Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 84

Talk about a Friday night heavyweight tilt. Tonight’s game at the Coliseum between the Islanders and Penguins will be an absolute barn burner. Those in attendance will surely have some kind of hearing loss and there will be approximately zero complaints about it when you wake up tomorrow morning with your ears still ringing. I’ll be in Section 337 with the missus. If you need...

Mike Francesa had Mark Messier on his show despite it being 'football, playoff time' and all

Could we steal one tonight? Why bother.

The Edmonton Oilers are going to get spanked hard tonight by the New York Rangers. On Saturday, the team from Manhattan manhandled the Vancouver Canucks.

This blog is going to be a number of random...

This Week in Flyers History: Week ending November 16

It was one of the most emotional games in Flyers history, regular season or playoffs. Just days after the tragic loss of their All-Star goalie, Pelle Lindbergh in a car accident, the Flyers had to somehow summon their strength and push forward.

Dallas Eakins’ job saved by Oilers winning streak

The Edmonton Oilers were able to string together three consecutive wins over the past week and it couldn’t have come at a better time. After starting the year 0-4-1, the Oilers were floundering and barely looked competitive. The blame, as always, fell on the head coach and Dallas Eakins’ job appeared to be in serious jeopardy.

The “new” ‘Hockey Night in Canada’: much of the same, for better and worse

The “reinventing” of Hockey Night in Canada will be a process in constant evolution that may not be settled for many months or even years. We will surely see new personnel, new technology, new graphics and who knows, maybe they’ll build another crazy future world of a new studio. The show is a ship at sea that hasn’t yet found land.

The yearly NHL Awards show is somewhere between the Golden Globes and the Dundies on the yearly awards circuit.  It’s hard to put on a sports awards show as a television event without a supreme level of awkwardness… unless you pour millions of dollars into it and make it all about celebrity, like ESPN has done to the ESPYs.  Athletes and awards shows just don’t mix, which...
