PIMs are a bit misleading, as there’s no real difference between someone who takes undisciplined stick penalties and some heat of the moment roughing/fighting penalties. Ok, fights are easily tracked, but the minor penalties aren’t in the PIMs...

Is there a “good” first round matchup for the Rangers?

  Pick a team, any team… With the Rangers finally clinching a playoff spot last night with their win over Carolina, the final game of the season against the Devils has lost some significance.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m tremendously grateful that the boys from Newark don’t get to play spoiler against us a week after we eliminated them from postseason contention.  However...

No Word on Clowe, But Newbury Recalled

There is still no word on Ryane Clowe's condition after he was forced to leave last night's game with either a leg injury or an elbow to the head by Bobby Sanguinetti. Larry Brooks at the New York Post speculates that it's a right leg injury. In an early indication of how bad it might be, the Rangers recalled Kris Newbury after the game. ...no idea what the injury...

Sens clinch playoffs Karlsson returns

Erik Karlsson stood outside the visiting locker room, munching on a celebratory slice of pizza. Must have tasted pretty good.

They might even wind up back in the same arena next week. Sergei Gonchar scored a power-play goal 47...

Spezza Not Close To A Return

from Ian Mendes of Sportsnet, Ottawa Senators’ players have been making miraculous recoveries from injuries lately, but it doesn’t sound like Jason Spezza will join that list — at least any time soon.

"Is The Honeymoon With Cory Conacher Over?"

In the aftermath of Monday night’s loss to the Penguins, Sun columnist Don Brennan concluded a column by asking the question,“Is the honeymoon with Cory Conacher over already?” I have no idea what prompted Brennan to pose the query, it could have been a word quota, but a glance at Conacher’s numbers from Monday -- 12:48 in ice-time, one shot, two hits and a giveaway...
