Rangers Complete Trade with Blue Jackets for Rick Nash

Over the past couple years, the New York Rangers have been a very active team during the offseason.  Back in 2009, the Rangers signed Slovakian superstar Marian Gaborik to a five-year deal. In the previous offseason, the Rangers signed Brad Richards, who happened to be the top overall unrestricted free agent in 2011. Even after […]

Bruins Take Goaltender Malcolm Subban at 2012 NHL Draft

With their first round pick, you would think the Bruins would look for a goal-scoring forward with size to help a mediocre power play. They could also pick up a defenseman that could log on a solid amount of ice time. That was not the case, though, come late in the first round of the […]

Will the Bruins Trade Tim Thomas?

After a record-breaking 2010-2011 season in which he won the Conn Smythe and Vezina trophies, Tim Thomas was the goalie you wanted to have on your team. It didn’t matter if he faced seven shots or 70 shots; he would bring his A game night in and night out. His consistent play led the Bruins […]

Holtby Steps Up Again as Bruins Fall to Capitals in Double OT

When the Capitals two goaltenders Tomas Vokoun and Michal Neuvirth went down late in the season with injuries, most people thought the playoffs were practically over for them. Well, that hasn’t been the case, as 22-year-old Brandon Holtby has been as good as his predecessors, if not better. He stood on his head in Game […]

Bruins Beat Senators Despite Being Outshot 45-27

In his first start as a Bruin, Anton Khudobin was brilliant with 44 saves on 45 shots.  Khudobin’s first NHL start since January 18th 2011 makes you wonder why the B’s wasted money on signing a guy like Marty Turco. The Bruins opened up the game scoring their first goal at 10:36 of the first […]

Win-Win Situation in Bruins’ Victory Over Islanders

Marty Turco didn’t have all that much work in the Bruins 6-3 win over the Islanders, stopping 19 out of 22 shots. Turco did stand tall at points in the game, making point-blank saves on multiple opportunities. That’s pretty much all you need from a backup goaltender, as he put his team in a position […]

Bruins Top Lightning, Get a Critical 2 Points

Entering Tuesday’s game, I didn’t know what to expect as the Bruins were playing a team that beat them 6-1 earlier in the month. In that game, the Bruins got some inconsistent goaltending play from both Marty Turco and Tim Thomas. Turco started the game and was shortly pulled in the first period. Tim Thomas came […]

Another March Sadness for Boston College

It was another disappointing year for the boys of BC, as they failed to qualify for the NCAA Tournament and the NIT.  The Eagles were at the bottom of the ACC with a horrible overall record of 9-22. Our beloved BC hasn’t qualified for the big dance since the 2009 season, when they were a […]
