Evaluating players at least gives Edmonton Oilers fans something to do

Here are some suggested things to do at Edmonton Oilers home games as the NHL season slowly expires. For starters, forget fussing over wins and losses.

The wild scene during the Florida Panthers' 3-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs has proven costly.

Is Predators 'grinding schedule' taking toll?

One of the explanations for the Predators looking a little sluggish and slow in some recent games could be a simple one: tired legs. The Predators' 3-1 loss Tuesday to New Jersey was the team's 20th game in 36 days since the NHL All-Star break. Only one other team, Florida, has played 20 in 36 since the break, and only two teams, Washington and the New York Islanders, have even...

Neal might have a future with Wolves

One of the last players to leave the locker room after the Wolves lost to the Clippers Monday was guard Gary Neal. He was moving slowly for a reason.
