New Year Musings Around The San Jose Sharks

After a rare exhibition of futility, the San Jose Sharks have managed to put together a nice 6-game winning streak - restoring faith and hope that all will be well in Sharkland.  As the year winds down I’ve decided to document a few random thoughts I’ve had rattling around my head for a while (I [...]

It’s A Christmas Miracle…Attendance Skyrockets For Phoenix Coyotes

After months of meager turnout around 5000 to 8000 fans, it looks like things are turning around for the Coyotes. Saturday night’s game against the LA Kings brought in 16,000, the highest since the home opener in October. Tuesday’s game against the Vancouver Canucks brought in over 13,000. The guys won both games…coincidence? I think [...]

Bitten By The Desert Dogs

Prior to the start of this game both teams new that earning 2 points was imperative. For the Phoenix Coyotes winning this game meant more than gaining points, a win for the Coyotes would have set a franchise record for the most wins at home. Vancouver made sure that achieving this record would be very [...]

Caps Make Some Moves

It’s been a while since I last updated this blog and for that I apologise and offer up an excuse of a lack of time. But recent news has forced me to make time for this.
The Washington Capitals today announced a trade with the Columbus Blue Jackets that sees the Caps acquire Jason Chimera in [...]

Pittsburgh Penguins: Mike Rupp Goal Scorer?

So with the all of the Thanksgiving festivities behind me, it is time to get back on the wire here at penaltykill. The Pittsburgh Penguins currently stand at 4th place in the Eastern Conference with 53 points. They have played 39 games and have a 26-12-1 record. With the exception of Mark Eaton and Jordan [...]

Anaheim Ducks – 2009 Is Almost Done

I have been extremely remiss in my posting and I am sorry for that. Finals, holidays and wireless cards deciding to hit the skids never make for conducive blogging. The last game I posted about was waaaay back on December 8, so I need to catch up. 7 games total: 6 away and 1 at [...]

“Santa Baby” As Sung By A Phoenix Coyote Fan

Santa baby..slip some new owners under the tree, for me
Been an awfully good fan
Santa baby, and hurry to the arena tonight
Santa baby, let’s top the Western conference too,
whoo hoo
Santa baby, and hurry to the arena tonight
Think of all the fun we might miss,
If the Coyotes were to get dissed
Playoff games for me and for you..
Bee [...]

Detroit Red Wings: Cutting To The Chase

Overall 18-13-5 | Home 11-6-2 | Road 7-7-3
This is a pretty frustrating set of stats. The Wings can’t really seem to string more than a couple of wins together before capitulating. Zetterberg’s injury is just another problem to add to the list of growing concerns. Helm’s return is a welcome snippet of good news, but [...]

Minnesota Wild: In The Hunt!

Believe it or not, the Wild are literally two wins from 8th place in the West. Pretty dang impressive. 8-2 in the last ten and just pretty solid all around. Also, remember that Sykora has been limited and Bouchard and Burns have been out with concussions. With those three back in [...]

Phoenix Coyotes Have Been “Mis-managed”

Well no duh chet…This is a direct quote from Anthony LeBlanc during an intermission interview with Todd Walsh Wednesday night. Anthony LeBlanc is the CEO of Ice Edge Holdings, the group who have signed the letter of intent to buy the Coyotes from the NHL. The group which is comprised mostly of Canadian businessmen has [...]
