The Capitals beat the Senators last night 5-3. This is Ottawa Senators Player Chris Neil taking a stick to the midsection by Alex Ovechkin. Or was it. Ovechkin was simply skating down the ice to catch up with the play. The stick barely looks like it touches Neil and you can see Neil look to his left to see where the referee is before he goes down to the ice. Neil was eventually...
One longterm question that I like to think about is which current NHL players will make the Hockey Hall of Fame and at which point in their career have they cemented that honor regardless of what happens in the remainder of their career. I think Daniel Alfredsson has recently surpassed this threshold.
Alfredsson is the first line right winger with the Ottawa Senators. He...
Check out this spear by Alex Ovechkin, that is unacceptable and it will be interesting to see if the league will suspend Ovechkin for his spear on Ottawa Senators tough guy Chris Neil. The video doesn't lie, that was a blatant spear and if Ovechkin doesn't like being checked he should take a number and get Neil back the correct way. To add injury to insult Chris Neil...
Reports from this morning's practice indicated that the team's line combinations remain unchanged from Monday night's win against the Tampa Bay. Under normal circumstances, this wouldn't be particularly surprising but for most of the game, the trio of Colin Greening, Jason Spezza and Bobby Butler was pretty ineffective. So much so that when the Senators fell one...
Nick Foligno has inserted his name on the ballot for goal of the year. Foligno picked up a pass in the neutral zone and beat a Washington Capitals defense man along the boards and then dangled through the slot. After powering through the slot Foligno cut below the goal line and reached back with one hand to tuck the puck past Capitals goaltender, Tomas Vokoun.The Senators went...
For this article, I asked Swedish hockey fan @steffeG to cover last night's Swedish supermatch of the season. Here's what he filed: Thursday night was the much anticipated night of the big Sens prospect showdown in the Swedish Elite League: Jakob Silfverberg's Brynäs visiting Mika Zibanejad's Djurgården. Everyone in Sweden was in their most comfortable chairs for...
Bryan Murray has been summarily roasted for his work in the summer of 2009, when he sent Dany Heatley to the San Jose Sharks for the seemingly paltry return of Milan Michalek, Jonathan Cheechoo, and a 2nd round pick.
It was a terribly handled situation from beginning to end, what with every ounce of it playing out publicly, from Heatley's initial trade request to Murray'...
Daniel Alfredsson hardly needs to be reminded about the impending milestone.
"It's close. It's coming up quick," the Ottawa Senators captain said with a knowing grin in reference to his 39th birthday, which arrives on Sunday.
