RECAP: GAME 56. Pens fall 2-1

What was the one buzzword or buzzphrase missing during the pregame hype that NBC was feeding this game? “Stanley Cup Finals preview.” Both of these teams are definitely in the top 33% of the league, which would mean they’re both in the top 10. Nothing wrong with that. But other teams are catching up fast. The Pens have an insane Metro Division to keep up with, while the Blackhawks...

The transition game: Blues must put the kibosh on odd-man rushes

ST. LOUIS -- Lately, the moments when the Blues look ready to attack have turned out to be when they're most vulnerable. Too many odd-man rushes for opponents have long been a complaint this season for coach Ken Hitchcock, and the loss of active defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk to injury has made matters even worse. St. Louis may be doing a better job overall of controlling the puck...

Minnesota Wild: Thomas Vanek Boards Marcus Kruger (Video)

First, I want to be clear, I think Minnesota Wild forward Thomas Vanek is a good hockey player that's having a tough season. Hoever, this is a stupid penalty that cost the Wild a goal. There's no reason for Vanek to hit Chicago Blackhawks forward Marcus Kruger in the numbers like that. Kruger doesn't even have the puck. For his efforts, Vanek received a five-minute major for boarding...

2nd period let downs helps thwart Wild in 5-3 loss to Chicago

Jonas Brodin battles Chicago’s Marcus Kruger. The playoffs are where rivalries are made, or at least that is a common belief among sports fans.  A win or a loss in a playoff series can boost the confidence or haunt a club for years and some feel an element of hatred develops between those teams especially if they play in a series of games.  This might be blasphemy to some fans...

Bruins-Blackhawks 3 Stars: Chicago’s Fourth Line Shines Offensively

BOSTON — The Chicago Blackhawks are a four-line team that receives scoring from a number of different players throughout the lineup.
