Powerplays Proving Costly

20th
Apr. × ’14

It is a truism in sports; football, and hockey most of all that defense wins championships. We’ve seen it year after year. This year it seems to be adding a wrinkle to itself. Powerplays are costing teams games. Not by failing to produce, but by favoring offense so heavily, they aren’t prepared to play responsibly. […]

The First Five Games: Tampa Bay Lightning

21st
Sep. × ’13

Last season was not the best year in the history of the Tampa Bay Lightning, it was also not the worst. This year for the first time since the 1998-99 season the Lightning will be without Vincent Lecavalier. The former 100 point man, part of the team’s only Cup win, was bought out. Regardless of […]

NHL Entry Draft Day 1

25th
Jun. × ’11

Day one was anything but boring. Trades of players. Trades of picks. Off the board picks. Players sliding. Oh what a night. Of the trades the one that got the least attention but might prove the most impacting was announced early. Troy Brouwer, a big aggressive winger went from the Chicago Blackhawks to the Washington […]

27th
May. × ’11

Game 5 Wrap Bruins – Lightning ECF

23rd
May. × ’11

Like game four, this two was a tale of two games. The opening fifteen minutes of the first fifteen minutes the Bruins looked like they were waiting for someone to put gel on the paddles and shock them back to life. The last five minutes of the opening period were a much closer affair with […]

Game 4 Wrap Bruins – Lightning ECF

21st
May. × ’11

This was clearly a tale of two games. One of twenty minutes. One of forty minutes. It’s not surprising that the team that played better over the larger amount of team was smiling when they left the ice.  The Bruins played twenty masterful minutes to open the game with Patrice Bergeron rolling and raping the […]

The Season that is and could be.

2nd
Dec. × ’10

Two men are standing head and shoulders above the competition this year in the NHL. No, I’m not talking about Zdeno Chara and Tyler Myers who can probably shake hands from opposing bluelines. I’m talking about two players simply dominating their positions and contributing to a revitalization of their team, and division. Both are chasing […]
