#Elimin8ted: Rangers fans let Ovie have it after guarantee goes up in smoke

In looking back, Alexander Ovechkin's Game 7 guarantee was doomed to backfire. After all, he plays in Washington, where a politician's promise is about as air tight as the Edmonton Oilers defense. And he was guaranteeing a win in New York, where Mark Messier became "The Messiah" after delivering on his own guarantee (then going on to deliver a Stanley Cup in 1994) and Joe Namath...

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...

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. Could the Oilers get lucky facing a road-weary team on the second night of a back-to-back? Perhaps. I mean, the Oilers can't lose every single game, no matter how awful the roster is.

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. They had to go on, emotionally numb as they were and find their way without their star in net. Awaiting them on this night was none other...

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.

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.
