Even superstars have a hometown. For Mr. Hockey, it’s Saskatoon, a city that showered him with accolades on Gordie Howe Day in 1966. What makes him uniquely special to Saskatonians is… he is theirs.
Hometown Hockey will be in Saskatoon this Sunday.
Here is a trailer...

The Panthers were counting on substantial production from four players who likely would financially benefit from putting up big stats.
Through the first six games, only one of Florida's pending free agents has done so.
Sean Bergenheim is tied for the team lead with two goals. Scottie Upshall has just one assist while Tomas...

Peter Karmanos is known as a budget-conscious owner. If things don't improve dramatically, the likelihood increases Karmanos puts heat on rookie general manager Ron Francis to trim the payroll that current stands at $66.2 million (according to capgeek.com). This seems somewhat obvious given the fact the Hurricanes invested money this season to...

The Cardiff Devils are pleased to confirm the signing of Paul Bissonnette. The NHLer is coming in on a temporary basis while he still looks for opportunities in the NHL, but Devils management are excited to have him for whatever length of time that he will be in Cardiff.
“Paul got in touch with us and explained that he had already...

"This is completely different, separate, isolated from the other ligaments that are more critical in the maneuvering of the knee, so good news is, it's isolated to that ligament," Chiarelli told media during the press conference.
"Bad news is he's out 4-6 weeks. Might be a little earlier than four weeks, but a...

Billionaire William Foley is betting hockey will sell in Sin City .
Foley is in advanced talks with the NHL about bringing the first major league sports franchise to Las Vegas, The Post has learned.
“He’s the real deal,” a source said. “He has deep pockets.
His goal is to bring an NHL team to Vegas starting with the...
Chuck Gormley of CSNWashington answered some questions,
what's the caps odds of finishing top 4 in the metropolitan division? Or is too early to tell?
If the season ended today, the Capitals would be preparing to face the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round of the playoffs while the Pittsburgh Penguins would be polishing their golf clubs for an early summer vacation...
5 on 5 they had Datsyuk and Zetterberg split. Zetterberg with Abdelkader and Nyquist. Datsyuk with Tatar and Helm.

Q: Do you think the Wings will trade Dylan Larkin for Tyler Myers? I hope not. I like Myers' size and right shot but I hope they don't sacrifice the future for him.
A: My guess is they won't part with Larkin in their efforts to acquire Myers. They're committed to building through the draft. They relinquished a young center (Calle Jarnkrok) last season because...

COBURN & MacDONALD OUT
Shortly after the Flyers resumed practice on Friday morning, Flyers GM Ron Hextall announced that defensemen Braydon Coburn and Andrew MacDonald both have lower-body injuries and will be out for approximately four weeks.
Coburn had been skating with the team for a full week, rehabbing from an injury he suffered on...
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Patric Hornqvist is off to such a nice start playing with Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz in Pittsburgh that one almost forgets the player who went the other was as part of the draft day trade. Um, James Neal, anyone? How about a natural hat trick for Neal on Thursday night as his Nashville Predators topped the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 at a buzzing...

It is a long way from Nunavut to Newark.
For Jordin Tootoo, that unusual journey took him from the tundra through junior hockey stardom, a brother’s suicide, struggles with alcoholism and eight seasons as a fast-living fan favorite with the Nashville Predators.
Now Tootoo, the only Inuk to play in the N.H.L., is a little...
from Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun,
Guess how many players had been suspended this season for dirty checks or headshots going into Thursday’s games around the NHL.
The answer: Zero.
That’s right. Zilch, zip, nada.
No players had been forced to watch games for heinous acts on the ice, including in the pre-season. It’s something to be thankful for, seeing...

“We’re not playing the right way. We made a heck of a run here playing the right way, no odd-man rushes, don’t force offense, don’t give the puck away and make hope-for plays offensively. We’ve had a shoot-first mentality that allowed us to be top five in the league in scoring goals. But we don’t want to play the right way. We want to play a different game right...
Here are the highlights from those games...
from Ansar Khan of Mlive,
Flat in the first period and facing an uphill climb all night, the Detroit Red Wings ratcheted up their desperation level in the final minutes of regulation and skated away with two points when it appeared they wouldn't get any.
Those who stayed witnessed a thrilling finish Thursday at Joe Louis Arena.

It’s often said that the mentality of a professional athlete and that of a poker player go hand in hand. That winning mentality. The never say die attitude. The sitting on a team bus for hours and hours making your way across country. It all transfers across from the rink and onto the poker table. No man can prove that more than Greg Mueller.
The 43-year-old has transferred his...
It is still early in the season, but one result which could be very significant is the Arizona Coyotes goaltending. It was expected that Mike Smith would be the successful starter and Devan Dubnyk would be the lesser used backup. Smith had been a successful NHL goalie in the past. He was the number three goalie on the 2014 Canadian Olympic Team. Although he did not play in...
With the Wings losing 3-1 with under 3 minutes to go in the 3rd period, you may be surprised by the final score...
Wings 4 Penguins 3 in OT.
More to follow.
It's been a hectic last three days for me so I am rewarding myself with some time off tonight.
I will be watching the games tonight and nothing else.
Of course if something major does pop up I will post, but other than that, see you tomorrow morning.
After a disappointing loss in Montreal we absolutely have to bounce back with a bona fide 2 point win. The idea here is to take total advantage of playing against a team that played last night. That is something we haven't been able to do.
Tonight we face the Penguins. Malkin is back and the Pens are playing a back to back, after a loss to the Flyers at Home. They will be looking...
