from Matt Kalman of The Bruins Blog, The NHL didn’t hand down any discipline to Ottawa forward Kyle Turris for his hit to the head of Boston’s Joe Corvo Saturday night.
Fortunately for Corvo, he gets a chance at doling out his own discipline just three nights later.
Corvo today after practice at Ristuccia Arena voiced his displeasure with the hit and Turris’ explanation that...

via Bob McKenzie tweet, RDS says Andrei Kostitysn is heading to NSH. I am hearing the same thing. Pending the trade call.
via Lindsay Applebaum of Capitals Insider, The Capitals have placed top center Nicklas Backstrom on the long term injured list, freeing up some room under the salary cap as today’s 3 p.m. trading deadline approaches.
The move would give General Manager George McPhee about $7.6 million to work with, but only if Backstrom is out for the rest of the season. Given that the 24-year...
Sportsnet is streaming right now and I am going to assume right through the trade deadline and then some.
Watch it below…
I’ve been watching it for a few minutes and the stream seems to be stopping, starting, etc., hopefully they will get it figured out soon.

from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, After parting with goaltender Ben Bishop on Sunday, the budget-conscious Blues aren’t expected to make any significant moves before today’s NHL trading deadline, but it remains possible that general manager Doug Armstrong could make dollar-for-dollar deals to bolster the injury-riddled roster.
“I have a clear understanding...
Any special plans for the day or what are your feelings on the amount of trades we will see before 3:00pm ET?
TV coverage in the USA begins at 8:00am on the NHL Network when they pick up the TSN programming.
In Canada, coverage started two weeks ago and they are now breaking down Ottawa’s chances of getting the 3rd pick of the 2016 Entry Draft.
George Malik and I will be updating...
There’s no doubt the Jeff Carter trade makes the Los Angeles Kings a better hockey team. Trading for one of the most prolific goal-scorers over the last four seasons is a sure-fire way to upgrade your roster. The question is, does the trade help the Kings become a Stanley Cup contender?
Let’s start with the facts.
To describe the Los Angeles offense as anemic is an understatement...
Good morning Kenny. We’re not in the business of making demands here at A2Y. Yes we have expectations, but none of us would “demand” you do anything other than commit your very soul to keeping our team competitive, every year, for the Cup that belongs to us.
Now, that doesn’t mean we don’t have wishes. And when I say “we”, I mean “I”. Clarifying that for you...
As the Globe and Mail’s Eric Duhatschek suggests, the dearth of substantiated trade talk around this year’s trade deadline, which will hit at 3 PM EST today, may very well suggest that in this year of supercharged “parity” in the standings and uncertainty regarding the CBA to come, we’re more likely to actually witness 20-30 deals go down which could change the fortunes...
After what seemed like a ten minute review, the situation room in Toronto reversed the on-ice decision of no goal and awarded Andrew Cogliano the goal.
Todd McLellan had to leave the game for treatment after a Wild stick hit him in the head when a Sharks player not to be named here pushed that Wild player into the bench. Please let McLellan be okay, not least of all because the Sharks need him.
“Man is harder than iron, stronger than stone and more fragile than a rose.” -Turkish proverb
Then the Sharks lost, 4-3. That stung...
We all know Twitter delivers hockey news to the masses in a very quick and efficient manner.
Therefore, I am releasing the folks I follow closely on Twitter for the trade deadline period.

This post will also remain sticky (top of...
What else is new - the Canadiens blew a lead Sunday night, losing to the Florida Panthers. What might be new? Some players, tomorrow, if the deals are there.
I won’t bother going over the game - let’s face it, the Habs season is over - what’s more interesting is what might happen between tonight and tomorrow at 3.
So, what signs were there Sunday? Well, Mathieu Darche has...
from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, Just talked with Boston GM Peter Chiarelli as he left his Causeway St. office for the day, and while acknowledging the trade market is slow, he remains cautiously optimistic that he can add a roster player or two prior to the NHL’s trade deadline at 3 p.m. (ET) Monday.
His targets: a forward who can play on one of coach Claude Julien’s...
via NHL.com, The San Jose Sharks received a scare early in the second period against Minnesota on Sunday, when coach Todd McLellan collapsed behind the bench after being struck in the head by a stick.
Officials blew play dead at 17:45, seconds after Minnesota’s Nick Schultz tied the game 2-2 at the Xcel Energy Center. In-game cameras missed the incident, but Sharks players surrounded...
