If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 6

The red-hot Capitals (70 goals, by the way), show no signs of stopping anytime soon, especially when they’re gunning for another President’s Trophy. Though the Red Wings are making a challenge. And Boston’s doing quite well, when they’re on the road, anyway. Buffalo’s making a push to become relevant again, while St Louis is slipping. […]

Senators Shut Out Bruins 2-0, Hand B’s 4th Loss in Five Games

The Bruins dropped their fourth game in their last five, and fell to third place in their division, as Ottawa’s Brian Elliott stonewalled them with a 2-0 31-save shutout. Boston goalie Tim Thomas lost for the first time this season his record dropped to 8-1-0. Erik Karlsson and Daniel Alfredsson scored for the Senators, who […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 5

Tim Thomas has gone downhill fast, but so have the Penguins. With three games in hand, Boston can take the division if those games in hands are wins, and they keep pace with Washington otherwise. Or with just three points from those games, Boston can displace Montreal. Either way, they’ve got plenty of room to […]

Bruins Keep Rolling, Slaughter Senators 4-0

This crop of Bruins is special, and they once again rallied behind Tim Thomas Saturday to take down the Ottawa Senators 4-0. And it didn’t take long to begin the delightful process of ripping the collective hearts out of everyone in Ottawa. The Senators did make a good save point-blank 3:28 in, but whatever. David […]

Lets Get Puck’d: NHL Eastern Conference Preview

The puck drops on yet another NHL hockey season this week, and with so much anticipation and expectation building about our local Bruins team, it felt like quite the long summer having to wait it out before the B’s get their chance at erasing the painfully embarrassing playoff exit last spring. Boston has retooled their […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 25

Can you believe the season ends this Sunday, and you won’t see this article again until October? Can you believe the Capital have clinched the President’s Trophy, and when they did so, only one other team had even clinched a division? After Tuesday, the West is all wrapped up in terms of the elite eight, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
