Jon Cooper Starts The Mind Games

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet, After pointing out that pundits have counted his group out all season long, he noted that Montreal has a recent history of squandering leads in the playoffs. "We got home ice and didn’t deliver the way clearly we wanted to," Cooper said after Sunday’s morning skate at the Bell Centre. "So now you look in the room at those...

12 Hours Out Of Mackinaw City, I Stopped To Have Myself A Bru-In

None of you have been able to really enjoy an Easter in close to 25 years.  Blame the Red Wings for that.  While fans of other teams have stress-free holidays every other year or so?   Continue reading "12 Hours Out Of Mackinaw City, I Stopped To Have Myself A Bru-In"

The Chicago Blackhawks Are Not Playing Their Game

from Mike Brophy of CBC, The Blackhawks find themselves trailing their first round series with the St. Louis Blues 2-0, having blown two games they should have won. Chicago led 3-2 in Game 1, but gave up a goal to Jaden Schwartz of the Blues at 18:24 of the third period and lost when Alex Steen scored after just 26 seconds of overtime. Chicago's response? They came...

Open Post- Puck Drops On Four Games Today

How about 4 games today, basically 12 1/2 hours of hockey with a nice break around dinner time in the eastern time zone. Most of you would probably agree with me, the playoff games have been great and we have only started. Sit back, enjoy and may the best teams win today.

This Is Not A GDT Post

With the puck dropping just after 3:00pm ET and since not much has changed in the stats department since game one, I have decidded there will be no game day post.  Plus it is Easter and I am lazy today. Instead... Continue reading "This Is Not A GDT Post"

Wake Up Philly

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Craig Berube says his team isn't tired. The Flyers' third-period play recently suggests otherwise. The long grind that had them play the final 17 regular-season games - many against elite teams - over the last 30 days seems to have caught up with the Flyers. They have been flat and outskated in most third periods lately...

Chicago/St. Louis Series Only To Get Nastier

The Boston Bruins Need To Play Their Game

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, The Bruins, their mind-set fixed that Detroit’s speed was too much to handle, spent the night like a bunch of flat-footed window shoppers, looking longingly through the glass, ready to purchase, the game never quite in their hands. The few times they appeared set to buy, they were denied entry to the store or they were essentially...

Time For A New Draft

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Sabres. Panthers. Oilers. Islanders. Flames, Canes. Jets. The Welfare Class of an NHL whose administration promised the cap would mean anyone could win. Well not quite, no more so than the introduction of the cap meant ticket prices would become more affordable. By the way, these teams are living proof bottoming out is not its own...

Bylsma Makes A Coaching Error

from Joe Starkey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, The Blue Jackets had no business getting back in this game. Bylsma left the screen door open. Columbus had been dangerous on the penalty kill all season and had scored a short-handed goal in Game 1. There was no reason to take a chance. Sure enough, Malkin fumbled a puck at the right point. He escaped unscathed. He then...

Red Wings-Bruins Game 2 set-up, part 2: Wings can’t let B’s protestations interfere with their game

I already posted one entry regarding today's game between the Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings (3 PM EDT on NBC, TSN and 97.1 FM), but there was so much "stuff" that popped up between "the evening" and "overnight" that I needed to pen a new entry. This one is a lot less about the comings and goings and a lot more about playing up a narrative....

Red Wings prospect news: Mantha, Val-d’Or prevail; Griffins will open playoffs against Abbotsford

Saturday delivered mixed results for the Red Wings' prospects, including a difficult journey ahead (literally) for the Grand Rapids Griffins. In playoff hockey, in the QMJHL, Anthony Mantha had an assist as his Val-d'Or Foreurs defeated the Halifax Mooseheads 4-2, taking a 2-games-to-none lead in the QMJHL semifinal. Mantha now has 11 goals, 7 assists and 18 points in...

So the Blue Jackets won a playoff game…

"For serious," Columbus defeated Pittsburgh 4-3 in double overtime, tying the teams' first-round series at one--and the Blue Jackets rallied from a 3-1 deficit en route to their first playoff win: Matt Calvert had 2 goals, David Savard had 2 assists, as Don Cherry pointed out, Brandon Dubinsky had 9 shots and 8 hits, and both goaltenders were stellar--Marc...

Red Wings early overnight report and Wings-Bruins Game 2 set-up: skate, evade, avoid B’s dumb-down

Moving on from the Milan Lucic silliness, Danny DeKeyser's reaction and Saturday's practice news, the vast majority of the Red Wings and Bruins' beat writers have already filed stories in advance of tomorrow's Game 2 (3 PM EDT on NBC, TSN and 97.1 FM), so... Oh hell with it, we're not quite done with the Loosick stuff yet (I was waiting to hear Don Cherry defend...

A difference of opinion: did the Red Wings offer Tatar and Nyquist for Iginla? I don’t buy it.

The Vancouver Province's Ed Willes insisted that the Red Wings were offering up two of Tomas Tatar, Gustav Nyquist and I believe either Riley Sheahan or Brendan Smith in a package for Alex Edler last summer (which supposedly included a 1st round pick and a "fourth piece" that the Wings wouldn't bite upon)--which seems a little outlandish, but may very well be what...

Don Cherry dekes, dangles and sprints past spears on Coach’s Corner

The CBC's Don Cherry had a very selective memory on Saturday evening. He lamented Brandon Dubinsky's ability to attack Sidney Crosby at will in Game 1 of the Penguins-Blue Jackets series, he mocked Duncan Keith for jabbing at the Blues' stars--suggesting that Keith "got Seabrook pumped up" (before sidestepping that topic)--he reviewed the Blues' game-winning...

Umberger Returns, Blue Jackets Look For Franchises First Playoff Win

The latest from Rick Gethin at Fox Sports Ohio regarding the Columbus Blue Jackets: Ahead of Game 2, RJ Umberger is making his return to the lineup after being out with injury. Although he has been to the playoffs before, this is a big game for him. He's a Pittsburgh native that calls Columbus home now. Columbus head coach Todd Richards was asked what he expects from...
