Breakdown: Game 14 – Penguins 2, Flames 5

By: @chetstead   The Penguins’ trip through Western Canada ended on a sour note with a loss to the Calgary Flames. The Penguins entered the game having won nine consecutive times against Calgary. This was an example of what happens when the Pens get the kind of offense they’ve had all season and the defense, which has played well, breaks down. It’s not pretty. Dupuis sat...

Calgary Flames ready to ride Gaudreau back to playoffs

Brad Treliving, the general manager of the Calgary Flames, could have spent the offseason basking in his team's unexpected playoff appearance last spring. Instead, Treliving examined the season and came to a different conclusion. ''Last year was a good year,'' Treliving said. ''We did some things that would be a challenge.'' Indeed, the Flames won nine of 13 games in overtime, won...

Calgary Flames season preview: Depth on defense fuels expectation

Plus: Calgary bolstered its impressive defensive corps by adding offensive-minded blue-liner Dougie Hamilton from Boston in the offseason and signed captain Mark Giordano to a six-year, $40.5 million contract extension in the summer.

New Bruin Irwin begins campaign to prove defensive doubters wrong

The Bruins' defense is a squadron full of doubts. The team traded the defenseman of the future, Dougie Hamilton, before the NHL Draft and never acquired a high-quality blue-liner with which to replace him.Instead, the Bruins resigned Adam McQuaid and picked up a relative no-name, defenseman Matt Irwin, who some believe won't be more than a seventh defenseman. But Irwin seems set...

Zach Trotman Is Best Option For Bruins’ First Pairing With Zdeno Chara

BOSTON — The Bruins have had a pretty good idea over the last few years of who would be playing alongside captain and No. 1 defenseman Zdeno Chara on the first pairing. Johnny Boychuk, Dennis Seidenberg and Dougie Hamilton most recently occupied that spot, and regardless of who was playing with Big Z, that pairing was one of the NHL’s best in preventing goals and driving puck...

Bruins Blue Line Will Have Lots Of Internal Competition In Training Camp

WILMINGTON, Mass. — The Boston Bruins didn’t defend well enough throughout last season, and the blue line could be a weak spot again given the youth and inexperience amongst the current group. Dougie Hamilton’s departure in the offseason left the Bruins with one legitimate top-four defenseman: Zdeno Chara. The B’s captain still is a top-tier defenseman, but he’s 38 years...

Coyotes aren't alone in needing a right-handed defenseman

A central part of the Coyotes' offseason plan was to trade for 22-year-old right-handed defenseman Dougie Hamilton. At 6-feet-5 and 212 pounds, Hamilton was viewed as a foundational piece who would have played on the team's top pairing with Oliver Ekman-Larsson for a decade or longer. The fact former Coyotes executive Brad Treliving (now Calgary's GM) swooped in and landed Hamilton...

Bruins Notes: Tuukka Rask Not Worried About Defense Sans Dougie Hamilton

To say Dougie Hamilton’s departure from Boston was a shocker earlier this summer would be an understatement.
