Kings Have Yet To Find A Way To Win

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail, So now, here we are in 2013 and, two games in, it has been a complete reversal of fortune for all the Kings men. All the games that they found a way to win last year, they found a way to lose against the Blues. In the opener, a turnover by Quick led to a shorthanded unassisted goal by the Blues’ Alex Steen and 1-0 series lead...

Who Will Replace DeKeyser?

from Chuck Pleiness of Red Wings Front, Babcock said before the playoffs that signing DeKeyser was the reason the Wings reached the playoffs for a 22nd consecutive season. “He’s a kid, don’t get me wrong, but he’s a good player, so that’s a big blow for our team,” Babcock said. “But there are other guys that have been working hard, Lash, Colaiacovo have been...

Video- Dustin Brown On The Hunt

Lots of buzz in Canada about the Gryba hit, but little on Dustin Brown's targeting of Jaden Schwartz. The intent on that play looked brutal. — Jason Kay (@JKTHN) May 3, 2013

Dominating Mule

from Craig Custance of ESPN (paid subscription), On his second goal, he took a pass from Zetterberg behind Hiller and drove to the net untouched, stuffing it past the Ducks goalie. Franzen beat a stationary Winnik to the front of the net, proving how dangerous he can be in that spot if Ducks defenders don't put a body on him. And that's the challenge moving forward...

Discussing Bob Cole

from Sean Fitz-Gerald of the National Post, On some nights, it seems to slice into the very fabric of the country. Canadians, watching the same broadcast, hear two very different voices. Some hear a man lost, wandering two steps behind the play, in a game that has passed him by. Others evangelize the voice of a legend. And now, in the age of Twitter, it is possible to watch...

LA Kings Looking For Their Offense

from Helene Elliott of the LA Times, Quick was good enough. He stopped 23 shots and, before Jackman's effort, yielded only a goal that caromed off Patrik Berglund's foot at 3:44 of the third period. The Kings' offense, though, wasn't nearly adequate. The Kings have scored two goals on Brian Elliott in two games: one after Quick was pulled for an extra skater...

Rangers Not Good Enough Against The Caps

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, The Rangers are all wearing t-shirts with the message “Stay Positive” across their chests, and for the most part that’s what they were following last night’s 3-1 defeat to the Capitals in Game 1 of the first-round series. There was much talk about having done “a lot of good things,” and that wasn’t entirely off-base regarding...

Ducks/Wings Series Could Be Classic

from Craig Custance of ESPN, Even as Detroit opened a three-goal lead, Boudreau and the Ducks kept pushing. “They were always talking about, Get one and we can get two,” Boudreau said. “Get one and we can get two.” By the time Bobby Ryan tied the game late in the third period, it felt like an inevitability. The push from the Ducks got stronger and stronger as...

Red Wings-Ducks quick take: Nyquist, Wings nearly blow it, blow over Ducks

I'm just gonna get this out here and write a quick take in a minute: the Red Wings absolutely blew a 3-goal lead and played awful hockey during the latter half of the 3rd period in Anaheim, from Jimmy Howard on out, but the Wings got a decisive power play going into OT and scored their 3rd early period PPG, with Gustav Nyquist scoring the gamer in a 5-4 OT win. Detroit goes...

Habs down 1-0, Eller out

Not the start the Habs wanted. 50 shots and nothing to show for it. 1-0 Ottawa. Terrible hit on Lars Eller, who is in hospital with a concussion, facial fractures, and is staying there overnight. It seems unlikely he'll be back in this series, given how quickly the games are being played. Look for Jeff Halpern to slot in tomorrow night, and Brandon Prust to move up with Gallagher...

Video- Eric Gryba Hit On Lars Eller Tonight

Not a good scene on the ice, hope Eller will be ok. Yes a terrible pass by Raphael Diaz, but when are players going to learn to take a player out of the play, not the game. Gryba received 5 for interference, a 10 and game misconduct.

No Matter How Soft And Innocent Those Blue Eyes May Be? Don’t Trust Them or Her

Bullet Bob Seger was a young man in the early 70's. He, because he felt change would do him good, headed west.  It was there that his world crumbled when he put a lot of stock into some surface emotions.  Yes, I know.  Young, dumb and full of...enthusiasm.  She swindled him though.  She led him on and then crushed his soul. But don't blame her. Oh no.   Continue...
