If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 24

There’s less than two weeks left in the schedule, and we’re all getting super excited with the playoff picture starting to shape up. But still, there’s plenty that could change in a whim. Even with the Capitals clinching the East (and with two wins and six points over San Jose) and the magic number for […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Devils, Tuesday March 30th

The Bruins (34-29-12) hit the road this evening to finish up a back-to-back set of games, facing off against the New Jersey Devils (44-26-5). Like last night’s opponent, Buffalo, who handed the B’s a crushing 3-2 home loss, New Jersey also has already clinched a playoff spot. They did so with a win Saturday over […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 23

With about 10 games and less than three weeks left on the schedule, it’s getting desperate for many teams. There have been several surprises this season, especially the Coyotes, who were even in second place in the West Monday, tied with Chicago with 97 points. The Devils and Penguins are fighting over their division, while […]

If The Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 22

We’re rapidly approaching the end of the season, with less than 15 games left now. And the race is still on. Boston has a three-point cushion and a game in hand over the Rangers for the last spot in the East, Detroit just has three points over Calgary out West, and thanks to an embarrassing […]

Devils Jump on Bruins Early, Hang on to Win

The Boston Bruins traveled to New Jersey Monday night to take on the Devils and right away it looked like an absolute blowout. New Jersey jumped on Bruins’ starter Tim Thomas and scored their only three goals in the first period. Thomas was later pulled in the second period, marking his fifth time this season […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Devils, Monday March 15th

The road continues for the Black and Gold this evening, as they take their act to the Garden State to skate with Ilya Kovalchuk, Martin Brodeur, and the rest of the New Jersey Devils (40-24-13). The Bruins (30-25-12), who have gone a mediocre 2-2-1 so far on their season-long seven-game road trip, wrap up this […]

SoB NHL Power Rankings 3-15-10

With the Olympic break over and the home stretch to the playoffs in full swing, Washington has clinched a playoff spot (by clinching their division), and has claimed the top spot on our rankings (by taking down Chicago 4-3). But with much of our usual experts sidelined by depression over the U.S. losing to Canada […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 21

We’re back, after the first week of action following the Olympic break. We’ve seen Pittsburgh open up a nice-sized lead over New Jersey in the Atlantic Division. Washington is still looking like the President’s Trophy winner, but Chicago is closing the gap on San Jose for the top spot in the West. The East’s bracket […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 20

With the Olympic Break setting in, and Ryan Miller having looked pretty good against Switzerland (Go USA! Boo Federer!), plenty of NHL players are getting a much needed rest before play resumes, while others are getting a chance to test their mettle in the international arena. Even with a shortened week, we’ve seen plenty of […]

SoB NHL Power Rankings 2-14-10

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone. This time around, three experts have shown their love for their favorite hockey teams, as well as predicted who will win Men’s Olympic gold at ice hockey, and who will lose miserably. Too bad the Canadian women weren’t eligible for picks, or their 18-0 defeat of Slovakia Saturday would have turned […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 19

After another week, we’ve seen plenty of surprises. The Lightning have shot up the rankings, as have the Bruins, after favoring Tuukka Rask over their dead-weight Thomas. Buffalo is maintaining their division lead, but only by tiebreakers after Ottawa has kept surging forward. Speaking of which, the West’s #3 seed has a worse record than […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 18

There’s been plenty of movement over the past week, particularly thanks to a jam-packed Eastern Conference. Teams jumping five spots after one game is becoming a commonplace event, which makes them slide out of the picture just as quickly as they entered it. It’s that tumultuousness that’s the reason for the Bruins, despite their very […]

SoB NHL Power Rankings 1-31-10

It’s time, once again, for the SoB NHL power rankings. Our four experts have selected their picks, in addition to predictions for who will finish the season with the NHL’s best and worst records.

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 17

With around 30 games left to go in the season, much is still up in the air. The Lightning, #13 in the East, are only three points out of the playoffs. The Blues, #13 in the West, are only five out. Four East teams are tied for #6 through #9. The Hurricanes are no longer […]
