Found March 15, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Jamie McGinn netted his second goal with two seconds to play in regulation and Peter Mueller scored in the second round of the shootout as the visiting Colorado Avalanche skated to a 5-4 victory over the Buffalo Sabres late Wednesday. The win was Colorado's third straight and fifth in six games. Rookie Gabriel Landeskog posted his 20th goal and David Jones also tallied for the Avalanche, who broke a four-way tie for eighth place in the Western Conference. Semyon Varlamov improved to a perfect 8-0 in shootouts this season by stopping Brad Boyes, captain Jason Pominville and Tyler Ennis. In the waning moments of the third period, Landeskog raced up the wing and wristed a shot on Ryan Miller. Ryan O'Reilly settled the puck and flipped a shot which trickled past the netminder before McGinn alertly tapped it home. The tally was his seventh in eight games since joining the Avalanche.

my take on the rookie of the year race

Today, as I listened to sports talk radio here in Vancouver, I heard the name Gabriel Landeskog and the words 'rookie of the year' mentioned in the same sentence. While Landeskog and the rest of his teammates on the Colorado Avalanche are getting a lot of attention with their resurgent play of late, I believe it is premature to hand Landeskog the trophy just yet. Landeskog...

Brodeur and Giguere Battle Like It’s 2003

Most Successful Deadline Traded Player

The NHL trade deadline occurred on the 27th of February.  That is barely half a month ago.  It was a day that was remarkable for the lack of big deals.  I thought the biggest deal of the deadline period was the Jeff Carter deal.  It is too early to make any final decisions about the deadline deals but some early returns are in.  The most successful player who was dealt so far...
