Hey It’s The Playoffs
from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, The Stars (cover your ears, kids) had clearly instigated facial contact with Anaheim’s best player and captain, and a Stars player, Antoine Roussel, was witnessed actually swinging back when Getzlaf snapped and started punching him in the face. Imagine — in a hockey game, no less. Egads. “Our team wouldn’t do that” was the thrust of Ducks coach Boudreau’s message when asked if he thought it right that Dallas had the ...

Bylsma Wants The Penguins To Play Playoff Hockey
from Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Coach Dan Bylsma on Thursday had no injury updates or lineup changes following the Penguins' 4-3 overtime loss to Columbus the previous night. He offered plenty of other material, however. Bylsma said goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury “should have stayed in the net” on Brandon Dubinsky's tying goal late in regulation. Most revealing, though, was that Bylsma questioned his team's effort after it blew a three-goal ...

Last Night’s Columbus Win May Have Put Them On The NHL Map
from Aaron Portzline of Puck-Rakers, Nationwide Arena is mostly empty this morning, save for a few workers milling about. Blue Jackets coaches arrived early to do what they do -- review film, get updates on injured players, strategize for Saturday's Game 5 -- but players were given a day off to rest weary legs and bruised bones. Still, there was an afterglow in Nationwide, a lingering electricity from the Blue Jackets' rousing 4-3 overtime win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesda...

Matt Cooke On His Suspension
from Michael Russo of Russo's Rants, Matt Cooke, suspended seven games for injuring Colorado Avalanche defenseman Tyson Barrie with a knee-on-knee hit Monday night, addressed the media this afternoon. Cooke didn’t field questions but made an unwritten statement. “First and foremost, I want to say that I’m disappointed and sorry that Tyson Barrie can’t play for the Colorado Avalanche tonight. I wish that he could. Unfortunately, it was not my intent to coll...

Wrist Surgery Up Next For Ben Bishop
from Damian Cristodero of Lightning Strikes, Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop will have surgery on his injured right wrist next week to repair ligament damage that has bothered him since January. Bishop will have the surgery at the Cleveland Clinic. He said he will be in a cast for six weeks. Total rehab time is three to four months, though he said he is confident he will be ready for the start of training camp. Additionally, Bishop finally confirmed he had a left elbow injury tha...

Penguins Should Play To Their Strength
from Ryan Dixon of Sportsnet, Crosby can’t be held without a goal much longer; Evgeni Malkin is probably on the verge of a four-point game; Fleury is going to make some more jaw-dropping saves. And when it happens, we’ll all be tempted to once again believe in this giant Cup tease. But that faith is misplaced. As Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review pointed out, of the Pens’ past 20 playoff losses dating back to 2010, nine have occurred after the team blew a t...

NHL Short Notes
DUBINSKY, FOLIGNO HELP BLUE JACKETS POST HISTORIC COMEBACK Brandon Dubinsky scored the tying goal with 22.5 seconds remaining in regulation and Nick Foligno potted the winner 2:49 into overtime to help the Blue Jackets overcome an early three-goal deficit and even their series with the Penguins. * According to the Elias Sports Bureau, this marks the first series in Stanley Cup Playoffs history in which four consecutive games have been won by a team trailing by two or more goals: Game 1...

Your Frank J. Selke Trophy Finalists
NEW YORK (April 24, 2014) -- Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins, Anze Kopitar of the Los Angeles Kings and Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks are the three finalists for the 2013-14 Frank J. Selke Trophy, which is awarded “to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game,” the National Hockey League announced today.

Smart Spenders
NEW YORK (April 24, 2014) – Today Bloomberg Businessweek released its Smartest Spenders in Sports 2014 ranking of all 122 franchises in the NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB, rating them based on how much they spent in player payroll for every win during the last five seasons. The NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks come in #1 thanks to their five playoff trips, two Stanley Cups, and placing 13th in spending. The Blackhawks are followed by MLB’s St. Louis Cardinals a...

Playoff Goalies, The Good And Bad
from Ryan Kennedy of The Hockey News, We’re only a week into the playoffs and already there have been an assortment of twists and turns to deal with. The Habs are through to the second round, while the Kings are almost through, period. And while goaltending can’t explain every result, it has been prominent – as Pittsburgh found out last night. With that in mind, I present the Stanley Cup faith-o-meter. Adjust your rosaries accordingly. Ken Dryden-Approved Tuukka R...

The Drama Of The Playoffs
from Damien Cox of The Spin, If the Stanley Cup playoffs continue as they are, they may have to build bigger buildings. As has always been the case, lead changes and games that aren't over once one team jumps ahead by a goal or more make for tremendous hockey whenever it happens, and these playoffs are delivering those kinds of contests by the bushel. --Teams have overcome two-goal deficits to win eight times in the first round so far this spring, and the St. Louis Blues almost m...

A Must Win For The Kings
from Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Register, How does a strength become a weakness, seemingly in a matter of days? That’s the riddle the Kings are trying to solve in this first-round series against San Jose, and they’re running out of time. The Kings, who allowed the fewest number of goals in the NHL in the regular season, have given up 17 in this series, and face a 3-0 deficit going into Thursday night’s Game 4 at Staples Center. “Anything is possible,&...

The Failing Wings
from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, Another Boston win here Thursday would be the de facto series closer. The difference in these two teams is as obvious as it is stark for the Wings. Their alleged speed has been neutralized, if nonexistent. Their goaltending less than average. Their will, sense of urgency, and pushback just not there. True, it’s the playoffs, and crazy things do happen, but right now it would be crazy to think this ends well for the Wings. Their feet h...

Morning Line
So however many offences you want to include on Cooke’s rap sheet – and technically, he does not qualify for repeat-offender status because he has no fines or suspensions on his resume the past 18 months – the fact is, he represents a clear and present danger to NHL opponents whenever he is on the ice. The sooner he follows the Patrick Kaletas and Sean Averys of the world into obscurity, the better off everyone will be. -Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail where you can...

Videos- In The Room With Dallas And Columbus
NHL.com followed both the Dallas Stars and Columbus Blue Jackets into the dressing room after their wins last night. It is not often you get to see a coach talking to his team post-game. The Dallas Stars are up first...   Then the Columbus Blue Jackets...
