NBC will air a documentary on Lokomotiv Yaroslavl this Saturday

"The darkest day in hockey history."  The voice of Liev Schriber is not describing some petty NHL owner-induced lockout, no painful body check to the head or even a career-ending injury. He is talking about the 2011 plane crash of Yak-Service Flight 9633, a plane carrying the entire Lokomotiv Yaroslavl hockey team. Everyone on board the plane died, and an entire hockey...

Miks Indrasis ties KHL game with incredible Mike Legg Lacrosse-Style goal

Since Mike Legg did this move against Minnesota in the West Regional of the 1996 NCAA tournament to help get Michigan back in the hockey game, there have been many imitations of the move.  So many in fact, that I think the hockey world has lost count.  That doesn’t make this play any less impressive though.Former NHL goalie Curtis Sanford was playing extremely well and his team...

Lokomotiv a year later

Retrospectives and anniversaries of tragedies are hard for me to write on. Tragedies themselves find me at a loss of words, but to ask how I feel a year or so after one happens just seems to make the words come out clunkier. I know that I write because I'm a terrible verbal communicator, but when it comes to serious topics, it's almost as though my chronic muteness comes...

Jackets' biggest need is to improve in goal

The possible trade of Blue Jackets captain Rick Nash will grab most of the headlines this summer in Columbus, but it's not the only seismic move on the club's horizon.

Deep Digging On the Clock Issue

from Mike Sielski of the Wall Street Journal, To watch the closing seconds of the Los Angeles Kings’ 3-2 win last month over the Columbus Blue Jackets is to see a thrilling sequence of hockey. At the last possible moment, with the score tied, Kings defenseman Drew Doughty snaps the puck past Columbus goaltender Curtis Sanford. The goal wins the game. The crowd thunders. Most regular...

Should the Columbus Blue Jackets call up Manny Legace?

Saturday’s 6-1 loss proved to be an utter disappointment for the Columbus Blue Jackets. If there was a team in the sharpest decline and considerable vulnerability, they were looking at it. On the even-strength, the Blue Jackets were out-played. Although more pucks went on net in their favour — 34-28 — the end result was nightmarish. Manny Legace has spent the...

Moments In Time: Top 5 Vancouver Canucks backup goalies in history

Always #1 With The Fans! Back-up goalies are a funny, strange lot. They are eyed rather suspiciously at times by the incumbent starters, like devious theatrical understudies hoping for an injury to the lead, or the Mr. Hyde to Dr. Jekyll. Though the position has historically been given short shrift in the league, the value of having a solid relief goaltender is increasingly important...
