Video- Brent Seabrook Suspended For Three Games
Here is the video explanation...  

Jon Cooper Starts The Mind Games
from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet, After pointing out that pundits have counted his group out all season long, he noted that Montreal has a recent history of squandering leads in the playoffs. "We got home ice and didn’t deliver the way clearly we wanted to," Cooper said after Sunday’s morning skate at the Bell Centre. "So now you look in the room at those guys and (say) `What do we have to lose?’ Everyone thinks we’re supposed to lose. Now I’m hearing (w...

The Chicago Blackhawks Are Not Playing Their Game
from Mike Brophy of CBC, The Blackhawks find themselves trailing their first round series with the St. Louis Blues 2-0, having blown two games they should have won. Chicago led 3-2 in Game 1, but gave up a goal to Jaden Schwartz of the Blues at 18:24 of the third period and lost when Alex Steen scored after just 26 seconds of overtime. Chicago's response? They came back in Game 2 with one of their most goofy and unglued performances in years. The defending Stanley Cup champs, who...

Open Post- Puck Drops On Four Games Today
How about 4 games today, basically 12 1/2 hours of hockey with a nice break around dinner time in the eastern time zone. Most of you would probably agree with me, the playoff games have been great and we have only started. Sit back, enjoy and may the best teams win today.  

NHL Short Notes
BLUES OVERCOME LATE DEFICIT TO WIN IN OVERTIME (AGAIN) Vladimir Tarasenko scored the tying goal with 6.4 seconds remaining in regulation and Barret Jackman tallied the game-winner at 5:50 of overtime to lead the Blues to their second consecutive come-from-behind victory in extra time. * In Game 1, Jaden Schwartz evened the score with 1:45 remaining in regulation and Alexander Steen potted the winning goal 26 seconds into triple-overtime. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it marks just...

Video- Nathan MacKKinnon With A 4 Point Night
Nathan MacKinnon of the Colorado Avalanche had a four point night last night and now has 7 points (1-6-7) through 2 games of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.  He is tied with teammate Paul Stastny (3-4-7) for the league lead in points. Watch MacKinnon rack up the points last night...  

Wake Up Philly
from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Craig Berube says his team isn't tired. The Flyers' third-period play recently suggests otherwise. The long grind that had them play the final 17 regular-season games - many against elite teams - over the last 30 days seems to have caught up with the Flyers. They have been flat and outskated in most third periods lately. If they don't awaken, they will soon have several months to catch up on their rest. Berube doesn't buy the th...

Chicago/St. Louis Series Only To Get Nastier
At around the :44 second mark...   Shocker. Listen closely during this video and you can hear a Hawks player saying "wakey, wakey" to Backes https://t.co/h6ZwNssD3k #stlblues — Norm Sanders (@NormSanders) April 20, 2014 Toews is confused... from Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times,

The Boston Bruins Need To Play Their Game
from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, The Bruins, their mind-set fixed that Detroit’s speed was too much to handle, spent the night like a bunch of flat-footed window shoppers, looking longingly through the glass, ready to purchase, the game never quite in their hands. The few times they appeared set to buy, they were denied entry to the store or they were essentially told, too bad, the model in the window wasn’t for sale. They landed a total 25 shots on net (one more t...

Time For A New Draft
from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Sabres. Panthers. Oilers. Islanders. Flames, Canes. Jets. The Welfare Class of an NHL whose administration promised the cap would mean anyone could win. Well not quite, no more so than the introduction of the cap meant ticket prices would become more affordable. By the way, these teams are living proof bottoming out is not its own reward. It’s time to revamp the system and get these perennial losers off the dole. In my perfect world, ...

Bylsma Makes A Coaching Error
from Joe Starkey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, The Blue Jackets had no business getting back in this game. Bylsma left the screen door open. Columbus had been dangerous on the penalty kill all season and had scored a short-handed goal in Game 1. There was no reason to take a chance. Sure enough, Malkin fumbled a puck at the right point. He escaped unscathed. He then was victimized at the left point, which led to a 2-on-1 and Matt Calvert's short-handed goal. This was sheer Peng...

Happy Easter On This Glorious Day
He has risen.  Follow in His footsteps and you will be at peace. Enjoy this wondrous day with family and friends.

So the Blue Jackets won a playoff game…
"For serious," Columbus defeated Pittsburgh 4-3 in double overtime, tying the teams' first-round series at one--and the Blue Jackets rallied from a 3-1 deficit en route to their first playoff win: Matt Calvert had 2 goals, David Savard had 2 assists, as Don Cherry pointed out, Brandon Dubinsky had 9 shots and 8 hits, and both goaltenders were stellar--Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 41 of 44 and Sergei Bobrovsky(!) stopped 39 of 42 in his victory.

