January Stars and Stumbles

31st
Jan. × ’11

Another pretty spiffy month for the Bruins.  True, they were shutout once, and lost two games in a shootout, but they won nine of fourteen, maintained their position at the top of the division. Of the losses, two came to playoff teams. The unfamiliar Los Angeles Kings and the Penguins who the Bruins still have […]

All Star Weekend Report

31st
Jan. × ’11

Like most legitimate sports fans, All Star events at most inspire tepid interest and usually only to give me something to focus my scorn on while waiting for real games to be played again.  When the player draft was announced my lack of whelm for even the skills completion was dulled seriously.  Add in several […]

Rookies Vs Ilya Kovalchuck: The Calder Watch

27th
Jan. × ’11

It’s time once again for a look at how the best and most interesting of the NHL’s rookies match up against the 2,971,249,619.63 Ruble man. Starting at the backend with the goalies, the once clear leader in this position has come back to the pack a little, but bursting onto the scene is James Reimer […]

If I Told You in September…

24th
Jan. × ’11

This is a feature that will run about every two weeks with improbable stats and situations in the National Hockey League. If I told you in September… in All Star week, that Evgani Malkin would not only be not in the top ten league scorers, or on the All Star team, but behind Patrice Bergeron, […]

Bruins Vs Avs, and themselves.

22nd
Jan. × ’11

Today the Boston Bruins faceoff with the Avalanche, in Denver.  Not only do they face a high powered Colorado team that is currently fourth in the NHL in goals for, they have to face their traditionally sloppy afternoon play. As a team they have been poor to awful in day games for years. Even the […]

Krejci vs Sobotka, was the wrong man traded?

20th
Jan. × ’11

In the aftermath of the debacle that was the end of the playoffs for the Boston Bruins, lost amid the hype of the Wideman for Campbell and Horton trade, and essentially nonexistent when compared to the talk of drafting Taylor Hall or Tyler Seguin, or maybe both, was the trade of Vladimir Sobotka to the […]

A fine line or a swine line.

19th
Jan. × ’11

Of the many things I find absolutely fascinating about hockey is the making and breaking of lines. Players are tossed together by injures and demotions, cold streaks and red hot scoring streaks. Sometimes lines are broken up and shuffled to get better matchups against a given opponent, some times a player or player will simply […]

Potential Matt Moulson trade

18th
Jan. × ’11

While I don’t particularly see Moulson as a likely Bruins acquisition there are several reasons he might be a good fit. Chief among them are that he’s a natural left wing. Currently the only one of those we have is Milan Lucic. Michael Ryder, Mark Recchi, Blake Wheeler, Nathan Horton, and Shawn Thornton are all […]
