How did the entire NHL pass on Alex DeBrincat?

First off, let me tell you something. I’m not a big hockey analytics guy yet (mostly because I don’t understand all of them, but I’m working on it). However, I’m a big fan of one metric that you can judge forwards on: goals. Chicago Blackhawks prospect Alex DeBrincat scores buckets full. The Michigan born winger […]

5 Things Female Hockey Fans Want You to Know

              By: Piper CJ (@piedpipercj) I love being a woman. I love hockey. I don’t always love being a female hockey fan. To my ladies out there: hey girl, I see you. But this message tailored toward our bros—to the men in the hyper masculine, male-dominated world of hockey. […]

OH MY CAPTAIN!

OH MY CAPTAIN!

The Los Angeles Kings have been dealing with injuries ever since the World Cup of Hockey when Marian Gaborik suffered a lower body injury that has kept him out of action and franchise goaltender Jonathan Quick lasted just one period into game one in San Jose. Saturday night in Ottawa, backup goaltender Jeff Zatkoff left […]

Close games can make-or-break Arizona in a tight Western Conference

By Jesse Bonello (@JesseBonello) The Arizona Coyotes are coming off a 3-2 loss at the hands of the Winnipeg Jets last night where they found themselves in yet another one-goal game. Eight of the Coyotes’ first 13 games have finished with a one-goal differential. They’ve gone 4-4-0 in those eight games with all four losses […]

Florida’s Revamped Defence Working Wonders

By Chris Thomas (@CorsiGuy) Going into the offseason, Florida Panthers’ management was aware that their defence was not going to cut it. Outside of the top pair of Brian Campbell and Aaron Ekblad, there was very little to inspire confidence on the Panther’s blueline. Dmitry Kulikov and Erik Gudbranson were both major possession drags and […]

Canucks run their streak to 9 games

Canucks run their streak to 9 games

The last time we saw a sports team perform this badly is probably with the Washingon Generals, the sad sack basketball team which are consistently the whipping boys of the Harlem Globtrotters…the difference is those games are all set up….and despite their endless losing streak at least the games are exciting….not so with the Vancouver […]

By: Teddy Accardi The New Jersey Devils finally won a road game. Mike Cammalleri finally scored a goal. These firsts of the season were warmly welcomed by the Devils and their fans alike as New Jersey topped Carolina 4-1 in Raleigh Sunday night.

Arizona looking to extend winning streak in Anaheim

By Jesse Bonello The Arizona Coyotes are looking to extend their two-game winning streak tonight against the Anaheim Ducks. The Coyotes have won three of their last four games and boosted their record from 1-5-0 to 4-6-0. Louis Domingue has played well lately. His last two starts have been impressive where he’s made 74 saves […]

Canucks scoring woes continue.

Canucks scoring woes continue.

In the last 5 games the Vancouver Canucks have scored about as much as Clay Aiken at a Miss Universe Pageant…In other words not much. It was another pitiful effort on Thursday night as the Canucks took their travelling circus to their second road stop in the Nations capital against the Ottawa Senators. Now granted […]

The Wild Lose at Home and it’s Your Fault (Probably)

By Piper CJ (@PiedPiperCJ) It’s time to read too much into a single game and make rash guesstimates about what it means for our future as Wild fans. The final score read 2-1 in Tuesday’s match against Buffalo, ending the  franchise’s exciting and history-making streak of shutouts. It was also the end of the Wild’s undefeated at-home […]
