Mike Green Feeling Great After 2 Years Of Physical And State Of Mind Health Issues

from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider, Ever since Mike Green returned to the Capitals’ lineup in mid-February following sports hernia surgery, he’s fielded questions about when he would return to his previous form. But that ignores the reality that the defenseman’s game has changed, partly in his natural evolution as a player but also because of Coach Dale Hunter’s system...

About last night…

So I spent two days running to and from home to the hospital and back again, carrying dogs and dispensing pills to one of those dogs and doing other stuff people can’t do when they’re having a baby, and wondering and worrying and asking wrong questions to doctors and then deciding I should stop speaking before I freak my brother and his wife out in their time of happy panic. ...

PIT @ PHI – ECQF G3 - (Orange) Crush Them

Before the series began, you likely would have been hard pressed to find anyone who wouldn’t have been satisfied with splitting the first two games in Pittsburgh. But after taking a 2-0 lead in this round 1 matchup in a rather dominating fashion, the Flyers are taking advantage of a slow start by the Phillies to become the toast of the town, christening the new Xfinitiy Live Center...

Problems With Panther Ticket Demand

If there was any doubt that NHL hockey in South Florida is on shaky financial ground, I found this on stubhub last night. That’s right $18 US can get you into a Stanley Cup playoff game.  Granted it is poor seats but it is a ridiculously low amount compared to any established NHL market.

Last Second Tie Forces OT Win!

This series certainly has shown a flair for the dramatic. If tying the game with 15 seconds left and an empty net wasn’t exciting enough in Game 1, the Hawks repeated the feat, with 5 seconds left in Game 2!  Seabrook played a part in both, scoring and then assisting, respectively. That Overtime win in the first meeting, for Phoenix, really looms larger now. Had the Hawks won...

The Leafs May Be Looking For A Goalie Coach

from Damien Cox of The Spin, Don’t listen to the rumours that Brian Burke, subjected to an avalanche of public scorn in recent weeks, is planning to take a six-month leave to get his personal and professional house in order while leaving right hand man Dave Nonis in charge. “I’ve never considered it and ownership has not asked me about it,” Burke said last week. “Quit...

4 Games Today, Paced Nicely Throughout The Day And Night

Not sure about you, but trying to follow more than two games at a time is sometimes like juggling knives. Glad to see only one game at a time today, makes it much easier on an already fried brain.

Kings Put More Pressure On The Canucks

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail, Just in case the Vancouver Canucks needed any reminding about which team was dealing with the most pressure in their opening-round playoff series against the Los Angeles Kings, defenceman Drew Doughty helpfully pointed it out early Saturday afternoon. “They’ve got a ton of pressure,” said Doughty, “especially being in a market...

Department Of Player Safety Will Be Working OT Too

via NHL.com, Three players will have hearings with the NHL Department of Player safety following their actions in Saturday’s playoff games. New York Rangers forward Carl Hagelin and Ottawa Senators defenseman Matt Carkner will each have hearings Sunday afternoon. Carkner received a five-minute major for fighting, a two-minute minor for instigating and a game misconduct at 2:15...

We’ll Watch The White Doves Go, Bubba. That’s What You See In Houses of the Holy.

It’s a 5-game series now, Bubba.  Three of those games will be at Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena.  It’s dirty and the stairs are sticky.  Working people go there and they drink cheap beer sold expensively. You have Vince Gill with a stupid t-shirt, we have a statue of the greatest hockey player in history.  You have two skanks taking stupid pictures pretending to be Shea Weber...

Sunday Morning Hockey Talk

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,* Noticeable by their absence in these playoffs are referees Don Vanmassenhoven, who’s 51 and has officiated 1,147 regular-season games and 101 playoff games, and Dave Jackson, 47, who has 1,194 league games and 66 playoff games on his resume. They didn’t get post-season work last year, either, usually a tip-off that their days as refs...

GDT - WC Quarterfinals, Game 3: Red Wings (1-1) host Predators (1-1)  (12:00)

DET (1-1) return to the Joe with home-ice advantage in a strange series.  During the regular season, DET were the leagues best team at 5-5 play, and special teams were the Wing’s achille’s heel:  16.1 PP% (22), 81.8 PK% (18).  Yet, in this series, DET have 2 PP goals (game 1), and all of NSH’s scoring has been at even strength (0-12 on the PP).  DET have goals by Homer...

The Bettman/Crosby Relationship

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, This probably is just the echo of the Child of the ’60s conspiracy-theorist rattling inside my brain, but is it wrong to wonder whether Gary Bettman’s campaign on behalf of Sidney Crosby amplified by a tribute to his “greatness” on Monday is part of an effort to co-opt No. 87 when the collective bargaining talks commence in earnest following...

Red Wings-Predators Game 3 set-up: Weather, home ice advantage and poking the Mule

Thanks to the NHL’s desire for afternoon matinee playoff match-ups, the Detroit Red wings will hope to build upon their sloppy but tenacious 3-2 victory over Nashville on Thursday at a bizarre time—the game starts at 12 PM EDT (NBC—WDIV’s pre-game begins at 11:30 AM EDT/CBC/97.1 FM) and in less-than-ideal circumstances in terms of today’s ice surface, because Al Sobotka...

Hawks head back to Chicago tied with the Coyotes

The Phoenix Coyotes couldn’t pull away from the Chicago Blackhawks on a 5-minute major penalty to Andrew Shaw (who, perhaps accidentally, elbowed Coyotes goalie Mike Smith in the face), and after tying up the game late, Bryan Bickell ensured that the Hawks would head home from Glendale with a split:

Should Have Been Different

That can be said when it comes to tonight’s New York Rangers’ 3-2 overtime loss to the Ottawa Senators in Game 2 at Madison Square Garden tonight. After tying the game on a Nick Foligno goal with just over five minutes to go in the hockey game, the Senators went onto to score just over a minute into overtime on a goal by Chris Neil to tie the series 1-1. Given that the Rangers...
