Joe Pavelski, Joel Ward Leading Way Offensively For San Jose Sharks (Video)

The San Jose Sharks are right in the thick of things early in the 2015-16 NHL season, and Joe Pavelski and Joel Ward are two big reasons why.

Valiant third period effort not enough for the Washington Capitals

Game 6 between the Washington Capitals and New York Rangers was, in my opinion, the best game of the series so far. Throughout the entire game there was a sense of a must-win scenario. Of course, the Rangers needed to win game 6 to stay in the playoffs, but there was also pressure on the Caps to eliminate the Rangers and prevent a game 7. Both teams put forth a tremendous effort...

Former Predator Ward represents tricky lesson in NHL economics

When the Washington Capitals awarded Joel Ward a four-year, $12-million contract in 2011, it seemed like an outrageous sum at the time. Ward was coming off a regular season in which he scored 10 goals in 80 games.
