Time for the NHL to Embarass the Divers

#57060815 / gettyimages.coms/t Pro hockey talk... I really like the idea of exposing and publically humiliating the divers in the NHL. I am all in on that idea. In fact, let's have a wall of shame and expose the frauds weekly that cheapen the game of hockey. I have a great idea. Let's have an end of the season dishonor award for the frauds that get caught diving and embellishing...

Staal, Hurricanes beat Maple Leafs 6-1

Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller wasn't sure how his team would respond after Tuesday's game at Buffalo was postponed by a blizzard. With the way Carolina is playing right now, it is going to take more than a change in plans to throw off the Hurricanes' rhythm. Jordan Staal had a goal and three assists, and Jeff Skinner extended his offensive surge with a goal and an assist to lead...

Metro Division’s underperforming teams keep Carolina Hurricanes alive in playoff race
