30th
Apr. × ’12

Yo! This summer I’m looking for a few guest writers. Anyone launching a new hockey blog or with a current one is welcome. Ideally I’m looking for a three to four posts per person between June and September. Any level of hockey, in North America, Europe, or elsewhere. English only, sorry I’d hate to have […]

2 NHL Truths

30th
Apr. × ’12

Truth #1 Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had no business being in the NHL this season. As everyone with a functioning frontal lobe knew he had the skill to be in the NHL, but not the body. His two separate injuries are ample proof of this. Twenty games missed, and now a  shoulder that is likely to become […]

Guest Post: Bruins fan revels in Caps’ affiliate playoff loss

29th
Apr. × ’12

Not that I’m a bitter Bruins fan but I’d like to thank the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins for a memorable night of hockey Saturday that came at the expense of the Washington Capitals. The baby Pens defeated Washington’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Hershey Bears, in a thrilling series-clinching game 5 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Wikes-Barre, […]

Break out the tissues, get ready for a good cry, its time for another Atlantic Division love fest. The kindest crew in the Quaker State are getting ready to embrace their diamond in the rough bosom buddies the New Jersey Devils. To get here both teams had to step over the bodies of foes they […]

Series Preview: #2 St Louis Blues vs #8 LA Kings

28th
Apr. × ’12

This is going to be a series that comes down to two major elements. The first is going to be the harder to gauge, and that’s coaching. On one side you have the seeming Jack Adams Award winner behind the Blues bench, on the other you have the guy who took an undermanned often dinged […]

Series Preview: #1 New York Rangers vs. #7 Washington Capitals

28th
Apr. × ’12

Two old familiar foes square off for a slot in the eastern conference finals, and bragging rights. Never forget the bragging rights. The two teams are pretty similar, both have coaches with a rather pugnacious and bellicose attitude. Both have top forwards who were next to invisible in the first round, both have failed to […]

Series Preview: #3 Phoenix Coyotes vs. #4 Nashville Predators

Goaltending wins championships.  Both teams have championship worthy goaltenders this season. The difference will come from the rosters between the masked men in this matchup. The two teams are quite similar. Both are built from the back out with the blueline and net minders making up the highest profile players. No one should expect this […]

Racist Bruins Fans?

26th
Apr. × ’12

    I’m a little confused. None of these fans picked out of the pictures I took at camp last fall, and at the parade in about 45 seconds seem harried or worried. I’ve been going to Bruins games since before Roltson’s first stop in the Hub and never encountered a single problem. Not at […]
