Sens G Robin Lehner Misplays Puck, Erik Karlsson Saves Empty Net Goal

Ottawa Senators goalie Robin Lehner went to play the puck in what seemed to be a pretty run-of-the-mill play when things went completely wrong. Lehner’s clearing attempt was blocked by Brad Marchand and Lehner tried to stop Marchand by diving at him/falling down and it clearly didn’t work. Fortunately for Lehner, Erik Karlsson stayed home […] The post Sens G Robin Lehner Misplays...

Why Did the Ottawa Senators Fire Paul MacLean?

The Ottawa Senators were expected to be, at best, a playoff bubble team this season. They traded away Jason Spezza and essentially replaced him with David Legwand. There was a leadership shake-up since the departure of Daniel Alfredsson and the naming of Erik Karlsson as captain. Guys like Bobby Ryan and Kyle Turris were expected […] The post Why Did the Ottawa Senators Fire Paul...

The Anchor Who Brings Down the Play of Others

Examining the best and worst puck-movers in the NHL

Perhaps the top priorities of any NHL franchise, behind goaltenders, are solid puck moving defenders. Elite center men are essential components of any winning team, however without defenders able to move the puck out of their own zone these forwards do not have as much opportunity to showcase their offensive skills. It is very difficult to attain these types of players unless they...
