Of all the current Canadian teams the Vancouver Canucks are the only one to have never won a Stanley Cup. The closest the city of Vancouver has ever come to winning the coveted silverware was during the 1914 –15 seasons, when the then Vancouver Millionaires won The Challenge Cup as it was known at that [...]
The theory behind the empty net is simple and can be very effective. Pull your goalie in a close game to add another attacking member of your team on the ice. I’ve seen it work many a time. During the last two Phoenix Coyotes games? Not so much.
In Monday night’s game against the Kings [...]
So it’s been slow. Breathtakingly, teethgrinding slow. That said, I’m down to stubs and applesauce. But, if they pull it off against Vancouver at home on Thursday, well, 6-9 is almost respectable. New Team, New system. It’s pounded to death. Fact is, 3 short handed goals for any team [...]
Now playing: Music: Live From Dakota - Stereophonics Puck: Sharks at Blues (GREAT game)
Hello Blackhawks fans! I know it’s been a while, but certain personal issues have…what the hell do you care? Sorry, I’ll just get down to brass tacks here.
I’ve gotta say, for the most part, I’m really diggin’ what [...]
For only the fifth time since he was introduced to the NHL in the 05/06 season, the Washington Capitals will play a game without Alex Ovechkin. The game against the New Jersey Devils tonight will be the biggest test for the Caps so far this season, and the difficulties may continue further as the star [...]
You know it’s funny. The Red Wings are setting up a season of being excessively average (5-4-3), but I still can’t imagine us not making the playoffs.
Maybe it’s optimism, maybe it’s because we’re used to being in the top 2-3 teams, or maybe it’s because life without the playoffs is too scary to contemplate.
Our main [...]
The San Jose Sharks have quietly climbed to third in the NHL with 21 points, 1 point behind league leaders Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche. The team has won 7 out of their last 8 games which (impressively) includes 5 wins in 6 road games. The big sigh of relief comes from the [...]
I know this sounds very confusing but Saturday night’s brawlfest between the Phoenix Coyotes and the Anaheim Ducks got me thinking. I am, by nature, a pacifist. A believer in non-violent conflict resolution, make love not war, peace, love and happiness…but something changed the day I became a hockey fan. When two players drop [...]
Since the last blog, the Anaheim Ducks have played only 3 games and won only one! All over Duckland, fans are trying to figure out what in the world is wrong exactly and what the remedy would be. In reading interviews with the team, they are thinking the same things.
Monday the 26th saw [...]
Today, the Pens announce that Evgeni Malkin will be out of the lineup for 2 - 3 weeks due to a shoulder strain. Malkin was trying to play through it, but the team decided that it would be best for him to rest it. Afterall, it’s only October (almost November) and we would much rather [...]
