The Texas Athletic department hit a home run hiring Smart, here’s why. Shaka Smart’s impact...

Do the Detroit Tigers have a closer dilemma?

With Joakim Soria being four for four on save opportunities, it looks like there will be a closer competition in Detroit. Popular vote would say keep Joakim Soria there because he has had two easy saves against Pittsburgh this past week, compared to Nathan who makes the game more interesting when he comes in. I also say keep in Soria because he has closer experience too (most saves...

The New York Rangers remain consistently inconsistent

After a dominant game one against the Pittsburgh Penguins in which the New York Rangers won 2-1, the Rangers went back to an incredibly lackluster style of play in game two.
