Round 2 of the NHL playoffs is underway, but let’s take a quick look back at the Best and Worst from the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The book on the Penguins has always been to get inside their head with physicality. Enter Capitals forward Tom Wilson who may be just the person to disrupt the Pens. Whether what he does is legal on the ice is a completely different story.
With a name like Jay Beagle, it is taking everything in me to not make a joke about fetch. Get it? His last name is a type of dog! Now that we have that behind us, this has to be one of the goofiest moments of the playoffs thus far. Anytime a player’s stick gets […]
It was reported first by Sons of Penn that Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Evgeny Medvedev was arrested on suspicion of a DUI.
On December 17th, 2015 the Anaheim Ducks had 27 points. They were tied for dead last in the league, and three points behind the Edmonton Oilers. In a league that pretty much has its playoff teams settled by Thanksgiving, that’s an impossible hole to climb out of. But Bruce Boudreau and the Ducks did it, […]
It’s not that rare to see hockey players leave a game with an injury, but it’s rarer to see that happen to the head coach.

One of the silliest things an NHL general manager can do during free agency is chase a big name just because he’s a big name in a weak free agent crop. That’s exactly what Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon did when he signed David Bolland to a five-year, $27.5 million contract prior to the […]
Dan Boyle’s short tenure with the New York Rangers is over. The defenseman had a tough end to his stint in the Big Apple after signing a two-year deal worth $9 million in 2014. Boyle was a good possession player while scoring 24 points in 2015-16, but ended his career in the press box as a healthy […]