Don Cherry dekes, dangles and sprints past spears on Coach’s Corner
The CBC's Don Cherry had a very selective memory on Saturday evening. He lamented Brandon Dubinsky's ability to attack Sidney Crosby at will in Game 1 of the Penguins-Blue Jackets series, he mocked Duncan Keith for jabbing at the Blues' stars--suggesting that Keith "got Seabrook pumped up" (before sidestepping that topic)--he reviewed the Blues' game-winning goal against Chicago, lamenting Patrick Kane not blocking a shot, he very briefly praised Pavel Datsyuk's game-winner and suggested that...

Video- Brent Seabrook Hit On David Backes
Brent Seabrook received 5 for charging and a game, David Backes went to the dressing room. The Blues scored on the pp late in the 3rd and the game is now headed to OT.       added 7:11pm, below, watch the CBC version of the hit...

Umberger Returns, Blue Jackets Look For Franchises First Playoff Win
The latest from Rick Gethin at Fox Sports Ohio regarding the Columbus Blue Jackets: Ahead of Game 2, RJ Umberger is making his return to the lineup after being out with injury. Although he has been to the playoffs before, this is a big game for him. He's a Pittsburgh native that calls Columbus home now. Columbus head coach Todd Richards was asked what he expects from Umberger in Game 2. "I'm expecting him to come out, play fast and play big. He's one guy, what he's done well consiste...

Open Post- Three Games Today On The Stanley Cup Playoffs Schedule
Enjoy the games today and if you are traveling over this Easter weekend, please be safe. Fell free to discuss the games in the comment section.  

Milan Lucic Fined $5K For Spearing Incident
NEW YORK (April 19, 2014) – Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic has been fined $5,000 for spearing Detroit Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser during Game 1 of the teams’ First Round Stanley Cup Playoffs series in Boston on Friday, April 18, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today. The incident occurred at 19:55 of the second period. No penalty was assessed on the play. The fine money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund. ...

It Is About Race
from Adam Proteau of The Hockey News, As the Winnipeg Jets’ season wound down, a controversy involving one of their players flared up. Interim coach Paul Maurice made star winger Evander Kane a healthy scratch for a game in Toronto – and just like that, harsh words were hauled out to criticize the 22-year-old: he had an attitude; he was arrogant; he wasn’t a good fit with the Jets; he needed to be traded post-haste. If it sounded familiar, that’s because it was. E...

NHL Short Notes
DATSYUK, HOWARD PROPEL RED WINGS PAST BRUINS Pavel Datsyuk scored the lone goal with 3:01 remaining in regulation and Jimmy Howard (25 saves) recorded his third career playoff shutout to lift the Red Wings to a 1-0 series lead over the Bruins. * According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Datsyuk’s goal was the latest ever (in regulation) by a Red Wings player to snap a scoreless tie in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. It also was the latest such goal in any postseason game since June 1, 2011, w...

Here We Go Again: NHL Playoff Emotions Getting The Best Of Us
Spring is a wonderful time of renewal. The snow melts away (and with record breaking snowfall locally it is much welcomed) the green growth and flowers appear. By green growth of course the playoff rookies that are making a difference and the annual showing of Marc-André Fleury giving Pittsburgh Penguin fans elevated blood pressure.  Emotions are the backbone of the NHL for players, fans and in some cases the non cheering media. Be it the No Words commercial, or the videos of pl...

Coaches Talk
"I'm pretty confident in this group right now. Every time it looked like we were going on a slide, these guys found a way to rebound." -Jon Cooper after the Tampa Bay Lightning went down 0-2 to the Montreal Canadiens.  More on the Lightning from Tom Jones of the Tampa Bay Times. “We didn’t have the puck enough. When we had it, we’ve got to start putting pucks in the areas where we can get them back. We’ve got to get pucks in areas where once we get it, we ...

Lucic spears DeKeyser, Perry spears Benn, Daley sits on Perry, Yahtzee
I guess the NHL's annual start-of-the-playoffs crackdown on horizontal stick fouls only counts regarding obstruction and interference, not spearing, stick-swinging or otherwise using one's stick as an instrument of torture. As noted in the Wings-Bruins quick take, @myregularface showed Milan Lucic spearing Danny DeKeyser in the groin...   And during tonight's Ducks-Stars game, Corey Perry did this to Jamie Benn, per The Score and TSN...

Rangers Need “Killer Instinct” For Their Next Game Against The Flyers
from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, So now Flyers coach Craig Berube is going to have his team revert to its season-long style of carrying the puck into the Rangers’ zone after Thursday’s misguided game plan that featured chip-and-chase hockey basically blew up in their faces. Regardless, it is imperative the Rangers seize this moment to not only grab an immediate two-game advantage in the series, but to send the Flyers back to Philadelphia riddled with doubt for Tues...
