Jets Waive Goaltender Peter Budaj One Day After Trading For Him

The Winnipeg Jets are either confused or sneakily strategic. A day after making a trade with the Montreal Canadiens to acquire goaltender Peter Budaj, they placed him on waivers. When Budaj was acquired, it was thought he would be the backup behind starter Ondrej Pavelec. Michael Hutchinson, the projected backup, struggled throughout the preseason and also only has three games of...

Rangers win both games in Montreal, head to New York with 2-0 series lead

The Canadiens have a goaltending problem, but his name isn’t Dustin Tokarski, Peter Budaj, nor Carey Price, it’s Henrik Lundqvist. The Habs had 41 shots and The King turned aside all but one, which was a flukey bounce in favor of Max Pacioretty. Throw the “Lundqvist sucks in Montreal” narrative out the window; he allowed only three goals in two games at the Bell Centre. It...

NHL Playoff Observations -- Conference Finals Monday

Just a few things that caught my eye: Four and done? I HATE the thought of the Rangers skating their way into the Cup Finals. Spit. Corey Crawford -- the Rodney Dangerfield of goalies. He don't get no respect. Pity. The guy has been dialled in for a few years now and people still doubt him. The Caps caught a break with Alexander Ovechkin's knee. That hit had...

Tokarski gets the start for the Habs (Video vs. Rangers)

Dustin Tokarski will get the start for the Canadiens in game two in the absence of Carey Price. The rationale for Tokarski over Peter Budaj seems to be “he’s a winner”; even though he hasn’t been able to stay on an NHL roster during his five years as a pro. Tokarski has actually faced the Rangers before, way back in 2010 when he was a member of the Tampa Bay Lightning. He...

Do The Rangers Actually Struggle Against Backup Goaltenders?

We have all heard the sarcastic sentiment before, and probably said it ourselves from time to time. Any time a time a backup goaltender is brought out to face the Rangers, it’s “time to make him look like a Vezina Winner.” Or just in general, people question why the Rangers make “every backup look like Dominik Hasek.” With Carey Price stunningly out for the rest of the...
