No Coast Bias Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015 Preview: Montreal Canadiens (1) vs. Ottawa Senators (4)

Season Recap: Montreal Canadiens (50-22-10, 110 Points) The Canadiens team featured this season was the definition of an elite defensive team, head-manned by Carey Price’s rise to the top of the goalie totem pole. He’d been chomping at the heels of the upper echelon for a few seasons, right behind guys like Henrik Lundqvist, Johnathan Quick, [&hellip (Visited 1 times, 1...

Full Season Grades – Goaltending

Henrik Lundqvist (46 GP; 30-13-3, 2.25 GAA, .922 SV%, 5 SO; Midseason Grade: A-) Missed most of February and March with a throat injury. Looked rusty in first game back against Boston but has been virtually unbeatable since. .931 SV% in last 6 games. Shown no ill effects since. Lowest output (aside from 2012 lockout) should make him quite fresh for the Rangers in the playoffs. Bad...

Is Henrik Lundqvist the Best Goalie in the NHL Playoffs?

View image | gettyimages.com The NHL playoffs begin this week.  I figured it’d be a good idea for TopSportsReport to have rankings to help fans understand the playoffs better, make their predictions better, and also, simply increase discussion surrounding this year’s playoffs. The goalie is one of the most important players on the ice, if not the most important.  Taking...

Why Not the Pittsburgh Penguins?

Marc-Andre Fleury has given this team a chance night after night and hopefully will continue to do so. (Elsa/Getty Images) By: Joe Guzy It took 82 games, but the Pittsburgh Penguins punched their ticket to the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs. It took a win against the “nothing left to lose” Buffalo Sabres.

Checking in on the Rangers goaltending prospects

Fire David Morehouse by @BrianK_PI

The 2014 offseason was supposed to be about fixing the issues that plagued the Pittsburgh Penguins franchise. The buildup to the playoffs hinted that Dan Bylsma very well could be a short timer. It appeared the team was increasingly tuning him out, that there was growing discontent in a locker room that had been one of the tightest-knit groups in the entire league, that his strategies...

Open Thread 4/10: Four Thoughts

1) First off, there won’t be a recap of last night’s game, but I’ll go over just a couple things from last night’s loss. I’m not 100% sure whether keeping Henrik Lundqvist in the game last night after Mika Zibanejad fell on his leg in the first period was the correct move. Of course Henrik is going to say he’s OK, because well, he did and said the same things after he...

It's time for the playoff bound New York Rangers to wake up

After a 5-1 win against the Ottawa Senators that secured a playoff spot, the New York Rangers’ level of determination has simply been lackluster. Starting from the game in New York against the Los Angeles Kings on March 24, their remaining schedule consists of a bunch teams that are either in the playoffs and barely holding on, or are bubble teams.
