Schenn Plays Huge Role In Flyers' Comeback

Rinne comes up big in 3-2 win over Detroit in Game 1

What Did Game 1 of the Flyers-Pens Series Show Us?

Brayden Schenn broke out in Game 1 of the Flyers-Pens series, and helped the Flyers to a comeback win with a goal and two assists. In a game that Philadelphia sports fans will regard as folklore for generations to come, the Flyers bounced back from an early three goal deficit to defeat the interstate rival Penguins in overtime. While this is obviously a great win to open a playoff...

Ryan Kesler Somersaults Into Embellishment Hall of Fame Before Mike Richards Destroys Alexandre Burrows (Video)

The Los Angeles Kings got the first, second and last laughs on Wednesday night, topping the Canucks 4-2 in Game 1 of their playoff series. First, it was a Habs-esque embellishment by Ryan Kesler in the third period, tied 2-2, that would make even the softest soccer fan cringe. Then, during the closing seconds, it was Mike Richards (who had a goal and two assists) cleaning out Boston...

Red Wings-Predators Preview

Pekka Rinne fills up so much of the net at 6-foot-5, and the Nashville goaltender led the NHL with 43 wins while facing more shots than anyone else. Jimmy Howard was on quite the run for Detroit himself, leading the league in wins and on pace to top Terry Sawchuk's franchise record of 44 victories himself before breaking his index finger and then injuring his groin. Nashville...

Weber, Rinne expect Detroit to step up game on Friday night

Predators captain Shea Weber wanted to focus on Game 2 of the Western Conference quarterfinals rather than the late hit on Detroit’s Henrik Zetterberg when he spoke with the media on Friday morning. “I’m excited for Game 2. I know Detroit is going to come out flying. They are going to be better and we need to be better as well. Both teams are two of the most disciplined teams...

Will Detroit find their playoff groove?

Detroit Red Wings fans are concerned for these playoffs. The majority didn't want to be facing the Nashville Predators, even if the Red Wings had home-ice advantage. The Predators have their number this season (and have for the past few seasons as well), and Pekka Rinne always tends to play like Dominik Hasek mixed with Terry Sawchuk mixed with Martin Brodeur in his prime whenever...

The Bottom 6, Lucky Bounces, and Impekkable Pekka: What to take out of Game 1

Photo Credit: John Russell/NHLI via Getty Images Everyone knew this series was going to be a scrappy and down-right rough between the Red Wings and Predators, but who knew that it was going to start from Game 1? While you could sit there and point to a ton of different aspects as to what the real reason the Predators pulled out the victory last night, the bottom line is that they...

Scouting The Enemy After Game One

Game one is over and I hope you all feel the hate.  I do, I feel it growing inside me.  I’ve always hated Tootoo.  For obvious reasons, I now hate Weber.  And I think we’re going to grow to hate Gaustad, Radalov, Rinne, Fisher, and the like.  But now let’s look at what the enemy is saying about game one, starting with OnTheForecheck: In the end, a win like this is...
