvist and Jonathan Quick. To be fair, both are very deserving of the award. They have had tremendous years, and are clearly the two best goalies this year. While we have been spoiled by having the best goalie in the world in net, the Kings would not be anywhere...

Tests revealed...

Could Quick Steal Vezina from Lundqvist?

Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy tries to make a compelling argument for Jonathan Quick to win the Vezina Trophy over Henrik Lundqvist..."But if you see the Vezina as an award not only for the goalie "adjudged to be the best at this position" but also the goalie who was vital to his team's success, then Jonathan Quick beats Henrik Lundqvist for the award. He has better...

The bitter rivals conclude the regular season in what could be a winner-takes...

Sutter On Quick

from Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider, Darryl Sutter might say simple things, but be assured that he’s not a simple man. Every coach has his own motivational tools, and every coach knows that what he says publicly has a good chance of making its way to his players’ eyes and ears. To that end, Sutter gave some interesting comments today, after initially being asked about Jonathan...

Most Improved Goalie This Season

Yesterday I wrote that I think Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators is the most improved player this season.  Commenters quickly pointed out Brian Elliott of the St Louis Blues.  While Elliott has had a huge statistical improvement in his play this season, I do not see it as a huge sustained improvement.  I wouldn’t list him among the elite goalies in the NHL.  There are several...
