SoB NHL Power Rankings 12-20-09

Hello, and welcome to Sports of Boston’s premiere of our bi-weekly NHL power rankings. Four SOB experts have ranked the top ten NHL teams so far, three have submitted their choices for surprisingly good and bad teams so far, and the results are partly stable and partly in disagreement. The Capitals, Kings, Predators, and Avalanche […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 11

The brackets are suddenly looking so much more interesting. Nobody gave the Kings a thought before the season, but now they’re on top in the West. And of 15 teams in the East, eight will go to the playoffs, and #14 (Tampa Bay) is only two points away from being tied for the last spot. […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 10

The previous week has been quite fun, with teams dropping and entering in dramatic fashion. A full three of the divisions are currently contested by a single point or less. Only the Capitals have an iron grip on theirs. Even the Red Wings are only a point out. Even though we’re two and a half […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 9

There’s still plenty of competition for titles and seeding. The Bruins have forced their way back into divisional contention. The Penguins and Capitals keep trading the title back and forth. Also, the Avalanche have recently dropped in favor of the Flames. Even Toronto’s making a push for a spot. A grand total of five teams […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 8

It’s been an interesting week. Two former division leaders have reclaimed their thrones. The Predators are actually in second place in the Central Division. The Bruins are actually looking better, though more shutouts and regulation victories would be easier to swallow. And the Hurricanes are still bottom feeders to top it off. With two divisional […]

Newbies Key 3-2 Bruins Win

Maybe the Bruins hit rock bottom, then bounced back up. Trailing 1-0 then 2-1 at home to Nashville (dead last in the Central Division), Boston came from behind to pull out an important 3-2 win on Wednesday. With All-Star (and last year’s leading scorer) Marc Savard joining Milan Lucic and Shawn Thornton on the injury […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Predators, Wednesday 10-21

The Bruins will showcase their new-look roster Wednesday night at the TD Garden, hosting the lowly Nashville Predators. Boston GM Peter Chiarelli, in an effort to shake up his under-performing squad, sent winger Chuck Kobasew to Minnesota over the weekend, in exchange for minor leaguer Craig Waller, unsigned draft choice Alexander Fallstrom, and a draft […]

Predators Beat Bruins in Shootout

Coming off a 1-0 loss against the Devils and a rough 0-2-1 stretch, the Bruins could’ve really used a win against the mediocre Predators. At this juncture, they’d definitely settle for a point. The Bruins barely salvaged that point Saturday night against the Predators thanks to a game-tying goal from Zdeno Chara at 18:44 of […]
