An increasingly rare pose; Brad Richards goal celebration.
Who knew Brad Richards’ fall from grace would be so quick, so sudden? In what looks like an irreversible decline in both form and ability, Brad Richards offering up the occasional solid period here or decent game, won’t likely be enough to stop his premature departure from the Rangers. Not many people anticipated him...
Oscar Lindberg and his heavily favored Skelleftea AIK squad jumped out to a 2-0 series lead over Lulea in the SEL Finals this weekend. Skelleftea won the games by scores of 1-0 (in OT) and 4-2.

The Philadelphia Flyers' wins in the last two games are of little consequence to this lost season. Ranked 22nd of the NHL's 30 teams and 11th in the Eastern Conference with five games remaining on their schedule, the playoffs are not a realistic scenario even though Philly is not yet mathematically eliminated.
However, Philadelphia's 7-3 win in Montreal on Monday...
(In light of the events in Boston earlier in the day, we’re going to keep this wrap-up super-short. Each team will be limited to five words to describe them.)
Scott Hartnell recorded a hat trick as Philly downed Montreal 7-3. Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds and Jakub Voracek each also scored for the Flyers.
SPIN-PHI: Flyers show their full potential. SPIN-MTL: Good teams win this...

The Philadelphia Flyers did the Sabres a solid by kicking the NY Rangers on Tuesday night. The Winnipeg Jets refused to help the Sabres, who sit all alone in tenth place (42 points) with five games remaining. If Buffalo are going to make a serious move to secure a share of the eight-seed, they have no choice other than to win its next two games in regulation: at Boston tonight and at home to...
