Flyers’ Claude Giroux Bites Opponents Jersey For No Reason

Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux bit Florida Panthers defenseman Erik Gudbranson’s jersey on the way to a face off on Thursday night, in one of the more bizarre interactions I’ve ever seen in a hockey game. I’m not sure why Giroux did it, maybe he just wanted a snack. It obviously wasn’t a malicious bite. […] The post Flyers’ Claude Giroux Bites Opponents Jersey...

Blue Jackets bring the boom but fall short in overtime

Columbus, Ohio - The game ended :42 seconds into the overtime frame and left the Blue Jackets feeling as if they had left points on the table.

Postgame Perspective: Tougher defenses lie ahead for Flyers

The Flyers started to buzz in the offensive zone as overtime pressed on. The second point was there for the taking and they could taste it. Roberto Luongo had other ideas. Luongo stood tall in overtime and in the shootout as the Flyers dropped the final home game of 2014 and of a four-game homestand, 2-1, to the Florida Panthers on Thursday night. Just as it was on a 1-2-2 road...

Aftermath: 12/18/14 vs Capitals

The Jackets’ win streak is over at eight games, after yet another overtime game finally went the wrong way on the scoreboard. Columbus truthfully didn’t deserve to be in this game: they played a very spirited second period, but wrapped it in a turd sandwich of a first and third. Though they managed to somehow lead the game twice in the third period, they also managed to blow...

Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 5-4 OT loss to the Capitals

One: The Blue Jackets did match the physicality, nor the aggressiveness of the Capitals forecheck in the first period. It almost seemed as if they were waiting for the refs to blow the whistle for a call, rather than play their game. They had trouble getting out of their own zone and sustaining any meaningful pressure in the Capitals end. Not one of their better twenty minutes of...
