Longest streak since ‘83-84, when Flyers had 35+ shots in 12 straight.” I know, they always shoot a lot but it is neat to break long-standing records.  The fact that the Flyers hold that record now does make it more ...

Sansevere: Maybe Wild grew up a little too fast

Nice win for the Wild the other night. They blew a two-goal lead with 3 minutes left in regulation Tuesday evening, then beat the San Jose Sharks in a shootout.

Almost half way there

One of the things that stuck out for me in the Sharks’ Tuesday loss to Minnesota was how many times Niemi got run into or buried under bodies. He seems like a sturdy fellow but that has to be kind of tough on a goalie. That’s a special kind of failure to defend. That was just one symptom of breakdowns from the Sharks. There were enough such to have McLellan shuffling the lines...
