If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 5

Five weeks into the season, and Chicago remains just about the only sure thing right now. The East is stacked top to bottom, and the West isn’t much different. Even the other teams on the outside are shuffling around, trying to make their moves and occasionally making headway. It’s still tough as ever to predict […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 25

Just another week to go, and it’s playoffs time! The final standings are really starting to take shape much more than ever before, but the lower seeds are still very much up for grabs. Set teams are starting to prepare for the postseason while contenders are still making their moves just to get a spot, […]

Rich Peverley Could Return to the Bruins Lineup Sunday

The Boston Bruins have been without the services of Rich Peverley since February 17. Peverley suffered a knee injury and is returning to action faster than expected.  Before Saturday night’s game against the Los Angeles Kings, Peverley participated in pre game warm ups, but did not play. There is a chance that he will play Sunday against […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 24

It’s almost time for the playoffs to begin. There’s certainly no shortage of close contests, and nobody’s giving way easily at all. And this far along, only the top team in each conference has so much as clinched a playoff spot. The action the rest of the way is sure to be cutthroat, so let’s […]

Bruins Interested in Trading for Dustin Brown?

With the NHL trade deadline only a few days away, reports from TSN’s Bob McKenzie say that the Bruins are one of several teams that have a high interest level in Kings forward Dustin Brown. Brown is 27 years old and wears the “C” for the Kings. He plays right wing, and that is the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 20

A full 20 weeks into the season, and the standings are still bunched up, Rangers aside. Divisions are tight, #8 seeds are tight and the President’s Trophy is tight (the only close race involving the Rangers). So much could change in the blink of an eye, let alone the remaining 20+ games, so let’s look […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 19

We’re well into February, and there’s certainly no shortage of drama. The Rangers are leaving the rest of the East in their dust, but the rest of the conference is dog piling over each other. It’s the same way out west, except no spot is safe there. New York is certainly the team to beat, […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 17

Now that we’re into February, time is beginning to become a factor for teams that need to make up ground; teams have anywhere from 29 to 34 games remaining before the playoffs begin, and while it’s not yet time for desperation to set in, concern is starting to creep up. With teams like Detroit and […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 15

January is almost over, and every team has passed the halfway point of the season. Teams are still jostling positions and just about every race is very close. New teams are making playoff waves, further adding to the excitement of the times. Anything could still happen, so let’s look at what would happen if the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 14

We’re already well into the new year, and it’s about the half-way point for the NHL season, too. The Rangers are continuing to make progress. The Penguins are continuing to do the opposite. It’s still very close between #8/#9 in both conferences as well, which will make for some heated battles down the stretch. There […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 13

There have been some big changes in the past week. Both conferences have new leaders. Ottawa and Washington are making waves. Los Angeles is even peeking into the bracket. Teams like Vancouver are improving their leads all around the league. Other races remain tight, though, especially the Wildcard races, so let’s look at what would […]

Tuukka Time in Boston: Bruins Shut Out Kings 3-0

Injuries to captain Zdeno Chara and Steven Kampfer were not a factor in tonight’s victory over Los Angeles. Tuukka Rask was perfect in net and got his first shutout of the season as the Bruins defeated the Kings 3-0. Boston went on the power play on the first shift of the game and didn’t score yet […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 9

It’s still a tough league nine weeks into the season. Pittsburgh is barely clinging onto the East lead, Winnipeg is a win away from a top eight spot, and there have been a few head hit suspensions so far, not to mention key goalie injuries. Boston’s point streak is finally over, while Minnesota is continuing […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 8

Two months into the NHL season, several coaching changes are in order. While that’s sure to shake things up, many surprise teams are still going strong. Florida and Minnesota have healthy leads, Toronto’s still hanging in there, and the Coyotes and Stars are leading the way in the Pacific. Vancouver and Boston are both on […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 7

Thanksgiving is now over, and things are starting to get real interesting. The Bruins are back in control of the Northeast. Pittsburgh is losing its grip. Florida and Minnesota continue to shine. Minnesota has a solid lead in their division, but all the others are just one win away from changing hands. In fact, the […]
