The Habs are on top of the NHL right now 20 games into their season. Their record stands at 14-5-1 and look to be the team to beat in the East right now.2. Pittsburgh Penguins. The Pens have just three regulation...

Hey, the more the merrier. I don't look at it as gloom and doom. After college hockey blew up a few summers ago with re-alignment many people were predicting that gloom and doom...

Matt Fraser's Disallowed Goal

There's varying opinions on whether this goal should have counted or not. The Refs thought it was incidental contact. You be the ref, do you think the goal should have counted? I think it's should have counted, but I am Boston Bruins fan. Nevermind - ruled incidental contact. No penalty, but no goal, either. #stlblues #OurBlues— St. Louis Blues (@StLouisBlues) November 19, 2014GIF...

Keith Ballard Hip Check on Adam Pardy

Nice hip check by Minnesota Wild defenseman Keith Ballard on Adam Pardy. Big Buff and Pardy take exception and the Wild go on the power play. Of course the Wild's powerless play failed. Ballard at least attempted hip check on Adam Pardy, and Big Buff and Pardy retaliate— Michael Russo (@Russostrib) November 16, 2014

Blast from the Past: Mike Zoller (Miam) Ice hockey on brink of dynasty

Since this is Miami versus UND week, I thought I would dust this little nugget off. I think we need to light things up a bit here. This was written by Mike Zoller back in October of 2007. At the same time, however, the term dynasty is thrown around too loosely and even pre-maturely. While some called the University of Southern California’s football team a dynasty, I say they were...

Phil Kessel's Goal Shouldn't Have Counted

This is one of the reasons that the NHL needs a coaches challenge, this should be a tie game, still. Check out this video, Phil Kessel's goal shouldn't have counted. The puck hits a player on the bench and comes back into play. It will be interesting to see if the NHL GM's finally decide to have a coaches challenge. Thoughts?
