Game of the night: Chicago Blackhawks @ Philadelphia Flyers 7:00 ET… TV: Local Networks Records: Overall: Blackhawks (24-11-4) … Flyers (22-11-4) Away/Home: Blackhawks (10-7-1) … Flyers (8-6-2) Last 10: Blackhawks (7-3-0) … Flyers (5-4-1) Season Series (10/11): 1-0 Flyers
Players to watch: CHI- Patrick Kane Kane returns to Philly for the first time since he scored the Cup-winning goal in June 2010. PHI- Scott Hartnell Hartnell has been awfully consistent since the start of December with 16 points in the last 14 games.
Injury report: CHI- Steve Montador (upper body, out), Marcus Kruger (concussion, out) PHI- Jaromir Jagr (groin, out), Chris Pronger (concussion, out), Blair Betts (knee, out)
Game thoughts: For just the second time, the Blackhawks and Flyers meet in a 2010 Stanley Cup rematch. And for the first time, they will meet in Philadelphia. Peter Laviolette’s gang will be looking to rebound from a disappointing loss in the Winter Classic on Monday, while the Blackhawks can regain the Western Conference lead with a win. I would expect to see some fireworks and great action. If Bryzgalov isn’t lost in the woods with a thermos, go with the Flyers… Prediction: Flyers 3, Blackhawks 2 (SO)
The rest of today’s predictions: Bruins over Flames Jets over Maple Leafs Rangers over Panthers Lightning over Senators Blues over Oilers Stars over Predators Coyotes over Kings Sharks over Blue Jackets ---
People bring all kinds of things to hockey games in the hopes of throwing them onto the ice. Usually, hats. Previously this season, we've seen one fan go so far as to throw a dead duck over the boards. But we've never seen a fan crazy enough to throw a sex toy onto the ice. Until now. One enterprising fan attending the Canadiens-Jets game appears to have thrown a sex toy...
It sure looks like a ***** in this picture, and I wouldn’t put it past a Montreal Canadiens fan to bring such an item to a game in anticipation of one of the Habs netting a hat trick. I just hope that it wasn’t in slightly used condition when it made it’s way to the ice.
Whether or not the red, phallic-shaped item found amongst the hats strewn on the ice following Montreal...
Kicking 2012 Off with a Bang!
So, unless you were hiding under a rock last night, most every Canadiens fan is now well aware of the unreal performance by Lars Eller last night against the Winnipeg Jets.
Not only did he score 4 goals and add an assist, but he actually gave his fans and teammates something to smile about.
While it can be argued whether or not this will go...
Lars Eller had four goals and an assist, Travis Moen had three assists, and the Montreal Canadiens bounced back from a poor road trip with a 7-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday night.
Eller scored his fourth goal of the game on a penalty shot 11 minutes into the third, spinning around to beat Chris Mason for his third tally of the period. He did a backward somersault over...
Roberto Luongo appears to be dodging a bullet on Saturday. Then again, the Canucks may be making a big mistake. With the announcement that Cory Schneider will get the start for the Canucks in their hotly-anticipated rematch of the Stanley Cup Final against the Bruins, Boston fans hoping to see Luongo back in the crease are sure to be disappointed. The TD Garden was a house of horrors...
The siren had sounded, the cheers lingered, and Lars Eller skated out as first star of the night. He tossed pucks into the stands, but he remained longer than most would, and he applauded the adoring and delighted fans. He smiled and clapped again, and when he finally left the ice, in the corridor he jumped in the air.
Lars Eller had a right to smile and linger and jump. Because...
Darn. Corey Schneider is expected between the pipes for the Canucks on Saturday, getting the nod over Roberto Luongo from coach Alain Vigneault. Schneider confirmed the fact after pracice on Friday, as reported by NESN.com's Douglas Flynn. During the Stanley Cup Finals between the Bruins and Canucks, Luongo was abysmal on the TD Garden ice, getting pulled twice. The goaltender...
Leading the league in goals, the Tampa Bay Lightning's Steven Stamkos remains one of the most potent scoring forwards in the NHL.
If his latest effort is any indication, center Lars Eller could provide the Montreal Canadiens with a formidable offensive threat of their own.
Montreal looks to post back-to-back wins for just the second time in nearly two months Saturday night...
