Penguins' Kunitz given 4th goal in win over Caps

The NHL agrees with Chris Kunitz - he scored four goals instead of three in the Pittsburgh Penguins' win over the Washington Capitals. The league announced Monday that Kunitz has been credited with a fourth goal from Sunday's 6-3 victory. Replays appeared to show that Kunitz redirected Paul Martin's shot from the point for the game's first goal. The official scorer...

GARTH: No More Mulligans

“We got all the way to 3-1, and played stupid”. Thomas Vanek nailed it. Again. It seems like these days that Vanek is the only Sabres who exhibits any form of consistency on a game to game basis. With Vanek, we’ve grown accustomed to knowing what we’re going to get from him. The same can’t be said about many of the other guys on the Buffalo roster. ...

Best Player So Far This Season

I have been picking the MVP of the season from as early a point as I reasonably can in the season.  This is in part to try to determine at which point in the season the eventual MVP emerges.  My first pick this season was Thomas Vanek of the Buffalo Sabres.  Last week he was surpassed by Patrick Marleau of the San Jose Sharks.  I think Vanek has taken over the lead again.  ...

It's getting awkward in Vancouver

Roberto Luongo made his fourth consecutive start Monday night for the Vancouver Canucks. Any other year, that would be nothing of note. But given the offseason the Canucks went through, it's a bit head-scratching. The Canucks seemed all but committed to Cory Schneider after giving the former backup a three-year contract extension worth $12 million. The secondary move, after...

About Last Night…Kunitz, Pens Veto Washington

Chris Kunitz’s hat trick powered Pittsburgh to a 6-3 win over the Washington Capitals Sunday afternoon. Kris Letang and Matt Cooke also had a goal and an assist each in the win. Evgeni Malkin added a pair of assists. Washington’s Alex Ovechkin had an assist for just his third point in eight games. John Carlson picked up a total fluke goal when his dump-in went off the glass and...

Ian Esplen: Luongo/Schneider

Follow me on twitter @IanEsplen to chat hockey, sports and life in general anytime Today I'd like to take a brief the controversy that is starting to brew and examine the value that both Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider have right now. Luongo There are few goaltenders that are playing as well as Roberto Luongo right now. The man just appears to be in the zone and...

A Start For The Ages

We know that Thomas Vanek leaves this weekend with an NHL leading 19 points, that news has been well covered.  He has carried this team on his back, in a year where the rest of the team, sans Pominville, is struggling to find their offense.  This isn’t unusual for Vanek.  He is notoriously a fast starter.  In fact, over his career, he has more than a point per game average...

Vancouver's Goalie Controversy

It looks like Luongo will get the starts in Vancouver Now your probably reading this and saying why is this on a Bruins blog?  The answer is because I, like most Bruins fans despise the Canucks and all their antics after that 7 game Stanley Cup finals, and nothing makes me happier than seeing a team I hate so much having a bunch of problems.  At the start of the short season...

Ian Esplen: Canucks/Oilers

Follow me on twitter @IanEsplen to chat hockey, sports and life in general anytime After having a day off, The Vancouver Canucks hope to continue on their winning ways tonight, as they head into oil country. The Canucks will go with Roberto Luongo between the pipes and who can really blame them on this one? Luongo is playing as well as any goalie right now and he has a pretty...

Vancouver Canucks vs. Edmonton Oilers Game 9 notes, prediction & tweets!

I Love Lou Cory Schneider is still the starter of the Vancouver Canucks in the same way Roberto Luongo was still the starter last year when Schneider was riding a hot hand. All that’s really happening right now is that Luongo is increasing his trade value. Oh, and Ryan Kesler took part in his first practice yesterday. Things are looking up. Matchup: Vancouver Canucks (4 – 2...

Canucks vs. Edmonton Oilers betting odds and handicapping preview

For the NHL Bettors! Headline: Canucks Invade Edmonton With 1st Place on the Line The Vancouver Canucks head Northeast on Monday night to take on one of their threats in the Northwest Division of the NHL. The Canucks enter Monday’s contest having won 2 straight games while the young Oilers return home after losing two of three games on the road, and having played their worst game...

Canucks-Oilers Preview

The Edmonton Oilers served notice in their season opener that they probably won't be pushovers against the Vancouver Canucks this season. Already with a rare victory over Roberto Luongo, the Oilers look for more success against the Canucks in Monday night's rematch at Rexall Place. Edmonton (4-3-1) took only one of six 2011-12 meetings against Vancouver, but got off to...

A House Undefended

Separate and distinct from the scoreboard verdict, there was a disquieting vibe to Super Sunday’s matinee tilt between the Penguins and Capitals. I sat down low in Verizon Center for it, and I didn’t like the vibe at all. This game is a special tradition on our hockey calendar. While there are a handful of other games this day, Pittsburgh and Washington own Super Bowl Sunday...

Panthers 4, Sabres 3

By Mark Ludwiczak BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Florida Panthers overcame a 3-1 deficit to defeat the Buffalo Sabres 4-3 on Sunday at the First Niagara Center. Brian Campbell scored the winning goal with 10:33 remaining in the final period. The former Sabre found himself with plenty of net to shoot at after Tomas Kopecky tried to deke in front of the Buffalo net. The puck found its way...
