Pittsburgh Penguins First Half Review and Second Half Preview

By Jim Meinecke It has certainly been a roller coaster ride for the Pittsburgh Penguins and their fans so far this season.

Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 75

After watching last night’s skill competition, it seems that, if given the proper amount of time, Jaroslav Halak can indeed handle the puck. Or at least shoot it. Then again, maybe he tampered with the pucks. Hey, can I get a PSI reading on the pucks Halak used? We’re a quarter through our countdown, folks and with 75 days until the final regular season home game at the Nassau...

Analyzing Boston Bruins’ 2014-15 Season At NHL All-Star Break

The Boston Bruins’ 2014-15 campaign has been a bit of a roller coaster. The team has just three win streaks of three-plus games, four skids of three-plus games and a 12-11-2 record following a win. Injuries to key forwards and four of their top-six defensemen have contributed to the Bruins’ inconsistency, but the last month of results suggests that Boston is headed in the right...

Voracek, like linemate Giroux, growing into superstar

The Flyers pick of Claude Giroux with the 22nd overall pick in the 2006 NHL Draft was comical - then GM Bobby Clarke couldn't remember his name. Now it's synonymous with Flyers hockey. From a very early point in the now 27-year-old center's career, you could tell this was a special player and captain material. It started simple enough. Giroux barely played in his first two seasons...

Islanders Prospects Find No Success This Saturday

It had to happen sooner or later because given the number of New York Islanders prospects and the many games that make up a season that a night would come along that would make one go “ewwww”. There is, however a silver lining in all of this and that is that it took more than half a season for the Islander prospects to have one of these bad nights. Robbie Russo (2011 fourth rd...
