Did Jared Spurgeon dive on this play?

I am going to preface this post with, I am Minnesota Wild fan, but, I think there was some embellishment on this penalty. Steve Sullivan was given a two minute minor for tripping but it looks like Jared Spurgeon was a little light on his skates. I am a Wild fan but that looked like a great Robbie Earl impersonation there. — Eric J. Burton (@goon48) March 1, 2013

Capitals coach fine with Zolnierczyk hit on Mathieu Perreault

In the waning moments of last night’s game, Flyers forward Harry Zolnierczy was given a five minute major and a game misconduct for a hit that he put on Capitals forward Mathieu Perreault. Apparently, Washington Capitals head coach Adam Oates is fine with the hit and didn’t think it was a dirty hit. After reviewing the hit again, I guess, I am fine, with the hit too then. ...

Mike Milbury calls out Ovie

Alex Ovechkin makes $9,538,462 a year to play hockey for the Washington Capitals and I think Mike Milbury is right to call him out on National television, he played like a bag of ass tonight. If I was the owner of the Washington Capitals I would be upset. If I was a team mate of Ovechkin I would be upset.

Harry Zolnierczyk knee on Mathieu Perreault

From the replay, it does look like the Flyers forward Harry Zolnierczyk catches Capitals forward Mathieu Perreault with a "dirty" knee check, just like Taylor Hall hit Cal Clutterbuck. It's a bit of a different angle so it's not as cut an dry in my opinion. If I was a betting man, and I am, I think a suspension is coming for Zolnierczyk I would imagine that ...

Wild's Charlie Coyle not suspended

I didn't watch the play live, I was watching the game between the Islanders and the Bruins, however, I do agree with the call and the NHL is making the right call by not suspending Charlie Coyle. I also think that it's  about time that the Minnesota Wild finally end up on the right side of a call from the NHL Department of Players Safety. BLOG: Wild rookie Charlie...

Taking a second look at the Michael Parks wrap around goal

This is one of my favorite goals in all of hockey and to pull it off, the players have to be talented and they have to be fast on their skates to make it happen. If you watch the play in question, it’s like a football play where the quarterback throws the ball to a set area and the receiver runs to that area and catches the ball, for a touchdown.

Great effort by the guys in Green and White. I will let the video do the talking.  Not a good weekend by the guys wearing the stripes, I thought that Scott Bokal and Brian Thul were absolutely brutal. After further review, it was more Scott Bokal that was the "weak link" in that officiating crew. I made a comment on the UND game chat that after UND went up 3...

DU game 1: Time for RW77 to Ruffle Some Feathers

I love being the most controversial writer for this blog after I was so wrong about the outdoor game (despite MANY MANY MANY members of the media and others saying I was right, but who cares about that) so it is time that I ruffle more feathers. The Game Itself I hate to say it, but the game was entertaining.  I hate to say it because my team lost.  Dave Hakstol said that...
